I'd like to suggest that, when trading, your customer can see what is loaded on a pack animal, too, not just what the character is holding.

I suggest that a rope, which seems to be of use solely for making rafts/leashes, should be required to dress out a large kill, at least when a table is not available. You'd have to hang a kill to do the job in the wild.

 I know that ropes can be used where a cord can be, but, why would one waste a more costly rope? Beyond rafts and leashes, there seems to be no useful purpose for ropes.

You should definitely not be required to use a rope when butchering a large kill, as that will more or less kill your ability to get started. You could, of course, require specific tools to get a good/better yield out of a kill, though.

Three javelins ( I said 3, it actually takes 5 or 6 javelins) will trade for a rope and javelins are essentially free. It seems a cheap-to-get item. Anyway, I was just spitballing, trying to think of something logical to do with the ropes I've accumulated. Maybe require, initially, ropes to set up pack animals?

First yes please to being able to trade out of a pack animal. Second I feel that a rope or a hanging stand would not make a difference on the amount of meat but might improve quality, and absolutely would make the ergonomics of butchering easier. So may be a time penalty for no rope or a bonus for rope?
