  1. We are migrating the Unity Forums to Unity Discussions. On July 12, the Unity Forums will become read-only.

    Please, do not make any changes to your username or email addresses at id.unity.com during this transition time.

    It's still possible to reply to existing private message conversations during the migration, but any new replies you post will be missing after the main migration is complete. We'll do our best to migrate these messages in a follow-up step.

    On July 15, Unity Discussions will become read-only until July 18, when the new design and the migrated forum contents will go live.


    Read our full announcement for more information and let us know if you have any questions.

    I know a lot of Unity projects have public roadmaps, is there one available for UGC? And is there a place for feature requests? Upon testing out Unity UGC and having worked with competing platforms our missing requirements are:
    • Categories - I know these are already planned but a request for multi-hierarchy categories and importantly allowing UGC to belong to multiple categories. We would use this over tags as it allows users to drill down to exactly what they want while keeping things organized.
    • Dependencies - So UGC can specify other UGC they depend on.
    • Monetization - So UGC creators can sell their content.
    • Streaming - I understand this might be to specific but our users share audio content and it would be ideal if that content could be streamed in real time rather than downloaded. Maybe this would be possible by using our own CDN, on the UGC dashboard it states "to use your own CDN refer to the documentation" however the documentation doesn't appear to make any reference to CDN usage.

    Hey Sean,

    Our public road map will published to the respective unity.com page soon.

    You're absolutely right, we are working hard to get this functionality out especially categories in the near future.

    We're working on a comprehensive creator economy which includes monetization which we expect to have in the later half of this year.

    With regards to using your own CDN for streaming, please send me message on here with your e-mail and I'll get in touch about next steps there.

    Really appreciate that feedback
