    I was just wondering if your game screen was showing hair, that's all. Still, it looks cool. :)

    With 5.3?! :eek:

    Looks like I'll be trying 5.3 on linux now, that was the last nail in the "choosing whether to upgrade" coffin... :D

    Thanks to your great work on unity3d for linux I'm still able to avoid windows for developing! Here's a timelapse video I made today - a new level that was made in blender, exported to .fbx and now brought to life in unity.



    Thank you all for letting me create my game on an OS that is customized to my needs.

    No coding in this video, but I still am very happy with vim & omnisharp. Never going back to monodevelop on windows again. (even if it's actually not too bad)

    [edit] I want to mention that I had no crashes during this video and the only bug that happened was that the lighting menu could not be opened - I had to restart unity3d to make it work. But I'm still working with an older build.

    Guys, guys, guys! :D Some of these are awesome to see on Linux!

    And speaking of which, I tried 5.3.1 on Linux... it's actually quite stable, I recommend it for those who aren't affected by the platform-wide 5.3 bugs. (A note too that some of those were apparently fixed in 5.3.1 anyway. :))

    Besides the jumping game testing window, 5.3.1 is a great deal more stable. :p

    Jumping window? I didn't get that last time I used it.

    Being that I'm almost finished a project, once that's done, I'll be looking at building a game in Linux to give the editor a REAL test. ;) (Thing is, I could have done my current project in Unity for Linux, only I'm targeting Windows 10 for that one... :D)

    Yeah I have another thread here. The game renderer jumps down when you click "play" unless it's "maximize on play". It's only the renderer though far as I can tell, because the buttons and interaction are all still in the same place. I have another thread on this.

    That issue, I actually saw that; strangely doesn't happen to me, and I'm using XFCE too. maybe something in Linux Mint stuffs around with it?

    Well, I use Linux Mint 17 with Gnome as environment and in my case the latest version to date (5.3.2) works pretty well out of the box.

    I'm remaking my old 2D game in Unity on Debian.
    This is the terrain for level one so far :D
    Just a quick setup



    And this is the main camera. Enemies would try to reach the top and the player has to defend it.

    New to BOTH Unity AND the Linux editor? That's a double accomplishment right there. :)

    I may as well give this a try sometime. (Probably when I get home though, my tab's probably dead right now... XD)

    May as well show off what I've been working on. It's only a university test level however, so don't expect anything too flashy. Funny part is, this game doesn't quite work right on windows DX11... :D

    Also, game lacks a title atm, I haven't finalized my concept yet. Also, my Google drive hosts it, so this short clip will probably show a "processing video" message to begin with
    Video converted now.

    Vast majority of development taking place on Unity for Linux.

    Unity Linux Team: Any UI crash fixes are much appreciated. This is a huge pain point for us currently.

    noice. ;) And what kind of UI crashes? I don't get any atm. (Unless it's related to the SIGABRT problem caused by not including default UI shaders... :D I ran into that one again a while ago)

    A beta really stable? That sounds promising! :)
    I'll be staying off betas in general though, since I prefer to keep my Windows and Linux versions the same. (Both my OS partitions are on 5.3.4, so that's what I'm staying with until 5.4's full version comes out)

    Either way though, good to hear it's fixed for you. :) As a side-note, my UI experience has been good so far! (Well, except for the AddComponent crash, but that hardly rears it's head now, I only got it once or twice)

    EDIT: Quick question; does 5.4 finally allow users to select OpenGL Core? or is that still not fixed?

    There's also a 5.3.4f1 build with #2016050301 containing the same fix. (Should also apply to AddComponent)

    Both editions are still locked to legacy opengl for now.

    @letonai: I'm not a fan of flappy bird, but I actually like the idea of a parody with a farting pig. I would recommend reworking the graphic assets, though. It could look fresher and more solid.

    @gnat: Your game looks great! I wish I could start making VR stuff too. Looks so exciting!

    @Kaleval: I really love the low-resolution 3D style. It reminds me of the old isometric games, where everything was made of pre-rendered 3D-Graphics.

    Thanks to the lovely linux Editor, I'm now almost finished with chapter 2 of Fumiko! The Game. This means that a complete chapter of my game will have been made possible with this version of the editor.



    This trailer contains several levels that are done completely on linux. Thanks again. Fyi, I use SimpleScreenRecorder with JACK to record video and audio while playing on openbox, to combine everything in Openshot 1.x.

    Thank you! It's a combination of the level mesh itself, proper lighting (ambient light + a sun + a second, weaker sun that is an inverted version of the main sun), coloring with materials, some Post Processing (Bloom, Color Correction Curves and Anti Aliasing - All from the standard Post Processing Effect Scripts) and, one of the most important aspects - Big particle effects that aren't meant to be placed as small objects, but are part of the environment or background.

    Some aspects of the creation process can be seen here:


    @eztebangearvr: Do you have any recorded video or some screenshots? Cool to see more VR stuff happening in the linux editor.

    The above picture is a screenshot i took from the Editor. And here is a video from an early version without hair physics that i captured from the editor without camera movement.



    In the app you can move the camera freely around the dancers and watch them from any angle.

    Hey all!

    So this is a bit different than the usual type of stuff that gets posted, but I just finished up a music video made solely in Ubuntu.



    I also wrote up a blog post about the making of it on madewith.unity.com, and it became a staff pick!

    Super excited to have the Linux editor. It's been really amazing so far - I haven't had a single crash or major bug. Unity had been my only reason to keep Windows around, and it's been really amazing to finally get to move away from a dual boot. Really grateful to @Tak and the rest of the team involved in making it.

    Hi everyone! Posting to inform that our newest game, Super Button Soccer, has just been released on Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/425300 !



    The game was developed by a 3 person team, where 2 of them used the Windows and Mac editors, and one (myself) used only the Linux editor in the past 4 months. The latest Linux versions of the editor were very stable, and although we didn't use it for the production builds ( we always build final binaries on Mac here in the studio ), I must say that I didn't have any major problems by using the Linux editor in our pipeline!!!

    Well, I also appreciate all the support and feedback we can get, and of course double hurrahs for everyone who buys the game... ;)

    Cheers!

    Hello,

    I made a simple catch game with a narrative at. I used version 5.35 but will upgrade it to 5.4(I am having trouble adding 5.4.0p1) on the next update. It's still Alpha because I am trying to figure what bugs there are and what platforms. Additionally, I would love to add better visuals. While I get feedback.

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.protocolsevenproductions.purelandad

    Made in Linux(Unity 5.35) and Ubuntu 14.04, using Facebook and Gamespark SDK packages.

    I released a second demo for Fumiko! The Game that has been made with the Linux Editor. I haven't used the windows Editor for this game since you released the first Linux Editor Alpha. I can't say thank you enough every day.

    If you want to download the demo, go directly to IndieDB:
    http://www.indiedb.com/games/fumiko-the-game/downloads

    Or download on the game's main website:
    https://www.fumiko-game.com
    (There's a shared Dropbox folder for people who can't download on IndieDB)

    Teaser for the Demo (warning, sound)


    Also check out these videos:

    Particle System with Collision


    Sorry for the long post, the forums don't let me post youtube links without embedding them automatically. Hope you enjoy!

    Hi guys !

    I installed Linux 6 months ago. And I'm actually working on an unfinished project that we made with my team 4 years ago (Unity 3.5 ?). So i decided to port it to Linux. As our first project on Unity, the code is kind of a mess right now.

    Screenshot from 2016-09-14 22-43-41.png Screenshot from 2016-09-14 22-45-51.png Screenshot from 2016-09-14 22-44-25.png

    But it looks incredible! Very fresh low-poly assets you and your team have created there. Looks very interesting.
