(Note: Construct is an engine designed for 2D games. This is NOT a request for full 3D support or polygonal objects!)
As long as there have been 2d games in the market, there have always been efforts to simulate 3D space. In older games, coders drew sprites of multiple sizes to simulate depth with moderate success. Over time, new hardware that supported sprite scaling and rotation allowed coders to create a smooth seamless 3D effect With Construct's support for rotation and scaling of sprites, it would be great if construct supported a system that would simulate the distance of an object. allowing the user to create pseudo 3D effects and games. Technically, this is already possible using good scripting. Having official support of this would allow easier editing and faster implementation.
-Pseudo 3D games such as Space Harrier and Outrun
-Easy 3D menu buttons that pop out at the viewer
-3D carousel menus as seen on OSX and many other platforms
-a quick and easy 3D effect for 2D pinball and breakout-type games
The behavior creates the effect of a camera, arranging chosen sprites in a way that creates the illusion of depth. The 3d camera would sort the order of sprites based on how close they are to the simulated camera and place them based on the chosen sprites xyz coordinates, which can be gathered from it's posiition on the canvas or by it's variables . The objects would scale based on their distance from the camera: The maximum size of a spite gets as it comes closer the camera is up to the viewer. Once an object is considered behind the camera (not in it's field of view), the behavior will hide the object automatically, reducing slowdown
The behavior would not warp a sprite or background to make it appear in perspective. This is an effect; not a behavior.
This sounds a lot like the new Z elevation feature available since r132, which allows objects to be moved towards and away from the camera scaling according to perspective, so marking this suggestion as "Shipped". If Z elevation does not cover the feature you imagined you can post another suggestion, but as mentioned on some other 3D related suggestions, we don't currently intend to add any more 3D-related features at this time.
