    Just want to Thank you Unity.

    I'm honestly completely blown away. As someone who has dreamed of creating video games since I was a pre-teen walking around with my graph paper creating pixel graphics and grand ideas, I sadly never took to it as a career goal. was a born salesman and entrepreneur. I've been self employed over 10 years in entertainment and sports.

    I've recently picked up a copy of Unity Game Development Essentials and am half way through the island building and while learning to use Unity I have been going through the Unity Asset store while reading through topics on the forum. I just read the Union section where Unity helps distribute finished Unity games to mass market and at only an 80/20 split, that's wildly impressive.

    I just wanted to say, Thank you Unity. Because of your amazing Engine, ease of learning curve and vast power of the system, not to mention the collaborative efforts and support of such a great community, I may just achieve my life long dream of creating games. If all goes well over the next year or two, I may even establish my own Game Dev Studio and I will have Unity to thank.

    Sincerely,
    EC

    Welcome aboard!
    If you are looking for next gen lighting, I have been building a lighting engine for Unity the past 6 months. It contains real time global illumination, and physically accurate area lights and works on all versions of unity. Check out the forum thread: http://forum.unity3d.com/threads/233...p-Area-Lights)

    Glad you like it. I had a similar feeling of awe when it "clicked". I have to correct you about union though, the chances for most people getting on it are slim to none, and it's designed for the exact OPPOSITE of the mass market, its designed for devices you can't normally have access to without a dedicated publisher like smart TV's maybe consoles, that sort of thing, with union being the publisher. Understandably, the quality bar will be high for it too.

    However, it is easy to distribute and sell your app, let us know when the time comes if you need advice - the forum is very helpful usually.

    Want an easy way to boot Linux from a USB drives on Mac? Like, you don't need to install or change a thing easy? I thought so. Try Mac Linux USB Loader!

    This is just great! Seriously though, you won't find a better online community, you won't find another engine with this much documentation and collaboration online.

    Heh, you made it sound as though thinking Unity was awesome is something that you grow out of after a few years.

    Not at all. I was saying I was in the OP's shoes a few years ago, realising with Unity my game development project dreams were now possible.
    Unity will always be awesome and close to my heart.
