As some of you have seen or maybe aware of the Unity Division, a free modular game engine that if enough love goes into it, can create a AAA title quality
it's been long planned by some to bring this into fruition and I'd very much like to see it as a public access to bring and draw newcomers in, but to do that, we need to offer hosting for Unity games
Much of the unity scene is very small and divided, there is a severe lack of communities for members to post their ideas, at best you have the Unity forums where they can get a single thread and it gets lost amongst all the other junk
I know a lot of the work needed needs to be agreed upon and the right members to set it up
some people are scared of changing things that are unapproved by their peers which forces things to slow down
there are several things that need to happen over the next few weeks, which in hind sight can be done in 48 hours, but we're revora...
so what needs to be done?
from the top, we'd need a drop down menu in the top banner for Unity with an icon, where it would sit
maybe between BFME and Petro
PNG LINK - Original Large
PNG ICON LINK + Alpha
also on the hosting services, if we're serious for hosting Unity games, we're going to have to make it clear that we offer at least project pages for Unity Developers
and lastly a revamp of the project forum in Unity, with major projects at the top where RR and others are while smaller projects in "other projects" and just general house keeping
why the sudden push?
well originally I thought Unity would not get any interest here, but I'm glad it picked up with RR, but we have to be honest, we are competing with Mod DB, while they would have a project page, their forums are a complete useless mess, and that would be our strength
if we can pick up and draw in people, give them something worth hosting their projects with, no matter how small, they will come.
as for me, I'm waiting for Unity to be setup so i bring it to the Public...
