Unityアセットストアがオープンして早くも6年が経ちました。アセットストアのビジョンは、コミュニティーのメンバーがお互いに助け合える場所を作ることでした。具体的には、クリエイターが作成したコンテンツをお互いに利用可能にすることで、不足するスキルを補い合い、プロジェクトを前に進められるようにすることでした。どんな問題に直面しても、解決法を持っている誰かがいて、クリックすればそれが利用できるのです。
2010年にオープンして以来、アセットストアはUnityコミュニティーのメンバーが素晴らしい作品を作るのに役立つアセットやツールを見つけられる場所でした。36,000点以上のアセットやツールがアセットストアにあります。これらはUnityにとって必要不可欠な貴重な財産となっています。100万近いUnityユーザーが毎月アセットストアを訪れ、プロジェクトでアセットで活用したり、時には問題を解決したり、開発の効率を上げて時間を削減したり、様々な場面で利用しています。

この数ヶ月、アセットストアのユーザーエクスペリエンスを向上させる作業を続けてきました。

アセットストアのリニューアルの指針と目標は、コミュニティーがアセットやサービス、ニーズにあったソリューションをより見つけやすくすることと、クリエイターが適切なコンテンツをより早く簡単に見つけられるようにすること、です。
今日から、新しいアセットストアの限定公開を開始し、アセットストアの歴史に新たなページを刻みます。新しいアセットストアを体験いただくために、まずはクローズドベータとして、選ばれたユーザーにEメールにてご連絡します。Eメールをチェックしてみて下さいね!

  1. I cannot browse my owned assets by category anymore, Now I have to scroll past ALL of my assets to get to the textures?!

  2. Jeff Johnson

    Please put the categories back to the way they were. Browsing by category feels much worse. As an asset store publisher, how do these map from the old categories? Many of my assets I publish simply aren’t findable by browsing any more…

  3. The feedback section does not work, Submit button does nothing.

    The images should be switchable with keyboard arrows when the image gallery opens up, just like in any gallery.

    The fonts are too big for PCs and too much data is hidden because it can’t fit from the huge font. The description shows too little without expanding, it should be in its own scrollable box like before. Clicking ‘show more’ gets this huge wall of text on screen that takes forever to scroll to other assets from there. On the other hand, recommendations are scrolled horizontally, which is at odds with the wall of text that has now appeared.

    The top part is way too wide for a normal monitor screen. I can understand going wide in the Recommendations section but the actual asset part shows way too little for too much space it occupies.

    Overall it suffers from the same web design problem as the forum that got rolled back: it’s less visibility and thus less usability. The same problems are all over the website too. The fonts are huge and the usability of classic PCs is suffering. Overall I’m pretty disappointed these flat designs are in vogue now, and this “wasted space is prettier” mentality is getting really annoying. Apparently lessons from the Forum have not been learned.

  4. The old asset store wont load for me anymore. It just constantly refreshes itself.

  5. Rodolfo Rubens

    I just noticed that it is not showing all asset from a publisher, it’s only showing a maximum of 20 assets per publisher. Please fix this as publishers are losing sells.

  6. That looks so sick!

    How is the Wish List sorted and why are there no options to change the sorting? (At least as far as I can tell). Also, for the purchased page, I think the category sort from the Old Store was a little better. I’d like to see all my 3D models together, rather than in some random category varying on the theme.
    Also, when looking at the images, I’d like to be able to click left/right and use things such as the arrow keys to traverse them. Having to click each image manually on the left is a little sluggish and unintuitive.

  8. Is this going to add “Asset Testing” feature? The cost of assets are exorbitant to try each one. At least there should be a feature after the trial ends, we receive the .unitypackage, so transaction is final, but trying an asset is really needed.

    Otherwise we need to look for pirated copies just to try the asset, which is not rightful but current system pushes us to that system. Also as customers are picky for which asset to buy, the sales numbers stay low, but if we find relevant assets easily and testing successfully, our development can be quicker. As we can try as many assets as possible, we can buy assets that we normally wouldn’t buy too! Asset Testing is needed and it can kill necessity of many pirated-asset sharing websites.

    Nice job. thanks, but make the Header a smaller or make it wait at top, take too much space from screen.

    Built using Drupal like the rest of the site I hope :D

    Looks brilliant.

    From a graphical design point of view, it’s a nice improvement, it looks modern and fresh, I especially like having dropped the old, tiny, useless thumbs. Typography is good also, and the items pages look nicer (but you really shouldn’t have dropped the list of items from the same developer… WTF?!).
    From an usability point of view, I am sorry but it’s not a big thumbs up from me. To do the same stuff as in the old asset store users need now to do more clicks on an average, or browse more pages, and that’s not a really good thing. It would have been nice also to keep the sidebar on bigger screens, why not?! It was really useful, much better than those annoying drop-downs at the top. Yes, they are fancy, so web 2.0 and beyond, but definitely less practical.

    Then there’s the categories and classification system, and man that’s a disaster. I speak for audio, since that’s where I sell most of my stuff and… what the hell happened to the categories?
    You should have added MORE categories, not removing some. Subcategories were also so useful (i.e.: electronic > 8 bit). Certain music packs will just get lost now in the hundreds of other packages which are not even of the same kind, just “music”.
    A good example is a “piano-only” music pack. It cannot go inside orchestral, it’s not right, so it will just end in the generic “music” category. And in music, it won’t just show, since even if it sells well it will never become so popular… it’s not a super-mega-bundle, it’s not casual game music. So the only chance of being found is via the search, but people on marketplaces do not always perform a search, especially when they are not 100% sure what they want. In this case “piano” is an easy search, but there are similar packages who won’t be found just as easily with a simple word.
    So, no, categories for the audio section should really do a come-back in my opinion, and get improved too. Not by genre, like rock, country, blues… genres are a bit silly in this kind of marketplaces, but dividing them in usage: casual games, retro 8bit, retro 16bit, fantasy, space/ambient, etc…

    I hope you will consider my suggestions somehow… a bad user and customer experience will result in less sales for us, and if it’s bad for you, it will become a disaster for most of us.

  12. In the new Asset Store Beta there is bug in the Favorites section, it does not show the full list of my Favorites, it just shows 36 items and there is no way to go to the next page and it does not load more items automatically when I scroll to the bottom. Please fix the bug.

    The new interface loocks great, simple and quick thanks!.

  14. Searching in the ‘downloads’ screen is incredibly slow – it may be a latency issue (Australia), or something else; but when you have a few assets in your library, it’s basically a good five minutes exercise to download/update something specifically.

    Can you please do some kind of local non-serverside search/filtering on local assets? (also make it faster for big libraries); when the asset store is down, the downloads tab is far speedier and more reliable on the local-only view you guys have.

    Are there any estimates for final abandoning Asset Store and replacing it with real package management system?

  16. Unity Hater

    6月 26, 2017 3:29 pm

    NuGet, versioning, dependencies. These are what we need. Packages delivery and deployment. Not just site redesign.

    Installing, updating and removing libraries from current Asset Store is such PitA comparing to modern package management systems.

  17. Mindless 2012+ style web design with lots of empty space. Nothing with thought behind it.

    1. “space” is not only an essential design element, it help users spot important items and it greatly improves readability.

  18. Robert Cummings

    Would like to see improvements to the actual owned assets. I want an option to omit assets I already own from being promoted at me. That’s just primitive and dumb for a system that shows much potential like this.

    I honestly can’t stand the actual display and categorisation of assets I own. It’s borderline unusable and I have to search for terms using the awfully slow #packages search box. I don’t freaking care for your hashtag design. I want a list of alphabetical products I own that I can quickly scan and get to.

    I don’t want to be messing with linux or 1999 indexing to get to my own paid for content.

    1. Oh yeah the search is weirdly slow though your own assets! I hope they make that side of things a little nicer.

  19. The Asset Store started in 2010? Are you sure? That was 7 years ago though.

  20. Thomas Abanie

    6月 24, 2017 12:02 am

    I’d like to see any asset I won NOT be listed. Whenever you search you get a list of assets, however most people have over 1000 assets. It would be nice id they were NOT listed or highlighter with a different color.

  21. How about requiring all asset store developers to have a unity forem?

  22. Using the Unity editor to access the store
    1) Will it still take 5 minutes to load?
    2) Will it tell up what version of the plug-in is being used in the project?
    3) Will it allow you to print out the description of the assets you own?
    4) Will it allow tabs at the top of the window so one can drag and drop bought assets into categories?

    If not, then who cares?

    I seem to be having an issue where I cannot checkout from the old Unity Asset Store. Is anyone else having this issue?

  24. Rodolfo Rubens

    6月 23, 2017 10:03 pm

    Ah, very nice, I’m liking it so far. But we need a previous screenshot and next screenshot buttons.

    RSS Feed or a timeline is important. Is not simple to look all 50 new assets each day. if is it possible a page that contains the latest 500 assets wit the image.

    1. Andrew Horobin

      6月 27, 2017 9:21 pm

      We do have the most recent 10 submission RSS page located here: http://u3d.as/feed/latest.rss
      We will look at options to incorporate this more prominently in the new store design.

  26. Interesting, great job for the most part, I’m excited to discover it.

    But as a UI designer, big list of sliding elements, that moves on a click of a button, this is great for touch devices, but really hard to look on a normal PC screen, I find that really exhausting to see :/

  27. I don’t see the “Latest” RSS Feed. That is not going away is it? That is what I look at most, and subscribe too and read daily.

    1. Andrew Horobin

      6月 27, 2017 9:19 pm

      The ‘Latest’ feed is not currently in the new store design, however this feature is an RSS feed and can be checked directly or embedded in any RSS compatible widgets or software: http://u3d.as/feed/latest.rss

  28. Philippe Da Silva

    6月 23, 2017 1:02 pm

    I can’t seem to figure out in the new asset store how to view the latest updates on my currently owned assets? That’s one of the reasons why I come back on a daily basis to the store.
    Thanks

  29. Arnold Wittenberg

    6月 23, 2017 12:06 pm

    I can’t see the new version yet but it is not a day to soon!
    At the moment the current asset store is gone from not so good to worse.
    The highlighted assets are replaced by silly collections like ‘Rocks’, the staff picks are no longer linked on the main screen and the hole site is very slow at times.
    NOT to mention the Asset Kits packs that are useless and weren’t expanded for months now. What was promised when we all where asked to go to Unity Plus and higher. So far the asset kits packs are one great disappointment.

    So looking forward to the new layout and if the preview images in this blog are correct then finally 2D has its own private section.
    I hope does asset kits are replaced or at least updated.

  30. ok fine.
    Looks good but please improve your asset store publisher portal as well. We still need to add html tags for formatting like it’s 2004 :/

  31. The new asset store website is slow and very unresponsive on my computer. It sometimes even locks-up firefox for a couple of seconds. Hopefully you’re able to sort out these issues.

    1. Andrew Horobin

      6月 27, 2017 9:17 pm

      We are still undergoing many optimizations; in fact we released a big update earlier this week. You should be experiencing faster load times compared to your initial visit.

  32. It’d be great to have a sort by “1st release date” in addition of “updated”.
    With that, it’d be possible to easily track real new release in a section without crawling through pages of updated assets.
    Thanks to consider this option ! :-)

  33. Will you have Filters in the new site by any chance ? It will be great to see filter search! It saves lot of time!

    1. Andrew Horobin

      6月 27, 2017 9:15 pm

      Thank you for the suggestion! We are in the works of developing and adding search filter features to the store. Stay tuned!

  34. where is the search filter.. its the only useful part of the asset store, and even then it could have been better..

    now I see you just get a “Type here to search assets”

    crap.. like this blog design

    improvements to seeing past asset update history (cus its really shit not being able to see past change logs, let alone not being able to download a previous release.(the later I could understand not being an option for 500mb+ assets,))

    honestly its good you guys don’t have completely competent competition.. yet.

  35. Is there a way to search for all assets currently on sale? If I enter on_sale:YES into the search criteria, it only returns the item that is currently on 24hr sale. I see a bunch of stuff on sale now, and it would be sweet to browse through them.

    1. Andrew Horobin

      6月 27, 2017 9:13 pm

      Yes! ‘On_sale:yes’ is still supported, however, the 24h sale is the only item on sale at the moment. Also, if you have a Plus/Pro subscription, you receive 20%/40% off our asset kits, but these do not surface in the ‘On_sale:yes’ filter.

      1. Hi Andrew, thanks for getting back to me

        I have a Plus Sub and have picked up plenty of those assets. Very nice! … However, I see other assets on sale that are not part of an asset kit or 24hr sale. I presume these assets have been discounted at the publishers request for a set period of time. Is there a way to filter out these sale items to browse through?

  36. Every time I click on “Try the new Asset Store beta”, it refreshes the page and then takes me back to the old one. Is this a bug?

    1. Andrew Horobin

      6月 27, 2017 9:11 pm

      Sorry you are experiencing this issue. We are aware of it and our dev team has been working very hard on tracking it down. In the meantime, please try logging out of your Asset Store account and logging back in, as well as trying different browsers.

  37. Brian Hudson

    6月 23, 2017 1:00 am

    I’d still like to be able to favorite a publisher, so I’m notified whenever they make something new or anything they have available goes on sale, rather than having to manually add all their assets to my wishlist.

    1. Shaun Procter

      6月 23, 2017 9:25 am

      I would really appreciate this feature too

    2. Andrew Horobin

      6月 27, 2017 9:11 pm

      This is a great suggestion! We will definitely look into this as we add new features to the new Asset Store.

  38. I’m excited to test out.

    Are custom sales by publishers now supported (And searchable?)

    1. Andrew Horobin

      6月 27, 2017 9:06 pm

      Sales are searchable using the parameter ‘on_sale:yes’ in the search bar. As for custom/personal sales, we are working on a number of updates for publishers that will come with new features like this; we are still evaluating where a personal sales tool will fit on the roadmap.

    6月 22, 2017 11:56 pm

    I’ve already said in in the feedback form you sent via mail, but the site is slow as hell for me (latest Chrome on Mac OSX). The current asset store loads pretty fast and is a breeze to browse through. While i do like the new design, i can’t really enjoy as much as I would like. Any page change takes about 5-10 seconds, which is bad when you are searching through a list and quickly want to see the packages one by one.

    1. Andrew Horobin

      6月 27, 2017 9:04 pm

      Thank you for the feedback! The store is still undergoing optimizations and will be responding much faster. We ran some upgrades earlier this week that greatly improved loading times. You will see faster speeds as we keep adding improvements.

  40. Nice job. thanks to asset store team.

    But it can be better by making Header collapsible not fixed.
