I'm looking for any & all heads from Maru's website, which has been down for a few years now:

http://maru.ninpou.jp/

They had really beautiful head meshes and skins, here's a preview of some of the heads and what the site used to look like when it was up:

I had several before but I didn't back them up, if anyone knows where I could find any of them I would really appreciate it, they were some of my favorites! Thanks!

I have only one, Col3FaLgt_KNK02, which is by Maru for sure which is depicted on the link you give us, and three more that should be hers.

Tell me if you want me to pm them to you.

Thank you both for your fast replies! I ended up looking through the site with the Wayback Machine web archive today and after messing with it for quite awhile I was able to get to the download pages. I couldn't see any images but I found all the file names, then I searched through a backup I had of one of my old game data folders and luckily I was able to find most of the files from Maru's site. I have now backed them up, and thank goodness I figured it out because those are some of my favorites and I was really missing them on my new laptop!

Thank you, I would really appreciate it if you don't mind. That's actually one of the ones I am missing. smile

Hey, I tried using WayBack to go back to the maru website to try and get some cc that I wanted and I couldn't download them anymore. If anyone can upload the files somewhere so other players can use them if anyone can or message me the files that would be splendid.

I don't have all of the files, and I'm not sure if I have pictures or not (will have to check) but I can upload them to my google drive and share them. Give me a day or two, I recently got a brand new laptop (the one I mentioned previously was a shared one) and have not moved over all my Sims 1 files, but I would definitely be glad to share what I have. If I can figure out the names I could make a list as well, let me look into it.

Here's all that I have, sorry I don't have previews, but it's a pretty good portion of what was on the site:

https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B1yIHeg0cydMQVVDcXZSUmJtMzA

Drive can be a little confusing. To download, put your mouse above the folder or file you want, and a little download icon that looks like an arrow will appear, just click that. Or, you can choose "DOWNLOAD ALL" in the upper right hand corner.

I think your instructions might only apply to certain systems. (But then, in my place on Firefox, a good old right-click gives the option.)

(I don't actually need help (or these items right now). I just had never heard or seen your methods to get the downloads and decided to try them out.)

I wanted to share that Awesome Expression has added Maru's files over on their classic revival page: http://www.awesomeexpression.com/maru.html

It looks like they have everything and they also uploaded photos, so you get an idea of what you're getting. It was back in February but I'm just seeing it tonight. Expression has some other sites that have recently gone away backed up on there as well.

You're probably right, because I was using Chrome. The download methods also seem to differ when I'm logged in or out lol.
