Combustible is the name used for items that will burn as a fuel source for either a Campfire, Forge, or Chemistry Station. These Combustibles will allow the player to melt scrap inside a Forge, in addition to cooking food on a Campfire, or making chemical or other obscure items at the Chemistry Station. Some items are, of course, easier to get hold of than others, and this should be considered before burning rarer items. All items have a relatively reasonable burn time based on the item itself. A single piece of Wood will burn for 50 seconds, which is reasonable, as mature trees can drop hundreds of Wood. A piece of Coal, while able to be harvested in almost the same amounts, will burn for 100 seconds.
- As mentioned, some items are easier to come by. While Books burn for twice as long as Wood, Wood is much easier to acquire and should be used preferentially.
- Combustible items can be added whole into the Campfire, Forge, or Chemistry Station without scrapping into wood. For example a Wooden Chair can be placed directly into the slots to burn for fuel.
Below is a table that details all known combustible items that may be used as fuel.
- This list is not exhaustive and is subject to constant changes, especially while in Alpha.
