Although I am not used to supporting purely aesthetic suggestions, I really like this one. A fortified room with piles of ingots would add so much swag $_$ ! Doing it with iron ingots would be cool too, to make a stylish foundry.

Would there be ways to stack multiple blocks of piles of gold? Like, one pile on top of another?
This would be nice. I think that basically, each gold ingot would have the size of 1/9 of a block, making basic pyramids with 3 ingots at the base and 3 ingots high, then two pyramids side by side would be able to become a bigger one, 6 ingots wide base and 6 ingots high, and so on. By the way, in order to make things simple about physics, I suggest that a golden pyramid pops into ingot drops if broken or if the block is put on is destroyed. A big pyramid would not be broken entirely, just lose the ingots that are not supporting it is removed. And since now fences have a more "realistic" hitbox, this means not the same as blocks as if there was an invisible block around them, I guess that ingots stacks can have their own hitbox too and be climbable like stairs. As they are not tough gold blocks, I think they would have no blast resistance at all and be breakable without any tool to get the ingots back.

Why? I'm a big supporter of some aesthetics, but I just can't see a point in this. No support.
Aesthetic additions are not supposed to really have a point... unless you can give me the "point" of flower pots and place-able monster heads.
