There are instructions to access the Civ 6 Worldbuilder in civfanatics forums.

The TZ mod method allows starting with a custom map, but there are no generated city states.

How can I add city states to the map / mod so the game does not crash on the first turn?

  • \$\begingroup\$ It sounds like you might get better answers on the civ modding forum where you found these instructions originally. Very few game developers here are also experienced Civ 6 modders, so while your question is not off-topic, it's less likely to find the right experts here. \$\endgroup\$ – DMGregory Jul 23 '17 at 15:15

Meeting the original criteria: no crash

It seems the city state must be random. Specific city states seem to crash.

Step by step:

  1. Add CS starting position (random) on map.
  2. Go to top left corner "Player Editor".
  3. Set civilization level to CIVILIZATION_LEVEL_CITY_STATE
  4. Leave selected cilization at Random.

However the map editor only allows adding up to 10 players.

More City States

A good way of getting past the limit is installing sqlitebrowser and using that to edit the map file. Change the last players to CIVILIZATION_LEVEL_CITY_STATE and you will get more city states on the map. :)
