The One About Unity Sites.
Unity is AMAZING. If you don’t love it, you haven’t used it! www.unity3d.com The implications for where this can take architectural representation is absolutely brilliant, and really, i am only beginning to wrap my head around some of the potential (AI design guide for community participation in master planning!). While the site tools in Unity unlock your imagination as an artist, they don’t really help create a site based off of a specific location with given parameters. So, mashups ensue. This first tutorial will cover grabbing topo data in SketchUp, pushing it to Unity, and getting things ready for the import of a building.
The next version of Unity will be out soon…more to come on this one!
