4 months and well over 60 awesome reviews (thank you! <3) after launch, we're ready with the biggest-ever update for Odin!
And to make things even better, Odin was selected to be part of the Unity Back to School Sale, meaning that Odin is now cheaper than it'll ever be, at only $21!
Glad you should ask!
First of all, you can now finally say goodbye to GeneratedOdinEditors.dll.
The genius developers at Sirenix found a DLL-free way to make Unity draw Odin's inspectors without having to declare editor types with CustomEditor attributes on them.
This means no more recompilation whenever you change your types, and that Odin can instantly upddate which types it draws at runtime without any reloads!
Persistent Editor States that work when Unity reloads and even after it has been shut down and restarted!
Dictionary Key Type Support meaning dictionaries can now have keys of any type except on prefab instances.
Editor-Only Mode, which allows you to completely turn off the Odin Serialization system with the click of a button.
In fact, you can read about the two dimensional arrays and list tables, AOT support, a bunch of new attributes, and a lot of fixes!
You can read more about these in Sirenix's nice release notes.
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.
