One of our first moderators posted this once. I was having a bit of a nostalgic moment reading through the old thread.

I am very proud of Anypony Email, how far it has come, where it is going. The ridiculous amount of stress it had the potential to cause me has only left me stronger and more capable to deal with situations in life.

Thank you Anypony Email users.

Through my adventures on /chat/, /art/, and even /fic/ I have noticed some extremely talented chaps here in Ponychan. Now, if any of you are interested in Doctor Who, there's a chance you may have heard of a pony named Doctor Whooves. There are millions upon millions of Ask blogs featuring the timelord's (Or is it Time Pony?) adventures throughout the My Little Pony universe with his companion. (Usually, his companion is Derpy Hooves.) But, part of what makes Doctor Who such a huge fandom is it's spinoff series entitled Torchwood. Torchwood follows the adventures of Jack Harkness, Gwen Cooper, Owen Harper, Toshiko Sato, and Ianto Jones. They are a team criminal investigators in charge of dealing with the extraterrestrial. But, we never see them in the MLP universe like we see The Doctor. Why is that? It might be because Doctor Whooves' popularity just swept them out of mind. But, I know that it is my duty as a devout Whovian to make thing right again. And that, my friends, is why I need you.

If you are savvy with Tumblr as a site, you could help the production by setting up an account to post on. I.E: Creating/setting up the theme, embedding music and videos to the blog, and making sure the blog runs smoothly. You will be the brains of the operation.

If you want to help by editing, you will be looking at a rough draft and fixing it up. Making edits to help characters act how they would in their normal canon, fixing grammatical errors, and suggesting courses of action the story or the question can go. You will be the investigators of the team.

If you have skills in digital art, we need you desperately. You will draw out the story and convey the story through a language native to Tumblr. You will be the brawn of the operation.

If you have any other skills that you can contribute to this blog, be sure to contact me at ectoAlchemist on Skype or [email protected] on Gmail. Some other skills that we could use but are not required are people who could create flash games to deliver a fun and interactive experience to viewers. Something that would also be nice to have but not necessary would be an animator or a voice actor so that we can convey s

Hello everyone! I've been working on a series of stories with a friend of mine for a while now. We both really loved the Power Ponies, and wanted more, so we began to develop the world of the Power Ponies in our own little episodic stories. But I decided it's time they were fleshed out to a medium everyone can enjoy.

That's why I'm looking for artists, and even voice actors (Though primarily the artists) to help develop a series of episodic visual novels about the adventures of the heroes of Maretropolis, not just the Power ponies. Full of characters like The Iron Chef, Watcher, The Silver Star, Dragon, Chromatomic, and plenty more.

It's all being done in Ren'py, a very simple and basic engine for VNs. If you're interested, feel free to contact me by email, or just reply here. Samples of your work are preferred, and I'd be more than happy to answer any questions you have.

Thanks for keeping this project alive, Knitcap. There are interesting comparisons to be made between reading a comic and reading a VN. I can think of two examples that might bridge the two media forms: "Quartett!" (fan translated) and "Little Witch Romanesque" (about to be officially translated). Both of them use a system called Floating Frame Director that does not rely on character sprites or a text box. It instead relies on varied graphics and speech bubbles.

I'm interested in seeing how this limited animation will turn out. Is it reasonably easy to create? Does it help the pacing of the story? Finally, do you like it as a way to tell a story?
>> No. 47214
Thank YOU for your continued interest! Overall, I've been working with both to try and determine which I like better, and so far, I'm preferring the limited animation approach. But I'll definitely have to look into the VNs you mentioned

From a technical standpoint, the art is fairly easy to make (though, I can't say this firsthand, I'm just speaking from my understanding of how it works). If a character is talking then moves their head, the artist simply needs to make the "End frames" of mouth open, mouth closed, then the turned head, and I use basic transitions (Fades, dissolves, or just a quick-cut) based on the movement that will take place. occasionally, to better express movement, some still-frames of objects will "Slide" Slightly across the scene, but I am trying to keep that to a minimum because if used incorrectly it can be visually jarring.

Unfortunately, as it is now, progress is still very slow. I have one artist on-board, but his time is limited, so he really is still in just the "concept art" stages, even though I believe I have several 'seasons' worth of story written for these characters.

For example, the hero in the pic of this post is "The Watcher" One of the main protagonists of these stories. A blind pony who shares a telepathic bond with animals and can see through their senses, favoring his two birds: The Falcon, Spotter, and the Owl, Sentinel (not pictured).

If you or anyone you know is interested in joining the art team for this project, please don't hesitate to contact me, I'd be more than happy to bring them aboard. The same goes for anyone interested in creating audio (background music, sfx or voice work)

Hello, I know I'm one year late with this, but I'll be doing connectivity tests on my game soon. Perhaps even tomorrow. [ My Tumblr [] ] I've rebuilt the game engine from scratch since the last time (server side mostly). Gained much experience etc.
The game mechanics are far from being done. But I think I will be able to host the game unfinished (basically alpha) and update it weekly from there. Any info I missed out?

Hmm... It is essentially a MMO-RPG. I'm drawing inspiration mainly from Dragon Realms.
So, yeah. I want to have active GMs monitoring players and most importantly pushing the story forward (true DnD style). There will be next to no meta game! If that bothers you, this may not be the game for you. Breaking character too much will be punishable. Unless it doesn't affect others' rp.

Also, why am I writing here? Well, I don't want to attract too many people. Plus, having next to no budget and working alone I can only host so big of a server. If it gets bigger, who knows? We might think of something. I will be happy to provide updates for even a few ponies, nonetheless.

So yeah, few days max. Probably tomorrow (sunday) all-day. You can AMA here if you want.

Hey there! So, my name is Firestarter, and as the title of this thread says, I am looking for a couple skilled writers to help out on a CYOA project (CYOA = choose your own adventure).
It will be primarily of the Romance genre and based on My Little Pony, basically like an interactive fanfic. At some point this story will be made public so that any and all writers can expand on the story, but right now we are looking for just a few people who can help to write the beginning, introduce characters, start a few storylines, etcetera. If you're interested please leave a reply on this thread.

Thanks so much for your time, and I hope to work with you soon!

What made you choose mediawiki as the platform?

What about features that a more specialized engine could offer? Variables and such.

Also, this seems rather aimless. There is no overall plot here. I know that CYOAs are very weak in general, but this is weak even with that accounted for.

Hello everyone! I'm beginning to work on a MLP fan-game, a point-and-click adventure game in the style of games like Monkey Island, King's Quest, Space Quest, etc. See that neat little screen shot? Notice there's not much to show. That's because I'm looking for people to help fill that in for me. While I can write and program, I am by no stretch of the imagination, an artist. (I don't even know if I'm allowed to use the art in that screenshot for the final game)

So, that's why I'm looking for artists and animators to help fill in those visuals. Any and all submissions are welcome, of course, but mainly the visuals that I need are character walk cycles, basic actions, and a few "Scene specific" animations. Nothing (I hope) too difficult or time-consuming.

Of course, if anyone would like to help expand this game and refine it by making music or doing voice acting, that would be greatly appreciated, but my main focus at the moment is the visuals, as the engine I'm working in is very visually-based.

Now then, I'm sure the big question at this point, is what the game's about. Here's a quick synapsis:

Twilight, while researching the Elements and the Tree of Harmony, discovers of an event coming up in two weeks, "When an empty moon (new moon) eclipses the sun". Known as the "Black Eclipse", the one day every couple thousand years where Celestia and Luna's magic is dispelled and useless.

This magic includes the seal on the gates of Tartarus, which holds back creatures that were barely banished with the power of the elements. But now, without them, Twilight must find a new way to keep these creatures at bay, and she only has 2 weeks to figure it out!

Inspired by the games Uninvited, Shadowgate, and Deja Vu, I decided to make a "macadventure" game.

The story is simple. On their way to a Nightmare Night party in the edge of the Everfree Forest, Octavia and Vinyl Scratch find themselves at the abandoned mansion where it is being held. But, is it the right one? What secrets and horrors lie inside?

Instead of having so many verb commands, the game uses two context-sensitive actions, look and touch, and a simple inventory system. However, unlike many adventure games where a character can store everything in his/her pocket, you can only carry 6 individual items. Thankfully, there is a recreation room in the house where you can store all the items you find in the game. The rec room also provides protection from what lurks inside the mansion and resets your fear meter. The fear meter rises as you explore the mansion, giving you a limited amount of time to explore. If it reaches the top, Octavia will go insane and the game will be over.

I'm going to see if I can release this on Halloween.

Hey /collab/ ! Quite awhile back, I started this project but didn't have the time for personal projects at the time. Now, I am. I run my own web design business and have decided its stable enough to get some of these side projects started. :)

Today, I'd like to present Pinkie's List.

Pinkie's List is a classifieds board for bronies. Shockingly, I've yet to see one, so I made one. One of the core goals I had for this project was to link talent with people in need of it. The other major goal I had was to have a common place bronies could post listings on for roomshares and carpools for conventions. I believe I've accomplished this by fully separating "Listings" from "Helping Hooves". The site is currently in beta. It has a few minor things (consistency of text and minor search bugs) that are being fixed, but I wanted to get it out there and dicussed.

If there's anything at all I can gain from the great folks of /collab/, whether promotion, feedback, or even just criticism, I'd be greatly appreciative.

I admire the concept. I can tell that a decent amount of time was put into the site's application itself. I also like the fact that there's no logging in required. It puts less pressure on the project contributors (and also the lack of people using tripcodes on this board with little concern of sockpuppeting might reflect that statement).

Though I do have one suggestion. Why not divide the project categories by tag instead? There's lots of projects I could see being made that would fall into multiple categories, thus dividing attention far apart enough that users might feel that they might get better reception posting somewhere more trafficked. It might effectively fix that issue if the user can display listings under multiple categories at a time.

I did however notice the existing tags regarding the participation type. I can see how it could be pretty useful, but I couldn't help to notice that there's one tag for "full-time" and one for "part-time". It's all volunteer projects (right?) so what's the difference? And even if there were cases where money was somehow involved, it would likely involve commissions, right?

But other than those concerns, I think the project model itself is promising. I'll be keeping an eye on this site for a bit, and will probably let others know about its existence. Great start though!

Legends of Equestria Ponychan Mod

Thanks to tux3's valiant efforts at making a private server for Legends of Equestria, it is now possible to mod the game to a limited degree.
This thread will serve to keep track of a set of modifications for the game (new cutie marks, npcs, quests, items).

Want to help or just make your own NPCs & Cutie Marks?
Adding custom cutie marks:

Create a 256x256 png image of the Cutie Mark, leaving about 50px of margin on each side.
Save as cutie_[CMname], where [CMname] can be any name containing no spaces (but may contain underscores).
Save the file to [LoE]\data\data\cutiemarks\, where [LoE] is the folder containing the server files.
