Did this occur when you were building a free standing structure outside? Or did this occur while digging into a mountain? Here is some useful information:
Mouse over the square. If it says "roof (thin)" you can collapse it away. If it says "roof (thick)" you can collapse it but it never goes away; it's like hundreds of feed of rock.

Ceiling Shadows Bug
« Reply #2 on: November 05, 2013, 11:48:33 PM »

There was a sort of inlet formed by the rock walls which I closed off with man-made walls. When I did so it tried to form a ceiling but the room was too large so it left a gaping hole in my ceiling. Since I didn't intend for it to have a ceiling in the first place I decided to sell the walls so I could get some sunlight back into the place, however the shadowed stayed even though I took away the walls and it said the roof had collapsed. Picture attached to illustrate my meaning.

Its not a bug.

Every roof piece will stay up as long as there is a wall tile within 6 or 7 tiles, which i think they still have.

That being said, i wish there was a way to remove artificial ceilings (roof's) in the game as it can become very annoying in some circumstances. For example, if you open up a new area underground that is exposed, the second you add a door into it, it will put up a roof. permanently removing the ability to put solar collectors there.

Is this the case?

Ah that makes more sense thanks, agreed btw. I had solar panels in that "yard" until the roof went up, and then they became unusable so I had to sell them all, so this should be in the suggestions section then? Thanks!

The way roofing works will change in future versions. If you believe this to be solved I will close thread. Thank you.

If this is in a mountain or near a mountain this is not a bug. Current game mechanics have it so within 7 blocks of a support/wall, the roof will remain standing. If this is the case it will be closed by design.
