      I really love this super IDE together with Unity. It's the best combination ! Thank you for this.

      "Visual Studio 2015 Tools for Unity" is an 11MB installer. The Unity game development option on Visual Studio 2017 Community installer is almost 5GB! Why?!

      I've started thinking that it may download and install Unity 5.x as well, which is not the best way to install Unity...

      I hope someone can explain the situation.
