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.
Here's a warpcore inspired by that of the U.S.S. Voyager. It is a complete recreation of the core seen in the tv-show, but not an exact copy in every detail. The blue column is of course animated, but I will do some more experimenting here, as I'm not completely satisfied with the animation. I think I will maybe also do some changes to the sockets texture or MATD, since this is not exactly to my liking, too.

Mesh and textures are by me. 1180 vertices, 1424 polys.

The warpcore has a height of approx. 2.5 stories and is based on a decorative object. The sims can walk through it, I have still found not way to prevent that besides placing invisible walls around it.

Since this is a prototype I do not recommend to exceed warp 7. :D

EDIT: Replaced screenshot with a better one.

this is not showing up in my game. Do I need to restart my computer for this to work? It looks great. I want this to work.

It should work, I tested it in my game and it appeared, but after all this is a betatest. Have you looked in the catalog under "decoratives"?

this is great! but i would love to see the enterprise-d warpcore. for the LCARS, is there a way for you to change the computer screens in the game to LCARS pics? then after that make some computers that hang on the wall like pictures.
and a captains chair! yeah! make a captains chair!
i love your work! you are so great!
thank you!

Your trek items are just... Well, let's just say I'm in trek heaven right now ;-)

I do have a question, though. In my game the warp core is about 2.5 stories tall. Is there any way to modify the height so that it doesn't go past 2 stories?

If not, it doesn't matter, it's still an awesome object anyway, but I just had to ask.

Thanks again for sharing your talent with the community!

It looks awesome. Dumb question: is it recolorable?

I have a couple of different warp cores that you made. They look great but they are higher than two floors so you either have to make a hull three decks high or the object sticks up thuough the roof. Can you trim them down to the hight of a two styoy column and maby even make a one floor version.
