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: 18 retextures/recolors of Plicka's long dreadlock mesh for males.

These are all color-binned (except for 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, they are packed in the "alkaloid_plickadreads_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.


Reds: Dark Auburn (with brown eyebrows), Auburn, Ginger, and Strawberry Blonde.
Blonds: Beach Blonde, Ash Blonde, Champagne Blonde and Platinum Blonde.
Browns: Dark Brown, Chocolate Brown, Cool Brown and Light Brown.
Black: Warm Black (a black with subtle brown highlights), and True Black. The True Black could be blacker, but I'm tired so it's not happening.
Custom: Snow White, Olive Drab, LieLocks and Vampire Red (yeah, I know! It's totally unbinned though. :*)

The natural colors all age to various shades of grey. The custom colors all stay the same for elders. Yadda yadda yadda.

Terms of use for my 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 by Louis, the eyebrows are by RenSim, the lipstick is by AtomicSpaceKitty, and the eyes are by myself.

Clothes are by fanseelamb, whose name comes up as "flamboyant" in my spell checker.

The color in the solo portrait is dark auburn.
