City States
Is there a way to reduce their numbers? In Civ V you could custom choose how many there would be in the world. I hate starting a game and being surrounded by 8 City States by turn 30. Having less of them means they are more valuable.

Copy paste of my thread from earlier for ya:

For those that want less, No or reduce city states:

go to your steam folder - steam apps - common - sid miere's civilization vi - base - assets - maps - utility - and find the file named " AssignStartingPlots"

First: Back up the file. If you break it, it's not my fault.
After the file is backed up, right click and hit edit: Find the line that says " self.iNumMinorCivs = PlayerManager.GetAliveMinorsCount(); " and change it to " self.iNumMinorCivs = 0; " This will set number of city states to 0. If you want a few but less, change " 0 " to the number you want.

NOTE: Make sure it's the line that says "MinorCivs" not "MajorCivs". Minor is the second one listed.

FYI: Default city states is 1.5 times the default number of players. (On huge, default is 18 city states and 12 civs but can go up to 24 city states if i read some files correctly)

Hope this helps. And make sure you have the ; at the end of the line or you will break stuff.

I find your detail curious in light of your usage of spaces and hypens to denote folders. If you're going to describe a system of options in sequence, (that are not folders) I prefer the pipe. It looks more coolerer. But then again, no use in confusing people that would be confused with actualy giving the path to the file in question.

Also, this works the same way... And although I like your suggestion better, this is how you can change your ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ city names too :)
