Request: 'l'ook feature
Please implement a 'l'ook feature in the near future

As I am some variation of red-green colorblind, I often find distinguishing between different monsters to be an adventure. In ADOM I could always use the 'l'ook command when unsure of what gradation of pink/green/red/brown/purple/what-have-you some foebeast was, but since this hasn't yet been implemented in JADE I often have to attack things to find out what they are.

A 'l'ook feature isn't as important as bug fixes, but it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

p.s. and if possible, please don't make important quest givers red when all the other people there are brown. The tiny girl is *really* hard to find in ADOM.

I'd like to have this feature implemented ASAP as well. It's kinda annoying to get killed by an orcish brute because you think it's an orcish warrior.

Even if Thomas didn't implement the 'm'ore part of 'l'ook right away I think it would still be very useful

I've heard some 10% of men are colour blind to at least some degree - so it's well worth bearing in mind...

Also, it's probably worth mentioning that Thomas has stated he has intentions of (perhaps) implementing a special option for people with difficulties discerning various colors. Features that are required to get the game to a more playable state, as you could likely imagine, probably will have much priority over this, however. Even if it does come around it may yet be some time because there is still a lot of hard work required to get many of the game's core features implemented and polished.

Shouldn't this issue by closed now?
