Criteria for Official Support

If you want a package to be officially supported, we will judge it on the following criteria.

  • Is this useful to a wide number of users?
  • How much does it cost, is it free? (Preference given to free extensions if there is two competing solutions)
  • How well supported is it? (how long ago did it come out, how often does it get updates for major breaking version changes?)
  • Does it require consuming limited resources to support (e.g. Shader keywords, etc.)
  • How much does it add to the player file filesizes?

If you want a package supported - please let us know with a link for it, and what your use case is and we'll look into adding official support.
