It should be 13. 11 means you don't look beyond the first ring of cities
for new ones and end up putting cities in any open spot between two cities.

11 might work if cities were spaced exactly 5 apart, but 6 or 7 is a
common case, leaving a tiny strip between them and no ability to look
beyond. BTW: this was one of the corecleanup fixes in its settler cleanup.
