I for one don't want to live next to a factory, so I would set up my house on the other farthest edge away from the strip-mines (if I decided a desert was my thing this time).
With the large biomes I think this is feasible, but I still wanted to put that out there before we all get all rapey. There's nothing uglier than a land stripped to stone, so I think we should all be on top of this.
Agreed. I think spreading out a bit may help alleviate some of those issues, too, but certainly agreed.
