Unity’s Editor UI does not support rendering elements in a grid. For some elements like Textures, Meshes and Materials rendering the results in a vertical list does not use the space of the LINQ for Unity editor view very effectively so a grid-based view could provide a much more concise and cleaner UI.
When working with the Unity editor it can be useful to animate the movement of a value from one place to the next.
Another VOD from the World of Zero Twitch development stream. This is a demo of some of the work that’s happened on the LINQ for Unity tool behind the scenes and also covers introducing command history so that we can track queries run against the tool and quickly rerun them.
LINQ for Unity is a new tool I’m building that allows you to run C# queries, typically LINQ, that you can then use to modify objects in your scenes easily.
Let’s explore a calculator that can solve a variety of equations dynamically. We’ll be able to use this solution to explore tree data structures and specifically the use of binary trees to represent and solve common math problems.
Continuing our elevator and asynchronous scene management system development let’s try to build a 3-scene system that will allow us to create a base scene with the global game objects (our player, scene transition elevator, camera etc) and the two “floors” we’ll be transitioning between.
Let’s create a quick string parsing script that can read a long string and return a delimited set of results (we’ll be finding words).
C# includes a feature that allows you to use the using keyword to define aliases for different types or namespaces in your code.
There are a lot of options available to you when you want to test your project in Unity3D and validate that your code actually does what you think it does.
I’ve been working on re-learning how to work with scenes in Unity and am planning a larger project around the feature, but wanted to bring all of you on my journey.
In this video we’re going to explore a way I approach reproducible pseudo-random number generation that uses calculated hashes to select a random item or property for an object.
A six degree of freedom (6DoF) system describes one where a player is able to freely move along the X, Y and Z axis as well as yaw, pitch and roll their rotation.
Unity provides a few operators that can make some common tasks with quaternions easier to accomplish. You can multiple a quaternion and vector to rotate the vector by the provided quaternion’s rotation or multiple two quaternions together in order to add the two rotations they represent together.
YAML (Yet Another Markup Language) provides a way to store structured data in files. It can be used in similar ways to other JSON or XML files and is commonly used with Kubernetes and Docker Compose.
Raycasts provide a way for you to project lines through your scenes and detect the objects they hit as well as return important information about what they hit.
I’ve recently been doing a lot of work on my website worldofzero.com in order to help launch the new version and improve the usability and accessibility of the site.
In C# Extension Methods provide a way to add additional functionality onto a type that you have created or imported into your project.
Lets explore building a self steering ship that can automatically move out of the way of obstacles in it’s path.
Top-Level Programs is a new feature being introduced in C# 9.0 that significantly simplifies certain C# programs and allows you to remove almost all of the boilerplate code from them.
Lets explore pathfinding by implementing Dijkstra’s Algorithm. Dijkstra’s Algorithm is a pathfinding algorithm that works by calculating the distance from any node in a graph to a target node.
