Some things I'd LOVE to see in Construct.

[list:g9v1kdsj]
[color=green:g9v1kdsj]Allow zero decimals (eg. 0,50 and 0,25) with 3D Box Depth

a 3D Sphere or 3D Cylinder objects to accompany 3D Box (and allow creation of complex geometry)
[/color:g9v1kdsj]

[quote:2mkzow29]Ability to randomize easily with one event, eg. "Randomly spawn object inside window" [/quote:2mkzow29]
I think this is easy enough with 'Create object at random(640), random(480)', no?

[quote:2mkzow29]Ability to receive data from a file in the internet, eg. if I'd like to show how many users have downloaded my game through a .txt in my FTP[/quote:2mkzow29]
There's already the Download object that can grab a file off the internet.

[quote:2mkzow29]Enhanced 1px physics object support for realistic sand and other purposes[/quote:2mkzow29]
I think this is called fluid dynamics and I don't know much about it, but it'd be great to be able to simulate stuff like water in Construct. Very interesting idea, but difficult. I think a recent 3D game achieved this in 3D so it must be possible in 2D.

[quote:2mkzow29]"Bloom" pixel shader object for over-brightening certain areas without the use of complex effect combinations [/quote:2mkzow29]
Blur Horizontal + Blur Vertical + Glow?

[quote:2mkzow29]3D Mesh[/quote:2mkzow29]
I'd like this too, but with 3D you quickly would run in to 3D development issues. In a top down game with a character with 8 direction movement, if the player walks up a slope, how does the movement know to move the player closer to the camera? This is a whole category of difficult problems that need to be solved to make what would eventually make Construct 3D... if we ever get that far.

You're right :P

But at least the ability to scale 3D Boxes more by adding support for zero decimals like 0.1 and 0.25 would be nice, seeing as my game's sprites are made small to offer a bigger world to the player.

Also thanks for all info on the objects :D

Yeah using decimals works for me, but apparently not for everyone - it's a known bug awaiting fix.

Also, what I meant with "3D Mesh" was just the 3D Box object with other shapes too in a dropdown menu, not a model or anything. Just a simple cylinder would help to make lots of new buildings and whatever using them.
