    For thatch, 16 angles is surely enough. For a pattern like brick, you might easily see misalignments.

    Still, the results I've seen so far are really good. Cheers! I hope to have a use for this some day!

    Edit: did I just say what you just said? :p I do that. Free bonus in the Alzheimers/ADD combo package.

    If you build a set of gimp brushes with "random" rotation, you define the rotation angle, so can ensure the buildings line up with thatch/shingle angles.

    I'd hate to have to align my buildings to the roofing material. That seems backwards! (although, sometimes, practicality intervenes, dunnit).

    This procedure begins to sound as if what it really needs to be fully automatic is an AI engine to recognize roof segments and their angles/curves.

    I know what you mean but its not too bad. It would just be a little better if a house like this was a few degrees anticlockwise.

    Manually.

    I had snap to guides and used the pen tool to outline each of the shapes then filled them with B/W gradients.

    For the two dormers, I also did the same then with those areas selected used the levels control to brighten them up to match the roof lines.

    I use my own tools so my scripts are custom jobs. RobA tho took the idea and ported it successfully to Gimp and that was posted here:
