@Ashley,

Thank you for the response, and I totally appreciate your focus on 2D. I know it isn't on Scirra's priority list, but is there enough flexibility built into the new SDK that a third-party developer could build their own 3D renderer in the layout editor?

At least at first, there won't be. There are lots of non-obvious problems, such as you can't currently pass Z positions to the renderer, because there's no need for them - everything is 2D right now.

@Ashley,

Sounds good, and thank you for the update. I'm still looking forward to using C3 as a 2D tool, and I have my fingers crossed for the future. :)

I'm too using 3D on C2 and serves many purposes on 2D projects too.


Hello @Ashley, My name is Costumer and I'm so disappointed with C3 announcements right now.
Maybe my mistake not choosing unity in the first place but you know the standard. Great visual scripting and logic on C2.
I kiss my main project goodbye though :/

Besides crying, I have a question.
I don't understand, The creator of the biggest game with C2 (Next penelope) moved to Unity and u seem to not care at all.
Do you care to have great games with C2/C3, a million flapybirds clones, or you see it like an educational tool ?

@stefanos,

Although I agree that it would be awesome to have 3D in C3, I don't think questions like this that are designed to elicit an angry response are helping our case.

Ashley and Tom have been pretty clear that they are trying to keep the scope of this project manageable. You and I have both being using the C2 for a long time, and we need to respect their decision to not risk breaking C3 by promising features that they can't immediately deliver.

I was probably too emotional i don't want to sound rude. But still, I want to know what are they thinking for C3. From what I read on the forums most of the"veterans" seem disappointed. Cause I assume they love C2 and they would happily love C3 if there is a purpose of its existence. I don't believe everyone is a 13 year old who cant understand whats feasible and whats not. But people like me are disappointment (I believe) because Scirra spend so much time on features nobody really needed that much (with some exceptions).
I just want to clearly understand their view. I respect their work and time and I love C2 for what it is. But If C3 inst what many of us dreamed to be at least open all the doors so we can create/mod it ourselves.

There is no need to mention 3D, guys just forget about it.
They committed a long time ago that the software will only be designed for 2D creations.
Best thing to do is use a gamdev engine that is designed for 3D.

There isn't any reason that a third-party developer couldn't create a set of 3D add-ons for C3. It looks like @X3M isn't interested in porting Babylon unless/until there exists a capability to render 3D in the layout editor. I haven't heard back from @QuaziGNRLnose about Q3D, but I know that he put years into its development, and I totally get why he would be reluctant to redo all of his work for C3.

In order for the 3D add-ons to happen for C3, they will need to come from someone in the community...

the prospect of making them myself is really, really, really daunting...

...it would take years, and I don't think my family would like the idea too much.

ugh.
