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 everyone! First I want to thank Wes_h, Delphy, Quaxi and all MTS staff, for making this possible... Also want to thank all the beta testers and our wonderful community for all the help provided, wonderful tutorials and great conversations....

I decided to make some wizard hats as my next project to go with my medieval sims... But then i got online and saw a request of exactly what i was going to do LOL.. Its funny that this happened, because it hurried me up even more...
I present you my latest creation.. the wizard hats for males, availble for children, teens, adults, young adults, and elders... I am going to do the females this weekend hopefully... These hats are whole new meshes and wont replace anything in your game.

The hat will be gone when they are wearing PJ's, Swimmwear, Underwear, and workout clothes (not sure about this one?).

*If you find a bug, please let me know*

You all have permission to recolor/redistribute but please "do not" without giving the proper credits AND always letting me know (by adding the link here)!

some basic rules:
- Do not include the mesh file
- Your post must contain:
*The NAME of the mesh;
*A link to this thread.

**Please DON'T post these on the exchange, simply because i dont know if hair works the same way as outfits, meaning i dont know if the mesh will be uploaded together, even if its not, don't upload to the official website**

for more questions, please check:

You MUST have both the and in order for it to work
Accessory Type: Hats
Age: Child Teen Young Adult Adult Elder
Gender: Male

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

i tried to make gandalf from lord of the rings... but then i realised that the beards do not work i think it has somthing to do with the hat because when i change the hair type the beard appears strange... just thought you might like to know xxxxx

Hmmm, this is weird...
I can normally put beards together with the hats, as you can see in the picture, the old one has a beard... I will have a look into this... is anyone else having this problem too?

I did a recolor for Rincewind the Wizard's hat and robes from the Terry Pratchett novels.

I don't have any control over what TSR does, and nowhere else to put it except on my Geocities site. If I get too much traffic there, I may have to take it off because they charge for bandwidth use over your monthly allotment.

OK, really stupid newbie-esque question. Can we just attach the files here or do we have to link to them elsewhere?

JosephTheSim2k5, you are right, the beards wont show up in bodyshop for me either when used together with my hat... Anyways, the good news is that in CAS and gameplay, they DO show up together... which is a pain, because you would have to go inside the game everytime you wanted to showcase your recolors or sims with my hats... If anyone knows how to fix that i would be greatful, because i have no idea on what to do about this... I am sorry it went this bad...

EmilyH, you could try to email TSR asking if they could remain for free... but if you "really want to do it" no matter what their answer will be;; go ahead... just please follow the basic rules.. add a link to it here and do not include my mesh together with your recolor... but really;; you could always post them here, all you would have to do is to upload them via the Downloads System... because i dont really see the point of adding a pay recolor of which everyone would have to come here to get the mesh for free (since i don't allow to include the mesh together with the recolors)...

- Do not include the mesh file
- together with your recolor, please include:
*The NAME of the mesh (not the mesh itself);
*A link to this thread.

If we can attach sims 2 package files here (and it looks like we can), I won't upload them to TSR. I respect your wish that they remain free.

Thank you I admire your decision... To post recolors here at modthesims2 all you have to do is to go to this forum:
and find a sub-forum that you think it will fit best.. then start a new thread on it including your files as attatchments... they will require aproval from the MTS2 staff, and sooner or later your recolor will be availble for everyone to get it just dont forget to add a link here so that we will know.. sorry if i sound repetitive...
#23 Old 10th Apr 2005 at 9:56 PM
shame about the beards but it doesn't put even a lil 'dent' in the meshes reputation thanks its fantastic xxxxxx

There is a problem with the unzipping files

anglesims2, i don't see any problem unzipping... I downloaded them and i see that i can unzip them myself, and people here are also having no problem that i know of, since they already tried them... maybe you should redownload it, it could have happened if you suddently lost connection in the middle of the downloading process, and this could have caused a bad file.. i sugest to try to redownload..

I just finished making a long beard for wizards that i will be uploading soon, and this seems to fix the problems of the beards not showing up together with the hat in bodyshop, now every single beard including my new one show together with the hat both in bodyshop and in CAS... however there are still some bugs in the beard that i have to fix before sending, i hope i get them done soon to release together with the wizard long coat...
