Unity Cheat Sheet and Quick Reference Now Available!

Often times when working on Unity projects, I find myself asking the same questions over and over.

What is the difference between Awake() and Start()?

What’s the process of kicking off a coroutine again?

What are some of the static Vector3 variables available to me?

These simple questions can be answered a quick Google search, but the process of answering them can break the flow of a work session. Once a flow has been broken, it can be a non-trivial affair to get back into it.

So I put together a Cheat Sheet to keep the flow alive and you can download it right here:

The sheet summarizes some of the more common used features in Unity using C#. If you are using Boo or UnityScript, well, you’re out of luck but if there’s enough demand I’m happy to put one together for you.

Here’s what the sheet covers:

  • Creating and destroying GameObjects
  • Accessing Components
  • GameObject events
  • Vector Variables
  • Timing Variables
  • Physics Events
  • Coroutine Example and Return Types

This is just a first draft of the Unity cheat sheet. If you have any suggestions or comments on how to improve it, please let me know in the comments.
