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: 10 retextures/recolors of Arcia's new swoop mesh for Young Adult to Elder males. Only 10 this time! These are my very first textures from scratch, and I'm really happy with how they turned out.

These are all color-binned, 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, they are packed in the "alkaloid_hair_sideswept_ALLCOLORS" file. If you want to pick and choose, all of the individual hair files have also been packed separately. The colors are listed in the file names. The mesh has also been included in this upload, as per Arcia's terms of use and for the convenience of those without accounts at Insimenator. The mesh is in a package by itself, so if you didn't already get it from Arcia, you need to download the mesh no matter which hair color files you choose.

I checked off the Seasons box since it was cloned from a Seasons style, but I was able to make my recolors in Legacy BodyShop with no trouble. I did not, however, playtest these files in a game configuration without Seasons. Caveat downloadinator.

ETA: These are usable by everyone! :D


Reds: Auburn, Ginger, and Strawberry Blonde.
Blonds: Beach Blonde, Ash Blonde and Platinum Blonde.
Browns: Dark Brown, Chocolate Brown, and Cool Brown.
Black: Warm Black (a black with subtle brown highlights).

The red and blond colors age to white for elders, and the brown and black colors age to silver grey for elders.

Terms of use for these textures/recolors: These files may be redistributed via shared sims, so long as those sims are available in the free section of any site, and I am credited with a link back to my profile on this site. You may not charge money or a membership fee for my files: this includes "donation files" on an otherwise free site, and sites where my files would only periodically be free.

These files may also be shared via Neighborhood 99, so long as I am properly credited.

You may recolor these files so long as your derivative works are only posted on free sites as described in the previous paragraph.

Additional Credits:
The skintone is an unreleased one by myself. The eyes are by myself, the eyebrows are by RenSim, the eyeliner is by AtomicSpaceKitty, and the foundation is by myself. The preview ad has different credits, but I can't be arsed to figure out what those may be.

Clothes are by fanseelamb.
