  1. We are migrating the Unity Forums to Unity Discussions. On July 12, the Unity Forums will become read-only.

    Please, do not make any changes to your username or email addresses at id.unity.com during this transition time.

    It's still possible to reply to existing private message conversations during the migration, but any new replies you post will be missing after the main migration is complete. We'll do our best to migrate these messages in a follow-up step.

    On July 15, Unity Discussions will become read-only until July 18, when the new design and the migrated forum contents will go live.


    Read our full announcement for more information and let us know if you have any questions.

Feedback The startup screen is pretty much useless

    What you (hardly) see as grey text on black background is a waste of everyone's vision. It passes by quickly and isn't readable at all. This should be improved and become a textarea, not a textfield. So that you can at least somehow trace it.

    The same goes for those "Hold on ..." dialogs.

    Pretty sure the point of the tiny loading stage isn't to draw your attention when things work like they should but that it could be helpful if things stall for some reason and you can then see where it happens.

    Also while I think the hold dialogs wouldn't need to be separate dialogs (but rather some progress indicator on the editors bottom bar etc), it does help in communicating that Unity is doing something now vs in past where the editor just froze for the same thing and some users could have assumed it was just broken and stuck. Showing the progress clearly is a good thing IMHO.

    That it is, but I'd show it in a textarea, not a single textfield. Sometimes I think a process is stuck in a loop and there's no way to verify this let a alone an indicator for filing a bug report.
