|Unity (fmr. Unity 3D?)|

There is actually a GNU/Linux version of Unity available, but it can be a little hidden! They only officially support Ubuntu, but . You also have the option of using it in WINE (via Play On WINE is easier).
- Unity on Linux: Release Notes and Known Issues - latest builds at the bottom of the thread.
- unity-editor and unity-editor-beta in the Arch User Repository.
Note that when installing through the AUR I had to use a different temporary folder as it wasn't large enough:
yaourt -S unity-editor --tmp /home/USERNAME/tmp
(need to find how to do this with pacaur)
I also did it on a drive I shared with Windows once (FAT32) but then I had to set a bunch of permissions after it was installed which was a bit annoying! You need quite a bit of free space to do all the downloading and building, maybe ~10GB+
Add-ons and things for adding more features to Unity.
Asset store things
- Primitives - There are a bunch of primitive sets on the asset shop, but of the two I've tried this seemed to work the best.
- World Physics System Simulates multiple gravity points, good for space games where planets effect your movement. I can confirm it still works in Unity 5.
- NumberFlow - Procedural texture generation.
- Simple Geometry Painter Some .CS scripts that add nice 3-D object drawing tools to Unity.
