    Suggestion: Allow us to place beacons.

    Reason: They are cool for decorating towns and other things. I am sure we can disable the features of the beacon i have seen it done. As for all of you that say they cause server lag THEY DONT they only cause fps client side lag when you have like 40 in 1 place If your pc cant handle it simply just dont go to that area.
    Any Other Information:n/a

    Link To This Plugin/Is this a custom addition?:No idea didn't look into it yet.

    Yes this would be amazing and would look extremely nice in some players towns as well as it would look nice in @Mission001's museum and mine as well. But this should totally be added as its a really cool block and just adds more to things. +1

    There's a reason why they're disabled and it's because of lag. They do cause a lot of lag.

    They cause Client lag when there is a ton in 1 area NOT server lag the reason they are off is because of the features it gives you the suggestion is to turn the features off i have seen it done i am sure it wouldnt be to hard to do. I am going to look into it myself soon.

    Hells yeah! i'm not an expert, may cause lag tho. but it would be really nice. it would be cool and you could make more amazing towns, and you can use them to show important areas in towns with the light pillars

    Originally I thought people were gonna have FPS lag because of the beacons and I was gonna say that's their problem, but I just learned they cause server lag. I think they'd be enabled if andrew thought the server could handle it but that's clearly not the case. Administration knows more than us when it comes to this stuff. They're not just disabling beacons because they want you to suffer, it's for the better of the server.

    -1 would cause lag, and be overused.

    I have never heard of beacons causing server lag have tested it many times myself they only cause client side lag when there is a lot in 1 chunk.

    Some people say they cause server lag, some say they cause client lag. If I had to bet, I'd bet that they cause server lag only if their features are enabled, and that they cause only client lag when the features are disabled and only when there's a lot. Therefore I'd bet a +1.
    But I'd like to hear a confirmation from someone more into these technicalities before solidifying my +1.

    Cant you imagine a builder just placing a ton of beacons and making the area really annoying to be in. If this gets aproved im gonna say none in my town. I dont see how this couldnt cause lag

    This could be said for almost anything, one very obvious example: tons of furnaces. The simple solution is just to rule it out (as it is for furnaces) and, if some troll abuses it, ban. As simple as that.

    Err, if we add to the rules that it's forbidden to abuse beacons, then we can ban those who abuse them, obviously?

    its literally the same as furnaces and we dont have a problem with that do we... you are not allowed to place a ton of furnaces in 1 place.
