This would be wonderful! I actually looked at doing it 18+ months ago,
but decided it would be too much for me. It would need data support
for elevations (and depths), among other things.
And I'm a network protocol guy, not a game graphics guy. (I've hardly
looked at the freeciv protocol, don't blame me.)

When I first tried freeciv, it was to play with my brothers. They were
not impressed with the UI, compared to then current civ3.
Now, amplio is much nicer visually. I wish there were something better
for isohex, too.
Anyway, they were seduced by the lovely Civ4.
And we still don't even have civ3 support....
