"Pixie" Hair

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.
This is a simple default replacement of the textures from afHairPixie from the base game. I've not modified the mesh on this one, just given it softer, smoother textures, removed the "scratchy" bump mapping, and gave it a specular so it has a dynamic shine that changes with the viewing angle. Because of the way the specular is done, it looks a bit weirdly shiny in CAS, especially on dark colours, but displays fine in-game. I have not altered the control from the original. Textures are modified from those by ILTS.

As this is a default replacement, you should delete your cache files to get this to show properly in-game.


Special thanks to: Inge and Peter for S3PE, Delphy for CTU, Wes for Q-Mesh, Lunararc for the model, Nina, and ILTS for the textures.
Hair Style: Shiny/Realistic
Maxis Flags: Default Replacements

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
