Unity Hands On
Getting to Know the Unity3D Development Environment
Step 1. To begin, download Unity by visiting http://unity3D.com/
and clicking on Download . Unity has a free version that lacks some
functionality, but never expires. The free version is still quite powerful
and is certainly enough for the first-time game developer. Once you
have downloaded the software, follow the installation instructions to
get Unity up and running.
Step 2. Running Unity for the first time reveals the multiwindowed
editing environment shown in Figure 1.19 . The tabs and windows
can be dragged around to suit your own preferences.
