Does anyone know of a good tutorial, or at least some good screens showing these tiles at work? Especially the blue "roof" below the "snow roof"?

Did you look at the sample maps?

Yeah, I looked at those 1st, but none of them seemed to use those specific tiles. =/

The four roof styles on exterior-C are the same structures, only with different coloring/textures. They are always used in the same way.

The way they're placed in the tileset is not exactly the same way they're used on the map due to space restrictions - the middle row contains the special edges for the roofs to the left and right.

There is a total of 14 tiles for each of the four roofing styles (red, blue, snow, wood)

The sample map "regular town" contains a roof that uses the red-style-tiles on the top left, directly visible when loading it. The other three styles can be arranged in a similiar way, but not all styles get such a building for them in the sample maps.On the same sample map, in the lower left part, there is a smaller house using part of the blue tiles for a similiar roof, and still below that are two houses using the red and blue roof tiles for roofs in a different structure - but the tiles are the same.

Edit:

Forgot to mention that for each of those four roof styles, there is also an autotile roof on A - you need to mix that tile in as well to create all the different options, so it's in reality 15 tiles for each style.

Yeah, I saw that example in regular town, but I didn't see the two tiles from Row 22, Columns 4 and 5 (sort of like an upside down V when placed together), nor did I see their equivalents in the other 3 styles used. I have experimented with stones below it to try and make it work, but nothing looks right.

They are the same as the tiles two and four rows above that - only that due to the different colors, the shade is not as obvious.

The correct placement in the case of red tiles is shown on that sample map as coordinates (006,010) for the equivalent of row 4, and (010,010) for the equivalent of row 5.

Ah. gotcha! I was thinking they were supposed to be butted up against one another like they are in the layout. Now I see how it fits. Thanks a ton!!
