Build Output folderSo the content to be zipped will be in "bin\Bundle" folder and there I can find the "Contents" subfolder best suited for placing my folder with the additional files - in this case called "Parts":   

Folder with additional content

Now after every build of the project the files will be copied into the zip file:
