Footfall issues

I put one becon and then another side by side one collects footfall and the other doesnt. Why is that? They are 1 plot wide and over 10,000 prestige.

That’s because you only get FF on the first beacon someone steps into of the settlement. You’d have to put it under a different character for them both to get FF.

If it worked on every single plot for the same character in a settlement that would be a huge exploit of the system. Youd have whole settlements of just single plots. And all the prices of items would get majorly inflated because of the excessive coin
