PC gaming veteran, returning to creating Rollercoasters & Civilizations

I used to play a lot
of PC games, but in the past 10 years moved towards console gaming. I realise I've missed a whole era of games that only really work with a mouse and keyboard. My absolute favourites were creative, engaging, long play games, such as Rollercoaster Tycoon
. I never really played to win. I played for creative ends. The best times I had playing Rollercoaster Tycoon was in sandbox mode
the only limits being my imagination. Those were the days. What (PC) games offer the equivalent of this now?

I know that if I was a 15 year old today I would be a Minecraft obsessive. It sings to me. But I don't have the patience to wander about dropping blocks into place, one by one. I want the old Rollercoaster Tycoon rush, the open-world creativity, and a dip-in-every-so-often sensibility.
What should I play?
(P.S. I already have Civilization V)
