make payment subscription just for CLOUD SERVICES

Post » Wed Feb 01, 2017 7:11 pm

instead of a payment subscription for using Construct 3, we should only pay a subscription for using CLOUD SERVICES such as save files and exporting, Contruct 3 should be a one time payment as Construct 2, i know this decision was made to pay the servers, but im 100% sure only few of us will use it, it will be better just to pay once for the use of the tool ratter than the entire server's service.

I was very curious how can it handle the file management, besides if you import mp3 sound files, how is the browser can convert into m4a and ogg?

+1 to OP

There can still be a one time fee (at discount for existing owners, preferably) for C3 and every few years for the new C4, C5, etc.

Summary:

- subscription fee for users who opt to use the web-based IDE/cloud functionality (not most, I'd assume)

- keep personal/business licenses the same

- one time fee for new versions of Construct (at discount, for existing owners) every 2, 3 or 4 years (3 seems about right... I'd like 4, but I'm sure Scirra would prefer 2)

- if you don't want to "upgrade" to the new Construct every 2/3/4 years, guarantee at least security/bug fix updates to any version of Construct until program end of life (say.. 6 years after launch?)
