Show Your Support For Unity3D Editor On Linux

By - | Views: 15,239
Not something I usually do, but this is a good cause, Unity is still missing having it's actual editor on Linux!

This item on their community feedback list needs votes from interested gamers and developers to show Unity there is demand for its editor on Linux.
It currently has 3,198 votes so it may have a way to go before being properly recognised, but it's a worthy cause.

Sadly it seems the vote has being going on since December 2010 and Unity have yet to act on it despite it being the number 1 item on their feedback page. Hopefully a big push on this can get them to recognise it as a priority.

After all we need more than just Leadwerks and C4 on Linux to keep competition going right?

Are there any other major game tools you know of that run on Linux you want us to highlight, share them in the comments! Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Voted! I've been using Unity 3.5 and 4.1 for the past 6 months. It definitely needs to run on Linux itself. It's a real pain for me to have to export my game in Windows, and then transfer it onto a drive that is neutral between OS's and then load into Ubuntu to test it (only to find that something's a little off!).

Quoting: PeterThere is also a petition running on change.org: https://www.change.org/petitions/unity-technologies-bring-the-unity-editor-to-linux
Pretty pointless when the one I've highlighted is actually on the developers website.

Post this on subreddit /r/linux_gaming so we can get extra votes. Also you could gain extra visitors to your website ;)

It is preferable if other people do this as I don't want to seem like a spammer ;)

I signed it a while ago. It's the highest rated vote on their site, but it's not even been considered since 2010. Maybe they'll surprise us, but I'm not holding my breath.

I tried running it through wine, but the objects disappear when I test the scene, something which others also have a problem with.

You can also bump up the following thread on their site.

Polycode looks like a promising open-source alternative, it needs more love.

It's worth highlighting that this is currently the most voted for item on feedback.unity3d.com by about 1,000 votes, and has been the highest voted item for some time (I first noticed it a couple of weeks ago).
