make fireplaces heat bases#21

over a year ago on a devblog when helk added fireplaces he said he’d have them heat bases (all foundations it’s connected to like the new TC system) but alas it never happened and nobody lives in artic biome because there’s no way to heat your base

Fireplaces, and electric heaters making use of electricity, should both provide heat to entire base, or at least a much larger radius (within the base).

This would make snow bases op however, the heating would have to have significant more cost than just wood in a fireplace @Submersed @wojak

It wouldn’t make snow bases OP, it would make snow bases livable.

Maybe make it a radious, they already kind of already do this, and it would make snow bases op wojak, and they already are livable

@CatGamez I think for it to be realistic, heat should only expand to connected foundations and all floors above those connected foundations so long as those floors have an additional floor above them

This way, the top floor will not be heated, because there is no floor above it (open air).

Radius is the easy way but doesn’t make much sense. If I’m 15m away from the fireplace for example, but I’m outside in the cold, it shouldn’t provide me any heat.

Or heat the room and connected rooms if they are not closed off.

wood is the hard to get resource in snow, so i wouldn’t mess with the quantity’s to have it running, just use it as you would in a normal house

I think the heat should rise as long as your campfire is on, and then reduce if you leave the door open or something. Sort of like how it is in real life :)

This should be dead easy now. Copy code from electric heaters. Done

People certainly do live in arctic biome, I have been doing it for a while with my friend and we don’t even get electric heating but with enough clothes we’re just fine.

they should add heat for torches as well so you dont die instant if you spawn in your wooden snow shack

looking at this in a competivtive way snow biome bases are already extremely overpowered as they are a great way to hide your base so that you don’t get raided. Nobody really goes to the snow biome for much and the terrain is full of mountains making hiding a 2nd bunker base extremely easy.

Are you nuts?! Not EVERY foundation like TC - then one fireplace would warm a whole massive clan base too!
It’s just gotta be realistic. Small fireplace should heat 1 square foundation and maybe half heat the neighbouring ones.
A large fireplace should heat 4 x foundations + half neighbouring ones

Chill. I’m fairly certain nobody in this section thinks they should heat the entire base.
Only heat up a proximity more effectively within a small enclosed area.
