So, I've been a busy boy. I watched quite a few Unity3d videos and actually found some that are such great resources that I thought I'd post more links with an update on my cube controller project. First links:
Upon further investigation, I found the http://learnmesilly.com/ link to be totally schweet and ahsum. It's got like 3+ hours of Unity3d high quality video tutorials with different lessons and multiple parts to the lessons which approach Unity3d from the ground up. It even starts goes into making objects in external programs and importing them into Unity3d. Seriously:
After all the research into Unity3d was done, this way determined to be the best introductory links by far. I would please ask that this series of 7 videos each between 3 to 8 minutes long, be watched. All 7 videos are accessible through this person's Vimeo account. Every video is solid gold.
Specifically, the Vimeo-account-link very quickly sets up cubes and shows how to manipulate them in a simple way by adding transformation along axes or pushing forces in directions using the internal physics engine.
I am wondering if the group would like a simple explanation of all of the components of Unity3d and how they work?
