Unity是一款跨平台的游戏开发工具，从一开始就被设计成易于使用的产品。作为一个完全集成的专业级应用，Unity还包含了价值数百万美元的功能强大的游戏引擎。Unity 4作为一个游戏开发工具，它的设计主旨就是让你能够创建令人惊讶的游戏。如果你之前尝试过Unity，请查看Unity 3都做了哪些更新。如果你是第一次尝试，那就好好看看吧，看Unity都能为你带来什么。Unity作为一种开发环境，可让你脱离传统的游戏开发方式，以一种更简单的方式专注于你的游戏开发。开发网络游戏、移动游戏、单机游戏，Unity都能完全胜任。
Update your Unity programming skills to take advantage of the new Data Orientated Technology Stack and Burst Compiler
What you’ll learn
Take existing Unity projects created without the use of DOTs and convert them to employ parallel processing and the entity component system.
Students should have a strong working understanding of the Unity game engine.
Students should be proficient in C#
Unity’s new Data-Oriented Technology Stack (DOTS) and Entity Component System (ECS) programming paradigm have been developed to optimize game development and open up new ways of accessing memory and parallel processing for developing high-performance C# code that takes advantage of contemporary multicore computers. Through the use of the Burst Compiler, your game programs become native code, able to run faster on multiple threads thus pushing the boundaries of the size of your virtual environments and the simultaneous processing of tens of thousands of game objects.
In this course, Penny demystifies Unity’s new DOTS architecture and introduces intermediate Unity users to ECS by upgrading classic Unity projects and developing a multitude of examples of the use of DOTS concentrating on the most popular game mechanics. Using her internationally acclaimed teaching style and knowledge from over 25 years working with games, graphics and having written two award-winning books on games AI, Penny will take you from familiar object-oriented programming and upgrade your skill to the more memory efficient and optimized entity component architecture. Throughout, you will follow along with hands-on workshops designed to take you through every step of becoming familiar with ECS. You will build on numerous scenarios that examine the basics of ECS programming through the new DOTS-specific math and physics libraries.
While DOTS is still in preview, this course aims to assist you in understanding how it works and how games are constructed with it. The knowledge you obtain will further your ability to decipher future released Unity ECS tech demos and handle API updates.
This course requires Unity 2019.3.0f6. and the Hybrid Renderer Package 0.3.3.
