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.

Hello people! Today I'm coming with this great hairstyle I made some time ago. Since my site is not very famous, I decided to share it here at MTS. As the title says, it's a new mesh by me in the 4 colors, and binned. Hope you like it! Here are the previews:

o If you want to recolor it, go..but don't include the mesh (which can be downloaded separately at my site)
o You can't include it on your packaged sims
o Preview's credits go to Fabulousims

Enjoy it!

Oh, how nice! New hair meshes are always appreciated, I can't get enough of them. <3 It's a shame that it's only for adults and elders, though. And I'd also like to know if it's animated as well! :]

Thanks all! The hairstyle isn't animated since I don't know how to animate, I'd love to learn, so I'll search some tutos. PLEASE if someone wants to make it for all ages CONTACT me!

I believe the way hair moves depends on what skeleton joints the mesh vertices are assigned to. You want hair at neck level to be partly assigned to head and partly to neck, and hair below the neck to be partly assigned to spine2. You can check this tutorial for an explanation of assigning vertices to bone joints (discusses the vertices at the neck for short hair styles to prevent a gap in post #6)


and this tutorial actually talks about the spine2 joint and long hair, but its older and doesn't have as many pictures.


I don't make hair myself, so you may want to ask some folks who do make animated hair. Hope this helps and I look forward to seeing more of your work.
Bowties are cool.

Mmm fabgirl, are you sure you extracted the 5 files to the correct folder?

#25 Old 29th Mar 2008 at 9:14 PM
Yes, it says that they are corrupt.
I have tried many times, I'll try again now.

(copy&paste-That's what it is coming up with)

I really like this hair, it looks gorgeous.
I was also hoping to do some recolours, as I like the more natural reds, although I love the red you've done, too.
