All useful extensions deserve to be in the Extension Market.

Some excellent existing extensions are not included in the Extension Market.
Those hidden extensions created by generous persons can be very useful for many people.

Furthermore, the Extension Market would be more attractive if it had more content, and many more people would realize immediately that Stencyl can be even more powerful.

So I think it would be a good idea to include all extensions in the Extension Market.

I'd go even further and wonder if All-in-One, EasyMath and Joints don't deserve to be integrated in Stencyl?
Proud member of the League of Idiotic Stencylers! Doing things in Stencyl that probably shouldn't be done.

Yes, of course!

Without the EasyMath Extension many users get stuck during the development of their games because they can not handle complicated trigonometric formulas. And many kinds of physic-based games can not be made without the Joints Extension.

I never understood why some so powerful, useful and necessary extensions are not yet integrated in Stencyl.

One problem is that the block count can reach an unreasonable size and cause confusion for new users.  Another problem is that anything added to Stencyl has to be supported by Stencyl.  Extensions do not.

Ok, but the Trig / Exponents section in Stencyl is still pretty empty. There are only a very few blocks in it.

Yes, I can understand this, and I trust that all these useful features will be integrated in Stencyl over time.  :)

Thanks for your answer, rob1221

For extensions like math blocks where there's no support involved, the long term solution is a customizable palette, which will make things like this a matter of toggling them to show/hide.
