Civserver takes the option "-r" and reads a file, for example 
"civserver -r settings.script".

settings.script should contain all the commands you would normally type 
into the server, for example:

set aifill 7
set dispersion 10
set settlers 3
sett explorers 7

Don't tell the main development team, tell the people who port Freeciv 
to Windows or the people who port GTK+ to Windows. Most of the main 
developers don't have Windows anyway so they won't be able to test and 
try to fix it.
