I absolutely LOVE religious gameplay in Civ games, from Civ 5 and 6. But due to various reasons, that was never incorporated into Freeciv.
Thusly I felt bad about myself and played more Civ 5.
But my laptop can only barely support it. And that will not do. And I have a hard time with square grids, so I couldn't get into Civ 4 in current state.
So I decided to figure out a solution.
I have written up a concept for how Religion could be implemented into a game like Freeciv while remaining sensitive to real world situations. I'll post it here, for now. I don't know if it'll help, and I don't really care if it's used at all, but my main request is just to have religious gameplay in Freeciv.
Here you go:

-Tenants and Doctrines behave like Technologies, lasting the rest of the game when used.
-Tenants and Doctrines stack with each other and copies of themselves. Percentages stack in a compound manner if possible?
