I don't understand your point. Saving games are a vital point for the
use of Freeciv. The best approach is a GUI option that allows setting of
the game name and how often it is saved. These options in the GUI are
already there, they are just not accessible when you start a game (See
"Start new game" --> "More game options" --> "Internal"), they are shown
as "(hidden)". It looks to me as it were simple to change this.
A smaller point, but seems easy to fix, too, is, the "Turns per
autosave" option (accesible once you're in game) goes 0, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10,
so I can't set "1" without keyboard use. ;)
If I'm right, and these are easy to fix, I'd really like to this soon. I
stumble on it each and every game.
