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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Please GIVE THANKS and FAVORITE if you like! And also let me know if you have any problems. Thank you!

UPDATE 2014-01-27: I fixed a few things.
  • On the left side of the forehead, you could still see the braids. I forgot to edit both face and scalp diffuse for my edit; so that is now fixed
  • I fixed the crashing problem. It was because of the male and child packages. When I packaged them in DABOOBS, I used the instance of the from the adult textures. So basically, if you don't have the adult hair package with the male and or child package, the game would crash. I have fixed this by packaging them together.
  • I added a new control.

Hello Everyone!

First, let me say a big THANK YOU to robokitty (aka Kittyklan) for creating her Half-Braided Fro. I fell IN LOVE with this hair immediately! However, I wished that it was a full fro. I was going to ask if it were possible for her to do a full fro, but she was busy. So, I asked for permission to make a full hair, and several months later, I got a yes! I was thrilled!

What I did was copy and edit planes from the right side of the fro, to the left. I had to do this about a thousand times because I kept messing up. I finally got it right. I also got rid of the cornrows.

This is a new mesh. You can have both the original half-braided hair and my mesh in your game at the same time (if you game can handle it).
I kept robokitty's textures and control, but I am using Anubis's hair colors (link below).

Enough talking, here is the hair. And yes, I know. This is a big hair.
And yes, again, the nose. Nothing i can do about it.

I will do smaller versions soon.


You can find this in "Hair" in Create-a-Sim (CAS)
Total Polycount: 18625
Base Game Compatible
Categories: Everyday, Formal, Sleep, Athletic, Swim, Outdoor, Naked, Maternity, & Career
Gender: Both Male & Female
Age: Child - Elder
Channels: 4 Channels, but only 3 Channels appear visible. The Base and Highlight Channels "blend". It was like that in the original textures.
Textures: I didn't change the textures from the original package, so it is still the same.

I SERIOUSLY recommend (completely optional) downloading Le Pallette ~ Hair Colors by Anubis360. All of the color channels perfectly match the hair. You can also use any other hair colors you wish.

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
