maps with different projection ?

Smallpox vs. largepox, gen2 vs gen5, early war vs. peaceful alliances. Which is your favourite gaming style?

maps with different projection ?

I suppose ordinary Earth maps in Freeciv use Mercator projection ?
Are other ones available anywhere ? (Obviously not just images but maps containing terrain type so a civ game can use them.)
I'm especially interested in Winkel-tripel projection, which looked like a good compromise to me, at least for a video game (Mercator destroys sizes, Gall-Peters destroys shapes...)
