A lot of the tilesets have a size of 30x30. There is one 45x45 and
some 20x20. AFAIK all tilesets use 8 bits.

No. I know nobody who is working on this. Freeciv doesn't run
fullscreen, but in a window.

non-isometric but only one isometric. This one is ugly. If you can
made a nice isometric one?!
What's nice about GUI is that you see what you manipulate.
What's bad about GUI is that you can only manipulate what you see.
