Сегодня важный день. Мы выпускаем Unity 5. Сегодня. Да, вы можете скачать его сейчас.

В Unity 5 более тысячи улучшений, и о каждом из них мы хотели бы поговорить. Но мой пост не об этом. Он размещен в тот момент, когда я выхожу на сцену, чтобы официально анонсировать Unity 5 на GDC в Сан-Франциско. Мы будем в прямом эфире, и вы увидите Йоахима, Ральфа Хауверта, Тодда Хупера, Уилла Голдстоуна, которые глубже познакомят вас с техническими обновлениями в Unity 5.0. Вы также, конечно, увидите Дэвида! Вместе с нами будет несколько гостей из отрасли, которые расскажут о Unity 5 своими словами. Посетите наш сайт Unity3d.com, чтобы получить подробную информацию и разъяснения. Также Йоахим поделится некоторыми мыслями в конце этой недели, как только закончится небольшое сумасшествие начала GDC.

Наблюдать за мероприятием в прямом эфире здесь:

Так как я не могу рассказать обо всех технических деталях о Unity 5 в короткой заметке, я хочу поделиться с вами идеями, которые, как мы считаем, определяют Unity 5.

  1. Мощный графический движок, способный отображать красивые, сложные и детализированные сцены.
  2. Расширяемый и многофункциональный редактор с поддержкой 64-разрядных систем и большим количеством новых инструментов, таких как наш огромный интегрированный набор для работы с аудио*. (*Полная поддержка мульти-треков в аудиомикшер. Очень здорово).
  3. Unity – лидер в отрасли по количеству поддерживаемых платформ, и их количество продолжает расти вместе с WebGL улучшением поддержки консолей и внедрением IL2CPP. Unity теперь поддерживает 21(!) платформу.
  4. Вместе с Unity 5 мы запускаем сервис Unity Cloud Build, который предоставляет разработчикам возможность повысить свою производительность и эффективность с помощью облака. Узнайте больше о Unity 5 здесь.

Бизнес-модель …. Это один из главных вопросов для всех. Мы развиваем лучшую в индустрии модель лицензирования в более лучшую. Мы добавляем ценность и мощь, поэтому каждый получает свободу для творчества, которая необходима для достижения успеха. Прежде чем я расскажу о нашей модели ценообразования, я хочу воспользоваться моментом и описать философию нового ценообразования. Многие, я уверен, предпочли бы просто увидеть цифры. Они будут. В первую очередь, знайте, что наше ценообразование для Unity 5 – это больше про Unity и ценность, которую она в себе несет, нежели что-то другое. Это полностью отличается от других компаний, в которых я когда-либо работал. Мы не ставили перед собой цели прибыли, мы работали в совершенно другом направлении. Мы поставили перед собой две цели и работали с разработчиками, исходя из них.

Цель № 1 – одним из основополагающих принципов Unity является идея, что мы упорно работаем над решением очень сложных технических проблем, с которыми наши разработчики/пользователи не должны иметь дело. Чтобы это стало возможным, наши лучшие инструменты сами по себе должны быть ценностью.

Цель № 2 — глубоко в культуре Unity лежит принцип демократизации разработки игр. Цель состоит в том, чтобы цена отображала наши принципы. Принцип демократизации означает, что мы делаем все возможное, чтобы дать Unity энтузиастам, инди или профессионалам, которые могут не иметь средств для его покупки. Это о том, чтобы каждый мог творить с помощью самых лучших инструментов, которые мы создаем. Я не буду чрезмерно сентиментальным, но для меня большая честь работать в компании с такой миссией и принципами.
Итак, о модели ценообразования. У нас есть два варианта.

Unity 5 Professional Edition

С Unity 5 Professional Edition мы даем командам любого размера невероятную ценность. Unity 5 Pro будет иметь ту же начальную цена, что и Unity 4 Pro: подписка за $75/месяц и $1500 за бессрочную лицензию. Пользователи версии Pro получают всю мощь Unity 5 и плюс к этому:

• Team License
• Unity Cloud Build Pro (12-месячная подписка)
• Unity Analytics Pro (на данный момент в бете)
• Game Performance Reporting (на данный момент в режиме превью)
• Asset Store Уровень 11 (новая коллекция бесплатных ассетов, доступных каждый месяц)
• Доступ к превью- и бета-версиям
• Никаких ограничений по полученным доходам, никаких отчислений от полученной прибыли.

Мы считаем, что это огромная ценность. Unity 5 Pro включает очень много улучшений в сравнении с Unity 4 и предлагает множество дополнительных услуг и Team License, и все это – по базовой цене Unity 4. Инфляция пошла в обратном направлении… или, иначе говоря, соотношение цены лучше, чем раньше.

Unity 5 Personal Edition

Демократизация разработки игр — это то, во что мы верим. Это в ДНК тех, кто работает в Unity. Это одна из вещей, которые привлекли меня в компанию. Это также одна из вещей, которые наиболее важны для игровой индустрии. Помня это, мы запускаем Unity 5 Personal Edition. Unity 5 Personal Edition предоставляет всю мощь движка и редактора Unity 5. Для уточнения — это важно — это такой же движок и редактор Unity 5, что и в Pro Edition. Он поставляется со всеми функциями, включая Profiler, Occlusion Culling, Render-to-Texture, и специальные пост-эффекты, а также все крупные функции Unity 5, такие как физически-точные шейдеры, Enlighten, Reflection Probe и многое другое.

Unity 5 Personal Edition бесплатный. Без роялти. Абсолютно бесплатный.

Unity 5 Personal Edition для профессиональных разработчиков, инди, энтузиастов и студий с доходом (и финансированием) менее $100 000.

Вы можете посмотреть полное сравнение лицензий здесь.

Скачивайте Unity 5, играйте с ней, экспериментируйте и создавайте что-то красивое и интересное.

Сегодня важный день. Надеюсь, вы так же воодушевлены, как и мы.

  1. Now Im really conflicted. Ive spent the past few months investing time in learning Unity. I was looking forward to buying 5, but now I see its going to require 1500 + 1500 just to remove the splash screen?? My work is speculative but has to look top notch to attract investment, so I need my own custom splash screen.
    I would gladly spend $1500 for a perpetual ios + android + desktop version, but the loading screen that says “Personal Edition” is a complete barrier for me, as is the alternative… paying $3000 / 4500.

    Shame Unity, I was all ready to give you $1500.

    Now, not so much. :(

  2. give us DARK SKIN! Unreal Engine 4 has it.

    Thank you very much for free Unity!
    I’m happy!

  6. Presonal Edition on the splash screen prevent me using unity5

  7. Thank you Unity for giving us hobbyists the Pro features! Keep up the great work.

    Thats Really great, but while it doesn’t have Native Linux support for the editor i’m still planing to use Minko/UE4/Godot.

    Hope Linux Native will arrive soon!

    1. I too can’t wait for a native editor, but amazingly it ran straight out of the box with playonlinux!!!! =)

  9. This is entirely my fault, but:

    Make game almost ready with Unity 4. Try to import it and compile scripts auto with Unity 5. Does not work at all. Decides to corrupt all the files. 6 months of work down in a drain.

    1. Really sorry to hear that, we always recommend backing up projects before upgrading to a new major version of Unity. If you have any further issues, head over to our community site for help http://unity3d.com/community

    2. So you didn’t back up your files at all and especially before doing the import?

      Can’t really blame Unity for this, it’s a hard lesson you just learnt about taking responsibility for your stuff.

      Next time at least make a copy of it somewhere else before doing something risky and look into getting a backup system set up. I’d suggest something like Mozy for you. Look into Git when you can too.

  10. Is anyone else having this problem. spent all day downloading unity5 only to have it freeze when i double click the icon and the small window opens saying choose which license. I can’t pick anything cause it freezes and becomes un responsive. Been trying to download it for weeks and its pissing me off that this is happening. Is anyone else going through this?

    1. Have you created a post on our Forums or Answers about this, it would be easier to help you with the issue there, include operating system too.

    I recently tried creating a new account but the result is the same. In my Mac with Yosemite, the country picker not works so i can complete the form and use Unity 5.

    1. Try to pick country using arrow keys and enter. Good luck!

  19. This is great! As far as I can tell you kept all the good stuff from the previous release.

    I honestly don’t get why people are complaining, I really like Unity’s business model, and it’s one of the main reasons I decided to work with this particular game engine.

    GJ

  20. Awesome — can’t wait to try it out!

  21. great work unity guys you are the best. But can you provide an offline installer rather than online installer.(just A request)

    1. Use «Additional downloads» from download page…

      or use official torrent:
      http://netstorage.unity3d.com/unity/5b98b70ebeb9/unity-5.0.0f4.torrent

  22. Hmm..
    Today I downloaded the Personal edition & tried to launch it for the first time. But when Unity 5 asked to select a country out of the list, I wasn’t able to select one, and could not proceed at all. Is this just me or are there other ppl experiencing the same?
    My system is: MacBook Pro with Retina display, Mac OS X 10.10.2 Yosemite

    1. At firs run unity has to be activated… so you have to have unity account.. try make one at this page: https://accounts.unity3d.com/sign-up

      1. Guillermo Cortes Cuesta

        Март 10, 2015 в 9:25 пп

        I have the same OS (Yosemite) and the same error. I have an account from two years ago. The problem is that the label to choose country does´t work (and doesn´t show my registered country) so there are not possibility to complete the form so there are no access to Unity.

    2. i had the same problem
      you have to drag the list
      email me if you have question

      1. Just use you arrow keys

  23. Amazing. Fantastic news guys, Unity has become an amazing tool.

  24. This could be an April Fools 2015 joke, but it’s true!
    All the features that an indie developer could dream of are available for free now.
    I remember I was asking how many and what features will be in free version.
    And, now, here You go — You’ve them all here. Almost all.
    It’s absolutely stupid to complain. Thanks, Unity T.!
    I understand that there is a strong marketing behind this decision.
    Anyway — thanks for Your efforts and job! I’m upgrading to 5 at the moment.
    Yeah, I hope its all true because now I’m launching Unity 5 for the very first time..

  25. when i install the update, should the old version on my computer uninstall itself or i have to uninstall myself ??? … if i have to uninstall myself the old version, then how because i had made some game using the old version..

    1. I installed Unity 5 this morning. I don’t think it did anything to my Unity 4 installation.

  26. I don’t know why Unity still not put Dark Skin in Personal Edition, while Blender, Unreal Engine, and other free software had a Dark Skin…

  27. splash screen “Personal Edition” means what I will use 4.6 for a while:) I can’t risk my time and show it to my client. 75usd X 3 is not bad deal, but I can pay what for all year… as I am not programer.. at moment what would be 50% of all my unity income….

    1. I meant can’t pay…

  28. Hi Unity,

    I really like the new animated splash screen a lot, but can you guys please remove the «Personal Edition» beneath the logo? It’s just a request, thanks :)

    Regards,
    Brian

  29. @Complainers: SOME (and no, not all) of you guys sound like a bunch of spoiled little cry babies who can’t even see how cool it is that you can get an extremely great 3D game engine *FOR FREE*. I mean, come on, games engines used to be licensed at millions of dollars.

  30. Hi, this is exciting news! However, I can’t find if the personal edition allows video playback. I know one of the big limitations of the free version of Unity 4.x was no video playback ability. Can you play video now in the Personal edition of Unity 5? Or does video playback require the Pro version? I don’t mean net streaming either, I mean playback of local video assets such as .mov files or what have you.

    Thanks!

    1. Video played fine for my….

      try:
      movTexture.Play();

      1. public MovieTexture movTexture;
        void Start() {
        GetComponent().material.mainTexture = movTexture;
        movTexture.Play();
        }

        1. MovieTexture is a Pro/Advance feature only.

          D:\Unity\Editor\Data\Documentation\en\Manual\class-MovieTexture.html

          It was one of the first things that I tried :P

          Paul

  31. does anyone know how to get to the textured scene in the editor? It only let me choose shaded and wireframe and such on unity 5. I cant add any terrain textures. please help

  32. Downloading and looking to use.

  33. I’m growing traumatized with Unity monetization sudden and radical changes. In the past I bought an indie licence a couple months before it being set free. On February I started a 12 months subscription commitment to Unity and Android Pro to discover now that — effectively as it seems — the only think I’ll get for those $150/month is dark skin and optional splash screen.

    We all are smart and glad to support and fund well our technology makers so they can keep their development going, specially when we used the technology successfully.
    But, as a Unity user, I feel more toyed than a Supercell player. Those changing pricing policies signals inadequacies of the model. And now the appeal is the ergonomics of dark skin and the shaming of «personal»?

    Unity is marketing that «5% is not free», but I honestly like that business model more**. Even if 5% could be more than $4500 (Android and iOS together), it’s still a small and fair commitment. They don’t try to hold me back in any fashion in the hopes of getting their sustain. A game project is very unpredictable and a revenue of $90.000 isn’t as easily expected as we would like. I guess most of us would have that in common sense. Using UE you can have to spend a lot, but at least there’s no huge gap between free and selling a liver upfront for some weird blackmail. For that matter I almost liked it better when Unity itself was divided into packages. Now the investment holes are reversed. UE is better for start ups, and Unity more suitable for big developers.

    ** With those sexy blueprints (not as much as Quest3d, but still) and better communication/support, if only UE was more Android friendly and stable…

    1. Andre — With Unity 5.0 Personal Edition we give you Unity 5.0 for free as long as you are under $100k in revs or funding. If your revs or funding are above $100k, you can get Unity 5.0 Pro for $75 / month base with an additional $75 / month with iOS or Android. Or if you prefer you can spend $1500 base and $4500 for Unity 5.0 Pro + iOS + Android.

      I am not sure I quite understand your concern. If you are pre-revenue, you can start with Personal Edition (for free) and if you are successful commercially and generate $100k in revenues you can then upgrade to Pro.

      I hope this helps explain things. Let me know.

      John

      1. I was digressing about the unreliable pricing policy. But I guess it was just my bad luck that twice I got into Unity before big business events. Now I’ve learned about GDC and bias to sudden changes.

        But since you asked about my case (I’m way under 100k) my concearn is…

        1. Last month I started the subscription of $150 (Unity and Android Pro), and that ties me to a 12 month plan. I wanted — between other engine features — to be able to play videos. But with Unity 5 having it all that I will be able to use for free, I could use a budget relief to adequate to my use tier on Unity 5 instead of being tied to 4 pricing. Would it be possible to just cancel the subscription commitment since it’s being offered a refund to pre-orders?

        2. I did like Unity Analytics concept, as part of pro and would gladly keep the subscription to Unity Pro without the add-on. Seems on budget and valuable.

        3. Out of curiosity, what are future plataforms exclusive to Pro? Any concearn if I’m into VR? Some of the features are not clear and seem shady instead of being valuable — like the monthly random assets for free.

        4. Unless I misunderstood — since it’s stated that the free version has all the engine features — the only thing we get now with the mobile add-on is removal of splash screen for those builds? It would be nice if the price of the add-ons would be reviewed (if not eliminated at all). It was expensive before (100% after to the engine/editor itself), now it’s too little value for the same price.

        I like the return of small modules offering — even better as services. Unity 4 pricing had a huge gap between free and paid that didn’t allow the likes of me to payback to Unity. Now just those add-ons that still feel overpriced. It just misses a dark skin isolated pack :P

        1. They know that Personal Edition «Splash screen» «Will kill your game». Your game loosing momentum at start and every player will drop the game cause it’s iritating. Find me one Unity game on top 100 listwith a Unity logo splash screen, no boddy doing this! That’s why they ganging on the «Splash screen» so much on the first place! And without editors dark skin, i’am just loosing my appetite for developing.

        2. that’s absolutely true the current pricing model is miserable, it’s made for the big devs, i just started to work with unity and honestly i can’t progress with it this way, i can’t pay for Pro with android and ios now it is impossible and i can’t benefit from the *cough cough* «FREE» version the splash screen kills it.

          although c# scripting is more to my liking, but guess i would be moving to UrealEngine and check out those blueprints the 5% royalty is much better price model, low income starters will have a chance to grow, while 5% royalty won’t hurt the big guys it’s overall a much more suitable way of doing it, and learning UE is a great asset it is a BEAST Engine the graphics and possibilities with it are just phenominal

        3. There is information on our FAQ about what you can do with your subscription if you bought it before March 3rd. http://unity3d.com/unity/faq/2494

          Analytics is currently in beta, you can sign up here http://unity3d.com/unity/analytics When it’s released we will have different pricing tiers, so it’s still accessible if you don’t have Pro.

          The new platforms is to make sure that we have you covered for any future tech that may have a Unity deployment option for, we don’t know what these are yet because they don’t exist…yet :)

          The mobile add-on price are also aimed at those who earn over 100K.

          @DANY I’m not sure how you may be struggling to progress with development, with the personal edition, we have removed any engine feature barrier we previously had. Additionally, you only need to buy a license if you hit over 100K in revenue, it’s a one time purchase with no revenue share.

    2. I hate the splash screen, i wanna put my own splash screen to the game and not just jump in from unity splash screen to the menu ,and second important thing is that i can’t publish paid apps with the personal edition only Free apps with ads, i am not struggling to progress with my coding itself with unity, but with my final products done using it.

  34. 외쳐 Unity!

    1. Of course, i think you are in with very good luck with Unity 5.0. Huge upgrade in graphics and lighting, a bunch of adds to the editor, some very cool cloud services, more platforms. And, if you qualify and prefer — all free with Personal Edition and, what i think is a great value for Pro, if that is your choice.

      As for future platforms — we’ll come to those decisions as we work along and see what new platforms launch. Personally, i am a fan of VR and AR, having worked pretty closely with the Oculus team in 2013 and 2014. Some really amazing things coming from Oculus and many others. We don’t have all our plans figured out yet in the very fast moving space….

      John

  35. This is amazing. The entire suite available for free for us indie developers. Looking forward to growing up soon so that I will pay for the pro version soon.

    Cheers.

  36. I’m noticing that the new splash screen says personal addition, it would be awesome if you guys considered removing that… I think it cheapens your branding. Instead make a cool unity opening logo that make both yourself and the developer look like a pro. You’ll probably get more converts that way — from other engines, too!

  37. ありがとうございました…
    愛♥

  38. 1. Awesome!, The right thing to do. Unity is awesome and now with multiple render targets, it makes a huge difference.

    2. Why stop there? UI skin and loading screen? really?

    3. The new loading screen that says «Personal Edition» is actually going to kill it for me. I didn’t mind the old loading screen, that just says «Unity», but the new one just lets everyone know that you’re not «pro» — and not just unity devs who know the deal, but now EVERYONE! — It cheapens my game.

    so my option is to spend 4500 and buy pro, which is prohibitive for me as a hobbyist (who hopes to publish something some day!) or move to other options like unreal.

    i would gladly spend maybe 1500 for a perpetual ios + android + desktop (or even a loading screen that doesn’t say «Personal Edition») even with a 100k/yr limit, but 4500 is too much. (esp now the US exchange rate is in the tank!)

    1. Completely agree! I would gladly spend $1500 for a perpetual ios + android + desktop version.
      The loading screen that says “Personal Edition” is a complete barrier for me, as is the alternative… paying $4500.

      Shame Unity, I was all ready to give you $1500.

      Now, not so much. :(

  39. The changes sound great, but as others have mentioned, why not release control of skin color? If asset developers had more control over skin color, we could make our products look more professional.

  40. Some history:
    — Unreal Engine is the only way you can make Awesome AAA games if you don’t have $$$$$$ to build your own engine

    — Unity introduces an easy-to-use game prototyping engine that costs either $$$ for indie or $$$$ for pro

    — Unreal doesn’t care. it’s still the world’s most awesome game engine.

    — Unity Drops Indie license and makes basic version free (By this time it’s a proper game engine)

    — Unreal introduces free trimmed down version of Unreal Engine without source code access called UDK

    — Unity introduces $75.00/mo subscription licences.

    — Unreal introduces $19/mo subscription licences for full blown unreal engine 4 + source code access on GIT (plus a 5% revenue share when you make your first $50,000)

    — Crytek introduces $9/mo subscription license for cry engine 3. (and then has a financial Crysis, Pun intended :-D )

    — Unity Introduces Personal edition license with Unity 5 which has all the features of unity pro and the ‘Powered by Unity’ splash screen we’ve all come to love :-P

    — Unreal introduces $0 subscription for full-blown unreal engine 4 + source code (plus a 5% revenue share when you make your first $50,000)

    — Fill in the blank ________________________________________________________________________

  41. Any plans on adding «Personal» license option to Unity 4.x?
    Would reeeeally appreaciate that…

  42. Thank you for this gift. I love Unity3d

  43. Why monodevelop expand blocks on mac, its old old old bug, and you not fixed it with Unity 5, i can’t work on mac because its expand all my blocks on every save, it’s blow my mind !

    1. unity 3d not ran help to ran unity tanks

  44. Amazing Unity, can’t wait to see more great stuff from Unity 5. Btw, thanks for Level 11, got all 4 awesome assets for free :) can’t wait to see what offers from Level 11 next month.

  45. I just hope we can finally have a nice guide on porting to Android TV, am I able to request a tutorial for Android TV and a 3d platformer here? I’m so excited!!

  46. I’d pay e100 for a the Pro Dark Skin…

  47. John were saying about all features to be free.
    Please give a black UI away!

  48. Though UE 4 has better graphics than unity 5 yet unity is a better choice for multi platform devs and mobile developers. I hope unity will grow even better and there will be soon AAA games out of unity!

  49. Amazing ! Thanks Unity !

  50. smelling propaganda

    Март 4, 2015 в 7:58 дп

    First of all: it’s xmas for developers. Unity, UE4, Source 2 all practically free. And many other smaller engines are also dirt cheap. Good times!

    But this taking punches against Epic with lines like this: «Unity 5 Personal Edition is free. No royalty. Free.» Kinda rubs me the wrong way.

    Why? Well, no source code access, practically no support, no team license, 100k cap, no beta access, no future platforms (what the hell happens then?). Yeah, «free» indeed. ;) If you want to put tools side by side comparison and take some punches, at least have the courtesy to do so with the correct versions: UE4 vs. Unity _PRO_ . And remember also, that Epic still offers customizable licenses, i.e. no royalties, IF you want and believe in your game so much, that you don’t want to go the royalty route.

  51. You guys just never fail to make my day. You’re amazing, all of you. Thanks so much!

  52. Good to know … just started the 12 Month Subscription Plan 5 days ago … and now that:

    The Form for «Transferring to the flexible Unity Pro subscription plan» doesn’t accept any pdf’s to finish the application!

  53. The download link for 5.0 build-in shaders is broken.

    I originally purchased a perpetual Unity Pro license for 4.x. Then I purchased the perpetual Pro 5.x license when it was available for pre-order. Now a number of people have been asking in the comments section about the process to get a refund on the Pro license for 5.x. The two answers I saw state to look at the FAQ but I do not see any item in the faq addressing refunds of Unity 5 licenses or the information is not clearly / easily found.

    So what I would like to know is:

    1. Can I get a refund on Unity 5 Pro so that I switch to Unity 5 Personal Edition.

    2. If I do so and at a later time I decide to re-purchase a Unity 5 license:
    a: will there be perpetual licenses available or only monthly (which you currently anyway force to yearly) ones?
    b: if perpetual licenses will still be available, will they be at the pre-order price or what price?

    3. Even though I originally had a license for Unity Pro 4.x, the minute I pre-purchased the 5.x license, the my license changed to «5.x» under my account. If I were to get a refund on my 5.x license, what would happen with my 4.x license, since I don’t seem to be able to find this one anywhere in my account anymore. Basically, I still run Unity 4.6 for some things and I want to make sure that returning the 5 license does not all of a sudden kill my ability to run 4 in Pro mode, since I originally paid for a perpetual license for it.

    Thanks,

    1. 1. Look in the ‘Licensing and Activation’ section of the FAQ — specifically for the question «I pre-ordered Unity 5 Professional but I want to use Unity 5 Personal Edition, what are my options?»

      2. We have no plans to stop selling perpetual licenses. There’s no guarantee that we won’t change the price in the future, but we do not today have any plan to change it.

      3. The refund should restore your Unity 4 Pro license.

  55. Cool now has a stupid bug preventing compiling my game in this version 5.

    I tried with a clean project, with no asset and plugin, 0, nothing, nothing with him, if I’m going to create the terrain, appears an error rainfall on the console. And it shows a trillion «jobprocess.exe» in the task manager.

    «Failed executing external process for ‘Clustering’ job Exit code:. ‘-1073741819’.»

    And the same sentence with other code numbers also.

    Here’s a screenshot:

    Note that it is a clean project, with nothing in it, I just create a new terrain and starts errors.

    I’m sorry, Mr. Riccitiello, but it is not this way you will be able to block the success of the Unreal Engine.

    Windows 7 64
    Unity 5 64
    AMD PII 1090T
    8GB RAM
    RADEON HD 6850

    1. Hi, I am not able to reproduce your error. Do you have a log file handy? Also, is there space left on the partition used for the cache (see Edit->Preferences->GI Cache)?

      1. Theres a couché blocking my comments, i will not waste time sending the screenshots again

      2. same problem here, how can i send the editor log?

      3. also, how is it that you log in then you come into this page, in order to commen to you have to leave your email details again, then i check if i’m logged in or not it says log in, when i try i’m looged in already, then i come back and still not logged in…

  56. First, I love Unity and I’m really excited about this launch!! Already downloaded it and been geeking out about it with my friends.

    But mostly, I want to know, who is this mustache guy in the promotional images? He’s really handsome and I hope he’s some sort of ongoing mascot for Unity5. I want to draw fanarts of him but I don’t know how to refer to him even, other than «that guy in the Unity5 launch materials» lol

    Between Unity 5 and Unreal Engine 4, I was getting real excited. Both let you develop games for Linux, which I love. But what’s disappointing is that neither provides Linux-native versions of the development tools after years of people asking. When’s that going to change?

  58. I just want to cry, I’m so happy!

  59. Awesome stuff! Can’t wait to get home tonight and fire it up. Thanks for the free upgrade!

  60. Thank you very much.

  61. Nice work guys :)

  62. wow! downloading this just now — and very excited about the engine features!!

    thanks so much!

  63. And you still can’t change the color of the editor without paying money…you have got to be kidding me.

    1. Unity, I’m sorry you have to deal with comments like this. Not all free users feel this way, I’m one of them.

  64. I want a full refund,

    I spent my money on buying unity 4 then the upgrade to unity 5, just to see how everyone will get the same updates for free.

    I WANT MY MONEY BACK!!!

    1. Sure thing — head to the FAQ page for details on that.

  65. Wow, you guys are awesome!!!

  66. keep up the awesome guys! can’t wait to see what the community does now that there aren’t any limits on pro features! love you guys!

  67. I just want to say thanks. So, thanks! No, really. THANKS! This news just made me sillier than I already am, and I’m gonna giggle for the rest of the week ^_^

  68. Awesome news, I really appreciate your commitment, but why is there no Customizable Splash Screen in Personal? It’s one of the most annoying misses since Unity Free in 2009.
    I would have wished for you to not to give the profiler but do away with that.

  69. Incredible, you guys really think about us users and devs! I use Unity 5 since the start of the beta, and I can say it is a REAL improvement. There were prefabs in my project which consisted of around 60 middle-heavy gameobjects. Moving/rotating this combined prefab around in Unity 4 got the Editor to painful 1-3 fps. In Unity 5 it is moveable/rotatable just like a basic cube, no lag at all. And all that power for free from now on for all indies is quite the contribution to gaming, great one Unity!

  70. Video won’t play or download, and I missed the livestream. How can I watch that?

    1. Hi, we’re editing the livestream video atm, but you can see a rough version here: http://youtu.be/N8Ao5oyflik?t=55m15s

  71. » It comes with all the features including Profiler, Occlusion Culling, Render-to-Texture, and Post-Processing Special Effects….»

    I really cannot believe that you guy have opened up the platform to this extend.
    Thank you guys, thank you so much.

    Wait up, I am going to go to sleep now and wake up tomorrow morning and probably realise that Today was just a dream come true…

  72. Absolutely awesome, this will improve our development 1000 times more.

  73. Providing all game designers/developers with a game engine/editor as powerful as Unity 5 for free would have been unbelievable just a few years ago.

    Thanks to everybody at Unity for all your hard work in delivering Unity 5, and for making it available for free.

    Unity has been closing the gap with AAA engines over the last couple of years, in terms of features and rendering quality, but still has some crucially important advantages over them (in my opinion), including;

    -C sharp scripting,
    -Asset store (e.g. models, textures, animations, particles, music, sound effects),
    -Easy to use, extendable editor,
    -Multi-platform support (21 platforms and counting),
    -Mobile performance.

    The new Audio features look fantastic too!

    So thanks again to everyone at Unity, and roll on Unity 5.1! :0)

  74. I can only say congratulations for not only creating the most awesome game engine out there, but also being the most awesome company I’m aware of (at least when it comes to bigger companies).

    I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again and again: Unity FTW!!!

  75. Wow! Thanks, I can’t believe you really put all engine features into the personal Edition! I’m very thankful, and you made a great job still making Unity Pro attractive:) Greatest respect!

  76. Can we get demos and benchmarks for the html5 export? Not the plugin version

    1. You can get access to some of our WebGL benchmarks from this earlier blog post: http://blogs.unity3d.com/2014/10/07/benchmarking-unity-performance-in-webgl/

  77. Well done, i like that Unity listen to the community, many people were looking for making fully featured free version.

  78. Great work! really amazing

  79. Congratulations! I can’t wait to update Hunternet to the new engine :D

  80. So what happens to people who paid to upgrade their Unity Pro license but don’t need any of the new services? Can they get a refund and just go to the personal edition that now has all of the features that Pro used to have?

    1. Yes, you can get a refund. See the FAQ here: http://unity3d.com/unity/faq

  81. I think the battle lines are drawn now. UE4 is the powerhouse engine that needs a powerful computer. Unity is for indies to avoid royalties and get a larger userbase. Choices choices.

  82. Wonderful. Asset store publishers can finally fix all their bugs related to dark skin ;)

    1. +1 on this. Please fix so asset developers can make more attractive editors!

  83. Maravilloso!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  84. Still not 1/10th as good as UE4.

    1. Well you can exercise your right to use UE4 and not Unity!

      It’s a good time to be a developer when there are multiple fantastic free options out there.

  85. Very nice! Way to keep to your mission statement! I think I’ll keep my Pro subscription though (I need that dark skin, :P).
