    Well, there are request threads for just about everything else, why not Natural Wonders? Just post any ideas for Natural Wonders (and their yields, along with any other relevant information), and I'll compile them into a list.

    And, yes, I am aware Spain's UA would need to be re-examined if new wonders were added.

    List will start in next post.

    Oops. I meant to put Kilimanjaro (updating that now).
    As for Europe, I just kind of lacked ideas. Couldn't think of anything immediately.

    Ha Long Bay (food, science) would be a different sort of natural wonder to what's already there. As for Europe, Giant's Causeway (gold) springs to mind. (Ah, I see you've already added that :))

    I would suggest Ayer's Rock/Uluru, but I'm fairly certain the "Grand Mesa" we already have is actually supposed to be that. :p

    Ha long bay is a good one! I love it!

    I had thought as well that Black Forest could provide some culture, given the romanticised views of it

    Updated, awesome idea!
    Black Forest - switched production to culture
    In light of Ha Long Bay's yield, buffed the Amazon. Too much of a boost?

    I put it on, but isn't it a little large for a wonder?

    Since I am from Arizona, I would like to see the Grand Canyon. Possibly the Painted Desert and/or Monument Valley.

    The Grand Canyon could be a two tile sprawl much like The Great Barrier Reef. To make things interesting, maybe the length of its sprawl (and this goes with the Great Barrier Reef) is determined by map size (smaller map = shorter sprawl, larger map = longer sprawl). It would have a bonus to science +3(Geologists heaven) and gold +2(river hex). If the canyon can be longer than two hexes it should not give more than +2 extra happiness or its bonuses need to be reduced.

    The painted desert and monument valley would create happiness/beakers/and culture.

    Oh absolutely. I'd love to see the canyon too, but it's just impratical. Why not Waimea Canyon instead? Middle of Nowhere!

    America is rather blessed with iconic natural wonders. :p

    One for the Middle East could be the Dead Sea. No food, obviously :p, but lots of gold from salt and tourism, and culture from the Dead Sea Scrolls?

    Makadikadi Pan

    Yields something like +2 science, +5 gold.

    Geirangerfjord

    +2 Food, +2 Production, +3 Gold.

    I think an important consideration for new NW's is Earth maps. As I discovered in a recent game, Spain starting in North America makes for an utterly :crazyeye: start with Grand Mesa, OF and Barringers being pretty much next to each other. It would obviously get even more broken if further North American NW's were added, despite the Grand Canyon being an obvious choice. I'm not really sure why they went with Grand Mesa to be honest - sure its a lovely and impressive feature, but the GC is much more famous, as is the Niagara Falls.

    And bearing in mind Earth maps, the two regions most badly in need of some are Asia and Africa. So Everest would be the one I would next add were I Firaxis, followed by something in Africa - Kilimanjaro/Vic Falls/Rift Valley/Makadikadi; the place has no shortage of them. The Americas need no further attention for now.

    Well, I'm including all suggestions, anyways. SA is relatively empty (just the Cerro), so that wouldn't be too bad to add some to.

    I made a minor change to Makgadikgi, good or bad?

    Lastly, I think the Pacific needs many more options - something to make it worthwhile to colonize archipelagos and small islands (and support Poly on TSL maps)
