Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

So...it's been a long time since the last construct update -- almost 4 weeks :o 8-) . In the past, those big delays often preceed some exciting new features.

What do you think is coming up?

While I agree with Arima that the big reason the hold off is due to the holidays. I think r200 is going to be some form modularity.

How do you expect modularity to work?

Whoops, guess I was out of the loop. :roll:

Modularity would be great, though I'd like to see search get an overhaul. Search multiple sheets? Highlight instances? Regex searching? Yes please... 8-)

Modularity, it's a massive feature but honestly it's really hard to think of stuff C2 can't do... It's less of a "What's next?" and more "What's left?"

In an ideal world, maybe a visual interface for arrays.

EDIT//
@tiam - it'd be great if we could select an object and have a "see all events associated with" option.

:idea: Oooh...never though of that before. That would be awesome. 8-)

So, kind of like a merge feature?

Adding to modularity, I think a built-in search for code examples you can just drag and drop into your project sort of thing would be really cool.

The best way for modularity to work is for CAPX to be packed into forms that reflect Plugins and Behaviours. Importing exporting isn't ideal as large changes and updates to CAPX as libs.

The CAPX would have Functions and Variabls that could be hidden or exposed. Maybe "global" would be accessible for the object and sub vars hidden. Root functions could be Object associated while group sub functions are private.

However I'm only speculating that r200 is modularity. But all the other major points on the road map are released. The asset store is on the way. r200 is a major mile stone that's coming on us soon. C2 would require architect changes. Starting at r175 is a good time for this.
