Unexpected Daylighting Results (Skylights and Windows)

Honeybee_Annual_Daylight_Simulation (Skylight).gh (538.9 KB)

Here’s my issue. I’m trying to manually create a skylight in addition to some ‘ratio created windows.’ When I go about making those windows I get LESS daylight autonomy when I have the windows on the wall then when I have no windows and only a skylight. Can someone let me know what I’m doing wrong here?

The way you are defining the geometry is creating 2 zones instead of 1.
You should connect the following way:

Then you can check if the results make sense. You can see in the image that they do.
