3D Model support

New releases and general discussions.

Post » Sat Jan 12, 2008 1:47 am

I searched the forum and couldn't find anything on this. Does or will Construct have support for 3D character models?

For a long time, I've been wanting to make a 2D game with 3D player models (aka "2.5 D") like Contra: Shattered Soldier.

Is there any way to do this currently or can you only use sprites at the moment?

Note that I am not asking whether if 2.5 D itself is possible since the car demo on this site certainly proves that. However, the only thing missing is the support for 3D models instead of sprites (for the car, or in my case, the playable character), which would make it perfect for what I have in mind.

The engine supports this, but no plugins have been written that do this yet, early days for that still. The 3D box you see in the car demo is a proof of concept: it's just boxes, but it shows you can put 3D things in to the 2D world.

Eventually, some time after the 1.0 release, I definitely want to do this though.

Ah, I see. Sounds good to me. Thank you very much for answering my question. It looks like lack of immediate support is not something I'm going to have to worry about while using this program. I'm already liking this project more than various other game creation programs or engines I've tried in the past. I look forward to the 1.0 and subsequent releases and hope this project reaches its full potential in the near future. Godspeed! :D
