C# - TreehouseDefense

Can someone please clarify why this code is not working? It's saying that the MapLocation and Invader cannot be found, so if you could please guide me in the right direction, that would be greatly appreciated.

namespace TreehouseDefense { class Tower { private const int _range = 1; private const int _power = 1;

    readonly MapLocation _location;

    public Tower(MapLocation location)
    {
        _location = location;
    }

    public void FireOnInvaders(Invader[] invaders)
    {
        foreach (Invader invader in invaders)
        {
            if(invader.IsActive && _location.InRangeOf(invader.Location, _range))
            {
                invader.DecreaseHealth(_power);
                break;
            }
        }
    }
}

}

Did you include all source files in your build?

This project has multiple source files, so you have to name them (or use a wildcard) to include them all when you compile.

A typical build command would be: mcs -out:TreehouseDefense.exe *.cs

The "*.cs" in the command is a wildcard that will include all the source files.
