    I wonder how many of these big cities are setup using IGE so that they can grow that big. I'm curious to know how many of the 50+ sized cities were actually played (with or without mods) but not using IGE to change the tiles for more benefits.

    Thebes will be 53 or 54 when I finish the Utopia project in 5 or 6 turns. No editing, no mods. As I posted before:

    G+K/King/Continents/Small/Standard

    Lots of flood plains with a few desert hills
    Tradition for Growth + early aqueduct
    Fertility Rites Pantheon
    Hanging Gardens
    Petra
    Swords Into Plowshares and a (mostly) peaceful game.

    I'll try to remember to post a screenshot. I love tall empires, and I usually select growth benefits and end up with a 40+ capital and multiple 30+ cities.

    I can't tell if you're serious or not. That sounds like a theoretical steady-state maximum, but would you really be able to build enough to get there with a start like that?

    Assuming that you ever rolled a start like that, you could if you were playing on a low level with a Time Victory disabled.

    Hm. Yeah. I was thinking of there being some sort of finite time cap.

    With trainer I got it to lvl 46 and I think it was Japan civilization (could get it more but I was bored cause I already won the game and it's not fun cheating), and w/o cheating I think it was lvl 22 back when Civ5 first came out.

    Hi everyone, I'm new here but not to civ games, playing this game since first day civ3 came out :)

    Dunno if we're including BNW, but I just had a size 51 Shoshone capital in a cultural victory around turn 410ish.

    No mods, King level, Fractal map start. I did get the Hanging Gardens, but I never traded food into my capital.

    Tradition + Piety (no food from my religion) + Aesthetics + Freedom (1/2 food specialists).

    I remember I settled about 8-9 Great people, like 5 Prophets and 3 Engineers.

    Also as Shoshone, my second settled city must have been up to 30 pop even without micromanagement but a choice city spot next to Lake Victoria. Went Liberty early though so I didn't get the Hanging Gardens, and missed Petra when Sweden beat me to it :mad:

    my highest is 30 with Austria. But the game is still active, so I reckon it will be somewhere mid the 30's when it's all said and done. I usually stagnate somewhere around 22-25pop.

    Weird question (that may have already been asked/answered here), but does anyone have a list of how the city size number correlates to actual population? That was a neat feature in 3 (never played 4, so not sure if it was in there).

    My biggest city was with Venice (nearly 62 and still growing fast).

    Spoiler :

    I had Temple of Artemis, Hanging Gardens, every food based building, a religion (Fertility Rites + Feed the World), two food trade routes, Tradition social policy, Freedom ideology (Civil Society) and every great person slot filled.

    I think I was in the high 40's or even 50's in Tenochlitlan in Vanilla. I built every food building I could get and just put it on food focus for the entire game.

    I had 5 or 6 50 plus cities as Gandhi once. I went very wide with them - it was painful until about the industrial era. After that I never dropped below 50 happiness.
