Hair Styles for Characters : XML Specs
« on: March 24, 2011, 10:52:25 PM »
This info is covered in the XML Specs thread but I thought I'd make a thread for just this alone so it's more clear.

To change hair on a character, open their XML file and look for the <Hair> tag.  Then use one of the following (the part before the parenthesis) to set the hair style.  For instance, to use Kendra's hairstyle you would set the tag line to: <Hair>punky</Hair>

Female Hair:
messy (Alison)
punky (Kendra)
pixie (Layla)
glamour (Robyn)
feathered (Ulani)
glamour-mixed (Shauna)
short_messy (Tiffany)
updo (Ayumi)
bop (Catt)
secretary (Vanessa - without glasses)
secretary_w_glasses (Vanessa - with glasses)
night_out (Samantha)
angel (Joanne)
none (bald)

Male Hair:
short_mussed (Alec)
none (Tai)

Jak,

Can we change the hair color?  If so - how?

Thanks.

(If I can change the color, might be back to make some additional mods)   :eyebrows:

As soon as I release the Hair Styler add-on you will be able to change the color, yes.

I just purchased Catt and tried to use her hair on a mod.  I used the following tag - <Hair>bob</Hair>.  When I open the mod, she has no hair and I get a "Missing Items" notice.  The missing items notice goes away if I use a different hair style.

The 'bob' works on Catt.  I tried the "bob" on other mods with the same results - an error message.  I tried other hair styles and they work on this mod with no error message.  I tried re-installing everything and still get the same error with the 'bob'.

Does the 'bob' work on mods?

Try bop, not bob.  I just realized I typed it wrong in the first post... fixing it now!

Do you have the hair styler add-on?

There is no way for users to add new hair textures to the sim, but with the hair styler you can easily colorize it.

Try the following type of tag in your XML file:

<HairColor>0,179,17</HairColor>

The three numbers are RGB values for the hair color tint.

The tags go into the character xml file.

There is no way for a user to load a custom hair texture so there's no file you need, you just add the haircolor tags to the character xml file and that will do it.
