This release adds the ability to drag-and-drop instances from the Layout View to the Layers Bar to change their layer. This was supported in Construct 2 but due to an oversight we missed it in Construct 3. It's back now!

We've got a number of bug fixes as well, including a few possible crashes, and a number of improvements to the recently-released desktop build beta.

Thanks to our translation contributors we're also pleased to be able to include an in-progress Korean translation! As ever you need to enable Developer Mode to try it out. We are also currently in the process of reviewing the Spanish and Czech translations which were recently completed. Hopefully we will soon have these enabled by default!

Let us know with a thumbs up!

  • Awesome!

  • Very good to see the crash when you rename the image point is fixed thank you :D

  • nice job. Keep the releases coming

  • That shocking moment when I discover a feature in C3 that I didn't even know was already available in C2 (drag-n-drop via layer).

  • Thx for fixing Desktop NW.js export.

  • "Import effect color parameters from C2 projects correctly"

    Wow, this one is huge for me! Thanks for it and the other fixes!

  • Another update, from which I received nothing good ...Make the GooglePlay Plugin already working not only in the web environment.

      The problem with this is Google revoked access to the API from Android. Either Google need to fix it or we have to rewrite the entire plugin, and we're extremely busy right now, so it might be better to try to get Google to fix it instead.

      • Ashley, C3 is an excellent platform for creating 2D games without knowledge of programming, but you need to modify the plugin that many developers really want to see. I'll try to write to them maybe they will respond. Thank you!
