    Unity 2022.2.0b16 URP
    Entities 1.0.0-exp.12
    Entities Graphics 1.0.0-exp.14

    Starting out with DOTS, I tried the spawn implementation from the Unity documentation example
    https://docs.unity3d.com/Packages/com.unity.entities@1.0/manual/ecs-workflow-example.html

    also I tried a similar one from Turbo Makes Games on YT


    In the video, the spawned entities are visible in Scene View.

    Even though I closely paid attention to the same steps using a fresh Unity Beta (no preferences changed) the entities are only visible in Game View.

    Someone had this before maybe?
    Thanks for any ideas!

    Same. I've upgraded a project and no Entities are visible anymore.

    I was just tooling around getting used to the fact that they're only showing in game view and..... suddenly they're working in scene again. I didn't change anything or do anything, it just started working. Your guess is as good as mine o_O

    SOLVED

    If you aren't seeing entities in the Scene View but you can still see them in the Game View - open the Preferences window (Edit > Preferences...) then on the Entities section, make sure "Scene View Mode" is set to "Runtime Data" not "Authoring Data"

    Great!

    Nevertheless, I don't think this thread is useless for new users in the future.

    Thanks tjumma!
