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.
Nice asphalt roofs with white wood structure on the edge, trim & under.

I've included 2 versions of this roof because the roof, one with vertical lines and one without.
The roof with vertical lines doesn't look good on the special OFB roofs!

If had known how hard the roof textures are to work with, I probably hadn't gone into this - Damn those Maxoids for not giving us better UV maps to work with :D

I hope you enjoy my very first roofs(and maybe last), they're not perfect but I think the result is acceptable

Even though it's listed as base-game requirement only, you'll need at least one EP, it doesn't matter which EP you've got!

You may:
Create recolors of it.
Use it in a house & upload your house to any site as long this object is a part of your lot!

Additional Credits:
Numenor for his wonderful tutorial on how to create custom roofs.

Thanks! I've been looking for more variety in house-hats. Nice job.

...the edge, trim & under...

Incidentally, they are called the facia and soffit, respectively. Not criticizing or anything, but I thought it was worth noting.
