Unity3D — Creating a new Project

One day my projects will look like this.

If you’ve been following along, so far we have installed Unity on our system and created an online repository on GitHub in preparation for the following step: Creating our first project in Unity.

The process is even easier than the previous ones. The first thing to do is to launch UNITY HUB.
Once opened, you should see your Unity Editor installs. Now click on the PROJECTS menu on the left.

Next, click on NEW and Unity will use the latest version of the editor moving forward. Alternatively, we can select the dropdown menu next to the word NEW and select a different version of Unity to create our new project in.

Unity Hub will launch a secondary window where you can choose the type of project you wish to create. These are all essentially the same, but if you choose anything in particular, for example 2D, Unity will also install some useful packages that will facilitate the workflow for the specified type of project. In my case I just want to create a simple 3D empty project. You can assign your project name, and a location. It’s good to organize your files properly from the beginning.
Once you’re satisfied with your choices, you can simply click on CREATE.

Unity will now get to work in preparing the editor. Just give it a minute…

And DONE! our project is ready for whatever we might throw at it. Exciting, isn’t it?

The possibilities are endless.
