I would suggest this time an improvement for Freeciv: as I can see, many
players' point of view is, that there are two possible strategies: to buy
large cities, and many smaller ones (s.c. "smallpox"). In fact, only the
last mentioned strategy is currently effective, which is somewhat spoiling
the game, because almost never the players can reach higher level.

My suggestion is to add two more options:

1. City already surrounded by city walls when built (perhaps not for
cities, which are founded during Anarchy or Despotism) - of course, only
effective, when player has got "Masonry"

  No comments needed here. Such possibility allow cities easier to survive
under "smallpoxer's" attack, because attacker in such case will have low
tech level, and for such military units walls are very effective.

2. Production is 20% cheaper (or arbitrary percent) in cities larger than
   size of 5  (or arbitrary size, set by player)

  It'll make city grow more atractive target rather than founding many
small cities. Additionaly, it'll add some more reality to the game,
because production - in fact - _IS_ cheaper in large industrial centers,
rather than in villages.

  If you aren't sure, is it a good idea, you can introduce such options in
next development version, to test the players' reaction for new
