UI/UX: Rename the search command description

"Search" should probably be "Search traps & secret doors" (in dungeons) and a more general "search" on the wilderness map to indicate the right uses.

I'm not sure overspecifying its use cases in the description would be a good idea.
1. Your proposed description already leaves out secret passages.
2. More stuff might be added in the future that 's'earch could be used for.

The tutorial already explains its function, so I don't think it's absolutely necessary, but "Search for hidden objects" in order to give the idea behind the command rather than the technical/particular details would still be better in my opinion.

I'll vote a tentative "yes" then with regards to the variation along the lines of what I said in my previous post. I quickly checked the command descriptions and it should not stand out too much from the others, I think. If, keeping in mind any other existing or potential future uses for the command, you decide that the description fits, then I support changing it.
