I was cold, so I made a fire with a piece of splintered wood and a bush. The fire then spread to the tile I was standing on and burned me, so I stood next to the smaller fire. I inhaled far too much smoke to be healthy. This isn’t working, I’m going to kill myself with fire.
A smaller fire didn’t harm me for standing near it, but it didn’t do much to warm me up.
Either get clothing or stand a few tiles away from it. Usually 2 is ample. I’m not sure how far the heat from a tile goes though. If you have enough lighting there are usually magma rifts if you explore the sewers enough. Those are always warm.
[quote=“youtoo, post:4, topic:1047”]if you light a fire on a bush it spreads to 3x3 and the smoke goes farther. i do this to make sure the fire doesn’t go out.
would be nice to able to use rocks and such to build a proper campfire.
other than a stove, any other way to make a fire inside? i found the metal tank hard to find and the parts to craft it even harder to get.[/quote]
Braziers will also hold fire and work best as a portable method. For indoors fire in version .5 (might be in .4 as well, I don’t remember) you can build a fireplace out of a ton of rocks and some pretty simple tools that will hold fire in place.
