Tutorial: ftm hair conversions in TS4! (+ bonus hair download! ^_^)

Phew, been a while since I posted anything on here! D:
(Also, I just realised that I have a few lovely comments I never answered to :( sorrryyyyyyyyyyy! ;____;)

Anyway, this is a bit *too* long to be posted on Tumblr, so I guess here is the best place to post it ^_^ This is a tutorial on how to convert default female hair meshes to male in TS4. Hope you will find it useful! :) Hopefully, we're going to get a tool like TSRW for TS4 like we used to have for TS3, so probably this whole process is gonna become pretty much useless in the future, but in the meantime, if you want to experiment with ftm conversions... here's a guide! ^_^

NOTE: This tutorial is now outdated. The process *still* works, but there's a much easier and faster way to make gender conversions, which soloriya described here :) You may want to check that one out instead! ^____^

(Also, a super late thank you for the comments on the tutorial! <3)


Tutorial: ftm hair in TS4Collapse )

And if you want to download the hair I made to go with this tutorial... here you go! ^____^



IMPORTANT NOTE: This hair features some mesh editing, together with the conversion process explained above. Following the process explained in the tutorial, as long as you do *not* edit the mesh, shouldn't give you any crashing issues. Mesh editing in TS4, however, is still a very experimental thing in TS4, and errors may occur. I received some reports from people having crashing issues with this hair. According to this thread, crashes with cc hair and accessories mostly occur on Windows 8.1 and/or with Intel graphics card, though that’s not always the case. The reason for hair crashing is still unclear, and creators are still working to find out what the actual issue is. If you never had troubles installing CC hair before, you *shouldn’t* have any trouble installing this. For anyone else… please, be careful and know that this may crash your game D: If you try the hair and it crashes your game, please send me a message and be as clear as possible about the issues you’re having. Infos on your OS, video card and other installed CCs could help too. Keep always in mind that the game has been out for only one month, and that we're all still learning how to do this :( thank you for understanding ;___;

Hope the tutorial was clear, if you have any questions, feel free to ask. Happy simming! :D
