        Unfortunately, both the numbers of buildings/improvements and
their effects are hard-coded into FreeCiv at present (see also the recent
discussion re: the Lighthouse wonder). Although there has been some work
on "generalised" improvements, at present all the code does is read in the
rulesets and store the data. I personally am working on rectifying this
(as part of the - largely inactive - FreecivAC project at so would be
interested to hear of any similar efforts...
