Migrating from Mirror
https://github.com/vis2k/Mirror/
The bad news is that you will need to create your project from scratch, and can’t reuse anything from the MonoBehaviour world. DOTSNET intentionally uses pure ECS, not hybrid.
The good news is that DOTSNET was optimized for ease of use. It’s very clean, simple & elegant to work with. It’s extremely stable thanks to over 90% test coverage.
In fact, it makes networking fun again!
Here is a brief overview on how the old concepts translate to DOTSNET. Please take your time to learn each one, and don’t expect to convert your full Mirror project to DOTSNET by friday.
