I am quite new to unity and currenty I'm practicing with a 2D topdown game.

I created a tile map with "tiled", imported it in Unity with "TiledToUnity" and changed some things like player movement, camera and so on.

Now I wanted to create collectible coins. So I created a new 2D Sprite and added the picture of the coin I had to it. But the picture of the coin did not change. I tried the same with adding a material with the coin as picture but it did not work out either.

To check if the object is even there I added a collide box to the coin and my player body did indeed collide.

What did I do wrong while adding a picture to the sprite?

Thanks in advance!

(Sorry fotgot the pictures. ) -- Edit--

Added Emission yellow color where transparency should be.

  • \$\begingroup\$ hmm maybe coin is behind of the map! in Sprite Renderer there is option as order in layer , change it to bigger number than 1 like 2. \$\endgroup\$ Mar 23, 2017 at 13:31
  • \$\begingroup\$ Already tried that. I also created a new layer for the coins and hid the default layer with the map and player but i still did not see the material. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ I found something that might help. I changed the Emission of the material inside the obejct inspector and added the picture of the coin there. Now i see coin image, but the transparent part of it now has a yellow-ish color. Added pictured to my main post. \$\endgroup\$

After changing the Shader of the material to Sprite -> Default the problem was fixed.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Are you using lighting in your scene? If not, you might want to use a simpler shader than the PBR "Standard" - it will be more lightweight to render and won't require hacks like doubling-up a texture in the emissive channel. The default Sprite material should be all you need. \$\endgroup\$
