Economic Simulation Games
A few times a year I find my self craving for an economic simulation game. The SimCity type games generally don't scratch the itch, I am most interested in the supply chains and logistics that are associated with production and trade. Maybe it reflects on my job as a process engineer. Caesar 3 and Dwarf fortress scratched the itch in a great way and I find myself reinstalling them often. But Caesar 3's uncooperative Market Ladies and Dwarf fortress's lack of larger goals than just building a big fortress leave me feeling short after a while. What I would like to see is a game with a lot of supply chain type work mixed with some combat and overall goal progression to keep things interesting.
Are there any games you would suggest?
