This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
***Update 16 August 2011: There has been report of the hair crashing some people's games. Therefore I've addressed, dealt with the problem and uploaded a fixed version. You can find it in the Download section. If you already have the previous version installed, remove it from your Packages folder and move the new one in.

Update 25 July 2011: The hairstyle has been converted for males by Acornicus at their blog here: http://acornsims.blogspot.com/2011/...t-and-hair.html

Update 22 July 2011: Silly me! This was already enabled for teens to begin with! :3

Hi all,

This is my very first hair mesh, a mix and match and edition of a few base game hairstyles with a very simple ultimate purpose: to create Ellie Goulding's hairstyle and the panda hat she loves so much. This hair is also part of my grand Ellie Goulding project which includes the sim, clothing, posters and paintings. ***Links to the other items can be found in the Download tab, under the Multi-part Download section.

Aside from the mesh, the control map and hair texture are also custom, together with the hat texture of course. The hat contains two recolorable channels, which are all the panda details (ears, eyes and nose) and the rest of the hat.

Available for Teens, Young Adults and Adults.

Here are some shots of the hair from different angles:

Some color testing:

And what the hairstyle should look like on the Ellie Goulding sim, and also with some movements:

Polygon Counts:
LOD0 and 1: 5486
LOD2: 5198
LOD3: 160

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
