Get latest binary release
Binary releases are prepackaged and thus, tied to a specific version of CARLA. In order to get the latest, erase the previous one and follow the procedure stated in the quick start installation. In the CARLA repository, releases are listed in Development and there is also a highly experimental Nightly build containing the current state of CARLA up to date:
Update Linux and Windows build
Make sure to be in the local
master branch before updating to then merge or rebase the changes to other branches.
The process of updating is quite similar and straightforward for both platforms:
Clean the build
Go to the CARLA main directory and delete binaries and temporals generated by previous build:
git checkout master make clean
Pull from origin
Get the current version from
master in the CARLA repository:
git pull origin master
Download the assets
- Erase the previous content in
- Go to
- Download the content for
- Extract the new content in
In order to work with the current content used by developers in the CARLA team, follow the get development assets section right below this one.
Launch the server
Run the editor with the spectator view to be sure that everything worked properly:
Get development assets
The 3D assets, models, and maps have also a public git repository where the CARLA team regularly pushes latest updates. However, using this version of the content is only recommended to developers, as it may contain unfinished maps and/or models.
In order to handle this repository it is highly recommended to install git-lfs, as it works faster with large binary files, and these are modified regularly. To clone this repository go to the main CARLA directory and run the following command:
git clone https://bitbucket.org/carla-simulator/carla-content Unreal/CarlaUE4/Content/Carla
/Carla folder containing the assets before using the previous command. Otherwise, an error will show.
