    Niter
    Coal
    Oil
    Aluminum
    Uranium

    Luxury Resources:
    Amber
    Cinnamon
    Citrus
    Cloves
    Cocoa

    I don't think potatoes should be a bonus resource. The great thing about potatoes other than providing the highest caloric content per acre is that they can be grown just about anywhere.

    There really isn't conditions where potatoes grow worse than other crops. They are extremely hardy with the exception of potatoe blight. I would suggest for a bonus resource instead to be nut trees( almond, pecan, walnut, and brazil) with maybe macadamias being a luxury.

    Honey as a luxury. I guess with camps. Collect the honey from the bees. :mischief:
    Llama as a luxury as well. First luxury from a pasture I think.
    In that case why not let potatoes spawn on hills and maybe you can exclusively farm a hill early game if there is a potato resource.
    P.S. we are also getting Amber, Olives and Turtles
    That reminds me of Dates as well for a luxury.

    Perhaps Turquoise and Turkeys could be interesting choices off the top of my head though I'm still not sure what kind of resources they should be. I also agree with adding Honey and Corn!

    Sturgeon for a lake luxury resource.

    Beans and Squash as bonus resources, to complete the Three Sisters.

    Pitch as a strategic resource required to build Renaissance era ships.

    Also some luxuries that would be gathered through lumber mills:

    Cedar (luxury)

    Teak (bonus)
