Sideswept: recolors of Andie's OFB Pixie hair for males of all ages

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 edited the alpha because I like to see both of my Sim's eyes, and I think it looks very cute this way. You get all four basic colors, not in color bins because I like my Sims to inherit hairstyles. The eyebrows WILL match haircolor, because I'm very strict about that.

If you mention that the alpha and recolors came from me (BastDawn), you may:

#1 Redistribute these files wherever you like,
#2 Use the alpha and textures for other files (like the female version of this mesh, which I'm not going to do),
#3 Modify my files for appearance in the Maxis hair bins instead of the custom bins,
#4 All of the above at once, if you like

Thanks to Andie for the wonderful meshes; I really love hairstyles that are for all age groups. You can find the meshes (and Andie's color binned defaults) at:

Ooh that's really excellent, I quite liked the over-the-eye look for *certain* sims, but it's a lot more versatile like this. I'd love this for females [flutters eyelashes]

Love the hair! I was wondering though, has anyone mentioned a shadowed portion at the top of the head? (this happens with Andies "Animated" 2nd version also)
I can't describe it very well... but it's sort of.. well, like a shadow haha I read somewhere that it might have to do with your specific computer, but I hadn't had any problems like this before. My computer is pretty updated. (shrugs) Any suggestions?

This is wonderful! I loved that hair, but I hated not being about to see my sims eyes. Could you make a female version too? That would be awesome

Yeah, I know what you mean. It happened to me too. I blamed it on the integrated graphics card, and just installed the old mesh. I haven't tried it with my new graphics card yet though..

Thanks, I like to see the eyes too.

dumb question do you have to have ofb for this?

#24 Old 28th Dec 2006 at 10:42 AM
Overlee, yes I think so as it is based off a mesh that is included in OFB.

Great job.
