This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I think I beat my own record for hair length! This hair is longer than Demonic hair was, and steel look and animate well And I mean they are really animated – not only move with the body parts, but although move in the wind and so on I’m so proud I learned to do this! I’ll probably update my previous meshes with animation soon, so check for updates from time to time. It looks absolutely fantastic in game, so alive…
This mesh was very hard to make and to animate, I honestly consider it one of my most complicated creations ever, and an illustration of my development as a creator
This mesh has a teen version, but no child or toddler – they’ll probably will look weird with such a long hair anyway, but all the ages are recolored.
Natural colors are color categorized, un natural are in custom bin.
You need mesh file for any of the recolor sets to work.
I made some re textured recolors, that look more silky, and left some hand painted once, for a messy hair.
The mesh has 9 layers, so recolor package is big, but retexturing it is very simple – since I made is from sketch I took care to make it as easy as possible.
Polygon count – 1772, I’m proud of this too – it’s fairy low for a hair this long and complex.
This mesh was created using Milk Shape 1.7.7a, Wess UniMesh Plugin, and Adobe Photoshop for texturing

Thank you

This is the most amazing hair to have been made for the sims and that it is animated even makes it t he best one out here. I just love how you have the strand in front it looks so natural. Thank You for the best hair mesh that I will have now.

I loooove the messy version. I'm gonna try it out on my self-sim 'cause it's the only decent hair I've seen that the length of my actual hair. Thanks a ton!

This is truly an example of having outdone yourself! Big congrats for pushing yourself as a designer and adding the animations as well; that's awesome! I'd be proud of myself too; way to go and can't wait to see what you come up with next. When you re-animate your creations you should post one with some recolors just to let us know.

I love love LOVE long simHair but I know it's a mighty design challenge so congrats for completing ATB hair successfully (around the butt as my friend who has hair of that length refers to hers) it's quite an accomplishment.
