So far all DF has given us is the Gable Roof.
We need more variety. But not all of those, some of those are horrible designs. Butterfly is O.K. today, but without rubberized roofing materials 'for-get-it'.
Not to mention you couldn't (shouldn't?) build butterfly roofs in snowy places... like fantasy medieval Europe. Though maybe Zaltar would, you know him.

Just to clear things up -

A "4 sided roof" as you call it, is a Pyramid Hip Roof or just a Hip Roof. See easy diagram.

A hip roof can bend or have a ridge, but if all four eave walls are a square then you have a point at the top.

I used to be the roof problem solver for a world wide company. Frank Lloyd Write need a guy like me, his roofs were notorious leakers.

We can see someone seeing those pictures back in the day and thinking 'we should do that'.

It is a remarkable preview of what was to come, even if we are still waiting for 4 sided roofs.

Quite snazzy. I love the 4-sided roof. My dearest wish for a CBS expansion is more varied roofs, some fancy facades, and more varied posts.

PS - I did the same thing to figure out my CBS pledge.
