comment What is the starting bias for different factions?
In short, I don't think the starting location is the sole attribute modified via the Start Bias; it's "start" bias, not "starting location" bias.

Are you a developer of this game, who would be in a position to confirm that XML is the sole driver of the game's logic and behavior? Also, have you fully investigated the XML for the wonders? It might be such that the wonders don't play a role in civ placement, but the placement of civs might play a role in wonder placement (dependency reversed from your wording).

It might be possible that "start bias" also refers to the placement of natural wonders; I noticed once that when I was the Japanese, I spawned very close to Mt. Fuji.

You just made me realize my major hang-up with this game.

Bah! What fun is it to finally be able to produce jets and subs and nukes, but then never actually use them?
