0007958: Campfires cannot be made on smooth floors
When trying to create a campfire in adventure mode, if there is nothing that can be picked up (e.g. on a smoothed floor), the campfire cannot be made, and the message "There is nothing to pick up here." will show. This may have to do with the way campfires are made through the same menu which allows you to pick up items, the game will see that there are no items to pick up, and will not show the menu.

Looking into this further, it seems that campfires cannot be made on smooth floors at all, and this has nothing to do with the presence of items. Is this intended?

This looks to have been fixed, I can create a campfire on the smooth floor inside a fortress.

Haven't tried other sites though.

Hm, can't make a campfire on the rock block floor that makes up the path for the underground tunnels. Might be that you can't make a campfire on constructed floors?

It's not that I can't make a campfire underground, just can't on the rock block floor itself.

Edit: As a subset of the same bug, I can't make a campfire on the plump helmet farmlands, only ignite the plump helmets. That bit might not actually be a bug though.
