- Do I have to use version control in Unity, or can I use a separate client?
It’s up to you! Unity Plastic SCM has robust functionality inside the Unity Editor for supported versions. You can check in, check out, lock files, view file history, and even create and switch branches. Alternatively, you can choose to install a separate desktop client.
For former Collaborate users, check out this guide to switching to Plastic in Unity. A list of supported versions for the in-editor experience is available here.
