Something I've encountered a few times in the game are a few RP problems caused by the huge gulf of information between someone's shortdesc and someone's full description. It's often difficult to get a quick mental image of someone you've just met, or to quickly scan over someone's appearance to get a sense of what outfit they're wearing today, or what have you; if you're just meeting someone, you're going to want to be able to focus on the RP from the get-go, which can be difficult if you're also trying to balance that with reading and absorbing their full description, but if you ignore the description you might be missing out on the opportunity to properly react to their appearance.
Without giving away anything ICly, I can say that I've had an RP experience that involved another character having an extreme reaction to my character's outfit - but only after having interacted with my character for quite a while before that.
To remedy this, I thought it might be nice to have a command that gives you a kind of 'mid-desc', a medium length description generated by your character's appearance settings and outfit, like so:
You glance over [name of character.]
You see a [shortdesc word pair, I.E. 'average woman', etc.] of [heritage] descent. %S is [height] in height and [weight] in build, and has [hair length], [hairstyle] [hair color] hair and [eye color] eyes.
%S is wearing [list of visible worn clothing items, by name].
This would give you a short-ish, easily digestible version of that character's description that you can use until a lull in RP lets you properly digest that character's full description, or if you just want to see what someone's wearing if you've already read through their description enough times to have it memorized. The command could be something like 'glance' - getting a quick assessment of someone's appearance without fully absorbing the details.
I can see an argument being made that the presence of a 'glance' command would keep people from reading full descriptions - but I'd wager that anyone who would stop reading full descriptions if a shorter one was available probably isn't reading them at all right now.
