    Second, the default export templates do not have PCK encryption. Google play will give you a warning once you upload your app bundle. You will have to make a key and compile custom android templates. See this and this. This is extremely important as your game files and sensitive information could be exposed. I dislike that this isn't explicitly mentioned in the exporting for android (or I guess exporting in general) section of the documentation. I will likely make an issue later today, or hopefully someone can make one before me!

    When you download and use Godot, you do so under the project's open-source license, in this case, the MIT license; which can easily be found in the open repository in the LICENSE.md file.

    This often-repeated statement doesn't really communicate how the editor works. While it does use many of the same APIs, you couldn't build the editor from within the editor (bootstrapping). The editor itself is largely written in C++ and not Godot's integrated language GDScript, you can see for yourself https://github.com/godotengine/godot/tree/master/editor

    For example, if you run into a bug or issue or pain point in Godot, don't just complain on the internet! Complain on the internet, *AND* submit a detailed bug report or proposal, and rally all your followers to your newly created issue! Even if you can't contribute money or code, submitting detailed reports of issues and pain points is a much appreciated contribution to the community. Even if, worst case scenario, the issue sits there unsolved for years, it's still very valuable just for posterity! Having an issue up on a specific problem means there's a primary avenue for discussion, and there's a record of it existing.

    I wonder why some engines are seemingly destined for success and others... aren't.

    Godot got really big, despite a somewhat similar feature set: https://godotengine.org/ (really nice 2D support, 3D rendering was worse until version 4, GDScript has both a nice iteration speed but also has gotten some criticism, while C# was a second class citizen in the earlier iterations)

    Stride is really nice and seemed like it should have been the Unity replacement that people would look at, if it had gotten more attention and a community would have formed around it, like Godot's.

    There's also NeoAxis which is way more Windows centric, but still seems to be getting updates and is comparatively easy to use, yet similarly never got popular: https://www.neoaxis.com/

    Weirder yet, Java doesn't really have that many game engines out there, at least the likes of Unity/NeoAxis/Stride that have nice editors, despite the language being pretty nice. The closest I can think of is jMonkeyEngine which I donated some money in the past to, which is pretty usable but similarly niche: https://jmonkeyengine.org/

    I occasionally watch videos on the Gamefromscratch YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/@gamefromscratch/videos) and it surprises me that there are so many engines out there, but very few actually are in the public eye. If you don't go out of your way to look for other options, you will most likely only have heard of Unity and Unreal (or maybe also Godot in recent years). I wonder why that is.
