    I've been having a free time with nothing to do during the quarantine, so I thought of creating a thread for bonus suggestions for world wonders, natural wonders and city-states that you would like to see in the game. I started with 5 wonders of the world that I really want to see in the game and I thought of bonuses that could be fun for each of them: Notre Dame, Neuschwanstein, Zeus Statue, CN Tower and Borobudur. So I went on with 3 famous wonders of nature: Mount Sinai, Sugarloaf Mountain and Grand Canyon. Finally, some city-states that I would like to see implemented: Bagan, Vatican City, Vienna and Teotihuacan.
    Feel free to give your own suggestions of wonders and city-states and their bonuses.

    I think there's a few. I love Utah's Mt. Olympus here along the Wasatch Front - I think it's pretty wondrous.

    OK, personal bias...

    I kinda assumed he was talking about the original one in Greece. It's tall but not extremely tall, and it doesn't have a particularly distinctive massif. (I vacationed in Utah a few years ago. Gorgeous state. Unfortunately I was sick for most of the trip, but I loved the landscape. :D )
