Now you've said it, I can see Barometry Wars working as a concept. You play a god with power over the weather. Your worshippers provide you with Mana, which power your abilities. You use your abilities to generate useful weather, pleasing the worshippers and hopefully increasing your Mana base. Civilization without the Civ, I suppose. Of course, in the multiplayer your fellow gods have the option of sending bad weather your way, which you have to counter, but the conflicting weather patterns could create unpredictable backlash effects . . . and here comes a hurricane to ruin everyone's day.
Mmm . . . I dunno . . . Populous was ultimately a land-shaper. I'm thinking more along the lines of a pure weather sim; the terrain map could stay constant. I agree it is close in concept.Netface said:They made this already. It's called Populous.
