Learn Unity 3D Game Engine

Learn Unity 3D Game Engine
In Unity 4.3, the engine added native 2D workflows, including Sprites, animation and physics, amongst other improvements. This is bringing all manner of new users to the world of Unity game development, which is great for the community, but to keep users happy, we at Learn Unity have decided to launch a dedicated 2D site to grab all the 2D tutorials and resources into one place. Unity Developer Alex Zanfir has teamed up with Pluralsight, the online training resource, to create a course on Unity. During the course you’ll learn about creating a first person game with creepy attacking spiders. Unity official Learn area has launched a gritty reboot of its Live training channel. There was a live training service the past few years, but this was put on hold whilst new options for broadcast were sought.

SkillSwap: Making A 2 Player 2D Game With Unity [UPDATE] We have a brand new Unity tutorial which uses the new built-in 2D sprite and physics systems that Unity added in version 4.3. You can find it here. I recently presented a step-by-step workshop titled “Making A 2D Sprite-Based Game With Unity” to the Toronto SkillSwap community which is “A collaborative group for folks interested in sharing their skills and training with other developers in Toronto, and for folks interested in learning!”. Around 50 people showed up to the 3 hour workshop and although we tried our hardest to get through all of the content, we only completed about 1/2 of the project before it was time to move on to the beer drinking portion of the event. So while I still had all of the project steps fresh in my mind, I figured it would be a good idea to go through the workshop at home and screencast the whole thing so that everyone could get a chance to follow along with the complete tutorial.

Get Started With Games Unpacked Step into the world of games development with Games Unpacked, developed by Abertay University Games Unpacked uses a programme called Unity, which is used by some of the top, professional game developers. Abertay University chose Unity because it offers one of the friendliest screens to help get you started – and they provide a version for free! Unity is a programme for creating games and applications.

Hexagonal grid: Generating the grid Why hexagonal grid is better than square grid If even such well established strategy franchise like “Civilisation” adapted hex grids in their latest game, there should be a good reason to use them, right? Well, there are a couple of good reasons why people choose hex grids. Firstly, in hex grids distance between the center of each hex cell and the center of all six surrounding hexes is the same, while it’s not the case with square grids where the distance from the center of each square cell to the center of diagonal adjacent cells is not the same as the distance to the four adjacent cells the square shares an edge with.

Getting started with C# for Unity3D - Everyday 3D Unity3D offers a choice between 3 different programming languages: JavaScript, C# and Boo. Each of them has its pros and cons, but for me C# almost immediately came out as a clear winner. That is because it is fully object oriented and it's syntax is similar to Java and Actionscript 3, both of which I am experienced with. However, before I started to play with Unity3D, I never wrote a single line in C#, so I had to learn it from scratch. As you probably know C# was originally developed by Microsoft and is widely used in the .NET framework as well as in Silverlight development. It is important to understand however that learning C# for Unity3D is not the same thing as learning the .NET platform.

2d : Hexagonal Grid Beginner Generate Hexgrid I am going to walk you through on how to do the calculation. The line on the left is 1 unit long. I am going to skip the trigonometry part and go straight to the calculation The center of the blue hex is ( 0, 0 ), the center of the green is ( root(3) * unit-radius, 0 ), and the center of the red hex is ( root(3) * unit-radius , 1.5 * unit-radius).

50 Tips for Working with Unity (Best Practices) About these tips (Edit: August 2016. I have revised these tips. You can find the new list here.) These tips are not all applicable to every project. They are based on my experience with projects with small teams from 3 to 20 people.There’s is a price for structure, re-usability, clarity, and so on — team size and project size determine whether that price should be paid.Many tips are a matter of taste (there may be rivalling but equally good techniques for any tip listed here).Some tips may fly in the face of conventional Unity development.

John Warner's Blog - The top 5 things I've learned as a Unity developer The following blog post, unless otherwise noted, was written by a member of Gamasutra’s community. The thoughts and opinions expressed are those of the writer and not Gamasutra or its parent company. Unity is a fantastic game development platform for many reasons, one of which being the clean, accessible way its component-oriented platform is designed. Getting Started In Unity – A Rookie’s Guide - Whiskeybarrel Studios Like many of my game development peers, I come from a Flash background. Over ten years of experience, in fact. In hindsight, I think it’s actually far too long to be using the one development tool exclusively – especially when the rug is pulled out from under you by a self-serving prat. In truth, I kind of shot myself in the foot by not exposing myself to other languages until this year.

“unity” Tutorials - Tuts+ Screen wrapping, as seen in Asteroids, Pac-Man, Star Control, and VVVVVV, is a gameplay effect that can add an interesting twist to your games. The edges of the screen connect to their opposing edges, so an object leaving one side will reappear on the other. Here, I'll show you how to achieve this effect in Unity. Runner, a Unity C# Tutorial In this tutorial we'll create a very simple endless running game. You'll learn to generate a layered background; reuse objects; use simple physics; detect input to make the player jump; implement a power-up; write a small event manager; switch stuff on and off on demand; make a minimal GUI. You're assumed to know your way around Unity's editor and know the basics of creating C# scripts. If you've completed the Clock tutorial you're good to go.

Unity Game Starter Kit for Windows Store and Windows Phone Store games I have created a simple game that you can download, play with and submit to the store – both to Windows Store and Windows Phone Store – reching millions of users world wide. It contains the basic functionality of a 2d sidescrolling shooter game. This game starts simple, then after level 3 – more enemies will come, and after level 4 there is a possibility that a harder enemy that takes two shots to kill will spawn. Alex Rose's Blog - Animation in 2D Unity Games: In-Depth Starter Guide The following blog post, unless otherwise noted, was written by a member of Gamasutra’s community. The thoughts and opinions expressed are those of the writer and not Gamasutra or its parent company. So, Unity recently announced extra 2D game support, with the addition of Box 2D physics and a sprite manager. But there’s a few tricks you still need to keep in mind. Changing the images frame by frame is just the tip of the iceberg for animation; to really make your game run beautifully, you have to understand how to use translation and rotation to your advantage.
