accurize2 Posted August 17, 2014 Share Posted August 17, 2014 We have cloth. We have scrap metal. If you already have a fire going, you should be able to make char cloth which could then be used as an accelerant to drastically improve your chances of starting a fire in the future.I am kind of thinking if you sacrifice a piece of scrap metal AND a cloth (which is a pretty big sacrifice) then you should get a quite a few char cloths from the process.This would possibly get a fresh survivor with little skill in fire starting out of a bad situation in the future. But would also make them think about longer term survival due to the material the would have to sacrifice.This type of decision making would work well with the concept of planning for future hard times and would reward those who demonstrated survival forethought.I know the new fire starting method with more interactivity was being mulled over by Raph, but in addition to having more user interaction, I think the pre-planning for success would add another level of depth.Fire starting should be a bit tougher as far as odds of success. It should feel like an accomplishment. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
