You’ll learn Unity C# scripting, the XR interaction toolkit, managing resource systems, prefabs and object instantiation, creating AI behavior, and syncing multiplayer.
Introduction to Unity, version control, and XR project development with a 360 video project.
You'll learn the basics of project creation, including storyboarding and how to plan out an application. Week 2 is when you learn to work in a team and delegate tasks while working in Unity.
Build your first VR app with the XR Interaction Toolkit - which allows you to grab and manipulate objects. Also, you'll learn VR locomotion, including teleportation and continuous movement. And cover inventory systems and prefabs, to allow you to carry resources around. Learn to make things happen with triggers and collision detection.
Dive into AI behaviors, including the ability to detect, follow, and interact with you. Learn to execute code over time with coroutines. Along with a deeper dive into lists, arrays, and inventory management.
Finish making the single player experience. Create complex resource interactions by combining knowledge of the Unity Physics engine and code callbacks.
Implement Multiplayer features in your VR app. Sync properties like health and position on AI and grabbable objects. Explore Unity’s Scene Management system to create several rooms for players to join.
Onboard new users to your app with a tutorial. Playtest your app, and share it online for people to try. Learn common troubleshooting techniques for debugging.
