A crown. Craftable with gold, perhaps some diamonds. Basically just a very fancy item you can craft and have your stylish survivor wear. Maybe a crown with helmet for some actual defense - like this one http://www.museumreplicas.com/p-1320-lionheart-helmet.aspx.

Basically stuff that uses gold or diamonds. Heavy, encumbering clothing/armor for stylish bonuses and swag.

We need a way to store quaterstaves and maces/morningstars, its a real pain in the ass not having a realiable way to store those kinds of weapons in a back scabbard.
You can feel the blood in your medication stream.  It's a strange feeling.

 The ability to toggle funnels and the like on vehicles on and off.

 An alternative idea(or a supplemental one) would be the ability to transfer contents of vehicular tanks to other tanks in vehicles, perhaps via a pump installed if it is wished to not be a normal ability.
I am in your threads, leaving piles of transparent comments.

vehicle pump sounds reasonable.... isn't there the option to siphon already though? Doesn't work on same vehicle tanks though does it?

How long do you guys think a quarterstaff is? Because they're like 6 to 9 feet long. Strapping it to your back would be pretty clunky. Most people would just hold it in their hand, and set it down against a tree or whatever if they needed both hands for something.

What about the zweihander? Albeit I don't think this is the version of it the was 7 feet long or something.

Making gas pumps more durable/less prone to red barrel behavior. I get that it's sometimes awesome and maybe it's not really a problem for most people, but I just blew up two gas stations just by trying to pull up next to them; the second one nearly killed my character. Probably a worse problem for new players that don't know vehicles very well yet.

Jackhammers are better than stethoscopes.

doesn't seem particularly accurate for a 100% chance of fiery explosion if the spark and fumes are not substantial. Gasoline doesn't actually burn, its fumes do, so it would be harder than the game likely portrays it... not that I have any experience with this. My understanding is that you can put a match out in gasoline. Just make sure theres no fumes.

Might just be because I'm eating one, but how about a fried egg sandwich as a simple and filling snack/light meal? It would also help use up individual eggs when you don't have enough for a full scramble.
