Tropico 3. User created campaigns!

This is mega awesome.

Quote:
Q: Are there any plans for building a community through modding and scripting support? How "open" and customizable will Tropico 3 be in this regard? Will you provide an easy to use map editor?

A: The Timeline Editor is a powerful tool allowing users to create their own custom scenarios called challenges. Events in these challenges will be very customizable, right up to the flavor text. So if you want to create a challenge about aliens abducting Tropican citizens, or to recreate a historical event like the Cuban missile crisis, you can now do so. The game will fully support sharing and rating user created scenarios online.
The players will be able to customize some aspects of the maps. The Map Generator allows you to quickly create a wide variety of random islands by setting various parameters such as map size, elevation, vegetation and natural resources.

Seriously, this is beyond epic. Rest of the interview is that at the link.

Tropico is probably the best PC game ever.

Looks like a sim I could get into. Should I start with 3 or check out the older ones first?

You dont need to check them but theres no reason not to. This one wont be out for a while yet and the second one is a great game. Probably quite cheap too by now.

First one is better. Second one is pirate nonsense, wtf were they thinking? I'm glad this one is going back to its roots.

The pessimist in me is worried about the lack of people walking around in some of those screen shots.

The more screens I see, the more I think about getting this game. Damn you Alucard, your making me think about spending more money than I should.
