88. So it a test run
Fair enough.
It might be interesting to see how weak you can build it before it does collapse, including the weight of the stone. I think ideally you'd distribute the weight of the stone throughout the building.


Here's some info about fuel and temperature

There is a direct relation between the emissive color of any material, and it's temperature (save for a very few exceptions under certain conditions). This is known as "blackbody radiation". Orange glowing steel is as hot as an orange flame in a campfire.
The easiest way to make a fire hotter is to add more oxygen (ie blast furnace), the increased temperature of the fire and anything heated by the fire will be seen as a brighter color.
