Dropping items near an indoor fireplace
Acknowledged, NormalPublic


This appears to be a repeatable problem for me. Items I drop near an indoor fireplace often glitch into the chimney and are unable to be retrieved.

Steps To Reproduce

When I am inside a house and I have place a fire kit inside a fireplace, I then ignite it. If I drop items near the fireplace, the item generally glitches into the chimney stack or just above the fire. Often I am unable to retrieve the item

Additional Information

IfI leave the building and immediate area, log out and log back in, sometimes the item corrects itself back onto the floor and I can once again pick the item up. I have had this happen with water bottles, duct tape and gas cookers

Yesterday, faced with like. Cooked meat in a pan on the fireplace inside the house. I could not pick a pot with the finished meat. On the pan was a sign - "prohibited act". I took all the meat from the pan, a sign of prohibited action was on the pan. I put out the fire with a water bottle - a sign of prohibited action disappeared and unlock pan.
