tl;dr: We updated our Sci-Fi UI asset to work stand-alone, thus not requiring Inventory Pro to work anymore. You can find it here.
Our Sci-Fi UI design has always been a special asset for us. It saw its light of day based on massive feedback from Inventory Pro customers, requesting us to make a UI design or theme for Inventory Pro.
A UI design for uGUI (Unity UI) wasn't something we had done before, so initially we built it on-top of Inventory Pro. This meant you had to have both Inventory Pro and Sci-Fi UI in order to use the design in your game.
And the feedback was amazing! Those of you who bought the Sci-Fi UI design (and there are over 150 of you!) really proved that listening to the customers is a great idea.
But we wanted to provide the assset to people without Inventory Pro too. Therefore, when we started receiving requests for a stand-alone version of the Sci-Fi UI, we knew exactly what we had to do.
So a few months ago, we went back to the garage to see how it could be done.
And that's where we are today. The new version of the Sci-Fi UI asset now works without the need of Inventory Pro (hooray!).
Thanks for the support, keep the feedback coming, and enjoy the Sci-Fi UI - now without the need of Inventory Pro.
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.
