    @Ashley , Tom and Kyatric . Do you appreciate the user's suggestions applyed in Construct software? Please, see this above.

    Note: I will constantly update this topic, adding new suggestions from me and from other people (with credits).

  • Its Construct THREE! 3! Make it 3D with easy 2D interface.

  • aviata Yes, this is the spirit! Construct 3, 3 of 3D!

  • users suggestions ? xD ... most of the suggestions are already available in C2 and as for your other topic, is there a 3d plugin that enable c2 to make 3d games, yes the one you showed is the one commercial plugin that accurately enables you to make 3d games using construct 2 ... am i missing something here?

  • gamecorpstudio, which suggestions are already available in Construct 2?

  • The forums have a search function that would help answering that question.

    Please use this function and beware of the topics date when you are posting. I've already warned you about that issue.

  • We're open to suggestions, but note that:

    • we continually get far more suggestions than we can possibly reasonably address, so we cannot do everything
    • suggestions about a specific color to use are pretty irrelevant and distracting at this point, it seems totally trivial next to architectural suggestions
    • vague suggestions are pretty useless - saying things like "A bit of each good feature of Unity/Unreal Engine" does not actually suggest anything specific, what exactly are the good bits and how do you want them to work in the context of Construct 2? Otherwise I have no idea what you are talking about.
  • Here is a list of suggestions posted in this thread. Even has an open document for people to add/edit. Though the thread does try to focus on more architectural low level features that offer developers to create high level features. But there a lot of suggestions that were incorporated one way or another.

  • I really think Construct 3 should be focused on being the best 2d visual editor/visual events platform it can be. This entails:

    *Seamless building to Android and iOS

    *Improved mobile performance

    *Seamless integration with no problems using iAP, Ads, Google Play/Gamecenter

    *Major improvement to plugin support

    * New features (can't think of anything at the top of head)

    Construct 2 is a great basis for all this, but please don't waste time/effort designing for 3D. If I wanted 3D would use Unreal engine (which already has event driven support called Blueprints) or Unity 3D (which has well developed plugins for Events). Do not put yourself up against these behemoths and focus on making 2D game development the best.

    On a side note if you MUST grow past 2d games, try adding better support to creating different type of Apps (fitness, maps, social networking, etc)

    That is exactly what I think too. If something like 3D has to be, then I think isometric (2.5D) and/or Super scale ( Afterburner, Outrun, Space Harrier etc.) is much more appropriate.

  • Try Construct 3

    Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.

    Try Now Construct 3 users don't see these ads

    These are a bit general but really good suggestions. I saw other users asking for similar improvements.

    +1

    It would be interesting to see Construct 3 move towards making apps as well and not just games. I'd love to see a focus for apps too. We can make certain types of apps with Construct 2 as well, and while I think it's the best way to have Construct 3 as game development focused as Construct 2, a few features designed for app development woudn't hurt if Scirra have time to implement such.

  • 3d objects would be nice, but there are much more important features needed like isometric z-sorting and elevations, sprite distortion, level collision masks as well as images masks and more like streamlining the events system and editor, improved plugins with added features etc.

    here re also planty of suggestions already posted on the forums.

  • I would pay for a native export addition, everything same as C2, with native export for PC, iOS, Android and Consoles.

    ps. We still have a broken Linux and MAC export since NWjs is bugged (fails to load, red bar) for those platforms for ages.

  • just imagine construct event editor with unreal rendering with unity lightning system !!!!

  • Implementation of Any, ANY of the things mentioned in Bret Victors speech here: https://vimeo.com/71278954

    Literally just copying the user interfaces, the way things are presented, the high improvisational nature of simultaneous processing (some aspects of this are already implemented in the C2 debugger but in no way it is as seamless)

    UX UX UX. Please, it makes MOUNTAINS of difference.

    @Ashley, would it be offensive if I offer to pay you to watch the video? You can just say you did of course <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile"> But I'm willing to invest in this. It goes so well along many of C2's maxims of approachability, ease of use, simplicity... If this is offensive, please accept my apologies. I can pay in BTC. 50 usd?

    It's beyond me why Bret Victor says that someone "else" will build this programing environment, but in essence that means anyone can copy use it in their own work.

    Thanks
