Auto-roof...The epitome of laziness, ugliness, and stupid game engine-ness all in one No, really. No one likes auto-roof...but I will try and break your habit
I'll own up to it. The first year that I had the sims, I was a player. I had the first
two expansion packs and I was sending my sims everywhere. The faster I could
play, the better. So, in my hurry, auto-roof was my life saver. After time, the
game seemed less and less fun to me and I started focusing my attention on the
building aspect. It was then that I discovered modthesims2.com and was pulled
in by all the awesome content. I decided to upload, only to find out auto-roof
was bad. You know what I did? Used a flat roof...how pitiful is that! NOW, I
have turned the page. I take the time to create my own personal roofs. It may
seem hard and complicated at first, because it honestly is tricky. But I am here
to try and help you fix that with this tutorial / tiptorial
Keep in mind, that I show you two ideas on the same house. It shouldn't
cause any confusion because this roof isn't going to apply to all houses. This
tutorial is set up so that you gain information and can take what you learn
to apply it to your own house how you would like it.
The first picture and the last picture look like two totally different houses
Same house, just one looks much better, I promise you!

Well, it is more than just that in my eyes. Yes, un-checking the button doesn't activate autoroof, but that still cab result in people making mistakes or autoroof quality roofs. This was aimed to help give people ideas and tips for when they do take the plunge and try to take their own and better roof, not drag out the process if saying "Open your roof category, click off".
