I finally drew walls.
I finally play cuddle game.
>>29905664And made the list if items for the crafting menu, crafting still doesnt actually work though.
>>29905683While im here,which menu style looks better?left is more pixelated (will probably use a 2:1 pixel size for hd screens), straight lines, easy to make too.right is a vector that fits more with the show art, id make it more like its drawn in the book, so slightly wobbly nines and such.I loved the right pixel based one until I saw it in game, now it looks like it doesn't belong.
>>29905673>No submissive Twilight with dominant future Twilight option
>>29905678you can literally just google the names in the pic and get Fillyfuck Fiesta as the first result.
>>29905444I have a Greentext I've been meaning to work on for RGRE for about a year and a half. I want to be a writefag but I've written one thing in 3 years.
>>29905844I know your feels. When you post greentext. Some say grammar or some say error. That make me want to quit writerfag. Just because they got "Editor" bullshit. I better post it on fimfiction for better result.
>tfw you got nothing done since the last thread
>>29906101If I had a youtube id like it.
We have a discord! https://discord.gg/U5TmeKH
Still working on Within the Hinterland. I also do weekly dev vlogs, I'm horrible at voice over so it's not great, but its a good way of tracking progress on the project. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqGaTvj5t_2833AXrOhsR6AI'm also very active in this discord:>>29906368
Really got nothing... besides final day of Waifu Wars on Saturday, all my hype is on that.Semi-Final: Queen Chrysalis vs Princess LunaSemi-Final: Sunset Shimmer vs Rainbow DashBabbies Battle Royal(e): Rarity vs Trixie vs Princess Celestia vs Starlight Glimmer vs Derpy Hooves vs Octavia vs Sonata Dusk vs ApplejackThird Place Match: TBD vs TBDFinals: TBD vs TBD
>>29906681watched all you vlogsit was really inspiringI am very impressed by you and your work
>>29905709left one looks better with the game
Made a bunch of progress on boring server internals for Everfree Outpost. The new server should be finished and working by the time the next content creation thread rolls around.For the sake of having something to post, I added this status page for the server just now. At the moment the page only displays who's connected and how many objects are loaded, but later I'll add a place to input commands and hook that up to the server's Python REPL. Should make maintenance a little easier, compared to the current approach of typing Python code into the in-game chat.
>>29908056I have logged in and here is my first impression.Walking is painfully slow.Trees and Rocks seem to give infinite resources unless you use a tool which delivers only 40.I walked for a couple of minutes into one direction and coundnt find anything but wood and rocks.Would you mind telling me all about it? Is the whole thing made in Python?
>>29906046You think that's bad. Last thread popped up in my Watcher and I thought I'd get something done for it. Fast forward to now and I still don't have [Thing] done
>>29908370>>Walking is painfully slow.>Hold shift to runI must have overlooked it but didnt see it in instructions
>>29905444Ayy one of my fav threads. How is everyone doing?I just released a show called Time with Weim but meh, it's not doing so hot for a bunch of reasons. Still was fun to make so it is what it is.https://youtu.be/ycgqMGK8uJ8>>29905664>>29905683>>29905709I'm likin' this stuff. Looks cozy. >>29906681Ayy man nice to see your still alive.
>>29908406I just checked and you are right, it's not listed with the rest of the controls in-game. I used to mention it in the OP when I made threads about the game, but it should definitely be listed in-game as well.
>>29908476Is there some kind of map or something? That would really help especially if there is global chat.I don't want to sound like trashing you, I just want to give critique about things that could be better.
>>29908540>Is there some kind of map or something?Nope, nothing like that at the moment>That would really help especially if there is global chatThe main chat is global. People normally coordinate by either giving the coordinates (from the /where command), or by placing a teleporter and telling everyone the name of it so they can teleport there from spawn.>I don't want to sound like trashing you, I just want to give critique about things that could be better.No problem, I am well aware that the game has its flaws.By the way, here is the old pastebin, which has a bit more info than the in-game display: http://pastebin.com/dzU1Zf5z
>>29908635thank youI will try to give constructive feedback wherever I can
I guess I create content...more like color the content.Pic related, I colored it a while ago
>>29905444I just made this. Banned from derpibooru so I can't post it there for the comment keks.
Discord kills the thread.
>>29911026only like 3 people post any work on the discord though
>>29908447>Time with WeimI watched half of it a while back, seemed ok but nothing special.
>>29908447I watched everything three times, and it was fun.Needs less time in introduction.
>>29905664>>29905683>>29905709im rewriting my rendering queue, fucking again. so no pics to show for update. my current one works for low resolution, but its performance is so shit it takes 83% of my CPU to render full screen.It was a O(n^2log n) algorithm, which is shit but worked for testing, new one should be O(n) (should be).
>>29912225What's this algorithm do? Sort sprites by depth, or what?
>>29912350>Sort sprites by depthbasically. it gets the terrain element, determines if it should stop or get the element underneath it as well, sorts by height, then distance from camera, then by type of sprite. Old one was just a sorted dictionary filled by indexing into the data structure containing the world data, new one is a 2d array of queues (and modified datastructure for the world im still working on)already lowered the CPU usage to 7%, so im happy.
>>29912438but yes the bottleneck was the depth sort part. the new algorithm lowers the complexity by merging the sorting with getting the sprites from the datastructure since its already semi sorted..
>>29912438>>29912460Nice.I had a similar problem in Outpost, of how to sort structures for rendering. I wound up implementing this algorithm:http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/download?doi=10.1.1.96.9228&rep=rep1&type=pdfIt's a little complicated but it's extremely general and handles all the weird cases that Outpost's structures can have, particularly the case of structures occupying more than one tile.This algorithm also has kind of interesting performance characteristics. It runs in time between O(n) and O(n^2), in proportion to how badly sorted the input is (O(n) if it's completely sorted, O(n^2) if it's reverse sorted). So it works best if you save the sort order from the previous run and only a few things change their ordering each time.
>>29912607ill read it in bed tonight.
>>29913298>implying /co/ makes any content
>>29913298>>29913454immeadiatly apply cold water to the burned area
try to unbump this! i dare you!
drew weed art
built a spitfyr
>>29912225I replaced my world datastructure with a simple 3D array, and now theres no lag at all, and memory usage is the exact same. Apparently my complicated way to do it was shit.But ill keep it since it works for now, and for the first time, HD screenshot!
How do people edit pics like this to have different ponies? Does it take effort?
>>29906681What is that game about anon?
>>29918133Pretty easy if you have the puppets.you just arrange the bodyparts to match, then draw any unique detain and your done.(at least thats how I made https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M4iZ0plrnCc, but I assume stills are the same)>inb4 AJ has no frecklesI know, it still haunts me 3 years later.Alternatively you trace the body and copy over the hair and eyes, thats still pretty easy.
>>29918141It's an RTS survival. Basically you have to collect resources while defending enemies via destroying their bases during the day and/or building up your own base to defend them during the night.My main goal with this game was to prove that you can create a good MLP related game without it being such a big project that it will never be finished aka most MLP games made with unity because the forget about machanics and rely on visuals
>>29918283Nice. I would love to play an mlp game similar to Civilization
>>29918283>collect resources while defending enemies via destroying their bases during the day and/or building up your own base to defend them during the night.you bastard, thats kind of partly my idea for >>29918093except building a base, its more building a town for me. less RTS more minecraft / terraria type building.from the screenshots yours made me think of dont starve.
>>29916960oh fuck this is excellent
>>29918406Kek, stealin game consepts by day, stealin pepes by night ^:)The art style was very inspired by don't starve.
>>29918133>>29918171Actually everything was traced. For a different pony I could have reused a mane I already had, but this was my first vector of Sunset, so I had to trace her mane too. It was probably what took me the most time to do. The total time was about 2 hours with Inkscape.If you need some help, here are some tutorials.http://mlp-vectorclub.deviantart.com/gallery/34905690/Tutorials
>>29918796>2hthats pretty good
>>29918093I need to pick what to do next>finish crafting menu>fix projectiles>add more ponies>create texture imported>improve world generation>refactor menu codeso many choices~~ and such something a something
mini vacation bump
vacation is over back to work bump
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5885rzWAB5gLittle test highlight video I made on the Waifu Wars tournament. I've finished the whole video and it's going to run to close out the show.
>>29911520Was there anything in particular that was a turn off to you or was it just not your thing? Just trying to get all sorts of feedback here as we write the second script.>>29911749Thanks for the feedback. The only reason we did the extended intro was because 1) Everfreebrony did a gnarly cover of that Sinatra song and 2) it's a norm for a first episode to oversell the credits at the beginning so I don't get angry comments from fans saying "Why the fuck is Captain Hoers only in the outro and not the intro" because those do happen. Though I understand I could have presented it differently but am thankful people are pointing it out.Regardless I placed an annotation to skip it and promise it was only intended for the first episode.
>>29922985>Was there anything in particular that was a turn off to you or was it just not your thing?Not him but here's why I bailed after 5 minutes>long-ass intro (the annotation to skip the whole thing wasn't there when I watched, the only annotation I saw was the one to skip the ringing noise)>some random OCs I've never seen in my life (and whose names are never mentioned) talk about the power being out on the moon and break le fourth wall>more different intro, with barking RPG dog>finally, after 3.5 minutes, DWK shows up (which is the main reason I watched this video in the first place)>OC #1 and DWK ramble about some nonsense for a while but I have no idea what's going onIt all seemed kind of pointless, so I gave up.
>>29923120Fair enough, thanks for the response. I'll try to work with it next ep.
>>29922985The banter between the zebra and dwk just didn't do it for me. I dont have anything specific that I didnt like, was just no noteworthy joke or info in it.
>>29919856i decided to refactor menu code btw
>>29924002>was just no noteworthy joke or info in iIt's because you "don't know them".This is not bad, I'm just explaining the appeal.
>>29905444https://youtu.be/k5v1q02dBZUHere have some ponk
>>29924949as in I dont know the zebra and dwk, or as in I dont get the jokes?
episode day bump
>>29928070Episode Day Bump 2: Electric Scootaloo
>>29929305>>29928953>>29928070REEEEEshow is fucking up our generalsI miss the hiatus
We have to donate porn.
A Flutters for you
>>29924002Thanks for the info. Not sure how much I can use from it but it always interests me to see some reaction to our work. Much appreciated.
... Done with Waifu Wars, finally I can zip around back as an Anon.Here, have highlights.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_gdZuRpZXZY
>>29930249Thank you anon for your work. Chrysalis is best pone.
>>29930283For now. She's getting a trophy. Not sure if anyone will make art of it, but... I put in the request.Now to relax for 2-4 weeks and then we do Babbies.... and then that finishes and we do another league and see if Chryssi can stay the winner.
Do you guys think it's too late to do a pony dating sim game? Fandom shrunk too much?
>>29930328What is your goal? If you're hoping to get rich off of your horsefucking game, it's probably too late for that. But if you just want people to play and appreciate your work, there's nothing to worry about.
>>29930730>>29930763Basically make something like BFEQD but with just more in depth sex parts using sim physics in unity.
probably not going to do anything today since its Sunday, maybe later today when everyone in the house is asleep.
Got any clop game?I'm not talking about 2015
i didnt do shit today, but im goingto sleep and when I wake up ill do something.
>>29935901This approach bore little succes in the past.If you make it work please tell me how!
A while back there were threads with an anon making a pony rts. Did that get moved here? I check these threads every so often for news on the rts but haven't seen anything
>>29937534What did it look like. I faintly remember something like that
>>29938270It was going to be based on this super warhammer fantasy looking style of pony, can't remember what it was called but it had a bunch of different armies. Pre-unifacation I believe. Also, the last version I downloaded of it had a lot of changelings for units, and used an AoE2 interface
Doing a trailer for my game, this one>>29906681It's just the first few slides, but check it out. I even got WoodLore to do the voice overhttps://youtu.be/NdhD_4hAQ20
>>29906046Make (Something) anon.
>>29939742looks good.I watched on low res since shitty internet, was that a crossbow in ponies mouth? Ive been wondering how to make non unicorns use ranged weapons.
I have to work today, so not doing anything.
>>29940760I always liked the idea of back/side mounting
I have nothing to contribute to this thread.Anybody ever tried to make a pony doom wad?
I recently finished the very beginning of a TrixiexSkullgirls story that I started a year ago. Glim has made me change a few things and I'm not sure exactly where I want to go with it. Lack of feedback doesn't help either and my long absence has given me anxiety.
>>29908447>Don't know how to pronounce "DWK""Duck?"Also, page ten bump. You're teetering close to the edge of archival.
>>29943798No, but I used to make Duke3D maps, and have toyed with the idea of making an MLP mod of it for some time.
Tomorrow, I promise you guys.
Thread is slow.What are you working on?
>>29946577So you've never thought about making a mod that makes homage to pic related?Maybe replacing weapon sprites with a pony's muzzle.
>>29950615A Trixie crossover
>>29943798I love Doom more than any other game and have always wanted to devote more time to mapping.I got in contact with a guy ages ago who had been working on a now discontinued pony wad which looked like it had some promise, but I guess IRL shit and a lack of inspiration got in the way at some point.
>>29950615Something. Hopefully I can put up progress soon.
>Need fire to inspire me to do anything>No more good prompt threads>Just more anon's harem shit ad nauseam>Don't even bother with green>Don't even bother with the board>Don't even bother with the showHow do I get back into it without promnpt threads? I have a some unfinished stories piling up collecting dust.
>>29951297I have the opposite problem.There is so much I want to do that it suffocates me.>>Just more anon's harem shit ad nauseamI don't see it in general>How do I get back into it without promnpt threads?Just read geen of any thread you are or are not interested in.Pick anything really.What are it's strong points? What is it lacking? What would be a better version? What makes it you think of? Imagine a situation in the context: Something good happens, something bad happens, relief, despair, friendship, hatred...
>>29951297>How do I get back into it without promnpt threads?Play a game, read a book, watch something, listen to music, etc. I usually get inspired from other things.>>29951479>There is so much I want to do that it suffocates me.This. My biggest issue is I can't focus to do much, and when I do I get stuck on something and can't continue. Right now I'm trying to think of a name for Trixie's fixed fighting tourney and can't continue the story until I do.
I was fapping unity game about pony.
>>29952936>>29954142Wait wait... what game?
pretty slow now. im also not posting anything because I have to work again. Im going to try a new schedule tomorrow>07:00 Chores/exercise/get job 1 started>09:00 Job 2 (programming)>12:00 study>13:00 create pony content>16:00 Chores/exercise/job 1 day end stuff>18:00 manga/masturbate/shitpost>21:00 study>22:00 steepthats 3h of working on pony, and 3h of programming, which is about the most I do anyway since I usually just end up reading manga and shitposting when im supposed to be working, this should work if I can keep my shitposing in the designated 3h shitposting period (I usually have my hand on my dick anyway when shitposting, so combining it with my masturbation period makes sense).
>> I usually just end up reading mangaberserker?
So /ctt/ which grass looks best iyo and any tips to improve it?Another incoming
>>29955339Anon, as a fellow programmer I must warn you of doing that for a longer period of time, else you risk missing the project deadline and everything will go to shit
>>29955339damn I wish I could keep up with any schedule
>>29956743>deadlineughhh i hate that "word"
>>29956349I like the plain one top left. the ones with dark/light patches kind of look like small hills.
>>29955613mostly harem and ecchi crap
>>29955339progress report:>07:00 Chores/exercise/get job 1 startedturns out today was a national holiday, so to celebrate I only got up at 8>09:00 Job 2 (programming)started at 10, worked to 12, so only 2h instead of 3>12:00 studyDue to the weather I decided to jog now instead of at 4pm, so ill study then>13:00 create pony contentstarted at 13:30 due to reading PABAP greens while resting from the jogso far only wasted 1.5h/7h. pretty good day.
>>29961503That remind me... someone make clop game about her.
>>29956349Top right. Slight differences in shade, but not too much to actually fuck with your brain and imply hills and such.
>>29962887Yeah, I think I'm going to tone down the shadows for that one a bit more and see how it goes
