I think she's referring to the link on the left to the thread that contains Plicka's hair mesh.

Thank you for this; they're very lovely.

You have a nice hair mesh!! Such gorgeous long, thick locks with beautiful colors! The only problem is, it's not showing up in my game. This seems to happen with a lot of downloads. Why is that?

Did you go to the link under meshes required and download the mesh? It won't show up in the game unless you do. Otherwise, I'm not quite sure.

Okay, here is a direct link to the mesh. Don't worry, there are all kinds of links going on up there and I'm sure anyone can get easily confused.

[COLOR=MediumTurquoise]Wow those are some nice recolors. Thanks for making them and the black and pink one is interesting lol.[/COLOR] :insane:

I'm back, trying make a name for myself in the sims community. I'm going to try to match up the meshes with the content I previously made so I can share it with everyone :]. I wish my username didn't suck so much, I think I'll make a new one for the sims 3 :]

Oh don't worry, I would have been upset too if I couldn't get it to work. I'm glad it worked out for you.

I'm so glad you like the recolors Plicka! Your mesh is just beautiful.

I loved the mesh immediately but the textures were not so good (in my personal opinion). Your textures are surely fantastic! A great way to improve the mesh. You're great!
PS: could you give me some suggestion in texturing hairtones? I would like to create my own hairtone recolours but I don't know where to start!

First, you should search online for actual pictures of real hair or wigs. Once you have found a good style and color that you like, go into your photoshop/paint program and crop a long, straight section of the hair. Then, bring up the hair you want to recolor and paste the strip of hair on top. Copy and paste until you have covered the entire area. After you like the way it looks, flatten the image and use the smudge tool to make the hair smooth and shiny. Then just save for everyone! lol
