Default Fire Hazard!

Don't mean to make a fuss but a single chicken or big could send spawn village up in smoke with Kazaar's log house...







The house does have a door on it but when i walked through it was wide open....

I don't believe mobs (or players) can actually spread fire if they catch alight. I know recently I was leading some zombies which were on fire around and under some trees and nada, couldn't make it spread.

Interesting timing for your post though, there was an accident the other night with someone's new fireplace resulting in the temporary loss of several nearby properties. A quick server roll back fixed everything though (luckily an Admin was on).

For those new to the game, if building fire near something flammable, remember that you need a 3 brick radius in all directions of non-flammable blocks to avoid the fire jumping and spreading.

All complaints regarding Fire Hazard Reduction need to lodged in triplicate to the relevant authorities. Land Council, local fire department, Police and Local Government. There is a 6 to 8 week process time and each form will require a processing fee.

All cheques should be made payable to Community Assistance Safty and Housing (feel free to use the acronym) and sent to my address for processing.

I bet you're still filing the paperwork after you added central heating to manuzza's house

Um. Players do. I fell into my fire and then walked out burning my house at spawn almost to the ground.

Of mixed opinion about wether or not mobs can spread fire. I remember the Great Burning of NAM that happened in our early days where we witnessed a fairly devastating spring of lava and resultant spread of fire. A lot was blamed on burning mobs wandering and spreading the fire, some avatars too. But when I posted on the official forums about it the resounding response was that it was almost definitely the act of a griefer. I'm still sceptical, but it was claimed that they could log in anonymously, invisibly, and wander where they wanted spawning lava and starting fires.

I'm fairly certain that as Splat says, avatars can spread fire. I remember on that day one of the avatars was definitely setting alight every tree he walked by, even though he didn't appear to be on fire. I just figured at the time that as the game is in alpha there are bound to be plenty of 'undocumented features' and while he didn't have the flaming animation he was still flagged as burning. I'm pretty sure it was you, Vonder... That was one looong burning fig leaf...

Interesting.....

a couple of us were around when the log house and firepit were being built, and were expecting the whole thing to burn down (it didn't).... and we even tried walking into the firepit and then standing next to a wall to see if we would burn it down - and it didn't - so I don't know if it's a random thing then or not...

Exactly, I was there then, as we were concerned someone walking too close could cause a fire to spread after we'd removed the fire wall which had been build just in case. I've also failed to light trees on fire while accidentally setting myself on fire whilst trying to burn zombies.

There's apparently first hand knowledge for both positions, however given the range that a fire can jump (up to 3 blocks) then examples of fire spreading by someone who's not obviously alight may instead be the fire jumping - remember it's 3D, so not just Nth/Sth/East/West but also vertically.

Other than that it could be something that's a bit bugged and can be spread sometimes, but not others. I've not researched it too much on forums etc myself.
