Development Unity

VS Code IntelliSense not working for Unity3d

Problem: IntelliSense is not working for Unity specific methods and functions (i.e., Update, FixedUpdate, Awake, etc.).

It does work, however, for non Unity specific methods (i.e., IEnumerator, void, public, float, int, etc.) and for Unity specific variables (i.e., Gameobject, transform, camera, etc.) and Unity specific namespaces (i.e., UnityEngine, UnityEditor, Unity, etc.).

I am using: Visual Studio Code 1.41, Unity 3d 2018.4.15f1 (I have the same problem when using 2019.2.x).

I have tried the following solutions to no results:

  1. Using different versions of .NET
  2. Deleted vscode file within the project.
  3. Uninstalled and reinstalled both Unity and Visual studio.
  4. Changed <TargetFrameworkVersion>v4.7.1</TargetFrameworkVersion> to <TargetFrameworkVersion>(Currently installed version)</TargetFrameworkVersion> but unity automatically defaults back to v4.7.1

Possible problems:

  1. The sln file the project creates reads

    Microsoft Visual Studio Solution File, Format Version 11.00
    # Visual Studio 2010
    Project("{FAE04EC0-301F-11D3-BF4B-00C04F79EFBC}") = "Assembly-CSharp", "Assembly-CSharp.csproj", "{B2B58FB2-4462-6B0C-A872-40DD957E5FE0}"
        GlobalSection(SolutionConfigurationPlatforms) = preSolution
            Debug|Any CPU = Debug|Any CPU
            Release|Any CPU = Release|Any CPU
        GlobalSection(ProjectConfigurationPlatforms) = postSolution
            {B2B58FB2-4462-6B0C-A872-40DD957E5FE0}.Debug|Any CPU.ActiveCfg = Debug|Any CPU
            {B2B58FB2-4462-6B0C-A872-40DD957E5FE0}.Debug|Any CPU.Build.0 = Debug|Any CPU
            {B2B58FB2-4462-6B0C-A872-40DD957E5FE0}.Release|Any CPU.ActiveCfg = Release|Any CPU
            {B2B58FB2-4462-6B0C-A872-40DD957E5FE0}.Release|Any CPU.Build.0 = Release|Any CPU
        GlobalSection(SolutionProperties) = preSolution
            HideSolutionNode = FALSE
        GlobalSection(MonoDevelopProperties) = preSolution
            StartupItem = Assembly-CSharp.csproj

    For some reason, the sln file seems to be used for Visual Studio 2010. I do not know if this is intentional or if this is the problem.

  2. When attempting solution 4, as stated above, Unity (or VS Code for all I know) automatically changes .NET version from whatever I manually typed to 4.7.1. I have 4.7.1 already installed so this may not be the problem.

How can I solve this problem? I also asked this question on both reddit and the Unity forums with no success.
