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.

I was just about to go to WCIF(for accessory-free hair) when I found a link for this download on google. It bugged me that the "Flirty McF" (not to mention the Supernatural hairs) had those ugly flowers on it. Thanks for doing this Buckley.

How was your internet behaving at the time? I have had larger downloads get buggy and have nothing in them when my internet was bad. I would try re-downloading when your internet is working better and faster.

Downloading if my Wi-Fi cooperates. I'm very excited by these. Not only is it a quick easy nab of some great hairs, but it fixes that irritating problem of wanting to use that gorgeous EA hair, with the big obnoxious superhero accoutrement/winter hat/fancy do-dad that makes no sense in everyday where. Now I can put the normal accessory free/lite version on and use the other if I like in the appropriate category! Also hoping it solves some of my "this up-do has no down-do with similar bangs or length" issues...
THANKS!!! <333
-runs off to start putting them in game a few at a time to find the ones she likes w/out bogging down CAS-
P.S. Would love to see similar for the boys. They have some decent hair hidden under some of those hats...

Yay! These are perfect, since I like the style of EA hairs but they aren't my style. Thanks!

Great! My stylist Wally Wonderweasel needed new hair for his picky clients. If this doesn't make 'em happy, it's back to selling donuts.

These are lovely! I don't want to bother you--but, if you, or anyone else, feels so inclined, would anyone be able to tell me what sets/EPs/SPs each of these hairs are based on? I'm curious. I know Bella, Celia, Daisy, and Flora are from the India Inspirations set, but does anyone know some of the others?
Thanks, sorry to be a bother :) these are gorgeous
