In Civ 5 you can't build two cities near 4 tiles, is it possible to increase this limit to 8?

E.g. You can't build two cities within 8 or less tiles between.

I feel in late game the continent map is so crowded with sooooo many cities, I think making cities more sparse would be more fun for me. After city area expansion max out, there would still be a gap between cities where you can pass through to hit players you don't like.

    I don't think this is possible from within the game settings. Someone might come up with an answer for you that involves a mod, or digging around ini files.

    I know that it is a single setting in some XML, I just completely forgot where and what though. You can definitely change it.

  • Keep in mind that maximum city expansion range is 5 tiles, not 3. So technically you'll need a minimum range of 11. Though in practice it usually takes cities a long while before they get to 5 tiles.
