And here I am using more maxis matchis hair. Lower poly counts, okay length, graphics is not supershone but style neutral (I really like Poppet V2 colors)

Yet I reuse the same 5 hairstyles because it’s literally the 5 hairstyles 75% of all guys no matter age

How does one keep their roommate happy ? I have a couch, basic tv, a table with two chairs and a bed for my playable sim.

I don’t have to give them a bed right ? I need her to stay so I can keep my sims rent down since she started her own business 😂😂

I was doing some hair culling yesterday (to see what I wanted to add back to my game vs permanently remove from my computer) and noticed the disparity between AF and AM in not just clothing (which we long-time players are used to), but hairs as well. Hence my above posting.

Believe me, I look for male hairs that fit my style, and look often. If I liked super long hair, man buns and super high-poly (my cutoff for male hairs is around 7,000 polys and for female hairs around 10,000) short hairs for males I'd be all set , but that's not of interest. So while I do have a decent number of male hairs, more options are always welcomed...especially when you have a neighborhood with an almost equal male-to-female ratio and don't want the same few hairs having to be used over and over again.


Most of my hairs are either shaggy or short. Not to say females don't have more, they do, but I have a good quantity of male hair too. Hat has a ton of short male hair, are you sure you have looked through them all? How many are you after?

Yes, you need a bed. Your room mate will go off to work and also leave the lot to 'run errands' and when he returns will have maxed motives. But, it is entirely possible for the motives to drop when on the lot, so anything your sim needs should also be available for the room mate. If you only have one bed you should be prepared for the room mate to use it sometimes!

I could have sworn that they never used it so I just stopped supplying them one unless it was a glitch or something at some point 🤔

I mean really they should bring their own stuff !

I'm am not after some magic number of hairs. As stated before, while there are plenty of newer male hairs to be had, they do not interest me (being the picky person I am) for the reasons mentioned earlier. As for Hat's hairs, yes, I do have all of the ones of interest. In fact, Hat's 'hair dumps' are the reason I switched from Simgaroop's/Poppet's textures/colors to Pooklet's/io's textures/colors. I appreciate you trying to help though.

Being that I'm on Tumblr and also keep up with Simscave updates, sure I'll find more newer simple hairs that make the cut eventually. If so, I'll be sure and add links for others as well.

I can read I can’t help at all

Mainly because all I do is retexture has hair

That said
Being on tumblr and all that
Idk why the download with 8 sims and one hair texture is the most downloaded file from my download archive and i’m Getting seriously nervous what this means
Is it for the hair or the sims bc damn no one gives constructive critism in this community and once in a while I feel like I need it to improve my content

Reading this thread: https://forums.thesims.com/en_uS/di...soft-for-you/p6

I found this:

Do you remember when Maxis was torturing a sim ?

Will Wright's Maxis was more cruel than The Sims Studio.



That was not really under Will Wright - he basically did just Sims 1 and that was Nervous Subject from Sims 2 being taunted/ experimented on in StangeTown. By then Will Wright was working on Sims Online - I tested that game too for him - and he said he was mainly the person the Sims team came to when they had questions and such. He was mainly their sounding board. But he did not want to really do a Sequel - he said it terrified him. LOL. He never explained why - but his team did make that - the same people he worked on Sims 1 with of course. Sims 2 is also where Sims Guru Grant started as well.

I heard he did approve of testing Nervous Subject though - lol. He said who wouldn't - his mother was a possible crazy killer and his father was The Grim Reaper - Lol.

You have to keep in mind - you did not have to play that way or even that household unless you wanted to - so it was not as if experimenting on Sims was a main point of the game. It was just something in that town.

Wait what?
Here it is written that Will Wright did not want to make a sequel:

It reminds me of a history of Roller Coaster Tycoon series. Chris Sawyer created RCT1 and 2, but addons to the second part were created by Frontier Development. Chris said in one interview that he wanted to transfer work on the series to those who wanted to work on it. He passed it on to developers from Frontier Development. They also created RCT3. There, in credits indicate that Chris Sawyer was a consultant during the development of this game.
