This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Whenever I do pooklet recolors, I tend to end up in a zone and do a bunch all at once. This one I did along with two others back in April, but it's been sitting in my projects folder waiting to get uploaded. Which is a shame because I think it came out quite nicely, so it's high time I upload it Hopefully you guys like it too!

Pooklet scheme
As usual I have made this in the Pooklet colors I use.

Family 1: Dynamite, Depth Charge, Incendiary, Explosive
Family 2: Land Mine, Brisance, Volatile, Pyrotechnic

If anyone really wants the other pooklet colors, you are welcome to request them and when I have time I'll make them for you.

Technical information
- For females
- For ages teen-adult
- Requires mesh 8079 by peggyzone (Included)
- Binned
- Family'd
- Available in all clothing-categories
- Mesh is 14,206 poly (WARNING! HIGH POLY! READ BELOW)
- Files are clearly named and have tooltips with the filename, so you should be able to pick and choose easily

Mesh information
Polycount is 14,206. VERY HIGH POLY For more information about polycounts and why they matter, see this article at the Sims Wiki. If you experience lag, you should probably not use this hair as it will strain your computer.

Due to peggy's site no longer being available, I have uploaded the mesh to this thread despite her policy against doing so. If she ever returns, I will remove the mesh and link to her site instead.

The mesh is called Peggy_8079_Fh120108_Pegy097_mesh.package. The original mesh by peggy did not have the "Peggy_8079_"-part, I added that because I find her file naming most confusing.

- Pooklet for the lovely pooklet hair colors
- Iakoa for the GIMP curves I used to create this
- Peggy for the lovely mesh

Programs used
- Bodyshop
- MS Paint
- CatOfEvilGenius' tooltip adder (Found here. I highly recommend it, very useful tool)

Model content: Green crop top, White crop top

What does family'd mean?
Family means that if your Sim has a hairstyle, and you switch from one haircolor to another, the game remembers the hairstyle and your Sim wears the same one but in the new color. It also means that when a Sim ages up, it'll keep the same hairstyle (if that age group is available).

What does pooklet'd mean?
Pooklet was a creator who created a set color scheme for hairstyles. Pooklet'd means that the recolors have been done in the pooklet color scheme, and will match other recolors that are pooklet. They are great if you want your Sims to change their hairstyle without magically changing the shade of their hair.

What is polycount and why does it matter?
See this great article on the Wiki for more information.

I unfortunately can't download this due to the high polycount, but I thought I'd let you know it's super cute and I wish I could download it!! :)

Yeah :/ I'm really sorry about the poly-count, I'm rubbish at checking before I recolor. It's only when I get ready to upload I realize it's yet another insane high poly one. I'm going to really try to do less stupidly high poly hairs, it's no fun sharing things most people can't use. I appreciate you taking the time to comment despite that, thank you!

Thank you gummitutt. I do not mind some high poly-count and I do think this one is worth it.

Wonderful hair colors. Thank you for using Pooklet. That happens to be the only colors I put in my game. :)

The hairs are beautiful!
On a side note, do you mind me asking what skin tone your model is wearing? It looks perfect with the hair and I'd love to have it in my game if it's available somewhere.

@Caliby The skins are teru_k's Simple Skins (found here on MTS). The dark skin model has skin number 6, and the light skin model has skin number 3. I use the default replacements she made, but the skins come in non-default form too.

If you have questions on how to use SimPE or WW, you're welcome to PM me.
