Day 97: Game Assets via Filebase
Objective: Get Player character from the Filebase system.
GameDevHq has a library of ready made assets for Unity. To use all of the assets one will have to buy the 1-year subscription. The link provided will explain how much it cost. https://filebase.gamedevhq.com/
Once you download the file, you will need to drag it into your project and import it.
Next will be to go to the top of your Unity screen and click on Filebase.
When you click Filebase, click open. A bigger window will open up and we are now in the Filebase and can search for assets.
For this article we will be looking up and grabbing a 3D character model. At the top click on All Assets and under 3D click Characters.
You will see a lot of character models to pick from. You can slim down the results more by clicking on the category that you would like.
I have found a Astronaut model that I want to use, all that needs to be done is click on it and click download. If you have not signed in yet, it will as you to login and then click download again.
After it finished downloading, a Import window will open and you can select what you want to import to the project. We need everything for this model so all we will do is click import.
Now we can drag in the model to the screen.
Notice how the model looks pink in the screen? We need to upgrade the material to use URP. To do that we will refer back to yesterday’s article.
We have downloaded a model from Filebase and added it into the scene!
Thank you for reading and have a wonderful day!!
