How big could a vanilla city get by population? 1000000? 10000000? or even up to the 64bit integer limit?

I suppose you could multiply the maximum population of a building by the maximum area a local authority can cover...and allow for streets.

Alternatively, go in the scenario editor, place a town in the centre and spam "expand". Remove all the buildings from the city centre every once in a while to replace them with taller buildings, and repeat until the map is filled.
No pics no clicks. Seriously.

You might not exactly be interested in Ferion, but if you are, have fun :)

About 2.5 mil is the max city possible to grow naturally in vanilla temperate climate.
