Nice set of features. Seems that Unity Engine 4 could very well rival any modern-day engine

SWEET!!! ...... how do I use it?

Sooooo this is free to use right? Cause if it is, I may have something to make during months long holiday :D

It will be free to an extend ( some features are disabled ).

Not sure how many components come right out of the box. But if you really want to build something substantial, you do need some javascript, boo or C# knowledge.

I love the fact that components are directly compiled to properties for designers to play with just by dragging and dropping it onto their objects.

Their new Animation tool looks damn delicious.

Definitely learn Javascript for Unity development; Of the 3, it has the best balance of ease and versatility.

@Silent,

I find C# cleaner and more typesafe. JavaScript is easy to use, but in my experience the people using it make an " easy " mess out of it.

But to each his own.

@sidar

Just so you know, I didn't disagree. Programming is very preferential. Obviously C# is a more specific language, being so related to C++ (I know C++, but I haven't really used C# in anything).

SilentNegotiator2041d ago

I'm more on the art and design end of things, so I'd rather use an easy language any day.
