Godot store and commercial plugins

rraallvvrraallvv Posts: 7Member

Hey community!

I was wondering whether there is such thing as an online store for stuff related to Godot and what are your thoughts on allowing commercial plugins.

I'm asking because with GDNative it's only a matter of time before we see commercial plugins available for Godot, so it's better to have already some infrastructure compatible with those things.

Maybe it could accept only cryptocurrencies to avoiding fees.

Also it could ask for a percentage on each transaction, for infrastructure maintenance and such.

Please let know what you think.

Cheers!

    I don't know of any yet, however, facilities may be set up in the future for third-party asset stores (such as making them accessible from the editor at the user's discretion).

    The official asset library has no plans of providing commercial assets, because of legal and ethical issues around them (Godot's funds are managed by the Software Freedom Conservancy, which is a nonprofit organization).

    I see... that would require some API to handle login and authorization too.

    Thanks for the link, I'll take a look to their policies.

    In case that this thread attracts some attention, I'd be interested in a list of asset stores that support payments in cryptocurrency.
