Hello. Do you know how the mechanics of surrender to the settlement after a certain amount of siege turn? Do you know in which file I can modify it? I wanted to increase number of turns after which the settlement will surrender. Thanks.

I do not think it is possible to modify siege time. It appears to be hard-coded in relation to the size of the settlement under siege.
There are some mods that claim to use the surrender parameters in scripts which change differnt things- siege time is one of them- but that is a roundabout workaround that might be only for very advanced modders (which I am not).
I also poked around the files I thought it might be in and wasn't able to find any modifiable numbers, so it seems to be hard-coded.

It is only possible to increase the length a city can hold out by either Upgrading the settlement to maximum or, i believe, having it max garrisoned also helps But no there isnt a way to modify the files to have a "Set" amount of turns, as others have said it is hard coded.
As a side note.... I personally think it would take the fun out of it, I like the race to reinforce an undermanned settlement.... but thats just me
