  • Hi, Justin

    Some time back, you had asked me to PM you and answer two questions. I didn't reply right away because I didn't have the answers yet. Sorry about that!

    Question one was how my editor markers project was going. Life got really complicated shortly after Unite LA last year. As you know, I don't (yet) do Unity as my "day job", and what happened is that our company needed to move our primary data center twice, for different reasons, only three months apart. Since I'm in charge of the IT department, my work life got really crazy. I had one period in which I worked 27 consecutive days, averaging 10+ hours/day, without a single day off. Ugh. The bottom line is, I was forced away from Unity for a while and decided to park the editor markers project, even though the code was done, without submitting it to the Asset Store, so that I would not have to worry about customer support until this data center stuff was off my plate.

    Out of characters...will continue in a new field...

      Thankfully, the new data center is working out well. It's also 15 minutes from where I live, instead of 7 hours, so fixing things when they break or doing strategic upgrades is much easier!

      I'm back into Unity now. I've brought the editor marker project up to Unity 2017.1 compatibility and will shortly test with 2017.2 beta -- it was exciting to have *zero* code changes between 5.4.x and 2017.1!

      Mike Geig, a Unity engineer, made me aware of a Unity quirk that had a potential negative performance impact, and I reworked one of my scripts to avoid that. Other than that, the code is solid, and I've tested the living hell out of it. Documentation is done except for proofreading. My main holdup right now is figuring out what I want to do about a web site. I have my own domain, but I'm an infrastructure and database guy, and I stink at page design. That's on my plate to work on this week. I have every expectation of this being a shipping product prior to Unite Austin in October.

      Speaking of which, the other question you asked is whether or not I would be there. I didn't know at that time, but now I do. Yes, I'll be attending, and I look forward to seeing what you folks have been up to. UFPS2 is looking great so far, monumental undertaking that it is.

      Regards,
      Scott

      P.S. -- Thanks for the feedback you offered on the markers at Unite LA. I've incorporated all of your suggestions since then.
