Hello everypony and welcome to /collab/! We’re a board that’s all about fan made projects. You can use this board to follow and support your favorite fan works, start something up yourself, get extra hooves for your project or contribute to somepony else’s project.

However, a lot of threads in /collab/ tend to go ignored. We’ve got a very active fan base, so if you want to start up a new project: you’ve got a lot of competition! You’ll have to do your best to convince people to work with you.

To that end, we have some guidelines we would like everypony to follow. Remember that they aren’t strict rules, but we would highly appreciate it if you follow them or at least keep them in mind, especially if you want to open a thread here.

The guidelines can be found here:

If you need some help making your thread, don’t hesitate to post in this thread. We’ll be glad to help you out, in fact, we’ll respect you even more for it. And if you see a thread out there that needs a push in the right direction, be sure to refer them to this thread!

> Deep down in a dark corner of Ponychan lived old /collab/. I don't know where it came from, nor who or what it was in long-forgotten years past beneath the light of the sun; for few indeed ventured there now.

> /collab/ had a little boat, and rowed about quite quietly on the Internet; wide and deep and deadly cold. Anons paddled it with large feet dangling over the side, but never a ripple did the site make. Not /collab/.

> One user was looking out of his pale lamp-like eyes for blind parasprites, which he grabbed with his long fingers as quick as thinking. He liked ponies, too. Alicorn he thought good, when he could get it; but he took care they never found him out. He just throttled them from behind, if they ever came down alone anywhere near the edge of the water, while he was prowling about.

> They very seldom did, for they had a feeling that something unpleasant was lurking down there, deep down at the very roots of Ponychan.

> They had come upon the site, when they were tunneling the IRC long ago, and they found they could go no further; so their thread 404'ed in that direction, and there was no reason to post further -- unless the Great Pony sent them. Sometimes she took a fancy fishing for spam in the depths of /collab/, and sometimes neither fish nor spam came back.

> Actually the anon lived on a slimy island of rock in the middle of /collab/. He was watching the brony now from the distance with his pale eyes. The brony could not see him, but he was wondering a lot about the brony, for he could see that he was neither a failed programmer nor a shitposter...

Hello everypony! The time has come for the world of the Power Ponies to grow. I'm currently looking for voice actors to create an Radio Drama of the world of the power ponies!

This story will not necessarily focus on the Power Ponies themselves, but the other heroes in Maretropolis, trying to keep the peace, and maybe even earn their place among the Power Ponies.

Most of the script is written for several episodes, all that it needs is Voice Actors willing to try out. I will post any openings here and if anybody gets the part. For additional details, feel free to email me at any time.

The Following Roles are Open:

Narrator: Nothing specifically decided for this one, so go ahead and surprise me. Just as long as you can show a range of excitement, drama, and solemnity when necessary

Power Ponies (Note: This IS NOT the same as the mane 6. They're their own characters that happened to play the roles of these heroes for a comic)

Update time! We're still holding auditions for ALL PARTS.

We do have a promising audition in for Dragon, but these parts are going to the best, not just first-come-first-serve, so feel free to audition!

We're most importantly looking for Iron Chef, Watcher and Chromatomic at this point, so that we can begin our first episode.
>> No. 47468
Well if it is a villain you seek, I'm your stallion. The Dragon I think I could pull off with out any issues. depending on what kind of voice you are looking for for him. I have multiple ranges and I am open to any role you will have me in. I am the voice of Casey Hasem of the Equestria Unlimited and I have also been a news correspondent on the Equestria Inquirer.
>> No. 47486
We'd be glad to have you, especially since you've got some voicework experience! I sent you an email to give you a bit of info on the characters I think you might be a good fit for.

Progress is slow, but things are progressing! I just want to point out that I can definitely tell we're going to need to stress that we need Female voice actors as well! So if you know anyone who might be a good fit, please dont' hesitate to point them our way :D

I am an artist and writer. Today I am asking if there is anyone who would like to share in my dream? Allow me to elaborate…

We seek to create a visual novel with an entirely original cast of characters set in a pony universe. It will be one part dating simulation, and two parts epic narrative driven story: following the journey of a male protagonist with a love of interest of his choice. A functional demo shall be launched alongside a funding campaign. The use of original characters and a vague Equestria esque setting means we will be able to copyright and sell this as a parody work.

A team is assembling towards this dream; however we are still in need. We are looking for an individual well versed in coding Ren’py, a background artist, a sound manager, and an exceptional editor. Note* since several offers for editor have been, made currently only those with experience (writing and/or editing, preferably both) need apply.

Up to six lovely ladies, six dreams, and only you to make one real. Trampling over all others only one will win! Fight for what’s right! Fight with all your might! Fight for love! Fight for all the above! Which will you support?

Note* your applications will be reviewed by the team. The email provided is a forwarding address.

It's been a whole year since the last thread. So I figured it was about time for a new one. (Old thread: >>43172). Related fun fact: Desktop Ponies is now 2 years and 8 months old.

Full download (v1.52 released 2014-10-06):

We've seen 20 new canon ponies and a bunch of extra animations since this time last year. As well as a wealth of other improvements.

Check out the deviantART community:

Also check out the OC thread for more ponies, and information about creating your own OCs:

Since I'm a sucker for making improvements to anything whether it's necessary or not, I made a few tweaks to Sunset's animations and especially to her mane, which has been bugging me for the longest time.

After all this time, it's now finally a bit more show-accurate! :D

I've also added some voice samples (so far only from the second movie) and deactivated some of her meaner or goofier lines (#3, #6 and #8 to be precise, just in case you want to re-enable them for some reason).
>> No. 47484
I don't know if this has been discussed before, but is it possible to make an oc? or does anyone take commissions for this kind of thing?
>> No. 47485
It has been discussed way too often before, but some people seem to prefer repeating the same questions over and over instead of just reading the information provided.
Here it is anyway: There is a thread specifically made for dealing with OCs. You can find a link to it in the first post of this very thread.
Also, our sprites and templates are meant to be used non-commercially, so no commissions.

Im Epic Mount, from /oat/ and for awhile now I been working on my project My Little Pony: Trinity. While the project is big and 3D it is something I been working on by myself because I am too proud to ask others to do things for me. However I been stuck on my project of late and been sad that I may not get a demo finished before Season 3 start.

Clarity says to go to /collab/ about help, but as I want to be an independant game maker I found it difficult making this thread. However he said that here I can ask others to help me help myself than just my game making, in which I would like some help in how to do some basic things in DarkBASIC Pro to make my game on. If I can learn how to use DarkBASIC Pro better I can work much faster.

I dunno if there are any DBPronies here but started this thread to help one another.

See this. DarkBASIC is a very dated engine compared to modern ones like Unity. However I wish you well in your endeavors.
>> No. 47417
I have to second the concerns, basic isn't considered a serious language. Should it be? Perhaps some variants. But a bigger problem is that it's not popular. You will have trouble finding anyone able to help you. APIs wont be designed to work with it. There will be much fever tools, such as compilers.

I strongly recommend ditching basic and moving on to C++. The syntax is different, but the concepts of variables and flow control are the same.
>> No. 47423
I've actually moved on from DarkBASIC quite awhile a go.

I'm interested in using UDK or at least Unity for my work.

Good day, Everypony.
I want to give you a project I've been working on for a while now.

Check this video to see what the wallpaper looks like:

So basically it's an android port of DesktopPonies.... but have the full market description:

Make your phone at least 20% cooler by adding animated 8bit ponies to your background.

This LiveWallpaper adds Applejack, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, Rarity and Twilight Sparkle to your background.

Please note that this is a beta release. There are still some bugs and random crashes

Yes you can believe your eyes. We finally have a new OC Desktop Pony Thread! If you want you can still find the old one at >>35944
This is where you can show off any non g4, fannon or OC ponies. Here is the link to all the ponies that people have wanted to share. If your pony is not in there and you wanted it shared instead of just critiqued or helped with then let me know and I will toss it in.

This is meant to be a place to share, get critique, advice, ideas and is not meant to be a request thread for someone to make your OC There are plenty of tutorials to help you out if you want to make your own pony. I suggest checking out monkeyjays video tutorial located here which includes a base pony to get started on. All current templates can be found here There may also be some tutorials popping up on the desktop ponies forums that you can take a look at too The main program is also located there with all the cannon g4 ponies.

Now if you want any of these ponies in your regular desktop ponies program just drag the folders of the ponies that you want into the ponies folder of your regular dtp program to add them! Yes it is that simple. For the sea ponies since there are so many I made a new category which you will want to add if you add them to your main program.
Open your desktop ponies.exe
goto options
click custom filters
type in SeaPony
click change
click save

There could be something wrong with the pony's code, but it's hard to tell without knowing the content of your OC's folder. Do you maybe have a download of that OC so I could take a look?
>> No. 47230
Thanks for the reply. I Just figured out what was up.

For reference, I'm using Xubuntu 14.04 and I believe the latest run of QT Ponies for Linux.

When I dragged the OC folder into the main pony folder the permissions changed and “locked out” all the contents of the OC folder.

The fix was to change the permissions (I used Nautilus as root) and give “root” read only instead of none.

Hi everypony!

I've made a game with ponies in it ... well, I've started to, anyway! It's an NES-style platformer, written in Flash. Applejack jumps, stomps and bucks her way out of a forest full of owlbears.

It's still a LONG way from finished, but I think the foundation and controls are pretty good. I'd appreciate it if my fellow bronies could give it a try and share your comments, suggestions, and demands.

(Future plans include music, bosses, more levels, and of course other playable ponies...)

  Hello. I'm Arkane.

I'm just going to say it straight. I need active vocalists. People who I can contact for singing anytime and are willing to give their time for my current and future songs. Right now, I'm working on a symphonic metal cover of Welcome to the Show and I need vocalists for that.

tl;dr: I need vocalists that are willing to team up with me. I do all sorts of genres so any kind of voice is welcome. If you're interested, post here or contact me via email or skype.

Skype: rafaelarkane

I'd be interested in doing some vocal work with you. I'm a little booked for the next 2-3 weeks, but beyond that, I should start having a lot more open time in my schedule.

I would like to start my own mlp show on youtube. but I am looking for people to do it with me. another voice actor (more later on for guest stars) artist's (at least 2) another writer and 2 to 3 2d animators. I already have 4 episodes written up (rough drafts) they will be short at first but if things get going really good, episodes will end up getting longer. I have long term goals for this strongly feel that it will get big to where we will have our own website, clothing and ect. reply to this if you are interested and I will get a means for us to talk. preferably over skype

Sure, I could assist in the writing. I'd need to know a bit more about the project to go full-thrown all-hands-in one-hundred-percent gung-ho to the project. If you're interested in having more people on your project, you should give more information on the project so that they can know if, for sure, that they want to be onboard the project.

For those of you that use this board, how would you feel about it being merged with another?

The current plan i have is to merge with /fic/ and /collab/ into a single board (With a tentative name of /fan/, for lack of any other ideas) , but i'm making all three of these threads simultaneously so that plan is subject to change.

The reason for this idea is that every time i glance at /collab/, i see threads asking for writers, artists or just people in general to help them with their project.
In a board solely to do with projects, the only people who would see such a request would be people concerned with their own project, people who are already helping with a project, people specifically looking to help somebody, or the people who are just curious about the board.

Hopefully, with the addition of the boards dedicated to producing and critiquing artwork and fiction, an additional quantity And quality, if everything works like i hope of people willing to work on projects would follow.

In any case, discuss the pros and cons of the idea in this thread.
I'll give fair warning before THE RECKONING happens, if it does at all.

Collab has been a ghosttown for a while now. I think that it would probably benefit from being merged with one of the other boards, as long as the /fic/ guys don't mind and it doesn't get clobbered too much. Meh, even if it does, not heaps goes on here anymore.

/collab/ isn't dead. This amount of activity looks pretty normal for an off season to me, but you're the one with the stats.

There were always talk about board changes when I was a tad more active but somehow, every few month when I returned to take a look, /collab/ always stood there, timeless and unchanged. As timeless as a place that's only been there for 5 years anyways. Mods change, admins change, other boards are created and disappear, whole new imageboards are made and merged, and attempted takeovers happen, but /collab/ is always /collab/. I wouldn't really even chime in if I didn't see /dis/ (the other slow board, a.k.a. board I can actually keep up with) bite the dust. I'd hate to see someone else who also checks in every 6 months to come back and see /collab/ isn't there anymore. Its a great place to browse back once every few months to see what slow churning projects made progress.

Although it looks like the fandom as a whole is dwindling (a short Season 3 and long waits between any two Seasons after that). Some of the frequent updaters stopped (misterbull, supersayanmikato, the Harvest Moon group, etc). Even Markusmaximus stopped. Also, later nhydock stopped. Though we are sure to lose a few once in a while, it does seem like they all vanished around the same time. So to fix the first sentence of this post, I'd say /collab/ is dwindling more slowly than anywhere else.

On the other hoof, I'd be curious to know what would have happened if the three boards were one from the start, but it moved at /collab/'s pace. (When active, /art/ can be extremely fast in comparison, so much so that artists were kept to their own thread instead of making one for every new project/piece. I think /fic/ is also faster in active times but mostly due to discussions.) I feel like each group would mostly end up with people with very similar skills, except for those with nothing "declared" in advance. There'd be a few exceptions, of course, but it seems like in some cases, viewpoints are significantly different (about what a project is and how to go about it). They'd get to see the results from eachother's groups but
