In my opinion, the following should not be acceptable anymore in C3:

Scirra wil not add that things because many users like Rexrainbow make good job adding they addons for free.
for example Construct 2 without many well maded third party plugins is...

Well that's the point, right? That sort of stuff doesn't work anymore if instead of charging once you suddenly charge the same amount yearly. You should be able to provide the most important features yourself then.

Yeah, users were tired of begging and started making themselves... Not quite the ideal solution, but was "understandable" since C2 was cheaper compared to other engines.

But the users that made plugins are now leaving because of the subscription model, and that weight will be on Scirra's shoulders.

@Burvey you might be right about that. They are probably saving this up for a future reveal. I hope so :P

I feel like maybe its too obvious a question... The Scirra devs are probably thinking "Of course we are going to provide that, just sit back and wait for us to announce things in our own time and stop trying to pre-empt all our good news!".

I mean it seems really unlikely that official plugins for iAPs and ads would get upgraded and become officially maintained by Scirra while plugins for connecting to GameCentre and GooglePlay Services would be left to third party solutions.

If Scirra maintain plugins for GooglePlay, GameCentre, maybe Steam?, maybe WinPhone?, iAPs, some different ad networks, that would easily be worth the annual subscription price imo.

I think its likely this will happen, because that seemed to be the original vision for C2. C2 has official plugins for those things, its just that in recent times they weren't maintained and users came to rely on third party options that worked better, I guess because Scirra was prioritizing their time and energy on building C3.

I must admit I was one of the people who was all in an uproar about a subscription payment model. But the Scirra blog post about the new mobile app build system, and updated iAP/ad plugins sounds super awesome! Ill be purchasing C3 as soon as its available.

@TGeorgeMihai Thanks for those links. I was lucky enough for Cluckles to get reviewed on a few different websites, but these ones are new to me :P

Id rather not discuss Cluckles here TGeorgeMihai, just to keep the thread on topic. Post in my thread here if you'd like to chat more about it.

Cheers

I must have missed the updated iAP/ad plugins bit. I've seen a few people referencing it in the forums but I don't remember seeing it mentioned in the blog posts.

From the blog post:
We'll also provide brand-new IAP and ad plugins for iOS and Android, as well as building and maintaining the underlying Cordova plugins ourselves. This should minimise any difficulties with configuration or third-party libraries.

Still no response to this question @Ashley , @Tom ?
I see you guys answering lots of other questions about C3, why not this one?

Just wondering if you'd also be maintaining new plugins for connecting to GooglePlay Services and Apple's GameCentre for achievements and leaderboards?
