Are you looking at making a 2D or 3D simulator? Is this single player, or online? Essentially these games are just spreadsheets with RNG, and lots of event based calculations. What platforms are you wanting to develop on?

If you're looking at getting into programming, you have many options:

C# with Unity

Python with PyGame

You can also look into using GameMaker Studio 2, which has GML for a scripting language. You would have to look into extensions for reading sheets.

If you want to run this online, you can make this using HTML/CSS + Javascript, and PHP (with a database).

Awesome, thanks. im looking to make a 2D, both single player and online simulator. I will explore those options and see what I like and what I think will work.

I do not program but have been collecting software with source for years in preparation for such. I knew I had this hanging around, maybe you can use it. Looks like Python. I punched it into gaggle to see what came up and believe this page is related. Best Regards
