It holds your hand with Unity and covers everything in great detail. Unity Game Development in 24 Hours All the basics of Unity are covered in this comprehensive guide to the software. Sams Teach Yourself Unity Game Development in 24 Hours explains the Unity UI from start to finish including menus, workflows, and final production pipeline assets used in pro game studios. This book is really a guide to the Unity interface. Unity in Action: Multiplatform Game Development in C with Unity 5 If you want a real guide teaching practical tips for game development then you want this book.

Unity in Action covers both Unity and C programming with practical tutorials through each chapter.

I actually did a small review of this book and found it to be an excellent title for game developers. The author teaches the basics of Unity followed by common game programming topics like 3D space, game worlds, rendering, and animation. You should enter with some knowledge of C to have the best experience. But if you already have some programming knowledge in another language you can start with Unity in Action and still get a lot from the experience.

Just be prepared to do research and solve your own problems when necessary. The author explains concepts very well and Introduction to Game Design, Prototyping, and Development offers almost every subject you need to learn as a beginner. You start with game theory and what it takes to create a good video game. This leads into basic C programming concepts and eventually you learn how to construct eight individual games from scratch.

You should have at least some programming experience before picking up this book because it can be rather overwhelming.

Unity Manual

Learning C by Developing Games with Unity 5. This includes some updated sections with more clarity and new screenshots from the Unity UI. Even if you have zero programming experience you can still pick up this book and work through the lessons comfortably.

But the author Greg Lukosek teaches common best practices so this will set you on the right path for thinking properly about game development. Unity 5. The author Alan Thorn teaches components and game objects with the Unity interface.

You learn how to construct games from scratch including a shooter and a platformer. You learn Unity by example over a series of game projects and real-world scenarios.

The book covers game styles, input controls, and the details of C for game development. This may bother some people and they might want to go with a different Unity-oriented book with fewer required resources to start. Onscreen players, enemies, and NPCs all need their own AIs to behave in a way that makes the game fun and challenging.

Unity AI Game Programming is currently in its 2nd edition spanning pages in total. The authors even cover NavMesh as it relates to professional game programming.

This is not an easy book by any means. You will need prior experience in Unity and C , preferably experience put into actually making real games. The author Ashley Godbold put a lot of effort into both C and Unity explanations with detailed examples for each chapter. CaptureServerEvent "Player disconnected" ; spm.

ToString ; this. As the names indicate, they are used to start and stop the server. Looking at the body of the function, there is only one important line that we are interested in, and that is the following Network. The function InitializeServer starts up the server, taking the maximum number of clients allows as well as the port to listen to for incoming clients, and lastly a parameter indicating whether or not the server should use NAT punchthought to enable clients to connect with it.

In the stopServer function, the line Network. Disconnect stops the server. This provides a better representation of the GUI and also gives us more flexibility and also power on how to display the information we need. If the value is false it will start the server by calling the startServer function and set the appropriate display labels. If the value is true, it will stop the server by calling the stopserver function and also update the appropriate display labels.

The Network. Server — We are running as server. Client — We are running as client.

Unity User Manual ()

Connecting — We are attempting to connect to a server. The other functions are used to handle specific events on the network. The other two functions having to do with player connecting and disconnecting are of more interest to us at this point. This function will use the ServerPlayerManager class to spawn the newly connected player into the scene for us.

If you take a look at the Awake function, we are getting a component called ServerPlayerManager that is attached to the GameObject holding our scripts and assigning it to the spm variable which is of type ServerPlayerManager. Now you must be wondering what the ServerPlayerManager class is and does.

In short, the ServerPlayerManager class is responsible for: spawning the player into the scene; deleting the player from the scene and cleaning up everything related to it; handling the player input; Listing for ServerPlayerManager. Instantiate ply. RemoveRPCs go. Translate Vector3.

Rotate Vector3. The prefab is attached to yet another class called PlayerInfo. The whole purpose of the PlayerInfo class is to retain the prefab for our player at this point.

Eventually you can expand this class to hold more information and etc… First we get the PlayerInfo component from the GameObject that it is attached to, then we create a new GameObject that will hold the instance of the player over the network.

If you want to instantiate a GameObject over the network, you will need to usethe Network. Instantiate … function! We use a Hashtable to keep track of the players.

This is so that we can properly delete them and also the related RPCs for that particular player. When the player disconnects from the server, the deletePlayer NetworkPlayer player is called. We retrieve the player reference from our hashtable, and use the Network class to remove all RPC related stuff from the network and then finally destroy the object over the network and remove the entry from the hashtable. This is a RPC call.

Basically what happens here is that each client sends its position information to the server, and then the server transmits the information to all clients. This is also a RPC call. This function will give you the option to perform more commands, like firing cannon balls and etc…, in the future if needed.

Notice, that we use the hashtable to grab the particular player GameObject and apply the changes to that particular player. Creating the Game The next step is for us to create our scene or level that will be used for the demonstration purposes. As mentioned previously, the level design and the functionality of what you can do is going to be very simple.

Go ahead and create the following items in your scene: A plane GameObject. A Main Camera should already be present in your scene.

Your Hierarchy Window should look something like this after you are done with the steps above: Figure 2-Scene Hierarchy Server Side Save the scene under the Game folder you had created previously.

Call the scene Game. Next create Cube primitive, and attach the following components to the Cube GameObject: Network View component Rigid Body component This can be achieved by selecting the Cube GameObject, and using the Inspector Window, select Add Component and find the listed components that are needed.

Leave the default values for both the Rigid Body and Network View components as they are. Make a Prefab of the Cube by dragging it into the Game folder.

A prefab has been created. You can delete the Cube from your scene now. We will not be needing it anymore. If you recall from the previous section, we need another script to handle out PlayerInfo.

This script will be also placed in the Game folder. Go ahead and create a new C script and call it PlayerInfo. Listing for PlayerInfo. Your final environment should look something like this visually: Figure 3-Scene View At this point we have all of our Assets.

Now we need to configure them properly so that we get the results we are looking for. Notice, that when you attach the ServerNetworkManager script to the GameController, the ServerPlayerManager is also automatically attached, that is because in our ServerNetworkManager we have declared that the ServerNetworkManager requires the ServerPlayerManager by placing the following command before the class declaration: [RequireComponent typeof ServerPlayerManager ] One last configuration on the GameController would be to change the attributes of the Network View to the following: State Synchronization should be set to Off Observed should be set to None Almost forgot, there is one more last configuration that needs to be done.

Notice that the PlayerInfo component has a place holder for our player prefab. This is where our cube prefab is going to be attached, so go ahead and drag and drop the Cube prefab into the Player Info slot.

If all is done correctly, you can now actually test out the server code. Go ahead and run the program. You will see the following screen: Figure 4-Running Server Code As you can see our GUI states that the server is not running and it is displaying a button for us to start the server. Go ahead and click the Start Server button.

Figure 5-Screen after Server was Initialized Figure 6-Console displaying our Debug Messages As you can see we have started our server and it has been successfully initialized. Now we can turn our attention to our Client code. Creating the Client We are going to start a new project for the client.


Yes, I realized after a very long time that it is best to keep the server and the client code separated. It just makes life easier, and helps explanation also easier for starters. However, even though this is a new project, it will have to be the exact duplicate of the Server project. With a few differences. So the first thing we are going to do is create our directory structure. So go ahead and create the two folders: Client Game The Game folder is going to be exactly like the Game folder in the server project, so do yourself a favor and copy and paste the Game folder content from the server project into the client project Game folder.Your whole design and architecture will have to revolve around what kind of information is going to be broadcasted over the network.

The other two functions having to do with player connecting and disconnecting are of more interest to us at this point. Also if you get this book be sure to avoid the 1st edition because that version covers Unity 4. You should have at least some programming experience before picking up this book because it can be rather overwhelming.
