Lots of good ideas, I like the SimSpace idea, where you build a space colony.

How bout Sim Dim Sum? You have to manage a Chinese Dim Sum restaurant, start a franchise, hire and fire employees, and keep up the wildest range of delicacies that your clientele demand (pigs feet chicken feet ox tail dumplings woo!). I would suggest this would be a great opportuntity to localize your project from the start - I suspect this might go over better in the eastern gamers market.

And as a bonus you could write off your visits to the local Dim Sum place on your tax returns as research!

simcasino. You could start out with some tiny back-alley casino, and you have to outfit it with all the best gambling stuff. As you gain more money and customers, you could move to bigger and better places, until you own a huge gambling empire.

or how about sim 2nd-hand car salesman?

Space Colony, Jake, Space colony. Good graphics and a little arcade to go with it and you've got a good one.

Dr. Light's idea does sound really good. Everything else is starting to get (just a bit Grin ) odd.
