This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Taking a break from my current Trashed Project of a community rundown store. (damn those food shrine freezers...)

I decided to play around with the material definitions a bit (thanks rgiles, for posting how to add shine to skins) and ended up making metallic reflective roof pieces. For these recolors to work you must have Brasstex's base meshes. For his domes you can get them at Arabian Fortress
For the castle pieces you can get them at Castle Roof Pieces and More.

The Monstery Roofs and other wonderful pieces not pictured can be had from Mountain Monstery
Please make sure you get the color enabled packages.

Both Arabian and Castle sets come with recolors that are dull (well, not shiny). Here I offer the first of a series of metallic recolors for these meshes in a golden tone. There is also my attempt at a mosaic covered big dome. I'm not overly happy with it, and am thinking about attempting to do one that looks like stained glass...Perhaps by placing a series of lights inside it with a cheat it could look really cool....

Please give feedback. I am pondering if the shine on these is correct (And Um, no...the shine on the first set was not what I was going for, but I'll leave them up for those who like them anyhow). I will add additional colors shortly.

Adding some of those additional colors. I bring you a corrected Gold, Copper, and Reflective White. More to follow...I am taking suggestions if anyone has them.

I have another color: my attempt at a gunmetal blue.

I don't know if anyone has done this yet, but could you make a copper with patina on it? I love the bright, shiny copper, but I love the green patina even more!

I really love your recolors, they're lovely! You mentioned above that would take suggestions for further recolors. May I request two recolors, a primary blue shade and a primary red shade? I'd really love to see that :D

I liked the shape of the original roofs but I really don't like the blotchy color, but if you made it a clean black I'd love to have it in my game. I know wow they're 2 years old now but PM me if you get the chance.

Hi i'm not sure if you are still taking suggestions for recolours, but i wanted to know if you could make some recolours of the square roof in the castles and more set to match the maxis roofs and/or all the custom roofs by cathy at aussietopenders, especially her coruggated iron roofs, they would look awesome.

Thanks and keep up the excellent work
