Not sure if this is correct forum location as there is no Construct 3 section yet ;)

This is a copy of my comment that I posted on: https://www.scirra.com/blog/155/the-future-of-construct

Could you do a manhours estimate for Construct 3 and then do a kickstarter?
I'm sure the community would be more than happy to pre-order a version of Construct 3.
Considering that it is just Ash and Thomas doing the programming, with enough funds you may be able to hire additional staff to get it done faster.
Just my thoughts :)

I'd definitely back it, I want C3 to be the final piece needed before Construct rules the 2D game world (and maybe 2.5D/simple 3D? ;) ) :D
"Construct 4 lets YOU make advanced games! (but not play them)" Construct Classic - Examples Kit Dropbox is a pile of trash and if you need my old files PM me! :)

We don't like pre-orders tbh, more interested in getting something with value out the door before we take any money for it.

@Tom I understand, I am exactly same myself. I do not want people to pay until I have made the items they ordered. Sure, in very different field, but still.

Good luck with the new version. Are you going to add a new forum maybe to collect all the C3/future discussions?

I think it's a bit early for that, but at some point yes :)

@Tom Why not now? That way all discussions can be contained in one place. I had to spend a bit of time thinking where I should post this thread initially.
Now that http://construct3.com is available, it would be a prime time to put up a forum.

@Tom I come from an industry where "Fast Tracking" is the norm. If it wasn't done yesterday, than it is already late. Millions to 10's of Millions of dollars are lost per day when there is a problem, so throwing money at issues to get them resolved quickly happens a lot.

Note: I deleted my other post as I wrote the wrong reply to the wrong quote….. :)

And if it is too much effort to create a new forum altogether, another idea is to create a new category here at this forum. C3 or future additions suggestions.

@helena agreed, this would be the fastest approach.
