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.

I wanted some very simple hairs for my female Sims that all of us wear every day. Nothing special, just a normal hair. There was a nice basegame hair which I have used as base. I have created 8 new hairs of different lengths. Every length comes in 3 variations: with a fringe ("pony" in German), without a fringe (center part), without a fringe and the hair pulled behind the ears.

Click on the pictures for a larger preview.

Features:
  • For female Sims: teens, young adults, adults, elders
  • New hair, it doesn't overwrite anything.
  • Fully recolorable.

I have made a collage of every hair. This is "oepu fhair wavylong nopony ear". Look at the bottom of this thread for the other pics.

Known Issues: The hair animates very much. Sometimes it looks a little bit weird. But take a look by yourself.

You can pick and choose the file you want. I have added a file with all hair and seperated ones.

Polygon Counts:
- Poly count of all hair with fringe: 2350 (Lod0, Lod1), 734 (Lod2), 200 (Lod3)
- Poly count of all hair without fringe: 1998 (Lod0, Lod1), 566 (Lod2), 176 (Lod3)

Additional Credits:
Thanks to Delphy for Daboobs.
Moreover I have used Photoshop for the texture, Milkshape 3D for the Mesh and CTU for preview.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Oh this is cute! I never use the basegame one (I'm not crazy about the bangs) so I'm very grateful! I will use these! Love them! :-D

Ohh, I just have to add: you made the bangs work!

I love how you did versions of the hair behind the ears!! One of my biggest pet peeves of a lot of long hair is it's always in the sims face!! These will be great!! I can't wait to use them!! Thanks Oepu!!

You ROCK!! Huge improvement to a kinda blah hair style. Besides, I wish all hairs had subtle varieties like this... It's nice when you can change hair with each outfit without it seeming like a different Sim. ty Oepu

These are great, finally a sims hairstyle that looks somewhat like my own!

Thanks! :O)

These are greta... Looks just like my friend's hair which will be useful in making her. I'd like to see the base hair made less poofy and with a longer finge- It's just too short!

The issues don’t seem that much, and in comparison to some of the issues with EA stuff, your hair is impressive and free. The variations are fab, so thanks for the work and for sharing.

I love this, I didn't use the basegame hair too much, I prefer yours!!!

Wonderful! I hated how all of the longer hairstyles completely covered the ears. What's the point of having earrings in the game if you can only see them with up-do's and pixie cuts? Your work is deceptively simple, but so well-done and sorely needed!

#25 Old 11th Nov 2009 at 2:24 AM
Ooh, the behind-the-ear ones will be very useful! Thanks for these
