Thermal + Lava = Bad Dad
I've finally joined the ranks of those who've burnt down buildings with fire or lava. Unfortunately it wasn't just my own house, rather the house that I'd helped Opti build on his local server.

It used to have walls and a roof - now it's got windows, a door, and no need for air conditioning:

Another couple of shots of the aftermath here. I was so caught by equal parts surprise and horror that I didn't get an shots of the destruction in progress.

LOL, ohh dear!

What were you trying to do?

Opti wanted to try to build a central vertical lava flow surrounded by water at the base. While he was off doing something for his Mum I thought I'd give it a go for him.

I built up some sand blocks to get up higher for placing the central lava block. When I placed the lava block it subsequently flowed out one block away from the centre (unexpected but containable) and then on and over the sand stack I was standing on (removed before the pic was taken), making it flow one block further out again. This meant it flowed outside the containing cobblestone that can be seen on the floor and also close enough to set the wooden ceiling on fire despite the buffer of glass and temporary dirt placed in the centre of the ceiling.

He was surprisingly calm and matter of fact about the whole thing.

Thankfully didn't take too long to rebuild as the forestry supplies nearby didn't catch on fire and the chests weren't destroyed.

Ahh. I had a lava mishap once when I tried to make a heatsource for my sauna.... unfortunately it got a little too hot in there, and burned the sauna down :D

Ooops - glad Opti took it well
