Micromanagement/tycoon games?

Recently started getting into these kind of games and I was wondering what you all would recommend. I'm playing OpenTTD right now and I'm looking at Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 and Prison Architect

RCT3 has the most content but the bugs can be frustrating. Random crashes, worlds not loading if the file gets too big. I would still recommend it if you can get it on sale. You can also get the first game on GOG and it's a classic. Less content and slightly outdated mechanics but it's still fun.

Prison Architect is still alpha/early release so don't buy that unless you're willing to wait for the game to be finished. It does get an update every few months though.

You might like the Anno 1404/Dawn of Discovery/Anno 2070 kind of games...

The Settlers (from ages ago) was one of my all time favorite games that involved a lot of micromanagement but it kinda changed... From the recent versions, Settlers 7 is not too bad though.

Then there's stuff like Port Royale 3, which involves micromanaging trade routes and production... or the Tropico series...

For actual Tycoon games there's Railroad Tycoon 2 Platinum, but it's kinda old and it shows... It's still kinda fun though.

Maybe Gnomoria? (I haven't gotten too far into it but it seems like it's already better than "Towns")... There's also "Folk Tale" which is kinda micromanage-ish... but those are both early access too...

I believe the second one is basically the first one with a lot more content and whatnot, so that'd be a better solution.
