SOCIAL AND COLLABORATION
Complete all work as early as possible. You may think "Oh, silly, that's not important", but it is extremely important. Completing work early and putting a good effort into it really brings dreams into fruition.
Don't waste time. If you don't have something to do then ask for a task. It can be hard to bring yourself to ask for more work but in the long run it's so important and makes a big difference in the work you get done.
Demand written instructions for tasks that you can refer to while doing your assignments.
Do your part in order to ensure that your part of the game gets completed. Make the parts of the game that you work on the best possible product of your abilities. The more effort and perfection put into each piece of the game that people work on will result in a better final product. Please do your work, even if your game is not chosen.
UNITY AND GIT
Pay attention when Mr. Gustin is explain Github since it can get confusing pretty quickly.
Git is—while a friend, a dangerous one. You must learn to work in unison with it, and not let it destroy you.
Learn Unity early. A lot of the errors and lag time that we had during this project was because of the non-coding kids having to learn a whole new program after just learning Maya. On top of the texturing and actual art capabilites, less people were able to work on that due to the fact that kids weren't comfortable with Unity enough to want to take such tasks. All in all, playing around and learning Unity before the class starts will make for a more efficient class. Other than that, this class is a really fun and creative atmosphere that I would reccomend to anyone incoming from an art or compter science department. No matter how far you get, getting to say that you got to contribute to such a largescale project for classwork is a pretty cool thing.
INITIATIVE AND PERSONAL MANAGEMENT
Do not hesitate to address any kinds of problems, even if they are from your manager.
Expect there to be problems but to also expect there to be solutions! You are creative and this is like learning how to think in a new way! It takes time and is challenging but is also rewarding and fun!
Try not to get boged down by set backs, there's nothing that you guys won't be able face!
The big thing I want to stress is organization; put everything you make in one place.
