Was this course revamped?

I noticed that it said I had no progress in this course. When I looked at the videos, they were using a more recent version of Unity than before. In addition, I noticed we weren't naming the project 'Frogs and Logs' like before. However, I did not notice an updated version of this course anywhere on the roadmap, was this course revamped?

Hi everyone,

Yes, many of the videos in this course has been updated to reflect some of the latest changes made in Unity 5.6

I apologize that progress was not able to be maintained. We're able to replace videos "inline" but if the number of videos in a course increases or decreases, we have to duplicate it as a new course to maintain database integrity. So, even though this course looks almost identical to the old one and the material is mostly the same, our system considers it to be a new and separate course from the old one.

If you look at your profile, you should still have all of the badges and points you earned from the previous course. This new course will give you new badges (although they'll look the same) and additional points.

I hope that someday we can have a better solution to this, but unfortunately that's the way things have to be right now. I'm really sorry for the confusion!

That's a great question! I took some Unity courses on other sites but found they moved too fast. I came back to Treehouse to follow Nick's track on game development only to find I have no progress on the 6 hour course I already completed. My OCD (I use that phrase playfully of course) is forcing me to do the course again, just to complete the rest of the track, but I have to say I am disappointed.
