In this release we've done more work to refine the Timeline bar and improve its usability and reliability. Other changes include some improvements for 8 Direction's new 'Allow sliding' mode, and a new 'Is effect enabled' condition. We also have a new Alchemist example you can check out.

We're aiming to get to a stable release in the next couple of weeks, so the focus is now on bug fixes and reliability. Stay tuned for more updates!

  • Ohhhh mama! The Timelines editor just keeps on getting better and better :)

    Looking forward to the next Stable Release as well!

    As always, thanks Scirra! Keep up the great work :)

    EDIT: Just spent some time, and played around with the new Alchemist Example. It seems like a solid base for a crafting system. I always learn something new within the provided examples.

  • Love the update and new example! Now if we can get an On Exit Collision condition 🤓🙏

  • Thanks for the awesome update!

  • Construct 3 Will recieve more 3d updates???

  • will the debugger improvements be in for the next stable? I am most excited for that!

  • Thanks
