Sleeping bags and back-carry tweak suggestions
I like the two different sleeping bag options, with the compact one being much rarer. However, it would be nice (and realistic) if we could use crafting to combine medium threads (x2?) with the large sleeping bag to make "sleeping bag with straps", allowing it to be carried in the 'backpack' slot in place of a pack.
Actually, realism-wise, there are two things that kinda bug me about that backpack slot:
1) It feels "wrong" that you can equip plastic bags in the backpack slot. I just can't believably see any way to wear a plastic bag on your back without attaching some threads at least! I hate to suggest making things harder for the early-game, but I think plastic bags should be removed from this slot. Perhaps sometime in the future, instead let us craft a makeshift backpack out of a tarp or rags and some thread? I recall there was some cool fan-contributed art on here ages ago that included a "hobo pole" (cloth pouch tied to a stick)!
2) Would it be possible to someday allow sleeping bags and/or tarps to be attached to the outside of a backpack as is often done in real life? Just a thought for the future!
Finally, I'd love to see a third choice of sleeping gear for those of us who've "gone native": a crude but warm blanket made from animal pelts (squirrels, dogmen, etc) similar to the hide tunic.
