Remembering an older game from late 90s.

I've been trying to remember the name of this older game I used to play and now feel like playing again.

I only have vague recollection of the game.

It was set in the new world era, in the americas.
It included resource management, was turn based.
The view was top-down isometric, you could expand your base and build structures.
Battles were on a grid-based level with squares.

It's not any of the obvious classics like colonization or civilization.
I remember there being an option to make the map become animated like rivers and the water wheels running.

Does this ring a bell to anyone?

One of the Anno games maybe?

Response by poster: While the viewpoint was pretty much the same as in Anno 1602, it's not.
I'm pretty sure the whole menu was at the bottom.
I think you didn't have the ability to build details in cities, I think it was more of a colonization-style where you develop the inside of a colony.

Response by poster: It was really set in the new world, like the years 1550s or so.
It was really a strategy game with resource management and such.

Response by poster: However, malphigian, I think Anno might also be a very interesting game to try out!
