As a company, they've actually got rather ambitious plans.  In short,
they want you to not only SimCity-it but also Quake-it in the future.
That is, add on extra modules to allow the players lead an invasion of
the other team in first-person's.  This is notable in that they're
going for multiple levels of detail/scale from the other direction.

Never thought of that.
