Unity3d settings

You need to do these settings 

Switch to Visible Meta Files in Edit → Project Settings → Editor → Version Control Mode. 



Enable External option in Unity → Preferences → Packages → Repository
Switch to Force Text in Edit → Project Settings → Editor → Asset Serialization Mode.


















Save scene and project from File menu
We have done it! Now you are free to use your favorite version control system. Don’t forget to add everything except Assets and ProjectSettings folders to your ignore list.Here is .gitignore we use in our project:
