For example people frequently ask for 3D, but there are good reasons why we're not going to do that. So it's not as simple as simply following what people ask for, we weigh it up with several other factors.

I'll just leave this here:
See I just suggested that two years ago, but it will simply not fit the licensing model that scirra is going for now - thus I dont think they will ever allow colaboration features in fusion 3 that allow you to host the editor itself on localhost.
It is more likely that even if they do that - they will do exactly what the people replying to my old thread said that they fear and do not want - cloud only + rental. Scirra could make one editor talk to another editor perhaps - but both users must be subscribed and be online in order to collaborate then.
I said it would be great for game jam events- because I was assuming that the editor will be on localhost and others would get access to it via their web browsers alone - without having to sign up to scirra and do all the other stuff people hate.
That is something that superpowers will always have over construct3- an editor that has none of the restrictions that people replying to my thread back then had fear of
And the ability to collaborate with others in real time - free of charge - without relying on a third party service
Reading the comments from back then now is actually kind of hilarious I was assuring people that they wouldnt have to need to rely on dropbox to collaborate - that is exactly what Ashley decides to do
I was assuring people that it doesnt have to be rent model - scirra does exactly that.
The software being html5 does NOT mean that all those things need to be the way they are in c3.
Superpowers is a living proof of that - but superpowers is a very different beast. If you want to support it, its a choice. You need to learn a scripting language, so it's not aimed at the same userbase as construct
