This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
A loooong long time ago waaaay back when The Sims 2 came out, plicka made this hair.

And I loved it! I hated, however, that I couldnt use it with any hair, and I didnt know how to make it into an accessory.

Well, now, in The Sims 3, no such antlers exist, so I did it myself. Using plicka's mesh as a base, I have created...antlers! An accessory!


They are for ages teen-elder, both male and female, in all clothing categories. And by that, I mean ALL categories. Work, Naked, Singed, everything. Though they may not appear when naked, because the game seems to randomly decide if something should or not. They are EARRINGS, however, so they should show up normally.

This means your sim will wear them ALL THE TIME (as long as you tell them to). As if they're grown into their head. :D

The texture is wonky, though:
Because of the shape, UV mapping them would be hell. So they do not work with anything but simple textures. By default they have a leather texture. They look horrible with others, like the zebra texture(shown in the pictures).

They look fine with simple textures, like, say...metal?


They also have a weird effect on them in CAS, but this does not show up in game.


The weird CAS texture will change as you put on glasses and stuff, but it won't affect anything.

They don't clip through doors, but obviously will clip through stuff like beds and walls and the fridge and anything your sim sticks their head into :p

Personally, I've gotten into the habit of...putting them on EVERYONE.
