The Iron Fire Pit is a craftable lighting appliance the size of one block that resembles an angular metal bin with burning fire inside.
They can be rotated by holding r (as the default key) and the left mouse button while moving the mouse while pointing at a highlighted Iron Fire Pit.
You can craft this light source that provides open fire after you have unlocked the according crafting recipe by:
- crafting Fire Pits from Coal, Stone Slabs, Stone Rods and Melted Wax
- crafting (or taking) Iron Walls
- creating Obsidian Rods from Obsidian (bars) in a Processor
- creating Iron Slabs from of Iron Bars in a Processor
To craft 4 Iron Fire Pits at a time, you'll need (as of R44 in June 2017):
- 4 Iron Slabs made of Iron Bars in a Processor
- 2 Obsidian Rods made of Obsidian (bars) in a Processor
- 2x Coal extracted from Coal Nodes in Mountains or on the Fossil layer underground by using any kind of Extractor, or found in Wood Treasure Chests on the surface
- 1x Melted Wax made of Beeswax in a Forge or looted from Wood Treasure Chests or Stone Treasure Chests
Like all luminaires in Creativerse, Iron Fire Pits do not need any fuel and will not go out by themselves after being placed in the world.
They can now be picked up without the need to equip any Power Cells. Of course you won't be able to take Iron Fire Pits on claims of other players (or in worlds) where your permission level is set low.
Iron Fire Pits can be switched on and off by activating them (right mouse button or "f" as the default key).
|Iron Fire Pits can be wired up with activation devices like Switches, Number Pads, Sensors or Pressure Plates. Luminaires will then serve as receivers and can either be switched on or off. Their interactivity can be toggled and defined with permission settings.|
Attention! As with all sources of open fire, please take care when putting Iron Fire Pits next to, on or especially directly under flammable blocks or plants.
Within hot environments that make a heat meter show up, like Oceans, Jungles or the Lava layer, but also in much cooler Swamplands, flammable blocks like Shredded Leaves (easiest), many types of crafted wooden blocks like Wood Walls, Yellow and Red Carpets and Thatched Walls (easily), natural tree Leaves (rather easily), but also natural Wood blocks that trees consist of, Shrubs and the like can start to burn when open fire is placed next to them or especially below them. Corrupted Wood and Corrupted Leaves are flammable too, but not easily ignitible.
Also please note that Iron Fire Pits emit heat as well, so placing several Iron Fire Pits or other heat sources next to each other might raise the chances to set flammable blocks on fire. Heating up an area by placing hot rocks like Hardened Lava can make flammable blocks catch fire more easily as well. Liquid Tar is the one substance that will even start to burn when exposed to fire in cold environments or packed in blocks of Ice or Snow.
The flames are then able to spread to other nearby inflammable blocks, even across gaps of 1-2 blocks, and such can burn down a forest or a whole wooden building in the worst case.
To extinguish fire and stop it from spreading, it is possible to claim areas and make sure that the option "fire enabled" is disabled. Currently fire will not spread on player claims as the default setting, but this option can be toggled by the owners of the claims. It is also possible now to disable the spreading of fire for a whole world by the owner of the gameworld in the world options ("edit world").
