No place to start fire

I was running through the woods and some small clearings like crazy trying to find someplace to start a fire, but maybe I was too far out of the main play area as it wasn't being allowed. Finally tripped over a hill edge [not high] and immediately died [sprained ankle and froze during the fall]

Around the buildings, when holding the wood, it would turn from red to green where fire could be placed/started.

When running through the woods, it wouldn't change from red [have plenty of matches, fuel, various wood, paper (loose and rolls), those start packs (forget what they were called), etc.

It just wouldn't allow it to be placed anywhere -- so I just kept running hoping to find a spot

It would be helpful to know roughly where you might have been on the map.

I've posted info on how to enable the Debug keys; one of the HUD modes (cycled with the M key) will bring up coordinates. You can post a screenshot.

Fires cannot be started if the angle of the ground is too steep. We'd have to look at where you were to know if that was the issue.
