Unity Skill Tree Pro – Free Plugin

About 6 months ago I sat down to tackle writing a custom skill tree system in Unity. I wanted a visual editor that could easily assemble a tree at the same complexity level of Skyrim. And magically assemble all the data into a visual output without lifting an extra finger. After a couple days of combining some old scripts with a shiny new interface I created Unity Skill Tree Pro. A free plugin that makes complex skill tree management automated.

This is just the first iteration of Unity Skill Tree Pro. So the visual editor is still a little rough. That said it does a lot out of the box right now. If you want to customize it further the source is freely available online and it was written to be easily extendable without touching source code.

JavaScript Easing Library – Simple Tween JS

One of the major components missing from my open source game engine has been a lightweight JavaScript easing library. If you aren’t familiar with easing, its used to create unique animation movement that feels lifelike and less robotic. There are general use libraries such as jQuery and completely dedicated JavaScript easing libraries that have the words Tweening in the title. While these tools are great, I found them to be too robust, slow, or undocumented. Because of this I’ve created a new lightweight open source library called Simple Tween JS.

Simple Tween JS is a lightweight open source JavaScript easing library at less than 200 lines of code. Complete documentation and the latest version can be found at the GitHub repo.
