make real combustion

    we know that to occur fire needs to have temperature,fuel and oxigen
    but on powder toy just 1x1 px fire explodes all fuels
    program the reactions
    example
    if hygn temp = 200C
     temperature = 1                                 
    if oxygen near to fuel                                  hygn -> 10 <- oxyg
     oxygen=1
    if (temperature=1+oxygen=1)
    replace fuel with fire(REACT)

    add a option to activate or disable this because this needs more computation power

    This would be impractical because then oxygen would be needed for all combustion reactions, and you would need a constant supply of it to actually sustain a fire. In real life, this is not needed because of the abundance of oxygen in our atmosphere. If you really wanted this feature, it could be included in a mod, but I don't really see the use of such a feature. Air in the simulation acts like our atmosphere and provides a constant source of oxidizer. 

     

    For oxygen burning by itself, this is also unrealistic, but I don't know if it's worth "fixing".
