    This list actually got me really excited. I love the fact that a lot of the really strong buildings can only be built in certain locations. This makes city planning a lot more interesting. Some of my doubts were just removed.

    Fine, other things

    Siam's "Wat" doesn't give the jungle bonus?
    Egypt's "Burial Tomb" doesn't give the Arist Specialist slot?

    There are only 2 Engineer buildings, 4 Science ones and 3 of all the others?

    1. It's blank after the 50% bonus. So I don't know.
    2. Doesn't say anything about a artist specialist.

    I found some engineer specialist that I left off and fixed it. In fact all specialist should be there now.

    A couple observations.

    1. No building ever becomes obsolete.
    2. Most buildings that provide a similar effect are part of a requirement chain. E.g. Walls -> Castle -> Military base.

    I think 1 is very good. It means that that you'll never have "junk" buildings like civ4 Castles that became obsolete too soon. Plus no painful techs like civ4's Scientific Revolution (except Steam Power for the French).

    2 is also okay. It will simplify build decisions and eliminate some annoying micromanagement. Instead of having to decide if you want to build a bank before a marketplace, you can focus on making the important decision about which class of building to construct.

    I think it would make more sense if Military Academy required Armory instead of Barracks (as it's always better to build an Armory instead of it). Or maybe Armory requires iron?

    These buildings seem to basically exist in a tree, where at the end of the gold tree, or production treee these buildings are essentially national wonders, although you aren't limited to one top end building, your gonna have to specialise each city to be able to afford to reach the end of the tree.

    Which is neat.

    I can see it being the norm to focus mainly on building one type of tree, and when not building buildings specific to that tree your cities will often find themselves producing gold or research (if you can do that).

    I now know for a fact that this is all the specialist. I highlighted them for faster viewing. I think the longhouse was the one I missed earlier.

    Those maintenance costs seem waaay too high. Why would I bother losing 8 gold per turn for 25% production? Woudln't it be easier to just work more mines instead of trading posts?

    Wouldn't you rather work a whole bunch of mines and have the 25%?

    Have a separate citying bring in the gold with tradepost spam to pay for it.
