    I think the older The Sims have one of the best UI of games out there. Very technical stuff translated into understandable and intuitive design.

    Think about:

    • Helpful grids
    • Feed forward and feed back (for example the moving arrows)
    • Different modes (building, buying etc.)
    • Mouse behaviours (click, hold)
