    • The one on the left isnt even braced at all, which would never happen in real life. Put some non-dampening diagonal bracing on it, THEN compare.

    • I lived in Japan when I was younger (military base) and I lived in a tower (a appt unit) and they were actually built with dampeners, the tower would shake and move with the ground and stay stable half the time you dident notice, and the building would just stabilize.
