0001135: magma smelters not working right
I placed some magma smelters, a magma glass furnace, and a magma kiln. The glass furnace seems to be working right, but the smelters and the kiln don't have all the job options. The option to smelt most ores except iron and the option to make steel don't show up at all. Same with the kiln, which has no options at all. I have a normal version of both built, and I can choose all those options with them. There is magma access, and the smelters still let me make coke and smelt iron ore.

I know that you need fuel to make steel and pearlash to make most glasses, but is this normal for the magma versions (which makes a magma kiln worthless) or might it possibly be linked to needing them despite needing no fuel normally with magma versions?
No tags attached.

If you are running .01 as claimed, then this could be pathfinding problems. Try with .03?

^^^ I second that. Get it here: http://www.bay12games.com/forum/index.php?topic=54115.0 [^]

I'll try that. As soon as I figure out how to patch the game without loosing my saves, and how to modify the tileset without waiting for Mayday to add the entire program to the download. Haven't been able to find this info.

You don't have to "patch the game," you install the new version in a separate location and then just copy/paste your /data/save folder. The tileset shouldn't matter for checking whether the jobs show up.

The smelting jobs for pig iron and steel as well as most alloys and all jobs at a kiln, are 'reactions.' The jobs won't show up as available on the workshop unless the materials are available.

For example, the option for pig iron will not show up unless you have iron bars, flux stone, and coke available. Check the wiki if you're not sure about exactly what you need for each reaction.

If that's not the problem, have you been messing with burrows? If so, check if you issue is actually

Yes, that's the problem. Deleting the burrow fixed it. Thanks.

I tried looking for "smelter" with the search engine, but didn't find that thread.
