0004582: Smelters unable to produce pig iron or steel even with materials
Despite there being fuel, iron and flux stone within 10 feet of the smelter Pig Iron was unable to be created. Read some old threads on the forums and say this was an old problem. Used a suggested fix from there (making sure the bars were included in my major Burrow which they wern't) and it sorted itself. The Burrow was totally inactive the entire time, they were dropping the iron off in the stockpile all the coke and charcoal was in but refusing to make pig iron anyway.
make a bar stockpile outside an inactive burrow, generate iron bars, see if they can make pig iron with all ingredients inside sotckpile.
No tags attached.
