Not a bug or technical issue - rather a balance thing.
I have just got an objective asking me to create plotters. It happens way too late in objective progression. I think it could pop up in objectives list right after placing beacon.
I need to control plots borders right upon placing beacon so I know how my base will sit in surroundings and plan it better. As an experienced players I just created plotters first thing, but new players won't know its important to see how your plots play out.
It can also be confused for new people, as they can see plotters available to craft and nothing is said about them nor is there an objective available that would include that element of the game.
