The latest world by the very talented kiwi_tea, the Sims 2 Riverblossom Hills remake (http://www.modthesims.info/d/429780 ) which also included remakes of the inhabitants of the original town including the plantsim Rose Greenman, inspired me to convert the Sims 2 plantsim hair for Rose to wear for my game.

The hair is in two versions: 1) TS2PlantsimHairM+F,T-E_byEsmeraldaF_Original, a straightforward conversion with the original colours and textures for those who want the hair to look authentic as it did in The Sims 2, and 2) TS2PlantsimHairM+F,T-E_byEsmeraldaF_Recolourable, a recolourable version for those who would like a bit of variety. The two versions are compatible and can be in your game at the same time, so you can use both.

It's for men and women teen to elder, and is found in the Hat Hairs section in CAS. (I may make versions for children and toddlers at some point in the future.)

Here's kiwi_tea's Rose Greenman wearing the original converted hair:


Here's the original conversion vs the recolourable conversion - you can achieve some pretty effects by using patterns on the hair as well as colours. The recolourable version has three recolourable areas: the leafy main hair, the stems of the little sprigs that sprout up on top, and the buds of the sprigs.


Below are three examples - the original version and the recolourable version in solid red with blue buds, and in patterned:

If you want to make your plantsims even more authentic, you can try the plantsim skin as tattoo converted by emhpb, here: http://www.modthesims.info/d/387593

One issue: As is usual with custom Hat Hair, this hair will revert to a base game hair when the sim is in the bathtub or shower. You can make it stay on while bathing by giving them the 'Never Nude' trait if it bothers you - but I just don't look at my sims while they're bathing!

Hope you enjoy this hair and having a few plantsims running around your town!
