I converted to using a full length ridge line for my tarps (I find that this gives me a better, more reliable pitch with less sag and less fiddle factor). I made my tarp with a tie out exactly in the middle of the center seam of the tarp to eliminate "center sag." I can tie the corners of the tarp to this center point. I would think that you could do the same thing by tying the catercorner corners together. This would be "winter tarp style," sort-of
But, I usually use 3 stakes (or other objects) per side, putting the corners high or low depending on the weather.
I hope this helps.
I have to admit, I love the type of tarp that you have. It is so versatile. I think it is basically perfect
