Cooking on stove does not start the fuel upon queueing a recipe

Game mode: Online official
Type of issue: Suggestion
Server type: PvE-Conflict
Region: EU

When I want to cook on a stove, I pick my recipe and hit the “Craft” button. But unlike other crafting stations, I also have to press the “Play” button up top in order to start the burning of my fuel. This is quite annoying, because it is never the case that I want to queue up some food, without also wanting to start the timer. My suggestion is to automatically start the fuel burning upon queueing a food recipe in the stove.

This is just a quality of life-type of suggestion that would make my gameplay slightly better, but I think it would be easily doable by the devs.

Replication steps:

  1. Place ingredients for any food recipe into the stove.
  2. Press “Craft” or “Craft All” on any food recipe.
  3. At this point, you have to also press the “Play” button, which is the step I wish to skip.

I originally posted this as a bug, but I changed it to be a suggestion instead.
