Announcing the Construct 3 suggestions platform

Post » Thu Apr 06, 2017 1:46 pm

The new platform is not going to get the benefits the forum offers for exploring what the suggestions would entail.

Very cool that you're having this! Totally understand that there are no guarantees. I'm off to suggest via the form! :)

Maybe a suggestions forum here could clear up the clutter from the general forums, and offer a place for users to discuss and refine ideas before posting them to the suggestions page. It would also help to organize votes.

The biggest benefit to the suggestions page is it allows sorting by popularity and rank, which isn't always immediately clear on the forums. It also allows them to tag, track, and respond to ideas as a whole rather than individual posters.

It would be nice if there was a way to archive suggestions that have been tagged/responded to and refund votes. But then it would be hard to see the relative popularity of the archived suggestions. On the other hand, the way it is now earlier suggestions have a disproportionate advantage over new suggestions. Maybe logging how many votes a suggestion had at the time of archival would be of use.

Overall, it honestly it's just a distraction and additional work to moderate for them really. Feature creep by developers is already a big problem, feature creep by users is a disaster. It's a nice gesture to show Scirra cares about is users, but that can also backfire if those suggestions don't get acted upon for long periods of time. Hopefully the disclaimer is effective.
Mistakes were made.

I don't see any harm in opening discussions about specific suggestions for general discussion

Ok, cool.
Half the fun of gamedev is imagining what you can do.
People don't realise it, but the number of features that we already have is huge.

It would be much more better if you could let me add more layers in the free edition than 2

First, congrats on the bug squashing and the new version 17, I can't wait for the full version to come out as i'm going back and forth with c2.

Can we have a paste button on the construct 3 right click menu?

It would really make the event editor for mobile and tablets with no keyboard less of a hassle to use.

In the mobile version of google chrome beta on android, you can't drag actions, which is not that big of an issue but, even though you can cut and copy actions, you can't paste them making the event editor very highly counter productive to even the simplest of coding task having to have to delete an action and reselect it again just to move it wasting lot of minutes.
