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, we 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.
* As of 2020/04/14, Unity recommended version of STYLY is Unity 2019.3.6f1.
The following article details how to install Unity 2019.3.6f1.
In the following tutorial, I explain how to install Unity 2017.4.15f1.
Download the Installer
Access the official site from the following link.
Unity Version 2017.4.15f1 was released on 12 November 2018.
In the download page, you can filter the versions by ‘2017.4’ (It is the fifth from the top in page 2).
Please download Window version or Mac version according to your PC environment.
Start Installing Unity 2017.4.15f1
Launch the downloaded installer (UnityDownloadAssistant-2017.4.15f1.exe). The window below will pop up. Follow the prompts in the window.
Accept the license agreement.
Select Unity Components
Next, you are prompted to select Unity components to install as shown in the following screenshot. You need to know which components to install, depending on your purpose.
If you use a Prefab or Scene created with Unity on STYLY, you need to install the following components.
- 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, we are using Windows. Check ‘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 more about the required environment to upload Prefabs and Scenes to STYLY.
Choose Install Location
Next, choose the install folder.
If there is another version of Unity already installed on your PC, then the same install folder could be selected by default and could be overwritten. If you want to install multiple versions, you need to select a different folder.
And, if you use Unity Hub, the file path will be ‘(specified directory)/Editor/Unity.exe’. Choose a directory that is easy to remember.
Once you choose the folder, the installation will start. It will finish in a few minutes.
You will receive a message once Unity is finished installing. Select ‘Finish’ after receiving this message. Unity is now installed on your PC!
