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.

Hey you fellow Trekkies out there,

I thought it was about time to add the Star Trek Uniform that could be first seen in the Star Trek Movie "First Contact" to the Sims 3!

After we had a fine First Contact Uniform for the Sims 2 by NixNivis I always wondered when he, or someone else, would also release it for the Sims 3. But unfortunately this day never came .
In the meantime the Sims 4 has been released and there is obviously still no proper Uniform from the late TNG-Era, either for the Sims 3 or 4, to let my RPG dreams come true... and thats while we have so many Star Trek Staships here for download ....
That was the reason why I started meshing myself and this is the result!

My Picard in Burgundy / Command-Red

A random Sim in Teal / Science-Green

A random Sim in Mustard / Engineering-Gold

Included in this Pack are the three different division colors, as well as the six most used ranks in Star Trek.
With respect to the limitations of the Sims 3 and because i did not want to add unnecessary CC the ranks are included as different stencils, combined with one of the three colors, so you can mix them in the way you want, by editing the one's where the "rank-sencil" was used that you want in another color.

The ranks are Included in the fellowing way:
Red -> Captain, Commander
Green -> Liutentant Commander, Liutenant
Gold -> Liutenant Jr. grade, Ensign

I used a mesh from Maxis "Into the Future" Expansion Pack, that always looked suspicious close to me to the late TNG era Uniform, as basis for my start in meshing and while I'am quite happy with the result I also know that its far away from perfect.

Nevertheless I put many hours of time into this and its the first piece that I have ever published so I hope you will consider that, whether you guys out there write your comments... but I hope you will enjoy my work!

Live long and prosper

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.
