Migration Checklist for 2018 LTS
Here's your checklist to migrate from 2018.2 to 2018 LTS:
  • You should have Unity 2018 LTS installed via the Unity Hub.
  • Create a new empty project in Unity.
  • Install the packages used in your project using Package Manager (Window > Package Manager).
  • On your local disk, copy the Assets folder from your project and use it to completely overwrite the Assets folder in your empty project.
  • Staying on your local disk, copy all files in the ProjectSettings folder except ProjectVersion.txt, and use these to overwrite the same files inside the ProjectSettings folder in your empty project.
  • Return to Unity. Unity will rebuild your project's asset library. If Unity prompts you to reload the scene, click Yes.
