I don't work or have any association with EA. I give advice to the best of my knowledge and cannot be held responsible for any damage done to your computer/game.
Please only contact me via PM when asked to do so.
@SproutLee I was not able to reproduce those lines in my game, but I suspect it may have to do with the fencing below the roof possibly casting a shadow up onto it. Do you have your build available on the Gallery by any chance so that I could download and take a look at it? If not, would you consider uploading it (just call it "Test Weird Roof Shadow" or the like and tag me to let me know it's available)?
Thanks @SproutLee. I was able to see the issue in my game. The lines are being caused by the intersecting roof. In my testing, I have found that if any of the rounded roof styles have their eaves extended and another roof is placed touching/intersecting them, the lines/shadows appear. Will add to our list.
