Last year, we featured 6 kickass Unity assets with the power to bring your project to the next level. Since we’re giving away five $100 Unity/Unreal asset credits as part of our 2016 developer survey, we thought we’d share some more cool stuff you can buy with cold hard virtual cash. From a community-created Leap Motion UI design asset, to the awe-inspiring glow effect in Blocks, here are 6 more jaw-dropping Unity assets for your next Orion project.
Recently updated for Orion, Custom Pointer lets you turn any Transform or Leap Motion finger into a pointer that can interact with the UI. It also includes classes that work specifically with our Unity core assets – both V2 and Orion.
This one has a special place in our hearts, as it’s the only Unity Store asset that we used while building Blocks. It plays a big part in giving the blocks their ethereal glow.
Using PhysicsRecorder, you can rapidly capture and record the transform values of GameObjects, allowing you to create static animations from real-time physics. This increases performance by baking your physics to animation clips.
From prototyping quick levels to building advanced geometry, ProBuilder Advanced overcomes a lot of creative barriers in bringing your vision to life.
Alternatively, Pro-Core’s ProGrids ($20) gives you a visual functional grid, which snaps on all 3 axes, so that objects always snap to the grid. This makes level-building faster and more precise as everything pops into place.
This solid inverse kinematics solution was in beta for a year and a half before its full release in January. If you’re looking to create a hand-driven avatar, this is the plugin for you.
Sometimes the best assets are the ones that the user never sees. Squiggle is a general tool that visualizes the way values change over time, which really helps with debugging.
