Hello! A friend showed this program to me as an alternative to software I currently use (Multimedia Fusion). Thus far, it's a very well made program, however: one thing is missing that I would really like to see implemented and I don't think it be out of the question: a point of perspective for pseudo 3D games.
Going through the forum posts around here is telling me that I need to explain myself fully, so let me get started
What I am suggesting:
The point of perspective behavior/object is exactly that: it serves as a point of perspective that sprites can accurately scale/move in, giving a sense of 3D movement. This has been a common feature in 2D arcade games since the 80's and adds a classic charm to games that modern 3D games oddly lack
you can see this effect in games such as:
Punch out!! (arcade)
and many more!
What I am NOT suggesting:
-Actual 3D/3D mesh support. Construct is a 2D engine! Often when pseudo 3D is brought up, arguments start about adding real 3D support and quickly derails. Please do not.
-any sort of mode7/sprite distortion effect
I cannot stress this enough. this is not what I'm asking for
What the object/behavior should do
the point of perspective would essentially act like a camera. it would be position-able, rotatable, etc. this 'camera' would automatically scale sprites based on their z position. This z position can be mapped to the prebuilt movements such as the 8 directional or even the physics behavior.
-the object should automatically sort objects by their z position/hide them before they take too much cpu to render
-to be able to adjust elements such as depth and angle
Let me know what you guys think!
