First, thanks for looking at my post, really keen on seeing if this could be implemented so i will keep this succinct and to the point.

Map marker: If i could place a temporary map marker on a location i would like to go or allow my teammates to head to (waypoints would be nice)
Yes, this is planned eventually when we rework the map menu.

Hotkey for discarding items
Actually there is already one ;)
Just open the inventory and press "help" or "shortcuts" and there's a bunch of different shortcuts, including to discard an item.

Containers being labelled
Yes, this is also planned.

Faster travel on roads: Could imagine a lot more interesting pvp encounters being orchestrated.
Roads provide +10% speed bonus (or was it 15%? :) )

There's a bunch of other things we are planning to add.
Please take a look at our roadmap:

What about the part, where the workbench can remotely see what you have available in your bases containers so i don't have to physically collect them?

Thanks for the fast reply btw

While it's relatively simple to implement for a singleplayer game, for a multiplayer game it's much harder. Plus it will require way more data to transfer to the client-side and most of it will be rarely useful, which is a problem if we want to optimize the server to handle hundreds of online players (in some countries where we're renting the hardware to host the official game servers we're paying for (very limited) bandwidth or even for traffic and it's already very tough).
