I would pay a lot more for Construct 3 if it had a native export option for:

PC, iOS & Android. The rest can be optional or 3rd party... so it's less work for Scirra. They would only need to maintain 3x native export compatibility. :)

This is the biggest demand feature from Construct 2's user-base for so long..

It could also be a paid subscription service or whatever but C3 needs it to be complete.



Hell yeah, I would pay extra too..

i might be wrong about this im saying, but c2 only has html5 supporting atm, which is 1 native exporting option to maintain, wouldn't be 3x + the html5 more work to maintain?

dont get me wrong, i want native from C2 i mean as you said, its the only thing, we all C2 users want. but if that means, killing updates delivery as scirra got us used with by now, id prefer be a stable and even premium third parties as phonegap, side not to this: i dont use phonegap, not because its not free for more then 1 project, but because, its weird to customize the icons, and other project details, plus the game tests i did with it, where never compatible with more then 400 devices, as where XDK you only click and select C2 style basically, and google play atleast for Android shows over 1000 devices. which is a huge difference.


P.S even if all APK/IOS third parties or native drops, there are still plenty of html5 compilers on wide internet that are fast, and simple to use. one i can remember now from top of my head that is also free, is html5compiler or something like that its a git little project. plus there for android is also the androidsdk way of doing it. dont know for ios now.


so it wold not be a big issue after all. but wold be great to have the "native" exporters in C2 or still have the XDK support. Wold not require the users to get extra skills in their mind.

I've also wanted native exporters. I've given a really good explanation why Scirra should do this before.
But it don't think that's gonna happen. We all want it, but apparently its too much work or "isn't even better" or something else. Well, to grow a company you have to take chances. :)

I've learned that years ago.
