I'm about to give up and just deal with having to search for the colors in customs because I am so frustrated.

Is there anyone who can help me?!?!?


I'm a little confused as to why people are having any trouble at all, I use the newest SimPE 73.44 QA with Theo's Binning tool made for SimPE 6.0 and I've never had a problem. Is it Theo's newer 6.3 tool that people are having an issue with?

Without using the Theo binning tool, how can I know that a custom hairstyle with a hat is actually registered as being a hat hairstyle in the game?

I am very new at this although I have used SimPE to organize clothes and made a few hiders. I am trying to organize the hair to the right bins and ages because for some reason all ages have everything. I don't want toddlers,teens and adults to have grey hair nor the elders to have all the colors available. The hair bin is a mess. Will I be able to sort it all the same way one would for the clothes (sort of?) I just want what I have to be organized. I have no idea how to make or recolor anything. Thanks, KJ

I need some Help here. I've followed this Guide and Windkeeper's Guide of how to do this Manually ( more or less the same guide, but still), and have tried 2 Binning Tools, the SimPE Color Binning Plugin and CatOfEvilGenius Quick Easy Hair/EyeBrow/Eye/Beard binner. SimPE claim it's Been Binned; The Hairtone StringDT shows the Brown Code ( I made a Brown Recolor of the Maxis Cap, and wanted it to be Genetically correct), the XHTN's named BROWN and even the Binning Tools claim it's Brown, but it is Still in the Custom Color Bin. I've also Redone the File ( meaning made a new file from the Maxis Cap, copied the Textures and Rebinned it, then installed it with the Clean Installer), but got the same Result. Do You have any Idea of what I should do ? ( I've made a Thread in which You can see a photo from the Cap and the Bin its in in BodyShop, and A rar File with the hair in, in case if You'd want to take a look at it Yourself).

Thanks in Before hand.

Im not Sure it's the same thing. Hair, Eyes and Skins all have Genetics, which probarly matters in this case. You can read more in Guide's like Making Object recolours and such. Recolours of Objects are easier, they'll be like the Base Recolours that Comes with the Mesh itself, so You wont even need to touch them more once You've made them in the SimPE Object Workshop and installed it with the Clean Installer. I've made plenty of Car Recolours and they've been problem free. You make Cloth-recolours in BodyShop, and they'll end up in the same Bin as the Mesh You made it from, Plus, in Bodyshop, the Texture will be auto-extracted into a Folder in the
"Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Projects", so you'll just need to open it in a Paint Program ( Do Not chance the ones Name Alpha, they are Mesh Related!), edit it and then save it, open "Body Shop" ( you can actually leave it on while editing the Texture, it won't affect Anything!) and click "Import to the Game". You won't even need to Install it. If You don't want some Ages to have that clothing, You can Remove all their Textures Images before Importing the Textures to the game ( remove their Alpha's aswell). Toddlers Textures will start with PM, Children CM, Teen TM, Young Adults YM, Adult AM and Elder EM.

Sorry if I explain Blurry, I can send some links to Good Guides if You'd like (unless You've allready figured things out)

I just followed this tutorial& it seems easy but, for some reason it didn't work for me. I have a hair that i've cleaned up the extra colors on& a few ages so, I'm left with af,ef,tf. AS you said the creator in this case had used blond to create all other colors so, I first checked the texture& all the proxy values do match to the numbers you had written so, it looked like there was nothing else to do but,the hair was still not binned, so, I try to change the name from blond to the corresponding texture colors coommited&save. Still same problem in bodyshop- What is it that's wrong with this hair as when I looked at a properly binned hair the proxy values looked the same as you mentioned just like this one. basically all the proxy values did match the corresponding texture colors before I did anything but the hair was not binned. So, what else can be wrong?

What am I changing this too? I didn't see anything about eyebrows previously and so I'm confused where it says you change it to the same thing you did for the eyebrows... Could someone clarify? I've been trying to figure out a way to this forever, so I'm really happy about this tutorial. Thanks!


I am very confused as well.

I know this is an old post, but I need some help please!
I have a single hair that I've created for a specific sim. Well, I've managed to get it binned and stuff, and I thought it was all good! Well, the sim got pregnant and when wearing her maternity clothes, she reverts to some maxis/yucky hair!
What exactly do I need to do to get this hair to continue reading properly even if she's pregnant?
Thanks HugeLunatic!

Thanks HL, but I'm still not understanding what it is I need to do...? Your link was just a resource of valuable info, but I didn't see a single thing about maternity, let-alone maternity AND hair! ???

Take that back, upon closer inspection ( ), I DO see the pregnant category for clothing (which I AM familiar with!), but is it also the same thing for hair?

And thank you for your quick reply! AND this great tute!!!
