I'm Confused...

So, at first I thought that FP was a game which was all about people modding, creating maps and sharing them with the world. But now... I'm not so sure. I don't understand how modding works for this game because it looks more of a platform or apary box with multiple modes and maps for yo to play with and people can edit them into something else. So, is it a modding platform, or a party box which you can make games for. And how does it work? Is there an inbuilt mod engine or do I have to use external software and how will I upload? Also, WHEN CAN I BUY THE GAME!!!

I was a little vague in my first question so I will give a little more description. So, I'm confused on whether FP is a mod development platform where people can create games then share them and their games get put on charts so people can view them easier. Or, is it a party box style game where people play dev levels and people can upload through Steam Workshop but it's not necessary. Or, is it somewhere in between? Can somebody please explain how that will work and answer my other questions or link me to the answers.

    It's a modding framework. It's about making games and sharing them through the steam workshop for others to play, or mod.

    The thing is the modding is done in game, so you switch between the game world and editing mode in real time. It was still very early in development, but the idea was if you made a mod, I could load it up and play it with you, and we could edit it while playing.

    UWE planned to make official mods/games for players to play, but it is designed to be primarily about user driven content.

    I haven't used it for a long time, but I might see if I can rustle up a little video or something over the next couple of weeks.
