I guess I wasn’t expecting my uploading history to be taken into consideration. But if we really want to get into details I’d be happy to share. I’ve been working on a major industrial worksite project for nearly 6 months. Working almost everyday. Hence the very little uploads recently. I maybe turned on my home computer once a month. And previously I was still learning, so there wasn’t much for me to upload.
With the completion of said project, I was recently laid off. I was looking forward to ramping up the number of models I would be uploading. Many of which I had planned to be view only. And since we’re diving into the nitty gritty of details here I might as well fully share. I’m developing a website that specializes in reviewing Unity Store assets. One of the components of the business plan was taking existing packages (With permission from the publishers) and embedding SketchFab previews of parts of the package. Like up close views of certain models or parts. Playing out animations. Etc. Really giving people some thorough reviews of certain packages.
I can’t list them for sale obviously. And 1 limit a month completely ties my hands for any sort of plans in that sense. It was just a huge disappointment to read this today. As with any content creator and their uploading site, it feels counter intuitive. Like if YouTube told it’s creators they could only upload 1 video per month now. I’m sure I’m not the only uploader this hinders.
I do really appreciate the extra features and the platform as a whole has progressed amazingly. What I meant was specifically three events.
First, when I originally signed up the listing yourself as a business option was free. Shortly there after I was forced to change my account to personal. So it felt like I lost out on features there. But I understood it’s that SketchFab is a business and money needs to be made. I figured I could always get Pro or something later when I started making enough of a profit to justify it.
Second; In this thread are a lot of people who also never received any sort of notification. Several of my models were disabled. Because I had custom backgrounds. And I searched my email and I never received any notification. Which was disappointing because several of the models were associated with a package I sell on the Unity Asset Store. It was disabled for about half a year. Which undoubtedly hurt my sales. (Not a high sales volume item, but the notion is aggravating) And again, that felt like losing a few more features that we had otherwise.
And third is the ability to only upload 1 view only limit. Just feels like losing another feature/taking out a major part of your platform.
Thanks! It’s appreciated. And I appreciate you responding.
