Hi. It's always better if You attach a max file (save with the lowest max version so more people can open it) so we can see what You are doing, and what needs to be changed for Your desired result.

Well, since you are using Roof macro it is a little bit tricky to elaborate but:
Roof macro has a submacro in the style which uses X, Y, Z size to calculate angles, overlapping etc.. especially important is Y size (thickness) that has a major effect on the whole style.
So, the easiest workaround for just scaling tiles is to add transform node and scale only X/Z size.
Set the parameter value 100+scale% since the default 100% will be 1:1

Not an ideal solution but just an idea...

yes thank you for help ! but it's also weird to be so complicated to change roof from library...
well I even manage in this time to build roof from tutorial, it seems to fit better to this situation. But I have little problem with overlapping...they are not "tight" enough and i can see empty space between them in some places. Care to look at this situation ?

Hi

You can adjust the "tightness" with segments padding values:


In case You want a deeper RailClone understanding  I would recommend You follow our ongoing series of tutorials. You may also find helpful our detailed documentation.
I would highly recommend you to check our RailClone "Getting Started with RailClone" followed by our "Next Steps with RailClone" guides too.

yes exactly that was what I was looking for, thank You.
I do want to have deeper understanding of railclone since I was always looking forward to check it's possibilities. Unfortunately I'm in the middle of job and that's why I have to ask really basics questions on forum. The plan is to check all those tutorials but need to have more time for this.

kind regards
