  1. What's Up Fellow Unity Users!

    No problem! I learned a lot from Quill18Creates, if you are completely new to C# you can start with his beginner tutorials
  2. Looking for translators

    I don't think she will be interested in unpaid work, but my girl friend is a trainee Translator for English/Japanese. If you ever need a Japanese translation (paid work) I can see if she would be up for it
  3. What's Up Fellow Unity Users!

    Welcome! Pro-tip, stop using UnityScript, they have already started to discontinue it in the newest version of Unity! C# is the future!
  4. Dropbox Alternative

    So with google cloud you install APIs. So my server runs a Compute Engine API (To the run javascript and support SQL requests) and I have a 100mb "Storage Bucket". this normally cost me under $10 in total a month as it charges per use and my server only gets used by up to 100 people who are members of my society. Not sure how much it would cost for you, but if you know what you want you can check here https://cloud.google.com/products/calculator/
  5. Dropbox Alternative

    When I say google, I don't mean google drive. I use an actual Google Cloud Server running a Compute Engine.
  6. Dropbox Alternative

    I use direct sever access with a Google Compute Server. It charges you based on use. I host my own forum for my University Society on it and can also run builds directly from it as well as store files for direct download. The company I work for use Microsoft Azure for the same purposes. I prefer Google Cloud due to the price being based off how much I use it. So some months I pay a few pennies and others maybe £5 ish.
  7. This was posted years ago, been using it since I first found it.
  8. Humble Book Bundle

    I have this link open all the time to check for the daily deals, it changes each day (right now it is GitHub Essentials) mostly it is python stuff but once in a while you get some good find, like the Unity 5.x Shader Cookbook I got
  9. keycode and ui button

    It seems you don't know how the UI system in Unity works, I would start looking at that... https://unity3d.com/learn/tutorials/topics/user-interface-ui/ui-button?playlist=17111 Regardless, instead of checking for a Input event, just create a function that does what the button should do and make it public. Then in the inspector create the button, and in the "OnClick" assign the script and select the correct function.
  10. fbx issues with blender

    I don't think I can be much help as your model is animated, but during my course work we had to model on Maya but I thought I would be a bit sneaky and do it blender then export it from maya after, and after ages trying to get it to work I only managed to get Obj formats working, which don't store animation data :/ Without the Autodesk plugin blenders core fbx loader might not work on the same structure and only Obj formats have a fixed standard. Best thing I can think of is to import it as an Obj, then import the rig with the dae format and bind it back to the mesh.
  11. Pixel Art

    Check out this video that shows the work flow really well (although this is much more detailed pixel art)
  12. Pixel Art

    I did a pixel are project for uni once, I used photoshop, set up a small canvas (so like 16x16 for 16 bit or 32 x 32 for 32bit etc) then zoomed in so it fill the screen, then just use the default brush on a small setting to fill in each pixel. best thing to do is to look at what you want to make and just try and recreate the shape in a flat color, add a darker color outline. then start to add detail shapes, then shading.

  14. Hello guys

    Interested to know what you will do with such a project as this is a forum for developers, not potential asset flippers.
  15. Hi everyone, I am Calum and as the title says I am a full time student and programmer. What I mean by this is that I have been a professional programmer for 5 years working 9am to 6pm 5 days a week. the past 2 years I have been taking time off work in large chunks to attend university doing a programming degree, but as soon as I am back home from uni I am back to working full-time. So basically all I ever do is program but never on what projects I actually want to be working on! Due to all this I avoid programming in my rare free time to give my self a break, but have always wanted to work on some of ideas I have but never felt up to making a team as people will always push me to do work on it when I simply do not feel up to it. Any way, welcome to the Busy People team!
