CIVITAS City-States Expanded

City-States Expanded adds 4 new city-state types and over 40 new city-states. Updates and balance changes to existing city-states are also included.


New City-State Types: Agricultural, Consular, Entertainment, and Maritime city-states make their debut! Existing city-states have been reassigned as appropriate.
New City-States: Over 40 new city-states, combining all previous city-state packs published by thecrazyscotsman and p0kiehl as well as new additions. This brings the total number of city-states in the game to over 70.
New Color Scheme: All existing city-state types have had their colors tweaked to better fit in with the new types.
More Robust City-States: City-states receive free Ancient Walls, build more district types, benefit from their own suzerain bonuses, and obtain tiles a bit more easily.
No More Scout Spam: City-states will no longer build recon-class units.
Better Starting Locations: All city-states have had in-depth start biases assigned more appropriate to their historical geographical locations.

I'm using CIVITAS City States Expanded mod, and it has an option for Consular CS to award Loyalty bonus instead of Favor. It used to work, but something happened over the last couple of weeks and the bonus seems to be broken. Might it have anything to do with another mod? I use most of JNR's mods, as well as his City State Bonuses: Community Update, but for the life of my I can't seem to track down the problem.

Dear friends, The following list is offered to your attention.
Countries consisting of 1 city.
Singapore 🇸🇬
Leader - Lee Kwan Yew

Qatar 🇶🇦
it consists of 1 city - Doha
Leader - Halifa bin Hamad Al Tani

Hong Kong 🇭🇰
Leader - Dong Jianhua

Macau 🇲🇴
Leader - Edmund Ho

Luxembourg 🇱🇺
Leader - Jean Benua Nassau

Monaco 🇲🇨
Leader - Albert 1

They are built according to the example of Venice. No more than 1 city per civilization.

I am also ready to discuss creating a Mod. You can suggest other leaders. We can jointly discuss Unique Unit , Civilization Ability, Unique Infrastructure. I can offer my ideas.

I'm trying to use this in a modded game, but I love CQUI too much. Is there anyway to make this compatible with it? I prefer CQUI's changes and would want to integrate these city-states into their interface, but activating both just gives "Unknown Type" errors. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

At what loyalty do you all have the city states? In the file it says 20 is high, but it is not changed. City-states tend to not flip (which is ok, but it must be doable of course). I tend to put it on 15. Or is that too low?

Could some of the city state expansion documentation be included in Civilopedia, particularly under the "City States" section? Would greatly appreciate the addendum included there regarding City State types

It seems city states are using unique units and the barbarian clans are not does this mean it blocks recruiting barbarian unique units?

Hello, I like this mod very much. The city-states are very innovative. However, is it possible to optimize the city-state interface, such as arranging the same types of city-states together, displaying the total number of Envoys, Suzerain, etc., just like infixo's Better City States? These optimizations are useful for understanding the effects of Merchant Confederation, Raj policy, and kilwa kisiwani. Thank you.

I've noticed in my games that the city states have like 20-30 more city defense than the civilizations. Does this mod do anything to buff city state defense?

Is this compatible with Gedemos City State mods?
