You mean that since they have been stored as separate bits (and not
as id number), it would have been possible to have them independently
in same tile. I don't think it has ever been really possible for
player. Fortress and airbase have replaced each other. I think this is
correct behavior. Do you have some good use-case where multiple bases
should exist in same tile?
Note that even with just one base/tile main reason I have not pushed
gen-base code in faster is memory and disk space (savegame) usage.
There will be player num (FoW, what players believe)) + 1 (truth) base
maps. If you allow multiple bases in the same tile, you need one
bit/tile/basetype. With just one base/tile you can have
2^(bits/tile)-1 base types. I even consider adding just one more base
type in next version by using those specials bits we have been using
