Steam Release: There is no alignment display with the new UI

I'm making this a priority 1, since this greatly affects one's ability to play the game successfully. The new default display has *NO* way of displaying the Characters alignment. (C-, C, C+, N-, etc) At all. It's not on the screen, and it's also not on the Character Information screen. ('@')

And, believe it or not, there's no "show alignment" command in the game. Literally the only way to know your alignment is by switching back to the classic UI, which is not a good fix.

This needs to be fixed. Alignment should be shown alongside other information and stats on the Character Information screen.

Also, ":g" (display name of your diety) should also display alignment.

A good way to display this graphically would be along the top bar (where DV and PV are displayed now, but all the way to the right), have an image of a scale with white stones on the right, black on the left. Then have the balance of the scale roughly represent the PC's alignment. I.e, the left side is down and the right up (with more black than white stones?) = chaotic, the right side is down and the left up (more white than black) =lawful, balanced = neutral, slightly to the left or right = N- or N+, etc.

And then if you hover the mouse over the scale, it says your alignment. (C-, N+, L+, whatever)

Press "Ctrl+n", then "m". This way you can cycle through three different UI settings.

Also the alignment is now visible in the UI, marking this issue as fixed.
