    Can't remember the link now, but basically you won't be able to do stuff like gameObject.transform nor gameObject.rigidbody, you have to cache it as a variable, I think unity will convert it to a GetComponent every frame though >.>. A lot to change in the code.

    Edit: found it! http://darkgenesis.zenithmoon.com/get-prepared-for-unity-5-the-dreaded/

    Hahaha, love the meme in that link for using .transform, .rigidbody, etc...



    OT/ I've never liked Unity's component accessors. It's too easy to write inefficient code if you're not aware of the inner workings. @MadJohnny, you dont have to cache the result, it's exactly the same as if you were using the component accessor, but what's actually happening is a lot clearer. Removing them is a change for the better in my opinion. /OT

    Unity 5 will come with a script-updater that will update all of the .component references for you. Only work you have to do is double-click the Console message prompt. :)

    Not quite...

    1. As it currently is, using .rigidbody (or whatever) is effectively equivalent of using GetComponent<Rigidbody>().
    2. Transforms are a bit of a special case due to their relationship with GameObjects, so my understanding is that .transform in particular will still be there.
    3. Once you've got the reference to the component then using it is just like using any other reference whether it's in the current or upcoming system. It's just that the current system gives us a bunch of things that look like references, but are in fact not actually references.

    This town guard is lucky, It's less painful to take an arrow to the knee and give up this idea soon than to face people's replies. haha

    This meme reference is Saw film. Check it on Google. Many of these people asking for MMOs, they are amateurs who have no project management skills. Doing a collaboration MMO project goes something like this. It's a trap in other words.

    The only outcome you get from doing a collaboration MMO, is: Pain will be incurred, but you have a chance...

    The logical question is, if it's better than Steam, how come no one's heard of it?

    Every time you create a warning and don't rectify it, you make a puppy cry. You awful evil person. :D

    Seriously though, it's not worth the risk. Ask my human. He has no qualms about reworking any developers' code.

    If you're an asset store provider, my human will get into your thread and mention that he's converted your file from javascript to C# and fixed the issue. Meanwhile you're not issuing any fixes, not offering a fix for current customers, and are rewriting the entire project for "version 2" when it doesn't need a rewrite at all and is so different that it is useless to buy the asset in the first place.

    My human and I weren't impressed. I'm pouring my anger into the buffalo knuckle I'm chewing right now.
