Forum:Statue option?

From NetHackWiki

In 3.6.1 (NAO variation), is there an option to make the statues look like they did in previous versions? Whenever I see an enemy symbol, I go into threat mode, and it makes me mad when I see that it's a statue. My terminal doesn't have great colors, and I'd rather have the statues back as "'" than have to screw around with the color setting. Is there a way to do this? I was never too clear on some of the configuration settings. Thanks, Ms. J. Marie Stanton, Professional Valkyrie (talk) 15:24, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

EDIT: So symset is not changeable on NAO? - Marie
Symset (ascii/IBM/DEC) is changeable. Most symbols are also configurable via SYMBOLS=S_whatever:X. Strangely, S_statue doesn't seem to work. Perhaps suggest to the DevTeam that they should add an option to display "classic" statues? You're not the first to want to do this. --Phol ende wodan (talk) 18:26, 17 September 2018 (UTC)
Your idea is tempting. To some extent I do bear a grudge against the new DevTeam, but I could put that aside I guess. Ms. J. Marie Stanton, Professional Valkyrie (talk) 00:56, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
UPDATE: I emailed politely and got a response somewhere in tone between dismissive and downright rude. The developer said that they've had years of development versions to get used to the new statues, and consequently they just don't care. Ms. J.

For what it is worth, I agree with you 100%; I go into "threat mode" myself. Maybe we are supposed to have difficulty discerning between a statue and the real thing? I just really dislike it when the statue is of a monster that is a white letter/symbol! --User (talk) 09:02, 29 September 2018 (UTC)
