I am annoyed to an extreme .I downloaded some custom content but the problem is it doesn't show up at ALL. Certain hairs for females show . Hair for males dont show at all . They show up as as seen below . But the other females hair dont even make the catalog in game .

    If the hair needs a MESH, well, you need to locate or download the mesh also. If it shows up, but as a default (that may be what that male hair is) you need the mesh.

    Also is the male a child? I can't tell for sure from your pic but he looks like he may be a child.

    The Adult male may have the cc hair, while the child doesn't , the creator didn't make a child hair so it shows as a default.

    TS2 Custom Content Instructions: What type of file extension did the file have? Is it Winrar file or a Zip file? Inside your Documents: EA Games Documents is a file named Downloads, you unzip everything to that location/file. Then you start the game, on the three dots of the game options enable Custom Content. Then quit, then start the game again to see if it installed correctly.

    ETA: Never mind I posted this to TS1 instead of TS2, sorry. the iff files go into your the following areas of the game files. TS1 CC instructions are below:
