    If you only have one suitable drive and need to shorten the install path for BtS then the only option would be to re-install steam as close to the root of the drive.
    This is the shortest you can get it with steam:
    C:\Steam\steamapps\common\Sid Meier's Civilization IV Beyond the Sword\Beyond the Sword\Mods\Caveman2Cosmos​
    It is short enough to avoid any problems with the path length to the deepest C2C assets.

    A custom game installation location would still have the same folder structure as games installed within the steam software location, so there is no way to avoid this "[Drive Letter]:\Steam\steamapps\common\"

    Yes, that seems legit.
    But I would cation those who are not comfortable with editing the windows registry that you can seriously break your system by making the wrong change in there.

    If you feel insecure about editing the registry my advice is not to do it, though following guides like that is usually safe if you understand everything the guide is saying and feel sure that the guide is tested and true.

    The Group Policy Editor method described there is however completely safe in comparison to the registry hack method.

    I can't say for sure that this will work for BtS
