Ye Olde Kingdom of Pudding - Medieval Fireplaces
Campfire and Floor Torch

Greetings, good gentles/ladies. We are The Merrye Makers - a group of eleven creators spanning all disciplines (clothing, lots, objects, etc.) offering for thy downloading pleasure a collection of medieval things most beauteous from Ye Olde Kingdom of Pudding -- otherwise known as "Simdom Pudding".

A major technical advance in heating was used in Ye Olde Kingdom of Pudding: the fireplace, an invention of deceptive simplicity. The fireplace provided heat both directly and by radiation from the stones at the back, from the hearth, and finally, from the opposite wall, which was given extra thickness to absorb the heat and warm the room after the fire had burned low.

Dangerous on an upper level, especially with a timber floor, some castles in Simdom Pudding had a fireplace set into a wall in a second story great hall. They were best avoided by those who were clumsy or unlucky. A funnel or hood collected and controlled the smoke. These fireplaces were arched and set into the wall at a point where it was thickened by an external buttress, with the smoke venting through the buttress. Later, fireplaces were protected by a projecting hood of stone or plaster which controlled the smoke more effectively and allowed for a shallower recess. Flues ascended vertically through the walls to a chimney, cylindrical with an open top, or with side vents and a conical cap. Tending the fires in Ye Olde Kingdom of Pudding not only fulfilled pyromaniacs' wishes but also gave them lifetime happiness.

The Floor Torch and the Campfire both function as fireplaces so be sure to have fire alarms on the lot! Made by Hekate999 for The Merrye Makers. The Merrye Makers heartily thank Hekate for making many fabulous medieval objects!

Known Issues:
The chimneys on the campfire and floor torch have been made invisible. So, if you place them last on a building with a high roof, then the smoke will float where the chimney cap used to be. We recommend that you use these on single storey buildings, or outdoors, or with an open roof on top.
