    The updated Wonders Expanded is here!!:woohoo:

    Monte Carlo Casino
    - loses free jewellery
    - now have 3 slots of music
    - theming will give +4 :c5gold:, +4 :c5culture: and +2 :tourism:

    This is to fit with more of how they have an opera theatre part of Monte Carlo Casino as well as to compete with the Louve better

    Al-Masjid an Nabawi
    - 33% ➛ 25% Great Writer Generation (to be more equal to the other holy wonders)

    Solomon Temple
    - +4 :c5culture: & :c5faith: ➛ +3 :c5culture: & :c5faith: (same reason as Al-Masjid an Nabawi)

    Also thanks to @Asterix Rage for helping me and providing the 2 new Promo Icon!!

    Update to my Update (was attempting this for a while and it finally worked for me so I've decided to post here! yay!)

    I'm planning to add more wonders to this more wonders mod as I realised that Infixo calculated this mod with conjunction to enlightenment era mod of his + I wanted to make it a nicer number (30 new wonders sounds nicer than 29)

    So I thought maybe add a new wonder called Museum Island (see the image for it)

    Is it too op for its time? Or op in general? Or should I add another wonder instead?
    I don't know 0-0

    I'll upload the new version with museum island soon for you guys to test~

    EDIT: it will still be able to be unselected in the files similar to the others

    As long it can be unselected that's fine.

    That's what I do. I use to unselect about 10 wonders in (9) Wonders Expanded (v 2.1.2)\SQL\VPWE_Auto.sql
    Very easy to do it.

    Now, a few more Wonders would be welcome to counter balance difficult situations. Like snow, tundra or Desert with no fresh water

    Not enough for me. MCC should be a fountain of gold and Tourism vs The Louvre, a fountain of Culture and Tourism
    Theming is useless while It takes long to fill the slots. Also, the Broadcast Towers give more with less slot.

    At my end, MCC give 1 gold for 2 pops in the City. Cash

    Yes, I agree. I play with a version that I modified :
    Grants a free Hotel and +1 Jewelery. All Hotels generate +2 :tourism: Tourism and +3 :c5gold: Gold. When you spend :c5gold: Gold in this City, 20% of the cost is converted into :tourism: Tourism.

    Ooh, new shinies and some balance (I agree that Karnak starts could become ludicrous snowballs). Was just about to start a new game too, so this works :)

    With the new VP updates, how does everyone feel about the placements of all the ancient wonders? And more importantly, with the new Alhambra changes does Forge of Damascus feel less compelling/strong now compared to Alhambra?

    is fine imo

    Play first and take your time to make changes
    and pls keep the spirit of the mod: we do not change what VP base does

    Anyone still maintaining this? I suggest changing VPWE_Lakes.lua. From this:

    Code:
    function CityCanConstruct(iPlayer, iCity, iBuildingType)
       --dprint("FUNSTA CityCanConstruct()", iPlayer, iCity, iBuildingType);
       -- if this is NOT a tracked Building then quit immediately
       if not tValidBuildings[iBuildingType] then return true; end
       local pPlayer = Players[iPlayer];
       if not pPlayer:IsAlive() then return false; end
       local pCity = pPlayer:GetCityByID(iCity);
       if pCity:IsCoastal(1) and not pCity:IsCoastal(10) then
           --dprint("FUNEND Lake!");
           return true;
       end
       --dprint("FUNEND NOT Lake!");
       return false;
    end
    To this:

    Code:
    function CityCanConstruct(iPlayer, iCity, iBuildingType)
       --dprint("FUNSTA CityCanConstruct()", iPlayer, iCity, iBuildingType);
       -- if this is NOT a tracked Building then quit immediately
       if not tValidBuildings[iBuildingType] then return true; end
       local pPlayer = Players[iPlayer];
       if not pPlayer:IsAlive() then return false; end
    
       local pCity = pPlayer:GetCityByID(iCity);
       local iCityX = pCity:GetX();
       local iCityY = pCity:GetY();
    
       if pCity:IsCoastal(1) then -- city is adjacent to at least one coast/lake tile
           -- check all six dir for at least one lake tile
           for dir = 0, DirectionTypes.NUM_DIRECTION_TYPES - 1 do
               if Map.PlotDirection(iCityX, iCityY, dir):IsLake() then
                   --dprint("FUNEND Lake!");
                   return true;
               end
           end
       end
       --dprint("FUNEND NOT Lake!");
       return false;
    end
    Makes the lake wonders work with cities which are both coastal and adjacent to a lake.

    And you should resign from Solomon's Temple, becuase Israel nation will be integrated into VP as I spoke to @pineappledan.
