Breaking & Entering

Can one get into a building by breaking the windows? Climbing down the chimney? Setting fire to the door?

I'd hate if this sets fire to the structure too!

This is an example of my leading questions :D

One hopes that if one can set fire to things, one can put out fires. So if a door is being burned in order to gain entry, you just have to keep an eye on things to put the fire out & hope the fire doesn't make it inside before you do :P

You can break down the door. Windows... not sure yet, but it would make sense.

I removed a lot of the fire functionality. You can't set fire to trees any more (not that you'd be able to anyway since we're using Unity trees now), and fire will spread to nearby objects (including living things) but not to buildings.
Language is to the mind more than light is to the eye.

This could be really cool and maybe funny at times...
One of the unusual things I saw happen in Skyrim that surprised me was a goat catching fire from a dragon; saw a goat run into the street, get hit by the dragon's flames then see a flaming goat run out of the street and behind a building. When I later went behind the building here was the dead goat and it had smoke coming off the body.

Gives us some interesting possibilities here too.

Oh boy! I can't wait to break into someone's house and drop all these cabbages on the floor, stupid cabbages.

You can't have an open world game without messing about.
