This user has the following games installed:

Default Two questions about LotAdjuster & GridAdjuster
1. What's the easies way to adjust the sun direction of a Lot? I want to modify the sun direction because I understood that it influences the direction of a 1:1 shed-roof placement.
2. Which option should I select if I want to modify the elevation of lot edges to align with the rest of the ground? (see attached picture) How would the lot look like if one picks the "Smooth" option.

Hmmm. I've never heard of the sun direction affecting shed roof placement?

One of those two links may help you change the direction of the sun?

As far as the "smooth" option in LotAdjuster - I haven't messed with those settings very much. I would say - experiment!
Put down 2 or 3 copies of the lot your working on, and then choose different settings for each of them with the L-A. Hopefully you'll find the one you need!
Good luck!

@CatherineTCJD I understood those are automatic lighting direction mods? In my case, I want to do a custom modification of the sun direction of a lot.

The one I use lets me change the lot's lighting direction from inside the lot, at any time.
And, it sticks - once you leave the lot, when you return the light direction will still be as you set it.

We discussed it in the other forum here: (https://modthesims.info/showthread....346#post5793346)
I "spoilered" about what I've added to my UserStartUp cheat.
