I looked around here and did a couple searches, but didn't find any mod or idea that suggests this. If there is, by all means, point me to it.
What I'd like to see is a mod that increases the distance you can see a dropped item from. As it is, if you go out at daybreak after all the baddies have burned up, you have to wander around looking everywhere to see if there are any drops to pick up, because you have to be fairly close (16 blocks maybe?) before they are even drawn. It would be nice if that was increased so you could just get up on a high point, look around and see every drop in the area. It can't be that much of a strain on the graphics to draw those little icons floating there, can it? I don't know, I'm no programmer.
It wouldn't have to be increased to the normal draw limit of the landscape, just doubled or tripled from what it is now, would be good. If it's not a huge drain to have them drawn out to the view distance, then yeah, that would be cool.
TL:DR Increase the distance that dropped items can be seen.
