  • great job. I love the distortion effect.. that's great added functionality!

  • Editor hierarchy setup is a great addition! I really hope it will be possible in the future to setup a character or objects in the editor and assign the whole hierarchy a tag or something. And then at runtime be able to spawn the whole "tag" where relative positions and everything spawns in just as it was setup in the editor. That would be super powerful and make characters and UI so much easier to make and remove the need for a ton of events :D

    1. Create a hierarchy in editor and assign a tag

    2. Creating the tag at runtime will spawn parent object and all children and positions everything the same way it is setup in the editor.

    So it functions like a more powerful container where you can use multiple instances of the same object as children and setup child positions relative to parent right in the editor.

    Anyway, keep up the great work!

    • Yep, same hope for that feature here ...

      This feature would be a enormous timesaver and code-shrinker =)

    • 100% behind this. Being able to spawn child objects based on their relative positions, as opposed to them defaulting to the parent object's X/Y, would be a huge time-saver. I've had to create some fairly cumbersome functions to do this currently; having the hierarchy system be a little closer to other engines' prefab systems would go a long way.

  • The editor-built-in hierarchy is definitely going to help save time! All the way from Sprite-button's text wrapping, to complicated Menu/Leaderboard items, to Skeletons! Thanks for this Construct'ive feature!

  • wow thank you

  • Thanks so much for the new stable release!

  • excellent! thank you

  • Does this cover the Play Audio from URL? I can't find it anywhere in the video, and can't get it to work.

    • It is present for me. The action is called "Add remote URL" (At the bottom of the action window, under web.) in the Audio plugin.

      • Sorry, I know it's there... But I can't get it to play anything. It isn't mentioned in the above video, there is no example template for it, and it is only briefly explained in the manual.

        I like examples.

  • thank you

  • Thank you, guys, Was waiting for this.

  • We can use sprite distortion to make basic 3D graphics! This is huge!
