This a gender conversion of the Wild Fire Hairstyle that was released as part of the Store's new Le Cirque Nouveau collection. Why exactly it's a circus hair remains something of a mystery to me, but I choose not to question this too deeply, as it's actually a really snazzy hair.

This is a true gender conversion, not a re-categorization. The mesh has been reshaped and resized to fit lady Sims without clipping, glitching, or other issues. It does not require the male Store mesh to work. This hair appears for ladies ONLY and does not include the male hair.

  • This hair has been reshaped to the adult female head, and will not clip through it or do anything similarly ridiculous.
  • This hair does not require the male version to function, and operates independently of the Store hair.
  • The EF hair pulls textures from the AF hair, resulting in much smaller file sizes. This does mean you must have the adult hair installed for the elder hair to work, however.
  • This hair is properly binned, and can be found in the regular hair section of CAS.
  • This hair has correct bone assignments and all four morph states: fat, fit, thin, and pregnant.
  • The thumbnails in CAS are Maxis-Match, meaning your teen-adult thumbnails display in the typical reddish brown color while the elder thumbnail displays in gray.
  • This hair does not replace any other hair.
  • This hair is available for lady Sims, aged teen-elder.

Known Issues

There is one small graphical glitch I've observed in this hair, which only seems to appear in hairs where the Tip color is much paler than the Base color. It exists in the original hair as well, and despite my best efforts, I wasn't able to get rid of it. It's a non-issue in the vast majority of coloring choices, but you can see it clearly in the attached image titled 'Known Issues'.

Polygon Counts:
3245 polys.
