Way Too Many Roof Colours: Scallop Tile Edition

470 Thanks Say Thanks
This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Rant:

Ohmygod I never want to look at roofs again. But I will, because I promised to do the standing seam roofs. Just give me like a week to recover, okay? So anyway, because 48 colours is obviously just not acceptable, this time I present 70! Yes. Seventy. I don't know why I do this to myself either. (The thank yous are pretty nice.)

Oh, and at some zoom levels there's kind of a tiling thing going on, but unfortunately that's part of the original scallop texture because there's some weirdness with size changing in different bits of the image, and...yeah. It's not too bad, but I thought I should mention it anyway.

Info:

So! There are five shades in fourteen colours. The shades, from lightest to darkest (and top to bottom), are Pastel, Light, Bright, Medium, and Dark. I know that "mono" is technically not a colour, nor can it really be bright, but work with me here. See the colour chart below for a decent indication of the range.



In conclusion:

I love all you guys so much, finding out how many people had downloaded and thanked and appreciated the previous post absolutely made my day! I hope that you'll find this batch helpful as well. I'll be working on the Aurora Skies metal roofing next, after a break. Now that I have the 70 colours pretty well set out, though, I think it'll be slightly less tedious in future.

Again, I'm happy to do something specific if you ask me nicely

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
