If the admins created the mansion so that everyone would have access to enchanted apples and rare items, they have failed miserably. If anything, the mansion is more of a place to farm mobs than a place to obtain rare items. The main thing they did wrong was that there is only one mansion in the entire world. This means that a clan of geared players could just guard the important chests of the mansion and you couldn't do anything about it unless you wanted to PvP them for 10 minutes until one of you gave up. And that's assuming that you had really good gear yourself, which not everybody has. People with inadequate gear are completely out of luck because they would be killed instantly if they even attempted to take some of the better loot in the mansion. I rarely visit the mansion anymore because I don't want to waste half of my armor's durability for a chance to maybe get some worthwhile loot. I can't believe I'm saying this, but as unbalanced as the old apples temples were, they were still more fair for all players than the mansion is.

Here's my suggestions if you want to make mansions a viable alternative for temples.

Make mansions generate all over the world, but make them quite rare (and maybe make them all generate in the same type of biome and in the same location within that biome) That way, less geared players could still get access to rare stuff without being immediately killed by geared players.

Decrease the frequency of rare items (like enchanted apples and unobtainable blocks) in the chests. If you were to make mansions more common, then rare items should be rarer.

Make the monsters respawn more often than the chests do.

Make Evokers, Vindicators, and Witches spawn more instead of spiders, skeletons, and zombies. That would make mansions more challenging. Don't make witches spawn too much because they are already difficult and annoying enough.

Make Evokers, Vindicators, and Vexes able to detect you even if you are invisible.

I believe Mansions are only for the event and will not stay here forever, but If they are here to stay longer than a month then this is how I think they should work.

The mansion should spawn in random locations with the following conditions: Not right next to spawn, not in a main spawn, In a large open space, within the range of 1000:1000. They should spawn in random world's but only once It's time limit runs out It would respawn In a different world In a large enough open space to fit. They would not spawn within pressence of a player but could still possibly spawn within their world.
I do not know how plausible my suggestion is though as I have need gotten further than the mansions first hallway before my game crashes. I wish I had at least 1 chance to see It.
What would be nice would be If admin made a private map to show off the mansion, whether It be creative mode or survival mode I wouldn't mind. I just simply want to look at It and see the special mobs as It's simply impossible to do on my weak phone.

I like the idea of randomly generating structures, but with the way that PoC's terrain is, it wouldn't be possible to randomize the locations of woodland mansions.

All of PoC's Terrain are consisted of 20 predefined 800×800 block/50×50 coordinate wide biome maps (specifically the original 20 map options on the Private Map creation menu), which are duplicated and randomly pieced together to create the infinite terrain of PoC Survival Multiplayer's server.

This means that although the positions of biomes are randomized, the actual terrain and structures inside a specific biome map are not, and content within a specific biome map will be in the same places as every other freshly generated biome of the same map type.

So for example; if Solverlabs had the woodland mansion structures "naturally" generate in the North East corner of the swamp biome map template, then every single freshly generated swamp biome on the Survival Multiplayer Server will generate a woodland mansion on the North East corner.

If they made it to that woodland mansions never generate on the swamp biome map template, then on the Survival Multiplayer Server you'll never see a woodland mansion structure generate in swamp biomes.

The reason why I used swamps as my example is because while most other biomes have at least two predefined biome map templates (such as desert, tundra, roofed/dark forest, jungle) and thus can cause confusion to some, the swamp is one of the biomes that only has one predefined biome map template which helps reduce confusion by a bit.

Oops sorry about the grammar errors and bad spacing, comments seem to chunk up the text.

The only part I disagree with is making there several of them, I think It would make sense If there was still just one but since It spawns in random places It would be impossible to track.

ALITTARY, If it would be impossible to track, then that would entirely defeat the purpose of its existence.
