Vignette question

In the 4.0 Vignette: Why is a beam required on the lower level between Common Area and Covered Entry

and not required on the far west wall of the Common Area lower level.

Does the Window Wall require anything extra?

Thanks (testing tomorrow)

In their world the roof over the covered entry interrupts the wall, and a roof cannot support a wall above it. In the real world, the lower level wall would support the upper level wall.

and not required on the far west wall of the Common Area lower level. The roof does not interrupt that wall.
