I work full time at a big software company, when I'm not doing that I'm developing games. I keep a development blog at www.byte56.com and you can follow me on twitter.

I've created a course with Lynda.com to teach advanced scripting with the Unity 3D engine, check it out! Have a 10-day free trial to Lynda.com to watch my course and many others

comment How to properly activate trigger objects?
Sure thing. Switching to coroutines now is a bit premature optimization. Just get your game made first, then see if you even need to optimize the updates.

comment How long is SystemInfo.deviceUniqueIdentifier?
@Lohoris As long as you have 128 bits of a hash, it's probably unique enough right? Think you'll need every character of the hash?

comment Sprite disappears after adding a material to it
This is pretty unclear. Tell us what you're expecting, more details on what's happening and what you've tried to do to fix it already.

This doesn't actually answer the questions you yourself asked. It's just a description of the results. It doesn't answer "Why" or your second question.

Sounds more like you should contact support.

Instead of "I'm having a problem, are there any tutorials that cover this subject" you should add additional details about the exact problem you're dealing with now and what you've done to try to solve it. It sounds like you should get more error logging to give you additional information.

comment Does the order in which RPCs are called match the order they are invoked locally?
It's true, the order is preserved from the send order. Luckily, I don't see a situation where you'd expect two different clients to send at the same time and expect the order to be preserved on a third client. It would be more reasonable to simply put a method locally that calls X();Y();Z(); instead of sending each as their own RPC.

comment Can I release the source code of a game created with the personal edition of Unity?
I'd have to read the license terms. I suggest you do that.

comment Why is my c# quadtree so slow when loaded without doing anything?
Profile the code, it's the best and fastest way to discover performance problems.

comment On the State of Unity3D with regard to Linux
This site is better suited for questions like "this is what I've tried to get Unity to work on Linux, this is how it's not working, how can I fix that?", instead of "has anyone gotten this working, if so how?". Be specific about the problem you're having so it. And keep in mind that game development might not be the best stack exchange to answer the question (since game developers don't know more about getting Windows software to work in Wine than other developers).
