Increase the Number of Science Bulbs Generated by a Library

In playing Freeciv, I have noticed that my science (bulb) production is consistently less than the AI even-though I have libraries and and greater literacy. I think it would be more realistic to have your literacy percentage be closer to science (bulb) production. What I would like to accomplish is ...

Re: FreeCiv Version 6.0 - Spy

Thanks for taking a look at it. On the Sid Meier's versions of civilization, a spy (diplomat) can jump directly from a ship into a city and do actions such as steal technology or incite a revolt. With Freeciv, the spy (diplomat) must first land on a non-city tile. An impediment as the spy can't ente...

FreeCiv Version 6.0 - Spy

The ability of a spy to inspect (enter) a city from a transport did NOT work. So I would say that this is a bug.
Using FreCiv version 6.0 with default ruleset.

FreeCiv Version 6.0 - Pollution and Population

I would like to see in the city display a " p " if there is pollution in the city. I keep missing the graphic representation of pollution in the view mode. The demographic report needs to display the rate of population growth (1st, 2nd, 3rd). Knowing if you are first is good, but you may b...

Expand Horizontal Dimension of the Set-up Screen

My monitor has a high resolution (2560x1440) screen. Consequently the set-up screen gets truncated. The set-up screen can be expanded, but that has to be done each time. Two possible approaches to fix. One, make the set-up screen larger horizontally. Two, have the computer remember the dimension.

Re: Barbarians

Thanks for the advice. I do use Democracy as the government and I select the highest science rate possible. All thoughts are appreciated on how to improve the game.

Re: Barbarians

I've noticed that. I have also noticed that even when first on literacy, I can be last on research bulbs in many cases. :(
Even late in the game, when I am both first in literacy and first in population; I can still be last in research bulbs.

Apollo Program and the World Map

According the the rule set for the Apollo Program: "The entire map becomes permanently visible to the player who owns it ...". I find that to be incongruous as in the real world everyone has access to the world map. Additionally freeciv has the AWACS unit. With that in mind I would like to...

Barbarians

A major irritant is that barbarian units seem to be invariably technologically ahead. This has the undesirable effect of forcing city wall construction, warrior code, and researching gunpowder. Of course this can be partially alleviated through the game set-up for barbarians. Nevertheless, I would l...

Population Growth Indicator

Under the "demographics" tag, freeciv displays your population ranking compared to the other nations. While that informs you of your ranking, it does not inform you concerning whether your ranking is improving or declining relative to the other nations. Note that there is a research speed ...
