Construct 3 Subscription Fee Or Buy (Pay Once) Vote

    BUY!!!

    what about addons you buy for it?

    do you have to rent them as well?

    You pretty much lose access to all of your investment once you miss a payment

    I'm thinking add-ons won't be available for the web version. I mean, I could be wrong, but it seems like it wouldn't be a thing. I'm thinking those would be available with the desktop version, which may or may not be subscription based. They already said that the desktop version will be available because the web version won't have some of those available features. I'm guessing plug-ins are one of them.

    Of course, I'm only guessing. We won't know til maybe next week or the weeks after that.

    Think about Warcraft and how it works.

    You buy items there, but you can't use them without a subscription.

    The case here would allow for use in the free version most probably since its the export that matters.

    That's a very interesting and very important topic to talk about. I'll hope Scirra provides information on this in the upcoming news.

    Scirra (and maybe the consultants they may have hired) thinks its a viable and sustainable business model. This thread is a bit of fun, but its a poll of under a 100 users

    the proportion is significant, I suppose the ratio would be maintained if the survey is higher

    Forex is complicated and very volatile at the moment which is why we've only announced USD pricing.

    Everyone will have to play our strategy game when we finish it. Then they will all understand forex.

    I'm curious to know if that will be a limited-time offer or not.

    If I continue to use C2 for another year after the release of C3, will I still be able to get it at 50% off?

    The direction we're going is that you can exercise your 50% discount whenever you want, this year, or next year etc.

    That's good to know. I must have missed that. Personally, I'm not too bothered by the change in pricing model.

    Of course, I would prefer to buy it than rent it. But, as long as the new features are worth it, I will consider it.

    Unfortunately, I haven't been "wow'd" yet with the information dribble. Hopefully, the coming weeks will change that.

    I'm guessing that's probably why they are stalling... so you can be wow'd in the coming weeks!

    The proportion is nowhere near significant when the poll is: pay $99 per year or $120 flat fee. What would you expect the result to be?

    I asked Clickteam to confirm if Fusion 3 will be subscription based as well.

    One of the main developers (Marv) has confirmed that it will not be subscription based like construct3

    https://community.clickteam.com/threads ... post714137

    They are already talking about what's going on here and bracing their server for the flood of construct2 users <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing">

    So far the only hope for scirra is that construct 3 will come out a month or two before fusion 3, in that period of time if by some miracle they manage to change people's views on the whole license thing (which seems to be the main issue for most users here) - it might not be as bad

    It will be interesting to see how things develop. I see that this community has a number of very loyal users and that the company has experience with going against the tide . hats off for that. I will be very impressed if this turns out to be a success! The technology itself is exciting- the editor being pure html5 makes a lot of sense and imo is a brilliant step towards making it run everywhere. I got excited about it running on mobile. But the price and the type of license still does not justify what we get from it, when you pit it against the competition - both game maker and clickteam fusion have a better deal. What else is in that editor that makes scirra so confident? It makes me want to wait and see what will be revealed.

    I think that this voting thread would be more fair if you still had to pay for major version upgrades. Paying once for a lifetime does not make sense , but paying rent makes even less sense. I would rather vote for something in the middle - pay for major version upgrades that bring new features that are worth it. So pay once for 3, then pay upgrade fee to bump up to 3.5 and so on

    Which is a better product, C2 or Fusion 2.5? Someone is another thread said C2 was better, but failed to explain why. Fusion 3 is looking very promising from what I've read.
