I work on a linear infrastructure project that uses a custom survey datums that closely resemble existing datums available in the Library with little adjustment offsets.
Is there anyway to edit the CGS in Microstation library to add new ones so our CAD seed files can match exactly the project GCS?
Microstation CE 10.14.02.01

I believe that Bentley Systems mapping tools, such as OpenCities Map, allow the creation and editing of GCS libraries. As far as I know, MicroStation consumes existing GCS definitions.

I have found this "What's new" video since. It seems it would be possible for our CAD manager to setup through Worksets provided everyone uses update 14+.What's new 14, 15, 15.2 - 3 Create Custom Geographic Coordinate Systems in MicroStation

You will first need to create a user coordinate system library. Check docs.bentley.com/.../GUID-AAF77C12-776B-41E7-A685-1C12EC8D3154.html
Once it is created, you can copy an existing GCS in that user library and make the edits. You can refer docs.bentley.com/.../GUID-5076EEA9-E081-488A-B6D3-884A71F60656.html

You're right! I'm several Updates behind the times: In the past, to create a GCS required an additional piece of software such as Bentley Map. MicroStation now (from Update 14) provides the ability to create a coordinate system without requiring access.
how would you know what values to change to make your custom survey datum work in your custom GCS?
Why arent they using a real published datum, GCS instead of a custom one.. even GIS doesnt like that..
Only you will be using this custom datum how does anyone else share or import your data.... oh my head is being done in.... ouch ouch!!!!
