Was reading the C3 announcement and congratulation with it almost being done
Anyway as I was reading it you write the following in the beginning:
[quote:dwgza59q]We aim to redefine what is possible with the web. So we built the Construct 3 editor itself for the browser.
Construct 3 works in Chrome on Windows, Mac, Linux, and Chrome OS. There's nothing to install — it's as simple as visiting a website. There are too many new features to list here,
Personally Im not a fan of working in browsers and only use NWjs in C2 for previewing, so im probably not as excited as you are or as many other users might be. I like working in programs especially designed for a specific purpose, which might very well be the case for C3, but for me, it just feels right with a program you start and do your work in etc. Anyway what I would like to know, if you can elaborate, what are the benefits of what you write above in the announcement for me(us) as user? You give the impression that its something new and exciting, but you don't really share what we as users should be so excited about, for now having to use a browser rather than an installed application?
I read some other users concerned with doing this as 3rd party problems could affect things. In C2 we have and still experience problems with our creations due to browser issues that was outside your domain to fix. But having it affect our creations is one thing. But wont you run the risk of it suddenly adding problems or limitations which could affect the editor it self?
As many others (I think) Im not fan of the subscription payment method, but do understand why you would prefer doing it that way, but again for me I like programs and once you have bought them they are yours, subscriptions always feels like im leasing something without owning it and I don't like that in general. So was wondering if you plan on making an one time buy offline version? (I know C3 works offline) but a version that doesn't work online in the browser but one that works simply like C2 does now and where you pay a one time price?
Anyway looking forward to trying the beta.
