    Playing Deity now. Need to place my second city. Dont wanna fudge up. Need answer quick. How many tiles is optimal for cities to be from one another?

    They can work 3 hexes away from the city center. You do the math. It doesn't matter if they're a little further or closer though.

    Making sure to place Industrial Districts so they're 6 or less tiles from as many city centers as possible is far more important.

    This is one of those things I can't wait for a mod to show me, too. It'll take the tedium out of trying to figure that out.

    So basicly if I have thight city span (eg. all cities 3 tiles away) placing iundustrial districts is not possible?

    No, they're saying you should cluster your cities just close enough that your Industrial Districts can affect as many cities as possible.

    I think the optimal setting is like this: put the second city 3 tiles apart to the right from the first city, 2 tiles in straightline, and one going up or down. Put the cities like that clockwise with the capital as the center, if possible.. Then put industrial districts two tiles to the left of first city.

    Press "4". That will show you where you can place your cities. Red is no go, grey is ok but lacking water (so less housing to start off with), and green is ideal.

    As for ideal distance...closer seems better to take advantage of industrial zones with factories.

    Is there the same landmass effect as in civ5
    (Cities normally need a 4 tile distance, but they can be at a 3 tile distance if they are on different landmasses)
