Codex Scoop: Temple of Elemental Evil world editor discovered hidden in game's official Polish patch

Troika Games' The Temple of Elemental Evil used an updated version of the Arcanum engine, but unlike Arcanum, its WorldEd editor was never released to the public. The lack of a proper editor has been a serious obstacle to modding this promising but flawed game, although modding collectives such as the well-known Circle of Eight have nevertheless made heroic efforts to develop their own tools over the years. But all that might change now. This Sunday, an anonymous leaker known only as "Temple of Elemental Kurwa" left a message in Polish on our forums. Here's an English translation of the relevant parts:
2. Create an empty folder, and create an empty text file called ChangeLog.txt
3. Run the patch and choose that folder as destination.
4. Congratulations! You now have WorldEd.
Yes, you read that right. TToEE's official editor was included with the game's Polish version all along. Somehow, all these years, nobody ever found out about it. Incredible.
