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 Sims 2 conversion for all male ages (toddler to elder)

There is four recolorables channels: base, roots, highlights and tips

Polygon Counts:
Melodie9Achilles-AM: 928
Melodie9Achilles-CM: 928
Melodie9Achilles-PM: 928

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

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
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.

I've downloaded this into my game, and it works fine. I like it a lot. I wanted a style similar to this for my male sims, but there wasn't really any I could find. =)

I'm so glad you're working on sims 3. You were always one of my favourite maxis-match creators from sims 2. Making the maxis stuff work like it should in the first place.

Works fine. The hair is a bit too shiny for my tastes(Even with editing the hair colour.), but it's a good style nonetheless.

I am going to test this out, but just from the pictures you posted I noticed something...the roots at the forehead don't seem to be colored like the roots at the top of the head. That looks odd to me. Thanks for all your work on this though.
