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.


For the Natural Redhead Project: 20 recolors/alpha edits of XMSims' hair mesh #37. I know Flora also did a white, but if you export the image files, you will see that I really did a recolor. The alpha edit basically consisted of taking the back length up from waist-length to shoulderblade-length.

These are all color-binned (except custom colors), made with Legacy BodyShop, and grouped in the same family (which means the mesh doesn't "drop" if you switch hair colors).

If you want to download all the colors in one go, choose the "alkaloid_hair_xmmesh37_ALLCOLORS.rar" file. It's the one with a Q-Express link. If you want to pick and choose, all of the colors have also been packaged individually.


Click on image for full version:

Reds: Dark Auburn (with brown eyebrows), Auburn, Titian Red, Ginger, and Strawberry Blonde.
Blonds: Dark Ash Blonde, Beach Blonde, Ash Blonde, Champagne Blonde and Platinum Blonde.
Browns: Dark Brown, Chocolate Brown, Cool Brown and Light Brown.
Blacks: Warm Black (a black with subtle brown highlights) and True Black.
Custom: Olive Drab, Violet, White and Black/Fuschia.

Please don't ask me to remember precisely which grey goes with which natural color. I know I did a white, a silver grey, and a middling warm grey. They roughly correspond to how light or dark the original hair color was. I also did a steel grey for the True Black elder color.

White and Olive Drab have the same color for all ages. White has Blonde eyebrows, and Olive Drab has brown eyebrows.

The Violet color is Ash Blonde for toddlers and children, and is a vaguely lavenderish grey for elders - sort of like those older ladies that have been hitting the Silver Fox a little too hard.

The Black/Fuschia color is Warm Black for toddlers and childen, and is very obviously dyed True Black for elders.

You may recolor these files and/or use the alpha so long as your derivative works are only posted on free sites as described in the previous paragraph. Additionally, these files are subject to XMSims' recolor policies.

Additional Credits:
The skintone is an unreleased one by myself. The eyes are by myself, the eye makeup is by Helaene, and the lip color is by Rensim. The eyebrows are the Rensim default replacements. The model in the preview ad is using an Enayla skintone, and lipstick by Helaene.

Clothes are by Maxis.
