    In the past, I have recommended that game creators could use custom content hair from the Sims games. Of course, the styles would have to be historically accurate. By downloading these items you are given a mesh and a texture so as long as the file formats are compatible, and they get permission from the artists who made these hairs ( who are not affiliated with Electronic Arts), I don't see why it couldn't work. Just a suggestion! :) I'm not sure what the game files use for hair (whether its .obj or another file format). I know that another game was able to convert these hair meshes from sims to their own using a file converter, so I don't see why it wouldn't work. If it is too many polygons in the mesh, you can use Blender 3D to bring down the poly count, and the textures will still work. I would definitely love to see new hair for males and females. maybe some big bouffant hair like the French aristocrats wore, Marie Antoinette inspired hair, some dreadlocks, and maybe some long wavy hair for females.

    here are some of the sites you can get these items from Please let me know your thoughts and opinions I would love to hear other peoples thoughts on this! :)

    I've thought about this! They don't have much of a variety.

    Love the idea c:, be sweet if more colors could be add to what is in game now too, imho. Idk if historically correct pink hair is but it would make my pirate lil bit more like me and i think let us have a little more customization. Especially now that EVERYONE can have the old body types, hard to make my own pirates now more unique... x.x

    This is a different world from Sims because of the fact that it's multiplayer.
    This means for people to be able to see the hairstyles in a game where hair can be imported files a-la The Sims, everyone needs the hairstyle downloaded.

    This could still be possible, by auto-uploading and downloading hairstyles players are using so you can see everyone's hairstyles. Unfortunately, however, without making these hairstyles hosted by the server, as well as being verified safe files, this leads to massive security concerns, so I don't think we'll ever see this. Especially since at the point where the server is hosting - and verifying - you might as well just add more hairstyles to the game normally, the way it's done now.

    Other options are possible, such as making character customization more extensive, such as having sliders for hair length, curve directions, flare, etc. This way hair is generated dynamically by the clients, and the server stores nothing but a bunch of numbers for character customization. This is the typical route MMO's take for character customization. Exceptional examples would be Black Desert Online and APB:Reloaded. But of course this results in creating a completely new hair system, which is a lot of man-hours.

    I'm trying to keep all of this simple lol.

    Basically, character customization can certainly be more powerful than it is now - but in an MMO game we're not going to see Sims style customization based on imported files on the user end. Don't get me wrong though, it would be really cool.

    If you're really jonesing for new hairstyles, my recommendation would be to see if some talented 3D modellers out there can whip up some new hairstyles, and see if the devs would implement them into the game. Though of course they may decline even that because, though not monetary, they may still consider it donations.
