it is really frustrating that half the article was posted and i cannot view the end of this article, every possible link on the page refers to the same url and that url is password protected. creation of a gametextures account will not get you access to the end of this page so don't hand them paypal info like I did just go blunder off through a youtube tutorial rather than this good-old-boy referral page

Unity Technologies created Unity engine — one of the most popular game-creation tools in the industry. The Unity engine is far and away the dominant global game development software. More games are made with Unity than with any other game technology. More players play games made with Unity, and more developers rely on our tools and services to drive their business.

UNITY PRO

Unity Pro combines Unity’s famous ease-of-use with the full set of powerful, high-end features that professional 3D developers and leading studios require. Create bigger, more complex and visually stunning games and 3D content for the Web, desktop, Windows Store Apps and Windows Phone 8 and BlackBerry, without compromising on productivity. If you want to create a game and ship it, choose Unity Pro today!

Supported platforms

pic_50pic_50 (2)

System requirements

  • Windows: XP SP2 or later; Mac OS X: Intel CPU & “Snow Leopard” 10.6 or later. Note that Unity was not tested on server versions of Windows and OS X.
  • Graphics card with DirectX 9 level (shader model 2.0) capabilities. Any card made since 2004 should work.
  • Using Occlusion Culling requires GPU with Occlusion Query support (some Intel GPUs do not support that).
