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.
I've made some objects to build your own starship, but one of the features missing until now was of course the main viewscreen that dominates lots of spacegoing vessels not only those of the Trek-universe.

Well here is one, but this is not just a simple oversized picture. You can switch between seven different space vistas (okay, six space vistas and one tactical display to be precise) via pie-menu.

In the screenshots you see five of the possible displays, the other two are not shown and are a special surprise for you. :D

Mesh and red and blue planet textures are by me, I used others I've had in my picture collection, so I'm afraid I cannot give proper credits for the jumpgate. The UFP-symbol and the tactical display are again from the great site www.lcars-interface.de. The one surprise-picture with... ahem... moon and earth is from http://tfp.killbots.com/?p=list&pname=fanart, the other should be quite obvious and once was a wallpaper.

You can find this in the catalogue under decoratives - misc.

I guess some will ask, so: Yes, it would be possible to build a television like this, but as we are limited to a movie size of 150 by 150 pixels, those movies would be pixelated (as you can see if you take a look at some of the oversized televisions available here on MTS2).

My gratitude goes to Numenor, who helped me in getting the grasp on TXMT-changes again. I did those in my stargate and the reconfigurable Trek-console, but had forgotten how to do it. As a surplus I've learned a thing or two in the process... :D

Be careful: These viewscreens tend to give scrambled images in the vicinity of space-time-anomalies or directly after enemy fire. :D

Have fun!
