Sapling inventory

A campfire is a Light-emitting block planned to be added to Minecraft as part of update 1.14.

Uses

  • A source of Light
  • A decorative fireplace, which will not spread to other blocks
  • Cooks up to four Food items (slowly)
  • Can act as a smoke signal (if a hay bale is used) or a marker to a player's base.

Mechanics

Players can light a campfire to create a "cozy" light source. They emit a light level of 9. The fire can also be put out at any time.

A Hay Bale can be placed directly under a campfire block to create smoke signals, which can be seen from very far away, increasing smoke height from 10 blocks to 25 blocks.

Campfires can also be used to cook food, although it takes longer for it to cook than if a Furnace is used.

If a player were to walk on the campfire, they would take half a heart of damage.

History

MCE-Taiga

A campfire appeared in the lead-up to Minecon Earth 2018.

Campfires were revealed as a possible addition in the lead-up to the Minecon Earth[1]. Viewers were encouraged to vote for one of three existing Biomes during the livestream, and the one with the most votes would be updated with various additions.

First glimpse of what campfires look like in-game.

In an animated video, developers Jens Bergensten and Agnes Larsson revealed campfires as a feature of a taiga update, if it were to get the most votes (Sweet Berry Bushes, and Foxes were also mentioned).

Following the Minecon Earth livestream, Mojang announced the winner in a Twitter post:[2]

"The winner of the MINECON Earth biome vote is Taiga!!!
Foxes, berries and campfires coming to an Overworld near you!"

On January 9, 2018 Mojang revealed that campfires were now available as part of Snapshot 19w02a.[3]

Trivia

  • If a player dies from being on a campfire, then it reads that <PLAYERNAME> discovered the floor is lava.
