I know there is currently not enough manpower to focus on the little things. There are plenty of them that can make a difference in the playerexperiance so I add a list. I'm shure plenty of them are already on the devslist.
Permissions: changeable standardsetting. Its just a pointless timesink in my opnion.
Clothparts: they are all white. verry annoying when items in containers do not automaticaly stack.
environmental sounds like wind, falling rocks, birds and animals.
(It would be cool to see if I come close to a tree the windsound is different then a place withouth them)
The fluff for the future changelist:
Rain: faiding away instead of switch on, switch off
Trees that change colour with the season
Waterstorage: a can to hang on your belt to store water.
I agree with a previous poster
Fishing/foresting/scavenging: different annimation when you find/catch something
different animations/sounds per craft
