Some of the most commonly used, and most useful extensions should be incorporated into Stencyl as part of the main engine.

Stencyl is great, but at the moment, multiple extensions are often required for projects, and each extension carries the risk that it may be abandoned by its author.

This is non actionable. If you specify which extensions exactly, we can look at them and decide on a case-by-case basis whether it should be built-in. The majority of extensions probably shouldn't be.

@Justin,  Sorry for posting in a closed topic.
It would be great if we could get the dialog extension pre-installed. It is so commonly used and it should really be part of it.

We should at least have a discussion regarding which lightweight extensions could be built in. I can understand that it's impractical to include everything, but I feel that the core functionality of Stencyl should be increased.

Yeah I certainly have a few things about this.
My vote is to toss in Raytracing, Simple Math, maybe an extension about controls, idk.

Though if I could really say so, I would love to see Dialog make the cut. It’s a hugely pivotal form of communication, and there is no simple way to display a similar form or handling large quantities of text.

I see the extensions as a hint towards what is needed in Stencyl. There are a lot of specific ones to specific things, but there are extensions any medium to heavily ambitious Stencyler simple can’t go without. That’s kinda my two cents on things.
