This page covers how to install, setup, and upgrade the Flipside Creator Tools in order to import your own characters and sets into Flipside Studio.
Note: The Flipside Creator Tools require a specific version of Unity in order to work properly in Flipside Studio. Please install Unity 2019.2.11f1 from one of these download links:
Please see upgrading your characters and sets to Unity 2019 for instructions on upgrading assets made in Unity 2017.
Note: To create a Flipside account, install and launch Flipside Studio through Oculus Home or SteamVR and enter your email address to register for an account.
You should now be ready to begin using the Flipside Creator Tools to publish custom characters and sets into your Flipside account.
The Flipside Creator Tools user interface is primarily made up of 3 elements:
The Flipside Creator Tools wizard can be opened via Flipside Creator Tools > Open Creator Tools in the above menu. Here is where you can build and publish your custom characters and sets.
Flipside Creator Tools includes dozens of custom components that can be used to build interactivity into your custom characters and sets. These are modified by selecting them in the Hierarchy window and editing their settings in the Inspector window.
You can find example scenes and documentation to help you get started under the Assets/FlipsideCreatorTools/Examples and Assets/FlipsideCreatorTools/Documentation folders in Unity once you've imported the package. Double click the example scenes to open them and see how things are set up.
First, always make sure you're still on the correct version of Unity. If not, it's always a good idea to make a backup of your project before upgrading Unity, in case you need to go back.
To upgrade to a new version of the Flipside Creator Tools, download the latest version and import it into your Unity project via Assets > Import Package > Custom Package in the Unity application menu.
