Not Just For Coders

You don't need to be a coding wizard to get started. Daggerfall Tools for Unity comes with a powerful and easy-to-use interface. Tweak all major settings directly from the GUI to control how content is imported. When you're ready, just specify the resource you want and click the Import button. Simple!

Metadata and Customization

Your control does not end once content has been imported. Useful metadata is attached to imported GameObjects and serialized along with scene. You can also customize elements of your imported assets directly from the editor.

Enemy Import

Import mobile enemies with dungeons or add your own custom army. Each enemy is loaded with complete animations and has a script to handle sprite orientation based on player position. Bring your enemies to life with your preferred AI system.

Action Objects

Switches, moving platforms, and hinged doors are all imported and usable. A custom component tracks relationships between chained action records and you can play their animations from a single call.

Audio Import

Fully dynamic audio import at runtime or in editor. Includes a sound enumeration and fast preview feature. Audio can be automatically attached to dungeons and enemies when importing scenes.

Light Your Way

Import Daggerfall's lights as they are placed in-game. Attach a custom tag or script to have full control over your lighting.

Control The Climate

Change climate settings for any location using texture swaps. Supports all of Daggerfall's regions (Temperate, Desert, Mountain, Swamp), with options for Snow and Rain textures where available.

Climate Settings


Use Unity's own navmesh baking for small scenes, or implement a run-time navigation solution. There are several free and paid assets available for Unity which can handle fully dynamic navigation. Doors and other obstacles can be easily handled.


Weapon Loading

Sample FPS classes have the ability to load any weapon of any material (iron, ebony, Daedric, etc.). Use this as a starting point for your combat resolution.
