Go into the data folder, and look for rules.xml, right-click the file and select open in notepad. Press Ctrl+F, and type in <POP_CAP> to search for it. From here you can edit the desired population limit entries in quotation marks.

    For example, the end result would be:

  • List of force added Special units

    These are found by pressing enter and typing:/cheat add #(number of that unit) and the type of unit. An example is /cheat add 15 imperial musketeer.
    You get 15 groups of musketeers. Make sure you don't use plural words for this cheat and no capitalization(like shok). These are forced added units I found that can make your game lag if you put too much units.
