Add map-like rendering for pocket computers #497

This has been a suggested feature for as long as pocket computers have been a thing, so I thought it'd be worth seeing what other people think.

All in all, it works pretty well though there are a couple of issues:

  • Text is near illegible when in the off-hand. I don't think this is too big an issue as I see this being used for more graphical readouts.
  • Pocket upgrades have the ability to interact with right clicks. This may be less intuitive when rendering items like this.
  • The aspect ratio of the item's screen are different to the actual terminal's ratio. This means there is a wide margin to the left/right of the terminal. Rendering the background colour to the edge is even uglier, so I think we'd have to leave as is.

Despite that, I feel it works pretty well. Tragically you can't interact with it whilst in item form, but it's still pretty neat.

Really great!! So much more stuff will be possible if this is merged... Kudos! Just one question - how does one get it into map-like form (keybind)?

Just one question - how does one get it into map-like form (keybind)?

It's like that by default. It would be possible to add a config option/keybind/per-computer setting but I'm not sure how user-friendly that is.
