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.
Hey all! OKAY, when I posted my first mesh, FAUXHAWK Ponytail, there was a lot of confusion because, well, it was my first mesh so . . . I wanted to get opinions/testers for 2 new meshes.

I redid the fauxhawk ponytail [pompadour] mesh weeks ago, but now it looks nice in game without gaps in forehead or neckline. It looks normal on all ages, but the fauxhawk is only on all adults/youngadults/elder. I'm still not completely happy with it, but it looks better than before in-game.

I also redid a mesh that I created weeks ago before I wiped out my PC and lost it, but it looks NOTHING like before. The first was like the fauxhawk ponytail [hump at the top, thin on sides, and longer], but now it's just . . . longer, but it's something.

Feel free to recolor the MAXIS original textures or create your own. If you want to post the mesh with your own texture on your site, please let me know. I just want to see it. And basically just give me credit.

p.s. Remember, these are only beta, that's why I need testers. They may not be perfect. Thanks to the creators of Simpe, MTS2 mesh tool, Miche, Delphy, WDS Brianna's Tut, everybody, thanks.

Thank you so much for the updated ponytail mesh-it's beautiful.Are we allowed to recolour all the files on it?I ask as I'd really like it in other colours for my game-and want to recolour them-I can't upload anything to the exchange so it's not like I'd be putting the files up for download anywhere really (and I'd not do it unless I had permission anyhow)-unless you want a few recolours posted in this thread maybe-for when/if anyone asks for some?

Hi thank you so much for asking first and sure you can recolor them and post here or on another thread since they're Maxis' textures, go ahead, hehe. I have more free time lately, so I'm going to work on getting them to show on teens as the teens hair is the normal. I'll work on that next and then I'll upload and updated version if all goes well :mrpantha:

Hey all. I'm glad you all enjoy the meshes. The only prob I'm having is converting these meshes to teens. The new version of SimPE is A LOT faster so it took no time to go in experiment, BUT no matter what I do, nothing changes for the teens. It's weird. I tried like 3 or 4 times trying different methods each time and I have no clue what I'm doing wrong. Any suggestions are welcome because i know that people want more variety for the teens and I want to provide it for you all.

Thanks!I've got several colours done-platinum,a more natural auburn sort of colour, blueblack, black, and a couple unnatural colours like hot pink, dark blue, dark green and maroon-I'll upload them on the board tomorrow-either here or on another thread-if I do it on another thread I'll add a link to them here.

I really like both of them. They both look great in the game but the long pull back looks a little weird when you rotate the head and it kinda shakes.

Very nice, well done! :D
