• Nightly Roundup #361

    I got this game a few days ago and as soon as the professor started talking I started picturing this.

    Pony RPG

    Current working title 'Journey'

    When I first started it was going to be a turn based RPG, the only thing I wanted was armor that would change to show what you have on while matching to the animation... Well I did that but soon got inspired.

    So now I have a random generating map with a battle system that takes alot of inspiration from Diablo III (Wasn't on purpose at first, but I rolled with it)

    My plans are along these;

    Stage 1 - Make the forest more rounded - more enemies, items, unique location items.
    Add some more attacks and make the level/stat system more important.
    Stage 2 - Will be to make the map go to a new area, so more enemies and items, etc.
    Stage 3 - Different Classes, Got Unicorn and Nature already lined up, with flight being a choice for Warrior and Nature. 
    Pipe dream is to have the anti stealth class - Party Pony!

    All this so far has been made by me alone, all my own art and work but I do like the idea of letting people loose on armor design or just hearing ideas @DrLonePony

    Tracing Tutorial

    I’ve been helping ATC from the Ask the Crusaders ask blog (http://ask-thecrusaders.tumblr.com/) a lot recently by tracing props for use in his new animation.  I’ve been doing that for about two weeks straight and I thought I’d make a recording of me describing what I was doing while tracing out a tree for the video using vector art.

    I know you guys like these kinds of things, so I thought I’d tell you about it.

    I made this using Flash CS 5.5

     KCOLT Brony Radio

    In the cold lands of Canada there is an awesome radio station that is gaining popularity. KCOLT Brony Radio is solely ran by Bass Clef, a brony that paid out of pocket to start his own online radio station for the enjoyment of fellow bronies and pegasisters. He has a library of nearly 200 brony artists that covers everything from dubstep to sweet, sweet metal. So if you like to listen to some awesome music and chat with some great people (he also has contests every now and then), go to http://kcoltbrony.om.cm and have a blast! Like on Facebook too!

    Successful Meetups


    Soooo anyway, the meet up happened on June 16th in the Waldorf pub, in Piccafilly, Manechester, where a total of around 60+ bronies and pegasisters turned up! It started at 12 noon and went on til 7pm, eeyup, 7 hours of pony related fun! We spent some time getting to know each other, then we did some stuff

    Some stuff we did:
    Pony quiz (Winners: Team Marebucks)
    30 minute art challenge
    watched a few episodes
    Pony Karaoke!
    Art auction ( http://minus.com/mblHG7Hopp/3 and Clay Discord auction video http://youtu.be/YEoEVWQbYPk )
    Sang "Smile Smile Smile" along with a eukelele player http://youtu.be/3xSMXfC7qPY
    And, at some point we ruined (or enhanced?)  WoodenToaster's "Rainbow Factory" http://youtu.be/ZSruKwEs-SM

    Of course, a Brony meet up wouldn't be complete without the obligatory group photo (attached)
    Here are some more photos too http://minus.com/mlrSfqjdb/

    Afterwards, most people had left, so the rest of us went to the pub and had a few beers, and reflected on how awesome the day was

    Thanks to Cheesey Burger for organising this, and his brother "Fancy Pants" Dan for helping, Mush, Firenze and Shaunnnnnnnnn for the music, everyone who brought art for the auction, people who drew pictures and stuff for other people, and of course, everypony that turned up and made it such a fantastic meet up!

    Here's what everypony else thought http://ukofequestria.co.uk/threads/manechester-16th-june-photos-videos-feedback.2741/

     Yesterday i learned that Brony-Meetups can be very fun, especially when you sight one Brony after the other.
    Then finally we met all together in front of the location at 2 PM.
    We had a lot of fun at our small meeting and at NipponCon which was a Anime Con we took as the place to meet.
