This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
By popular demand:

As seen on the TV-Show Star Trek - The Next Generation: The Engineering Pooltable. With this diagnostic and control-device you are able to manage all the systems of a Galaxy class starship.

The mesh is by me, 405 vertices and 346 polygons. The textures are compiled and rearranged by me, you can get those and other excellent LCARS-graphics on the webpage http://www.lcars-interface.de (german address but the page itself is in english).

The okudagrams (displays) are animated, even with only four frames, the effect is quite baffling.

This is based on a table, you can find it in the catalogue under surfaces - misc. If anyone can tell me how to remove the two slots in the middle I would do that.

This object is recolorable. If you want to recolor this: In the attached file pooltable_templates.rar you can find the two templates used for texturing. Be aware that you have to make a four-frame-animation for the displays (or to deactivate the anim in the TXMT).

Have fun!

Edit: One idea for recoloring could be to change the shape of the Galaxy-class Starship to another one, so the table could be used for other types of vessels.

I'm glad. From what I've come to understand, sim-ming and object creation can, at times, be tough and very unappreciated...

Congrats!!!... You deserve it!!!...

Zoinks! Whoa that has to be one of the absolute best things I have ever seen. Honestly, I don't know how you do it, but I'm sure appreciative of the fact that you can and do! Thank you so much for the things you do, they make simming so much fun!

I have just tested it.The animations work fine.I had to laugh when my alien commander was eating from the console in the middle.Up now,it is the best 3-tile table in the game.I think,the pooltable could even look better without the bottoms.Now I have a lot work to do,as your table will become standard equipment of my whole "Sims-Sternenflotte",at least the capital ships.Thank you a lot!By the way,
your logo looks very familiar to me!It is the generationship"SOL",is it not?

Jup, that's right, it's the SOL from the "Perry Rhodan"-series. Maybe I will make a decorative object out of it one day... :o)

If you want to remove the slot from the centre of the table you need to delete the corrosponding slot file. Easy enough to do. Have a look at your OBJD file Raw Data in Hex Form, scroll down till you find Multi-Tile Sub Index, make sure your looking the file you have highlighted has this value as 0X100 (indicating the second slot this will say 256 if you are in decilmal view) if you have the correct file scroll down further to Slot ID and take note of the hex value (will be 0X80, 0X81 or 0X82 for a 3 slot table)
Now select 'Slot Files' from your Resource Tree, Delete the file with the instance that is the same as your Slot ID in the OBJD file. Now the slot shouldn't work in the game.

Great looking table though,
