Unity is most often used to build games (duh!), but it is actually super versatile for use in non-game settings! This group is

Hey guys, I've been gone for a little while, just getting back into the community.
One of my clients works on agriculture type projects. They specifically work on simulations.
Here's a project I worked on in the past. Its a few years old but I thought it was still relevant as I still do this type of work for them today.
Check out the vid if you're interested, you can plug in a controller and drive it. neat!

That's super cool! I like the idea of using Unity to let people experience simulations of real world objects within a game environment. I've been developing small games out of 3D models that artists draw in Google Tilt Brush so that my local art gallery can present them online. People at home can explore the art piece with WASD and mouse without really connecting the dots that their technically playing a game.

I'll start the group off with my non-game experience that I'm building in Unity!

It's a mobile app, called SoundWalk, that allows composers to map sound experiences to GPS locations around the globe, allowing an audience to interact with these compositions by walking through the composed public spaces using their phones. This isn’t just an app, it’s a process that aims to create thought provoking and socially impactful experiences that utilize sound and physical locations as an artistic medium.

Mark PoeppelmeierNice Kurt! What are you using for your location service?
I wanted to start from the basics since I'm a bit of a coding newbie. :P

Mark PoeppelmeierNice Kurt! What are you using for your location service?
I'm currently using the LocationService class within UnityEngine to read where the user is located. I had to write a scaling function so that the movement of the user can be better translated into Unity world movement.

Hello everyone! I am an indie developer, and my first experience developing with Unity was a sort of a catalog project for a furniture company (you can also sort of check it out in my Connect profile), and currently, in addition to work on my first game, I am also revamping and updating this app for my client. And I have an upcoming project that is (I think) very cool and is also NOT a game - can't talk about it yet, but as soon as I can, I will share here.

Let's share things!

100 Members! One of you should totally share a non-game thing that you've made with Unity!

Wow! We're up to 79 users! Post some more about your current or past Non-Game developments in Unity! I'm still plugging away at my SoundWalk AR spatial sound app using Unity!

I am interested in combining real world and game simulation to provide a mixture of utility and enjoyment; giving the ability for use as a tool but also for fun learning and exploration. I am imterested in learning more about non-game experience with unity so that will be able to do a better job with that part. Also interested in talking with anybody interested in this more hybrid games for change approach influenced approach.

Hey! I'm currently doing something like that with my SoundWalk app that's in development. It uses real world environments and attaches sound and music to GPS coordinates so that people can explore a physical space while also exploring a sound-space that enhances it. This experience can be loose and exploratory, or more linear depending on the style intended. I hope to bring collaborators on to develop their own experiences within the SoundWalk organization.
