Can that even be done for civics?
FYI Other than settler units the great wonder "The Great Bath of M..." gives the owner an extra pop when you settle a city. I have noticed a bug which means that it does not always go obsolete properly.
I will see if I can get the malaria part of my disease mod done this week. It is supposed to replace all terrain with population scailling cost to grow and loss of production. I have been side tracked from this mod for to long.
When I looked into it last year or so the answer seemed to be 'not without modding the dll' so it wasn't something I could test. But I would imagine it would be something like copying the code that does the per capita health bonus on aquaduct / sewers and inserting it into the civics code, and adding the appropriate tags to the schema and civics xmls.
If you wanted to, you could probably change the "city requires +% more food to grow" penalties into +0.X / Pop too. I've noticed one problem with the food levels is when you switch civics and lose or reduce the penalty, a city that has 100 / 120 stored suddenly has 100 / 60 stored so it grows right away; and with granary/ice house/shaman hut/housing buildings/etc. it keeps 50-75% of that 100 , and with food production next turn it has (100 * 75%)+10 = 85 / 70 stored so you get two or three straight turns of growth.
If you went from 20 - 30 = -10 consumed to 20 - 20 = 0 consumed you'd start growing again but without a sudden population boom.
