I was just thinking how "cool" it would be if the smaller lakes and ponds became frozen during the winter. If they did we could chisel ice blocks to put in the fridge that would work similar to snow balls, but would last longer. Also, maybe there could be ice fishing that would get different types of fish or other items. Maybe you could make fun ice sculptures, or the ability to ice skate. Ice skates could be made by leatherworking and blacksmithing. Another idea that might be to hard to do but in a larger lake there could be other dangers during winter like icebergs that could damage your ships. I'm sure there are many other ideas that could be made with frozen lakes as well but those are a few that I thought of off the top of my head.
The main thing that drew me to this game years ago was survival. We have the need to eat, we have the need to drink water. My suggestion would be to work in this direction. We have functional seasons. We have a winter that lasts for a week and I think we should make it a real winter. We don't have a use for fur other than beds and those funny fluffy carpets. Why not turn them into clothing that you could put on you or on top of your armor to provide heat? I suggest a functional cold system. The colder you get the lower your stamina or the slower it regenerates and you have more difficulties creating stuff (make it work like being drunk where you fail more, you know the feeling of frozen hands). Alcohol could also lower cold, and while standing next to a fireplace you are warm too. When cold reaches zero you enter hypothermia and have ten minutes to raise your body temperature or you'll freeze and die. There are more survival aspects I plan to cover but for now let's stick with this. For all those who will start to -1, we could make this work only in the winter and make fur clothing not so difficult to create. It would add immersion in my opinion as now we can run around naked in the snow and be perfectly fine. Please make this work, I really want to be able to say a meaningful "winter is coming" in kchat.
