Using Google Sheets with Unity can be a great way to organize and save your data and settings for your game. Here are some steps to help you get started:
Create and share your Google Sheet from Google Drive: Once you’ve created your Google Sheet, you’ll need to share it with those who should have access to the sheet. If you create an online game, you may need to share with players (create a link and they will be able to access the sheet). Otherwise, you can just share with colleagues or Game Designers if this is not an online game.
Integrate Google Sheet API: Once you’ve shared the sheet, you can then use Google Sheet API to pulls the data into Unity3D. Google provides an API C# library which can querying and updating Google Sheets from a Unity application. You can see a quick guide here on how to set up your Google API: https://developers.google.com/sheets/api/quickstart/dotnet
Make sure your data is stored in the correct format: For example, JSON is a widely used format for data transfer in games. You’ll want to make sure your data is stored in JSON format in Google Sheets so Unity can easily read it.
Use custom scripts and use them in Unity: Lastly, you’ll want to create custom scripts for your game. For example, you can create a script which reads data from Google Sheets and generates in-game levels, or a script which updates highscores. Finally, use these scripts in Unity to make sure the game behaves according to your settings.
Using Google Sheets with Unity can be a great way to save and organize data, settings and preferences for your game or application. With the help of Google’s API library and a few custom scripts, you should be able to get your data up and running quickly!
