@t4nk-
It is arguguably easier to read in small chunks, sure. But the new stuff you only have to read once, where previously it was repeated over and over--in the case of spellcasting, roughly a...

One might aim to rebase with V 3.5, not V4. V4 had massive reorg. 3.5 has most of the code cleanup; the reorg is largely in name changes. But yes. Starting from V would probably be easier, since...

Oh yeah. If AI consists only of optimal spell choice, It's pretty much a disaster. I tried playing with smart monsters *once* with V 3.0.x, as a dwarf paladin. Big damage and unlimited healing, and...

Ring of Flare in ToME 2 was similar. Very overpowered, so long as you had time to set up the jump gates in advance.

You can still sell things for ID with no-sell option. You just don't get any gold for them. It's a lot more pleasant.

Yep. The icky gloves are not a big problem for ranger or rogue, unless you are having difficulties casting haste self or Resistance. Nothing else needs much mana on a regular basis.
