Ok, I have to explain myself. I don't criticize Thue, and I enjoy the
fog of war feature, but I have the feeling that implementing isometric
view into Freeciv would cost too many efforts for the interest it
brings. There has already been many discussions about this subject in
the past because of Civ2 compatibility. But I know some people that
don't like the isometric view. I have NEVER been against eye candy gfx,
and I would certainly contribute for some, for example diplomatic ones.
Please everybody tell us whether you find it useful to work on isometric

view or not, so that we all don't jump right into something useless.
