I think that rpg maker would be better off with python scripting base insted of ruby because python has a large reach in about everythign but web which 90% of rpg maker games arnt connected to the web and python has a 3d plateform so you could have 3d rpg maker games and make modles and such with blender idk but I just think It would be better with python but with a option of useing ruby

You are forgetting two things. One, Ruby can do everything Python can. 2. there already is a script for RMXP to change your games into 3D games.
Plus Ruby i much more suited for RPG Maker than python, becuase it's faster. More flexible, and just so much easier to code in. Ruby has built in networking functions as well, both HTTP protocols and TCP/IP protocols but RGSS/2 does not . Python on the uother hand, is much slower than Ruby.
Make sure you actually research into Ruby, before diving in head first. Ruby is brilliant, not as powerfull as C++ granted, but still good.

That's a strange idea, there. Like LegacyX said, all you can do in Python, you can do it also in Ruby.
RGSS doesn't have HTTP and TCP/IP protocols built-in, but it's easy to implement them based on Ruby's Sourceforge distribution.
Plus, RGSS itself has the Win32API module, which allows to call a C function from any dll file.

Python has more modules (standard and 3rd party). It also can be much faster then Ruby because it can compile a program into C++, and its power has been compared to C++. But Ruby and Python are so similar, that it is easy for me to make scripts for RPG Maker, just by what I learned from Python

True, the syntax is very similar. However, I think Ruby is more "natural". By this I mean, intuitive. My opinion, though.

I find Python more instinctive, but I guess its a matter of opinion.

I think RPG Maker would be better with Python. For me. Because I like Python.
But all in all, there really isn't much difference between Python and Ruby >_>

Ya I mean good looking 3d XD with python you could adleast make human looking models for python to apply a texture to.
And I'm not calling for a big python take of rpg maker just mabey a option
