    So what kinds of Natural Wonders do you think should be added into the game?

    I've got more than a few -

    Yonaguni Monument - +4 :c5culture: Culture, +4 :c5happy: Happiness

    Spoiler :



    Angel Falls - +1 :c5food: Food, +5 :c5culture: Culture

    Spoiler :


    Mammoth Cave - +2 :c5science: Science, +10% Tourism, provides Cavern Explorer promotion (unit may move through mountains (double speed for Carthage))

    Spoiler :


    Grand Canyon - +1 :c5greatperson: Great Person point of all types (spans multiple tiles akin to GBR)

    They all look interesting, but I'm not sure about the "Move through mountains" thing. That should be limited to Carthage. Sure, Kilimanjaro steals Inca's ability, but some other UUs has the no penalty movement on hills.

    Yeild-wise, I think Mamoth Cave should give a bit more, at least some production.

    Grand Canyon's bonus is interesting, but I'd probably also give it production.

    This may be too much time with Spain talking, but I think Natural Wonders should be head and shoulders over every other tile in the game.

    Like them all! I think the Grand Canyon should get at least +1 science as it give a good look into how the earth is made up and +2 gold for tourism.

    The tourism bonus is interesting, although I would change that so that the late game, the buildings like hotels would just give a flat bonus to tourism to all natural wonders. I mean, I don't see why currently Mt. Kilimanjaro will give tourism late game, but Uluru doesn't.

    These aren't the best, but they're what I've thought of. Yields may be a bit too low.

    Spoiler :
    Mount Everest
    3 Gold
    3 Production

    Spoiler :
    Niagara Falls
    3 Food
    3 Science

    Spoiler :
    Garden of the Gods
    4 Faith
    2 Science

    Surely Mount Everest should be a Gold & Tourism Bonus, with both bonuses increasing as Transportation gets better: build an airport in the city with Everest in its radius, and you should be swimming in Tourism and Gold from Tourism.

    Niagara Falls' bonus should be Production (it was one of the first major Hydroelectric Power Plants in the USA) and a + Population Growth - given the popularity of the Falls as a Honeymoon destination in the past 130 years, there have probably been as many children conceived within 5 miles of the Falls as anywhere else in the country!
