For those of our students using Unity, you can download the software to practise your coding at home. The class tutor Ken Ward’s prepared a quick guide to doing this, as follows:
Using the thumbdrive
Open the thumb drive and navigate to \Installers\Unity.
- Run ‘UnitySetup64-2017.3.0f3.exe’ and follow the steps to install unity.
- Then run ‘UnityDocumentationSetup-2017.3.0f3.exe’
- Then run ‘UnityStandardAssetsSetup-2017.3.0f3.exe’
- Finally run ‘vs_community__1363948043.1516091709.exe’
Without using the thumbdrive
Alternatively, you can download and install from: https://unity3d.com/get-unity/download
Create an account
When using Unity for the first time you will need to create an account. Just use the personal/free licence as this is free for students.
Visual Studio will also ask you to make login or create a Microsoft account, but you can just skip this as an account is not required. When installing Visual Studio make use to select the Unity Tools Option and uncheck the option install Unity 2017.2.0f3 which will appear after selecting unity tools.
We hope this helps. If you’re having trouble with this process, get in touch (firstname.lastname@example.org) or ask Ken at a class, and he’ll be happy to help.
