    v0.8.3 out:
    • Banff Springs Hotel and Orszaghaz available;
    • fixed Kew Gardens.
    Verify how many League Votes are given by Orszaghaz for Defensive Pacts (1 per 1, 1 per 2 etc.). I couldn't check that, so I assumed 1 per 2;

    @hokath Why did you chang style of background for new Wonder pictures? Your current one is more artistic, I like it, but misses civ's sunbeams. I noticed it in Orszaghaz, Akihabara, Ruhr Valley, Rockefeller... We should follow their style if possible.

    Do you experience CTDs with latest VP?

    I'll start a game with the new DLL
    I noticed they don't sunbeam the ones at night (makes sense, eh) so I didn't for those, the Rockefeller is an oversight.

    @adan_eslavo. Hi Adan. Is version 0.8.3 compatible with Even More Resources for Vox Populi (v 5)? Because as I remember it was a possibility of conflict between mods due to difference in AssignStartingPlots.lua file.

    Dear Adan,

    I tried the last version, definitely, I love this mod and the originality of the wonders, arts, choices, effects, ...
    I'am a big fan of Trans-Siberian Railway, Panama Canal and Ruhr Valley :)


    Some remarks and test results :

    No more problem with that.

    I play with a civilization that I modified, the unique building gives + 1 XP per forest and I see the same bug. it doesn't help but it confirms :sad:.

    In texts of Ruhr Valley and Banff Spring Hotel, the industry finisher notification don't appear.

    For Kuk, I think you could put as a limitation of terrain, swamp and jungle. Too often the AI launches construction when it just has a small swamp in a corner when it is, in my opinion, more of a wonder to start a civilization lost between jungle and swamp.

    In futur transport wonders, if you choose to include it, Concorde was a Franco-English partnership, let us give back to Caesar what belongs to him or rather to Elisabeth II :queen:.

    On another level, I haven't tested the natural wonders part, I use a communitas modified by me with the functionality of Even More Resources included which didn't pose a problem but with the inclusion of the new natural wonders, I have a map really weird, without the added resources and with swamps that look like tundra :confused:
    But I haven't tested much, I'll come back to talk about it when it's done.

    Thank you again for all this work, a special mention for the latest arts of Hokath and the icons of Asterix Rage :thumbsup:

    I did small tweaks to core file to make Even More Resources compatible with More Wonders, so any other mode, which changes that file (AssignStartingPlots.lua) will be incompatible as default. For EMR I posted special file, like for 43-civ version.

    Can you check if XP bug is present with your mode + VP without More Wonders? This would confirm that my mod is not the source of the problem. Post necessary images/notes on VP github if possible.

    Concorde is planned to be included.

    @gwennog XP topic: Did you do some further testing? Did you or someone else posted some expanded info on its own github issue? My was just closed by G, so without help I cannot bring the attention for that problem.

    @pineappledan, can you help with that? Do you experience similar problems? Anyone using pure VP has the same problem?

    None for now. I will try to write something this week (no promise), but first I need to sketch plan for new wonder's abilities.
    All my topics from github are closed (I commented with asking why) so no bug fix from VP so far. They are ignoring the problems. Community help in that matter would be invaluable.

    The more people check the thing, and write on github their comments, the more pression will be put on VP modders.

    Sorry, it is too hot in france to turn on the computer and especially to run civ :devil:
    But I do not forget the point and will work on it as soon as possible (by posting on github in particular).

    I haven't experienced XP problems outside this mod. TBH, I haven't played civ in over a month now

    Do you think it can be related to the fact, that XP bonus (taken from Brandenburg Gate) is placed on dummy? Same code for Qalhat was reported to work fine, but instead of XP it gives :c5culture:; I checked code dozens of times, played few short gameplay tests with IGE and I have no idea what causes it :undecide: @gwennog says he has similar problem in his mod. I'm waiting for more info (his mod without MW).

    No info from @Gazebo/@ilteroi and the VP team about closed topics, so plans must be changed I suppose (Zimbabwe XP, mountain walking, building requirements)...

    I'm curious about one thing for your dummy. It is set up to only exist in the capital or can it exist in other cities as well. If the dummy somehow gets duplicated while modified by trade routes, I can see how it can be a weird number when working with a global EX gain. This is one issue I encountered before when modding but unsure if it's of any help for you.

    I checked other cities and they have no copies, leftovers or whatever. The only copies are set in city where wonder was built. I'm done with this bug, so I will rework the ability probably. The other thing is Qalhat uses almost same code for placing dummy (only requirements are slightly different) and it works well...


    On the other hand, Natural Wonder's model finally work! With @Iamblichos we've managed to make them work so in next version they will be present. Giant's Causeway and Salar are ok, but Mt. Everest is far from ok. Of course all of them should be reworked some day, but, for now, they can be played.

    If you know talented 3d artist eager to help, please sent him/her to me :p
