Paradox is slowly heading toward making the game I want.

I don't want to play as a nation. I want to play as god and watch as all the nations I've created fight one another. Occasionally I will throw curves at them and force them to go in other directions.

Still waiting for holodeck technology before I'll be satisfied on this front.

Probably not a Goat, either.

And the best part is there is absolutely no way the holograms could ever malfunction and become real.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Uhhh pretty sure you can already do this in EU4 with El Dorado
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Hm... I played the crap out of the El Dorado expansion and didn't see much in the way of that. Maybe I missed it?

EU4 would work well for it. I'm sure I could make something work that was kind of close if I used cheats properly.

You can seed a game with custom nations and play as an observer. You can then load in as a nation you want to change the course of, do so, and then go back to playing the observer I believe

Ohhh I see what you mean.

I am looking for more control as the observer though. Like, I wanna cause a flood in England and have Zimbabwe discover a massive gold deposit before the Chinese use their early machine guns to try to invade India.

Yeah.

Using cheat codes and memory editors only gets you half way there in most games. The game actually has to be designed to take advantage of unlimited everything to be REALLY fun.
