Anywhere to suggest features for C3

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

I know C3 is a long way off, but I was curious if there was a place to make a formal feature request for C3?

This may very well have been asked for before, but I'd like to see more modular eventing on a per object basis. For example, I create a bubble. When I click that bubble, I want it to play a popping animation. Right now in C2 I have to determine the instance of the actual bubble clicked upon and write the popping event in the main event sheet. But if I could create that bubble with the click event self contained, I could drop it as many times as I want in a layout, and it would do the same thing every time and not have to write the event for it in the main layout. I could also re-use that same bubble in a different layout and not have to re-write the event logic., I know we could build a module event then include it in whatever layout we use the bubble in, but as a developer it seems to me it'd be cleaner if it were contained at the object level itself. if that makes any sense...

I just moved from Stencyl and missed this feature in C2 (It's called "Actor Behaviors" that can be written in Stencyl and reused everywhere).

@wizaerd You mentioned "Module Events". What's this? Is this something that could help me here?

Basically it means creating an event sheet that contains specific events for an object or a piece of logic or even generic routines you use in all event sheets, but can then be included in other event sheets for use.
