Are there still hidden passages like in the previous Avernums? I am unaware if they made the transition to the new engine.

No there aren't any.

And the ones that are there all have a lever to pull to open it.

No hidden passages? Then I spent all that time walking into walls at random was for nothing? Oh-well.

Walking into walls does nothing. There is one place in the Abyss where you find a hidden door by luck. Nothing special inside.

The secret door system from AV 1-3 had a one major flaw - looking at the automap you could usually guess with ease which wall to molest for hidden content.

That was the thing that made in manageable rather than sanity-wrecking. If you couldn't find a secret room by the difference between the inside and outside volume of a building, you'd never find them.

I have no idea what you're talking about, and I think you just savaged unoffending grammar.

I think that it would be possible to make secret passages location somewhat discernable to an observant player; there could be some clues that would point you to casting faright or something.
On the other hand, the hidden rooms' content would have to be nerfed so that the less observant(or dedicated) ones weren't too handicapped.

Anyway, my posts in this topic are just a rant that the automap took the secrecy away from secret passages and room.

There could also be invisible chests and boxes that you could find only if you get close enough to it.

And I'm find with secret passages as they are.
