The description sounds quite similar to World Empire. This is actually a series of games, with the first one having been released for DOS in 1991.

If not that, try looking at the list of Risk-ike games.

Hmm, your description reminded me of Weird Island somewhat but I don't remember the graphics there being particularly stunning. Could "Simon Shares" be the publisher's name? There was a company called Simon & Schuster Interactive . Here's the full list of their games at MobyGames: https://www.mobyga...

The amount of resource types you list is not very typical for an RTS game of the Warcraft II vibe. Since you say it was 3D I'm not suggesting Primitive Wars. Any chance it could've been a later instalment in the Settlers series? Maybe a MegaGlest mod?

This is slightly too new for an old game; chances are the folks here may not be able to help you.

The only side-scrolling RTS kinda like game I can think of is The Tone Rebellion (there's also the Clonk series but that one is certainly not what you're looking for).

Re: Top Down DOS Spaceship Shooter, Defend Earth from Aliens

What I do remember that maybe distinct is the intro and game over sequences. It starts with a news broadcast that has a real voice over, the anchorman mentioning how the Earth's environment is pretty much wrecked (I believe the game takes place in the near future). The broadcast is cut off by the a...

It has been noted numerous times, and actually stated in the the rules , that "old" is a completely non-descriptive adjective that absolutely does not help to identify a game, like, at all . Unless you specify the exact, or at least approximate time period when you played the game , you significantl...

I used to go to the library as a kid and their PC's had an old game where you could build a single town. I hope you do realise that there is no way to infer from this the time of the described events (and hence, the time when this game might have been released). Please provide helpful information ....

There's a level editor for Warcraft: Orcs & Humans but I wasn't able to run it in Wine.

I've found a number of user-made levels for the game recently.

I recall one team being red and one being blue in color.
Something like The Perfect General or Battle Isle?

Warcraft 1 user-made maps

Now that the first Warcraft game is sold again, I took a little interest in the user-made content created for the game. Blizzard never released any development tools for Warcraft besides the unit stats editor, but a certain BJ Pollard reverse-engineered the map format and in 1995 wrote and made publ...
