Light Baking and You
Lighting in Unity is a complicated topic. It's also very slow. It can feel like a ton of trial and error. To remove some of that trial and error, this book summarizes a lot of important information that's good to know about light baking. This is based on my...

Occlusion Culling and You
Occlusion culling is a complicated topic, and pretty easy to misunderstand. With this guide, I'm hoping I can give people a better idea of when and where to use it. This is based on my guide at https://gitlab.com/s-ilent/SCSS/-/wikis/Other/Occlusion-Cullin...
Reflection Probes and You
Unity's reflection probe system is a little confusing and convoluted at first. Things that would seem to be good practice turn out to be horrible mistakes for newcomers. After passing around lots of similar advice for years, I've decided to collate it all into...

Dealing with VideoPlayers on Quest
Short answer: VRChat utilizes a tool called YTDL/YTDLP for being able to parse generic urls into video specific ones. When you try to "play" a url like youtube.com/watch?v=VIDEOID, that isn't a link to a video, but a webpage CONTAINING a video. What YTDL does ...
This prefab lets you track information about your world! For example: How many players fall off your world? Does anyone use my mirror? Where do they spend their time? Does anyone press that button you added? Download https://drive.google.com/file/d/1giI_...
When players fall from a great height, they ragdoll and make a sound. Jank alert! This prefab uses the very obscure and obsolete VRChat combat system. Use at your own risk! It probably won't work with more than 20 players. Download https://drive.google.com/...
Bakery is a tool for baking lights with Unity. However, it only works on NVIDIA GPUs. For VRchat, it's really useful because it's high quality, using raytracing and AI denoising supports physically accurate lighting, but also options for stylisation like fak...
Why bake lights?
If you put a light in a scene, it works, so why do we need to bother with baking? There's two reasons. First, each realtime light needs to draw everything it touches again. It means lights are really expensive to render, compared to a lightmap which is just s...
How expensive is unbaked lighting?
This section covers exactly what the cost of each type of light is. As we're measuring cost, our currency is draw call passes. A draw call is Unity sending data to the graphics card to render. We won't consider the cost of actually shading pixels in this sect...
Realtime lighting and "Importance"
Realtime lights also have an Importance setting. Unity will only render (in VRC) 8 lights as full extra pass lights, which places an upper limit on the number of times an individual object can be affected by lights and re-rendered. Which lights it chooses is ...
What's a lightmap?
Just as a model might have a basic albedo/diffuse map, a normal map, and etc., a light map is a texture applied to the surface of that model. Using Bakery or whatever, we pre-calculate the lighting using higher quality lighting calculations than we can afford ...
How to make lightmap UVs
Creating UV maps for objects is tough. And doing it again for lightmaps is even more work. But it makes a big difference to visual quality. Unity's automatic lightmap UV generation doesn't work too well with complex objects, and for simple ones, it can still p...
What are light probes?
Lightmaps cover the environment, but if you just bake a lightmap, dynamic objects won't be affected. You also need light probes! Light probes are points in space that capture an image of the surrounding lighting from all directions. When there are enough prob...

A Beginner's Guide To Using The In-Built Unity Lightmappers
