    Hi
    I have a question
    So if I start making a game (game A) whit unity personal and another game of my gets 100.000$ a year (game B) ... I need to start useing unity pro... But can I than finish game A (which I started whit unity personal) whit unity pro?

    Nothing of that is real but I'm asking if something like that would happen...
    Better to check before I start
    It's better to be safe than sorry :)

    Of course. Now even more than ever. The difference between Pro and Personal is "merely" in extra services and the restriction of 100.000$ per year. The amount of money you or your company makes - no matter the project - is important. So even if you don't make games at all - if you make over 100.000$/year and want to release anything with Unity you need to buy a license for everyone in your team working with Unity and every plattform.

    Though I imagine that this is a rather minor problem with an income above 100.000$. :)

    Are you sure about that? From Unity's EULA:

    Yes, it's totally fine to move up from using Personal to using Professional - that's what we want to happen when your game becomes a smash hit :)

    That stuff about day jobs not counting is new in 5.0. It was always this weird grey area previously.

    Glad to see it cleared up.
