Step one: Open up Blender

Step two: Make a chessboard.

Unity is not exactly optimised for mesh creation! If you were really determined to make something like this, you could use unity's inbuilt cube meshes, and put them together in a grid. Then, just change the textures on every second one so that they make the traditional black-and-white pattern.

Of course, if you are talking about an entire chess game then that is a different matter entirely. That is not a question you can just ask like that, because it is complex enough that there are lots and lots of ways of doing it, each tailored for a specific use case, and there is no way of knowing from your one-and-a-half line question exactly what it is that you want to do!

Basically, I can't really answer the question, because as far as I can tell there isn't even a question to answer here.

What ever happened to using 'answer' to answer a question?

Just as a note, think out your questions more. For instance:

"i am new to unity..?" Is not a question ;) and:

"Can everyone tell me how can i make chess board..?" The answer to that is No... Everyone in the world could not tell you how to create a chessboard for / in unity.

I know its nit-picking, but it shows a lack of effort on your part.

1 answer: sort voted first

You don't "combine cube and meshes" a cube contains a mesh (the mesh is what makes up the cube ;)).

I would check out this post:

Unity Learning Resources

And also, have a look at unity's FPS and platformer tutorials, they are very detailed and walk you through a lot of core elements of unity.

Also, it sounds like you need to learn a bit more about the 3d modelling side of things (coming from the quote at the start of this answer). I would suggest 3dbuzz.com for this. Altho, if you type "3dsmax tutorial" or "maya tutorial" in google, you will get some good results. Also, it depends what 3d package you have, if you don't. Do some research on the ones available and take your pick.

Altho you don't realise it, you have summarised many questions into 1, unanswerable, vague question. Once you learn more, you will come across specific questions that people can directly answer to help you. You have to help yourself in the meantime.

@DaveA Syclamoth actually said "I can't really answer the question" ;)

Technically, neither can i. But i have attempted to point him in the right direction so that he can answer his questions himself.

I would have up-voted Syclamoth if it had been an answer.
