In my opinion, of course. Here's an example of why; this is a lighthouse I made last year.

Spoiler:

It's a respectable height and size, and before 1.2 or its snapshots it scraped the top of the world map. Ever since the news struck that the height would be increased, I've been planning on making a tower, or perhaps just Lighthouse 2.0. This is the kind of dissonance that we're seeing...

Spoiler:

I am so happy right now. Thank you, Jeb.

Eh, not all of us will be so happy when multiplayer servers become laggy in cities where all the new height chunks will be in use.  All in all though, I fully support the extra height.

I doubt it with the new better world format, it'll run just fine unless the server is run on the crappy hardware.

Since Jeb replaced Airblocks with nothing, i think the load on the server should be about the same, if not less, since only a fraction of the area will be in usage, compared to every empty block being analyzed with the old system. However, that only conjecture not facts.

This is done on a per-chunk basis.

Now read the post you quoted again. :)

Yup. Increased world height, upside down stairs and slabs, plus testificates with brains that zombies try to eat. Best. Update. EVAH.

Hey Jon, what about Giant Mobs, like the old giant, and the spider-for-screenshot Jeb made? They could be rare, like spider jockeys. Let's see the Golems fend off those =]

Yeah, it's good the height limit is getting raised. Just as long as it doesn't lag really bad.

And I am the one who don't care about hight, I always build short towers, max 4 floors, because longer buildings look out of place for me.
If I make mistakes in my posts- feel free to point them out in PM! I am still learning!

For people who watch Guude Boulderfist's Mindcrack episodes, then you would know about his elemental towers.  Now imagine those towers but with the new map height increase.  I can't wait to see what Guude does with his last tower.
