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.

4 Roof Recolors: Maxis Textures
Here are three roof recolors that use Maxis textures with small edits (and one duplicate roof) that are designed for those who use white roof trim default replacements. I like the white trim for most of my houses but sometimes it just doesn't suit the style or color palette of the house so here are a few recolors I made to round out my roofing options.

Note: The neutral slate roof above is an exact copy of the neutral slate roof from the basegame. If you don't use default replacements don't download this.

Thank you so much for making this. We have needed these recolors for a long time.

Nice to have these options. They look like normal roofs. The Maxis roofs are sometimes too cartoony colored for me.

I too use the white roof edge replacements, but sometimes they just do not work. Thank you for this! Blessings, Katherine

Just echoing what others have already said: It's nice to have choices! I too love the white-trim for many (most) of my houses, but it just doesn't "work" esthetically in some situations. This is great!
