Minecraft has a lot of blocks, but what if they had more? What would they do? How would they look? Why do we need them?

    I have a idea how it will be crafted! Wood and... Mmm... Something that will make fire? OH! Flint and steel! Good idea! How about the marshmallow crafting? Sugar in furnace? I don't know.

    I find it a good idea, and you could have the ability to cook food on it

    (but not melt minerals like on furnace)

    Looking for a campfire? The Biome vote for MINECON Earth announced this as part of the Taiga video:

    Can't wait to see what happens here!

     

    Maybe it can leave an ash block behind?  Or perhaps ash as a drop item, that can be used in a potion? 

    Can there be different wood variant campfires?

    Will they cause forest fires?  Will they ward off Strays?  Will they attract bears?

     

    Can't wait to see how this is implemented!

    I was thinking about campfires, and the problems we have in the Pacific Northwest with wildfires. If I came across a real-life campfire, I'd be horribly upset at the risk. California has seen so much damage. But I thought it would be nice in a "perfect world" to stumble upon life in Minecraft as if someone else was just around the corner, such as a campfire briefly unattended. But then the smile faded. Nope... nope... nope. This is exactly what we *DO NOT WANT* to people to be lax about. We have homes and businesses destroyed because of some moron flicking a cig out the window on a highway.

    I don't want to be a pain about this, but I'd like Campfires to be in the area of YOU get to make it, but YOU are responsible to not burn down the freakin' forest.

    Please, let's get this right. I really want Campfires in Minecraft. But this summer has been deadly, and I've seen the Redmond Mojang office pictures showing the blood-red sun and smoky, unnatural sky. Please, let's get this right.

    I think they should be a way to cook food faster than a furnace but cant smelt ores and it takes longer to make wood,and turn it into charcoal,and also (if theres a duration) it should drop charcoal when it dies out

    If campfires are purely aesthetic, I'd like to see them act almost like horizontal item frames that only accept fuel. Placing a log in the firepit displays a stack of three small logs, while placing coal displays a pile of small coal briquettes. Flint and steel starts the fire.

    To make them functional, add a new item: roasting spit. This would display a single food item placed on the spit. A more elaborate idea would be to allow cauldrons to be placed over firepits and give them an interface similar to a brewing stand, but only used to make soup and stew. To make it simple, food items are added one at time, and each food item added increases the food and saturation value of the stew by a small amount. Cauldrons hold up to three bowls of stew.

    I have an idea! how about this,when you make a campfire and place it on the ground but no fire, here's how make fire you can use your flint and tap it on the campfire and wallah!!! FIRE!!! but you have to keep the fire alive right? So why not feed more woods to keep it alive, just tap it on the campfire put wood in it and also you can cook your food, just for emergency to keep you alive from starvation. I don't know if it work but hopefully will work

    I want to add here, what Rendog said in the after-show of the Minecon 2018 stream considering campfires:

     

    A new way to sleep!

     

    It would be awesome if campfires enables the player to sleep through the night without setting a new spawn point. Now, to sleep and skip the night when exploring the world, you have to carry a bed with you, put it down, sleep and break it to move on. When you die, you respawns at the world spawn, and not at your house/base because by breaking the bed, the spawn point is reset. With this campfire feature, you can sleep wherever the campfire is AND respawn next to your bed when you die.

    Campfire could be like a beacon. Nothing can spawn within 30 blocks of it in each direction

    This sounds like a great idea I'm all for it

    To make the campfire, maybe have it be some logs in a crafting table (4 in an inverted T like the obsidian in an enchantment table) and you light it with any means of starting a fire. It could have a healing effect if you're near it (1/2 the rate of regeneration I, effect called "Comfort") and it would cook any cookable food thrown on top.
