MCreator survey - PRO version of MCreator

MCreator Survey - Paid version of MCreator

Based on the results of our first survey on the PRO version of MCreator, we decided to make another one, this time with more specific questions.

We believe that the community is the one that should help us shape the future. MCreator, as is, would stay free, but we would offer a PRO version too, just to clear this up first :) And we won't limit free version in any way that would limit the possibilities of mod making itself and we wouldn't nerf existing features of MCreator.

Each answer will help us decide on how to shape the future of MCreator better

 

Based on your responses on the first survey, we have decided to make an estimate of how our PRO version would look like. Our current planned features of paid version are (of course they are subject to change based on your recommendations in the survey):

Planned features for a paid version

MCreator software:

  • Option to release mods under a custom license
  • Option to export debranded mods (without "Made with MCreator" in the mod description and links to the website)
  • Option for collaborative work in groups with version control
  • Possible option to become part of a beta testing program

MCreator website:

  • A shorter delay between opening two tickets on our issue tracker
  • Option to disable ads on the website
  • More disk space for mod page files
  • Profile badge

Why an annual subscription model?

Our current idea is to go with the annual subscription model. This is because many of these features such require us to host additional servers to make these work. It would not be possible to make this without a subscription model as we can't afford to host these servers indefinitely without at least annual income from the users who use these services. The same goes with more disk space and extended support for such users.

 

We are looking forward to the results of the survey as we see a paid version of MCreator as an option to get more resources to hire more developers and dedicate more existing development time for MCreator. This way we can fix bugs faster and add more new features.

And stay tuned for next MCreator release, as we have something very big ready for you and we are leaving hints already ;)

How much would this version cost, like the price range? Because i have always wanted the group feature, me and a few friends would love to be able to work on the mod and test it as a group. If the price is reasonable i will definitely buy it for me and my buddies.

Sounds cool, but I would rather buy it once and keep it rather than a subscription. Make sure that there is a free version though. Give the paid version more workspaces though.

There is going to be one. Quote from MCreator Web Page: "we won't limit free version in any way that would limit the possibilities of mod making itself and we wouldn't nerf existing features of MCreator."

I must say I am a bit dissapointed in Pylo's decision. Mcreator was meant (I thought) to be a free mod creator and to promote creativity in the minecraft community. Making a paid version for commercial distribution, thats fine actually, but having to pay for features like collaborative groups and group chats is dissapointing. The collaboration we have been asking for long before a paid version of mcreator was planned, and making it a paid item wouldn't be fun. Many of the mod creators are under the age of 18 and either dont have the ability to pay or dont have the funds to pay for a paid Mcreator version, especially a subscription one. I would severely recommend not adding new mod features like extra customization or collaboration only for the paid version.

For collaboration support, we need to host servers that would exchange users data and host this data too. This is only possible with additional resources. The same goes for the development of such a system. With the current resources we have, this is not viable.

Another idea as an alternative to collaboration would be the ability to merge workspaces together, and to export workspaces to be imported on another program. This would both cut down on the server costs (As it would be file based) and increase the customization of it.

The merging system and all the features that come around this still require a lot of developer work which is not free. If we go forward with the commercial version, we will make sure to not limit the free version from offering users full creativity options. We will make sure to keep the prices reasonable too.
