Do you want to join the project or do you just support it in general? I 
might talk to the people on the freeciv-java board and see if they can offer 
any help. Why do you say redoing the server is out of the question? 
Incompatibility? Probably will have to do some new server code for the 
changes planned (ie Turnbased, Strategic RPG, Real Time Strategy support) 
but will probably try to support Freeciv clients and maybe a few other 
opensource game clients as well. What would be the problem about 3D? The 
main thing that would be wanted would be to improve it for allowing 
altitude, and to allow rotation and zoom of the view (so you could zoom into 
your cities in a multi-city game and do stuff in it, and maybe even zooming 
through planets and galaxies)
I just got a new member today and Andrew John Hughes on this board is 
interested, so development will probably start in earnest soon.
