i came across Godot via a youtube video and after downloading it and playing around, i was really impressed that a software of this quality is free. But later on, i was disappointed after discovering that you cant extend your code with native api without have to recompile which is time consuming. For example Giderosmobile has Google service, ads (Android and ios) and inapp api built in by default, and it also has a code bridge for easy native extensions of code without having to recompile the whole src code and it now also open source but it is not close to godot in terms of visual editor and some other tools. Right now these features are missing so it not really good for developers who care about monetization especially those who are really into other game engine (unity, unreal etc)

EDITED: was a little tired when i posted it so i didn't mind my words

Note that connection to native libraries is planned for the future (so, 2.1, 2.2 or 3.0, depends)

'm pretty sure if you were to learn C++ you could probably do it without decompiling

FWIW, OP used the term "recompiling", which means having to rebuild the engine if you have altered it.

On topic, i think the modules system allows modules to be added as dynamic libs?

For now that's probably the price for true multi-platform. Giderosmobile is only Windows-Software - from what i read it runs under Linux only because there is an emulator (which is of course not an emulator :-)).

And, i believe you can make money without giving in to google :-)
