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.
Here is a Starfleet engineering console for you to test.

It is somewhat of a prerelease to test if any issues arise, the object will be modified, this is not a finished release. Please report any problems!

In the meantime I'm doing more with this... :o)

It is based on a surface, so you can place things on this, due to the slanting it will maybe look funny, since objects may float in the air a little above the surface of the panel.

Have fun! :howdy:

EDIT: 060505: Here is an update, I changed the base object, it is still a surface, but a smaller one, I had some issues with recoloring the original desk and had to use another base. This is gone from preview to nornal beta now.
Furthermore: It now is possible to recolor this console, so we can have multiple variations without the need to use a new GUID for every of it.

The base console is engineering (xanathon_console_basic07), recolor one stellar cartography (xanathon_con_stelcart) and recolor two science (xanathon_con_science), with more to follow, I think. :D

IMPORTANT: Pease remove the old version, before you put the new one into your downloads-folder, as the GUID hasn't changed.

Interesting, especially if one of the Fire Crystals found elsewhere on this board are used to decorate it. However, while it is a nice object, it seems a bit forced and stale.

Perhaps you can make an invisible table, then turn this into a computer, using the main view-screen as it is as the "off" mode of the computer? I am, however, uncertain if that is possible, but it is a suggestion, and it would make the item that much more useful and true to form. Maybe you can just make a manual screen for the computer, much like the Trashed Computer set also found on this board.

I noticed no errors while using it ingame, so you can at least be certain that as of now, it is fairly error-free.

only crap! It's the CONSOLE! HEAVEN! YES!! Xana, you are bringing my Star Trek Universe to life ^.^
#9 Old 27th May 2005 at 7:18 PM
Since I can't get to edit my post, Xana, I wanna say is that, you may want to use like a Computer Desk or something to cover like the either side of the table console. Like a Grayish color ^.^ Other than that, it looks pretty good for a console!

Here is a major update, this object is no longer considered a preview.

Now it also is recolorable and two recolors are already included. Have a look at the first post for details.

happy simming,

Big Compliment ... your threats are really cool.
Do you also have Star Trek walls (original & TNG) ?
like the Borg one's.
