How Do I Make This Roooooof?
Here's a picture:

See how the roof goes up really steep by the windows and then normal at the top like a barn? How can you do that in the game? Is there a mesh I should look for?

I want it to look just like that but I don't know how to make that type of roof.

Well, since you only have UNI, you're unable to do this, but a new cheat was included with Pets that helps you do that. Look for the roofslopeangle resource, someone was really helpful and posted what the angles were! =D.

For the vertical part you must use a wall painting since the max angle is 75 for a roof

You know a site allowing re-upload of free build/buy stuff in lots ? Help us to update the list !

Start with putting a roof on the rectangle house, level where the top of the windows are.

Then, using the same roof pattern, add another piece of roof, starting one click past the top of the window. Work with it until it blends exactly into the larger rectangle roof. With this roof, you will not be putting the roof over the entire house...just from one end of where the windows are to the other end where the last window stops, and spanning it across the width to the other side of the house.

roofslopeangle was introduced since EP2 NL... it mustn't take EP4 PE(s)ts to get it... All EPs after EP2 NL will all have that same cheat.

As for the individual roof slope angle cheat was introduced first introduced in EP4 Pets but broken by default. That was fixed with a later Pets patch. Yet, EP4 Pets is not the only EP necessary to get this cheat, for every newer EP will adopt all the old cheats unless such cheat is made broken in a newer EP. However, that's not the case yet, and so EP5 Seasons also has this cheat.

Sorry, I feel like to clarify this coz I've read too many misleading suggestions to tell people to buy EP4 Pets to get this cheat while that's not the only choice and this cheat was broken in EP4 by default. People who don't really want Pets can choose an EP other thanLinkage for roof and attic things:

If you want, I have some roof wall paints here:

Maybe you'll find useful to see one of the Larsson's creations, he did a barn roof, you can only make the effect by doing one tile roof on edges of the level then add the rectangle roof on top of last level...
I think the screenshots show better than I explain.
But if you have Pets it'll be better to do the individual roof slope angle.

I thought there was a mansard roof type actually in the game?
