Might & Magic X - Music & Unity Engine
The developers of Might & Magic X have two more updates this week you might find interesting. The first update talks about the Unity engine.
Unity Pro and Unity Free
A lot of people have been asking us the questions “Why did you choose Unity Pro? Why can’t we use Unity Free?”. We know that you are all curious about the reasons that motivated that choice. The reasons are quite simple: Unity Pro offers features that Unity Free doesn’t. Nevertheless, it doesn’t mean that you can’t use Unity Free in order to create mods for Might & Magic X.
Here are some explanations about the differences between Unity Free and Unity Pro:
First of all, it is important to understand that Unity Free and Unity Pro can be used to create mods. We recommended to use Unity Pro as it includes more features (see the licenses comparison from Unity Official Website) to create and polish mods. For instance, Unity Pro allows users:
- To calculate occlusion, allowing users to optimize their mods. More info on the Hidden Surface Determination wiki page.
- To support Level of Details, allowing users to optimize their mods. More info on the Level of Detail wiki page.
Even if mods can be created through Unity Free, it is not possible for players to export their content, neither to share it with other players nor to test it themselves. This restriction is due to the file format (called Asset Bundles) used by the game (and provided with Unity 3D).
The next update deals with the games music that was played by a symphony at the Playfest Festival 2013 in September.
A Symphony of Might & Magic
There are times in one's life that deserve to be called "Crowning Moments of Awesome". Having the music of your game played live by an orchestra is one of those moments.
In September 2013 the Playfest Festival was held in Málaga, Spain. It included a symphonic concert of videogame music, during which several Might & Magic themes were played. Composer Jason Graves, who worked on Heroes VI Shades of Darkness and of course Might & Magic X Legacy, was present to conduct the orchestra.
Two songs from Might & Magic X Legacy were played during the event. Enjoy!
