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.
Shades of Colors!

The past few months have been pretty busy for me. With my senior year approaching and college looming on the horizon, I have had few chances to actually work on my crap sitting around my computer. This particular set has been around for over two months, taking up space on my desktop; thankfully they are finally done! This set of roofs (yeah, another set, sue me) is made to have multiple shades of the same color all mixed into one roof, like with Spanish tile. Since I have a habit of making sets, what started as "Just one green roof" turned into "Ah! A perfect set of twelve!" in about an hour.

Each roof has been meticulously recolored by separating the maps into seventeen or so layers, recoloring tiles, and flattening the image back out. The patterns will appear differently where roof section meet as well as other intersections and joints. With a well done roof, there will be no noticeable repeating at all!

Hopefully I can get up a few of my finished lots this weekend as well. Until next time, happy creating!

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.

I think you meant "Feedback and general sexiness".

Oh, my! These are gorgeous. I especially love the grey and light brown tiles. I can't see all that much with the darker colors, but the lighter ones are stunning and will be well used. Thank you.

Lovely work as always. I can't think why EA didn't include a colour slider for the roof. Thank goodness for creators like you

<3 Amazing to see these finished, the blue and dark blue are my favourite! But what i love is how you've introduced a really wide range of colours into the game but they are all so usable, there is not one colour in this pack that i wouldn't choose to use on a house. Fantastic set!

In Austin, Tx, many of the multi-million dollar homes have tile roofs that are shades of terracotta, sand and even slate blue - all mixed together! Any chance of your creating a roof like that? My hard drive just crashed and I wasn't backed up (for shame!) so I'm having to go back out into the Sims community to redownload my billions of CC, otherwise I might give creating a go myself.
