  • Thank you so much for your hard work, Chris! Also glad to see graphic options template.

  • Thank you very much! I have a question: is there going to be a new integration with the Opsive UCC newest, 2.2 version which was recently released?

  • @hollycacao If necessary. Are you encountering issues with it?

  • I did not buy 2.2 yet and I was wondering if I should, because right now my work flow contains Adventure Creator with UCC.

  • Forgive me if I'm not following, but I was under the impression that 2.2 was released 2 years ago:

    Are you referring to a different asset?

  • Sorry, my bad. I talk about version 3.

  • No problem. It's too early to say right now, as I'm not sure how much v3 affects existing projects. I will look into it, however.

  • Thank you Chris for UCC v3 update!!! (and also articy:draft integration) YOU ARE THE BEST!

  • Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere, but is there a corresponding recommended version of Unity to be used with each AC version, or simply use the latest stable version of Unity?

  • Welcome to the community, @bill_renk.

    I'd always recommend using the latest LTS version of Unity - both when using and not using AC as well.

    However, if you find an issue between AC a particular version of Unity (including betas), by all means let me know.
