THANK GOD I FOUND YOU GUYS!!! :shock: I have been searching everywhere for a fully featured Game Engine such as this one with an active community! I will be honest, I suck at languages, both human and machine, so a game creator like this one is a godsend. The only thing that is missing that I know I will need for my project is networking support, but I can wait for that. It will probably take me a long time to make the game itself work anyway. I LOVE OPEN SOURCE PROJECTS SO MUCH!

Wow thanks for joining our little community, as for the Network support its already avaliable via Python but there will be a Plugin after 1.0 ver. of Construct. "fully featured" well its under beta so expect bugs and its not fully featured (they plan to give more plugins).

"Little community" you say? I say I see enormous potential for something great! And of course I will have to learn to use the software before I attempt to make anything. I learned that lesson with Game Maker (those fuckers can DIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEE). The problem with game maker is that nobody gives a damn about 3d capabilities. No, they want to stick with their Pokemon and shit fan games, that's fine with me. If they would stop recoding the thing and just focus on extending the 3D capabilities. Seriously!

Anyway, yeah. I'll definitely be spreading the word about you guys, including adding a news post about you guys on my website, http://www.01chan.org

...

Yes I'm a pathetic looser who owns a *chan. Don't worry though, the users who frequent it are cool. Just let me know if you don't want me to.

One qestion though, this program does support full 3d, right?

Welcome. :) But, sorry, the program doesn't support 3D at all, really. The most it has for 3D is the 3D box object, but that's all it displays... a box. I think somebody said they were working on a 3D plugin a little while ago, though.

I'm inclined to say two things here.

One, he may have gotten the idea of it being 3D capable from a few of the demonstrations (including the GTA-style one on the site.)

Two, I would hope you didn't advertise on a chan site unless it were one about technology and/or games. The kind of people that frequent them are more likely to do harm than good.

Anyways, welcome!

Welcome to the forums :) Construct is primarily a 2D game development tool - but you can do some very basic 3D stuff with the 3D box object. I'm not really sure if Construct will eventually turn in to a full 3D tool, partly because I'm not sure it's possible a decent tool like that can exist, and secondly the barrier of entry to 3D development is much, much higher than for 2D.
