    Thanks for the advance notice. Nothing like missing a one time sale for something you wanted simply because you did not know on time.

    This was a brutal yet satisfying experience. Had to cherry pick what I needed/wanted, in order to avoid annihilating my budget.

    Out of curiosity, what did you end up getting?

    I was surprised on how many assets there were in the sale, that I already knew about. Out of my list there are only 3 that I have little knowledge of.

    Some assets needed soon (top three), while other assets purchased due to a combination of reviews (I try to ignore "gifted" reviews), active support (forum, discord, etc), updates, documentation (especially videos), and existing experiences with publishers. I have been looking at a few of these assets for a while, I just haven't had a need for them, and would only have purchased them when needed. Odin was the only asset I bought purely on reputation as I think I can do without it, time will tell.

    So 11 assets.

    Vegetation Studio Pro
    A* Pathfinding Project Pro
    EasyRoads3D Pro v3
    TENKOKU Dynamic Sky
    Amplify Shader Editor
    Mtree - Tree Creation
    UMotion Pro - Animation Editor
    Behavior Designer - Behavior Trees for Everyone
    Gaia Pro - Terrain & Scene Generator
    Beautify 2
    Odin - Inspector and Serializer

    Would it kill you folks to put the sale ending date/time on the asset store website?

    Great sale, except that nearly everything that's on sale and of use to me, I already have (often from earlier sales). It's a good problem to have, I suppose. Happy to recommend a few really solid, underappreciated ones that I'm using:

    Adventure Creator - Sold as an adventure game template, but it's grown into a comprehensive framework for any sort of RPG-ish game, with drop-in replacement hooks for many major, popular assets. Arguably the best-documented, best-written/architected script asset in the store, speaking as a career software dev.

    Malbers' Animal Controller & Horse Animset Pro - The former is a full-featured character controller & behavior model for any animals that walk, climb, swim, or fly, refactored to make it easier to use non-Malbers animals (although his are very good for their style). The latter is basically a "make anything rideable" mount/riding controller, from horses to ostriches to dragons :)

    Terrain Grid System - I'm using it for rect-grid unit-selection and a hex-grid overworld map in my Tactical RPG, but under the hood it has a robust, performant feature-set for anything that involves either displaying or calculating grid-related solutions. I haven't had need to try out its Voronoi cell features, but would definitely recommend it over a DIY solution (unless you're good at multivariate calculus ;).

    Toon People series - I'm reluctant to mention this one, since I'd rather it stay a little-used secret gem! But these are really fun human character models, with highly expressive blendshape-enabled faces, and a full range of modern clothes/looks. I particularly love the diverse ethnicities & ages in the series, since there are so few assets for non-Euro, non-adult characters.

    No prob, but these are in the current sale already, that's why I gave them a special shout-out. The full list of "Useful assets I recommend" would be way, way longer LOL

    Woops! Too many assets! But thanks anyways for giving that thorough list to help out others.

    If you ever decide to make a tiny part of that "nice-to-have" list, I'm all ears :D

    Happy to. Trouble is though, I usually tailor the suggestions/descriptions to the audience/asker. That's why I usually don't write "universal" Store Reviews, because what a pro coder is looking for is different from an artist, or a new-to-games beginner, even from the same asset.

    Rattling off a couple sentences of "assets that are broadly useful across genres/projects, and hey, they're on sale, too", that's a cakewalk :cool:

    Will there be an end of sale finale like previous sales?
    Also, will the May sale still happen?

    Thanks!

    This Spring Sale is awesome. Right now I have 7 items in my cart, wating for checkout. I would like to have a look (detailed look) to all assets, so maybe I select a few more.
    Thanks for this Sale, it helps little developers to get amazing assets.

    Hey guys! In the asset store i can't find the info where it says when does this sale ends. I've found it here, ok. But maybe it would be convenient for other people if you add this info somewhere in the asset store.:eek:

    The post you replied to was written before the sale began. You seem to have read it as being sarcastic and complaining. I think it was genuinely grateful.

    I just noticed there are more than double the assets on sale today than yesterday.
    I don't complain about it, more sales = more better :p
    But maaaaybe you should announce it somewhere, so people who have already looked through all the sales can do it again?

    I became poor by 5k this month thanks to the asset store sale.
    10 purchases of 460+820+366+732+262+392+400+602+808+282 = 5124 :(
    hope now Unity makes it's 2019.4 LTS version release soon with stable URP and HDRP, else no point in getting all the new URP and HDRP assets :cool:
    need to go back to unreal for HD then

    thanks not going anywhere can be taken in two ways either - not progressing in unity with all these assets too :D or Unity becomes too good that I'm not moving back to Unreal :cool: which I hope will become true

    I mean you're not switching to any other engine after spending 5k on unity assets no matter what.

    So ... they added assets to the sale but didn't tell anyone?

    I'm good store customer. You'd think they'd want me to know there were more items I might be interested in.

    Sometimes I get the feeling the UAS is playing a game where the goal is to turn away their customers.

    It's something Unity use to do with their sales: they put more items on sale at random intervals and tell no one about it.
    They do it so much that now I wait until the very end of a sale to purchase, so I can review ALL the assets they have on sale.

    Yeah ... I might have checked for an expansion of the list like the day before they expanded it or something, and concluded they weren't going to expand it.

    Unity's behavior is just ... weird.

    Hello @atomicjoe @hopeful ! It sounds like you were having technical issues - and I'm sorry I couldn't answer you more quickly if that was the case.

    All of the assets on sale were publicly announced on the first day. To the exception of 3-5 assets that we decided to add after the first day, you should have had access to all of our Spring Sale selection as to ensure the most informed purchasing decision.

    Oh? Okay, then I must have seen it all. If it was all present from the start, essentially, and we didn't have hundreds of items added at the end, then I did catch it all. :)
