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.
Here's a little age conversion of my fave male hair that came with OFB. Now kids and tots can wear it too! Yay!

  • Binned: Red is in the red bin, black is in the black bin, etc.

  • Maxis-Linked: The 4 Maxis colours don't include any textures. They're linked to the Maxis textures instead, for smaller files and better quality. The 2 bonus browns do have textures.

  • De-Customized: The 4 Maxis colours have the OFB logo instead of a CC star. The 2 bonus browns have the CC star.

  • Toddler/Child + Teen Fix Only: No extra meshes or recolours here. You just get the toddler & child hair which blend seamlessly with the Maxis teen/adult/elder hair. I also made a little default-replacement to fix a hole in the teen forehead, but you shouldn't really notice that. I is nitpicky.

  • Family Linked: Flip between colours and ages without reverting to another mesh.

  • Polygon Count: 804

  • Compressed with jfade's Compressorizer to reduce filesize. Thanks jfade!

  • OFB Required

Known Issue:
When sims have a birthday in-game, this hair reverts to another Maxis hair. It's probably some sort of family number conflict. It works fine in CAS and Bodyshop though, and to be honest, I always give my sims a makeover on their birthday anyway. You probably do too. So I opted to just leave it alone instead of fiddling with frustration.

Recolours Available:
I had previously recoloured this hair twice. Now I've updated those recolours for the kiddos. You can get them here:

Additional Credits:
Big thanks to the creators of SimPE, Milkshape, and various plugins and tutorials. Particularly Wes, Tig, HP, and Inge. And of course to everyone who keeps MTS2 running and makes it such a great place to learn and share.
