I guess it’s easy for you to complain about that. However, I used to have land in 3-4 different places, and I disliked it very much. Why? Because I kept forgetting which of my things were in which chest in which location.. It was easy to lose track of what I planted where.My problem is one person owning a bunch of buildings in the same area. That's capitalism and it prevents other players from owning land for production of resources/homes. We should all have land labor and capital in a game about crafting and stuff.
So yes, now I placed my land all together, as I got lucky cuz my neighbours slowly disappeared and I was able to take their land. Who are you to decide that people cannot do that?
