Hands-On Unity 2020 Game Development

By: Nicolas Alejandro Borromeo

Overview of this book

Over the years, the Unity game engine has extended its scope from just being about creating video games to building AR/VR experiences, complex simulations, real-time realistic rendering, films, and serious games for training and education. Its features for implementing gameplay, graphics, and customization using C# programming make Unity a comprehensive platform for developing professional-level, rich experiences. With this book, you'll be able to build impressive Unity projects in a step-by-step manner and apply your knowledge of Unity concepts to create a real-world game. Complete with hands-on tutorials and projects, this easy-to-follow guide will show you how to develop your first complete game using a variety of Unity tools. As you make progress, you'll learn how to make the most of the Unity Editor and create scripts using the C# programming language. This Unity game development book will then take you through integrating graphics, sound, and animations and manipulating physics to create impressive mechanics for your games. You'll also learn how to code a simple AI agent to challenge the user and use profiling tools to ensure that the code runs in a performant way. Finally, you'll get to grips with Unity's AR Foundation for creating AR experiences for 3D apps and games. By the end of this book, you'll have developed a complete game and will have built a solid foundation using Unity's tooling ecosystem to develop game projects of any scale.

Chapter 20: Building the Project

Chapter 5: Importing and Integrating Assets

In the previous chapter, we created the prototype of our level. Now, let's suppose that we have coded the game and tested it, validating the idea. With that, it's time to change the prototype art to the real finished art. Actually, we are going to code the game in Part 3, but for learning purposes, let's just skip that part for now. In order to use final assets, we need to learn how to get them (images, 3D models, and so on), how to import them into Unity, and how to use them in our scene.

In this chapter, we will examine the following topics:

  • Importing assets
  • Integrating assets
  • Configuring assets
