Batta

Lighting without a steel & flint

Recommended Posts

Is there any way to light a charcoal pile, forge, oven, kiln, or smelter without a steel & flint?  I'm trying out a server where we start with nothing, but there are also no mobs -- so no way to get charcoal for steel except from the charcoal pile, which I can't find a way to light.  There is no trader to buy one from, either.  

 

I see that other players on the server have managed to light theirs, and would love to know what I'm missing.

That only works for making a campfire.

Try this Batta and add to the suggestion from Rhianna:

 

If you have lost your steel and flint, light a campfire and place a wood scrap inside. When the scrap is hot, remove it from the campfire, and right-click on your forge, oven, or other fire container to light it.

Oh good!  I'll try it right away.  Thanks!

Good luck!

 

You need to have a kindling in your inventory as well with the hot scrap- I have just checked

Interesting.  I didn't need this for anything except the charcoal pile.

I definitely got the 'warning' when trying to check.

 

As long as it worked for you it does not matter.... but I wonder why there is / was a difference.
