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.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Hi,

It's me again. You must think I have nothing else to do :D

Now, this time you get, like the title says, a new roof. I called it medieval, but I think it looks good on every dark themed lot.
One thing that's special about it is that it's seamless - most custom roofs aren't, cause the texture is so complicated. I solved the problem, by mixing the maxis slate roof with a custom texture.

Anyway, you don't need to know this! Just download! :D

Important: there are two files for download, but you need only one!

-If your graphics card can display bump maps, take the roof_bump.zip
-If not take the other.
(if you don't know about this, and your graphics card is not that good, take the roof_NObump.zip to be sure. It's not that much difference.)

Now happy simming - and don't forget to push the thanks button

PS: You must have noticed, that I have some time at the moment. If you want some other colour of the objects I recoloured, or of the walls and floors, you tell me in the thread I uploaded it in. But please only dark things, cause I'm not in the mood for anything else

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Ooo, thank you! It REALLY bugs me for custom objects not to be seamless, and there are so few options for roofs. =)

Thank you for taking the time to make this seamless. I have been dissapointed with medieval roofs in the past but this one looks wonderfull.

oh, It's not that difficult! I think I'm getting the hang of this whole Photoshop thingy now.
I'll take the thanks anyway, though

Thank you so much for this, I have been wishing for just such a roof texture. We need more roof options, too.

Hi Mia,

Are you interested in doing any 'old-style' slate tile designs in various colors? If so I would really like this.

Thank you so very much,

Ok, but I'm not sure if I understand. Do you mean 'old-style' roofs or floors/walls? I think I'll do some more roof colours anyway like luckywelshpup requested. But I have no idea, when I'll finish it. (Actually I should be practicing for my exams )

perfect thanks

my personal life can be supported by veiwing this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-n2z-Q6x6eU and others on my youtube page. I believe there's a few building tutorials there aswell. I create rather sporadically, so excuse me if I'm gone from this website for months or years at a time.
