Anyone have feedback on Unity game engine?

Hello folks,
It was great meeting the folks at the October meeting, well besides my friends car being broken into.

But my question is, I am planning on a game or two before I make an MMO, and plan on using Unity now instead of Hero Engine due to its community development and the engine's flexibility.

Have any of you used Unity, what did you think, any problems you ran into, what did you like about it?

Thanks for any feedback,
Jimmy

Hi Jimmy,
I'm new to Unity. I like it so far. It can be programmed via java or C++, I can import my models from 3ds max with animations. so that's the best part for me.

I've used the engine for multiple projects, and have many friends that have done the same. I would say it's the best option out there at the moment, in terms of multi-platform capable engines with workflows designed for small teams. It's absolutely the best option for mobile development.

UDK is the only thing that comes close to matching it, but I hit many limitations in its use. It is very clearly a codebase designed for FPSes, and has you jumping through very silly hoops (ie. stuff like implementing all inventory items as "weapons") if you want to make a different sort of game.

Hey Jimmy.

Im working with a team now using Unity

It seems to be a fine engine, I cant tell you much about writing code for it since im not a coder, but its really easy to get your models and animations imported.
Unity also has a great community and plenty of tutorials.

Have you upgraded or downloaded the Beta for Unity 4? Still has a few bugs to get ironed out, it is a release candidate, but improvements in the animation sector (sharing animations between skeletons) is probably one of the bigger things they implemented.
