Quick Note for New Developers

Compatible Unity Versions

For production work the Stable Version of the Unity Editor is 2017.4 - we recommend using versions between 2017.2-2017.4 for maximum compatibility.

Unity 2018.1 and 2018.2 support is available in Editor Pack version 14 onwards, and is generally robust. Unity 2018.3 support is also available in Editor Pack 14, but is considered experimental, and bug reports are appreciated.

Importing Existing Content

We strongly advise importing the Sinespace Editor Pack into a blank project. Existing assets may incorporate incompatibilities in dependent assets, such as Unity's Post Stack V2 (which we bundle the Sinespace compatible version in our package, ditto Cinemachine.) which can cause conflicts. To import existing content, we recommend creating a blank project, and copy the assets into the new project, if you encounter incompatibilities please let us know!

Step 3.Download and install the Space Editor Pack

The Space Editor Pack is an add-on for Unity which allows you to upload your content to Sinespace and contains all of the necessary components you will need for various content. You can find the Editor Pack versions on our Editor Pack page.

Once downloaded, open Unity.

In the top menu of Unity, click Assets / Import package / Custom package.


Select the Editor pack you have downloaded from the link from above. 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.


Step 5.Sign in to space in your Unity project

In the top menu, click Sinespace -> Sign in...

Then in the Inspector window on the right log in with the username and password you created at (above). You might have to switch from the Services window to the Inspector window.


Add your real name, a business name if you have one, review and accept the EULA for content creators.

End User License Agreement

Accepting the EULA will allow you to access the creator server. Until you complete this step you will only have access to the live server.

Step 6. Upload a sandbox region

Follow the video tutorial on how to set up a basic region to use as a sandbox region.

Congratulations! You are now ready to create and upload content to the Space virtual world!
