    Hello,

    A feature i like to see in Unity Hub.

    when i open a project through unity hub, the possibility to select the build target for project launch like if i launch unity with:
    unity.exe -buildtarget Android
    (Android as example, but not limited to)

    or, to extend request to something more generic, permit to launch a project with additionnals custom parameters.


    Thanks.

    Hi there,

    Thank you for your feedback.
    The build target is something that we have in our plan and will be added to the hub.
    However, adding the custom parameters is something that we are discussing to add or not. Our main concern is to design a user experience that does not confuse users who are not advanced.

    You could do that in the way Steam does it. Right click project, Properties, Set Launch Options. It's burried so deep that you'll probably only find it if you're googling for it, so it's not in danger of confusing non-advanced users.

    That's a good idea. I am going to discuss it with our product team.
