Learn to code
You can also add script files, and call functions in them from scripts in the event sheet too. There's plenty of scope to be creative and conveniently start integrating event blocks and code!
There is now full documentation for the scripting feature in the new Scripting section of the manual. It covers how the feature works in Construct and also covers all the APIs (Application Program Interfaces, i.e. all the available classes and functions) comprehensively. As we continue to improve the scripting feature over time, more content will appear in the manual too.
Free edition limits

Purchase a plan to remove the limits! If you purchase before September 2nd you'll get the scripting feature at no extra cost - so now is a great time to subscribe.
Purchasing the scripting feature
Therefore the scripting feature will be sold separately. It'll cost only $20 USD/year (USA pricing) on top of a Personal subscription, equivalent to a mere $1.67/month. This means you'll be able to purchase Construct 3 with event blocks as before at an unchanged $99/year, or with both event blocks and scripting for just $119/year. This will be introduced on September 2nd. All existing subscribers at that point will get the scripting feature permanently at no extra cost, even if they cancel and re-subscribe - so purchase before then to save! We'll announce more details about pricing for other plans and currencies soon. And don't forget as ever the subscription covers all other features and export options, making it a strongly competitive option versus many other comparable tools on the market.
Events will improve too
More to come
This is only just the beginning! We have lots more features planned involving scripting, including autocomplete, more APIs, and library classes - as well as other updates for the event system - and they'll appear soon as we keep up with our unmatched regular update schedule. Stay tuned for more updates coming in future, and be sure to pick up a plan by September 2nd to get scripting at no extra cost!
