Allow expressions for TileMovement simulate control action

Could be generalized to all actions that limit input to some predefined dropdown, but this is the one I've run into currently. Basically I didn't like having to create several duplicate events in order to handle moving in all four directions, but the built-in action didn't let me call Simulate Control with dynamic input. I ended up using an action script and writing a handler myself, but it would have been much simpler if one of the drop down options was something along the lines of "Expression" which then enabled a further text box that I could type whatever I want, similar to how many other actions allow freeform expression input.
