I have this idea for a mod, but I don't have the expertise to code it at all. I searched for an existing mod that could possibly already have this idea I have implemented, but I couldn't find it on Steam. So... I figured I'd share my idea, maybe someone peeks interest and makes it. I've noticed that, even though the game is called Don't Starve Together, players will spend most of their time doing their own thing in far away places. They'll usually interact on big tasks, like giants, hound waves, raid bosses, etc. I thought it'd be a cool idea to have a mod that forces the players' camera position to be a shared one, like in other games such as Castle Crashers. The camera would be centered in a intermediate position between players, and it could zoom in and/or out depending on the distance between players like on Super Smash Bros. Wandering too far from each other could have whatever consequence, such as not being able to see yourself, losing sanity, losing health... Just go creative on that if anyone wants to put their work on this idea. Since I don't quite understand the game's code, I don't even know if this would need to be a server mod, client mod, both, or how difficult it'd be to code it. But I think this would make a nice challenge mod, with some interesting outcomes for people using voice chat or streaming the game. Edit: If a mod such as I described already exists, I'll just hide the thread.
Auto loot - A key that will allow you to pick up the nearest object on the ground and place it in your inventory... Diablo 1/2 kinda inched around that by adding a hotkey that shows item names on the side and you simply click the names to go to that item. Either way I believe it is a MUST due to visibility limitations such as tree/structure blockage. Possibly add viewing area around the character when you are behind things. This is another solution or addition to help the original solution and make the game more enjoyable. I found it frustrating having to adjust where I was looking or remove things in the way when I wanted to loot something off the ground. Being able to view your character and the surrounding area would allow for a LOT more environmental effects to be added to the game as well. I know the later is much more complex but at the very least being able to easily grab loot of the ground should be a minimum. Also this is on the STEAM version for me FYI
