This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

Have you ever wanted this cute Nightlife toddler hair for other ages? I did! So here it is.


Technical Details:

- Animated: Pigtails & bangs bop around a bit

- Colour-Binned: Red hair in the red bin, etc.

- Family-Linked: Sims keep the hair as they age, sims keep the hair as you change their hair colour.

- De-Customized: Appears in Maxis section of the bin with NL icon instead of custom star.

- Maxis-Linked Textures: The "recolours" don't contain texture files - they're linked to the original Maxis textures for better quality and smaller filesizes.

- Mesh Contains Default-Replacement + Grey Textures: This part's a bit unusual, but the black & red Maxis hair textures had different alphas than the brown & blonde textures. Those alphas made the converted hair look downright bad, so I created default-replacements for the black & red hair using the brown hair's alpha. I also created a grey texture since the toddler hair didn't come with one. Now, why put those in the mesh file? Well... I figured putting them in a separate file would be confusing, and putting them in all 3 sets of "recolours" would use 3 times more space than necessary. So I stuck them in the mesh file to save space and to make sure everyone gets them no matter which hair or bonnet colours they install.

- Complete Set: All 4 hair colours come in all 3 bonnet colours, for a grand total of 12 files + the mesh.

- Compressed with jfade's Compressorizer to reduce filesize. Thanks jfade!

- Black hair required for Elder hair to work

- Nightlife Required (because of the Maxis-linked textures)

- It's my first hair mesh, zomg! I think everything works well, but if you find any problems please let me know.
