This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
BAM! New Roof Texture!

Apartment Life for TS2 had those awesome roof pieces. I originally tried converting them, but had some scaling issues (no surprise there!) So, I did the next best thing. I ripped apart the texture files and made it into an actual roof. From there, I made ten recolors, because sets are freakin' awesome. Then, Morph was all like "Make me slates, I need slates" so I did and threw them into this upload (because one roof set is just lame.)

Metal

- 10 colors
- Perfect for beach homes / community lots
- Completely new texture




Slates

- 10 colors
- Perfect for any kind of house + fantasy lots
- Maxis recolor




Neutrals

- 10 colors
- Perfect for suburban homes
- Maxis recolor



----

All located in, of course, the roof section! That is all for now guys - I hope to see some really cool new lots using these

Happy simming!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
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.

Ooh i love these! I'm not sure how you even come up with so many concepts for roofing, I don't think I need them until you make them, and now I want them so bad!!

I know, I know, I'm a lazy Finn, but I finally got these beauties to my almost no cc game (deleted everything and started gathering nice stuff when pets broke stuffs). And boy, do I regret not doing it earlier!

I am so in love with the neutral roof colors, and there are some real jewels on the other two set too!

I love your work, and you too, a little.... (<-- 4 dots just to make you crazy)

ps. my partner in crime just agree'ed with me, all these are are going to our world in process

I had taken them out in my quest to keep to EA only stuff in my game, but with the roof shuffle EA is doing with the patches, time to put yours back in my game. I knew I couldn't stay without CC. Thanks for the wonderful roof textures.
