This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
small UV-map and slave fixes by julsfels. Please redownload.

julsfels fixed the issue with the weird shadow for me. She also made a new version requiring only Apartment Life, not Mansion and Garden. Furthermore, she slaved the textures to the windowless ALroofs.

With the Mansion and Garden Stuff Pack, there came new roof tiles similar to those of Apartment Life. More interesting is, there also came some windows mathing these roof tiles.
I've now created matching windows for the roof tiles which came with Apartment Life.


Known Issues: The round roof window produces a slightly odd shadow (see first picture).

Polygon Counts:
1449 - window I
1517 - window II

BAron_Ivanov: This is highly unlikely as I never created a fence before.

Lieve-liesje: It's sad for me as well as I don't have the stuff pack myself. But currently I haven't any time left for creating anything.

So beautiful work! But you should categorize it under Roofing, please!

I was wondering why the Mansard roofs (the Mansion and Garden roofs) got windows but the Bohemian roofs (the Apartment Life roofs) did not. Thank you for fixing Maxis' oversight.
