# AI wonderbuilding vs humans

#### PainlessDK

A friend and I are having a bit of a discussion about the cause of AI finishing the wonders before the human player in the same turn in a MP setup.

My postulate is: AI finishes because it has higher production/more hammers

His postulate is: AI finishes because it is before him in the turn?

I'm fairly sure I'm right, but he's impossible to argue with.

So, you clever civ people. Help us solve this problem so we can bury the hatchet!

Actually you are both wrong, but he's closer.

All human turns are BEFORE all AI turns.
But production occurs during each players turn. (Think of it as RISK where reinforcements occurred at the beginning of each players turn and not an SSI game where both players reinforcements appeared at the same time.)

If it's turn 135 and your seeing 1 turn remaining but the AI completes it on theirs, then the AI finished in on their turn 135 when you needed until turn 136 to have gotten it.

I believe that if two Civs finish a wonder on the same turn, the "winner" goes to Civ with the most amount of hammers left over after deducting the the required hammers for the wonder (this will be a small number, but think about it as the remaining in a division equation).

I doubt this is the case. The civs' turns are processed in the same order every turn, with the human player(s) going first and then the AI civs in the same order every turn (and CSs and then barbarians bringing up the rear). You can figure out their turn order by watching the indication at the bottom of the screen. If two AI civs will end up generating enough hammers to win the wonder, the earlier processed AI should be the winner.

There is a turn order shown at the bottom of the screen, showing the order that the turns are processed in, whoever is first in that will win. Hammer overflow does not matter. I tested this by popping a great engineer with a few turns to go, leaving 1 turn remaining and many hammers overflow, and another friend, who was before me in the turn order, who hard built the wonder and had one turn remaining. He won it.

From the best I can tell, it is strictly based on who finishes it first, and there is a turn order. Who ever has their turn first has the advantage of being able to finish their wonders first.
