artefacts colored?

items of such power are somehow (should be?) distinguishable from normal Equipment

maybe there could be a UI-Option to show artefacts in a Special Color? (similar to unique Monsters in purple)

Wouldn't it be strange for items to change color the moment they are identified?

re: ID

Yeah, i thought that artefacts ID themself anyway if you pick them up, until now i always got the {Special} flag on picking an artefact up. So, if they had another colour (before IDing) that would basically reveal the same just before i pick it up.

I think changing color would be pretty neat actually. I wouldn't see this as a bug.

Maybe we embrace the color code from most mmo/diablo-like games and make them all orange!

Or purple to match unique monsters. And with as many artifacts as appear in Angband they're more like "epic" items than the handful of artifacts you see in many games (though I must confess I haven't played Diablo 3 or 2, maybe the loot is a lot different from D1). I'm mostly thinking of MMOs and such.

Portralis had colored items, but the colors mostly differentiated between normal/worthless items, ego items (pink), and egos with levelling (blue and green). Artifacts were yellow while crafted items were orange I think.
