#UnityTips Tuesday! You might know the "F" key focuses the Scene view on the selected GameObject, but did you know Shift + F locks it to moving GameObjects? Useful for watching characters elsewhere in your level! More navigation tips in the docs here: https://t.co/IyJ2QVuWTO pic.twitter.com/Z9P8YOruye— UnityDocs (@UnityDocs) April 30, 2019

#UnityTips If using baked lighting and dynamic doors, make a copy of your door, set it to static and shadows only, and light won't bleed between rooms.

To swap a prefab (or any game object) for another prefab, hold down the ALT key and drag prefab onto existing prefab in the hierarchy.
To save transform just put your prefab into the hierarchy's object and then delete the parent object.#indiedev #gamedev #unity pic.twitter.com/QF8H9xrrhh
Today's post will be about #unitytips, I use ctrl+shift shortcut quite a lot when designing a level, it enables auto snapping of a dragged object to other objects and terrain, it save a lot of time previously spent on a placement.#gamedev #indiedev pic.twitter.com/L3zyFRpxvb— The Serpent Rogue (@TheSerpentRogue) May 1, 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.
