Lighting the Battle Arenas Part 3

When lighting the battle arenas for the electro scene, I found that the main issue I encountered was making the focal point the playable area, while giving a more complex, saturated, lighting theme than many of the others. This was due to the outer walls of the arena being the same level as the playable area and the theme set. To overcome this we eventually darkened the outer walls of the arena and used a very warm aggressive light in the centre. This ensured that although the rim lights were still very saturated, due to them being a much cooler colour, the playable area was still the focal point.

The hydro arena was one of the more simple arenas to light, as this had a lot more colours in the textures, and to then not overcomplicate the scene, I stayed with simple lights. We had tried for a submarine … esk theme, but felt that the colours didn’t blend with the blues of the arena and therefore left it.

When Lighting the ice arena, my main focus was as few shadows as possible, and a very cold vibe. This was one of the few exceptions where a warm light was not used in the playable area. But to ensure the focal point was still in that area, I ensured that it was the lightest and also most saturated point in the level.

I always get a "There should be a "yourgamename_Data" folder next to the executable" error with most Unity games. I checked there is a folder named like that where it should be, and im pretty confused. Any help?

Whoever is responsible for maintaining this engine listing, could you please update the platforms supported to include the Wii U? I am a Wii U developer using Unity and need to be able to list my games with the correct game engine.

Unity is great for lower end machines and people who don't want all the shine of next generation. I just wish I didn't need to purchase the engine for $1500 to get the features I need for my kind of game, I can spend that much on a computer that will give me the power needed. I think I will stick with Unreal Engine 4 and get all of the things I need for $19 per month as opposed to $75 per month and once you cancel you lose all of the pro features. I can cancel my UE4 sub and still be able to use everything.

My favorite engine to design on. Very easy to make levels that look good and comes with lots of great assets and scripts if you aren't programming inclined.
The community is also amazing, you can find help for just about anything.
I recommend to anyone wanting to get into making games or level designing.

I love Unity3D...
It is by far the greatest Engine around for a normal computer you buy at the store today, you don't need a Quad Core processor or a 100 gig graphics card like you need for Unreal Engine.

I recommend Unity to any new developer or hobbyist.
It takes a lot of learning.

But nothing worth it is easy to accomplish.
But the tutorials and training materials are out there
for anyone willing to LEARN.

The advantages of Unity are: +You can build for nearly all major plattforms +Easy to learn +Great assets pipeline, which supports most 3D packages +Great and helpful community and hundreds of useful tutorials +Good documentation +A big fund as backbone. So this engine will be further developed and getting better +one of the most optimized mobile engines So why I give only 7 out of 10? Well, Unity has unfortunately some really weak points: -Basic version is free. But if you serious about game development…
