Set

The Set plugin is specifically designed to extend the game engine's features to implement the JS Set API, for games built in Construct 3.


The Set plugin allows you to store unique data efficiently. In comparison with the Array object, which is made to efficiently tolerate ununique data.


The Set plugin allows both instantaneous declaration of set and gradual creation of set by defining the elements and their set.


The Set plugin is a sole Construct 3 editor and c3runtime implementation, dedicated for optimization and performance with c3runtime using ES6 API features.

User Guide


The Set plugin allows the implementation of the Set JavaScript ES6 API with both instantaneous declarations, and create declarations by defining the elements and the set. The Set plugin allows you to store unique data efficiently. In comparison with the Array object, which is made to efficiently tolerate duplication.

The Set has two (2) different methods in declaring its elements or values.

  • One is the instantaneous declaration where you can declare the list of elements in the same line, both from conditions and expressions, which the built-in Construct cannot efficiently do without this feature.

  • Another is the create-based declaration of elements and set name. This one works similar with the built-in Array object, only that it deduplicates unique values, and well equipped and more efficient for one-dimensional (1D) lists.

The Set plugin is a useful data structure tool for game or app development, where it efficiently processes and manages list and set values, which is commonly done in all sorts of applications.

Related Plugins


  • Array - is a built-in feature in Construct 3 and Construct 2. The Array object specializes in 3 dimensional arrays and tolerant to duplication of elements, which is comparable to the Set plugin. The Set plugin on the other hand specializes in one (1) dimensional lists with unique elements and instantaneous implementations.
