I saw this hair on TSR, and I decided to do it out of pity for everyone who wanted the hair but then put it in-game. I don't know why, but Skysims didn't do a very good job of fitting it to the head, so I felt the need to fix it.
So this whole thing is a preference call, the hair is completely different from the original, and if you don't like the way it looks you should NOT download. I think the other one looks something like someone's actual hair, but its very thin and sad and way too high on the head, and my version looks like a pretty decent wig. Also, SkySims' version is longer than mine, so if that's your cup of tea, go for it. Additionally, SkySims' animations are much nicer, but mine make more sense. The entirety of SkySims' mesh has two assignments, and mine has six, so if you want blood sweat and tears, you might want my version. Also, my version has a way lower polycount. My version is like 1,200 polys less than the original, which can really be all the difference for some people. But as a result of this, the undersides can kind of animate funny, and sometimes they poke through when Sims heads move to angles that are too extreme. I have ONE transparency issue on my version, and its hardly noticeable in game, but I'm not gonna deny it is there, its on the end of the ponytail, but its kind of minor. Long story short, this is fully compatible with breast and fat sliders and covers more of the head, while the original isn't compatible with any kind of sliders whatsoever and resembles a really silly hat on a bald person.
Anyway, the hair's name is based on Panic! At The Disco's song New Perspective. I love the song, its so highschool but in a good way. It appeals to me in the best way, you know?

So this hairstyle is 8,990 polygons in LOD0 (which is a big improvement over the original's 10,146 polygons), and 5,007 polygons in LOD1. This is good news, because this might be the lowest poly thing I've done in quite some time, most everyone should be able to run it, I think!!
*This hairstyle is available for teen-elder females, and that's it. I'm sorry, I wasn't about to make a child conversion, its not what I want out of this.*
DISCLAIMER: I did not originally mesh this, this hair's initial shape belongs to SkySims, and their texture assignments are still theirs as well, but the rest, including the hair's newer (and improved?) shape, the current bone assignments and my new-found fat morph compatibility method are all mine.
If you like what I do, and would like to be notified earlier than everyone on MS3B of when my stuff comes out (if it gets featured on MS3B, you never know, my work might not be worth featuring. Because the copy/paste paintings of Gaga and Madonna are CLEARLY much harder to make and much more work, and a higher priority than the fixes I spend a minimum of four hours on), then please go ahead and subscribe to my blog, or like my facebook page. Also, if you like this please comment and tell me, it makes me feel all kinds of warm and fuzzy and more likely to post more things more often.
Can We Fast-Forward 'Till You Go Down On Me?
If you have any issues at all, please let me know, so I can try to fix them as soon as I can.
