Personally, I have absolutely no interest in C2 attempting to integrate 3D, as I think it will put too much strain on the engine. I'm hoping Ashley will agree.
I would be interested to see a straw poll of how many users are actually really interested in this, because it reminds of the calls for the Spritefont+ plugin to be integrated, even though barely 400 people downloaded the plugin.
It is sometimes difficult to gauge accurately if something is really of interest without some quantitative measure to look at.
Just my 2 cents.
i think ashley is jumping for joy right now... with this plugin (if it get more stable more fuctional and more polished) c2 will have something that the competitors dont have. that means more fame that means more downloads and that means more incomes. thats the final goal of every project right? unity was only a 3d engine and then they start supporting 2d as well. i dont think that they are stupid. they try to take a greater number of new customers by their side and give a new "toy" to the existing buyers/users to play with. ITS BUISINESS
And maybe now you dont interested about 3d but who knows in the future? Maybe you will. Its good always to have more than you need from a product, cause you have alternatives. and the power of choice is something unpriceable.
