ATTENTION ATTENTION
NOT ALL HAIRSTYLES WHICH ARE SHOWN IN THE MOD IMAGES ARE AVAILABLE!!
At the moment includes the mod ONLY THE HAIRSTYLES OF:
AGUSTIN/ BUTTERFLYSIMS/ CAZY/ and few of NEW SEA and NOUK!!!

The rest will follow with the next updates!
!







LET THE DEVIL CATCH YOU BUT BY A SINGLE HAIR, AND YOU ARE HIS FOREVER!

~~Lessing~~







PRELIMINARY REMARKS
None of the hair meshes and textures I have used are my work!
The only thing I have done, are the ports for Dragon Age and some re-textures or a new uv-mapping for a few hairstyles.
All credits for the meshes and the textures go to their original "The Sims" artists who were so kind and
gave me their permission or have an open policy which allows ports.

Thank you so much ... without you, this mod wouldn't have been possible!




DESCRIPTION
These are just some nice, simple hairstyles which I have converted for practice.
Most of the hairstyles have a high polygon count but there are some with low.

You will get with the pack: long, short, straight, curly, wavy hair
and as far as I know, it's the only hairpack with some Afro- and Rasta styles.
Some hairstyles are lore friendly - some not!
Some hairstyles have an extreme clipping - others not!
Some have an accessory - some not!
There aren't many male hairstyles.
No, I don’t hate men, but I wasn’t satisfied with the offer from the designers.

If you have problems with the installation - drop a note and I will try to help you. Hair you go! :)







INSTALLATION

After downloading the mod, extract the zip file and put the folder in your override folder.
The override folder is usually found here: "My DocumentsBiowareDragon AgePackagesCoreOverride" although the location of yours might differ.
Use a compiler such as the CharGenMorph Compiler by TerraEx to merge the "chargenmorphcfg.xml".
Alternatively you can edit the chargenmorph file yourself
by copying the lines from the "Look Hair!" chargenmorph file and
pasting them under the corresponding section headings in your original one.

IMPORTANT!
There should be only ONE chargenmorph file in your override after compiling. If you have more than one, it won’t work!!






DEINSTALLATION
Just throw the folder in your recycling bin and delete the edited lines from the Chargenmorph file!






KNOWING ISSUES
Not all of the long hairstyles of this mod are perfectly rigged.
If this bothers you too much you shouldn't use the long hairstyles!!

Clipping with the character’s armour and body will occur with some hairstyles. That’s the price for having long hair!
Clipping could also occur with the character’s ears and face.

Some of the ButterflySims hair have a broad parting. With some hair colours the partings are white and
you have to choose another colour or you could edit your mor.file!

Glitches of the earrings can be occur.

With some of the hairstyles you will get a light blue shine in the ear area.

Some hairstyles for the elves will only fit well with the bigger elf ears.




TIPS

The choice of hair colour can make a big difference in the outcome of the hair’s appearance!

If you have white lines in your hair, you can do this:
You need the toolset or the gff4 editor to open the mor.file, then scroll to MORPH_TINTFILENAMES and change the value in line 11
to the stubble color you want.
For example, if you are using hair color pt_har_bk3, then change the stubble color to pt_stb_bk3, then save.

More infos in the comments of Pineappletree’s Vibrant Colors mod.

Some of the hairstyles are with earrings! You have to make little tweaks,
e.g change size of ears etc. that they will fit!

If you want to change your hair and appearance after you have started a new game,
you can use the Change your hero hair and face mod. It's a very useful mod!



CREDITS
None of these meshes and textures are my work!
They are the work of the following wonderful "The Sims" creators:




All credits for the "Accessories" go to their fabulous "The Sims" designer:

Lorandia:
for her Feather-, Snake- and Pearl earrings.

NewSea Sims
:
for her Flower and and her Feathers for the hair.

Nouk
:
for her Hoops and Headband.

Thank you very much to these people for their permission!
