Download and install Unity (2017.4.15f1)

Unity is a game engine which is used all over the world.

The Prefab and Scene created with Unity can be uploaded to STYLY.

In this article, I will show how to install Unity step by step.

 

The version to install (For STYLY)

When you upload a Prefab or Scene to STYLY, the recommended Unity version is ‘Unity 2017.4.15f1 (64-bit)’. However, Unity 2017.4.x is generally compatible.

In the following, I use Unity 2017.4.15f1 to show how to install.

Select Unity components

Next, you are prompted to select Unity components to install as shown the following screenshot. You need to know which components to install, depending on your purpose.

 

Choose Unity Components-1

 

If you use the Prefabs and Scenes that are created with Unity, in STYLY, you need to install the following components.

 

Choose Unity Components-2

 

  • Windows Build Support (If you use Windows, it will be installed by default).
  • Mac Build Support (If you use Mac, it will be installed by default).
  • Android Build Support
  • WebGL Build Support
  • iOS Build Support

 

In this example, as I am using Windows, I checked ‘Mac Build Support’. If you use Mac, there is no ‘Mac Build Support’ component, so select ‘Windows Build Support’ instead.

Please refer to the following article to learn the details of the required environment to upload Prefabs and Scenes to STYLY.

 

 

Choose install location

Next, choose the install folder.

 

Install-Directory

 

If the other version of Unity has already been installed, the same install folder could be selected by default and could be overwritten. If you want to install multiple versions, you need to specify a diffrent folder.

And, if you use Unity Hub, the file path will be ‘(specified directory)/Editor/Unity.exe’. Let’s choose a directory easy to remember.

 

Once you chose the folder, the installation will be started. It will finish in a few minutes.
