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.
UPDATE 9 JANUARY 2012: Following numerous requests, I've finally been able to remake this item with a near-white texture so that you can use any light colour or pattern you like. Please check out the new version under the Download tab. The new version is a Hat Hair, the old version was an Accessory that required you to give the sim a shaved head before wearing it - I've left both versions in case anyone does want it as an accessory for some reason or prefers a dark texture.

Here is the Ninja mask from The Sims 2 converted for The Sims 3.


It's for men and women from Teen to Elder and the new version is found in Hat Hairs.

My original version of this item was in a dark texture and could only be recoloured/repatterned in dark shades - this was because at the time I could only find a dark texture for it in the TS2 data file and could not lighten it successfully without it going pixellated. But I've now found a lighter texture I missed before, and remade the item.

Also, my original version of this was an accessory, because I did not yet know how to import a Hat Hair into TS3 back then, and you used to have to give the sim a shaved hairdo to wear it. The new version is a Hat Hair, so you no longer need to do that.

So, you can now have nice light pastel colours and patterns as below:



Note that this item may have weird shadows in CAS, as many TS2 conversions do, but don't worry, the weird shadows will not be in there in-game. Also, note that you'll need to take care with your facial sculpture - for instance, unusually large noses or chins may stick out through the mask.

Below, Mrs Crumplebottom has gone all exotic and mysterious looking, ready for a spot of intrigue:


But meanwhile, a frightening intruder creeps up on a blissfully unaware Tamara Donner...



TIP: For those who don't know, you can give your sim a ninja outfit to complete the look by entering the cheat code unlockoutfits on before going into CAS - this will unhide all the hidden outfits, and you will then be able to choose the ninja outfit.


INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS:

Unzip the .zip file, and copy the .package file to your Mods\Packages folder. You only need the one file for both men and women, as it is enabled for both.

If you don't have a Mods\Packages folder and/or don't know how to install .package files, please see full instructions here: http://www.modthesims.info/wiki.php...g_Package_Files

Thank you for looking and I hope you'll enjoy this exotic bit of headwear!

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.

Just wondering, why not put this in the headwear under hair section so no hair will stick out?

Cool idea though.

It would probably be best to ask the creator of the hood if they would convert it: http://www.modthesims.info/member.php?u=10452 . If she says she doesn't want to convert it but doesn't mind if someone else does, then maybe I could give it a try - I actually need a hood for a sim I'm thinking of making, myself!

Because it does not appear to be technically possible in The Sims 3 to import a custom hat as 'hair' - I've never been able to get it to work, in any case. Works perfectly as an accessory, though - it's a simple matter to just give the sim a shaved hairstyle and then put this item on their head!

It's the unlocked ninja outfit that comes with TS3 but is a 'hidden' outfit - see paragraph that starts with 'TIPS' in the description page.

you should make the default color white if that is possible so that you can have more customization options.

Unfortunately it's not possible, as the original item was only made in dark colours and it would have meant having to make completely new textures. I wanted to keep it authentic to the original by using the original textures.

No, sorry, I don't do clothing requests, and especially not TS2-TS3 clothing conversions, as the meshes are incompatible so it requires actually making a whole new mesh - too much hard work and aggravation.

This is awsome! But I wonder, is it possible to seperate the actual mask from the hood? It would be perfect for a kakashi sim then.

No, it's all one piece and would require too much effort to get it to look right. It would probably be easier if you just make a new mask from scratch.
