Accepted Answer

  1. Yeah, just turn off autoroof. Its a pain, has no design sense at all, and generally just looks lousy. If you need a roof to extend from the house to an outbuilding for some reason, but without supports down its length, connect the two with walls first. Place the roof as you want it, then remove the walls. The roof will still be there as long as you turn off the autoroof first.

  1. Lol this is really easy. Just get the roof you want to use to cover it then drag it from the bottem left of the courner to the top right corner. If you cant do this over the patio then make sure there are Colomns there to support a roof (add the white plating to make it easyer to place it haw you want it) and your finnished (if the patio is fenced then u need to use collumns).

    Tip:Autoroofs are rubbish always do it yourself sure i takes longer but looks better

  2. make sure the rooms are closed, i.e. There are no gaps in the walls. Otherwise the roofs won't appear.

    You can also build Flat roofs and put roofs on top.

  3. Just Create your custom roof, its that easy!
    Well.... make sure you check no holes/gaps on the room ; the roof don't have 100% correct support so the roof won't appear even u using Auto Flat Roof. Anyway, Create your own Roof, don't be lazy using Auto, we can design a cool roof ourself.
