  1. Stardust Balance

    Ask The (Bickering) Married Couple!

    "Heyo!" "Welcome everypony!" "Welcome to this forced topic thread regarding our union, spawned by the most popular fanfiction ever created- Oof..." *Nudges roughly.* "We're not here to boast, honey... Ahem, we're here to gladly answer any and all inquiries you may have for either of us." "With some guest appearances by a certain baby lizard, and a pink student if needs be." "So don't be shy good friends. Everypony's welcome here to join the fun! Have an amazing time!" "And don't forget to like comment and subscribe!" *Collectively wide grinning.* ... "That good love?" "It's a work in progress certainly..."
  2. It's been a while ~ As you may know, I've been working on the pause menu. When it was ready, I was able to configure/update existing features, as well as add new ones to make it all work properly. So now I have bunch of updates! First of all, let's start with that Pause Menu I've been working on for a while I believe everything there is self-explanatory. If you're wondering how many languages will be supported - by 'default' I aim into supporting these two: English and Polish. However! I'm programming the game in a way, where all the text is stored in external .ini files and visuals are adjusted based on the text's real width where necessary, which should make it less painful to translate, so if anybody would be ever interested in translating the game to another language, there always will be that possibility. ------ but that all will come in the right time... or not... I'll see how it goes. The next thing, related to the Pause Menu is Spell Enhancing. In short, you get some-kind-of-magic stars through leveling up. These stars are used to enhance (upgrade) spells. Enhancing may: - increase damage - amount of projectiles - their duration - their speed - their size - "Area of Effect" - add special effects - or even change spell behavior - etc.. Each spell is different, so are their upgrades. For example, I've prepared a some kind of a tier table for the basic spell, the magic projectile: And now the recent thing I've been working on... Leveling UP now raises stats and stuff. Previously leveling up wasn't doing anything other than increasing your "Level" value. Now it does have an effect, as seen below: I also did some smaller adjustments in meanwhile, like optimizing the code here and there (including collisions ... again -- and I'm sure I'll still have to adjust these once again in the future..) ~ but that's something you won't find interesting. Oh and I also started working on the Everfree Forest. It's too early to show anything though, but sooooomething is happening there. And that's all I think... Well for some testing I also made Tom ...If Tom could throw a party, it would ROCK! An amazing addition, I'll throw it in the title. So now it's all I think. Thank you for visiting!
  3. The second part of this little trio of themed readings will be "Now I Know In Part" by Cynewulf. A story of Twilight, and repetition. As always, it will take place in the Poniverse Discord, in the Storytime voice chat channel. You can join us beforehand, during and after in the Library Lounge text channel as well - I'd very much like to know if you enjoyed it, or have constructive criticism. Hope to see you there, Quinch
  4. Hmm.. so after few days of wondering on how things will work like, I think the pause menu will look like this: Of course the ABCDEF thing will be replaced by proper description of highlighted option/item/spell. What these below spells are? These determine the spell's tier. Basically you'll be able to improve them along with progress, sometimes it will be a slight change, sometimes a major difference in behavior and whatsoever. To give you an idea on how more or less it will work like, here's the table I've prepared for the basic spell: is TIER I is TIER II is TIER VI -and if someone is wondering what "A-F SPD" means, it stands for Auto-Fire Speed. This spell doesn't have auto-fire, hence [ - ]. This is what Element of Laughter specializes in, for example. Anyway, as you can see, not much changes there, as basically it's a 'default' spell. It gains damage, speed and size, but still behaves as a normal straight projectile. Note, that things may be changed in the future, as I suspect I'll keep re-balancing things over and over again along with progress (development-wise). I probably won't be updating this, nor posting more tables, because nu spoilers for you. It is meant to be discovered on your own. Thank you for visiting!
  5. Hello everypony! Finally the HUD has been reprogrammed! ~And length of the HP bar increases along with maximum HP! For some reason I always like that little feature in games, because that makes increasing max HP more interesting --- especially checking if you can go off-screen with this. I thought it all will take few hours, but it ended up taking two days, heh. Why it took so long? I had to replace most of the HUD graphics in game files and reprogram the HUD in general, mostly spell icons, due to their new switching animation. I also have optimized the code, now it's shorter, organized better, thus more efficient & readable. I also have added some script functions that will come in handy when programming features in the future. ...Also I discovered, that previously there were two typos in the code. It wasn't a big deal, as things still worked in the end without crashing the game, nevertheless it's of course better to not have any of this floating in the code. I guess this design will do, at least for now. And as always, thanks for visiting!
  6. Hello everypony! It's been a while, hasn't it? Last year turned out to be kind of busy for me, but hopefully this one won't be like this! I've been wondering on which project I should be working on and to this moment I have no idea. I've decided to poke this one first, but I think I may be switching between this one and MLP: The Game, as I'd really love to get these two done. My priority project will always be the first one I have ever started - MLP: The Game, but it's good to work on different things once in a while to avoid getting bored. I'm also having 999 other ideas for games and I'm trying my best to not distract myself with these. Okay, so let's get to the point. Mooooonths ago in one of the updates, @HereComesTom mentioned moving things in HUD: For a reference, here is how it looked like so far: The 'mana bar' he mentioned is the energy bar with Elements of Harmony seen to the right. For me it looked fine as it was, as I kinda didn't want to throw everything into one corner... until I realized how inconvenient it was in practice. You see, switching spells was confusing when these were on the right side, due to the order of them appearing mirrored. I thought players will eventually get used to that, but I couldn't really get used to it myself. Switching spells wasn't a big issue, but whenever I looked at HUD, it was confusing me. The order of icons wasn't really readable and I imagine it could get worse when more spells would become available. There was one thing I was sure of... That these have to be on the left side. So today I've been working on redesigning the HUD ... the whole day. I was moving things around and finally came up with this: SOME OTHER CHANGES I'VE MADE: - HP bar is now thicker, because I wanted to make it stand out more, to make it more noticeable even without really looking at it. - HP bar's length now grows along with maximum HP. - Spell icons have less details in order to save some space and make the HUD less spammy. - Spell icons have thicker energy bars, because I removed the long energy bar and used numbers only. I wanted to give those little bars more highlight and make these more readable. ...Though I had a feeling, that something was wrong. It seemed so... clogged. One of my fellow devs suggested me this: ---and that made me realize, that it's all messy indeed. Colorful bars and icons, big numbers-- all over the place, yet so close to each other. So I got to this again and decided to get rid of some details, as well as using smaller numbers to make it all look neater: Now only HP has big numbers, as it's the most important part of the HUD. I think it looks fine now, though knowing me, I'll probably end up redesigning it over and over again along with development. I was also thinking of something like this: --- buuut decided to have it all in one place. What are your thoughts? And as always, thank you for visiting!
  7. Title: Once Upon A ZeppelinAir Date: October 7, 2017 Written by: Brittany Jo FloresSynopsis: Twilight is torn when she discovers the cruise she and her family are on is actually a themed vacation experience in which ponies have paid for the privilege of spending time with her. Will she be able to please both her family and the cruise attendees? Promo Discussion Of course remember to join us at the CMC Clubhouse on Equestria.tv!
  8. Remember when Twilight became an alicorn and a bunch of people thought the show would die at season 3? This guy remembers. Hype and dread and speculation surrounding the third season's most polarizing event was so rampant that all of the threads for discussing it had to be shuttled off to their own forum — a forum which has since been archived and is no longer accessible to the public. Given the historical significance of this event, both to the show and to MLPF, those threads have been whisked into Season 3 Discussion once more. Said threads were all posted between February and December of 2013, if you want to go looking for them. If you do, it could be an interesting retrospective. And of course, feel free to post in them if your feelings about best princess Twilight's coronation have changed. THANKS, LARSON!

    Spike Breaking Twilights Heart

    Do you believe anyone else in the MLP universe could’ve broken Twilights heart the way Spike did?
  10. Sherbert MGS

    Ask Lovestruck Twilight

    Hello, I am Princess Twilight Sparkle and I'm the most lucky princess in the world! Ask me anything now excuse me while I gaze into Sherbert's eyes!
  11. In the show, I've notice that mane 6 tend to have different types of interaction with each other. For examples, Fluttershy and Rarity tend to hang together more then Rainbow and Twilight. Or Pinkie is willing to be more sensitive around Fluttershy. Is Twilight closer to A.J then the other mane 4? I ask this question because I always see the same one or two friendships talked about in the fandom, but the one between Twilight and Applejack is rarely mentioned. Note, I'm not including Spike in this since I see their relationship at a different level (more like family) and there's the history together. There are quite a bit of examples of their close friendship I've notices over a long period: Ep. 2: A.J defends Twilight from Rainbow's suspicions. Twilight is put into a despite situation and has to trust Applejack with her life. A.J was the first mentioned of the ponies that affected Twilight's view of friendship. Ep. 3: Twilight is hanging with A.J and helping her long before the Applebuck season incident. In Twi's hypothetical situation, A.J is not among those who didn't get a ticket to the gala. Applejack was first to give up her chance to go. Ep. 4: At the award ceremony, Twilight, and not the mayor, is hosting and she apparently has a lot to say on the pony. Everyone notices something's off but she's the only one of the group to visit A.J and ask about it. The others believe Twilight should help the farmpony, even as she's still new to the town. Ep. 7: A.J saves Twilight's life again and the latter gives her a thankful nuzzle. Ep. 8: Along with Rarity, A.J tries to make Twilight's sleepover a success despite her feelings on another pony. Ep. 11: Applejack's rebuke pushes Twilight to cry (first time she cried too I believe). The two share a sister-hoove bump for a job well done. Ep. 13: A.J invites Twilight to oversee the competition. When Rainbow and her laughs at Twilight entering the race, A.J tries harder to be more supportive. A.J takes Twilight's word on Rainbow and the tripping accident. Ep. 14: A.J and Twilight are hanging out together again at the beginning of the episode. Ep. 16: A.J helps Twilight out with the library but doesn't voluntary to have a spell tested on her to help Rainbow. Ep. 19: Twilight is the one who tries to save A.J when she's being pulled into the hole. S2 Ep. 1: Twilight is quick to find Applejack in the maze. S2 Ep. 2: When Twilight asks the others if they cared, Liar-AJ says "no". Going out to the edge of town, Twilight goes to fight for A.J's friendship first. In AJ's memory flashback, there are more images of her and Twi then with any other one pony. A.J is the only one to ask for forgiveness after turning back. S2 Ep.4: Even as she's afraid, Applejack is quick to help Twilight with Luna. S2 Ep.6: A.J goes to Twilight for help on her sister. S2 Ep.7-8: The two of them comment on Rainbow's antics privately. S2 Ep.10: Of her friends, Twilight goes to A.J, and not Fluttershy, for help on an out of control dragon. S2 Ep.14: After running, Twilight is furthest out on the platform as A.J's train departs. She questions A.J and leaves the assembly line first to get information on what happened. And Twilight's first to try to cheer A.J up as the truth finally comes out. S2 Ep.15: Applejack confines in Twilight about her worries and the latter checks up on her through the episode. Even being at different ends of the cider making assembly line, both collapse next to each other and share a congratulation on their hard work. S2 Ep.25: Applejack is the one who congratulates Twilight on her brother's wedding and comes up with the P.F.F lingo (pony friends forever). On the train, Applejack goes up to Twilight, trying to comfort her about what's been upsetting her and pushes her to talk to Shining Armor. Twilight is hanging with A.J first during the wedding preparation. S2 Ep. 26: Twilight saves A.J during the fight, taking just her word that she's not a changeling. The only one who apologizes to Twilight for not believing in her is Applejack. S3 Ep. 1: A.J embraces Twilight after the "wasn't prepared for it" song. S3 Ep. 5: Applejack tries, unsuccessful, to stand up to Trixie to bring Twilight home. S3 Ep. 9: AJ knows how to break Twilight out of her study stump and thinks she scared her for moving one of the ink pots. S3 Ep. 13: A.J is first to recognize Twilight during the changing and walks up to her first after her transformation. She's the closest of the mane 6 to the center of the crowning ceremony. Twilight actually makes A.J cry for a good reason. Movie (not spoiler because it was on the first preview): Right as things start, A.J's by Twilight's side talking about the whole princess deal as the others are literally going off in different directions. Other things I've noted: - Even as Twilight's the unofficial leader, she defers a lot to A.J and lets A.J take charge at times and order her around (example: getting Fluttershy up the mountain, the Parasprite plan, in the Diamond dog cave, leading the recuse into the west, sending her to her brother, the Timberwolf plan). - Half of Applejack episodes have Twilight really stepping up above the others to help out AJ. - Unless she's literally half across Equestria, A.J is always a part of Twilight's group plans. Any one or two of the examples above won't mean much, but together I think they paint a different picture of this friendship. So, do you think A.J is Twilight's best friend? If you agree that she is, what have you notices before this? Is Twilight AJ's best friend too? If you don't agree, who do you see as more likely to be Twilight's best friend? Or, how do you see the relationships between the others and Twilight? ---
  12. HELLO THERE! Today we have the TWILIGHT DAY! Some of you may remember, that I said I have an idea for this day, that I'll make something silly. So here it is! A minigame with our beloved Twilight and her favorite activity! (apparently shooting at books ) I have to admit, that I kind of failed. I didn't manage to implement many, many features I've planned, so it ended up being pretty basic. There are many things I'd like to polish - add animations here and there, but well.... At least the game works, hopefully! I'm not sure when I started the project- 4 days ago? or something around this.. So consider this as a silly little project - feels like game jams / other little contests. But hey! At least I finally released something! Okay, so first have a sceenie! Your objective is to, let's say, sort the books that are thrown at you. Shoot the books with magical projectiles to put them on the shelf! Don't let EVEN A SINGLE BOOK fall to the ground. This is what Twilight doesn't like and she'll give up as soon as she'll see one on the ground. (it will be game over, that is) Here are some details: You need to shoot the books with projectiles of the same color. For example, use RED spell for RED books. Using incorrect colors will have no effect. Each book takes 4 hits to go to the shelf. Switch spells with [A / S] keys or [MOUSE WHEEL]. I wanted to put these keys on the screen, like I did with Rainbow icon to the right, but I really had no time to get back to it. Rainbow Dash is here to help you! Wait for her to charge up and hit the [Q] key to let her wreck whatever possible! Putting a whole line of books on the shelf will advance you to the next level, where books will be thrown more frequently. You also get more score for those. In case you didn't notice, the level is written on the scroll and the score is written on the books; look to the left. And that's all I suppose. If you'll encounter any bugs, let me know! I'm not sure if I'll be working on it further, but I do have some ideas for more and more features. I'll see how it goes. PLEASE, before you'll get to this, read the following, that may save you some troubles. Press [LEFT ALT] and [ENTER] to switch between FULLSCREEN and WINDOWED mode. I wanted to add menu with options, but I ran out of time. Press [R] to RESTART the game. There's no warning, it is instant. I'M REALLY SORRY, BUT THERE'S NO PAUSE MENU. I ran out of time. Pressing [ESC] will SHUTDOWN the game without a warning /!\ DOWNLOAD Direct Attachment You need to be logged in to be able to download. EXE: The Bookhorse.exe (5.86 MB) RAR: The Bookhorse.rar (4.99 MB) Google Drive EXE: The Bookhorse.exe (6 MB) RAR: The Bookhorse.rar (5 MB) Choose your preferred format; An .exe installation file or an compressed .rar file. Both versions of the game are the same, so in the end it doesn't matter which one you'll download. System Requirements Operating System: Windows Around 10MB of free space on the hard drive. That's a lot! Not sure about the rest of stuff. the game is lightweight, so it shouldn't be really demanding. Please notify me about any issues you'll bump into, if any. On this day you can interact with Twilight, so why not have fun with her in the game? Feel free to share scores! Maybe it's not as good as I planned, but it was going to be silly anyway. Either way at least I managed to get to the playable state.

    Twilights Friendship School

    Doesn't it seem odd to anypony else that ponies and other creatures need to go to a school and be taught about a basic concept like friendship? And before the school then how did anypony get along and form bonds with others?

    Pony Restoration Pt. 1

    Was going to post this as a status, but I think it works better as a blog topic. Okay, so I started my little restoration project on those ponies I got from a Goodwill auction, starting with the Build-a-Bear Twilight. Here’s her mane at the moment... If I gave her an eyepatch and headband, I could make her into Future!Twi from It’s About Time! XD But yeah, that’s what her tail looked like too, but with a comb and a bowl of water and fabric softener, her tail currently looks like this... Still frizzy, but absolutely better. And some of y’all might remember that I said I got a surprise Gen 3.5 pony from that auction... *shivers* It’s not something I’d have ever knowingly purchased, but now that I’ve got her, I thought it might be fun to try making a custom out of her. I’m thinking a Celestia figure. Because I can never have enough of those. XD I think this’ll be a fun little thing to pass the time with. Hopefully I can get all these cuddly little ponies looking new again!

    What if Starlight Initially Won?

    What would happen if Starlight won while in equality village?
  17. Sorry if there's too much stuff about G-5 flying around already, but...well... So...yeah, the leaked G-5 information inspired this fanfiction; I took what little I knew and tried building a story with it that introduces newer versions of the mane six to each other. I could use some feedback on it; please let me know what you think: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12852499/1/Brand-New-Day I'm considering doing another one of these with a few changes to the plot, the worlds, and what it means to be and earth pony.
  18. After twilight became a princess in season 3, Twilight literally became the 4th ever princess in Equestria. She is now royalty and have authority, but in episodes like Rarity takes Manehattan, not only was no pony showing respect to her, they didn't even realize she was a princess! Now, I understand she doesn't want to be "special", but how could no one recognize a princess? and one more thing. Suri Polomare in that episode was the most disgraceful and parasitical kind of being. they present the kind of character that is what drags our world down, and even though I disliked the bullies back in ponyville, Suri is a whole new picture and makes even the bullies look amateur. I don't understand why twilight didn't step in and do something, this is a Monarchy (since its ruled by royalty) and I bet mighty princess twilight who saved Equestria - twice - could have done just something to punish her.

    Twilight Privacy

    If Twilight lived in the local public library, does mean she had Random people walking around her house looking for books to check out all day? Was she the librarian when she lived in the library? Or did the actual librarian have keys and just let herself in every morning? So many privacy concerns!

    Season 7 finale

    Greetings dear brony community, I'm new here so I don't know if this topic has been around here (probably has been but I'd like to hear your opinions) So my question is, what do you think about the season 7 finale, called shadow play pt1 and 2? I really liked the finale, loved the fact that they've brought Starswirl back, and his element called sorcery..The name of the element itself amazes me. I also loved that the whole season 7 has been similar to the season 4, meaning that you had to pay attention to the previous episodes to actually understand what's going on. I'm refering to the episodes where every pony from the mane 6 got a duty and needed to spawn the pillars of old equestria. Also no matter how Starswirl intelligent was he still learned his lesson of friendship (according to the ending of the 26th episode).
  21. So that scene when Twilight snaps at Pinkie... I keep seeing A LOT of people saying that the scene bugs them. I figured it's worth discussing. Think about it; Twilight DOES NOT DO WELL with FAILING or F@#&ing things up. Now add on top of that the fact the princesses are stone and it seems more likely by the minute that she's going to be next. Then bye bye Equestria. She also really doesn't know what to do anymore at that point in the movie. As their journey has been going on, friendship seems more and more to be an Equestria only thing. So she's backed into a corner and now it seems like her friends are starting to go against her too... BOOM- Involuntary magic reflex. I found the scene fine- But I actually think they could have gone a little further. There could have been more of a magic buildup. She could have been walking more towards Pinkie (with Pinkie crouching down more) and then when she was just about to "zap" her, Rarity could have stepped in, forming a magic shield or something and then yelling at Twilight. I think it would have taken the scene up a notch. I don't think it would have really "realistically" (aka beyond the TV Y rating) been out of character for Twilight given the circumstances. I also think it would have been an even more powerful scene when Twilight realized what almost happened. Too Dark? So what did you think of the scene? Did they go too far? Did you think it was fine? Should they have handled it differently?
  22. If any of the Mane Six showed up in your house,how would you explain it to your parents/coltfriend/marefriend?
