    i have a doubt, can i use for commercial purposes? if i make a multiplayer game, not a fps, unity would have the intellectual property of my project?

    Yes, you can use it commercially

    Yes, you can use it. No, Unity wouldn't own your IP, although you wouldn't own these assets as well. So anyone can use them and you can't sue them (well, you can, but you probably lose). But your work is yours.

    Be sure you read the legal stuff, or your 'team does' so you know it first hand. Here are some snip-its from those files, but you will need to read:

    FPS Sample 2.0 Readme.MD <Bottom>
    ## License

    Our intention is that you can use everything in this project as a starting
    point or as bits and pieces in your own Unity games. For the legal words, see

    Summary I believe, is that you can use the FPS Project as a base and anything in it, to release a Unity based game for personal/commercial profit. So you can take the game as is, and see what you can get on STEAM Marketplace, but so can I. We both can pitch the same game, but we will do better, if we change the characters, sounds, levels, to add some of our own custom content to the game.

    That added custom content, is your IP/Intellectual Property (if your created it, like building a new model in blender or probuilder yourself, if you buy assets on the asset store, you are paying for that IP that you can then add to the project.)

    The rest of the game, is Unity's property, and they are allowing you to use it for 'free' with your owned/created IP to construct a finished game you can sell.

    Unity gets paid, when you make over ~$100k, and are then required to sign up all of your companies developers for monthly unity subscriptions for continued development of your game(s!). If you did not continue to develop games, post making 250k, I believe you could ignore the need for a Unity Subscription. But you couldn't make any more unity games or update your existing game without The subscription. It is something like $125 a month per person.

    Sweet gig/Setup. Thank you Unity!

    $100k, because there is a Plus subscription and it is mandatory if you're using Unity and you're above $100k.
