Pitch/bark – tinder
Spark maker – flint and steel or bow saw or lens
Use knife to make very small kindling
Kindling and tinder have certain properties.
Wet kindling and fuel burns worse
Deadfall: dry, as long as not decomposing
Charcloth – pre-prepared
Do fire in certain order
Position of fire in terrain – challenging to program zones – based on height – two sheltering walls
Wind – 0 to 3. Depends on how wind is blowing.
Smoke – has to move in the window.

Place bundles on the ground – zones? Optimally placed.
Game wouldn’t tell you you can peel off birch bark.
Ben injured about stuff.
Time real life for crafting.
If crafting in the inventory, game takes what’s in your hands and puts them in your inventory.
Your hands would be dedicated to the crafting as long as you decide to craft.
Sharpness of knife would go down slowly.
Deterioration for objects (such as knife)
You can hit rocks -> would go blunt. But you can use a blunt knife.
