Creating Plugin for Xamarin Forms

I need to create plugin for XF. I have created a project based on @JamesMontemagno `s Plugin creator
But I have solution structure not same like at video tutorial. And all newly created files have Build Action = None. I can change this Build Action to C# compiler but I don't know why this problem is always raising.
Do I really need to use this project template to create my own plugin OR I can just create new Blank Xamarin project and publish it on NuGet (will this plugin be installed correctly in other projects in the second case)? What are the advantages of using James template except the previously created structure?

I have Visual Studio 2017 Professional 15.9.6
Thanks all for responding.
