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 used AllenABQ's very generously supplied Hair Transparencies and Louis' (aka simscribbling) Self Makeup #7, combined them, and here is the result. This is in Testing. I made these with Pets Patched Bodyshop, so they should work with all The Sims 2 games.


This is Set #2 of Allen's Hair Transparencies, which has:
-No hair on chest or stomach
-Medium amount of hair on the arms, legs, and glutes
-No hair on the back


This works fit to fat, from teen to elder on males. I used Louis' Light, Mid, Dark Tan, and Dark of her Self Make-up #7 set. The females are unchanged. Only the males show body hair.

For the Lightest and Mid skintones, I used all hair colors (BLK,BRN,BLD,RED). For Dark Tan, I only did BLK and BRN, and only BLK for the Dark skintone. The combinations I didn't do because they didn't look realistic and they showed up strangely.

Hope you enjoy these!

Very much thanks to:
AllenABQ (HairySims.com),
Louis (@@[email protected]@),

Keep up the good work, these are GREAT! However may I make a suggestion? On some of the thumbnails for the skins, there is no indication of what color the hair is. It only gives the skintone. This makes it difficult if you are using CAS to make sims since every time you choose to add a custom skintone, it puts the everyday clothes back on the sim and you can't see the chest, legs, etc. Makes for a lot of flipping back and forth to put the sim in its underwear so you can see what the skintone looks like.

Thankyou. I went to the site the templates come from and sadly I can't download anything because I'm not old enough.

I don't know if this is what you mean, but I hope this helps:

If there are no color names (i.e BRN, BLD, RED) under the icon, it means it's BLK. When I started making the sets, I made the black hair ones first and decided not to put "BLK" underneath them, so I could easily edit the picture to add BRN, RED, and BLD later on. Of course, now I realize it's kind of silly and that I could've just changed it to say BLK after I was done.

But just know that the ones with no color name, it means it's black. Should I add this to the description of the package, you think?

Or is this not what you mean? :p
