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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Hey hey!
I finally made something different from Edwardian/Victorian stuff and since the new bypass system is on - decided to give it a try.
This is nothing that much special - I just edited a Maxis Base game hair. Added few layers,made it longer and made it easier to recolor.
Important!18.12.13 I just got a message for a user,who wants to retexture this mesh and i noticed something in his picture,that i didn't notice when i was testing it in-game. The bottom layer of the front hair was sinking in sim's body,so I edited the mesh and if you want to have the fixed version just re-download the mesh and replace it with the new one. It's not that noticeable,but in any case i added the new fixed rar in attachments.

Read about mesh:
*Mesh works from child to elder
*Polys: Fc-1370; Vc-987 (low poly mesh),not detailed
*I edited Maxis's original animation,since i made it longer
*4 Family Binned colors - Red,Black,Brown and Blond
*Grey for elders linked to Blond
*Maxis textures(haven't edited the map)

Of course there could be clipping,the mesh is not perfect at any case. I just felt the need to edit that particular mesh from the game and since it turned out ok - decided to share for all those Maxis fans.

Polygon Counts:
Fc-1370; Vc-987
