How do I transfer Assets to my offline machine?

Symptoms

  • I would like to transfer Assets to my offline machine
  • I would like to download Assets to my offline machine
  • My machine cannot be connected to the Internet, how can I transfer my purchased Assets to this computer?

Cause

Your project may currently be stored on an offline machine or environment and you need to add Assets that have been purchased on the Asset Store to the project. 

Resolution

1. You will need to first download the Asset via a machine that is connected to the internet.

2. Once downloaded, you can find the Asset files in the following directory:

*Please note: These folders are hidden by default*

Windows - User>AppData>Roaming>Unity>Asset Store>"Publisher Name"
Mac - User>Library>Unity>Asset Store>"Publisher Name"

3. You can transfer the Asset files via USB to the offline machine, or one of the machines in your offline environment.

More Information

Please note: If you need all users in your offline environment to use the Asset you will need to share it via the network using source control, also, if the Asset(s) in question are 'Extension Assets' or in the Asset description it says 'license per seat', then one copy of the Asset per developer will need to be purchased.

    The correct Windows path is %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Unity\Asset Store-<version_number>\<publisher_name>

    This is SOOOO BAD!

    The folder they are referring to is HIDDEN by default on mac. 

     

    A simple task of purchasing an item and downloading to your computer became a 3hours TASK to figure out how to do it. such a shame

     

    waste of time!
