Well turns out I don't have either of those wonders I don't think you can rely on any wonder unless you engineer it and even then it requires a pretty hard beeline to be safe. I mostly just take what I can get. Hanging gardens is certainly good but petra/colossus do almost exactly the same thing, internal trade routes while worse in this mod are still pretty powerful. Apostolic tradition also makes your capital huge. Spoiler Up to T144 : I'm 4 techs behind Siam but part of that is a pretty hard beeline it is more like 2 probably and I'm ahead of everyone else. Having a religion has let me catch up more quickly than normal so I might try and get some earlier wonders.
