hey folks, thought just came up...I know you can hit the 'k' key to examine the different tiles but i'm wondering if it might be possible to implement a screen that catches everything within the player's view.

I like that I can look at the different things in the environment (tree's,bushes,creatures,etc.) and imagine what's going on around me but if there was a way to speed that up, it would be appreciated.

say a menu that just grabs all of the stuff on the screen and jots it's name and the icon it's using down onto a list.

Tree = (tree icon)
bushes = (bush icon)
npc 1 = (npc 1 icon)
npc 2 = (npc 2 icon)
