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.
Hello fellow Trekkies!

Here is my first rendition of one of the jackets from Star Trek Online. The game inspired me to create such a jacket for The Sims 3, so I decided to go all out and re-design the Mesh and the Textures. Everything was hand-drawn to replicate as close as possible for realism.

The Jacket is available for:

Male:
Teens (to be revised soon with a new mesh)
Young Adult
Adult
Elder (to be revised soon with a new mesh)

Category:
Everyday
Formalwear
Career

Enjoy!!

Polygon Counts:
HQ - 2047 vertices, 9570 faces.
MQ - 1230 vertices, 4722 faces.
LQ - 777 vertices, 2313 faces.

Re-colourable channels: 4
1) Top Padding
2) Main Jacket Color
3) Collar and Padding Trim
4) Badge and Rank

Additional Credits:
Thanks for the inspiration from Cryptic Studios, Inc., Atari - Star Trek Online.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

I'm not a huge fan of Star Trek, but I do like this. Would you consider doing one without the insignia.

Nice.. I have a STO lifetime sub... any chance of you making the other STO uniforms? :D

So, so happy right now.

Will we be seeing ones for the ladies as well?

Five thousand thumbs up.

This is incredibly well done. The mesh is immaculate. Your textures are amazing. Even the detail in the bump-map goes beyond what most would hope for in CC. And thats just from me looking in the package; I haven't been able to load the game fast enough to contain my excitement about how cool these are.

I think without the insignia, that this would be one of my sim's daily wears. But I'm a Trekker, so I'm happy about this anyway.

Two requests (maybe, please!): a version without the insignia, and a conversion for kids.

Also, I'm curious, when I looked in the package and didn't see a mesh for the teen version; usually teens have different meshes, how did you get it to work for teens without re-meshing?

Very nice! Thanks!

If you don't mind requests and all that...two things...
First, I'd like to reiterate the requests already made for the no-insignia version, and second, could you do the uniform from the series "Enterprise" with Scott Bakula as Captain Archer?

OMFG these look fantastic. Like, massively fantastic. The little details are gorgeous, and it's very neatly done, and the detail kicks ass.

Are you planning on making a female uniform of any sort at some point? I adore these (to pieces, seriously, I swear), but most, if not all, of my characters are female.

Thanks It took long hours till wee hours in the morning to get it "just right". Right now I am working on another project but I will keep all your requests in my head for future releases.

It's about time someone did some Trek stuff for S3. This is really nice looking. I don't have STO, but I've thought about it.

It's really nice! I really like it but I am wondering if it is a new mesh.

This is bloody brilliant. I'm a Trekker so this is perfect for some things I have going right now but it looks so good that I am know I will be using it with other 'normal' Sims too! Thank you so much! Any way we could get a version without the badge as someone asked - if it's too much of an issue never mind, it's perfect as it is!

Touch my mind

Yes, its a modified mesh from one of the jackets, which turned into a new mesh.

Ok the design looks great. Im a big fan of ST. But i see one flaw. You cannot use it. I have admired, then downloaded. And after putting it on the game i found it not to be there. Im still working on how to get it on. But Any help would be appreciated. =D

It might have something to do with the level of detail you have set for, I think, textures or sims. I know that with the gun cases for Lara Croft, you need to have the detail level set at it's highest or they won't show up in-game.

Cool. I see one problem though.

Though I don't play Star Trek Online, I did think the black jacket looked weird, so I looked up the uniforms, and I was right.

As you can see, the colors in the upper portion of the jacket are reversed with black where color should be and vice versa. Besides that, these are amazing.

My requests are as follows. Please make a female version of this, obviously. Also, if you could make the rank pins adjustable, that would be great.

Thank you.

Found a bug:

When elders are wearing the jacket, their head is separated from their body.
