It is a mirror of the Assets folder in the directory where the project resides. Removing assets from this location deletes them from the hard drive! Removing assets from the directory in Explorer removes them from the Project view and could break the scene. Figure 2-12. The Project view , One Column Layout (left) vs. Two Columns Layout (right) Inspector You use the Inspector to access various properties and components for objects you’ve selected in either the Hierarchy or Project views. You can also access other scene-related information here.

Activate the Move tool. 5. Toggle the coordinate system from Global to Local (see Figure 2-35). Figure 2-35. Global to Local Coordinate system and object pivot to object center toggles The local coordinate system allows you to transform the object relative to its own local coordinates, as opposed to the fixed scene or World coordinates. You may also wish to use the object Center instead of the object’s creation Pivot. 6. Now, move the box in its local X direction. 7. Set the cube’s rotations back to 0 in the Inspector.

4. Click Browse and navigate to where you’ll keep your Unity projects, then create a New Folder for the book project. 5. Name the folder BookProject 6. Select Character Controller, Light Cookies, Light Flares, Particles, Physics Materials, Projectors, Scripts, Skyboxes, Terrains, and Water(Basic). 24 Chapter 2 ■ Unity UI Basics—Getting Started ■■Note This book will make optional use of several Pro features, but the project will not rely on them to achieve a finished result.
