Just wanted to let you know, in the version downloadable from the OP(0.95), all unit classes have "?unitclass:" in front of their names, except for small sea units. Might want to fix that, just in case this gets included and translated.
Other than that, keep it up!

thnx for the "bug report". The mistake is corrected. In the meantime I already made some other changes but I wont release a new version yet. I must see how I will connect the techs from tribal to ancients and probably some changes in the tribal techs will change.

Nice. Are ancient era ships able to carry settlers and horsies?

Yes i plan that they have a cargo capacity for small land units. The quinquereme is a larger ship, and it would be able to carry horses as well, but the capacity will probably be one "horse" unit.

The trade ship (junk ship) is done:

This one was tricky; it is a combination of 2d and 3d elements assembled and color corrected.

So it will not be able to carry more than one "small unit" either. Freeciv has no concept of unit "size". I think we could implement that for 2.6 (bigger units taking more cargo space). Would you find it useful?

I don't know about ngunjaca, but it would open a ton of new possibilities, and I might as well use it in an own ruleset.

YES, It will definitely be a nice and useful option. I would also like to see an option to limit the unit number per tile which again is defined in a "size" so we can for instance have one tile with five small land units or 2 big and one small land unit or whatever other combo. Cities would have more "capacity". Id like to hear some other opinions on this.

BTW i saw the new roads system implemented in the trunk freeciv version, all i can say we waited for this a very loooong time and it is great to see it there.

Yeah, would be a nice idea. Unit classes have a size attribute, terrain types have a capacity attribute, and through effects, the capacity could be increased. That would be my idea. In the default ruleset, all unit classes should probably have a size of 0 though.
