Multiply a texture by a color in your unlit shader with 3 simple lines!— Harry 💬 (@HarryAlisavakis) February 5, 2019

fixed4 col = tex2D(_MainTex, i.uv) * _Color;

Heya friends, have you updated Burst recently? The burst inspector has a super neat new feature - if you tick the 'Enhanced Disassembly' checkbox it annotates the Assembly view with line numbers and filenames so you can see how your job code matches! #UnityTips pic.twitter.com/U2uB8PI3YN— Lotte 'just an idiot' May 💖🍓🌈🐹🎮☕🍫🍩 (@LotteMakesStuff) February 6, 2019

Prior to Devdog, I ran an online games industry news media for and about Nordic game developers for nearly two years.
During that time, I often reached out to new game developers directly, apart from interviewing the ones who sent a press release directly to me.
A few weeks ago, we bought a Unity Asset that really let us down.
In developing our own assets, we spend a lot of time on the Asset Store, researching the market and getting inspired.
Item Collections in Inventory Pro are powerful collections that can contain items, stack, unstack, merge items and much, much more.
As we'll soon see, however, these features aren't only useful when creating a traditional RPG inventory system, but can be used in many aspects of your game.
We're a developer and publisher of best-in-class tools and asset for the Unity game engine. We develop and sell but also publish products like Odin for talented developers and artists around the world.
