Competition 244

New competition is up - it is an Angband 3.5.1 Dunadan Priest. The idea is we have this, then follow with a Dunadan Priest 4.2.4 competition to get a feel for the changes in the game in that time.

There's a savefile supplied, but angband.live players can start their own - birth options to change are randarts ON, birth_ai_learn ON, connected stairs OFF.

I miss id-ing consumables by use and have been doing it anyway. Anything that'll be a problem generally? Surprising amount of stuff I miss from 4.x , good work Nick.

I think Curse Weapon and Curse Armor are the big ones.

Do those still get randomly generated in 3.5.1?

It's been so long, I can't remember for sure, but weren't curses "turned off" in the 3.5.x series? I remember Nick doing a bunch of work to bring them back, in a much improved state, for 4.x.x.

Curse Weapon/Armor scrolls are far worse than 'cursed item' mechanic - they irreversibly make a piece of equipment useless.

No, you're right, Curse Weapon and Curse Armor are not randomly generated in 3.5.1.

OK, I can't wait to get back to 4.2.4 ! Both for familiarity and game play! Keep up the good work Nick!

Quiver mechanics are sooo much better now.

I feel like slow monster is almost always effective in 4.2 and never effective (when I need it) in 3.5.1 .

I really really missed equipment comparisons.

Stream lined spell books are great!

Seeing thrown damage would have been nice in 3.5.1

I should have called out "Nick and cohorts" (including BackwardsEric I think) for a lot of the quality of life improvements in the current Vanilla version.

Thanks guys!
