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.
Okay, here are the other 14 roof recolors I have made. Once again, thank you to RGiles for writing the tutorial found here .

I'm still so new to uploading at this place that I wasn't sure how many things i could upload to one post. So I just put them all in one zip file and made one pic showing the different ones. This way you can weed out what you don't want

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

HUGE Thank you ... the roofs are the worst feature of the entire building aspect of the game .... contributions such as this make it a little more bearable ... now if someone could fingure out how to change the degree of pitch......

Thanks guys Yes, the file just goes into downloads. I have mine in a working folder in there, so they can go into subfolders too.

Great job! Maxis never gives enough rooves. Would be nice to have some other colors. Like maybe green or blue. Can they be recolored?

mismugs, these are just recolors of one of the original roofs in the game. You can follow the tutorial linked in the first post and make your own too.
BTW, the tent roof is a green roof.

Thank you so much! I always have to pick the lesser of 4 evils for my roofs until now.

Finally, some variation.

These are great, thanks.

For anyone interested in more roofs, I also have downloaded and used the roofs from Marina Sims -

THANK YOU! the maxis roofs are quite crappy, but these are much better!

Thanx to whoever started this color enabling business for the roofs...I really *hated* the selection that shipped with the game. Now, is it possible for someone to undertake the task of making a plain white roof...maybe with some kind of pattern? Not a snow covered roof...just a white one. I really would *luv* one if it's at all possible.=)

These are wonderful Bluegenie2 Thank you
btw-is Livinitup gone? I've tried your LIU link & I get some weird website now.
If it is-I'm sorely going to miss it.
Anyway-thanks so much for all your stuff for both Sim 1 & 2 :D

[QUOTE=tabbysgranhag ... now if someone could fingure out how to change the degree of pitch...... [/QUOTE]

FYI...tabbysgranhag-I don't know if you've gotten it yet-but there is a cheatcode for Nightlife that allows you to change the pitch of the rooves
using ctrl+shift+c

roofslopeangel [15-75] (the numbers of course being the angle you want to change the slope too )

thought you'd like to know :D
