Kinds

[Planned] New Feature in KINDS 1.2 – Tags in Scene Window

This is a new feature of Kinds and Kinds Pro. By enabling the Show Tags option, you can easily track GameObjects in the Scene view. Click a tag to select the GameObject. Then click once more to frame the GameObject.

BOOST GAME DEVELOPMENT

If you were like me, you’d be spending a lot of time exploring game objects. I tried a few assets to reduce wasted time but they didn’t help me. I had to set up something or pay constant attention to use them. I wanted a more automatic one and Kinds is the result.

After much consideration, I found that grouping game objects by their component types was the most convenient method. In most cases, the reason you look for the game object is to access its component. So grouping by component type is natural and has less cognitive friction. Moreover, Kinds automatically regroups game objects whenever you load another scene. You don’t need to do anything!

Why don’t you download Kinds and boost your game development? 🙂
