    it's ideal for modding, but if you want to rewrite the engine you still need to know C++

    it is easy to learn XML, but hard to comprehend what the data represents, if that is not explained

    It could be done, but we would probably need to hire somebody for it:).

    How long would it take to learn C++?

    honestly it depends, but many months to possibly years before you fully comprehend everything is probably a correct prediction.

    For example although there's a lot of similarities between C++ and php, there are some differences, and you can do more things with C++ that you can't do with php, than php can do, that C++ can't. That is because php is a scripting language and C++ a high level programming language and that is what makes C++ more complicated.

    The only bit of C++ that I know is the first lesson, namely how to print "hello world", but then this is a short and straightforward programming procedure, rewriting an entire engine takes a lot more time than that.

    C++ is more difficult to learn than say a scripting language like php, because there is a lot more that you need to learn, and that extra bit is what takes a lot of time.

    Is PHP the easiest web language to learn?

    define web language? If with web language you mean all the languages, including: markup, styling, scripting, low level programming, high level programming and computer language. Then the answer is no, because html, xml (markup) and css (styling) are easier. As for the scripting languages I'd say php is probably the easiest language to learn, because it has an easy syntax, at least it is more easy to read than say asp or perl. As for the high level programming languages, python probably has the easiest syntax, though some say perl, because it looks a lot like the syntax of php.

    Yeah a php coder would say php. Though asp are favoured by others. It does depend on which language you like. Php can become as complicated as you like.
