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 Nov8: Fixed an issue that occured when the sims quality in the graphical settings were not set to "very high" and the camera was a bit further away from the sim (reason was a issue in mesh LOD1,2 & 3).

Update Nov3: now, the hair is hat compatible

Update Nov2: i removed the edge in the middle of the nape


This is a mesh-edit of the flattop hair. It comes in 14 colors and is available for teen-elder males.

Package1:
smith04_ymHair_LowerFlatTop.package
contains the hair mesh and the black color

Package2:
smith04_ymHair_LowerFlatTop_colors.package
contains 8 additional colors - 3 x brown, 2 x blonde, grey, white and black saltn pepper

Package3:
smith04_ymHair_LowerFlatTop_colors2.package
contains 5 additional colorful colors - 2 x blue, pink, red and green


Hope you like it!

Excellent work! I was hoping someone would make it lower and you did. Thank you! Looks so much better.
I also second above question about your lovely sim model and if he is available for download?

you know... if there was a ben kingsley contest, you'd win hands down. I suggest you make a "the Manchurian" sim out of that one... just need topknot hair and a few Asian themed robes... yeah...

Thank you so much for uploading him!

I'm loving this one. Great-looking mod and long overdue, but I found that after a time of using it that it begins to distort the sim I'm using it on with a thick line that comes down from his head and over his face (almost like the weird sims babies when TS4 first came out). Can you do anything about that?

Can anyone confirm this problem? I can not see any distortion in my game. I would like to help, but I do not know how.

I'm actually getting the same thing. It's like a line dropping from his head and dangling like stretchy cheese or something.

@Joewig and @omega86, can you upload a picture that shows the issue? Maybe it helps me to find the reason.

I wasn't going to say anything at first, because I knew that some of the issues I had with certain mods were because I hadn't gone through the update yet. But it still exists after the pool update.

This is it. Sometimes it goes away, but it tends to stay around most of the game. Please fix this. Love this mod.

I think you mean 'The Mandarin'. To me the sim looks more like Liam Neeson but either way he's very cool.
