Dungeon Map Overview

NameDungeon Map Overview 3
AuthorHojita Discordia
ForNetHack 3.4.3
DescriptionAdds a dungeon map that records levels and features that the player has seen.
 This patch creates a dungeon map overview that is recorded as the player
explores the dungeon. I was tired of returning to a game a few days later
and having no idea what the dungeon looked like. Trying to name pieces
of armor with shorthand didn't work so well as an intermediate solution
either, especially around nymphs.

It can be assumed that this map is in the mind of the hero and thus
can't be stolen, can be read when blind, or when buried, or when the hero
doesn't have any hands, or eyes, or hands free, or...etc. On the other hand,
this implies that the hero doesn't remember all of the details ("a fountain",
"some fountains", "many fountains") and that the map is subject to amnesia
when applicable.

This overview tracks fountains, altars, stores, temples, sinks, thrones,
trees, and dungeon branches. It attempts to not spoil the player nor
reveal more information than the hero knows. For this reason, it only
tracks dungeon features found in the guidebook and dungeon branches.

This patch breaks save file compatibility. Sorry.

Must be really good: it was present in the leaked version of vanilla.[Quote]

Great. Especially #annotate really makes item management easier a lot.[Quote]

The TOOLSHOP is missing and is printed as "a shop".[Quote]

I'm a blind player, so this idea sounds wonderful![Quote]

Amazing. I used to keep excruciatingly detailed notes during gameplay (as I suspect the author did), but now I can just focus on playing the game!
