When you're working in your text editor, it can be a nuisance to have to manually switch back to Unity to test your game. This AppleScript will automatically bring Unity to the front and press Command-P to start the game:
AppleScript - Play In Unity.scpt
tell application "System Events" tell application "Unity" to activate keystroke "p" using command down end tell</boo> Enter this into the AppleScript editor, save it in whatever mode your text editor supports (probably 'script'), and place it in a location where your text editor will be able to find it. For example, with [http://www.barebones.com/products/bbedit/ BBEdit], save the script in ~/Library/Application Support/BBEdit/Scripts/. Once you've done that, you can assign a keystroke to launch it using the Scripts Palette. This also works for the free [http://www.barebones.com/products/textwrangler/ TextWrangler] editor, providing you substitute 'TextWrangler' for 'BBEdit' in the above path.
