I have a house on strange peak and there are two others ether side so we have a little bit of a village gong on there! Good community roots can only be a good thing.
The only issue though is protecting houses, obviously we are using the actual "protector" dishes but its hard to edit houses unless neighbours are online. So I was thinking for a future update please consider allowing us to let friends (or followers?) to enable a setting to work under allies protectors :)
Hope you think this is a good idea!
