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.
UPDATED AUG 4, 2009: I've decided to be downloader-friendly and have thus added a .zip with all the files - meshes as well as textures. Enjoy!

-------------------------

Here you have more "First Contact" version Starfleet uniforms, this time for elders. Just like the skins for adults - which you can find here - these will appear as casuals, formals and - if you have Seasons - outerwear. Also like the skins for adults, they don't have any rank pips; If you want to add some of your own, you are of course welcome to do so, but otherwise I will be uploading rank pips as accessories shortly. Stay tuned!

I know it looks like the grey area is slightly U-shaped, but it really isn't - those silly sims are slouching! Must be the burdens of old age...

These meshes are basically the same as for adults, only I've tweaked them a little to make the upper torso less muscular for males and to give the females wider hips and and make them somewhat flatter and saggier in the upper body department. They are compatible with all versions of the game, even if you only have the base game.

You are welcome to make recolours of your own and you can redistribute the meshes with them, as long as it is with due credit, but PLEASE don't upload the meshes or my skins to the Exchange!

Polygon Counts:
For female: Polys=2101, vertices=1498
For male: Polys=2078, vertices=1534

Additional Credits:
- Tiggerypum and HystericalParoxysm, whose excellent tutorials have taught me everything I know about meshing for TS2
- Wes H for the Unimesh plugins
- Quaxi and the other SimPE developers
- The creators of Milkshape
- and, of course, Maxis

Don't forget: If you like my work, hitting the "thanks" button or leaving a comment is a great way of showing it.

Happy simming!

ETA 14/06/2007: The rank pips are up! You'll find them here!

ETA 13/08/2007: I've fixed the UV map so that the hand textures on the female skins looks like they're supposed to. (Thanks to the eagle-eyed linuslover30 for pointing it out!) If you you've noticed the hand textures looking a bit funny and it bugs you, then please redownload the mesh and skins for females.

These, and your adult uniforms are just what I've been looking for. BTW, if I could make a simple request... could you make Starfleet cadet uniforms for young adults for my Starfleet Academy university set?

Glad you like them, Captain! And you're reading my mind.; I'm currently working on uniforms (and rank insignia - I love accessory meshing!) for cadets, so watch this space.

These are great, I don't have University, but it would be great to see the cadet uniforms available for teens maybe?

vwsr2cool, it seems that you can read minds, too. Yes, I will be making cadet uniforms for teens as well; I can't give you an ETA at this point (whenever I do that, Real Life takes it as a challenge to blow up in my face) but it's my next project once I'm done with the YA uniforms.

Hey Nix, Trek-Zombie ere. I recently redownloaded the uniforms but cant seem to get any of the Elder uniforms to work as i try to unzip, says the contents are corrupted. Only The admiral one works.

Download it and see what i mean. I could be wrong. ill download it one more time.

Zombie - check my profile. There's nothing wrong with the file here, but something went wrong along the way when you downloaded it. The only thing that can be done about that is trying to download it again - I'm afraid there's nothing I can do anything about it.
