i once torched a pretty good base, with three other survivors (one helped torch it, yey:wilson_evil:) just to get one of them (the one who was entirely uninvited, and was several times politely:wilson_flower: asked be on their way) to just stop ******* standing there :wilson_enraged:

This kinda counts.

 

You, the WX, go get us some ashes!

... You know campfires spread if overfueled right?

Yes, why wouldn't I?

Main one I can think of is like:

"Okay, I made sure to turn off the fling-o-matic for the night so it won't put out our endofire AAAA THE DRYING RACKS!!"

Lots of that.  : P

The server was being really laggy for me, so I decided to leave. was placing all my stuff down, but I failed to noticed that I placed one of my things a little to close to a dwarf star(I think that's what they're called) but due to the lag, I wasn't able to put it out or pick it up. basically, the whole base was on fire, and I left. veryone was out except for one guy who wasn't helping, so I didn't really get to see their reactions

I actually wasn't the one that did it, but another person on my server had gotten a fire staff for the first time and tried it on a bird. But it was a little too close to our base so then everything was in flames before we knew it :p

Clearing a buffer around a forest section, setting fire to it for charcoal, then birds lay seeds and the fire jumps over the clear line.

Same scenario but artificial forest and tumbleweeds.

Smacking a Koalaphant with a torch in order to provide light to fight it at night.

Forgetting that Fire Hounds are half F I R E.

I played with my boyfriend. He recently bought the game and is just learning how to survive. I usually play as Willow, this time it was like that. I gave him a lighter so he wouldn't have to make a torch. We set up a base: we already had a tent, boxes, machines, pots, bushes with blueberries. The base was close to the forest. Day 12 of the server. That day I went on a "trip" in search of materials and my boyfriend stayed near the base. Night came. And suddenly I hear "F**k!" (he was holding a lighter in hand) "I set the box on fire... (...) Oh no... everything is burning... (...) It burned." And when I came back I saw everything burned and I started laugh because it looks so funny :D

Entered into a public server Springtime.

Gathered butterfly wings, met up with ppl at base, and everything went well until a storm occurred.

As it were, nobody had the sense to craft lightning rods. I watched, breaking down into mirth, as i watched lightning strike again and again and set an absurd amount of Berry Bushes into flame, with everyone just standing in shock.

The next day, people try to rebuild what's left of the farms. And that is when another storm comes, followed by more lightning, and more fires.

Not in this game (shipwrecked) but still relevant.   Lit some poison sacs to get ash, wind blew them right into main chest area.   Took 5 days to restore..

My friend and I were playing on a server together, just the two of us, I was playing Wilson and I think she was playing Wigfrid. She angered a tree guard and we both decided that it would be fun to light it on fire and have it run around. Unfortunately she ran it back to our camp while it was STILL ON FIRE and everything we had pretty much started smoking. I honestly was dumbstruck and probably could have put out more stuff if I wasn't too busy just watching her running around with a flaming tree guard after her. I think I saved the science machine in the end (it's what Wilson would have wanted). This was right before winter so we were pretty screwed after that. Great joke material though!

Well, once my friend and I were staying in our base and we had food cooking in the crockpot. While waiting I made a fire staff and held it in my hand. AND when the food was ready I CLICKED on the crockpot to harvest it. The next second my fire staff was SETTING FIRE TO the crockpot and everything was burning.

That was the most foolish thing I had ever done. :)

Summer at oasis. Due to circumstances we had to fight hounds in base. Everybody have seen a message "just don't kill red hounds, pull them out!". Well, that's when it's helpful to disable seasonal/weather effects, because heat/sandstorm/summer effects make it hard to see red...

This was during one of my first games [i'm still a noob so this was only a few days ago]

I was playing on a public server, messing around and uh...i died when some walruses attacked our base

soooo i misremembered "attacking hostile mobs makes them panic" and haunted one of the hounds

The hound turned into a fire hound.

and if i remember correctly, the hound was killed by Abigail.

and the whole base went up in flames and i felt horrible :wilson_cry:

it was rolled back right after and everything was okay though.

:wilson_cry:Ah yes recalling a tale from last year. Me and my friend (me as webber, him as Wolfgang) spent the better half of a day preparing for the ancient fuelweaver boss fight. The fight was hard with a lot of incoherent screaming on our part, but we had eventually won and we're both battered and bruised near the end of the fight. After gathering the loot and making it past the giant tentacle, an all too familiar rumbling sounded through the earth, an earthquake, we were dodging the falling debris expertly and once the earthquake had subsided I considered the quest a success.... Then I got killed by a falling gold nugget. (My friend will never let me live that down ;-;)

Me and a random guy (that was on a public server) had a flingomatic at the middle of the base, to stop wildfires. I successfully broke my thermal stone and we didn't have enough flint in our chests, so the other guy went to a flint-collecting journey, but he stayed out-base more than a day. I was playing Maxwell, and I knew overheating can be extremely dangerous to him without thermal stone (luckily, I had an umbrella on 5%), so the endotermic fire pit was always lit, and I turned on the flingomatic if a wildfire started. But once I didn't see the Sneak Smoldering Chest, so it started to burn. The emergency mode activated, but the fire spreaded to some trees (there was an other flingomatic which was always active, but we were dumb and we left a rift between them). The structures were too near to each other, so the fire spreaded too fast, and the flingomatic ran out of fuel. I died to overheating because my umbrella broke so nobody could refuel the flingo, so the base burnt down.

i often base close or in the dfly desert. This one time i was a little too close. Tumbleweeds catching fire from magma and traveling to my base. I figured out quite late what was going on, after first finding my bee area burned down and then seeing a tumbleweed work is magic in for the whole base.

I was a noob Wendy at the time with no real weapon. Used a torch to hit Deerclops while still in my meager base. Set entire base on fire.... R.I.P.

Lesson learned.
