I made a slightly fixed/updated version of Babs Seed because I was bored to replace the old version. Couldn't stand how big her forehead was.

I also made a version of her with her Cutie Mark. Where would be the Best place to upload?

I'm honestly not sure. While he is on my to-do list (like many other characters), I find it increasingly more difficult to find the time and motivation to actually make those sprites. So, maybe someday? *shrug*

hi, i made some art based on "StepStep's" original ponyville library, this one scaled up to be closer to the canon scale. (could be a typo for StarStep?). i'm not requesting/expecting it to be added to the project, i just felt like sharing stuff.

Awesome! It was so weird that she was missing for so long. Best mom. Unfortunately her two idle sprites have the cutie mark wrong (random jumble of colored pixels instead of what it should be). I tried to edit it but all I have is GIMP, and it apparently can't handle editing these (even manually putting in hex codes it does the wrong colors).

EDIT: Finally got GIMP to fix it, and that may have been what caused them to be messed up originally. I had to change the color space from indexed to RGB and then paste in the correct CM. If the color space was wrong to the beginning it could've resulted in the color jumble it started as. I have no artistic ability whatsoever but I do have decent editing ability.

Next up, in Equestria Girls news, Raven Inkwell and Baewatch have also been released. And
Maud Pie has been updated to wear her canonical shoes.

And that's it. Nothing else to see here (especially not some strange green filly that is rumored to have snuck into my list of downloadable ponies)

Have fun :)

oc thread and other fan works Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 3823

Hi!
the OC thread gives and error 404, can you fix that please?

If you can change the core of the app, I would love to be able to add a house at the start, the same way as we can add a selection of characters. I don't think we need a menu to modify houses because there aren't many parameters, so we can just copy the house.ini from any house and modify it with a txt editor.

I also think it would be usefull to have a couple more filters (like main ponies, alternate art, unicorns,pets... but add humans, dragons,... and probably make the humans not "non ponies"), but I guess that would be too much work because you have to add it once on the main program, then add all the filters individually on each character, so that thing would be too much work.

Now I have another question, mostly to the fans, not the administrators: is there any pack of non My Little Pony characters to add to Desktop ponies? I've had a couple ideas about that but I'm bad at drawing, even in pixel, and I know a lot of games have sprites sheets (like the ones we can see on TheSpritersResource) that we can simply convert in gif and configure in Desktop Ponies, but I don't have the tools to cut, put together in a gif,... though I made some "houses" with Pokémon center sprites or a gif of GLaDOS I found on google image (artist is ThumbsDown). I'm actually surprised Desktop Ponies didn't become more popular than shimejis in other fandoms since you can add quotes.

Bot-chanCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 3824

>>3823
I can't answer all of them, but I'll try to address a few things.

First: we can't do anything about the OC thread other than creating a new one, and there's not much of a point to that at this time. The old one is gone and has been for years.
If it's just the OCs you want to download, there's this pack here. It hasn't been updated for quite a while, though.
If you want to discuss the creation of OCs for the program... hmm... well, I got nothing.


Next, I don't see a reason to remove the house editor. While houses don't have that many options, it's still more comfortable to edit them from within the program. Why throw that away?

As for filters, the program already offers the option to add your own custom filters if you need them.

Finally, you may have better luck finding non-MLP characters in non-MLP sites (although I don't think you'll find them all collected in one place). Good luck with that.

Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 3825

>>3824
I didn't see a house editor at all in the program...
also I did make some filters, but everytime I have updated Desktop Ponies (from 1.60 to 1.65) all these filters were thrown away since it's your default files...
and for the non-MLP characters, I actually made a lot of unfructuous research on google and didn't find anything, that's why I ask fans over here...

Bot-chanCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 3826

>>3825
The house editor can be accessed by right-clicking on a house after placing it on your desktop.

And yeah, I'm not saying that some extra filters (or a way to make custom ones more permanent) wouldn't be useful. The current filters still come from the early pony days when character selection (especially non-ponies) was much more limited.

Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 3827

>>3826
oh, that yes but you can't make a new house from scrap like what you can do with the pony editor, you have to copy the folder and change the gif and the ini files.

Inside whichever folder you unzip the zip-file in.

Hey bot-chan, I just wanna say thank you for uploading/posting that cumulative OC folder and just generally working on this neat little program for all these years!
I have to ask though, with Mediafire looking to delete all files hosted on "abandoned" accounts, are the files/downloads secure for all the all the ponies here?

also a link to the "announcement": https://twitter.com/textfiles/status/1339625133363912706

Bot-chanCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 3837

>>3836
Thanks. :)

As all Mediafire requires for the account to be considered active is to log in every few months, the files should be save in the foreseeable future (barring any unexpected departure from the land of the living or something to that effect preventing me from logging in).

Beyond that, though, I cannot guarantee the availability of the files for years to come.

However, there are fans out there who make it a point to archive everything related to their interests, and with any luck, someone has done so for Desktop Ponies and its collection of characters and may decide to make them available to the public once more should the need arise. I wouldn't rely on that, but the possibility is there.

In short, the downloads will stay available for as long as I can help it.
