yes i love to explore and find hidden monument. And i like real this "wow" moments if i found a nice structure, its a good ground to explore the world. a bridge from 1 side to other side from a mountain often make it much easier to travel.
i dont know in which topic it was posted but known worlds size are 4k, 8k, 10k and maybe more. and i think it will give more as 2-3 worlds.
world ground size: 4k x 4k => 16mio => 100%
beacon from any player 100x100 => 1k => 0,006%
that is nothing. and on 16 mio blocks it give more as 2-3 good place to build
and now i know anyone will say if he set a beacon in a town and never build on this spot a other player can use this space better, maybe yes, but go it is like in the real life, if you buyed a place to build its you for ever.
A normal player will save all rare blocks in his chest because if he die he want lose all rare blocks and he build al crafting machines an all worbench in his house. And that other player cant destroy his home he setup a beacon on this spot. Now he had no time to play for maybe 3-4 month, after this time he think i had a great idea how i can expand my house and come back to the game. i started the game and see all is lost my complete house.
my response would be, beautiful was the idea, I deinstall it and play something else.
And here a question too this situation. If a player had a cheast in a beacon, and the beacon get lost because the time is over. what happen with the chest ?`all lost or ?
i think, bad luck for the player z, in the real life you can destroy a house only because you will build on the spot.
