I'm wondering about Wonders: they adding in anymore Asian Wonders of the World? I was pleased to see the Great Wall in Warlords, but there are still so many Asian wonders that are being ignored - some of which simply dwarf several European wonders that have made it into the Civ genre time and time again. Here are a few suggestions: Todaiji (spelling may be off) Largest wooden structure in the world, the Todaiji originally housed an enormous bronze statue of the Buddha Daibutsu. Standing nearly three stories tall, the main pagoda was likely the second tallest building of the ancient world, after the Pyramids. It is estimated that building the statue consumed most of Japan's bronze production for several years, and left the country bankrupt for many more thereafter. Available w/ Priesthood. Double production speed w/ Copper. Reduces hate caused from practicing a different religion from your rivals, and doubles trade routes in the host city. Expires w/ either Construction, or if that would be too soon, maybe Engineering. +1 Great Prophet. Temple of Heaven Begun in 1420, the Temple of Heaven is one of the largest Taoist temples in the world. It served both the Ming and the Qing dynasties' emperors, and today attracts tourists the world over. Available w/ Divine Right (or if that is too "Wonder crowded", maybe Philosophy?). Double production speed w/ Marble. Either +1 per Corn, Wheat, and Rice crop (supposedly if the Emperor properly prayed at the temple of Heaven there would be a good crop for the following year; so if you have a "good crop" by having lots of grain resources, then your people would have better confidence in your leadership and thus be happier), OR (as that is probably way too powerful) maybe something like Granary grants +1 . Anyways, just my thoughts. +1 Great Prophet. The Silk Road The largest trade route of the ancient world, at its heyday the Silk Road stretched across Eurasia, with products such as Chinese silks reaching lands as far away as the Roman Empire. It was said that under the Mongols the Silk Road was so safe that a virgin bejeweled in gold could travel the entirety of the land portion of the route without being molested, and this was the route which Marco Polo traveled across in his historic trip across Asia. The Silk Road only lost importance with the development of oceanfaring vessels. Available w/ Currency. All Road improvements +1 gold and +1 movement. Obsolete w/ Navigation. +1 Great Merchant. Zheng He's Voyage Beginning in 1405 and for nearly three decades after, Zheng He undertook seven voyages of discovery for the Ming emperors of China. Traveling in a vessel nearly seven times larger than Christopher Columbus's flagship Santa Maria, Zheng He explored much of the Indian ocean and the African coastline. Some records even indicate he may have rounded the cape of Good Hope and made it through the North Atlantic into the Americas, a theory which has been put forth to help explain how it is that European maps depict the Cape of Good Hope long before any European explorers actually managed to go there themselves. Due to their immense cost and changing political climes, Zheng He's expeditions were eventually discontinued, and China would close its doors to the outside world for the next two centuries. Available w/ Compass. Must be built in a coastal city; requires Harbor. Allows all ships to enter Ocean tiles; +1 movement for all ships. +1 Great Merchant. Mausoleum of the First Emperor Qin Shi Huan's tomb features a collection of almost eight thousand life sized terra cotta soldiers, and remains one of the largest tombs to this day. Available w/ Pottery. Double production speed w/ Stone. New units recieve +1 experience points; +25% military production in host city. +1 Great Engineer. Cheomseongdae One of the world's oldest surviving scientific installations, this tower was built in the seventh century under the reign of Queen Seondeok, and was used in astronomical observations. Double production speed w/ Stone. Available w/ Masonry. Upon completion builder recieves 1 free Great Scientist. Anyways, those are my suggestions. Any thoughts? And sorry if these things ARE already in BtS; haven't been keeping up too well with Firaxis's teaser previews.
