Sims 2 Hair Recolors

Here is where I post hair recolors for Sims 2. I use Remi's V2 textures (and sometimes the wavy textures these days), but I started out using Remi's V3 textures, which is why there will be some older downloads with those textures (but no previews because I'm lazy). As for the colors, I use a selection of Pooklet's colors, which can be found in the Swatch section.

Genetic Information & Binning

As mentioned before, I use a selection of Pooklet's colors, using (mostly) Family 2 for the Maxis-binned colors (the exceptions are Dynamite as I didn't want the blue-black Flash Powder, and Mail Bomb for gray). Everything else, including Primer and Safety Fuse, are in the custom bin. Additionally, every custom binned color is genetic, which means if you give a sim the color, their children should inherit it (provided you have a toddler hair that uses the color). Unlike default Bodyshop custom hairs, these aren't super-dominant to the Maxis colors. Instead, they have their own genetic values, which are in the table below with the Maxis colors for reference:

1 (Dominant) Dynamite*, Depth Charge*, TNT, Hazardous, Fulminant, Selenium, Tetryl, Detonator, Combustible, Glyphosate
1.5 (Semi-Dominant) Safety Fuse, Flammable, Cannonball, Noxious, Shockwave, Pentolite, Toulene, Hexane, HMX
2 (Recessive) Incendiary*, Explosive*, Time Bomb, Firework, Napalm, Semtex, Nitroglycerin, Powder Cake, Fluorophore, Afterburner, Hydrazine
2.5 (Super Recessive) Mail Bomb, Primer

*: binned as a Maxis color

I did this because I was tired of custom hairs overpowering every other one, and figured darker hairs would be more dominant than recessives. I've tested this in-game, and it does work, but if I somehow screwed up a hair then that's my fault.


The way this swatch is arranged as is follows: I grouped the unnaturals into "families", where one would be dominant, one would be semi-dominant, and another would be recessive, and they would all share a gray color. This was accomplished by including the elder lifestage for every single hair, but most of them are hidden in CAS so the elder bin doesn't get cluttered with a bunch of duplicates. On the swatch below, every row after the first two rows is a family grouping, with the dominant, semi-dominant, recessive, and gray colors in that order. Several families share the same gray, this was intentional.
