New basement Bathroom

I have started cutting up the concrete in my basement in preperation for a new bathroom. the house is already plumbed with a toilet and lav, and I am adding a shower. I would like someone to comment on the image I am attaching so I can be sure I correctly install this shower line. The image I am attaching shows the current plumbing setup with the addition of a shower line. That is the line I am installing. Thanks

My take is that your shower should have a 1.5" vent line as well, after the p-trap of the shower but reasonably close to it.

By looking at your diagram it should technically work but check with a plumber or inspector first to make sure it meets your local codes.

If I were to vent the shower line, what type of fitting is required, "wye" or "Sanitary Tee"?
