Posh bob: Cute ancient mesh retextured

This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text 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.
I recently rediscovered this hair mesh from the Simmillion Homes Yahoo group and while I thought the mesh (though not animated, though I'm generally not fussy with that sort of thing) was cute, the textures- mostly, the heinous blond- were not. So I slapped Pooklet's edit of Nouk's textures on to it, and I think it's an improvement. Given that this is an old mesh, the mapping is pretty basic and as such these textures are stretched somewhat. In my opinion, they kind of look a little Maxis-matchy- in a good way.

The hair comes in 7 colours- black, dark brown, light brown, blond, dark red, red and one grey for the grannies. The hair is only available for teens, young adults, adults and elders. All other ages have been removed. The mesh is included in the .rar with permission from the original creator.

The files are:

- Compressed
- Clearly named
- Binned and familied

The original creator mentions on their site that Nightlife may be required. So I have indicated so as a precaution.

Edit: I have added a dark red version as per a request. This is binned but not familied with the other colours. I've included it as a separate rar. It is not included with all of the other colours, so if you want it, you'll need to download it separately.

Enjoy!

I clicked on the download file at the link, and rapidshare couldn't find the file. Could you get permission to load the mesh?

You mean the gap in the hairline? Comes with the original mesh and nothing I can do, unfortunately. It's only really prominent with the blond, I think.

So true, and add to that: hard to find meshes that also suit grannies and not just teens and YA/adults. I love this mesh for them. :D

Thank you for this hair. I saw it on a model and I have been trying to find someone to download this from but no one had it. The yahoo site had a dead link. Unfortunately, the site is gone now but I am glad this hair survived.

And I am thankful you shared it.

Weird, nobody else has reported a problem, and they (obviously) work fine in my game. The mesh creator mentioned that Nightlife may be required, maybe that's the issue? I hope you get it sorted.
