  • Hello there dear C3 community,

    I´ve been creating games for a long time now and I was using C2 around 4/5 years ago.

    I just created some simple games for friends and some for the ios and android store, but nothing really hard to make.

    I came back and decided to start a serious project and I wanted to ask some experts or people that created big projects, if there is something that I´ve to do before even starting creating my game? like for example I never used families and discovered later that they are super important and timesaving, are there other things liek that that can save my time and before it becomes a mess of sprites and stuff?

    Would like to hear some useful tips, thanks for your time :)

  • Functions are very useful to make event sheets neat and clean.

    Arrays helpful to store huge data.

    Dictionary is helpful to save all variables data at once.

  • Try Construct 3

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

  • Read about families, containers, functions, global layers, arrays, dictionaries, timelines etc. Knowing how to use these features will save you many days/weeks of needless work.

    Create families early! If you are adding your first enemy, create Enemies family straight away and add behaviors and instance variables only to the family. Upgrading a bunch of objects to a family later on will be a difficult and boring task.

    Name your objects properly and organize them in folders.

    Comment your code.

    Avoid using hard-coded values and "magic numbers".

    Back up your work at least once a day.

    And finally, check out this post with great tips from Fib:
