Don't miss out on the latest and greatest new features in Construct 3.
In this release we're pleased to introduce the new 3D camera plugin! This object lets you move the camera around the layout in 3D. (Note it only affects 3D layers.) You can use it for something as simple as slightly adjusting the viewport in an otherwise 2D game, or go as far as building a simple first-person-shooter (FPS) style game, as the new 'First-person shooter' template demonstrates. This adds a lot of creative possibilities and we can't wait to see what you can make with it! Just remember that while the camera can move in 3D, the rest of Construct still largely works in 2D, such as with collisions. However this still allows for quite a lot of scope using 2D gameplay with 3D graphics.
This release also adds a few other smaller features that should also come in handy when using 3D camera, such as the ability for the Car behavior to turn while stopped (useful for controlling the player in an FPS style game), and a Draw order setting for layers that can help make sure transparency works as expected. Other than that there's a few bug fixes, and stay tuned for more updates!
