Ja, det lyder meget lækkert.. meeen det lyder lidt mere som en 3.6 end en 4.0 ? men det er måske bare mig der er kræsen?

Det kan godt ses som lidt pricy, da mange af tingene allerede kan købes som plugins på asset store for en slik.
-f.eks. GUI/text rendering stuff, navigations AI og mobil optimeret geometri tjuhej.

Men hvis animations-delen sparker røv, så er det næsten før at det kan forsvares, da værdiforøgelsen ved en opgradering fra rimeligt skod => sparker røv, vil gøre en meget stor forskel ift. nuværende tidsforbrug og frustrationer i arbejdet med Unitys animations system :)
