A Construct 3 Suggestion that will improve performance.
Salman_Shh made a great suggestion on the Construct 3 Suggestions Website.
For those who don't know what the Frame Rate Lock is, it is the ever famous suggestion for Construct 2 that wasn't implemented. Basically, this feature will cap the FPS to whatever frame limit you want.
This is a feature that most game engines have to improve performance on weaker devices, make performance or GFX options, or manage FPS entirely.
Benefits of this feature
The benefit of this feature, is that we can control the FPS limit, scale and improve the performance of Construct Games to our liking. This is a good way to increase performance by lessening the load of the game from the redundant frames, if the extra graphical frames isn't needed in your game.
This is incredibly useful, for example, Mobile Games. Most professional Mobile Games lock their game FPS to around 24FPS to 30FPS, this is to improve performance & battery life and reduce power consumption.
Most professional games do this, I don't see why we shouldn't take advantage of this optimization too.
The devices that are most benefited
The devices that can help improve performance as an option
This is a popular feature that most Construct 2 users longed for but this feature was denied. But since Construct 3 has more support because of its better editor & runtime and great subscription pricing. We can finally get features that would or are impossible to have on Construct 2.
One of the important features is this one. Please, again, vote for this. Comment too about the things that you think might help the thread.

Thanks a lot. Have a nice day and happy game development!
