⚖️ Unity Tips - Build Size And Assets Usage


Quick tips on build sizes in Unity, and how to identify what’s taking place in your project.

This is a great way to spot assets that may not be used anymore but still somehow end up in the build ( like if it’s still present in a scene ). If you want to know where the asset is actually used you can grab its GUID in its .meta file and with Git, you can do git grep [guid] and it’ll give you the list of where the asset is referenced.
