My town in Andooweem, Tjentzu, is all under about 3 beacons beacon. 1 for sculpture by the water, 1 for warehouse, 1 for all the rest.
My beacon shows 439+k prestige
I looked at the settlement Tjentzu and it shows a total of 38+k prestige.
According to the screen I have 18+k Prestige.
The other guy 19+k prestige from 1 plot. He made a portal to his town Ineffable Isles from his one plot by assembling a bunch of meta bricks, gleam and the portal conduits. And, he is the owner of my town with 19k+ prestige and 1 single plot.
According to the screen he supposedly has 16 beacons in the town, and I have 16 beacons in town. Its not true. I have just recently combined all my plots in town to go under 3 beacons, so at least in that sense I know that the info is wrong.
And then there is this other screen shot that shows the town as having over 3 million prestige.
Something is not right here.
