Campfire Once Placed Cannot Be Picked Up Again

Game mode: [Single-Player PC]
Type of issue: [Bug]
Server type: [PvE]
Region: [North America]

Stared a new game with the Pets part 2 released today. Made a simple campfire. Cooked some meat. But when I went to pick it up by pressing E for “More Options” I couldn’t get any options. It was totally unresponsive. I could open the campfire again and cook more meat, but I cannot pick up the campfire. The “More Options” wheel does not open.

Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:

  1. Craft a campfire.
  2. Place a campfire.
  3. Try pressing “E” for more options.
  4. [unresponsive]

Any mods by any chance that could affect this? Today’s dev kit was only a minor batch of files that were edited, but could be something. If nothing else it would be good for clarification purposes.

Unknown. I do use mods so its possible. But I was making campfires and picking them up just fine yesterday, but today, for some reason, its no longer working. So the patch came in and I also picked up the DLC. So something isn’t connecting right. If campfires are working for everyone else, then its probably a mod issue (and thus, something I need to figure out). But if others are experiencing this problem, it might be a patch issue. In which case, its something for the devs to figure out. Either way, I’m sure it’ll get sorted fairly soon.

Update: Okay, now the problem seems to have resolved itself. I turned off the game to take a supper break. Came back and hour later. Started up the game again. And the campfire can now be picked up. I didn’t change any mod or admin commands or anything else. Just restarted the game and its working fine. Weird fix, but I’ll take it. :slight_smile:

Welp, alrighty then! Sometimes, a good ole fashion “did you turn it on and off again” will do the trick I guess!
