The turn editor is going to give a players ability to emanate small events on their own. […] Just a fact that we’re gonna be vouchsafing players select their approach of enjoying a diversion [through tradition content] is something that we’re looking brazen to seeing. For us, we only wish to yield a height for players to take advantage of all a mod collection that are gonna be expelled from us, and afterwards have them only go furious with it, have fun and, only unequivocally suffer their possess experiences.”
