Introducing: The Creator Toolkit, Powered by Unity (Beta)

December 19, 2022

It’s the dawn of a new era. We are so excited to announce the launch of the Creator Toolkit, powered by Unity. Our Toolkit enables creators to build with the world's most popular game engine and publish straight from Unity to a live multiplayer experience on web, mobile & HMD within seconds.

We are “the first to bring this level of visual quality directly in a web browser, with fast load times and no download or installs,” according to Venture Beat—allowing our community to build even more immersive, interactive, and beautiful 3D spaces on Spatial within a single click in your browser.

With our Creator Toolkit, you'll be able to use Unity's powerful suite of tools to create stunning 3D environments and experiences that can be shared and explored by others on our platform. This will open up a world of possibilities for creators, who can now build even more complex and engaging spaces for their communities to explore and  interact with.

Whether you're a developer looking to create a new game or social experience, or a creator wanting to build a virtual gallery or exhibition space, our Creator Toolkit has everything you need to bring your vision to life. You'll have access to a wide range of tools and features, including:

Spatial Components:

  • Trigger Event (experimental): Invokes the supplied Events when an avatar enters or exits the trigger respectively. Choose between Unity Events or Animator events.
  • Avatar Teleporter: teleport people to different locations in your space!
  • Synced Animator (experimental): Ensures that an animation in a space is synced across everyone in the space.
  • Seat Hotspot: designate locations where avatars inside spatial can sit down.
  • Projector Surface: Used to project screen-shares and video streams on to.
  • And so much more…

  • Unity’s Asset library: With a library of pre-made objects, materials, and textures, you can quickly and easily build out your 3D space, without having to create everything from scratch.
  • Lighting and shading: With support for Unity’s Universal Render Pipeline (URP), the toolkit includes powerful lighting and shading tools that allow you to create beautiful and atmospheric 3D spaces. You can control the direction, intensity, and color of the lighting, as well as add shadows, reflections, and other effects to create a sense of depth and realism.
  • Physics engine: The Unity physics engine allows you to create realistic and dynamic interactions within your 3D space. This means that objects can move, collide, and behave in a way that feels natural and lifelike.

With the Creator Toolkit, you can build immersive 3D spaces that are truly your own. Whether you're looking to create a virtual world for your community to explore, or a space for friends and family to gather and socialize, our toolkit has everything you need to bring your vision to life.

We're excited to see what you'll create, and we can’t wait to immerse ourselves and the world into the amazing 3D spaces that you build.
