Description
Found on the Swiss-Italian border, the Matterhorn is a large Mountain which is arugably the most iconic in all of Europe. It is 4,478 metres tall, and was not climbed sucessfully until 1865, when a team of seven reached the summit on June the 14th. The peak had long striked fear into the hearts of climbers, and this was intensified when four of the seven in the first team to climb fell to their deaths on the decent, one of whom was never found. Much like a normal Natural Wonder, the Matterhorn provides a specific yield, in this case 4 Culture and 3 science. It also provides an additional 2 happiness, and becomes available with Acoustics

Requires Gods & Kings expansion pack, and credit to Sukritact for the icon

ah ok, well you could change the name a bit maybe to have something to do with mountain climbing, maybe when you finish the wonder a great artist from your civ is the first person ever to climb matterhorn, good mod otherwise! another cool wonder to do with mountains would be the alps tourist skiing resort, or maybe a normal building, you have to have a mountain in arctic climate within 2 squares of your city and you can build a ski resort

For the fifiteth time we can't add new natural wonders yet, so we've added them through the wonder function.

how do you actually build an mountain?shouldnt it have been a natural wonder instead?

Yeah, you need to be next to a mountain

Do you need to be next to a mountain to build it? I like the idea of building a mountain wonder that makes a nearby mountain "The Matterhorn." At that point my imagination can rationalize it as that particular mountain becoming famous in the eyes of the world.

I thought it is a natural wonder :/
But still pretty cool

Sure a civilisation can't build a mountain but it does build the infrastructure and interest around a mountain that makes it a wonder, just ask Paramount Pictures :) My point is that though the mountain (or lake in the case of the Lake Titicaca wonder) itself is not 'built' by a civ the tourism, interest and cultural significance surrounding such wonders are 'built' by the civilisation, it is people that make a mountain a wonder. Well that's one way to look at it until 2K get off their behinds and do something about it. It would also be nice to see an in-game graphic representation of user created wonders, but again this is a limitation placed on modders by the publishers. Keep 'em comin' I say - maybe a Lake Eyre wonder or maybe the Pohutu Geyser???

Because currently it's impossible to add a new natural wonder with a new model to the game
