    How do I get the standard assets like the First Person Controller for Unity 2018.2? I use to be able to select Asset > Import Package but it doesn't seem to come with it anymore. I also can't find it in the Package Manager either. Do I need to download the Standard Assets from the store?

    Thanks.

    Yes. You're supposed to be able to download the files via links on the archive page but they appear to be broken.

    What's wrong isn't the link (in fact if you check the other downloads they're all coming from the same place meaning the link is just fine) but the fact that the file simply isn't there. Your choices are to either use the Asset Store or wait for Unity to fix the problem we've told them about repeatedly (hint: it's a fix that won't happen).

    Hi, I tried downloading them from the asset store too, to no avail. Can anyone upload their installer if they still have it or post a good link? BTW, Ryiah, you said Unity has been notified about this problem before; did they ever respond? Do you have the links to those posts?

    Latest one is July 31st, 2018. It's not the greatest example but they have posted in the threads where people have said it.

    https://forum.unity.com/threads/not-able-to-download-standard-assets-from-unity-archive.542744/

    There are others but the remainder of my post makes them rather moot at this point.

    While searching for example posts I came across someone mentioning the presence of a valid link to the assets in the beta release notes for Unity 2018.1. Checking the release notes for the stable release of Unity 2018.1 resulted in the link below which is working on my end.

    How is this download link still broken a month later?

    I can download the 2017 standard assets from the store, but they the scripts all sorts of problems in Unity 2018.2.9.

    I'm on a Mac.

    Unity's water assets are ancient (though that might be good for mobile). Here is an open source asset that is far better.

    Hi Ryiah

    Thanks for the link. I'll definitely check it out. How is the performance in comparison to Unity's water? Even better, about two years ago I purchased Aquas, I haven't used it since. How does it compare to that?
