I agree with all those except squelch_worthless, but I can always do that in my own pref file. According to #1061, hide_squelchable should be a toggle command rather than an option ...

IMO easy_open and easy_alter should also be removed (and set to ON). There should be a specific command to deliberately walk into a trap, e.g. shift-w (which, like shift-t, would prompt for a direction).

most of these in staging now (as of [frfb83d9a])-- missing are:

  • maximise
  • easy_open (which I think should remain an option for now, since I find it really frustrating)
  • flush_failure

flush_maximise is now in staging too

comment:5 Changed 10 years ago by magnate

I'd like to plead for keeping maximise mode as an option. It costs nothing to keep the option and it makes for quite a different gameplay experience - like many of the other birth options.

That would mean this ticket can be closed ...

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from confirmed to closed

OK, I buy that maximise shouldn't be a simple "remove option" thing, new ticket filed as #1297. Closing as fixed.
