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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Update 13/10/2013: Added light recolours. I have no idea why I never made them in the first place. Also made the dark blond a bit less yellow.

I wanted to recolour and alpha edit this hair, because it has a nice mesh, but I thought the texture left it looking a little limp. The alpha was edited using parts of
Ren's alpha from her no.13 hair. The texture used is by Nouk. Thanks to these creators for their lovely open policies.

It is colour binned, and is available for all ages, toddler to elder. It keeps its colour for the elders, as there are separate white and silver options in the Custom bin.

The mesh has now been uploaded for convenience. Alternatively you can get it from DSB's SkyDrive.

Hair Style:
      Natural Colours
Maxis Flags:
      Not Applicable

These are very cool, I will use the red one for an alternate hair for Reno (FFVII). Thanks so much for sharing these. The silver is very sexy, I have a weakness for those silver haired boys!

SonnyDog - Sorry, I don't know why that would be. You might try asking in the forums, I'm a bit clueless with technical matters.

bLuEeN - You need to click on the "DeditalSheep MaleHair004 VigakuRecolours.rar" link in the post (or in the Download tab if you're using the new browsing system). You also need the mesh, which can be downloaded here:|_malehair004|_mesh.lzh

Click on "Download" near the top at the left. As far as I can tell, there are four meshes, for different ages.

I dont think it is worth it for me to get a whole new program and figure out how to work it just for a new hair, sorry. They look really ausome though.
