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.
Thought I might try this, and then couldn't stop. So here are all toddler hats that came with Generations and Seasons, as well as most of the store's toddler-hats converted to baby-accessoires. The only one I left out is the store aviator-hat, because it's mostly the same as the one from seasons. And the tassles were clipping.
Base-game compatible - the original toddler-hats are not required.
  • All hats found under Clothing/Everyday/Accessoires, categorized as earrings. You need NRaas MasterController to get your baby into CAS and put the hats on. They are not valid for random, and therefore won't appear on newborns.
  • Although there is an "Outwear" button for babies in CAS, you can't set outwear for babies like you do for other ages. It's not working properly. The only category really usable is Everyday.
  • All hats can be used together with purpleplumbobs baby pacifier, which is categorized as glasses.
  • I've included custom thumbnails. Please do no delete them - by default, the game creates a completely blank thumbnail. Also keep this in mind if you want to safe your custom presets.
  • The sun-hat is only enabled for girls, everything else is unisex.
  • The winter-hat comes with two presets: The first with stencil, the second without. (It's thumbnails are mirrored - on the Sim the stencil is on the other side of the head.)
  • These are not hat-slider compatible (it doesn't work on babies). But I've taken special care to avoid clipping with QuizicalGin's baby-hair .
  • More QuizicalGin: Like so often, I made this with her unwrapped baby in mind (found here ) However, I think it doesn't look so very bad with the blanket baby, especially the warm hats.

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.
