I think it would be cool if there were an ice-box in game. It would need to be filled with ice of course. The main difficulty would probably be implementing the ice.

 

These might be prohibitively difficult, but I can think of a few ways to get ice during the winter:

1) Foraging. Ice would appear in your inventory just like a stone or twigs.

2) Leaving water outside, e.g. in a pot.

3) Cutting ice from a body of water. Maybe right-clicking a lake or river with a saw or an axe in your inventory.

 

Ice could be used to fill an ice box. With enough ice, players might be able to store food year-round. Ice might also be used to reduce pain from certain injuries.

I started this a few weeks back. Instead of ice I used the coldpacks shipped with the game. Unfortunately I hit a rather big problem that I couldn't fix: Upon loading a save you would need to remove and add the coldpacks to every cold box again in order to gain the cooling effect again.

 

EDIT: This get's more a must-have-feature once vehicles finally drop in the normal build. Would be damn nice to have some boxes in your car for proper "safehouse-cars".

I don't know how plausible this would be. Correct me if I'm wrong, but ice boxes back in the day used to use dry ice, no? To the best of my knowledge anyway. Btw in Texas we still call ice boxes, ice boxes. lol We don't call the fridges. xD
