Best way to change the desktop icon spacing?

It seems things have changed since the thread I linked below. So I'd like to ask for some help with changing the icon spacing on the desktop. In the 2nd reply to that thread, there's an excellent little gif showing what I'm trying to do. For me, the icons just sit too far apart. Making it difficult for me to have as many icons there as I need. As a new user still trying to come over from Windows, this is very important to me.

So if this is the right place for it, I'd like to make a request to the KDE team to put in some means of easily adjusting the icon spacing on the desktop. If this is not the right place to make that request, please let me know. So does anyone know how exactly you change the spacing? It used to be that you had to go into a certain file located in usr and change a couple of different numbers in the code. Is it still that way? Perhaps there's an easier method that I'm unaware of?

Feature requests are pretty useless in a forum mostly visited my users and support volunteers, those need to be filed to the actual teams working on things, and the easiest way is by filing a wish in https://bugs.kde.org

As for the silence: probably due to the request being in the wrong place, and/ or your relative impatience (9 days for a very specialized request the average volunteer can't act upon), and/or because the world right now is occupied with more pressing issues?
