Welcome to the first tutorial For Unity 3D. Unity 3D is one of the top class game engine currently on the market. There are 2 versions of Unity , Unity 3D 3rd Party Version. And Unity 3D Pro.
Unity 3rd Party will cost you nothing and you can get it from this Link:
Note: To get the pro version you will need to download from the link above , then select pro trial when registering.
Okay so once you have downloaded Unity we are need to go to your desktop and select the desktop icon "Unity".
Once loaded we are going to click on "File" in the top left hand corner , we are then going to select "New Project". We Are going to call this project "3DCF" , we also need to select the toonshader.unitypackage which will be below the project Destination Path. Once you have done that , click create.
Now We need to Create a Cube , go into to GameObject Select , Create other and then select "Cube".
Go over to the properties of the cube and set the position of X , Y and Z to 0
Making the object easier to work with.
Now you need to download this file:Charmovejs
This is the character controller , it will make it possible for your character to move using the arrow keys.
We now need to import this asset , to do so right click in the project panel (Green Area Highlighted in image). We then need to navigate to our charmove.js file and click Import.
Once we have imported we need to click on the cube in the Hierarchy (Blue Area in image Below). We then need to click on Component , then on physics and then on character controller. Once we have done this we then need to find the charmove.js in the project view, to find this simply type in Charmove.js in the search field. Once you have found it we need to drag this onto the cube that we just created in the project view ( NOT the 3D view as it will not work).
Well thats all ive got time for tonight , i hope this has came in handy for you lot , i will bring out another tutorial tomorrow and the first part of the youtube series will also be out tomorrow!.
Cheers for your time!
