Summary 0005985: Recoloring monsters via rcfile can give extra information about Pan levels.
Description Wall and floor color in Pan levels is picked by taking a random monster from the level and copying its color (dgn_set_colours_from_monsters). This is affected by the colors the player has assigned to monsters in their rcfile before entering the level, and will give much more information with some rcfiles than with others.

For instance, if ice fiends are the only monsters colored ETC_ICE and you enter a Pan level that has ETC_ICE walls, then you know there is an ice fiend somewhere on the level. You can even increase the likelihood of detecting the ice fiend this way by recoloring most/all other monsters to colors that are rejected when looking for a wall color, like light grey.
