View Full Version : Lower poly long wavy hair for men?
19th Mar 2011, 8:18 AM
Lately, I've been looking for a hair similar to Cazy Anto's Hair 80 (http://i63.photobucket.com/albums/h125/dmoontear/cazyantohair802.jpg) for the Sims 3 but seem to be coming up dry in all searches.(Or I'm being search-stupid.)
Now, as for why I don't just use that hair, I play my game in high quality because, for the most it plays fine. But if I try to put this on a sim, the game starts to drag because of the insanely high polycount.(32000+ :|)
Though I doubt that this question will be asked, the reason I will not lower thy poly count myself is for 3 reasons; It's rude. And TSRW and CTU can't load it, so I can't export it.
Any help is very much appreciated.

Yeah, there aren't many long hairs out there with good poly counts for TS3 yet. And for long curly male hair... I can't find anything on the sites I usually visit. :S Reduced to scavenging from the arse-end, here... hopefully you can find some decent retextures googling the mesh names/numbers, though.
This Newsea one is 8k, which is ok, though it's not as wavy as the one you were looking at - it's also on the booty under TSR/Newsea/hair: http://www.thesimsresource.com/artists/newsea/downloads/details/category/sims3-hair-hairstyles-male/title/newsea-viking-male-hairstyle-/id/956859/
And this one is 11k, which is, well, bad, but at least not as bad as that Anto mesh! http://www.thesimsresource.com/artists/newsea/downloads/details/category/sims3-hair-hairstyles-male/title/newsea-vivy-male-hairstyle-/id/978257/
This Peggy one (also booty) is about 6k: http://www.peggyzone.com/Sims3Detail.html?id=000441&sortId=01
The one (free) is also 6k: http://www.peggyzone.com/Sims3Detail.html?id=000099&sortId=00 (It's an exe for some reason - don't run the exe, open it in WinRAR, and extract the package file. I'm not sure the file will *work*, but... hey, I guess you can try it...)
There also some at Cazy's site ( http://cazyxdarkplace.blogspot.com/ ), but the poly counts on those are almost as bad as the Nubie/Anto one.
There are also a few more which are wavy, but not as long as you're looking for:

Usually, creators won't mind if you tweak their meshes for personal use. The technical issues don't help though.

snipped down to avoid page stretch of doom.
Thank you, very, very much for the links, I will check them otu after this post.
And I'm glad that I wasn't just being a search retard.
