Unity Models & Sprites 🩻


Unity sprites are 2D flat images that can be moved, rotated, and scaled within the game environment. They can represent characters, objects, backgrounds, and other elements in a game.

Given a texture, set the "Texture Type" to "Sprite" to create a sprite.

πŸ“š You may modify the pixel by unit value too, if the sprite is too large for your game scale.


A sprite sheet is a big image with a lot of sprites in it. It's a common practice to optimize multiple operations using textures.

  • Set "Sprite Mode" to "Multiple"
  • Open the sprite editor
  • Slide the image (automatic vs grid)
  • Apply changes

Unity Meshes

A mesh is a "skeleton" that the graphic card will use to render an object. It's not commonly used in 2D games, only 3D games.

Every game object that uses a mesh will have two components.

The Mesh filter tells which mesh should be rendered. It could be a cube, a cylinder, or your custom mesh/3D models from Blender 😎.

The Mesh renderer is used to configure how to render the mesh.
