    All wonder addons are fully compatible with 1.383 patch

    A brief introducing overview...

    I've been quite surprised about the really unexpected number of download of my The Seven Ancient Wonders mod. It has scored more than 16000 DLs during its lifetime, meaning that people appreciate it.
    New wonders seem a way to play CiV that people like enough. Thus I've released more wonders to play both with or without The Seven Ancient Wonders mod.
    I've released them as single addon to let players to decide which wonders they wish.
    Enjoy them !!! :)

    Thanks ambrox62. Your wonders are very nicely done and really spice up the game for me. I don't play with them too often though because of the rearranging of the other wonders on the tech tree. Is there a way to play with your wonders while leaving the others where they are in vanilla? And I can't wait to see the others you are making!

    Making wonders is something I've actually been trying to learn how to do. I'm currently reading Kael's modguide but it's been rough learning everything. I hope I'm able to create some as great as these.

    Request: This request is by effect, not name. I think it would be fun to have a wonder that comes early (ancient era) that is like Angkor Wat but only 25%. This way if you can nab these 2 wonders your borders will grow at twice the rate of other civs. (It would preferrably be a wonder that doesn't clash TOO much with Angkor's aesthetic.) If you don't manage to get both then there will be at least two civs out there expanding faster than usual which leads to more variety on the map.

    Also, I created a forum for wonder ideas recently. I don't think all of them would work but it might serve as a nice source for ideas/inspiration.

    Nice work, ambrox. Your icon quality is always good, and makes your wonders an easy choice to add to mods.

    Your wonder forum is a really good idea. When I finish my ancient wonders collection, I'll go straight for the modern ones ;)

    Your 25% Angkor Wat effect is also an interesting idea. My next Tower of Babel might do the job. After all it was a spreading culture building ( following the biblical account). Post on your forum a kind of poll about it, and tell me the results.

    You are talking about the additional 3 of the 7 ancient wonders, right?
    Because of the OT, my answer is here

    So, only ancient era requests are accepted? Temple of Solomon then.

    You read my thoughts :D
    I just need a good quality image of the exterior of the temple. I've searched a lot, but haven't found the right picture till now.

    I searched, you're right not too many to choose from. Strangely, Yandex gives better results than Google.

    Well, this is the best one I found -

    other relatively good ones -

    Awesome!

    When you get to Industrial wonders, how about Neuschwanstein castle?

    I was actually trying to work on just that recently.

    Did some serious photoshopping to get a decent splash

    Just a tip from my experience.
    When you draw a splash screen pay attention that the lower quarter will be covered by the dark text area. Thus the main scene must stay in the upper 3/4 of the image
    In your case, for example, the lower half of the castle will not be visible

    I wanted to try and do a splash screen for Neuschwanstein, but I didn't know the size, so here is the uncropped version:

    I didn't make this, just found it and thought it'll look nice.
