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.
This is a hidden afro mesh that was in one of the preview pictures. I found the mesh but the textures were missing so I had to make them. I have included the default maxis textures in the proper bins and have included a dyed blue hair for custom. This hair style only works for young adults - elder.

If someone could make a curly texture for this that would be great.

If you go to recolor this please do so from the adult or young adult age. for some odd reason the mesh will revert to the bald mesh when you make a recolor from elder.

You can do what ever you want to my uploads, use them as a base or whatever, you don't have to credit me, but it would be nice if you did and if you sent me a link to your upload. You may make recolors of my stuff and host them on pay only sites or in donation packs. Please do not take them as they without crediting me.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

It does look like Huey's hair...*sigh* I miss Boondocks. Thanks for this great hair - I don't remember seeing it in any preview pics, but I don't exactly have a photographic memory. Were you the one who converted the dress that came with Family Fun if you bought it from Target at the sims 2 site? If you were, I really appreciate it. I bought FFS at Target just so I could have that dress, but then I found out the system requirements were too high for my computer. Thanks.

Julie =)

PS - I went to your site. Is it just my computer, or are there no pictures? I'd really love to see more of what you have to download.

Oh you are so fantastic for finding this treasure for us. Thank You. I read a post @ the BBS with a maxi worker and the player had asked if there was any more hinden files to be found he answered the search is always there.

Groovy - I'd always seen that mesh in the files and had played around with it a little, but as it was missing textures, never bothered trying to put it into something useful. Thanks for sharing.

Sorry. I am still working on it. I will put it higher up on my list.

Where did you find this mesh? Hopefully you can find that "bunbangs" mesh too, since the textures for that are in the sims08.package from the original game, but there was never a mesh...that I found.

I found the female "round" hair, the "mohawk spike" for teen females, both of which have textures..I think there's another male mesh that Maxis made an update for with the game, because the first version didn't have alphas. (sort of like the braids mesh) There's also a baseball hat with a didn't UV Map and different textures..and probably more but I don't really remember.

I've worked with some of that stuff, converted the spike mesh for all age males and uploaded the round hair for females. That would could've been a little better, but it's good either way. :P

I found it in the sims03.package. Sadly the mesh for the "bunbangs" hairstyle was removed.
#13 Old 22nd May 2006 at 3:23 AM
Found it..Interesting I've had it all along but never noticed it. (I've extracted every single hair GMDC from the sims03.package. ) O.o

Awesome! You're right- it does look like Huey's hair. Maybe I could make an adult sim of him now...

The chicken hat comes with bonus that you get from OFB.
