My PC isn't powerful enough to run UE4 and to target its core audience when I prefer to program on a text editor with the command line. Panda3D provides the high level interaction through Python and component building through C++. It is for 3D, so I'm not going to make my own engine to run its game, unlike a 2D one. There's a lot of middleware solutions to spare from having to create my own physics, for example, but it won't let me go deeper into memory addresses for console porting. I'll have to bet on design and I do have the ideas, but are these going to be ultimately better in UE4, in case someone else had them as well?

Just keep in mind python is very slow compared to c++ due to it being a high level language

Is it a problem when Python glues the components written in C++? It's not something written entirely with the former, like graphics and performance, but the game's behaviour with the assets. That is why I'm relying on middleware graphics solutions and physics'.

I wouldn't trust a game that uses Python scripts. Not saying it wouldn't work, but Python is more suited for other tasks.

Hmm... Then it's bust for me.
