Download Tutorial Unity Multiplayer 2017 -Build Online Shooter – code included
In this course, Penny will take you from the very basics of creating a simple client/server game environment using Unity’s UNET system right through to creating and managing a lobby system. The topics covered are the ones that most frequently appear on the forums and that many people struggle in understanding. The course is practical with many step-by-step exercises. Students of this course will learn about the UNET Network Manager and how to use message sending to synchronise rigid body movement and animation of player characters. Overriding the Network Manager will also be covered to allow developers to create customised network functionality such as changing player characters while playing, shooting projectiles and managing player characteristics such as health.
Topics covered include:
- network configurations
- IP addresses
- remote procedure calls
- syncing rigidbody movement
- syncing animation states
- playing with different player-characters
- changing player-characters while connected
- setting up the Unity Lobby asset
- syncing variable values across scenes
- setting up Unity Match Making services
Developed in Unity 5, this course remains relevant for versions 2017, 2018 and beyond with Unity’s Networking API which has remained constant over the years.
