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.
At long-last, I am pleased to bring you the female version of my wildly-successful Cherub hair for males. The mesh is pretty much the same for males as females - I just did a bit of sculpting here and there to give the hairline a bit more feminine look, and of course refit it otherwise to the female head. It's a fun style which looks especially nice on sims with darker skintones.

It is available for all ages: toddler, child, teen, young adult, adult, and elder, with the same colours for all ages (no grey elders!)

I have uploaded the mesh separately from the recolours: make sure you grab the recolours and a mesh file (read below for important info on that!). The contents are labeled so you can delete any recolours you don't want. All shades have fixed brow colours (blonde for the white, all appropriate brows for the natural colours) and the natural shades work genetically, in the correct colour bins.

2900 polygons, 3257 vertices (on the higher side, but within normal/Maxis range).

Which mesh file to download?

If you already have my Cherub hair for males, or are getting it along with this hair, download the file that starts with HMESH that says "Add-On_to_Cherub" in the filename. This uses the same mesh for the child and toddler as the male version, and there's no sense in having duplicate meshes if you don't need them.

If you do not have my Cherub hair for males and are not planning on getting it, download the file that starts with HMESH that includes "Standalone" in the filename. This includes the meshes for the child and toddler version, so this will work properly for all ages even if you have not gotten my Cherub mesh for males.

Updated!

If you have downloaded previously and experienced issue with the teen version on the red recolour, please download the "Red-TeenFixed.rar" file - the file within has the same name as the original, so if you extract it to the same directory, tell it Yes to overwrite the existing file. This file has been updated in the main recolour .rar so if you are downloading for the first time, just get that one.


Please don't comment if you're just going to request something: I don't take requests unless otherwise noted.

Model Credits: The model for this hair is my sim Claudia with a bit different content. She's, um, ugly as a child and absolutely hideous as a toddler... hence the slightly odd angles and lighting on those, trying to minimize the fact that she looked just like Chuckie as a toddler...

Her eyes are by Pinstruck at InSIM, makeup and brows by Helaene, smoothing foundation for Enayla's skintone by alkaloid, additional foundation by Barcelonista, clothing by AllAboutStyle, and her jewelry is unreleased, by me, on Dr Pixel's alpha mesh.

Thanks to:
  • Tiggerypum, for teaching me so much about meshing.
  • Melodie9, for the all ages mhairpgpunk, used to clone this so I could make it work properly for all ages.
  • Wes_h, for the Unimesh plugins for Milkshape, used in the creation of this mesh.
  • Dr Pixel, for all kinds of various bits of useful meshing info that have helped me along the way.
  • Everyone who has contributed to the creation and development of SimPE.
  • MTS2, the rest of the staff, and Delphy, for creating a such a fantastic place to learn and share information, so I could figure out how to do cool stuff like this.

Hi, I love this hair and have been using it since before pets without problems. Just recently (about a month into my install of Seasons) the female adult (black) is defaulting to the long straight maxis hair and the female teen (black) is completely missing & just showing a huge cutaway where the hair should be.

I haven't had a look at the other colours & ages though.

Try redownloading and reinstalling the files from this thread, floppyboo. It's possible something got corrupted in your files. I don't think there's actually anything wrong with my files as they're still showing up fine with me (with all EPs) and they were working fine for you before. New EPs shouldn't have any trouble with these - hair works the same with EPs or without, so I think something's gone wonky with the files on your computer.

I'd appreciate it if you would be so kind as to not call me floppy, ta. Also, I mentioned when I first noticed the problem, not when it actually happened, as I'd been running a vanilla game for most of that month to enable beta testing. I hadn't gotten around to checking all my hairs for problems yet, as I haven't had the time. I found this problem by accident.

I agree that it is possible that the files have become corrupt, but my anti-viral does actually check for that, and it's given my copies of your files the all-clear. Since there has been a problem with other recolours of this hair in this age group, might it not be pertinent to double-check, just to be certain?

Floppy things are so cute though.

The black recolour in teen and adult female work fine. I have checked them and they are functioning properly. Please redownload and reinstall the files - your antivirus program may not check for a partial corruption. One or two bytes off in the part of the file that defines what mesh links to it and you'd get a "missing mesh" effect - blank head or long straight black hair showing up instead of the proper mesh.
