    I find City Walls OTT. I've read all the justifications why online. Nonetheless I'd like to mofify them to calm down their effect. Alternatively, a modifier that doubles the number of shields required to build City Walls. (That might meet the justifications of those who think the effect of City Walls is about right whilst recognising that a much bigger investment must go in to building city walls than the game gives.)

    I don't want to change anything else as all else is great! I've never used any sort of modification before.

    I'm using Civ 2 Multiplayer Gold with Civ2UIALauncher. Win 10.
    I'd like a recommendation of something simple and easy if possible.
    Thanks for any help.

    (Hope this is the right place to ask. I've put this in both general discussion and tech support. Could a mod please delete whichever is in the wrong place.)

    In your rules.txt file, there is a line
    Code:
    City Walls,               8,  0,    Mas,
    
    By changing the 8 to 16, you will double the production cost of city walls. You might also increase the maintenance cost of walls (default 0) if you want to discourage their use.

    If you want to get Test of Time and use the Test of Time Patch Project, you can modify the defensive bonus of city walls.

    Incidentally, back when I played the base game (before I got involved with Lua events), I seldom built city walls, and it was typical to leave most of my cities undefended.
