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.
These are modified Louis' skins to expand the "Natural RedHead Project" at http://www.insimenator.net/forumdisplay.php?f=463 and http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?p=1470508. These skins are useful for making red-headed sims.

The skins come in three different body mesh sizes: normal maxis, slim bodybuilder + bodybuilder meshes. Meshes must be downloaded for the slim bodybuilder and bodybuilder skins to work.

I used a mixture of AllenABQ's hair transparencies and my own modifications to create these. My thanks to AllenABQ at http://www.insimadult.net/forumdisplay.php?f=408.

The females are Louis originals with only the upper body modified and realign to Warlokk meshes (not required for these skins to work). No other changes to the female skins were made. See Louis' skin policy here: http://louis.new21.net/. Many thanks to Louis for her lovely skintones.

There are 3 different "hairy" versions (males only) on light skintones:

Hairy males have a light sprinkling of reddish hair across their chest and arms, lower stomach and legs only. 1/20/07- added a new one on mid skintone in Maxis size males only.

XHairy males have denser hair across chest, arms ,legs, upper and lower stomach.

XXHairy males have even denser, curlier hair everywhere (back included). This is not a skin for the weak at heart or those who fear hair.

NOTE: Babies born with these skins have red moles placed as follows:

Slim bodybuilder (SlimBB): One above left nipple
Normal Maxis: One on the back of the right shoulder

These is nice. Is there any chance for other hair colors as well?

I am glad you put these up here. They are my favorite skins for redheads! I am just loving it.

Yes, I will probably do others. Although I use AllenABQ's hair transparencies I also modify and add my own hair patterns also. This tends to take longer to produce skins. So be patience and if there is a particular hair + skintone combination you are interested in I could try to produce it.

Thanks, Although I really basically only use SimCribbling skintones (and my own furry skintones, of course :P)

Have you given any thought to XXX-hairy?

If you aren't sick of red hair at this point, I would love to see a red on a somewhat darker skin. Many of the carriers of the "redhead" gene (just one, not two) don't have red hair and they can tan. The guys often have red beards and body hair.

XXXhairy is too scary...............
I will make you some hairy reds in a mid skintone, hows that? Tan might be too dark for the hair to show up properly but I checked them on mid and it looked good.

Sounds great! I forgot just how tan, the tan skins are.

I was still holding out for Sasquatch. Guess I'll have to check out emino's furry skins. His Firefox should do the trick.

Added hairy red on mid skin tone for normal maxis males per Kaneonapua's request. Sorry, no Sasquatch skin.

I stand corrected Emino! I do like the Firefox for really red and hairy sims.

Jwilson5, thank you for the mid skintone! It is the shade I actually had in mind and it is quite attractive for the darker redheads men and brunette's with red body hair.

What are your terms of use for these and the dark-haired skins? The reason I'm asking is these bodies might look great for some celebrity Sims I have in development and would like to upload eventually, but I would need to use my own facial textures so I can keep the celebrity resemblance. I can completely understand if you can't permit any alterations even with credit/linkback because these are already an incorporation with another artist's work, so don't feel bad saying so. In fact I kind of expect to hear no. But just thought I would ask.

What if one little pop could open a world of wonder
So sensory, so satisfying. It's the magic Friskies makes happen every day in so many ways
Friskies, feed the senses. Cat sez eff that, gimme cheezburgers.

Both Louis and AllenABQ have given permission for their works to be used freely with credit given. I have taken their works and combined them to create something new but I give credit to them for providing the base works. Most folks who use these modified skins to create sims just link back to my thread. This way folks can go to my thread and see all the credit links for both the original artists. They did superb work and deserve acknowledgement.

You can use them as you wish, however, please no pay sites as our works are for a free sim community. Credit would be nice.

Okay, thanks so much. If I use these skins on a Sim I upload, I will definitely link back to the thread where I downloaded the skin from, or to your MTS2 profile if you should ever remove the thread. I only upload to this community. If I let my sims be redistributed I specify that any content not exclusively mine needs to be stripped off or redistributed according to the TOS of the artist who created it. Of course, there are always a few who don't listen to anything any of us say. Sigh...

Anyway, thanks again. These are superb. You've done a marvelous job combining the elements of the other artists into a creation that is much needed and appreciated!
