Description from the packaging.

The living planet.
Take charge of an entire planet from its birth until its death- 10 billion years later. Guide life from its inception as single-celled microbes to a civilization that can reach for the stars.

Inspired by James Lovelock's Gaia hypothesis, Sim Earth simulates the Earth as a single living organism.

A variety of graphs and information windows reveal every detail of your planet.

Rule an infinite number of worlds. Take over existing planets, or create new, randomly generated worlds.

Control your planet's Geosphere, Atmosphere, Biosphere and Civilizations.

Place life-forms on the land and in the seas. Put various levels of civilization where you want to them. Use special Terraforming Tools to change an inhospitable world into a paradise.

Unleash volcanos, earthquakes, meteors, tidal waves, and other natural (and unnatural) powers to reshape your planet.

View the entire world as either a flat projection or a spinning globe. Multiple maps track everything from continental drift to biological diversity. Close-up views, for inspecting and modifying planets, display climate, life, and data layers.
