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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

Here I go again with a new thing This one was done in between moving houses and getting a promotion so it took waaaay longer than it needed lol. Why "Coldheart"? If you manage to figure out, PM me
Either way, if you'd like to retexture or convert this over to TS4 please go ahead - I only ask to credit me for the original mesh and maybe drop me a link so I can have a look Comments and thanks are welcome!

Basic information:

- Hair for female Sims, teen to elder.
- Can be found in CAS/Hair section.
- Available for clothing categories and is enabled for randoms.
- 2 version available: EA Highlights and Shine Highlights (see pictures). You can have both at the same time.
- Morph states and breast slider compatible.
- Low polygon count compared to other custom hair meshes, good for your loading times.
- Custom thumbnails included.

Known issues:

Due to how the transparency works in Sims 3, some minor issues can be found when using the 3D Eyelashes mod. Please see the pictures.

Polygon Counts:
LOD1 and LOD0: 7738

LOD2: 3836

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.
