I hope you're feeling patient, because there are a lot of files here, and it's taken me all week just to set this post up.

I also hope that you're sick to death of EAxis hairs and would like some default replacement hair files! Wooo!

These are set up as single-hair replacement packages, which should allow you to avoid conflicts with hair-hiding hacks, or possibly allow you to mix and match default hair replacements from different creators.

Before making these, I went around to a couple different computers and picked out the colors that were the most consistent, and the most believable with a variety of different skintones. Not every hair color looks good with every skintone, but that's the way life is so I'm really not worried about it.

Beyond that, I focused more on capturing the feel of a head of hair over making sure you can see every last strand. It's the way I like it, and if you also like it, that's great. If you don't, well, I'm not going to make things I don't want for myself.

Extra-huge thanks and smooches to Nouk, Seomi, Louis, Numenor, and the SimPE team. I could not have done this without you and your contributions to the Sims community.

P.S. These are for The Natural Redhead Project!

Terms of use:

No EA exchange, no TSR, no Pandora Sims, no paysites, and no use of these files or any derivative works for any profit-making activities whatsoever. Anything you make from something I made for The Sims has to be 100% free, period.

You may export these hairs for non-default versions of the hairs, and redistribute them on permitted free sites with a credit. (Although I would greatly appreciate it if you checked to see if I made a non-default version of the hair first).

You may recolor and/or alpha-edit my textures and use them on any mesh of your choosing, and redistribute them on permitted free sites with a credit.

You may use these files as the base for your own default replacement packages. See above for the ToU for reuse of my textures.

You may use these files for screenshots and storytelling on any site, regardless of content.

You may share these files on Neighborhood 99 or any other free file-sharing forums.

ETA: UPDATES! So I got a new monitor, and it messed up my hairs, specifically the browns and blacks that I made in the few months before I replaced my monitor. I tried fiddling with my settings to make everything look the way it used to look to me, but the last few recolors just wouldn't cooperate, which means I'm slowly going through and fixing everything (in roughly the order in which they annoy me). Also, since I only make content I want for myself, I am no longer supporting the out-of-date files. When they're gone, they're gone.
