    I am a beginner. I want to use Python in Unity. But I can not find the tutorials. Are there any tutorials I can follow?

    You can't use python in Unity properly. Main language is C#

    Unity doesn't support Python. There might be some plugins but I doubt they will allow you to make anything more complex than printing "Hello Unity" to the console.

    Use C#, the language of the gods.

    i dont get how u heard unity allows python barely any games exist in that language. nor should you use python to make games. its slow and quite outdated.

    Unity uses C# as its main language and Java can still be used but i am pretty sure unity is going to be a C# explicite engine.

    If you really want python - use Godot instead.

    Godot barely supports it.

    Java was never part of any Unity solutions. UnityScript was which was a Javascript derivative.

    BTW

    Oh and just for fun: Civilization IV was built in C++ and Python and it could be modded in Python AFAIK.

    One of the benefits of Unity3D is the massive developer base. If you have a problem or a question, it is almost 100% certain that someone else has already fixed it, or at least identified a workaround.

    You can run Python in Unity in a bunch of different ways, but understand that if you do that, you will:

    a) cut yourself off from easy access to example C# scripts and constructs that do useful things that save you massive amounts of fiddle-around time

    b) be using something that virtually nobody else has used in the Unity context, leaving you to solve most of your problems yourself.

    c) be exposing yourself to a brand-new class of problems related to which platform supports whatever Python implementation you suggest.

    If you're just starting out, keep it simple. Code in C#. It's not hard to learn, there's PLENTY of help out there, and right here for specific Unity context questions.

    Anything all the users above said. Anyway, check out Iron Python.
