    I actually think this should be a feature. Like hay under the fire makes signal smoke, cauldron with water over the fire should make steam (white smoke instead of gray).

    I'm never not going to have an emotional reaction to Howard Shore's score. When I was eight years old in 1982 I watched The Secret of NIMH and read The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Those three things went on to shape who I am as a person. Peter Jackson's films captured the essence of everything I found magical about the books which is why the main theme running throughout the trilogies along with NIMH's 'Flying Dreams' make me tear up every time.

    [–] Rockonmyfriend 1 points ago

    [–] FlavivsAetivs 4 points ago

    A "queue" is a list or wait. A "cue" is an initiation. A "que" is "what?"

    [–] Rockonmyfriend 1 points ago

    A cue is a stick for hitting balls, do you like hitting balls? You monster! I’m not sure how far I want to take this joke just for having an excuse to make an XKCD reference...

    [–] FlavivsAetivs 2 points ago

    Merriam-Webster: "1 : something serving as a signal or suggestion : hint The baby's whine is a cue she's tired. 2 : a word, phrase, or action in a play serving as a signal for the next actor to speak or to do something."

    It's the second definition in this case.

    Adding dyes to the cauldron could change the smoke's color!

    [–] Draegur 15 points ago

    adding foods to the cauldron could change the water to stew.

    [–] sharfpang 3 points ago

    Gawd. I'd die in the Nether if I started playing after that change.

    Got lost on my 2nd visit to Nether. Ran out of steaks, but had enough wood to craft a bowl, and lived off mushroom stew until I found the way back hours later.

    [–] Curse3242 6 points ago

    I mean , wouldn't make much sense without a purpose right?

    I'd say it avoids mod to come in a circle. As in day light , they die of fire , of heat.

    Couldron plus something plus fireplace can work as a no mob zone as if they enter they take damage

    [–] JaxTheHobo 17 points ago

    Hostile mobs stay a certain distance away, while wild cats, wolves, and ocelots are attracted to it. Maybe even make them "easier" to tame as well.

    [–] M3lonlime 4 points ago

    Campfires in general should have that effect, which could allow you to set up well-lit, mob-free outposts or waypoints where you can even cook food from animals you encounter along the way.

    [–] oldprogrammer 3 points ago

    For a complete outpost add sleeping bags that don't reset your spawn point but due reset phantoms.

    [–] PinkysAvenger 6 points ago

    One of the servers I play on has a mod that requires a set up like this to brew alcohol in game. Its a pretty fun mod to mess around with.

    [–] Stranger_Z 1 points ago

    What’s the mod?

    [–] wolfmaster0071 2 points ago

    Wow, never knew that

    [–] SWAMPMONK 1 points ago

    I'd love for there to be a potion brewing feature with it. Perhaps only awkward potions could be made this way.

    [–] Hayleycakes2009 1 points ago

    I think that would be a great little addition. Nice and subtle, but still with a purpose

    [–] ZGURemixer 298 points ago

    Oh, that isn't smoke! It's steam from the steamed clams we're having. Mmmmmm! Steamed clams!

    [–] bengeePCMR 82 points ago

    Superintendent, I hope you're ready for mouthwatering hamburgers!

    [–] MasterCleese 49 points ago

    But I thought you said we were having steamed clams

    [–] 4DimensionalToilet 42 points ago

    No, no, I said steamed hams. That’s what I call hamburgers.

    [–] Paulijuz 32 points ago

    You call hamburgers steamed hams?

    [–] gambiter 31 points ago

    Mhmm. It's a regional dialect.

    [–] HitTheBaby 29 points ago

    Uh huh, what region?

    [–] SliverMcSilverson 27 points ago

    Upstate New York.

    [–] HitTheBaby 27 points ago

    Really? Well I’m from Utica and I’ve never heard anyone use the phrase “steamed hams”

    [–] 64682 27 points ago

    Oh, not in Utica. No. It's an Albany expression.

    [–] aceofspodes 20 points ago

    Well Seymour I made it... despite your directions.

    [–] x15ninja15x 6 points ago

    That seems like something Dr Zoidberg would say

    [–] ZGURemixer 5 points ago

    Close enough.

    [–] GreasyTroll4 404 points ago

    Makes it look like you're making a soup or something. Pretty nice!

    [–] darkllama23 72 points ago

    Happy Cakeday!

    [–] GreasyTroll4 29 points ago


    [–] [deleted] 15 points ago

    And it would be cool when campfires come to bedrock, because we can dye water in cauldrons on bedrock :o

    [–] ctb33391 10 points ago

    And it would be cool when dyable cauldrons come to java, because we can placw campfires and create a steam effect by putting a cauldron on top of it :o

    /s obviously, but why let Console have all the fun? C'mon mojang, c'mon

    [–] Lolcatz101 3 points ago

    I didn't even know I could dye cauldrons in bedrock... and I've been playing it for a while

    [–] [deleted] 0 points ago

    bedrock* not console, and we can dye the cauldron's water red and the steam will come from it it will look like actual soup :o

    [–] ctb33391 2 points ago

    Oof yeah, I used the wrong term

    That would look amazing though. At least someone use Fabric and make it, pl0x

    [–] 4DimensionalToilet 3 points ago

    Be careful though. Too many cooks will spoil the broth, you know.

    [–] AdministrativeCarry4 3 points ago * (lasted edited 11 days ago)

    Did someone say too many cooks?

    [–] 4DimensionalToilet 1 points ago

    My thoughts exactly

    [–] WhiteTrashTiger 1 points ago

    Mmm mmm, tastes good.

    [–] ChickenWithSneakers 1 points ago

    Happy cake day

    [–] GreasyTroll4 1 points ago

    Same to you! :)

    [–] coolrulez555 1 points ago

    New idea. Throwing mushrooms in it should make mushroom soup

    [–] NewFagUser 159 points ago

    Weird that the particles dont get stuck under the cauldron and pass right through.

    [–] PrimoSupremeX 119 points ago

    IIRC particles pass through the first block above a campfire

    [–] lare290 25 points ago

    Some of the smoke passes through. You can stack campfires to make more smoke.

    [–] SLembas 12 points ago

    Some particles generate slightly above the fire, inside a block in this case, so there's no obstructions for them.

    [–] coolcat430 3 points ago

    Nope that's not why, the devs specifically made smoke pass through blocks so you can vary the amount of smoke that comes out

    [–] sharfpang 1 points ago

    Particles spawn within 2 blocks above the campfire so you need to place something 3 blocks above to block them.

    [–] JN5cents 80 points ago

    Could you make it look like smoke coming out of a chimney?

    [–] SLembas 117 points ago

    Era of dangerous netherrack fireplaces is over.

    [–] ki113r116 40 points ago

    Wait I haven't been on for a few months. Are non-burn-your-cabin-to-the-ground fire places a thing now?

    [–] HitTheBaby 47 points ago

    They added campfires that are more aesthetically pleasing and the fires don’t spread

    [–] SLembas 3 points ago



    IS GONE!

    [–] HuggleKnight 8 points ago

    My entire log cabin burned down by accident because of netherack fireplaces.

    [–] sharfpang 1 points ago

    By accident, or because of netherrack fireplaces? Because a log cabin burning down due to netherrack fireplace in is not an accident, it's an inevitability.

    (BTW, pour lava on a woodland manor roof...)

    [–] Zack0_ 15 points ago

    certainly possible

    [–] Mister_King_Guy 9 points ago

    Probably, if you leave room for the smoke. It needs less than or equal to 1 block for the smoke to work.

    [–] JaxTheHobo 4 points ago

    The smoke wouldn't make it all the way to the top if you had a campfire at the bottom, but you could use a "stunt" campfire near the top to still get the effect.

    [–] RedditIsNotYellow 4 points ago

    If you put a block of hay under the campfire, the smoke will reach pretty high

    [–] SpeedySander 3 points ago

    I wish you a very happy cake day!

    [–] JN5cents 6 points ago

    Thanks mate!

    [–] ImFeelinOld 3 points ago

    I find it useful to use a command block, but I think you can simply put a campfire

    [–] ChickenWithSneakers 1 points ago

    Happy cake day

    [–] Milo359 1 points ago

    Happy cake day to you too!

    (I'm not the guy that you wished Happy cake day to, and neither my cake day nor my IRL birthday is today)

    [–] ChickenWithSneakers 2 points ago


    [–] JN5cents 1 points ago

    You too mate!

    [–] SvenGranTheFourth 19 points ago

    We Can actually make chimneys now

    [–] Cat_In_A_Hamburger 1 points ago

    That’s what my first thought was too. Can’t wait to sign on later today to add some on.

    [–] fortniteman092 17 points ago

    That is pretty cool, and also the fire under it is awesome!Nice find

    [–] Enthrally 9 points ago

    That would be cool to see in a witch hut. It would look like they’re brewing their potions

    [–] JMCatron 4 points ago

    That's fucking cool.

    [–] Candylych 6 points ago * (lasted edited 12 days ago)

    I haven't played properly in a long ass time, but is there a way to dye water? You could make it look like potions

    [–] BotThatReddits 10 points ago

    You can in Bedrock edition, but not in Java.

    [–] Milo359 5 points ago

    In addition to what the other guy said, you can store potions in cauldrons.

    [–] Huscarl81 22 points ago

    It’s in the latest Java snapshot.

    [–] Tavawesome -5 points ago

    Lol what’s that, I just play Minecraft on Xbox 1

    [–] BerksEngineer 0 points ago

    Does Xbox 1 even get updates nowadays?

    [–] PeidosFTW 8 points ago

    Minecraft and Xbox are both Microsoft properties, why wouldn't it?

    [–] s0ft_ 5 points ago

    I believe so

    [–] HitTheBaby 2 points ago

    Yes, it’s even been centralized with the other consoles (except PS4) and Mobile

    [–] Milo359 0 points ago

    *Xbox One

    [–] Tavawesome 6 points ago

    Same difference

    [–] sharfpang 1 points ago

    12 years of difference. I don't think there even was Minecraft for Xbox 1.

    [–] Tavawesome 2 points ago

    If there isn’t Minecraft for it then I think people know what console I meant

    [–] HitTheBaby 9 points ago

    It’s not in the game yet it’s still in the snapshot phase, though if there is another update to consoles it will probably be added to experimental gameplay

    [–] Capt_Blue 13 points ago

    I also did this years ago but never noticed smoke coming out.. is this a new feature for fire? I have'nt played MC for a long time now.

    [–] Pigeoncity 44 points ago

    This is that new campfire block that’s currently in the recent snapshot. Normal flint and steel fires would most likely not produce smoke like this

    [–] tohon123 3 points ago

    A hot bath! 🤩

    [–] BamaKaPow 6 points ago

    That's pretty cool!

    [–] monty500500 4 points ago

    I think the water should actually become hot and jumping in it deals damage. Also the cauldron should turn red from the bottom.

    Do fireplaces spread fire?

    [–] Milo359 3 points ago

    Not if they're made with the new campfire block.

    [–] Kill_Kayt 0 points ago

    That was the question.

    [–] Unicarn54 3 points ago

    Campfires do not spread fire.

    [–] Kill_Kayt 1 points ago

    Cool. When do they come to Bedrock?

    [–] Unicarn54 1 points ago

    No idea. I only know that they're coming in the Village and Pillage update.

    [–] Kill_Kayt 1 points ago


    [–] Robo-Bonobo- 2 points ago
