    Yes, it is possible.
    Go to the Civ 4 Directory, Assets/XML/GameInfo/WorldInfo.xml
    Play around, that's how I did it.
    Oh, don't forget to make a backup.

    P.S.
    If you want to wait, I will be publishing my first MOD in the next week or so, & it has a "Monster" map.

    All right here is are some more in depth instructions.

    <WorldInfo>
    <Type>
    <Description>
    <Help>
    <iDefaultPlayers> Number of players on map (max 18)
    <iUnitNameModifier>
    <iTargetNumCities>
    <iNumFreeBuildingBonuses>
    <iBuildingClassPrereqModifier>
    <iMaxConscriptModifier>
    <iWarWearinessModifier>Increase to reduce war weariness (I think)
    <iGridWidth>the width of the map
    <iGridHeight>the Height of the map
    <iTerrainGrainChange>
    <iFeatureGrainChange>
    <iResearchPercent>increase to increase tech development time
    <iTradeProfitPercent>
    <iDistanceMaintenancePercent>reduce to reduce distance maintenance
    <iNumCitiesMaintenancePercent>max free cities
    <iNumCitiesAnarchyPercent>increae to increase the length of anarchy (I think)
    </WorldInfo>

    Now the <GridHeight> & <GridWidth> have to be multiplyed by 4 to get the actual map size.

    Now w/ some exparimentation you should be able to make so nice maps.

    If I have something wrong correct me.
