#2893 Steam cloud in shallow water?


I do not know is it a bug or some unknown to me feature, but it definitely doesn't look right. On autoexplore on D:3, my char wandered into shallow water and got engulfed in cloud of steam (middle of 5x5 steam field) which appeared out of nowhere with no explanation and killed him in 2 turns.

Game was played on CAO, 0.5.2. This is morgue file: http://crawl.akrasiac.org/rawdata/Qui/morgue-Qui-20100116-233647.txt

    I've had that happen in trunk (where the clouds get autoexcluded) and I *still* don't know if that's supposed to happen or not. I always thought steam was only supposed to appear on lava and when using fire spells over water.

    I'd guess autoexclusion won't help if the cloud appears exactly on the char.

    No, it won't. Sounds like you were really unlucky there. :(

    This is probably the same minivault everyone keeps talking about in http://crawl.develz.org/mantis/view.php?id=161

    Closing this one as a duplicate.
