Recently I learned how to make hair textures from scratch in Photoshop, so I made a Maxis match texture, and blended it with my Pooklet/NuiTR texture blends to make them even more Maxis match (IMO). I've also fixed up the colours I use.

Because I haven't had Photoshop, what I used to have to do (and what a lot of others have to do) is cut and paste chunks of the texture to fit hair alphas, but repeat it exactly for each colour. This was very time consuming, and often frustrating for me, because I'm a perfectionist when it comes to things like this. :P

I looked at my old pre-coloured MM textures, and realised that my black, red and grey blends are pretty much Pooklet's Flash Powder, Molotov and Mail Bomb, so I'll be using those actions. However, the blonde and brown were more significantly changed, and using Pooklet's actions didn't look right (The brown was too warm/light and blonde just not blonde enough) so what I did was make add-on actions for Depth Charge and Incendiary to make the cool, dark brown and gold-blonde I've been using.

I've been trying them out on a few hairs, and they look quite alright, so here's my first two finished hair retextures with them.

Wow...I really like your old textures (and have a few in progress hairs using them), but these are awesome! I'll have to add the hairs to my downloads folder and the textures to my texture resource. Thanks for sharing!

No worries, and thanks! :D

Keep using the old ones if they're what you like. I'm looking forward to seeing what you've retextured. :D
