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.
This was originally supposed to be a recolor of Callum91's Tata Young all-ages hair, but I was dissatisfied with the way Maxis put the original mesh together and so I wound up re-doing the entire thing from scratch. I reassigned all the vertices (which eliminated most of the clipping when the head is tilted back), added animations, and used a different hair mesh group because I wanted the additional layer for the toddler. So, here's the all-new mesh, recolored and with slight alpha edits to the hair for a less stringy look. The grey color is part of the black recolor file, so you'll need that one for elders.

Polygon Counts:
1162 triangles for adult and teen, 1194 for child, and 1118 for toddler, all combined into one 381kb package file

Additional Credits:
Sims 2 Thailand for the original mesh
Callum91 for the original idea

No problem, just so long as it doesn't go to a pay site -- even the Exchange is okay with me. Have fun!

Perfect, I loved this hair, but the stiffness was getting to me as it often does. Thank you!
