Information (Click for more details):
This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
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 MTS2 - check the sidebar.
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.
A sophisticated bun with carefully-pinned strands that add just a touch of asymmetry, this hair manages to look fanciful without appearing chaotic. It is based on the 'True Romance' hairstyle from the Sims 3 Store,
I didn't particularly care for the level of shine on the original Store texture, so I softened it a bit. This removed the waxiness and evened out some of the shadowing, as well as making the hair look fuller and generally more like hair. However, because I know some do prefer the glossiness, this hair comes in two flavors: Original and Reduced Shine. Original is complete with the original textures and shading packaged with the True Romance hair, though this means it also comes with True Romance's scruffiness as well (see 'Known Issues' for more details). They don't overwrite eachother, so you can put both in your game if you'd like to compare them.
There are a total of four files in the download, an AF and EF file for each version. They are clearly marked, so choose the two that suit you; just remember that the AF file contains the mesh for teen-adult and the EF file contains the mesh for elders, so make sure to grab at least one of each or the style won't appear for all ages.
The control texture is illustrated here, with roots indicated in red, highlights in green, and tips in blue.
Like the Store hair it is based on, this hair has some transparency issues on the front strands. One is a peculiar distortion over the Sim's left (our right) eyebrow, and the other is some stripey-looking distortion on the other face-framing strand. It's most apparent on pale hairs, and barely visible on dark ones. As you can see by the image below, this problem was present on the EA hair as well.
These issues are easiest to see on the Original Shine version, and are much less noticeable on the Reduced Shine version. For comparison, see the Sim pictured below.
This transparency-scruffiness is really only an issue on pale hair, and is virtually invisible on darker hairs and/or the Reduced Shine version. For more examples of the difference between the two versions, see the attached images.This is the only known issue with this hair, and it should not engage in any other tomfoolery.
