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.


The second part of my more-decent-hair-for-townies project. As I mentioned in the first upload, I dislike using high poly CC hair meshes on all the random sims that populate my worlds, so I went through several of EA's store and expansion pack hairstyles and removed the clunky accessories, redid the textures, and made a few other fix-up type changes (such as resizing them, correcting bad mapping, fixing bone assignments, and so on).

These hairstyles are for teen, young adult, adult, and elder females. They appear in the everyday, formalwear, sleepwear, swimwear, athletic, career, outerwear, and naked categories and are set to valid for maternity and valid for random. The styles that have a recolorable accessory can be found in the hat section of the catalog. They are NOT default replacements, nor do you need the original version for them to work. Furthermore, these hairs have:
  • Proper mesh tangents (so no weird shine in CAS).
  • Reduced lower LODs.
  • Fat morphs when needed.
  • Smooth and accurate bone assignments.
  • Scalp and face textures (on most of them).
  • Normal maps.
  • New diffuse and specular textures with Anubis' EA highlights for the control.
  • Custom thumbnails for easy identification.
Finally, both the Flora and Norma hairstyles have two versions, but you can have both in game at the same time. On Flora, version one is with the veil while version two is without, and on Norma version one is with the small side braid while version two is without. I couldn't decide between those variations so I just made both, but as with all of these feel free to pick and choose the one(s) you want. =)

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.

Is it possible to know whether these came from the Store, or a specific expansion?

(Fantastic job, by the way!)

The hair with accessories worked perfectly, but the hair without accessories kept glitching and disappearing. But they look great

I love that you fixed these hair styles. I was wondering if you were going to fix up some of the mens hair styles as well sometime in the near future?

These hairstyles are incredible!!! I wanted to know though if you could make them individual files so that you can pick and choose which hairs you wanted. Great work, nevertheless!

They are in separate package files. You just have to download the .rar and open it.

Thanks so much for creating these looks! I love how refined they are while still blending with EA's look. I'm actually using a few on my Simmies and updated a few townies. With so many styles in both your packs, there's enough to go around without crashing my game!
