    NGUI Next Gen UI is perhaps one of the most popular extensions available for the Unity engine The first thing that any reader unfamiliar with NGUI needs to know is that there is a 95 price tag on it I will wholeheartedly say that it is well worth the investment, but on to the actual book review.When I first saw that there was a book coming out about NGUI, I was both excited and apprehensive It was only recently that I was able to purchase NGUI and at times I feelcomfortable with a bo NGUI Next Gen UI is perhaps one of the most popular extensions available for the Unity engine The first thing that any reader unfamiliar with NGUI needs to know is that there is a 95 price tag on it I will wholeheartedly say that it is well worth the investment, but on to the actual book review.When I first saw that there was a book coming out about NGUI, I was both excited and apprehensive It was only recently that I was able to purchase NGUI and at times I feelcomfortable with a book or PDF file than I am with online wikis or other such styles of documentation However, my trepidation about the book is largely due to the developer of NGUI, Tasheren Entertainment, having a reputation for consistently updating the plugin to fix issues and add new functionality That being said, the book was written for version 3.0.2 and at the time of this writing I am using NGUI version 3.5.7 There are some fairly large changes in way NGUI is presented in the new version that is available and those changes are seen almost immediately in the books text It is rather simple to figure out what to do in order to accomplish the tasks in the book, so personally I don t consider this a deal breaker for having this book in my library.The presentation of the NGUI workflow seen in Chapter 1, Getting started with NGUI, has been entirely replaced by a farefficient system There is no longer a need to go through a UI creation wizard since the option to create your UI is available directly from the NGUI menu in Unity Additionally, the amount of GameObjects created for a baseline UI is reduced from 4 to 2 Though the explanation of object purposes and capabilities is correct, some readers may be confused if they are afraid to go beyond the book s content right away This disparity between book contents continues throughout the entire text as it was the workflow at the time of the books production.It is my opinion that NGUI is a very good UI solution for Unity and although the information in this book largely covers what is considered to be legacy methodologies, it is still a good reference for learning some great stuff with NGUI from creating multiple interfaces all the way to a small 2D game I would like to note that Unity will be releasing a new UI toolset that was largely based on the workflow of NGUI, this was discussed a bit at the global Unity developer s conference last year At the time Michael Lyashenko, the creator of NGUI, was working at Unity and perhaps helped on their GUI system implementation However, Mr Lyashenko left Unity for reasons of his own and since then there has been an explosion of development on NGUI Although Unity announced the release of their new native UI tools for sometime this summer in Unity s 4.6 release, I have no doubt that NGUI will still be a go to system for UI development in Unity for the foreseeable future.I could easily recommend this book to someone that wants to start working with NGUI and does not mind going back and forth from the book to the web to sort out any information that may seem to conflict with the current version That being said, I don t consider this book to be the go to guide to NGUI but it is a good starting point

    After interviewing with a few unity3D shops,I was hit with the same question every single time do you have NGUI experience to which I replied no, but I m sure I can pick it up They didn t share my optimism Enter in NGUI for Unity What I love about e books these days is their size and how concise they can be, and this book delivers not only on both counts, but sets you in motion with a very real world example project that covers a great portion of the capabilities of NGUI Everything After interviewing with a few unity3D shops,I was hit with the same question every single time do you have NGUI experience to which I replied no, but I m sure I can pick it up They didn t share my optimism Enter in NGUI for Unity What I love about e books these days is their size and how concise they can be, and this book delivers not only on both counts, but sets you in motion with a very real world example project that covers a great portion of the capabilities of NGUI Everything from the wizards to widgets to creating atlas and fonts is covered The book isn t exhaustive in its explanations but IS thorough in pointing out the features and properties of all the components it covers which makes it easy to follow along with in the examples.The author gets right to the meat of the matter immediately walking you step by step through the sample project It helps to have Unity3D experience and you ll have to understand the basics of how unity works with prefabs and code as this book is targeting unity devs looking for a solid UI framework It IS written in a very practical manner so even a complete beginner could get something out of it Now, in thinking back about my response to potential clients about just picking NGUI up , I see how deep the framework really is It s muchthan just a set of UI components, and this book really brought me up to speed in a very short amount if time excellent work

    Finished reading NGUI for Unity a few days ago Since, I ve been skimming through it using it as a reference I absolutely appreciated that the author was brief and concise in his examples, it made them a most valuable resource while working It was very easy to read and has given me a much better understanding of NGUI The resources that are provided with the book are also very well organised, and make for an excellent starting point while tinkering I definitely recommend this book
