After a few software updates, it was time for another website update. We have made a survey for the community about professional version of MCreator for commercial use too.
Commercial version survey
As this one is quite important for both us and you - the users of MCreator, we have decided to make this the main point of this article.
In the past, we have been asked a lot about an option to create unbranded mods and mods that can be used commercially (ads on the website of the mod, AdFly, ...). As MCreator is free, our decision was to keep it free as long as mods made by the community are free and non-commercial too.
We could change this by providing a commercial license (version) of MCreator. Users that would like to use MCreator for commercial purposes and would like to have more commercially and professionally oriented features would simply pay for the commercial license. Such license could include other services such as mod update server, more storage, no ads on the website, collaborative work support too. MCreator, as is, would stay free, but we would offer a commercial version as well.
We made the survey to find out how much interest there is for such version so we get some insight on whether we should move things in the direction of option for the commercial version.
Each answer will help us decide on how to shape the future of MCreator better
Now back to the website update. You most likely noticed that we have changed the front page a bit. The image slider has been removed and a bigger Download button has been added, so the users can now easily find the download of MCreator. Issue tracker categories and MCreator versions are now clickable. By clicking on the MCreator version or the issue category, all issues tagged with this version or category are shown, so users can now find the tickets they are looking for faster.
New wiki section pages were introduced too. These section pages group similar wiki pages together. You can jump between pages in the same section from the wiki pages themselves too. Wiki homepage has been improved with a new design and some new links were added to find important pages easier.
Bug with comments being posted multiple times in some cases was fixed and another comment bug with pagination of comments not working after posting a comment was fixed.
We have improved the design and user experience of the website under maintenance page too, but we hope you didn't notice this one and you won't have to :)
What is next?
We are working on some new interesting surprises for you, so stay tuned on our social networks for the announcements! We have some nice plans for MCreator 1.8.2 update too. Stay tuned and don't forget to help us by filling out the survey and providing us with your aspects on the commercial version of MCreator.
