Roof Style Rule

Am I just blind and missing it or is there no style rules for roofs? I've got a ton of different facades in my model but they all use the same roof style. It would be nice to easily randomize them.

Just to follow up with this, in the current version (2014 R4) and several of the earlier versions, you can randomize the color of the roofs very easily.

You can randomize color, but this doesn't apply to the material does it?  I use the randomize color option all the time.  It would really nice if they include the roofing materials in this.

Agreed, but it's better then one common color.

 

If you want, you can create a Style Rule that randomizes the roof material and limits it to just the materials you want. I'm working on a blog post that should be done this evening that explains Style Rules. Watch for it at civil3dplus.wordpress.com
