English [Auto] Say What's up everybody Mark Price here at Dev slopes dot com. And welcome to the wide world of unity 3D game development. We're going to start off today by downloading and installing unity 3D. And so as you can see here unity 3D dot com is the Web site you want to go to. And let's talk about a few things. Most importantly is unity free. Yes it is absolutely free. And the pricing model on unity is absolutely amazing OK and that's for the personal edition here. So if we scroll down here you learn about all the different features of unity what comes with that. Links to how to learn. Case studies on unity why you should use it but you're taking this course here already here so let's dive in over here to the pricing. OK. Free no credit card required Download now. What's really cool about the free version is that it pretty much has most everything that you need to build games. Some of the big things are. Can I publish a game. Yes you can you can publish a game on the free version but they will have a unity 3D logo splash screen on your games. And here's a few frequently asked questions. As long as you have an annual revenue capacity or funds raised capacity of less than 100000 per fiscal year you can create with personal So if you haven't made more than $100000 a year for your company that's making games OK. You can use unity free does unity take royalties. Unity is royalty free. We don't charge any per title basis or require a revenue share model. OK. And the reason why is because they have a monthly subscription model. If you're making more than $100000 a year. So pretty good stuff right. Let's go and download now. And it's installed the download assistant and the process is very similar for PC I'm just following the steps and mindlessly agreeing to these terms of services here. And this is currently unity five point four point one EF 1 and they've got documentation and standard assets. They've also got example projects and they also have support for Iowa TVO s and other platforms as well. For right now let's go ahead and install the standard assets that it comes with documentation and unity itself. I'll ask you for your password if you're on Mac and I'm going to like the Macintosh harddrive and we're going to install it now. OK we have finished downloading here. The installation was successful and in my case it popped up a window here. Surely Monon developed icon and unity 3D icon. So I'm going go ahead and close this window here and I'm going to personally drag the unity icon over here and the Monteux icon over here just so I can have them here on my dark cool clothes out of this and I'm going to right click to eject the unity download assistant and double click the unity icon to load unity and make sure everything worked as it was supposed to. Get if you don't have a unity account you're going to want to get one they are free. And here's the reason why. Because one is they'll sink some things off on and off line for you like project files and things like that. But more importantly if you buy assets from the Unity assets store you're going to want to be able to have access to those through your account. So it's important to create an account if you don't have one already. I do have one so I'm going to go ahead and enter mine now. And I've signed in and here we are looking good. So projects standard assets example project are getting started and we can go ahead and open up the standard assets example Project K Click Continue Oh I see OK so you're going to see a window like this. Now mine has a standard acid's example project and yours may not and that's because I previously had unity on here and had that project on there. And so what we're going to do is we're just going to go ahead and click. Plus new to create a new project there and you can just give it any name you want. We'll call this test project just to make sure everything is where it needs to be. You can set an organization name. You can set it as a 3D game or 2d game. This is all looking great here. Grading the project and drastic so unity 3-D is now officially installed and it's running here on the screen. If you are loading it for the first time like we are in this case here it may take a while to load on these things never been loaded in memory before and it can take some time but nothing to worry about just give it a moment to think. I am currently working on an IMAX 27 inch high Mac the most upgraded iMac you can purchase and it's still taking a little bit of time. So just know that you may have to deal with that and you definitely want to work with computers that have some type of graphical chip Besides besides the hardware based ones that come in some laptops. You know you want some type of Intel powered or and powered processor excuse me HD processor and then for that has also graphics cards meant to say like an Nvidia graphics card or radion of some kind. So that's it installed. You're ready to rock and roll.
