I've just started learning to use unity by working through the tutorial projects but in both roll-a-ball and space shooter I've hit dead ends in the text lessons. The lessons tell you to simply add a GUI text object but they don't seen to exist anymore. From what I've gathered they have been replaced with UI text, but I can't find any documentation that explains how to use them in the way the tutorial describes.
Essentially my question is "how do I complete lesson 15 of the space shooter tutorial project now that unity doesn't let me create GUI text objects in the hierarchy?" Any help would be greatly appreciated.
