    The Nat. Wonder picker is cool. I would probably play with the tech shuffler mode.

    There were no hints to the next pack contents.

    While those are some nice changes, I was hoping Anton would reveal some new mechanic or something that added more depth to the game

    TL;DR (or for those at work)

    -New filter to pick natural wonders that can appear in a game
    -Some tweaks to forest fires
    -Some unspecified balance changes that will be in patch notes
    -New mode: Shuffled techs and civics

    tech/civic shuffle mode will be nice, playing with the same trees for so many hours does get old.

    Hmm, tweaks to Government Plaza effects. Wonder what those will be?

    And Cliffs of Dover too probably.

    Gov. Plaza seems pretty good to me right now, maybe something related to spies again? Or making Gov. Plaza not consuming your district quota?

    That shuffle mode to the trees looks so cool! Means more replayability!

    The natural wonder picker is cool. But I feel like folks have been clamoring stronger for that exact thing (an include/exclude list for randomization) for Civ opponents (in both AI and MP), so I'm surprised that they didn't do that as well.

    Blind tech/civic mode does seem like an interesting way to shake up your game a bit. Anyone know what old 4x game had a 'blind research' mode that Anton was playing?

    I'm interested to see the Government Plaza changes. Choosing Natural wonders and randomized trees aren't for me, though I might try at least one game with randomized trees... someday. I'll probably play a game with every game mode on once they're all released.

    Cliffs of Dover will disappear from a lot of people's game :lol:

    I've updated the Features Thread but I think the bulk of the changes will be in the patch notes

    I guess I'm in the minority with the Tech & Civic Shuffle Mode. It's the first thing since NFP that I'm not particularly interested in.

    They didn't mention a specific date, but I suppose we can assume the update will go live this Thursday.

    Oh yeah, randoms techs and civics and a natural wonder picker is all good news ! I often try to make thematic games, like East Asia (using only appropriate civs), Africa or South America. This can make it a lot more thematic !

    Can we also get a luxury resources picker as well ? Pretty please. :)

    New Game Mode is cute. Not sure I’ll shuffle the tech tree much. But I think it’s an option lots of people will like.

    Nice being able to select Natural Wonders. Can’t see myself using it, but nice QOL. Now we just need the ability to exclude certain Civs...

    Interested to see the Balance Changes. Tweaking Gov Plaza sounds promising.
