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!

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

Well, it's time for more post "First Contact" Star Trek uniforms - this time, admiral's uniforms for adults and elders. (Can't have our low-ranking Starfleet Sims run around unsupervised, now can we? ) They will appear as casuals, formals and - if you have Seasons - outerwear. They will NOT, however, show for young adult if you have University, because somehow I don't think Starfleet have all that many twenty-something admirals.

The meshes for elders 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 make the females somewhat flatter and saggier in the same area and give them wider hips. The meshes are compatible with all versions of the game.

Like my other Star Trek uniforms, these don't have any rank insignia. There's a reason for that, so watch this space.

Polygon Counts:
Female: Polys=2101, vertices=1567
Male: Polys=2048, vertices=1447

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 all the other SimPE developers
- the Milkshape team

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 07-17-07: I could have sworn I had fixed this, but apparently the gold collar lining for the males (both adult and elder) isn't quite lined up. *headdesks* I've fixed it now - for real this time - so if you've downloaded the skins before, please redownload them. Sorry about the inconvenience!

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.

Cool! I just love Star Trek-though, mostly the one with William Shatner ;-) Do you think you could make the old school uniforms? I can't seem to ever find any!

Kellie, that's actually going to be my next project, once I'm done with making modern uniforms. I've already started sketching on a mesh for Uhura's uniform...

SIMale - you speak Swedish?! Coolness! Tack för komplimangen.

Japp det gör jag. Bor i huvudstan.

This is the best and most detailed star trek uniforms I've seen for the sims.
Huge thanks!

I'm not much of a Trekkie myself, but these meshes are top-notch! Thanks!
