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.
Hey Simmers
I have a new hair mesh for your male Sims. It's not perfect but works for me especially from a certain distance.
I created it combining and editing two Maxis hair meshes, I used the Ponytail from the base game for male Sims and some parts from Shorttuckin' for female Sims from the base game again.
The textures are a little bit crunchy and not perfect and the mesh clipps a little bit throughout the animation but not very noticable.
Since this has been a more challenging creation from me, who by the way is far away from being an experienced mesher, I wanted to share it.
Retextures and mesh edits or fixes are always welcomed from my side, so feel free to get crazy with the stuff I upload. If you have any suggestions I'm excited to see what I can do because I'm open to challenges.
This time I also included a picture that shows the hairstyle from a distance which doesn't look too bad. But you can also feel free to share tipps and tricks or criticism that I can try to incorporate or improve.

That's it for this time.
Happy Simming as always

Thanks :D
There you go:
They're by Zalige on tsr. If you would like to have some mm eyes with more detail I can recommend the ones by oepu here on mts.
Lyran Sims also has a lot recolors that look a little bit softer than the original mm eyes. The site is dead unfortunately but if you are interested you can find it through the wayback machine if you take a look into this thread...
Anyways if you go through pretty much the older uploads on mts and tsr you will find a lot mm eyes recolors since people often made only slight changes to the Maxis stuff via bodyshop in the past like a lot recolors. I also have made I guess 3 or 4 mm eye recolors and might upload them in the future in case I can accomplish a whole set. Happy holidays !

Thank you! Too many mens short styles look like K-pop 19 year olds or ladies wigs. Nice to have a short manly style.
