This Unity script will add fields in the inspector that allow you to enter a scene number. When the user presses the space bar, Unity will load the new scene.
using UnityEngine;
using System.Collections;
using UnityEngine.UI;
public class SceneLoader : MonoBehaviour {
private bool loadScene = false;
private int scene;
private Text loadingText;
// Updates once per frame
void Update() {
// If the player has pressed the space bar and a new scene is not loading yet...
if (Input.GetKeyUp(KeyCode.Space) && loadScene == false) {
// ...set the loadScene boolean to true to prevent loading a new scene more than once...
loadScene = true;
// ...change the instruction text to read "Loading..."
loadingText.text = "Loading...";
// ...and start a coroutine that will load the desired scene.
// If the new scene has started loading...
if (loadScene == true) {
// ...then pulse the transparency of the loading text to let the player know that the computer is still working.
loadingText.color = new Color(loadingText.color.r, loadingText.color.g, loadingText.color.b, Mathf.PingPong(Time.time, 1));
// The coroutine runs on its own at the same time as Update() and takes an integer indicating which scene to load.
IEnumerator LoadNewScene() {
// This line waits for 3 seconds before executing the next line in the coroutine.
// This line is only necessary for this demo. The scenes are so simple that they load too fast to read the "Loading..." text.
yield return new WaitForSeconds(3);
// Start an asynchronous operation to load the scene that was passed to the LoadNewScene coroutine.
AsyncOperation async = Application.LoadLevelAsync(scene);
// While the asynchronous operation to load the new scene is not yet complete, continue waiting until it's done.
while (!async.isDone) {
yield return null;
