Mostly a place to note areas of potential improvement.

Add new original descriptions to S&W 22A and Sig Mosquito pistols.

Add guns_foo_rare spawns to mapgen

Adjust 6.54x42mm 9N8 damage to 48 and increase recoil to 2250.

Move reloaded 5x50 penetrator to ammo/5x50.json and nerf recoil.

Buff warehouse terrain spawns.

Add folding forward grip to MP7.

Study the implementation of "handling": field in "GUN":

Research the real-world volume of every item in the game and apply.

Split attack time from volume, or add override.

Buff hardware_bulk spawns using "count-min": and "count-max":

Lint json/item_groups.json

Move ammolinks to magazine folder or put a pointer to their location in ammo belt.

Fix accidental .38 Super ammo damage buff in coregame.

Turn hardcoded swim fin modifier into json flag.

Add NPC-to-NPC-to-player disease transmission model.

Add z-levels. The current z-level system (0.C exp.) is awkward.

Add ballistic arcs to arrows and bullets.

Add a town hall and other civil infrastructure to improve believability.

Check for legal issues affecting the game.

Add long-term game mechanics such as: sex; reproduction; aging; tool wear; industrial production.

Increase terminal to 800x600 minimum.

Write manual for each release.

Turn hardcoded swim fin modifier into json flag.

Better:
Turn hardcoded swimming effects into two values: base bonus and strength scaling
Have this bonus be wrapped in a structure
Nest this structure in both items and mutations, so that you can apply swimming bonuses from both in the same exact way

Leave it for very, very long term (possibly never). NPC AI is very far from being ready for this.

That's incredibly vague.

Agreed. Also I hate doing mass text select with the I phone.

Eccentricities in z-level system:
Vehicle movement between z-levels isn't possible; mountains and valleys are absent due to sandwich-shaped worlds; rivers are still lava for vehicles; The player must use overmany keypresses to move between levels.
