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, 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.

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.

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.

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...)

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!

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 (v1.50 released 2014-06-15):

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.

As ever you can keep up with us on the dedicated forums:

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.

Hey there, everypony. My name's Shawn, and I'm writing on behalf of Matthew Palumbo. When I asked around for places where this project would be the best match, a number of Bronies mentioned ponychan. We sure hope you can help us out.

My friend, Matt Palumbo has a degenerative eye condition and is legally blind. He’s been blind in one eye for most of his life, and his "good" eye has been getting steadily worse over the years, with corrective surgeries not really fixing anything, so much as slowing the inevitable. Matthew Palumbo’s medical condition has caused him to go on Medical Leave from his job. He is still determined to do all he can to make the panel a reality and is selling off items from his personal collection to raise money to support the panel and his family. He has a young son, seven years old, named Ethan.

Matt can’t do a lot of outside activities with his son— intense light has become painful, makes his limited vision worse. For this reason, he also can’t go swimming with his son. But one thing they have bonded together doing is creating stories and watching MLP:FiM together— the broad, bright cartoony action is something Matt’s eyes can still track well enough.

Between family expenses and his usable vision going, he’s going to be spending the last Bronycon he’ll have usable vision to take his son to meet all the VAs he wants… and also help others coping with disabilities put on a panel about helping people work with and cope with disabilities, using MLP:FiM as a lens. He’s doing his best to take the “be a better fan” mantra to heart and spread that to others.

I put together a web site all about the panel— he’s looking for inspirational stories, as well as donations to helping the creator of Braillemon brings software demos setups to the convention— and while he’s putting together and moderating the panel, it’s all out of pocket for him. He’s going to be taking the stories he gets and making a free downloadable e-book in lots of different formats, as well as make a free downloadable audiobook of these stories read aloud.

I wouldn’t ask you all for the favor of signal boosting this pan
>> No. 46956
The edit function is going all Pinkie on me, so please accept my apolgies for self-replying. The following info is also listed on the web site but if you want an idea of what the panel is all about, here it is, right from the site:

So in supporting Matt, you’ll not only be helping a guy get to Bronycon to spend time with his kiddo before he loses his sight, but you’ll also be supporting his panel about Bronies with disabilities, and potentially helping to bring software demos from “Braillemon” (Pokemon Red and Blue for the visually impaired) to try out too!
Here’s some info on what the panel will be about:
We wish to share how the cartoon My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and its fans have helped to improve the lives of individuals with special needs.

We will use examples from the show and its fandom to discuss how to:

* Dispel negative stereotypes associated with and felt by those with special needs
>> No. 46986

"Coping With Disabilities Through Pony" Panel get an official date, location and time!

Bronycon on August 2nd, from 1:45pm to 2:45 pm, in Moon Hall.

Now that Matthew Palumbo's panel has an official date, we're halfway towards making it a success. We still need your help to make it the best it can be. If you, a friend, or a loved one have used the show to help cope with difficult situations or cope with a disability in your life-- mental or physical- then we need your inspiring story to share with others.

Hey gang, I (finally) made another entry in the Pony Platforming Project... well, sort of. It's kind of an "expansion pack" to Minty Fresh Adventure.

A lot of the things that ended up in this game were suggestions made on this very board in the original MFA thread, so I hope you like it!

How'd I miss this thread? Better late than never.

This was a great Nemo game. I'm glad you made another one based on MFA1 (because MFA2 runs too slow for me and then I fall through the floor). Minty is seriously overpowered though, which is alright.

> "I was a tad disappointed you couldn't play as Minty" and
> "Are you gonna add a giant spider boss in the update?"

That's hilarious!

I got the last Cutie Mark at the same time I found the last (?) ending: #2. That spider drinking tea was just too much. :) But it made it less obvious that the extra part was an all cutie marks exclusive.

Now you just need to make a side game featuring Doctor Whooves (his appearance in Minty Fresh Adventure is what convinced me to start watching Doctor Who) - perhaps Minty Fresh Adventure from The Doctor's perspective. BTW, fan laborers have their own ideas: who is Doctor Whooves in your continuity. Is he The Doctor from Doctor Who turned into a pony or is he The Doctor indigenous to the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic universe? And which one: the mane style (and the Doctor Whooves logo) suggests the 10th Doctor, but the mane/tail color is closer to the 11th Doctor (I happen to like the 11th Doctor best so far). I've also read a fan fic [] suggesting that he's an alternate possibility for the 12th Doctor (ie the 11th Doctor regenerated into a pony rather than into the likeness of Peter Capaldi).
