The Parenthood game pack is absolutely fantastic so far. It added so much family interaction into the game that was definitely missing, including a new Character Values system which can add several new traits to your sims through gameplay! It also added two new hairstyles for children. Unfortunately, it didn’t add any new toddler hairs, not even sized-down versions of already made children’s hairs. Oh well, maybe next time.
Here’s the new children hairstyles in CAS:
All hair recolors are Maxis Match! My CC recolors add swatches to the original hair styles in the game, so there won’t be two versions of each hairstyle/eyebrow in your menu – which I find annoying because it takes so much time to scan through them all that way.
They are also genetic – an adult sim with purple hair can have purple-haired offspring about 50% of the time, at the same ratio that other hair colors are passed onto children. While testing in CAS, the colorful hair was randomly generated onto children of one adult with colorful hair and one adult with “natural” hair 9 times out of 20, and onto toddlers of the same parents 11 times out of 20. (That’s an even 50% total!) In-game play testing, I had the same CAS couple have 6 children – of those six, 4 had purple hair and 2 had “natural” black – producing a slightly higher than 50% likelihood of colorful hair that I’m sure would have evened out had they had more children. Regardless, my point is that they’re genetic and can be passed on (no matter what color of colorful hair you choose).
