Uniform Points On a Sphere
As promised, here is my code for creating a uniform set of points on a sphere.

This script is designed to be used from the inspector.
Simply add the component to a game object, assign a prefab, then right click the component and click "Create Points".
Wow  that is an amazing snippet, how did you come about it.
Works great!
Works nice in C#.
Iam looking for a way to do this in JS. Please help me.
var prefab : GameObject;
var count : int= 10;
var size : float= 20;
function Start () {
var points = UniformPointsOnSphere(count, size);
for(var i=0; i<count; i++) {
var g = Instantiate(prefab, transform.position+points[i], Quaternion.identity) as GameObject;
g.transform.parent = transform;
}
}
function UniformPointsOnSphere ( N : float , scale : float ) : Vector3[] {
var points = new Array (Vector3(0, 0, 0));
var i = Mathf.PI * (3  Mathf.Sqrt(5));
var o = 2 / N;
for(var k=0; k<N; k++) {
var y = k * o  1 + (o / 2);
var r = Mathf.Sqrt(1  y*y);
var phi = k * i;
points.Add(new Vector3(Mathf.Cos(phi)*r, y, Mathf.Sin(phi)*r) * scale);
}
return points.ToArray();
}
