Ponytail mesh for Men (Teens and Adults) for those without Unniversity!

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 decided to pick up the torch for this from a request I saw. Besides, I wanted a ponytail for guys too! However, I don't want to subject myself to an extra hour of loading just for a ponytail mesh from Unniversity. Nothing else in it interests me! So I decided to take the transgendered ponytail for women and fix the mesh so it would fit on a guy's skull. It was a lot harder than just enlarging the skull as they are different shapes. Still, I think it came out pretty well. Try as I might though, there are two typically hair line splits by the back of the head. They tend to be only noticible if you happen to be looking from behind as the character tips his head to the side.

Considering what I was working from, the 95% improvement should be appreciated. I haven't really tested this in game yet, so that's why I turn to you guys. Let me know how the animation plays out and if there are any problems. I'll try to fix them up!

I included a sim with just the hair mesh in use. I tried just sending the package I was editing in the Saved Sims folder to a friend along with the mesh, but she couldn't get it to work so I thought this would be a safer route.

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

*SQUEALS like a girl!* yesssssssssss!!!! :jig::dance: this is what I wanted!!!!

Don't worry about the hairline slice since that isn't really noticeable in game. I have the women's ponytail and it does the same thing! Oh and before I forget, can we recolour this?!?! huh? huh? can we?!?!

Heh, me too, me too.

Hope you enjoy and let me know how it turns out! This was my first released mesh. It looked pretty well in bodyshop, but I didn't have any guys I wanted to change the hairstyles of at the moment. I am eager to hear the verdict!

Unfortunately boys don't get a ponytail, but the pigtails. XP However, I did both teen and adult because I wanted to be thorough and couldn't deprive the teen boys!

I'll see what I can do, but they shouldn't be too hard to get rid of. I have never tried to recolor this particular hair, but they are fairly thin pieces. I was sort of wondering if they could just be removed via alpha channel fiddling.

Cooool!!!

It's the same here: I don't want to buy an EP just for very few meshes and very few objects I am interested in. (Everything else like the whole Campus thing doesn't appeal to me at all.)

So thank you, thank you, thank you!
