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.

This was another request. I had thought there were plenty of elf ears out there, but apparently there are some strict recoloring policies on some of them, and the only other mesh I've found here are much longer than these. So here ya go.

These are for child-elder, male and female. They will stay on all the time. There are four colors to match the four Maxis default skintones. I don't know what the actual names of all the skintones are, so I've called them Pale, Medium, Tan, and Dark. And if you can't figure out which is which, I'm not telling you. If I'm recalling the aging process correctly though (it's been so long since I've actually played), elder skintones are slightly different from younger ages' skintones. So the ears may not match exactly for elders. They don't match quite exactly now, but I did the best I could do.

The texture map of my ears is the exact same as Maxis ears. You can literally use the face image of the skintone you want to use - which is what I did - but for some reason accessories come up darker than skin and clothes, so you do have to do some adjustment to the brightness/contrast.

Disclaimer: Recolor at will, but do not redistribute the mesh without permission. All recolors should link back to this post. Do not upload to any paysites, and do not upload to the Exchange. I know they're pretty much nonexistant, but feel free to use any color I include with my meshes in your own creations, as long as credit is given and a link to the mesh is provided. HOWEVER, this doesn't apply to anyone else's recolors of my meshes. Those are the property of the respective creators, and you have to ask them about redistribution. All content is by Maxis or me.
