The Microsoft team in charge of the tooling for Unity has just released version 2.0 of Visual Studio Tools for Unity. For those who do not use Visual Studio as IDE (guys … really ?!), take a few minutes to try this awesome product!

Here is an overview of what you can achieve with this tool:

  • Debug your game on VS (breakpoints, exceptions, …)
  • Create scripts (MonoBehavior …)
  • Errors on the Unity editor are linked to the VS error window
  • Code Coloration for Unity’s shaders (VS 2015 only)
  • Resharper :)

For more information, see the official post : http://blogs.msdn.com/b/visualstudio/archive/2015/07/27/visual-studio-tools-for-unity-2-0.aspx

Have fun!
