English [Auto] Hey What's up everybody. Mark Price here with slopes dot com. And in this exciting video we are going to learn how to download and install unity 3D on Windows 10. I'm going to go ahead and clip this Internet Exploder icon over here. We're going to go to Unity 3D dotcom if it will let us go. Oh it's Microsoft edge not Internet Exploder. Sorry. This isn't running all that great. And the Microsoft edge but I am running Parallels on my Mac and I haven't downloaded Google Chrome yet so I recommend that you do use Google Chrome to do anything that you're going to do on Windows. If you don't already and we're going to click get unity on the web page and we're going to scroll down here to the free one we're going to click Download Now. Click the download installer save you downloads should just click run. Yes I would like to run it. Click next where this is currently version five point for point to any version of 5 x will work just fine. And I want the visual studio community yes standard assets documentation Yes. Yes. This all looks good. You can of course add other platforms for you if you want to just take longer to download such as Linux build support Windows store etc.. If you do choose Iowas TV OS or Mac builds support you can of course develop in unity but you won't be able to export the projects until you have a max what some companies do if they don't want to choose Mac as their development platform they will build their entire game on their PC with unity and then they'll get something like a Mac Mini and they'll send the code over to it and then they'll build it from there. We're going to go ahead and just install it. This is looking great and wants 9.7 gigabytes get rid of the standard assets we don't need that. OK. Program Files is just fine. I except I've read all of these of course then it's gone to download unity and then it's going to we're going to install it from there. You'll notice that it is installing Visual Studio that will take some time as well to this whole process will take a while. So don't worry just let it do its thing until it's all done. All right ladies and gentlemen unity has finished installing as you can tell here it says launch unit. When I click Finish I'm going to say OK OK. So you can sign into your account if you have an account. It's FREE. If you don't have one you should create one. OK. Basically the reason why you want to sign into an account is so you can store your or some of your resources and things in the back and you can download assets from the asset store and manages all that for you. Super important. So go ahead create an account if you don't have one. I'm going to go ahead and sign in. I clicked sign in use unity personal which the free version with unity of course there are different pricing plans. And we talk about that and one of our videos. So I'm just going to say the middle one right here earn less than $100000 activating start using unity we're going to create a new project just to make sure everything's working. I'm going to call this delete me because I want to get rid of it after you can have spaces and then that's fine a 2D or 3D project will say 3D and I'm going to get great project path is invalid. Let's go select a new path here. I'm going to put it here in the documents does not like that let's just put it on the desktop. It isn't like a path because I'm using Windows parallels here so what I am going to do is I'm just going to go into the C-Drive take this path here now come and see Dr. copy that paste it there fantastic is definitely working may take a few minutes to load especially for the first time what I want to do to make sure it's absolutely work is I'm right click over here where assets I'm going to go to create C-Sharp script and let's call this test. And what I just want to do is make sure visual studio is working properly. So let's DoubleClick. This should open up Visual Studio community 20 15 not now maybe later I'll sign up later. I do want the dark theme art visual studio may take a few minutes. Nothing to worry about. OK Visual Studio community has now opened and as you can see here I'm using command scroll or control scroll to zoom in here. But as you can see we've got our code right here. And it's looking good now. You don't have to use Visual Studio community if you don't want to. You can also use Visual Studio code which is really awesome in fact it's a lot more lightweight than this. This thing's a beast. OK. And so you might want to install Visual Studio community excuse excuse me Visual Studio code in that community. This is community Visual Studio code. Go get it they actually have unity plugins right into it. And it's much faster. Really cool the Lissa's have some features like with integration directly into unity and stuff with the debugging. So up to you but Visual Studio code is pretty dang amazing. But that's it. We have successfully installed 3D cool. So here it's really great stuff. And if you want the dark great theme courtship to get the paid version of unity which we'll talk about later as well too. So congratulations. Unity is now installed on your computer ready to be used with Visual Studio community again. You can also use Visual Studio code which is what we actually use on the Mac version of well too because the model doesn't work great and this is a really heavy way to so up to you. That's it for now. Marc price at Dove slopes. Let's make some games.
