Why was weather deemed to be more important than many of the other QOL issues currently experienced in foxhole?

It wasn't necessarily deemed more important right now. Development is scheduled such that there are larger features like refreshing weather, shared Facilities, etc that need to be planned out far in advance. So it's not so much that we feel like right now is the most important time to work on weather, but its more that a weather refresh was in the queue for development for some time and we've finally reached the point now that it can be completed and released.

Now sometimes we do disrupt that queue of planned features to work on something more important, but we have to be careful to not be constantly doing this, otherwise no big feature will ever get completed. To put things into perspective, if we didn't have the capability to execute on longer term plans, Foxhole would still be a game made up of 3 hour matches in a single region with a hundred players rather than a persistent world with thousands.

However, in tandem to that queue of longer term planned out features, we also work on issues that are more relevant to the present. That's why in our Devstream today, we devoted about half of it to QOL features and other smaller improvements.

So it's not one or the other but a balance of both longer term goals and responding to more pressing, near term issues.

Are there now ways to remove mud from people like with firetrucks spraying people who are burning?

No but that is a neat idea.

Will the sub break ice at periscope depth?

I'd answer this but I'd rather it be a surprise when you guys test this in the dev branch :)

Thanks for the reworks of the weather system, it has been some time since weather wasn't that impactfull or had any interesting gameplay loop. It has been at least one year since I've built a campfire to unfreeze a vic as far as I remember

Will we see a new overhaul of an old mechanic (such as bunkers, build in general, or maybe logi town ?) at some point ?

While there will likely be tweaks to those (e.g. we want to review the current Bunker meta at some point in the foreseeable future), I wouldn't expect a major overhaul anytime soon. We know the community has been patiently waiting for changes in other areas of the game like infantry gameplay so there's a good chance we'll see some movement there.
