Hello everypony I am 20yr old Game Design Student looking for people willing to help set up a website for a Brony Game Developer Community as well as Leads for different disciplines(eg. designers, programmers, artists, composers).

The purpose of this website is to bring together bronies who are interested in game development. I've had quite a positive responsive after posting the following proposal on Reddit:

"I've been throwing the idea for a game development community for a while now. Something like toastbeard (which is used by the musicians) but for bronies interested in game development. Now I'll say right now that I'm not talking about just pony games. My vision behind this idea is to help bronies connect and learn from one another, this as a result can help bronies find others to work with on either a pony game or a commercial game.

One thing I want to specifically implement brainstorming/design discussions. This would happen in the form of taking a stimulus (similar to toastbeard) through a phrase or keywords. An example taken from a 40hr game development competition I was involved in was "Forgetful, Relative, Opposite". At this point we would take some time to think about the stimulus before finally pitching a game idea incorporating each of the key words. Everypony would then be encouraged to provide feedback and ways to enhance the pitched idea.

The main reason for why I'm putting this idea forward is that for months I've been paying attention on EQD for any small flash games that draw attention. Some are silly and fun, some are made for laughs and end up having a poor level of design; however there are some that have serious potential. Some of you may have played "My Little Hang Glider", if you haven't you really should. When I first saw it I said to myself "this has the potential to become a full commercial game". In our community we have successful artists and musicians who have gone or who are going commercial with their craft. These sub communities have grown with constant back and forth discussion with one another. I want to make that happen here. Anypony can make a game, but only a

This sounds like it could be an interesting idea. I don't know if it'd take off like the music community has, but I think it's worth a shot. Putting out a call for help on /collab/ is generally futile since people don't want to join a project where they have no idea about the level of commitment the author has. Providing a working demo is one way to show commitment, but there's a *lot* to game development and most people who only have a subset of the necessary skills will burn out before a demo is made.

What is needed you need is a space for people to request help on *specific* issues. I might not be willing to join your project, but I'm much more apt to provide answers to specific questions when they stray into my area of expertise. Its true that you can get that any any developer community but sometimes its nice to have more in common, especially when most people still raise their eyebrows when you start talking about ponies ;)

Well crap I wanted to do this but now it probably won't be taken seriously.

As for why it can be of use, a community does not need to be super active to be useful. Posting at a chan is a way to get lots of low quality posts. A focus community can be slow but insightful.

Hello, everypony.

So, I am working with Clockwork (the mod behind the askfrederic tumblr) on a project: It's a webseries that we hope will give the pony fans something to look forward to during the break between seasons 2 and 3. Basically, it involves two background music ponies: Frederic Horseshoepin (pianist) and Cantabile Sotto Voce (opera singer), who host a radio show where they talk about classical music and daily pony life. Think of it as something like the Vinyl Scratch Tapes.

Now, the thing is, we need animators. We currently have one, but family problems are preventing him from using his computer. He's still drawing and storyboarding, but we need all the help we can get.

I'm trying to make one of these get-sounds-from-the-show-and-alter-the-pitch-to-make-it-sound-like-the-music videos (I don't know if they're actually called that) e.g. Intensive Pony Unit, but I'm having difficulty finding sounds.

I need: a bass drum (low drum) and a short, high-pitched cymbal (hi-hat?). If anypony can point me in the right direction I'll be sure to credit you when I get around to finishing the video, thanks in advance to anypony who replies!

Concerning this project: http://www.equestriadaily.com/2012/03/eqd-asks-what-would-you-do-to-have-your.html

I am convinced that what needs to happen to make this a success is "22 Short Stories About Ponyville"

Key reasons:

1) This puts it squarely in the realm of parody which protects it from copyright issues.
2) One can feature many of the background ponies, OCs, and one-shots. No being forced to choose. This also increases exposure to the fanon in one video for outsiders.
3) Lots of bronies want to adapt fan fictions, many of which are far too long for this format. There is very little in the way of existing material which is the suitable length and tone for this effort. What does exist in spades are one-shot comics (4-16 panels in length), which is the exact amount of content to make a 60 second segment work. So we're already good at this part!
4) More opportunities for fans to contribute on a per-segment basis. First, second, third place finishers all get to be represented. The more prolific can contribute multiple times.
5) Increased parallelism in production
6) This would help the fan video reach the same level of extra-Brony attention that the Ponybase Alpha video did, since it is parodying something external to the show. This could increase the fanbase even more in anticipation of season 3, so that Hasbro doesn't dare cancel it once it reaches syndication.

>Apple Bloom just blinking for five solid seconds looks really weird, and the long pan shot on the back of Scootaloo's head when we really need to be seeing either her or AB reacting feels lazy

These are the sort of things I'd expect to see in an anime that want's to keep the animation budget low. They're great work-savers, and I'm not really surpassed to see them here, it's just that they're something we have never ever seen in FIM and they clash horribly with the whole 'make something that looks like the show' objective. If you want to make something that passes as an episode, you really need to be able to match the framing styles that the show uses as well as having ponies that are convincingly on model.

And the sets need an upgrade or two. They lack the detail and the texture (for lack of a better word) of the locations from the show. Example: the first wide angle shot we see is looking dead on against the back wall. That's an easy set up to draw, since horizontal across the monitor is horizontal with the back of the set. But it's an angle that I can't ever remember seeing in the show. The viewpoint is always off angle to some degree, and that helps illustrate the depth and shape of the space the characters are in. This is further helped by the use of gradients to help set up lighting an shadows. The room the CMC is in just has flat monotone walls without any shading change with lighting or distance. This all combines to make the whole thing seem very flat.

The hallways shot at the end is even worse, since here we don't even have any vanishing point work to toss up the illusion of depth. It looks like camera pony is just standing on a flat picture instead of walking in a hall- it's got as much depth as something made in ponycreator.

But these things can be overcome; I don't have any formal animation training and I was able to spot this stuff after just a few viewings. With a whole community putting eyes on this (or at least some of the more artistically trained members of said community) it should be a snap to get something respectably convi

Exactly. Which means despite what N66 may think, he needs a storyboarder or two to work out this stuff BEFORE he fires up Flash and starts plopping assets onto a keyframe.

It's not enough to crowdsource a writer and some VAs.

I've abandoned the "22 short stories" idea btw (starting a new thread)

Hello there! Are you an aspirant voice actor? Are you up to the challenge to voice some really quirky characters? Are you seeking to be part of a team and join artists, writers and musicians together in a crusade to make one of the "LOUDEST" online storybooks out there?

Well you're in luck, my dear friend, because we're currently seeking Voice Actors for our promotional videos (and possible future skits) to get around!

We're looking for both female and male aspirants, but you can go ahead and try for roles opposite to your gender!

If you're interested (and of course, want to know the details into "Well what the heck am I getting to? Who am I voicing here? Will they give me donuts at the end of the day?) Just send an e-mail over saying you're interested and we'll go from there!

And since I've gotten this question more than once: Just click on my name right up there over the post, and you'll see the address.

Team Whinnypeg and myself will be waiting eagerly for your interest!

Hello everypony,



I've finished learning Python and one of the goals they've set me is to create a great scale project (this means, a site that can support massive amounts of users and meaning serious business), and I thought about the community. What does this community needs? What's the main issue about MLP? Then an idea came up to my mind: Watching it.

Many non-american bronies (including me) might know how complicated it can be to watch the show with the original voices and many can't even watch it on TV because It's not available in their countries. So, I thought why not making an online streaming for everypony?
Then many question raised about this: Will I be sued because of this? Will I be able to pull it off? Will I be able to gather the money I need to do this?
Well... I don't know. But It won't kill me if I try. And with this I come here to ask you (yes, you!) for help. I can't pull this alone, that's for sure. I have studies and things to attend and two minds think more than one, so I want to recruit people to help me developing this. Right now, I'm looking for:

-Developer(s): Since this is going to be in Python, you must know how to manage Python and Django (we can learn and improve ourselves, but you must know the basics). A plus for Javascript and AJAX. Since we will be at least two or more, insanely active or making one commit per month, we will need to setup a SVN, It would be nice if you know how to manage yourself around it.

Umm... there are several sites that stream the shows already, most of them show it live. All of the episodes are on YouTube at least twice as well.
I'm not trying to crush your dreams or anything but I don't really thing you'll get anywhere with this...
>> No. 35646
Two words. You.tube.

Plus, there ARE livestreams each week when the episode airs, with repeats a couple of times through the day before it gets on 1080p in youtube.

A site that requires you to register, that is by invitation only AND that requires you to give money for something you can do easy already sounds quite dodgy to me.

The only different thing you could do that -might- justify giving money (and which is rather grey-zoned legally) would be offering downloads of the eps, and if you're going to offer downloads on top of streaming... Well, most people know what happened to the last site that did that.
>> No. 35647
>>35646
I didn't mean to put it that way. I don't want people to pay for registration, I was talking about pre-launching. Yes, my bad.

I'm not going to offer downloads, It's 3 times more expensive than streaming.

The idea is to gather all the episodes and have it in iTunes quality or better, probably subs and let everypony watch the show anytime, anywhere without any restriction.

Maybe Youtube is more popular, but not reliable at all. This would not be a livestreaming, this would be a "youtube" which will only contain MLP episodes.

Hey, guys. A while ago, I had the idea for a pony-themed mod for Civilization V. I know there's one for Civ IV already, but I don't think there's one for V yet. (Let me know if I'm wrong, though...) Unfortunately, I know nothing about programming, 3D animation, or... well, I'm the idea guy. Beyond that, I don't know what I'm doing. Can I get some help, please? Inquire within. Once I have it done, I'll put a link up to a doc with some more information.

You'll be needing ModBuddy, a tool found in the Civ V SDK (it's a tool on Steam, if that's where you got it). The guide explains how to use ModBuddy, as well as how to do certain things like create a Civ, leaders, traits, etc. etc. Give it a read, and you'll be on your way...

Well, figured I should put a post in here to see if anypony's interested in this.

Basically I got annoyed over Christmas with ponibooru and other Shimmie/Danbooru clones all being pretty slow and not particularly clever. I write webapps as a bit of a hobby (compsci student) so figured I'd hack something together.

http://derpiboo.ru/ is the result of that. It's a completely new bit of booru software which I'm going to be open-sourcing soon but I'm basically using derpibooru as a testbed and to kick the tyres. There's not a lot of content there (~3000 images at time of writing) but it's full of features and neat stuff, as well as being crazy fast.

Some highlights:

* Fast. Really fast. Written in a way which avoids it becoming slow with a large DB - it'll stay fast
* Scalable. See above. Avoids the messy relational DB approach, and can be sharded across multiple servers with ease
* Very flexible tag spoilering, hiding, and lots of user-tweakable view options including thumbnail sizes and images per page
* Fuzzy (and specific) tag searching capabilities

My only suggestion to you is this. Please, please, PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF BABY MOSES HIMSELF, follow danbooru/gelbooru's tagging system. The Ponibooru tagging system is irritating to no end. If I wanted a picture of Twilight using levitation to move a book, I'd much rather search "twilight_sparkle book levitation" than to just search "twilight_sparkle" and sift through page after page of irrelevant images or risk missing what I'm looking for because the uploader couldn't tag for shit.

Just a suggestion, of course.

Hey guys, PK, author of that one story about silly marshmallow ponies here. If you're familiar with the story, you might have noticed that a long time ago we released the first two chapters in radio drama format and then fell dark. Well, the reason for that was that our audio editor was overwhelmed by school and is unable to continue his work. We're seeking somepony with general experience in audio editing (splicing together the different VA's, mixing the music volume levels, etc.) Leave a post with contact details here or email me at pk.mlp.fim@gmail.com if you're interested, and thanks for your time!

Seeing as the various desktop ponies projects for non-Windows systems are somewhat slow/lacking/not-in-developement-anymore, I decided to make my own port (it seems to be a quite popular thing to do). I used Qt to support as many platforms as possible, but the main developement and testing is done under Linux.

The latest version is available here: https://github.com/myszha/qt-ponies/

(The Windows version was not tested much, but it seems to work.)

At the moment of writing this (v0.5) there is support for:

- Behaviors (including following)
- Speech (only text for now, audio coming later)
- Dragging, mouseover, pony context menu, sleeping
- A configuration window (which hides to the system tray)

Greeting bronies,
me and another brony got an awesome idea we'd like to share with other fans:

Do you remember the novel "Last Unicorn", the best thing about Unicorns in human history before MLP came? Appearantly, the author offers the book on
his private shop, with a higher price even a Personalization note. (around 30 dollars)
Here's the link:
http://www.conlanpress.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=LU-TR

And here's the joke: Me and another brony, plan to buy each a copy with a personilazation, but instead we will let the poet write down MLP related notations.

Mine would be "Rarity is the most fabulous Unicorn."
the other brony would take the chance with Lyra "Unfortunalely, Lyra won't turn into a human in this story."
