I’m now looking to store static text (potential names to be selected randomly, object configurations, etc.) in an accessible unity resource/asset. I want the game to access and load this information and the information to be packaged as part of the game after a build (i.e. in the DayDream *.apk file that gets deployed to the device).
Got it…text asset in a resources folder. My list of star names is now in place. Now I need to shuffle them and associate them with stars and (hopefully) display the names near each star. Ideally I want the name tags to always be positioned so that the normal of the tag passes through the camera and the vertical axis of the label tag passes through the associated star with a fixed distance maintained between the bottom edge of the name plate and the center of the star. Ideally the top of the name plate would be ‘up’ to the viewer as well. I’ll have to look into enforcing these constraints once I’ve gotten any sort of name tags working 🙂
