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.
UPDATED AUG 4, 2009: I've decided to be downloader-friendly and have thus added a .zip with all the files - meshes and textures - for adults and ditto for elders (I would have added one containing all files, period, but unfortunately it turned out to be too big). Enjoy!

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

I've lost count of how many requests I've got for this, and not because I'm mathematically challenged. Here you finally have them: the "Insurrection" version dress uniforms for your Starfleet Sims!

As you can probably guess, these uniforms are formal wear, so you'll find them in that section. If you have University, the uniforms for Command/Ops/Science are available for young adults as well as for adults and elders, but the uniforms for captain and admiral are available for adults only. Of course, they can be worn together with my rank pips and my rank insignia for 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 give the females wider hips and and make them somewhat saggier in the upper body department.

Polygon Counts:
For female: polys=2075, vertices=1583
For male: polys=2004, vertices=1618

Additional Credits:
- Tiggerypum and HystericalParoxysm, whose excellent tutorials have taught me everything I know about body meshing
- Wes H for the Unimesh plugins
- Quaxi and all the other SimPE developers
- The Milkshape team

Since some of you have asked: I am eventually planning to create uniforms from all the Star Trek series, as well as some extras like the captain's vest (and teenage cadets - I haven't forgotten about them). That I haven't yet done so doesn't mean that I'm out of ideas - far from it - but there's only 24 hours to a day and unfortunately, Real Life has to take precedence over simming. (I know, I know, I need to get my priorities straight. ) But you know what they say, good things come to those who wait...

Don't forget, if you like my work, hitting the "thanks" button is an easy and painless way of showing it.

Happy Simming!

I love these white formal star trek uniforms.

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.

Incredible! Thank you. I was wondering if you'd do these next.

I have been looking far and wide for Starfleet paraphernalia, and it seemed that no one had any, until I came here. THANK YOU for ending my long search!! If you could make a teenager version of the dress uniform also, that would be amazing!

Also, I'm not entirely sure, but I think that admirals have some gold piping around the collar...

Shrike2415: I hadn't really planned to make dress uniforms for teens, but it should be doable without giving me too much of a headache. I'll put it on my to-do list, but it'll be a while before I get to them - I have a bunch of other projects I need to finish first.

Re the collar for admirals, I've checked it again, and I can't for the life of me see any gold piping (even though I agree that it would make sense for the collars to have some). Granted, if it's very thin piping, the zoom blur might have eaten it - but if that's the case, then it wouldn't be visible in game anyway... so I'm going to let the collar remain red. Thanks for the input, though!

Very nice, I just wish that your phenomenal Trek work was compatible with Sims 3.
