Proper usage of EditorUserBuildSettings and BuildOptions

Hey all,

I'm trying to automate our build process here a little, and I'm not sure I truly understand the proper usage of EditorUserBuildSettings and BuildOptions. Here is a very basic implementation of what I am trying to achieve, hopefully it is enough to get my point across:

Note: it should be implied that for this example I am functioning under iOS build settings.

     EditorUserBuildSettings.appendProject = true; //if we're building iOS, insure we're always appending and not building fresh every time.
     BuildOptions customBuildOptions =  EditorUserBuildSettings.architectureFlags;
     BuildTarget customBuildTarget=EditorUserBuildSettings.activeBuildTarget;
     string savepath = EditorUtility.SaveFolderPanel("Build "+customBuildTarget,        EditorUserBuildSettings.GetBuildLocation(customBuildTarget), "");
     if(savepath.Length != 0)
         string dir=System.IO.Path.GetDirectoryName(savepath); //get build directory
         string[] scenes=new string[EditorBuildSettings.scenes.Length];
         for(int i=0;i < EditorBuildSettings.scenes.Length; ++i)
         // Do some preprocess stuff right here
         EditorUserBuildSettings.SetBuildLocation(customBuildTarget,dir); //store new location for this type of build            
         BuildPipeline.BuildPlayer(scenes, savepath, BuildTarget.iPhone, customBuildOptions);
         // Do some posprocess stuff right here

My expectations are that the XCode project will be appended - however it does not seem like that is the case, it writes a fresh project to my specified directory every time I run the script.

I tried scouring the docs but, as with most of the Editor API, documentation is really non-existant and lacking any form of example.

Thanks in advance

for this particular script, I think you could add this line up top:

 EditorUserBuildSettings.architectureFlags = EditorUserBuildSettings.architectureFlags | BuildOptions.AcceptExternalModificationsToPlayer;
