The virtual goods component is added to any item you upload; both for items that you are marking for sale, which will appear in the store, and items you are only uploading for your own use, including your own regions.


The virtual good component has been broken down into sub-categories, making it easier for you to fill in the necessary information.


Basic

Here you can find the Content Type, Item category and Content rating.


Content Type is where you will choose the category for the content, for example, you will need to choose the Clothing content type if you have made an item of clothing.


Item Category is used to place the item in the right item category. For example, if you have chosen the content type as Clothing, and you have made a jacket, you will need to pick the Item Category as Clothes>Tops>Jackets.


Content Rating is the rating of the item. There are five ratings to choose from; Everyone, Teen, Mature, Adult, Explicit.


The Grid option allows you to set the item to a specific grid. It can only be accessed on this grid and restricted from all other grids. Leave this at 0 to have the item available everywhere, are enter the Grid ID if you wish to only allow the item in a specific grid.


Description

This is where you can add the description, brand and also add a translation for the description.


The Primary Description is where you will choose the language of your description, add a name and add a description of the item you are uploading. You will also need to add in your brand name.


Optional Fields include adding instructions on how to use your item and also has an option to add release notes if you want to.


Translated Descriptions allows you to add a translation for your item name, description, instructions and release notes. To add a new translation, click on the ‘Add New Translation’ button. You will see a Language subheader with a drop-down menu next to it. You can pick from the list of languages we have included in our Editor Pack. You can add multiple translations. You will need to add the translation in yourself.


Pricing

Here is where you can set the price of your item and set limits on promotions.


Pricing has an option set the item ‘Not for Sale’, so if you make an item, but just want to keep it in your inventory for personal use, you can check the ‘Not for Sale’ box.


Price Gold is where you set the price of the item in Gold. Gold is a premium currency.


Price Silver is where you set the price of the item in Silver. Silver is the base currency in Sinespace.


Promotions is where you can allow your item to be used in promotions. If you want your item to be used, check the ‘Allow use in Promotions’ box. You can also set the maximum discount amount in sales; The range is from 0 to 100% off. Your item will only be sold in sales if you check the Allow Use in Promotions box.


Icons

Icons is where you can add the item store icon, inventory icon, and your brand icon.


Image Store Icon is the icon used for the item in the sinespace store. You can take pictures of the item outside of Unity and add it here by copying it into your Project window, or you can auto-generate this by clicking on the 'Take Screenshots' button. This will auto-generate the inventory icon as well. Once you have clicked on the ‘Take Screenshots’ button, it might take a bit of time for the images to show up in Icons.


The brand icon is the image you use for your brand. This can also be copied from the Upload Settings in Unity.


To add your brand information to the Upload Settings, click on Space at the top of Unity and then click on Upload Settings. Under Defaults, you can add the Brand Name, add a Brand Icon, add a Copyright Label, and add a Default Inventory Icon.


If you have added all of these, you can then go back to the Icons tab by clicking on your item prefab in the Project.


Click on the Copy button under the Brand Icon heading to copy all of the brand information from the Upload Settings.


You can also add the Brand Icon manually by adding the image to the Project window. You can do this by clicking on Assets at the top of Unity and then click on ‘Add New Asset’. The image will automatically be placed in your Project. You can then drag it from here into the Brand Icon image box. The Brand image must be 140x60px and a .PNG file.


Copyright

Creator information is where you put the Developer Name and Copyright. The Developer Name is either the business name or your individual name. For the copyright, add your name or business name after the copyright 2017.

In the new Editor pack you can also add the copyright information to the Upload settings, so the copyright info can be copied to other components.



Upload

Upload is where you add the information for uploading your item.

Status shows whether or not you have already uploaded your item to Curator.


Resume Existing Item allows you to add a resume ID, so if you are re-uploading an item, you can put its’ resume ID here, and it will overwrite the old version. You can find the resume ID of any item by either going to curator.sine.space and finding your item, or, you can find it by clicking on Space at the top of Unity, and click on Items and Status. This will bring up a list of all of the items you have uploaded to Curator, along with their ID on the left-hand side.


Upload Content has two options for uploading. You can either click on Export Package to manually export your item as a unity package to a selected folder on your PC, or you can click on Automatic Submission to upload and submit your item to Curator.


Once your item is on Curator, it will be reviewed by our team. If it is successful, the item will go live in sinespace.
