Ah okay, pity...
Do you think it a good idea and do you think OneTigris should consider this in their design?
Kiwi, what do you think?

That is where that little “lip” comes in...that 30cm or so is what will keep you dry and comfy should the wind change. But it is so much more: one idea I did mention: a watertrap for rain water to fill your drinking bottle.

I see what your saying about Dean's setup, but I don't see how this could be applied to this current design. If I'm understanding you correctly the changes needed to make for this would change the entire design. Not to mention give a major stress point for failure. Where I come from we can can get some heavy snow and freezing rain at times and having a trough catching that snow and freezing rain above my head not an appealing idea for me. If I'm understanding your idea wrong, I'm sorry. Maybe an Image or sketch would help.
Also.....whats up with the game PUBG .....lol see what I did there ;)

PUBG....no idea what that is.
Just to be clear, I’m not trying to step on any toes, just trying to add to the conversation.

Your shelter is a great idea and OneTigris would do good to have something like this in their product range.

It should be quite easy to let that “lip” hang down vertically - or at any angle really - when you expect ice or Snow...
I do not think the design would change that much: you could either just add another 30cm of tarp or even just add extra grommets or eyelids 30cm lower down on the current tarp. These new grommets will be where your main support be so this would be where you fix the shelter. The extra 30cm you would support with guy-ropes at any angle be it horisontal through to vertical or even make this your main support and keep it at the same angle as your main shelter...
