Default %$%*$( ROOF &(*&*__^$
I think the title explains how i feel about roofing. Niol, I'm sure you have tons of links you can throw at me so feel free to do so. My question is: How the hell do you keep the roof out of the house. For instance, I love the Auto Roof feature and I always use it just because the lack of know-how. I love the lil circular type roof or the castle spire looking one, sorry I forget the name of it, but when i use them say on the 2nd lvl the roof will always show thru my wall. I mean is there a way to get rid of the portion inside the house. Cause I mean who the hell wats a roof poking them in the shower?

To mask unwanted roofs, those you see inside ...just try to place an other small roof above the unwanted one, it is the single issue I found.

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

I didn't know that. Thnx patul!

Because that really is annoying.

When you jump on your way down why do you ask yourself why did you jump?
Sometimes the quote 'think before you leap' comes in handy at that point
If you happen to see me down there you'll know I wasn't following my advice
Then we all know what happens...SPLAT!

Well to describe what I was going for was a square multi story house with octagon/pentagon shaped rooms at the corners. When i would roof them the roof would show inside even after I roofed the big square which is the main roof.

would downloading the ceiling tiles work or not? (Im sorry, i cant remember the creators name!) Jusr go to downloads, and search for Ceiling Tiles. i don't know if it works but it's worth a try and even if it doesnt, theyre great when you get used to them.

Wolfie, is the poking-in roof messing up the pics you want to take or are you concerned that it will interfer with play? If it is from autoroofs or from standard use of the roofing tools (no cheats - no creative levels) then the roofs will not interfere with play.

I will take some pics for you Patul. The roof is a custom roof and I can see it while Im building on the inside like editing the tiles and stuff. I will get some pics up when i get home again and let you guys see.

Thanks for the replies so far.
