Maxis match... hair? - Sims 2 Journal — LiveJournal
Maxis match... hair?
I'm thinking of switching over to maxis match hair. I mostly play maxis match anyway with objects and clothing and stuff. I love love love pooklet's colours, but not all hair creators use the colours I prefer to have. Maxis match seems like it would be easier with them all being the same shades and stuff. Plus this hair defaulting project of allisas is really tipping the scales for me. The less hairs I have to scroll through the better and so many maxis hairs are just way too fugly for me to use. It also seems like most my fav hair meshes/creators have been made maxis match, especially stuff by trappingit.

Thoughts? Which do you prefer? Does it even really matter to anyone?

In my game, I like my hair shiny. Even when playing with maxis-match skins and eyes, I tend to have at least some shiny hair. That said, there are certain styles that I ADORE in MM, so I tend to have a mixture of both! :D

In other games, I don't mind one way or the other. Tis your game! ;)

I've seen some maxis match-ish hairs that look a little shiny. I'll never switch to dull maxis match eyes or skins, but there seems to be some good quality maxis match hairs out there. I don't like mixing my hairs for whatever reason. I know in real life not all blondes have the same colour of blonde hair, etc. But it bothers me in the game when they don't match shades. I'm weird. I guess its cause if I want to give a sim another style I want it to match exactly the colour they had without having 5 different blonde colours cluttering up my game.

It's all up to you and how you prefer to play, but I'm a fan of the maxis match textures. Remi'd hairs are always so nice, and remi's textures seem to be gaining popularity.

Plus, maxis match hairs only have the 5 basic colors, so hairs take up less space. :)

The idea of having 5 basic colours is a huge draw. I really like my hairs with pooklet's colours, but there are just too many of them! Plus I've seen some really nice maxis match hairs out there recently.
