    Default What in the world?

    So I was in the middle of a campaign as the Julii when I decided to take a look at Greece, and noticed something funny. There was a weird looking village where there should normally be the Statue of Zeus wonder. So I moved the mouse over it and well, I think I'll let the pics speak for themselves:


    Here is the picture of the Statue of Zeus, or at least where the Statue of Zeus should be.

    I then decided to check the other Wonder locations to see if they were affected as well.

    Lighthouse at Alexandria


    Mausoleum at Halicarnassus


    The Collosus of Rhodes was also affected, and it was also replaced by a small village icon on the map. Sadly, the pic I took was messed up somehow. The rest of the wonders remained the same.

    Just so you all know, this is on Vanilla RTW, with no real mods except for a few reskins and the "Wonders Battlefields" mod. Pretty interesting easter egg, huh? Or did the "Wonders Battlefields" mod make this as a practical joke?

    Either it is a good easter egg, or you're quite talented in editing screenshots. But it is some funny stuff nonetheless.

    It was probably the Wonders Battlefields mod. Remember that their mod is to do with wonders (the title gives it away from the start). The Statue of Zeus thing is particularly funny.

    Try double clicking them...

    I did that, and it just shows the description for the normal Wonders.

    Easter Egg for sure, and a hoot.
