Although its release date is not public yet, Universism project looks really interesting.
Furthermore they also promise to release an in-game editor. From their website:
The biggest news is that we have begun work on an ambitious new in-game engine that we have titled ‘Prometheus’. And it will shake the very foundation of the core gameplay. Prometheus will simulate living planets in the game and will be responsible for both micro and macro world events. It will manage things like air density, vegetation and living creatures, natural resources, temperature, biome generation, and even dynamic events. Dynamic events consist of things like the changing of seasons and natural disasters. Season change will have a far more drastic effect than you may think. Winters in particular can be incredibly brutal. Some winters will last longer than others, and with them comes unimaginable cold. Food will become scarce, development will slow to a crawl, and sufficient shelter will be the only thing keeping your civilization alive. You had better prepare for whatever Prometheus has to offer.
Which are you favourite planet simulation games? Do you know of any being used in the classroom?
