Anyone know of a Unity book?
I am sooo glad he Will Goldstone is doing a book.
He is the man! Best tutorials i have seen.
This would be very welcome
Would this be a physical published book or an e-book ?
Also, is there an indication of release date ( days, months, years ?)
@shader: ask Will, he's here on the forums (I think months and yes a physical book, but he'll have to confirm details).
Yeah he mentioned he was writing a book in reply to my email to him about his log in sytem being a bit borked; I hope it will be in e-book form as i recall a number of promised titles on the Source engine some years back never making it through the publishing deals etc,even though you could pre-order them at Amazon and others :roll: Would be a shame for a Unity book to become subject to similar business wranglings...
I'd buy it, I'm sure many others would too in electronic document form, so I suppose if one is dilligent about copywriting etc one could cut out alot of middlemen these days?
Publication date is August/September 2009.
Looks like we can get a sneak peek at Wills new book Link
Very cool... Really looking forward to this. Tempted to scoop up the the 'RAW' version.
Wonder if any of the applicable source is available yet. Will? :wink:
Have a happy 4th,
I just got the RAW version and the parts of the book finished so far (4 of the 11 chapters) amount to 113 pages. I've only skimmed the pdf briefly in Preview but it looks rather good for the money - especially the 40% off pre-order offer
This Unity tutorial space is kinda hotting up...
This is really cool, thanks for posting the link to the RAW version.
Hi all, just checking book related threads to bring you news that my book on Unity is finally finished, and is heading to the printers this week, designed for beginners to get them kickstarted you can find out about it here..
hope it helps some of you out!
all the best
i got it today in my mailbox!
Although i purchased the ebook before and i know the content, it is great to have it in a real soft cover edition.
Exactly what i need !
thank you so much, Will !!!
Is the book updated to 2.6 version ?
Its fine with 2.6 - no update needed.
Packt Publishing is offering a big 60% discount this weekend to commemorate the free release of Unity 2.6: http://www.packtpub.com/article/a-game-developers-weekend-unity-2-6-is-now-free
thanks for that information!
I purchased the book a week ago
If I try to place the trees , my portable PC with 2.6 free version, immediately crashes ( just 1 click )
No problem with 2.5 commercial version on the desk top
Is it a 2.6 bug ?
Yes and one that will be fixed soon...
