    Me too - I suspect this might have something to do with how the map generator selects suitable plots for the natural wonders. Each wonder has some restrictions that must be met in order for the wonder to appear (for instance Rock of Gibraltar requires a certain number of coastal tiles surrounding it), and this might affect which wonders appear on a certain map. It might be conditions for Cerro de Potosi are more favorable than some of the others.

    I don't think so, need to review the underlying code but it think the generator first select with NW to add, then fits it in a valid place.

    That is how I understood it to work, but what happens if there is no valid place on the map for the NW? Do you just end up with one less NW for that game?

    Are you using an unusual map script? The odds are not too crazy. FoY three times in a row would sure make someone think something is up!
