1  The Pirate Ship / ARR! / Re: Free Content Pwns Paysite Crap on: 2008 August 13, 12:57:09
And when my computer with still frankenstiened together, the hair looked decent. Rather fake, but I could deal with. Well now with my newer graphics card, I have been debating on deleting it just because now I can see parts where the mesh goes different ways, and how the texture doesn't line all the way up with the mesh.

Oh, hon, delete the damn thing! Honestly, there are way better hairs out there. I just did a little bit of searching and came up with these - I'm sure you could find more if you dug around a bit.

For the sake of a side-by-side (or top-to-bottom?), here's Chaz's mess.

*snip*

Here's a similar one by Helga. (I'm in love with this hair by the way.)

One from enriquemt0 at MTS2

And a couple of pay-mesh retextures which I'm only going to link to since they don't really qualify as free CC. (You might need to be signed into the forums to see them.)

MMM Thank you! Quite lovely meshes, I love Helga's but I can't find a decent red recolor of that hair  Cry Because orange doesn't qualify as red to me.....

I've been meaning to actually learn how to texture hair and fix chaz's mess.... but I have a lot of things I have been meaning to do and haven't done Tongue

There's a Nouk retexture of that mesh at Sims2 Supernova.  http://www.sims2supernova.com/showthread.php?t=1610.  I haven't seen many recolours of that mesh, which is a shame because I love it.

I love this thread!  It's nice to see bad pay crap next to free stuff.

Those are so gorgeous that I wish that I was more into Anime sims.  I really want to download them.

I wanted curly haired sims, but there aren't that many meshes that are really curly.  I remembered that there were these old meshes by Sshodan that were curly but had shitty textures.  And there was a peacock feather.   So I thought...Why not replace the textures and get rid of the feather?  So using the beauty that are Nouk's textures, I made these.  I did a half-assed job but, I like them all right. I especially like the red.  Just Bodyshop pics, I'm afraid.

Those are so pretty!

But you know, the thing I like best about the dress is that there's finally something to go with that short hair with the flower.

I wanted you guys to see what I did to this Rose hair. I think it turned out smashing if I do not say so myself.  Grin You can find it available to download off of my site along with 3 other recolor/edits[/center]

That's hair is really pretty and best all the red isn't FUG.

I really like the wavy Rose hair.  I'm downloading it now.

I don't know if this exist or not, but there should be someplace where you take the pay hairs and then show free hairs of a similar style.  I've always thought that something like that would be helpful along with links and a quality report (e.g.  mentioning any gappiness, animation problems, etc.).

I think the main problem with paysites being in-demand is that they make realistic popular hairstyles (like certain celebs wear) and most free creators have unique styles that dont fit everyone. I love nouk, but her hair isnt for everyone (it is for me though, i have pretty much all of them lol). And there are a few great hair meshers on mts2 and stuff but they only seem to make Anime hair styles and only for boys :|


I think this really is the heart of the problem.  I make sims of characters from stories I write and I usually have a very specific style in mind.  Quite a few times I've found that the pay hairs were closer to what I was looking for than a lot of the free hairs (though if there's a "duplication", I go with the free).

That's absolutely beautiful, Nouk!
11  The Pirate Ship / ARR! / Helga may be showing Peggy the way out! on: 2007 January 17, 15:14:51
I love Helga's hairs, even if some of them are a little high on the forehead I like the textures and my only real complaint is the lack of naturalistic reds but that's something of a community wide complaint so I don't hold it against her.

The thing about XM hairs is that I just download the mesh and wait for somebody to do a recolour.  But it's usually worth it, even the hairstyles I don't care for are usually well animated.

I love Nouk's hairs. The animation is so nice. The textures are a bit shiny for my liking but the overall colors are good. They're so cute and animated so well I keep them.


That's pretty much how I feel.  That's one of the reasons I love her Afrocentric hairstyles so much, they're beautiful but not shiny.  I went through so much trouble to get her new dreads and I loved them
12  The Pirate Ship / ARR! / Have the paysite debates changed your mind? on: 2006 December 29, 09:46:59
I used to not mind paysites and I even subscribed to some.  But since I've read up on the debate and actually began playing the game with my pay hairs instead of just making and seeing the problems with them, I've come to realise that paysites just aren't worth the money.
13  The Pirate Ship / ARR! / Look! My hair is as good as Rose's... on: 2006 December 22, 07:46:53
I have to say, those hairs scared me just a little bit (not as much as the BeardHair but close).
14  The Pirate Ship / ARR! / Carla Niven must be destroyed! on: 2006 December 20, 09:05:47
You know, every time I came to this forum I would wonder "Who is Carla Niven?"  I mean this is pretty much the longest thread around, so she must be something interesting right.  It was a surprise to find that the length of the thread came from irritation over the crappiness of the work that she was wanting to be paid for and I found myself liking this thread.  Indignation rocks.
15  The Pirate Ship / ARR! / why do people hate paysites? COMPLETELY DERAILED NOW on: 2006 December 20, 08:54:47
Honestly, that thread is fascinating to read.  And somewhat encouraging.  I learned the error of my ways, I'm sure other people can too.
