This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Here's a hidden hair mesh that only shows up in debug mode: A black beanie, unlocked for your gaming and recoloring pleasure. The difference between this beanie and the other Maxis one, if you can't tell very well, is that it's smaller and thinner. This is the also the kind of beanie that the burglars wear.
There's both a male and female version under custom hair for ages YA-elder, only needs the base game. You can even recolor them as well, just remember to give me credit.


Update: CatOfEvilGenius made some awesome recolors of the male and female beanie, check 'em out!

Oh cool! I disliked the actual beanies you can choose because they're so bulky - I forgot this was even in the game at all. Thanks for making it available. Now my Martin Gore sim can wear his little beanie and not look like he has a gigantic head.

What's debug mode?

Edit: all the same, it's a cute beanie. I think I'm gonna make some recolours!

It allows you to create sims using 'hidden' outfits and hairstyles, such as NPC outfits, like the maids and gardeners, work uniforms etc.

It's also nice to see that someone is willing to extract it for other users

well it's funny you should ask because i do think rod is gay.
i always have. but, you know; i figured if he wanted to tell me he would.
so, yes, definitely, i would say that my buddy rod is a closeted homosexual.
nicky! how could you say that about me?

This is great!

I don't know *why* maxis insists on leaving perfectly good (and sometimes better) meshes completely out of the game. Completely useless. Thanks for fixing their mistake!

Great work!

Err, nnnno. This was hidden in the game and I found and extracted it, that's all I did.

I actually discovered that the other Maxis beanie has disappeared from my game... does anyone know why? I have all the exp packs except BV which I had installed but took away due to game performance.

I like the other black beenie with the little bat and I miss it
