    Re probability of a building surviving city capture:
    I disagree with the 100 percenters (and ESPECIALLY for Wonders)! 2/3 .. 3/4 chance would give variability.
    Predictability (again, especially for world wonders) to me is NOT a good thing.

    (I presume national wonders are 0%.)

    While you’re at it, could you reduce the victory points for world wonders from 25 to zero or 1? 🙂
    Wonder conquest should be for the wonder functions, not for the points.

    • Wonders have not changed from vanilla. The changes only affected buildings. The 100% chance is specifically to increase the maintenance cost of newly captured cities. Reducing the point value of world wonders would primarily reduce culture victory scores, which are already 25% the score of conquest victories.

    “Wonders have not changed from vanilla. ”

    Yes, I understand; it just upsets me that vanilla — in all of the civ iterations — gave so much value to building or capturing (with no chance of their being destroyed) wonders. The value of wonders should be their intrinsic value, blast it.

    No civ city’s infrastructure should be totally immune to destruction after a battle for the city. It’s just ‘too gamey.’ It would be a great improvement if the 100%s was even reduced to only 90-95% (rather than my suggested 70).

    (Please take into account my CFC sig: ‘Gameplay may trump realism, but gameplay WITH realism trumps gameplay without!’).

    • The reason I increased the survival rate of some buildings is I reduced that rate for others. Without these corresponding adjustments, captured cities would have fewer buildings overall.
