Send your serial number and the unity3d files over to the support team and they will be able to help you out.

That doesn't sound like you are developing games (more like you try to steal some content?) unity3D files are webbuilds. The only way you can "open" them is when it's embedded in a webpage and opened with a browser that have the Unity WebPlayer installed. You can't access any of the data in those packages, that's why it's a build.

though sadly it is possible, since it is done in .Net.

any obfuscation tool would reveal the contents! getting usable assets is not possible(i guess even that is in a harder way!), but the code will never be safe!

As @Bunny83 stated above, .unity3d files are not able to be opened/edited. The assets within a .unity3d file are stored in a proprietary, closed format to protect proprietary data. (Source)

However, you can embed them in a webpage to view them if you have the Unity web player installed. I created a sample page to do this here.

Download and install Unity Web Player and open your .unity3d file using firefox or any browser that fits you.

How to open using browser:

  1. If you have a unity3d file downloaded on your PC. Simply right click the file then click the "open with" command.

  2. Choose a browser from the list such as Firefox or browse to search a browser for yourself.

  3. Be sure that you installed Unity Web Player on your computer.

Old topic but you can decompile .unity3d assets using a program called Unity Obfuscator, which gives you .assets and .dll files from the build.

You then take the sharedassets0.assets file it creates into unity and run a reflection script that goes through and copies all the components into a folder.

Well, i would say script-kiddies, who don't manage to download a file from the internet, don't deserve stealing other peoples work. Kind of natural selection i guess.
