This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
These are seven children hairs (three male, four female) made available for the other gender in all colours each.

Part 2 is available here.



Skirt-wearing sims are girls, pants-wearing are boys.

These are CASP overrides -- no mesh or textures included, they reference what is already in everyone's game and are thus very lightweight (2-3 kB each). In the zip are separate packages for each hairstyle, please refer to the screenshots to see which is which (Edit -- just noticed I got one of the names wrong, the boy with the red/white robot shirt is wearing PonyMidWavyBangs, not LongStraight). All of these are available for townies as well.


Compatibility:

2015-03-27: Updated for 1.5.139. May or may not work with older games, I can’t test that.

You need 1.0.732.20 or later, otherwise these won't work.


Made with s4pe, HxD. Thanks to Snaitf for basically doing all the thinking for me! =)
All sims are using Helianthea's Super Bland Comic Eyes (defaults).
Hair Style: Maxis-Match
Maxis Flags: Gender Conversions

Thank you for the cute switch-a-roo with the hairs. I really love the male to female child hairs. Sadly, I have to stay away from all the cute stuff, my game crashes too much when I use CC. Makes me wanna holla!

I'm on a Lenovo touch screen laptop. I think my computer is one of those "fancy" jobs to which you were referring. I will get back and report any imaging concerns. Howerver, the artifacts are actually kind of interesting. They are similar to Star Trek, Trill skin patterns, yes? Thanks so much for creating these recolors.

I installed this pack, but when I went into the game a number of the children's hair styles were gone. When I removed the files from my Mod folder, the hair styles returned to normal. I still have not been able to get your hair files to work. Is there an additional file or mod I need to download in order to get your mod to work?

Which hair styles were gone, do you have a before/after comparison (screenshot) you could show me? And what do you mean by "gone": gone from the CAS preview or gone from sims' heads in game or something else entirely?

If the CAS preview seems wonky, try deleting localthumbcache from your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4 folder (that's the cache for the CAS thumbnails, it will be rebult upon restart).

I'm not sure what all the hair files are named and I tried to do a print screen but it just saved it as a blank white picture. By "gone" I mean the hair is no longer an option to select or even see in creation mode. I checked for whether or not the hair exists on sims already in the game but was unable to find the missing hair styles (I looked for the boy's long hair style as an example). When I added this mod it reduced the total number of boy hair styles to 6 (no long hair options at all) and the total number of girl hair styles to 9.

Perhaps the missing hair styles are associated with the files in the mod somehow? Instead of adding additional hair styles it canceled them out?

Well it doesn't in mine. Could it be that you already have another similar mod and they conflict somehow? Because you're talking about "long hair options" (plural) for boys .. in my game, without mods, there is only one.

Also, what is your game version? This is from 1.0.732.20 -- do you have that?

Hi! I have a little problem. I unzipped parts 1 and 2 and placed it in the correct folders. However, the hair options aren't showing up! My game is up to date. Thanks!

Hello plasticbox.

Thank you for these gender hair conversions but there is a problem since GTW I have downloaded the updated versions of the mod but when I choose one of the coversions and then go on to another sims or try to save the household the converted hair reverts to a default hairstyle in the game.

Is it possible to make these conversions as independent meshes and not crossovers and if you could do an adult version of it with some of their hairstyles???

Other than that I am thankful for the replacement furniture they are more useful and practical than EAs default.
I thank you for those mods.

Re. the hair selection not saving correctly, is this a new issue with the May the Fourth patch?
