Please either follow the steps on this page to get started, or if you would prefer, this video will guide you through set up.

Step 1.Register a user account

Our main website is: http://developer.space/

To become a Space creator you need to create an account at http://sine.space/signup/creator

Make sure to use your real email as you will need to verify the email address (sometimes the verification link goes to spam).

Step 2.Install Unity Editor

See Unity Installation for the current version and installation walkthrough. Please note: we use a specific version (or range of versions) of the Unity editor, see the Unity Installation page for more details. Other versions may not work.

Note for Mac/Linux Users

You also need to have Mono installed on OSX for the editor pack to work.

For OSX that is available here: mono-project.com/download

Step 3.Install the Space Editor Pack

Open Unity and on the pop up window create a new Unity project. Usually the best thing to do is name each project the same as the editor pack so you don't get confused!

Select the Editor pack you have downloaded from the link from Download Editor Pack. This will usually be in your PC's Downloads folder.

It will take a few minutes to unpack all the assets. When the Import Unity Package window pops up, click on 'All' at the bottom of the window, then click on 'Import'.


Note: Do not install the standard asset package as space package already has it.


Step 4.Enable Editor Pack Settings

With the editor pack now installed, you will see a new button called 'space' in the top menu.

click on Space / Install Editor Pack Settings to enable the editor pack settings.
