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.

Hello everyone,
I always loved the mesh by Helga for this hair ever since it came out but I thought it deserved some decent recolors so I recolored it in three colors. (Sorry about the typo on the picture). Since this was so popular on my site I thought I would share it here.

I've uploaded the extra recolors to http://modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=264812


You need the mesh from http://www.vitasims2.com/sims2_Free_Head_Mesh9.htm
It is the 2nd hair on the page.


Thanks to Nouk for allowing me to use her textures!

Wow!!! This looks amazing ^__^ didn't even know this mesh, the texture looks much softer and more natural. Wonderful work.

Wow! Your recolors are absolutely superb. Might I inquire as to whether or not this hair is animated?

It isn't. I would fix that but I'm not a good mesher at all.

I'm having the same problem with the mesh. I tried right-clicking and 'Save as', which starts the download, but when the file is opened it is incomplete. Some of the recolours are there, but it always fails to get the mesh.

Would Helga agree to you including the mesh here if it won't download there?

Mesh worked for me too! These are sooo much nicer than the origional! I realllly wish you had made a black recolor. If you get the chance do you think you could add a black recolor?

Yes, I'll make a black recolor but it will be around new years before I can do it. I will update this thread and my website when I make it.

The mesh kept failing with both Firefox and Internet Explorer. I tried with a Mac computer using Safari and it worked. I'll just copy the files across to my PC.

I don't know why it works for some and not for others.

Anyway, great recolours!

To everyone having troubles with the mesh try downloading this hair from my site (link in my signature). It has the mesh included. Click downloads and it is on page 2 of female hairs

P.S. I think this is okay because there was no policy for these hairs anyway

These retextures are great! I hope you will consider doing other colors of this... :D

For those having trouble getting the mesh off of Vita Sims, all you need to do is right-click on the image of the hair and select "Save Target As..." ("Save Link As..." in Firefox) and you should be able to download the rar.

Thanks for that link. The mesh download didn't work for me either...just a whole lot of gibberish. The retextures a great. The originals left a lot to be desired.

So long and thanks for all the fish!
