One of the things many sims find hard is building houses with interesting roofs. However we know that the auto-roof feature doesn't do a much better job, so there is only one thing for it: We gotta get better at it - so lets practice making really neat roofs - or at least roof that does not make our house look like a boring box.
Lets see how interesting we can make a simple house just by playing with the exterior.
Pick one of the floorplans below and turn it into a beautiful house with a great roof. You know you can do better than the auto-roof feature! Use the roof tool, add wall details, use texture, add some plants, a foundation and perhaps a neat little patio. You can do what-ever you want to the house as long as the outer walls stay the same. It can be a residential house or a community lot. You may do what-ever style you want, even historical ones. Have fun with it! If you are in sims 3, I suggest you start by using the auto-roof feature, just to see what you have to do better than

Quote:I thought something roof themed would be fun and we don't have a weather vane in Sims 4.
It is classified as "roof sculpture" (like the decorative chimney and such in build section). It is a partial conversion from Aminovas' weather vane and then I did a new thing for the top (the rooster and arrow). Texture is all mine. It has four colors - Oxidized copper, fresh copper, eroded iron and smooth iron.
I tried to make it not too high poly - 1223 (for LOD 0)/ 801 (for LOD 1). Costs 42. Named "Old Tyme Weather Vane" Yea, thats about it.
