This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
I finally had my VERY FIRST EVER Plantsim in game and I was very excited until I noticed the SLIME GREEN hair did not match my default skin. I recoloured the hair for my own use for a better match, with the help of treeag's Plantsim hair unlocker, but it never hurts to share!

Both the regular and wilt states have been recoloured, and it will work on both males and females for adults and elders.

Seasons will be required, of course, for Plantsims. This is a default replacement file and will change how the regular Maxis Plantsim hair will look. Make sure to only have one in your game at a time.

I knew I was missing something when I downloaded your default clothing. Now this will match up perfectly!

*Drops Dead* Someone actually used my skins! I thought those were long lost! (I was 0evangeline0 on GoS, even though I now have a new account with a new name there.) The edit looks very nice. Those were my first blends, and they look okay , but I'm thinking of making some more. Thank you for giving some credit, but it was the original creators who made it what it is. All I did was blend. *Still Dead on Floor*

Forgot to add that they are being downloaded as I type and will be used. Thank you.

Well, it still takes some effort to blend (I've tried and lose patience and so I fail ) so I think you deserve some credit!

This was definitely needed and I yoinked it for my own game I've been a bit obsessed with plantsims lately, and I'm working on some recolors of their plant hair at the moment... Do you mind if I use your textures as a starting point? For now its just for myself, but I thought I should ask in case I end up sharing them.

Can you explain how you defaulted the hair? I understand if its too difficult, I'm just wondering how frustrating it would be to try it myself.

Yay! The default totally clashed with my new replacement skins. This is so much better. I can't than you enough!
