I don't see how changes in the turn system would make the game any heavier
on memory or CPU. In fact, I don't think any of the details where Call to
Power is better than FreeCiv are responsible for it being so bloated.
  I just wanted to know if the design goal is set to be a Civ2 clone
and/or substitute, or whether new games like Call to Power are looked for
new ideas. I don't know how successful Call to Power has been commercially
compared to the original Civ and Civ2, but it might be that in the future
compability with the rules of Civ2 has little meaning for the majority of
the users.
