I liked the cursed items. My favorite to wear are Steelskin. 20 extra AC is nice early on when electricity vulnerablity doesn't matter, and later also very welcome when you have electricity immunity. I also like that there is always the chance that you may find something to remove the curse with if it's an item you really want that has a curse. Sometimes wearing a helm of seeing is worth the poison curse. I agree, 4.1 is quite nice. And I also love the level layouts. I have an idea for a level layout from Doom 1 that I'd like to try to realize at some point. It's been itching at me for a few months now. I'm just not sure how I'd go about drawing it. Maybe I'd just edit the original doom map that and save a screenshot.

Here is a doom map made by Emil Brundage that I think has some interesting ideas that could be incorporated into Angband (some already have been in a "convergent evolution" sort of way:

Here is e3m5 Unholy Cathedral map from which I'd like to develop a level idea for angband:

Basically the idea is a level that is a giant circular outer corridor (or corridors) or rooms and corridors that make up a giant circle and then there are passages and rooms/caverns inside the circular area. I'm not suggesting make a carbon copy of E3M5, but use it loosely as inspiration for a circular layout.
