National Wonders[]

Unlike global wonders, every civilization can build one of each national wonder regardless of whether or not other civilizations have built it already. All Wonders provide +5 Diplomatic Capital, with the exception of the Headquarters (+3 Diplomatic Capital) and the Spy Agency (+2 Diplomatic Capital).

Wonder Prereqs Effects Notes
Headquarters Headquarters None +4 Energy Energy
+3 Production Production
+2 Science Science
+1 Culture Culture
+6 City Defense
Located in Sponsor's Capital Capital. Automatically moved to new city if capital is captured.
Spy Agency Spy Agency Computing Allows Spy Covert Agents to be recruited. Only wonder in this table that has a cost, 200 Production Production
Culper Lodge Culper Lodge None All Recruiting Spy Covert Agents are automatically Special Agents Rewarded after performing 4 intrigue level operation

Artifact Wonders[]

The Rising Tide expansion adds the Artifact system. Several national wonders may be rewarded to players using this system. These are unlocked by combining Progenitor Artifacts.

Wonder Production
Tessellation Foundry Tessellation Foundry RT only 650 Military Units complete 30% faster
Machine-Assisted Free Will Machine-Assisted Free Will RT only[2] 800 Reduce cost of Leaf Techs by Science15%
Dimension Folding Complex Dimension Folding Complex RT only 300 Cities generate -50% Health Unhealth from population.
Quantum Politics Quantum Politics RT only 400 Increases Virtue acquisition by 20%[3]
Temporal Calculus Temporal Calculus RT only 650 +100% Unit Visibility
Relativistic Data Bank Relativistic Data Bank RT only 400 -1 Intrigue per turn in all Cities


Only one of these can be built in the entire world. If another civilizations has already built one of them, then you can't, and vice versa. Each city can hold an unlimited number of these. Wonders lost in razed cities are lost forever.

The Monomyth virtue, in the knowledge tree, provides +7 Culture Culture for every great Wonder.

All global wonders in Rising Tide by default provide 5 Diplomatic Capital Diplomatic Capital. The Pan-Asian Cooperative gets 6-8 Diplomatic Capital instead, and the first wonder constructed in each city is free.

Projects take up a plot of land. A hex within an extended range of the city building it (6 hexes) is used up. Any improvements or resources on said hex are destroyed to make room for the wonder in question. These are typically related to victory conditions. They have HP and can be destroyed by enemies.
