All scenes are already loaded when I start the game. How do i only load one?

I’m trying to make a starting page where i can click play button to move to gameplay scene.
I made the button and loading scene part, but the problem is that once i start the game, the gameplay scene is already loaded and gameplay scene’s main camera is showing gameplay map in the background.
sure i could cover it up by giving a background image to the starting menu but that wouldn’t be efficient as the device is running 2 scences for nothing.

Summary: How do i ONLY load the starting scene?


you arent supposed to have multiple scenes in your hierachy. If so all your scenes in hierachy get loaded together.
So “remove” all the scenes in the hierachy but your menu scene should stay.
5 years to late but maybe others want to know too
