Change Starting Money, More
Open config.ini in the root directory with Notepad and find the following text at the bottom:
HasResidence = 1
Workshops = 0
Money = 10000
Married = 0
You can change how much money you start with and whether you are married already or not. And if you choose to be married then you can also add: Childs=(# of kids).
Below that you can also edit the starting stats of the rival families.
Note: Always make a backup before overwriting game files.
