Hey everyone! My name is metalmoose and I retexture hair for The Sims 3. I retexture what I feel like playing with, but feel free to send me any suggestions!

So I Can Be Happier To Be Safe Up Here With You (ButterflySims 47 Moose'd)

So I've been really depressed lately. Which I know sounds cliche, because it seems that every creator for the sims has been depressed at some point in time, but I'm just all kinds of sad and stuff and there's no denying that I feel terrible. I've been having a lot of issues with friends and family and schoolwork and stuff, and everything feels like its falling apart. But that isn't your concern, I have a new hair for all of you. Well its not new, its a reconversion. Put simply, I made a previously unusable hair usable.

There are a lot of thingies going on here. I didn't like how high the hairline looked previously, so I waited until a Sims 2 version came out (2 days ago). I did a few things to it, and the transparency issues are almost nonexistent unless you're really obnoxious about it. This hair is also fully breast and fat slider compatible, except  it clips a TINY bit at its extremes, but hey, its much better than the original in that sense. The only drawback of all this is that I couldn't get the LOD1 that I made work. It wouldn't import properly, and even when I got it to import without fat morphs, it had clipping issues at the roots, so it would have looked terrible in all of the menus and icons. Long story short, there is no LOD1, and LOD0 is doubled.
Also, I just realized that I took all my previews with HQ mod off, and I am completely not in the mood to go back and take them all again. Sorry.

This hair's name is based on HyperBallad by Björk. I've actually been waiting to use this song for this specific hair. I'm absolutely and totally in love with this song.

Catch Phrase!
This hairstyle is 9,994 polygons in LOD0 and in LOD1 (Which is approximately 1,000 polygons less than the original allowing for morph and slider support).There is no LOD1, because I'm horrible and lazy and evil and would rather club baby seals in my free time rather than make LOD1s for all of you. Clearly.
*This hairstyle is only available for teen-elder females, because although I am capable of making child versions, screw that because I don't use them, and they are a pain, and there are zero toddlers that have hair like this.*

DISCLAIMER: The original mesh isn't mine, but the reason this version exists and functions in the way it does is because of me. Also, the textures are mine as well.

I Go Through All This Before I Wake Up,

P.S.(Its aqua): If you have any issues, then let me know so I can fix them. If anything goes wrong, please notify me, so I can make it all better.

Feel free to use this hair for any of your picture taking needs, or movie making or anything along those lines, but don't reupload anywhere. The exception to the re-uploading rule is sim bundling, but that is IT, and you MUST link back to this page. Please don't retexture this version at all, unless by some miracle I agree to let you use it. I've decided that after the 4-10 hours I spend on these things, I don't particularly want anyone slapping some 10 minute textures on my fix. Please don't steal my textures.

    Hope you feel better soon. -hug-

  2. The bad times will pass. They are a part of life and they teach you that you are stronger than what you think. Keep up the great hair fixing through and I hope things improve soon
