Beta Phase 3 update 4

Hey All,

I’ve got another content update for you and re-added wonders as well as a new wonder, the Chichen Itza. The Chichen Itza gives you a powerful defensive edge by giving towers more total health as well as adding a structure health regeneration rate to all of your structures. This makes taking out a tower much more difficult.

Wonders have changed a bit since Civ18. Their cost in coins and hammers have been greatly reduced, but instead they are now destroy-able, and by destroy-able I mean gone. When a wonder is destroyed, the town that built it loses it and any town in the game can then attempt to build the wonder. Wonders have a lot of hitpoints and a high regeneration rate, so it will take at least three players to take down a wonder. Wonders can also be attacked whilst they are being built.

I’ve also created a fancy new way to show destroyed structures. Rather than flashing with fire, destroyed structures will explode and become a pile of rubble. This allows you to identify destroyed structures from a distance, which is particularly useful for towers. The structures’ explosion can damage you, so be aware of that.

Here is a video of me destroying a cannon tower:
