Configure Somnium Space Unity SDK

The steps to install and configure Somnium Space Unity SDK.
* BUG: This tutorial use a pre-made Unity project since you cant create a Unity-2019.2.XX project with unity hub 3.0 + (you could use an older unity HUB version to, but it’s hard to find)

  1. Create a Unity account
  2. Install Unity HUB
  3. Install unity
  4. Somnium Space is being updated from Unity 2019.2.2 ➡️ Unity 2022.3 (LTS) which represents a significant step forward in expanding the possibilities for world builders, as well as aesthetic appeal of virtual worlds. This change means that creators will have access to a suite of enhanced features, including improved rendering, AI, physics engines, and artist tools, to create more intricate, realistic and immersive virtual worlds. Furthermore, the new Unity version offers superior optimization, allowing for smoother gameplay, reduced load times, and enhanced performance, crucial for the richly detailed Virtual Reality worlds that Somnium Space supports.
  5. One of the major advantages of this upgrade is the opportunity to port Somnium natively to 🍎 Apple’s visionOS. This compatibility with visionOS means that Somnium’s upcoming standalone VR client will work seamlessly with the Apple Vision Pro device, Apple’s cutting-edge augmented reality headset. By making this move, Somnium Space is not only responding to the current technological demands but also preparing for the future, broadening the accessibility of its immersive virtual reality landscapes to a wider audience.
  6. Activate free license with Unity HUB
    • In Unity Hub: User / Manage License / Activate License
  7. Use SomniumSpace-Guide project template (zip file).
    (Use Solution 1 or 2 to avoid any error)
    • Solution 1: Put the zip at the root of the C:/ drive before un-zip (then move the extracted folder at desired location).
    • Solution 2: Use 7-zip software to extract the project.
    • SomniumSpace-Guide Project Template
  8. With Unity HUB, use OPEN and look for the project folder you just extracted.
  9. Open the project.
  10. Never Update Unity, keep version 2019.2.21
  11. Somnium SDK may need an update before been usable.
