This is probably one of the biggest current "issues" for me. I find it very difficult to scan my project tree without icons for some reason...
Also for me. It's hard to differentiate folders and files (there is slight color diff, but its hardly visible). And also add to that folders wich are grouped first.
Where is this "Project Tree"? I was about to suggest a feature to organize project files - by the sound of it it's there? But I can't find it - I must be missing something obious.
File type icons would be very useful, as they convey useful visual information. But I could probably live without little icons of folders to save on the visual clutter because they don't convey any really useful information. Having individual file type icons would already help to distinguish folders from files and the current little arrow icon represents directories well, since "open" or "closed" is the useful visual information for those. So...file type icons would be awesome. But folder icons, I think I'd prefer to not have. My 2 cents.
Here's an update to Soda Light that has folder icons: download via DropBox.
The material theme has icons? In fact I think a lot of themes have icons so this is a simple fix.
This has already been implemented in the base Sublime theme and is actually theme-driven so you could add your own for example.
