    Of course! The good thing about this mod is that it doesn't change core gameplay, meaning I can add any city-state (within reason of course), and it would be pretty hard to find a reason to be angry!

    Awesome! Well I'd suggest Wellington as maritime (for obvious reasons :D ), Bogota as Cultural and maybe Dubai as Mercentile?

    I think my mod was mysteriously removed from the workshop, can anybody else confirm this? If so, maybe we will see a City-State addition dlc.

    There was an issue with Steam Workshop where it claimed all files had been removed, it's back online now

    Being from both Australia and Canada I think a couple of these are out of place.

    I suggest Melbourne as well as a Cultural city, in place of Adelaide which can move to Maritime, and add Brisbane to Maritime. That makes the Australia list as follows:

    Maritime: Sydney (existing), Perth, Adelaide, Brisbane
    Cultural: Melbourne (really wouldn't mind if Sydney was made Cultural)

    On the Canada side I suggest Toronto and Vancouver be made cultural city states. If you're looking to keep numbers roughly even I suggest Halifax and St. John's as Maritime, both Canadian east coast cities. So the Canada layout:

    Maritime: Quebec (existing), St John's, Halifax
    Cultural: Toronto, Vancouver (again wouldn't mind if Quebec moved here)

    Meh just some thoughts. Now that I think about it, some of those could be Mercantile, too.

    Maybe you could add Tel-Aviv or Jaffa as a mercantile CS to diversify the Palestinian towns.

    Nice job! You may want to check the popular "not another city states" mod (NACSM), which is more or less defunct now I believe, for more inspiration. I also added a bunch in my own mods you may consider. I have the XML for them of course, so should you add some I can send it and save you the grind ;) They are:

    Religious:
    - Amritsar (Sikh)
    - Ifè (Yoruban)

    Cultural:
    - Pagan / Bagan (can't believe this is not in the game!)
    - Tbilisi
    - Angkor
    - Sri Lanka (Polynesians have island names... who recognizes "Anuradhapura"?)
    - Kuhikugu

    Mercantile:
    - Quito (Caras)
    - Bacatá / Bogotá (Muisca)
    - Punt
    - Great Zimbabwe
    - Riga

    Militaristic:
    - Cairo (see my comment on "Pagan")
    - Assur
    - Hattusa
    - Vilnius
    - Oyo
    - Veii (Etruscan)

    Some that are in another civ's city list, but really deserve a place:
    - Aoudaghost (Ghana) [Songhai]
    - Samarkand (Sogdian / Timurid) [Mongolian]


    EDIT: Because I'm procrastinating, I took a good look at the present CSs, so here are some remarks:
    - Why Faisalabad? I know Lahore and Karachi are in the Indian city list; this picks seems to be just "the next largest city". I'd take Islamabad or remove Karachi from the Indian city list; it's the last entry anyway.
    - Cultured might be better for Guadalajara.
    - I don't see Haifa as religious. Besides, 3 (currently) Israeli/Palestinian religious CSs is overkill.
    - I fail the get impressed when reading about Maputo. I think there are better picks on the African east coast.

    Anyway, some small disagreements to an otherwise good list :)

    How about adding Königsberg as a militaristic city-state? It's not in german city-list for some reason, nor in russian. I think Teutonic Order and Prussia are too important to be overlooked.

    I have created a mod that adds ten new CS based on famous video game cities and nations, to the game. The CS appear when I load the mod, but the names are messed up. For example, instead of Goldenrod City, the CS shows up as TXT_KEY_CITYSTATE_GOLDENROD_CITY. All ten CS names are like that, but otherwise the mod works. How do I fix this annoying problem?

    Did you make the text rows? Something such as
    <Row Tag="TXT_KEY_GOLDENROD_CITY">
    <Text>Goldenrod City</Text>
    </Row>
