An option in the SETCOMM command is "COLOR COMBAT" When this is
turned on, the verbs in your melee attacks will be color-coded by their
severity. The hardest (most damaging hits) will be in red, misses will be
in yellow, and other attacks will be in cyan or magenta. As ever, it is up
to you to figure out exactly which attack messages do the most damage, but
this should help you see how effective your weapons and stats are.
