I'll also be adding in all of the Mercenary units into the game, since it's actually an important feature the Darknuts take full advantage of. I'll probably add in one more minor faction, that being the Zuna. Another batch of wildlife, mostly desert and wasteland creatures.
I'm sorry I missed these points!
1. The Goron houses originally provided only 5 population, I suspect it was bumped up to 10 to help them out because they can build less houses with how their bases work. Either way it needs to be tweaked.
2. This is sort of intentional, especially in the early game, but it should not be particularly extreme. Some factions are a bit better at gathering food early on, like the Gohma and especially Ordona. Other factions are better are generating other resources, like Lanayru and Rupees.
3. I can increase the ring around the grove, that might help.
4. This actually is intentional, if enough people don't like it though I can add food to other drop off points.
