...will be the new question. No longer do people want to remove the Unity logo
What did I miss?
I'd sooner eat my own feet than sully my creative output with somebody else's branding.
Same here. It sounds like a response to something I missed. (Or hippo’s account got hacked again).
Is there something you want to tell us but can't due to an NDA? Because I distinctly remember you knew ahead of time that Unity 5 Personal would include every engine feature and you kept hinting that you knew something without directly saying.
Probably Unite blowing everyone's mind with their showcases and ECS talks. Apparently, if you put talented people to work on a Unity project you can actually make a good game that looks completely modern! Who knew?
That was just tension and intrigue for the sheer joy of it.
But no, I'm saying it this time due to the whole ECS + Jobs + Burst + HDRP + Streaming wazoo + Everything stuff support. I mean, it's pretty much an engine where even the cool kids in grubby internet places are making appreciative noises for once instead of "ew unity".
So those that care (I never did) will probably about face and enjoy personal more. this could be lower revenue in some strange twist of fate...
For real though, how sick is that mega city demo?
In recent months I have already seen unironic forum posts on steam along the lines of "Why did they have to pick a S*** engine like UE4 for this game, and not one of the good engines like Unity?". It was a modern military shooter.
I'll not really bother trying to work out what people think. That's a mystery for marketing departments.
i just subscribed a plus plan to get rid of the logo. don't tell me you are going to make it free. (damn i got the problem before, when paying for the android platform)
If the people that want to add the logo to their game, are the people that have to ask how to do it, it probably means that seeing the Unity logo will mean bad things once again
I don't expect Unity to make it free at all, I'm just goofing around (I am also not Unity staff if anyone is confused).
People used to not like Unity logo in order to resemble AAA with in-house engine....’what did they use to make the game? It’s a mystery, but prolly some badass proprietary stuff’
But now even AAA are slowly starting to use Unity, and with new improvements we’ll see a lot more of that.
They are tackling the best cutting edge graphics, best performance to go along with versatility it always had.
Conclusion: very soon you’ll have to pay to be allowed to use Unity logo in your game!
Not 'cool' enough. Needs to be like the old Nvidia, like the whispering 'Nvidiaaa,, it's in the game'
Which may be too much to follow..
Imagine a Paramounts Pictures sort of fantastic presentation with a shiny golden Unity logo in the end... and it's a flappy birds clone
That was EA Sports.
Is cutting up the logo with a chainsaw cool enough?
I think this OP is a troll and should be banned
EA? really? those coat tail hangers... I do like the Chainsaw thing though lol, would give a good smile on a players face right from the start. Don't know how Unity would feel about that thou
In the end I don't think the Unity Logo/splash screen adds anything to an Intro.
It's not that I mind it but it always looks like 2 or 3 wasted seconds.
Best logo animation ever:
Also, to answer the thread's title, I guess the answer is : You don't.
Also how hypocritique
So technically and legally, I am not downloading Unity Software, but just Unity as company.
Does it means, these links are actually illegal? Or I would say softly; breaking trademarks guide lines.
They are the owners of the IP, they do whatever they want with it.
Technically speaking they're obligated to sue themselves ... the law's the law! :B
Let's face it, it would be incredibly boring here on the forums if they always were consistent.
Partially serious - partially satirical
Now imagine you got your cool popular game with a your logo
Then in some obscure place like licence, you write, you can only present it with red background and one "p".
Easy to guess, which logo will be copied all over the place.
Red one will be almost belonging to somewhere deep forgotten underworld.
Is saying, "you are perceived, as you perceiving yourself".
Does anyone actually here actually make games?
Game development? What's that? I thought it's all about enterprise C# tutorials with some proprietary 3D software...
Isn't reading and adhering to legal crap part of developing and publishing games?
We had the Unity logo in our game's credits. Since I was making some changes to the credits today, I thought I'd read up on the guidelines again, which roughly a month ago ( https://web.archive.org/web/20180903032508/http://unity3d.com/public-relations/brand ) were saying that we can freely use the logo as long we adhere to some guidelines.
Now they changed it without notifying anyone, and say we shouldn't use the logo at all, so I'm removing it.
Well the thread was just meant to be a light hearted joke in light of how impressive Unity has become. Previously people would make a lot of posts about how to remove the logo, and how the logo sucks and "unity image problem" and my thread here was just a joke about that, and hinted that people could just go and turn it on in the menu...
Didn't expect such srs
This is kind of community paradox.
When some thread is suppose to be serious, some people turn it into a joke.
And vice versa, when thread is meant to be joke, like yours ( I read your initial intentions ), then people find serious matter to talk about
You know, just like many great ideas comes by accidents, or by simply playing silly.
What for, while we can spent all our time on forum, taking silly
On semi-serious matter
Btw, I don't know if this is forum option, default, or people optional choice to select avatar like this
Surely no reason for any legal cases, but out of interest, how that classifies in terms of Unity trademark misuse?
Havent worked on mine in months.
I have been thinking about doing something on it.
Then I went to play more Witcher 3.
The name of the company is Unity Technologies. The engine is Unity. Which part is the problem?
Yeah, which is why I post a lot less unless something gets up my butt.
Usually build times, since my personal project is just... all sorts of nonsense that wreaks havoc with Unity's build process.
Is not really an issue.
Is me being picky and pedantic in this case.
Technically should be
Contact Unity Technologies.
Just pointing out, how things are worded.
Yeah, gotcha. I don't think we're offtopic though.
I saw the thread and went "Logo, hmm, we have the logo in the credits -> Oh I need to change something in the credits -> oh, yeah, the logo, let's re-read the guidelines -> Oh, I can't use it any more".
Personally I think it's funny that Unity doesn't want us to use their logo any more.
So in the context of this thread: People will start asking how to add the logo to their games and Unity (edit: Technologies, not the "software" itself. gotta make sure I'm compliant with the branding guidelines) will say "NOPE, DON'T, JUST DON'T"
Actually it's not true. First: you can use the logo when your game starts up. Second: in the credits you can mention Unity (both Technologies and/or the Software) by word. And if they give you permission you can use their logo.
It's not that complicated.
Another tornado in the chamber pot.
You're quoting me, but somehow I feel like you replied to someone else.
I never said it was complicated.
Assuming the built in splash screen is an exception to the branding rules (I don't see it mentioned anywhere), I can, but the built in splash screen is really slow, so I would never use it. I could potentially make a custom one to combine it with our logo, but I probably can't do that without written permission.
Not sure how this is relevant when I am talking exclusively about the logo.
In the end, the only thing I wanted to point out is : A month ago, the branding page was encouraging everyone to use the logo (with some pretty reasonable guidelines), now it's discouraging everyone from using their logos.
I find that interesting.
I also find it funny in the context of this thread.
Also, I removed all mentions of Unity Software/Technologies from my game's credits, since for all I know, they might ask for written permission for the "wordmark" too at some point.
It's not complicated, it's not outrageous or anything, I am not trying to have anything changed, I just found out about it earlier today, thought it was interesting/funny and I'm pointing it out.
Well, you're half right, I quoted you, because you told on an open forum, that Unity discourages people to add their logo, which is factually not true. They're asking that people should seek permission to use the logo itself. On the other hand they're encouraging people to use wording.
I expanded my answer in case anyone who comes here and actually try to take advice from the forums. So they can see, that this is not true, and there is a way to use both give Unity credit and use their logo.
Nothing else. I agree that the splash screen is not ideal. I wouldn't use either, but if you want Unity logo without explicit permission, there you have it.
We're splitting hairs at this point, but I find this:
At the very very least it's discouraging compared to what is used to be which was:
But that could be my personal interpretation.
Agreed on everything else.
No. This is a forum for "Discuss Unity & game development". If you want to actually make games, you are in the wrong place.
Only discussers allowed, follow the rules people!
In General Discussion, some foolishness is allowed
And then some random guy like for example @hippocoder comes and slams a lock on a thread
Well I've said before, I don't moderate hard on General, only the parts of the forum which require good signal to noise ratio to function...
