Roof time again ( what is it with me and roofs?? )

A quick render of my next attempt at modular roofs.



ALL items UV mapped (except chimney flashing), roofs mapped on same UVmap so no tile size diff. All "saddle" pieces mapped AND same size.

Will try to work on detailed maps and then top down render......

So here is the question...

Q. Chimney flash? Did they use it in medieval times? the Romans had it. If not - then what did they use to seal the chimney against the tiles?

Thanks

ae

Any better?

And again - did they use "flashing" or what did they use in those times (bit picky - but hey.... )

First, very nice roof aegean!
Second, I think in the medieval times, the roof tiles and chimneys where cemented together on rich houses, or as most poor houses had thatched grass roofs on planks, no one cared of the rain came in anyways....

As far as I know tar has been used for a very long time. And before that roof tiles were mortared in to the chimney so the water would flow around it and back on to the shingles. With thatched roofs anything that went higher then the roof was placed on the sides of the building so the thatch can be made as one "solid" piece. With the roof you have there tar was definitely used. Where the roof angles come together the shingles would be cut on a angle to form straight line. Then ether tar or shingles would be folded or placed under to form a trough for the water to flow. And some holes will have some straight lines where the rafters are.
From a part-time roofer you make some great roofs. Thanks for all the hard work.
