Why are bandit homesteads so nice?

While I'm stuck living in a wasteland they get a nice view and a stream to boot!

    Because they stole their way to getting that homestead, of course.

    As I said before, I wish we could do something about that desert. I don't care if it's covered in grass or an ocean, get rid of that ugly background.

    I wish the bandit homesteads were accessible to players, even if you got less building space.

    Rumor goes...those are abandoned homestead belonging to ex-GM's. Bandits are just squatting.

    No idea why they ever thought that putting homesteads in the middle of a vast totally barren wasteland was a good idea to begin with. Especially given there's no way to go about changing that background to something else more visually appealing. Heck they could even just make it a cash shop item you need to buy to do background changes! There would surely be profits to be hand for Nexon in doing so. Since it seems unlikely they would be motivated to do anything about it otherwise.

    We can't have those smelly brigands having such nice things! They don't deserve such scenic views!

    It'd be nice if we could pick a terrain to be our background instead of just the biome, at some point. Could do mountains/stream, off the shore of a lake, or on a cliff by the sea, etc.

    Pay Pon or otherwise "build" the background. I'd even be willing to use gold or Ducats for something to change it. Being in a dessert might make some sense in Connous, but how does Physis look? (I'm in Uladh and the dessert there is terrible.)

    Wouldn't it be cool if you could divert water to create a river near your homestead? Then because of that water as time goes by it creates lush scenery around your area? We could keep the square sandbox, but around it could be something a little more interactive and fun.

    Something like this? (Pardon my crude rushed photoshop).

    You divert some water and it makes a small stream...

    Then over time, maybe even after weeks for realism...the stream turns into a river and the desert becomes a lush field.

    Easy peasy. All they have to do is do some gradual texture changes to the area around the homestead. They would barely have to build anything new except turn the dead trees into living ones, and a have a simple flowing river that runs from the horizon to past the other horizon.

    Or...just surround the hs in ocean, making it an island!

    Watch this becomes a gacha, ergh!


    Looks nicer huh? I should probably put this into the suggestions forum, probably.

    I can't help but feel that the only way Nexon would be willing to implement such an idea is if it were to cost NX or Pons. Since that's just how they are and they probably wouldn't see any reason for them to be bothered to do it if there's no profit for them. But even if it were to cost real money I think many people would still pay for it. Since it would be well worth it to change that hideous deserted wasteland into something more visually appealing.
