Can't Start Fires

Recommended Posts

I'm sorry if I'm reposting this, but I did a couple searches and couldn't find the answer in the forum or patch notes. I am unable to start trees on fire. I have tried several ways, including the ways posted in the Don't Starve Wiki. The game does not allow me to. For example - if I have a torch and click on a tree it simply says something like, "This looks like it would burn." The only time I have ever been able to set a tree on fire was when I killed a firehound? and its death caught a nearby tree. As a result I have not been able to collect any charcoal. Is this a bug, am I doing it wrong, or is it something else?

You have to click on the torch and drag it to a nearby tree to ignite it.

It's like this so you don't accidently catch a forest on fire when you are travelling with a torch at night :)

Place a campfire near trees and throw fuel like a mad. Soon your fire will get out of control and fire up everything around (not only trees but everything flammable includes you if you get too close)

ah, yes fair point

I suppose it makes sense then to modify the steps for those who have yet to develop the necessary degree of appreciation
