Overview UI Sprite Manager

Introduction

After spending some years in Game Industry, I realize managing sprites in large projects is a headache, as artists have to iterate images a lot to make them better, cool and according to demand. While developers have to integrate those images and to show the feel of those images in the game.

Also, due to this hassle, artists and developers choose a messy workaround, and instead of working in spritesheet, they start working in individual sprites.

Purpose

In big Unity projects, artists have to modify images frequently to make it better, and developers have to reflect that change, as the old reference becomes Missing (if the name of the updated sprite is not the same)
