    I think I'm going to test out the new shaders, along with that sweet new physics update.

    What are you going to do?

    I haven't broke the news to my boss that upgrades aren't free yet :eek:

    So I'll probably be looking for convincing reasons to justify the upgrade on all the platforms to him...assuming there are justifications beyond the splash screen.... (currently we can't use pro effects on mobiles because of performance)

    Load a decent sized scene and watch it not fall over.

    Hell, I'm worried about what I'm going do with 4.6 and the new gui, and yet you people are already on to 5.

    Nothing until 5.1, where I can only assume it won't be a bug-riddled mess like every other major release version.

    Haha - same. I'll be loading my largest level, shrieking "Yeah!" when it loads without crashing, and then diving into working on it...because I can.

    Fly to the moon, with one unicorn under each foot, naked, holding a single flaming sword.

    Oh come on can't you embrace the roller coaster ride that is developing with Unity. The highs of things that just work and that you can take for granted and the lows when you have to fight with subsystems that work great until you really have to push them. Yes I'm looking at you Unity's Input System and you Mono GC.

    You can and should try to fix all that now (if any yellow warnings in console when you hit save on a script).

    To find them, just reimport any scripts you suspect, they will compile and trigger the warnings.

    I agree. I'm always leery of a dot zero release of anything.

    I'll probably ignore it. Can't afford to upgrade to pro right now and don't want to downgrade to free. :)

    Well I've got to laugh at the amount of people who liked that post.. Sword, flame, naked seems like a recipe for disaster..

    Well at least your delicates will be cauterised when their floating about in space.

    Make backups of my current project on 26 different mediums.

    Then install it.

    Then 3 weeks later after 5.0 actually stops throwing errors, probably try to play with the new Physics :) I hope this new Physics version is much much faster. Crosses fingers.

    Can't wait for Unity 5, but I'm dreading making the transition. It's probably going to be a LOT of work to get my project workable with Unity 5.

    And it's all within a simulation that I'm running in Unity 6. So in case all you AIs are wondering, by the time Unity 6 comes out, they still haven't released the 4.6 GUI.

    Backup my existing project, import it, use the new 2D physics goodies and more, crank, crank, crank, polish, polish polish, publish my project.

    Live happily ever after.

    Oh wait, does that not count as the first thing I'm gonna do....Well, how bout we shorten all that up to 'release a game' :D.

    Find the next big thing to complain about and rally a cause on the forum.

    Duh.

    ... The unicorn naked thing does sound pretty legit, though...

    And the moons champion with his blaze of bareback beauty glowed under the light of his flaming sword. With one swift move shall the deserters fall and the moon be saved as Hippo the saviour approached.

    To the dismay of the moon and the delight of the deserters a unicorn which bore the weight of his fatness was swayed and jostled by a space rock and the saviour of the moon fell ass first on to the horn of said unicorn. Both the deserters and the moon laughed so loudly that their differences were forgotten and 1000 years later the mem............................
