This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
I've had this mesh from XMSims in my game in some form or other in my game since it was first release - which, if memory serves, is several years! I've always rather liked how it looked, and since I've figured out a pretty good style when it comes to hand-painting my own textures, I figured I'd give this mesh a shot.

And because I have absolutely NO regard for the loading speed of my game, I went rather overboard There are eight natural recolours, all binned appropriately and linked to two grey files, two Maxis matching shades, because several people expressed their desire for a more Maxian blonde and red. These are binned, but not linked so you will have to download the naturals for the other colours. The white is not linked to anything, but rather is a unnatural shade. It is only included in the image for purposes of neatness (I felt it was a shame to disturb the symetry of the next image

And twelve neon/unatural shades in literally every colour of the rainbow. Great if you're doing one of those rainbow legacies, or if you're like me and like the brights The neon colour carries over into elder hood. Elders need colour too!

Texture detail - the mesh has been completely retextured and re-alphaed. I've tried to keep the pixelisation down to a bare minumum.

All files are appropriately binned, are for all ages toddler to elder and have been compressorised. You will need the mesh from XM sims, found here (scroll down to the bottom)

I have no policy really. Do what you will with these - you are free to reupload with your own sims, harvest the texture and/or alpha for use on other meshes, ect. I'd rather you didn't charge anyone for it.

And I will leave you with a picture of my favourite sim Eris, modeling the pink hair.
