In short: duh, you're right. It's stated pretty explicitly in there. And it
even tells how to name the AIs, instead of using "set aifill=x".
However, for all my page-sorting, I never read that part of README. Perhaps a
pointer should be made from the HOWTOPLAY document to the README file?
First, follow the instructions in the README file to compile and
freeciv and learn to start a game.
Then, after you've gotten it running, you'll want to play your first
few games. It is recommended...
Am I the only moron, though, who didn't get it? It's not worth changing if so.
Overall, this is a great game, even aside from the pricetag. Don't take my
whining too seriously!
