0005523: Charcoal not considered fuel for smelters?
So, I want to make some coke from my bituminous coal, but that requires fuel.

I have two units of charcoal sitting on my wood furnace. They are accessible, not forbidden or marked for dumping, and not far from my smelter.

Still, "make coke from bituminous coal" is not able to be done, for whatever reason.
Dwarves are dumb.

Reminder sent to: DarthCloakedDwarf

Is the charcoal TSK'd to be taken to a stockpile?
2012-03-01 10:27   
It is not. It is just sitting there.

I don't even have a stockpile that accepts charcoal.

2012-03-01 10:41   
try removing all of your burrows, then try again.

also make sure the units of charcoal weren't used to construct said wood furnace

Are there burrows involved?
Is this a modded game? Using 3rd party utils?

Please compress your DF/data/save/region folder and upload it to http://dffd.wimbli.com [^] and post a link to it in the bug report.

There are NO burrows involved. This is not a modded game. I am using Dwarf Therapist, mostly for viewing.

Save will follow shortly.

Delete your burrow you hammerhead.

The workshop seeking the materials is in a burrow, the materials are not in the burrow.

None of my dwarves are assigned to the burrow though.

Which is also the case in 0000434 that Dwarfu duplicated this to.

"...even without any kind of civilian burrow restrictions."
