For more information about these wonders, their yields and their effects, please check the pinned thread below.

Civilization VI is about playing the map, and Natural Wonders now play a larger part in this.

Ownership Effects
Each Natural Wonder now provides a unique effect for owning at least one of their tiles. No longer will units stroll next to a Natural Wonder and receive an ability that lasts until they upgrade. The unique effects range from affecting the immediate owning city, trained units, or your empire.

Yield Rebalance
As a result of each wonder providing an ownership effect, the yields of each wonder have been rebalanced (where necessary). All impassable Natural Wonders will now provide +2 Yields on adjacent plots, and all other wonders will have +5 Yields on their own plots. For Gathering Storm, we've limited the adjacent yields of volcanic natural wonders to +1 Yield on adjacent plots, given their yield stacking throughout the game.

District Adjacency
Natural Wonders would sometimes pose a hindrance by the fact that placing a district on top of affected tiles means you lose the yields they provide. To compensate for this, specialty districts now receive standard adjacency bonuses from being constructed next to a natural wonder, which will increase with each building constructed within them.

National Parks
Natural Wonders often play a large role in the placement of National Parks, so we've changed them too. National Parks will now yield Gold equal to their Tourism output.

Other Changes
- Lowered the distance between Natural Wonders from 8 tiles to 7. This will increase the chances of them appearing closer to each other, thus freeing up space to fit more on the map.
- Doubled the amount of natural wonders that will spawn on each map size. While this won't guarantee that you will see X amount of wonders in the game, it will increase the likelihood of it. An example: Huge Maps now have 14 Natural Wonders, as opposed to the default 7.
- Increased the unit XP received for discovering a Natural Wonder, +15 up from +10.

User Settings
With the wide scope of this mod, one of the core aims was to make it flexible for users who may not agree with, nor want, all of the changes we have made, so we've built our framework around a user-settings file that will allow you to edit everything above, and even disable any Natural Wonders in the game.

The user settings file can be found in the following directory. Please be aware that your settings will be overwritten when this mod is updated, so keep a copy of your user settings somewhere so that you don't lose them.

Terra Mirabilis does not require the expansion or any of the DLCs to work. Validation has been built into the mod and is compatible with or without them.

Gedemon's YNAMP
The Natural Wonders in this mod have TSL in YNAMP maps.

Mod Compatibility
Other mods that make changes to existing Natural Wonders or other things that are within the scope of this mod are unlikely to be compatible. This doesn't apply to new wonders added to the game via mods, they will be just fine to use alongside this :)

Translations will now be kept separately from this mod so that they can be updated without affecting existing saved games. Please check the collection up top.

The current version of Terra Mirabilis is v2.21.4. Current and previous versions will be available to download manually here[].

Please refer to the change notes for a full list of changes.

This mod has been bug-tested but if you think we might have missed something, please provide detailed information in the pinned conversation below and we can look into it for you.

Builder Lag Issue
While every step has been taken to reduce builder lag that occurs in the late game, it is unfortunately something that needs to be fixed by Firaxis. In the meantime, please check the collection up top to find a workaround called Builder Lag Fix by Adriaman.

To pOkiehl, Digihuman, Sailor Cat and SeelingCat for the encouragement, enthusiasm and support throughout <3

More natural wonder suggestion
< >

Perhaps you are right, and the authors do not give feedback.
But, suddenly, someone who knows how to make mods will take it up.
I suggest a few "Natural Wonders"
1) Reynisfjara Beach
2) National Reserve "White Sands"
3) Iguazu Falls
4) Angel
5) Milford
6) Belovezhskaya Pushcha
7) Eisriesenwelt
8) Baikal

plz note that the mod has not been updated in 2 years. I really doubt there will be any update since the authors have not responded to any of the posts here.

Dear authors of this beautiful mod.
Are you planning to add new "NEW NATURAL WONDERS?"

Welcome! ;-)

Got it - thank you! Appreciate the clear explanation :)

After clicking [Subscribe] (Green Box underneath the Images scroller), Steam uploads all necessary files into some ..workshop/content/289070 folder that considers this MOD as installed and ready to play.
Once you load the game.. its main menu option "Additional Content > Mods" makes a direct list of everything activated including Terra Mirabilis.

cliff dover doesn't work, harbor has no adj bonus

Well it would solely spend if ye computer has the beef, number of Ai's , city states , other settings , number of mods. The number of natural wonders in a game ranges from 2 to 7 depending on map size (equal to the number of continents plus one). This mod terra mirabilis increases it to something like three per continent , can be changed in game user settings. Me stick standard(5) , with this mod evens it out with bit more with mild to medium number of settings. :Diplomat:

Hey what is the max number of wonders can you have if playing on a colasol sized map. Cause in my current game I have. About three wonders not appearing on the map visual wise but the surrounding tiles are getting the tile bonus
