Hi everyone, glad to be here.
I have been reading up on some similar topics and articles, but I wasn't able to find much regarding tech stacks or pipeline solutions for a small studio (2-4 people working locally here in Chicago). There are a lot of options out there, and I am still thinking about how these pieces all come together, so any advice is great advice!
We have our own dedicated Ubuntu Server (13.10) with a public IP and is fire walled. Primary use of this server is to bring all our game assets and code into Unity. We would like to find some recommended solutions for version control, asset management, and general software to help us with iterations and builds.
Perforce, Plastic SCM, Unity Asset Server ,Atlassian's Software solutions like Stash, Bamboo, and JIRA. Redmine. Podio/Basecamp.
So, I guess the question becomes what are some bare bone services that our team could benefit from? I know we need some sort of version control and issue/bug tracker. Since we are all going to be working together locally here in Chicago, the social side of things isn't important, but it would be nice. Just not sure how all these things plug into each other or if we really need them for our size? In my mind, here was a possible stack:
Ubuntu Server -> Stash (GIT) -> Perforce -> Bamboo -> JIRA
Sadly, I am not even sure if the above example is even remotely close to a pipeline, so please forgive my naiveness! It could be as simple as just using Perforce with some plugins for the art assets?
Thanks for any suggestions, clarifications, or ideas!
