This article is about an older version of DF.

Steam is created from the mixing of magma and water. This is distinct from mist, a similar looking product of water falling, or smoke, the product of mixing magma and anything else, or magma mist, a rare and deadly cousin.

In older versions (likely those prior to v0.22.120.23b), steam would cause massive injuries and death; in this version, however, it is completely harmless.
