Rules


All code will be released under GPLv3 http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl.html

Step 1

 

The Art
http://ddhyuugaman.deviantart.com/art/Mane-6-Angles-Critics-Edition-343651116
Here something I commissioned. The SVG files are broken but someone is working on fixing it.
We will create original characters using this.Use Inkscape to make vector art.
After you have created the art in Inkscape port it using the SIF exporter extension for Inkscape http://www.synfig.org/cms/en/download/tools/

 

Step 2
How is this game going to made?

 

Sprite animation


We will be using the Stickman template  for this project. Here is  tutorial series for the Stickman http://morevnaproject.org/2012/02/01/stickman-tutorial/

 

Also here is a tutorial for creating good sprites http://gamasutra.com/view/news/176663/5_tips_for_making_great_animations_for_2D_games.php

The Engine

We will be using a custom engine for the game available here https://github.com/jubilee145/APFG

Goal

  1. Animate a Walk Cycle Using Synfig
  2. Make Pegasus Fly(Annoying.)
  3. 1 Magical Attack. Fireballs from Unicorn head.
  4. Idle animation.
  5. Jump Attack.
  6. Animate a trot and run cycle.


What we need

  1. Programmers
  2. Vector Artists
  3. Thats it.


Current Time-line.

  • We currently have to wait for the next stable version of Synfig.You can make the process faster by helping them.Go here to help http://www.synfig.org/forums/
  • They need Developers, packagers, bug testers, translators, artists, web developers, wiki writers... you can contribute!

 

  • We also have to wait for the SVGS file to be fixed and for a new improved version of the model sheets.
  • The Stickman improved version with character template is not released so we have to wait for it.Here is how it looks

 

After the improved Stickman is released we have to make a Stickman for 4 legged creatures.

Things to do right now.

 

The ability to dock un-dock Synfig windows is important.We need someone to program it.

 

A pony creator like thing for Synfig to store all the assets is also important. http://generalzoi.deviantart.com/art/Pony-Creator-Full-Version-254295904 .We also need someone to program something like that.

Suggestions and Questions are recommended since I am lazy.

I find it rather odd that this 2-D pony fighter came about immediately after Mane 6 was forced to stop production on their 2-D pony fighter.

Its not released its work in progress. We right now have sprites that can be used to create the ponies and animate them. The SVG files need to be fixed. Someone is working on that.

Just so you're aware, it's very likely the same thing that happened to fighting is magic will happen to you :/

Also if you both do get allowed, you'll have to have VERY high quality ad original work, or you're gonna get passed over by Fighting is magic :/

It will contain no copy righted characters. So there should be no problem. At least I think there should not be any problems.

Oops didn't see that.. hmm

Yeah I guess that could work :P

Even still people will want to see MLP characters, so unfortunately  it probably won't be as popular as fighting is magic. Al the same, I'll follow the project, and see what comes of it :)

This is what i love about this fandom, even though Fighting is Magic was only just shut down there's still awesome fans that want to go straight back out there and start working on something new.

Good sir you are an asset to the fandom and i wish you the best of luck during development.

It would be extremely very awesome if you could help me spread the word about it this project or give me some tips on how to spread the word about it. The fixed models I hope will come by this weekend hopefully in less than 3 days..

...Why not? :P

:3

Oh and on the subject of how to spread the word:

Get on all the social media websites you can. Make sure each of them links to each other. Update constantly, and also, if possible, get a somewhat official website (this should also have all social media links, and be linked to by all you social media accounts)

Also, professionalism is important (at times) but you also have to be relateable and likeable.If I think of other thangs, I'll give yall a shout :P

Here is a preview of the fixed version http://sta.sh/2137w6p4nbos
AJ and Twi's marks are courtesy of ~aruigus808 - http://aruigus808.deviantart.com/art/Apple-Jack-s-Cutie-Mark-vector-316443293 and http://aruigus808.deviantart.com/art/Twilight-Sparkle-Cutie-Mark-vector-316443598 . Rarity's mark was made by *Catnipfairy - http://catnipfairy.deviantart.com/art/Rarity-s-Cutie-Mark-309853910 .

Fixed Pinkie Pie,Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash here

Improved version coming next week.

 

By creating a base version we will be able to make original characters of this body type.

I think they  can now be used in animations making them the first animatable pony model sheet. Not even double rainboom has done that yet.



I Could really use a motivational speech right now to work better.A deadline to work faster or something also might help alot.



 

Need a little motivation/encourgaement while I do the extremely boring work of layering the ponies in Inkscape after that we will be able to create a lot of original OCs for this project.

Presenting APFG newest characters Fate Seeker and Destiny Gazer
 Fate Seeker and Destiny Gazer by Ak74smith http://ak47smith.deviantart.com/
Drawing done by Staticwave12
http://staticwave12.deviantart.com/art/Fate-Seeker-and-Destiny-Gazer-361528756?q=gallery%3Astaticwave12&qo=0

FateSeeker
FateSeeker is generally shy and keeps things to himself, but he's easy to get along with and is open with friends close to him. At times, he gets smug and cocky once his ego inflates. He has the ability to distinguish anypony's soul of either being good or evil. Detecting a good soul will cause his angel wing to light up, and evil souls would cause the demon wing to be enshrouded in a dark-purple aura. His horn can also cast spells, pick up items with telekinesis, and can even create anti-matter platforms to step on for levitation/flying purposes.

DestinyGazer is the Rule 63'd version of FateSeeker
