Doors and parachutes

I don't know if this is even a possibility (I haven't started coding for A3 yet) so this is just a "maybe if possible" comment.

locking and closing, unlocking and opening doors is VERY wonky.  Is there a way that lock/unlock and close/open can be at the top of the action list. I know you get the door icon after locking and unlocking but it vanishes so quickly that you end up re-locking or unlocking or selecting another weapon (or God forbid; the axe).  if you are behind the door you have to find "the sweet spot", to get any door related context making a bit difficult when being chased and trying to close, lock your door while searching for that sweet spot :)

 

PARACHUTE:  why does my character leak water and food on the float down.  I think bambi state should give a bit lessened effect to the demands of being so thirsty (or hungry) that you land with 88% liquid in your system. Maybe its the OMG I just jumped into Exile-land and gave a quick wee....

 

The attached image shows that unlock and close the door are miles apart.

You do know that you don't need to instantly open your parachute, right?

Try opening it a procedurally lower heights, it's not like you lose anything from hitting the ground to hard. I usually open at ~200 meters, you can go even lower than that if you dare.

86m is the lowest we've got to without being a puddle when you hit the floor! We have competitions lol.

I normally pull my chute at about 100m though. A safe height and gives you a little bit of floating time :)

The thirst and hunger levels deplete at a very unrealistic rate. You can actually go for more than 3 weeks without food (although you'll be very weakened by then) and water is maybe a week tops. 

*Edit* I just replied to a post from March... ugh... damn necroposts!
