If you’re a builder in The Sims 4 then you know that the game offers many ways to add style and personality to each lot, with roofing being one of the most straightforward. Round shapes, diagonals, and adjustable features give a lot of freedom, but what if that isn’t enough? This list of glass roof CC will help you upgrade your builds even further!
Glass roof styles make your builds better than ever before!
The Sims 4 has given players more building capabilities than ever before, and with CC you’re able to completely customize everything in your builds from the foundations up to the rooftops. In 2018 we got glass roofing options added to the game and since then CC creators have made some beautiful roof styles available, so there’s something for every kind of builder. If you’d like to add more roof options to your game or just want more roofing tips in general, check out these creations!
1. Solar Glass Roofs by Zora
This first piece of glass roof CC is a little different, as it focuses on function over form. The roofing works just like the solar panels from Eco Lifestyle so on top of the beautiful natural light shining into your sims’ houses, they get the added benefit of saving money on their electric bills! You can download this design as a standalone object or as an override to the glass roofs already in-game. Get this environment-friendly roofing here.
2. Glass Roofs White by MahoCreations
While the base game roofs have a decent range of styles, the color swatches are all dark and very similar to one another. This dreamy white recolor of each in-game pattern opens up a whole new range of options for using glass roofs in your builds. Get this swatch upgrade here.
3. Solid-Sheet Glass Roof by LaLunaRossa
Plain glass roofing in 6 fun colors. The simplicity in these designs is just begging for them to be combined into unique, funky roofing for an arts center or school space. With varying heights and angles you can basically create your own multicolor rooftop sculpture! Download them here.
4. Colorful Glass Roofs by Annett85
A colorful glass roof is an easy way to add more energy and dimension to a simplistic build.
