The Best Unity Resources I’ve Used

BenTristemMovie1

Learn To Code 2.0 is a vast improvement over the original installment. It provides a comprehensive coverage for all things Unity 2017, including the new Timeline and Tilemapping features. Where the original course suffered from an ultra-slow pacing, poor coverage of C#, and poor editing, the new V2 has seen improvement. The new optimised pacing combined with the Spiral Curriculum will have beginners to Unity in total engagement. While still under development, this course is heading in a promising direction.

Unity In Action – Second Edition

Released 2017 – Last Update 2018

UIA

Unity In Action is one of the strongest books out covering Unity 2017. With its aggressive hands-on approach, UIA will have you working from scratch as opposed to using prefabs. This results in a deeper understanding of what exactly is going on behind the scenes. The book offers long, exhaustive instructions that leave nothing to the imagination. Reader’s going in with a background in C# will feel very comfortable here, and will probably get a lot more out of it than those going in with no experience. If you prefer reading to watching, then this is the Unity resource to get. See the full review here. »

This Udemy course meticulously covers the very core of shaders. From surface shaders, to vertex and fragment shaders, students will learn all of the math, theory, and syntax involved. While not offering instructions on how to build every shader out there, the course has a more narrow focus that will lead you to being able to further experiment on your own.

Best Free Resource: Unity Learn

 

Time and time again I have found myself on Unity’s Official tutorial site. When something in the Unity Documents doesn’t make sense, I always seem to find a crash course on what I’m trying to learn here. The reason I sometimes don’t need a book on a subject is because I found everything I needed right here. Visit Unity Learn.

    Hello ,

    I saw your tweet about animals and thought I will check your website. I like it!

    I love pets. I have two beautiful thai cats called Tammy(female) and Yommo(male). Yommo is 1 year older than Tommy. He acts like a bigger brother for her. 🙂
    I have even created an Instagram account for them ( https://www.instagram.com/tayo_home/ ) and probably soon they will have more followers than me (kinda funny).

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Keep up the good work on your blog.

    Regards
