Unity missing custom initializers

One of the things I miss the most coming from Objective-C to Unity is the lack of custom initializers. Luckily-ish there is a way to kind of do this:   public class Meow() { public int x     public string name } new Meow{x = 10, name = “cat”}

JSONFX and Unity

Hey all. It’s been fucking ages since my last post, but maybe this time I’ll be able to keep this sucker going. But to hell with excuses and whatnot. On to the point! Recently I have been working with unity to build some games at work and decided to take a crack at a 2d […]
