Unsupported Floor

@Kyronix @Bleak

So right now the housing tool recognizes a supported floor at a distance of 19 tiles.  That is obviously big enough for a full floor on an 18x18, but it’s causing unsupported floors in the larger designs.  

My design current has posts under the floor to commit the design, but I would really like to remove them for open flooring.  I am deliberately wanting open flooring to allow interior customization with the cradftable granite.

Could the tool be updated to recognize a supported floor at 31x31 please.

    If the devs would watch Fixer Upper they would know that beams are preferred over columns for open floor plans :P

    Please make the Grizzled Mare a 5 slot mount, it's incredibly rare and deserves it.

    To span that distance would take one hell of a beam.

    Just for fun I looked at Cornell University's span calculator.
    It's UO so wood, not steel, beams.
    About 30 tiles across, each tile is about 1 yard, so about 90 ft.

    According to the span calculator a wooden beam spanning 80 ft. would be about 20x24 inches.
    (There isn't a listing for 90 ft.)

    Good luck getting a beam that size!

    Oh Great.  People want "open concept" in UO now.  I suppose you want to entertain a large group of friends in your kitchen while you cook on an industrial stove.  Then after your party ends you want to relax in your spa like bathroom which is next to your walk in closest that is larger then your kid's bedroom.

    The dev's should just do away with the limits houses have.   Like if you wanted to build a 1 story house in the air you should be able to as long as it's within the plot. 

    I seen a cool house outside Cove that looked like it had that look.

    I have an open space in my design just like that (but higher up) and needed one too. I just use the angled wall instead of the actual little arch pieces. I have a feeling a lot of our designs are going to be similar in a lot of basic needs!

    I would have used a Valorite beam not wood or steel to span the space or maybe just magic.

    Seriously I'm of two minds about this I can see some great designs if you could do floating floors but I can also imagine some god ugly ones.
