Sons Of The Forest: How to Fix the Short Lasting Fires after Update 1

This is a short guide to fix the reinforced fires, which tend to go out very quickly after Update 1.


How to fix it:

Go to your savegame data (google it when you don’t know where to find it), there is a .json called “FireSaveData”, it contains all your fires and the related data.
Make a copy as backup before making changes. One excerpt of the .json can look like this:


This basically says: fire isn’t lit, there is a chance of 1 that it goes out (?), fuel is 456 and the (important) fuel drain rate is 1.0

I changed it to:


So my fire is lit with the given amount of fuel, i didn’t touch the “PutOutChance” but changed the “FuelDrainRate” from 1.0 –> 0.1. Now the fire lasts 10 times longer.

I guess you could set the PutOutChance and/or the FuelDrainRate to 0 and have endless burning fires.

Of course you have to do it for every single fire, so the list in the .json can be kinda long.
