    Hello, folks. I want to move on to Unity and the UI of Unity is not much of a problem for me. My main problem is that i really want be able to design any levels easily since I have no skills with any 3d programs like Blender and I am not really sure what to do. Right now I want to try to make a simple FPS, so any useful advice?

    Mmmhh you'll prettymuch have to get all your models from free model sites like turbosquid.com
    google free 3d model download and theres about half a dozen useful sites. just search for free models on them.
    Also the levels are really easy to make, its just shaping terrain up and down and putting down boxes for walls and stuff.
    won't be any masterpiece but it's doable.

    Why not just make the levels inside Unity, there are tons of tools on the Asset store for that. Also as posted above there are sites with free models.

    I highly recommend looking into This Course if you plan to be a 1 person indie developer. Its amazing, and teaches you to use Blender even if you have no knowledge of it whatsoever. Ben and Michael are amazing teachers. Its normally $195 course and on sale now for $19 with lifetime access.

    do the level design in unity, use websites for free 3d models or you can look around in the unity asset store(probably the easier way) for some free models but if you can pay then you'll have more choice.

    the other option is to team up with a freelance artist but 95% of them will only work for money

    Thanks for the suggestions. I decided right now to just try to learn Blender so I could make models myself, hopefully.
