comment Tweaking and Settings - Runtime variable modification and persistence
Many types of runtime variables for debugging and gameplay purposes make sense to store in some sort of persistent back end. This allows the changing of them across an entire system when you deploy. SQL is just an example of a back end, you could patch the information to a file on disk or any number of other methods.
