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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Hey I finally learnt how to animate! It isn't such a great animation, but at least it moves, haha. All you have to know is in the images, so check them:

Hope you like it, and hey, hit the thanks button!

Faces: 1990
Vertices: 1464

Thanks to HP who helped me with the mesh

i don't want to be picky, because i can't even do a mesh...
but when i tried the hair out in game yesterday i saw that there's a big gap in the neck...can you maybe fix that?
that would be great, because mesh and textures look so great....

This is an awesome ponytail! I've been regretting not having one like it. And the animation? I am spoiled.

In my game, there's a gap between the hair and where it meets the nape--just a thin one, and just a crescent in that one area--the front and sides are fine. I'm using grown-up Meadow Thayer. (You can always say it's all her fault.) I only downloaded the bangs-free one, so I don't know if the other one has that.

It's a minor detail, though it is one I thought you might want mentioned.

Edit: Whoops! Didn't check page two.

It's ok guys, I do know there is a gap there, but I followed a tut about it here at MTS and it didn't go ok, anyway I am investigating, lol.

WOW! It's great! I love ponitails, and this is so real, at the back, it looks with movement! The lastest meshes aren't animated? Where do you learn to do this?

jenwear: my hairs will never work for YA since I don't have university, so sorry.
Daxx: Nope, the latest mesh wasn't animated. Mmm I really didn't "learn". I just followed a little advice from HP: study maxis meshes

panjarat, agustin has already explained he doesn't own uni so that's why it doesn't work on yf and he is looking into the gap issue. please read other comments to see if your problem has already been solved before you post.

I downloaded the mesh and the recolors with the fringe, and it doesn't seem to work all that well in my game. I'll try to post a picture soon if I can.

I'm pretty sure if you modify the adult property set file to be both YA and adult, you can use this mesh on young adults... I used wardrobe wrangler to do this... I just deleted the YA age group file, then changed the adult file to both YA and adult. And now my young adults look perfectly fantastic with this mesh! If you use SimPE you should be able to click on property set, select the afhairxxxx file and change the age from 0x00000008 to 0x00000048 to enable both adults and young adults. Delete the property set that was originally for YAs (age = 0x00000040). Yippee!!
