If anything begs for custom content, it's the new body hair that arrived with the 1.22 / Generations patch. This little program makes it easy to package custom body hair textures.

Just enter a name for your hair, select the body location, and import your textures. You only need two: an overlay and a specular. Optionally you can adjust the opacity of the hair and the sorting order in CAS. By default it will be enabled for males only, teen through elder, but you can change that if you wish.

  • Games must have the 1.22 base game patch or higher to use body hair. You don't have to have the Generations expansion.
  • It's a bad idea to name your hair 'My hair' or 'New hair', or heaven forbid, just 'Hair'. The name must be unique or the identifiers for your hair may conflict with someone else's who also needs to be more imaginative. The best way is to combine your name with a descriptive name for the hair.
  • The options to enable hair packages for teens and females is in anticipation that core and script modders will enable body hair for them in CAS in the near future. I've updated XCAS to enable the body hair screen for teens and females as of 6/12/2011.
  • Only runs on Windows.

Unzip Hairinator.exe and salflibc.dll into the same folder.

Yes, already! Update to allow enabling/disabling of "Valid for Random" and "Valid for Maternity".

This is an update only to the underlying platform - salflib.dll. It improves file selection performance when running on Windows 7 so that you should be able to select significantly more files before it freezes for a minute or so.
