Introduction & Compatibility:

This series is a global roof mod to over-ride the default roof setting in order to get in-game roofs to show the full identical coloration as the input rooftop texture. So, dark roof textures will still result in dark in-game roofs with this mod while bright ones will result in bright in-game roofs.

The rules of this roof mod game:
Since this is a global mod, all default roof colours are affected and lightened from (0.4,0.385,0.38)[Maxis default shading] back to (1,1,1)[the same coloration as the roof top texture] so while using this mod and wanting the default ones or previously made customs to show up right, do the ratio math for the colourational changes accordingly. May prepare two sets for those with and without a roof mod. Or, simply remove this roof mod (as suggested by nengi65)

There're currently 3 versions.

1.
Moi_roof-shader-modded-4whiteroof.rar
This mod is based on the TS2 (the base game) roof shader. And, it should work well at least down to the base game TS2 and up to NL.
2.
Moi_shaderRoof_ColourationFull.rar
This mod is based on the OFB roof shader. And, it should work well at least down to the base game TS2 and up to Pets.
3.
Moi_shaderRoof_SS_ColourationFull
This mod is based on Seasons' roof shader. It doesn't work with other lower EPs.
The EP7 FT and EP6 BV versions of the shader are the same as EP5 SS, just use the EP5 SS version for EP6 BV and EP7 FT.
Note: this mod is for full roof coloration.
The EP8 and M&G SP versions are the same as the EP5 SS, just use the EP5 SS version.

There'll be a few more colorational variants on the release. Deep Blue, red, and deep green.


omitted, sorry I've something more interesting to do. :P

Applications:

One application of this mod is to allow "pure" white roof in-game. Then, one can imagine what the rests can be made.
May use it with custom roof recolours for whatever cause(s).

I'm not good at texturing some snowy roof tiles (just imagine I'm not satisfied with the ones I've made thus far! :P) and don't wanna torture other users.
Anyway, I believe more talent people can make some cool snowy roofs or roofs with light colours and/or patterns

Thank you for this! I was worried when all of my custom colored roofs were coming out dark, but now... Wow! This rocks!

Thank you so very much! I can't wait to test this in my game!

Surely, you appeared confused. No, the mod doesn't replace any roof but just show the roof in its full texture. Try some other roofs and custom roof recolours...

Most default roofs are actually very bright originally, and it was the shader that darkens all of them to be no brighter than 40% of the original texture.

Niol, if I download roof recolors from this site (that is if there are any) will they work with this installed? Actually, I'm asking that incorrectly, will this mod affect the custom roofs or roof recolors? Or does it only affect Maxis roofs? Thank you though, I always thought the colors were so dulled.

Simsane,
this mod will affect all roof recolours so that they can all show their original colours while the original Maxis shader will darken and dim all roof recolours including their own.
That's why without this mod, all roof recolours including Maxis's default ones are all darkened.

Thank you Niol! I always hated the shading on the Maxis roofs and I have downloaded other roof recolors in the past and they pretty much looked the same way. This is great!

WALLY ONE,

Which version of the mod is used for which version of the game?
Also, a screenshot will help.
Any other shader mod have you installed and what are they?

I need these infos to check out your problem.

I dont have a picture, and I downloaded all of them lol... I don't read anything. I have the sims two pets and open for bussiness, and the roofs are like bright pink and purple and they flash from pink/magenta to purple.

Thanks for your liking all versions of it, just in case, only one version is used at a time.

According to your post above and your profile, Moi_shaderRoof_ColourationFull.rar should be used.
