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.
I want to make it very clear to everyone that I'm in no way criticising the work melodie9 did on her hair packages! She did a fantastic job of meshing and colourbinning, much better than many creators do. I just wanted to take it one step further and blend her hairs in perfectly with the EA hairs.

This is one in a series of add-on packages where Maxis were too lazy to do the hair for all ages. Melodie9 converted the meshes, I tinkered, fiddled and screwed around, linking the hairs to the existing ages.
If you are using default replacement textures (such as the natural redhead project) these add-ons will adopt those textures.

I've used the blond hair in my screenshots only because it shows up better in pictures: the black, brown and red hairs are included in the same package, no worries.

Some of the hairs have odd names. That's Maxis' fault, not mine:

EP0_bald.zip - This contains male and female in the same set. Toddlers already have one bald hair set, but I had to add another to allow toddlers to grow up into bald children, and from there to bald teens, and so on.

EP0_Dreadlocklong.zip


EP0_frontalwave.zip


EP0_Messy.zip


EP0_shortmessy.zip


EP0_Shortsimple.zip


Meshes included with permission.

Important: Do not delete the files from inside the game (CAS/Bodyshop), it might corrupt your game files. If you want to remove the files from your game, delete the packages manually from your downloads folder.

Polygon Counts:
Same as Maxis.

Additional Credits:
melodie9 who does the job EA was too lazy to do.
jfade, who doesn't get half the recognition he deserves for his programs, and his Wardrobe Wrangler, which saves me a lot of time and tedious copy and paste work.
