hobo class starting with "patchwork pants" instead of "pants."
The main difference is we focus on content and internal systems

Easy dry meat recipe: make drying rack, get some fresh meat, do  some magic "prepare for drying" stuff (cutting, salting, seasoning), then drop it on rack and wait for few days. Much more realistic than standing next to grill for 10h...

How about a cooking cbm?

Man the integrated toolkit already does so much, I don't feel we need to replace every tool with a CBM.
Just my feelings though.

What if we gave braziers cooking 2?
...using protection and letting a bunch of weak mobs pound you all night long

An upgraded brazier now with a spot to cook with.

Then you need two of them: one on the ground, for fire; one in your hand, holding food.

I imagine making braziers usable for cooking while furniture isn't too impossible, no?

Small animals being hidden by underbrush while atop them. Reduce the animals vision while in the bush so they don't flee immediately.

Sewing pockets into clothes, maybe for additional encumbrance?

Not sure if this classifies as 'simple' anymore, but to take this idea and run with it it would be great to be able to more extensively modify clothing with sufficient tailoring skill. If we could reinforce with kevlar and add pockets and expand coverage on the same piece of clothing, survivor gear could be removed without leaving a hole in the '100% coverage reasonable protection' niche.

Lining with nomex / neoprene for better environmental protection would also be nice.

While I'm here: The ability to name weapons would be cool, too. I want to name my RM614 LMG with underbarrel bomblet thrower "Problem Solver"

We could also remove the sleeveless variants of trenchcoats and dusters, and some other similar stuff.

You can rename items, knives and some tools (OK so I don't remember exactly what), when activated have an inscribe or carve note option, and one of those lets you rename items. Of course it'll only be that particular item that gets renamed.
It's the end, the War has been lost,
Keeping them safe 'till the river's been crossed.
Not a battle, but a holding action!
Holding their ground to the final platoon,
Hurry Up! We're waiting for you!
Men of the 9th and civilians too.

Stick the entrance to a laboratory in a cave sometimes, or hide a military bunker under the pizza parlor or wherever. Secret bases feel more secret, and they'd be fun and surprising to find in game. Maybe give you a reason to go in a cave some time.
