Legends of Equestria is Now Recruiting!

Aug 06
EDIT: This list is out-of-date! Our latest hiring information can be found here: http://forum.legendsofequestria.com/index.php?topic=16286

Hello, everyone! Once again we're looking for new talent to join the Legends of Equestria team!

If you're interested in game development, passionate about ponies, or simply need a hobby which will put your talents to use, please feel free to send us an email! We are currently accepting applications for the following departments: Concept Artists, Level Designers, Script Implementers, VFX Artists, 2D Artists, 3D Character Animators, Human Resources, and Programmers [last updated September 21th, 2016]. All applicants must be at least 16 years of age.

Here are some guidelines for applying:

Concept Artists
Applicants must be comfortable drawing building exteriors, interiors, environmental art, and creatures in the style of the show. In order to apply for a concept artist position, please email [email protected]. Your email should consist of a link to your online portfolio, your Skype username, your primary email address, the amount of time you're able to devote to Legends of Equestria, and your reason for wanting to join the project. Please note that your portfolio should include something other than pony-related fan art.

Script Implementers
Script Implementers are responsible for transitioning written content into technical scripts readable by the servers, placing NPC's and mobs, and adding items. Applicants for this position should have a basic understanding of scripting or coding logic and an ability to debug errors. Potential implementers should be able to devote several hours each week to game work. If interested, please send applications to [email protected].

3D Character Animators
Applicants must be skilled in using Maya to create 3D character animations focusing heavily on quadrupeds.  Plus a willingness to learn.
In your application, please include how much time you are able to volunteer, your age, as well as links to examples of your work. Email attachments will not be accepted. Applicants should have a minimum of 5 examples including a walk cycle.
If you're interested, please follow the guidelines above and send your application to [email protected]

Design:
-Level Designer (a main focus right now!)
Level designers should have drawn work (hand or digital) of macro or micro scale level designs which factor in standard gaming conventions such as pathing, points of interest, mob spawns, elevation, framing, terrain features, quest potential, etc. Previous experience in a 3D engine (Unity, Unreal) is highly sought after. Map/level designers should expect to be trained in Unity to allow the implementation and editing of their designs. Please email [email protected] with examples of your work.

-VFX Artists (another crucial role we're looking to fill right now!)
VFX artists will primarily be in charge of creating and implementing spritesheet animations to be used for various player abilities and ambient world effects. This role will require a blending of traditional toon styled art creation and design with technical implementation in Unity (Shuriken knowledge is a HUGE plus!). If you enjoy creating particle based effects to add an extra kick of visual stimulation, this position is for you! Please email [email protected] with links to examples of your work.

2D Artists
To apply for the 2D team, please email [email protected] with a link to an online portfolio containing examples of your work.

Your portfolio should include:

- One or more textured models and texture sheets that you have created AND/OR your best environmental or architectural artwork.
- 3-5 Pieces of additional artwork that display good use of color, an ability to mimmick the art style of FiM, and good design sense.
- Any addtional works that you wish to include.

Art should be close to or of similar quality to the following works:

Textures and textured models:

Other Works:

The 2D team lead would like to see plenty of examples of environmental art or textured 3D art, moreso than 2D character work or fan art. Applicants must understand the basics of color theory, be able to mimic the art style of the environments and buildings Legends of Equestria, and be able to create vector graphics. Please state how much time you are able to devote to Legends of Equestria, and remember that you will be expected to complete at least one texture per week. Access to programs such as Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, or Flash is not necessary but would be very beneficial.

Human Resources
Legends of Equestria is looking for Human Resources specialists to be the glue of our game development process and help keep operations running smoothly and cleanly! If you are interested in becoming a part of our team and have skills in note-taking and maintaining updates, organization and databasing, and good communication skills all around, please contact [email protected] for further information on the application process.

Applicants for Human Resources must be at least 18 of years of age.

Programming
Potential programmers should be proficient in C# and the use of code to design working mechanics applicable to a 3D MMO environment. Experience and integration in Unity 3D is extremely helpful. To apply please send relevant examples of creative code design and a list of software you use/know to [email protected].

To run our game, you'll need to make sure you have the following:
  • 2 GB ram
  • Dual core processor, somewhere near 2 GHz. A single core processor works, but is not recommended

Getting to Cloudopolis
In order to get to Cloudopolis, you must travel via the airship in Cantermore!

If you're in Cantermore, travel up the cliff to the airship port and board your way onto the airship.

If you're starting in Ponydale, you must first go to the train station and travel to Cantermore, and then go to the airship port.

Getting to Cantermore
In order to get to Cantermore, you must travel via train from Ponydale or via airship from Cloudopolis!

If you're in Ponydale, you must travel via train. The train station is just past Sugarcane Corner.

If you're in Cloudopolis, go to the airport located high up and to the right of the main cloud.

Getting to Ponydale
If you'd like to visit the quaint little town of Ponydale, you must go by train from Cantermore.

If you're in Cloudopolis, go to the airport and get to Cantermore.

Once you're in Cantermore, simply go to the train station by by Astral Charm.

Questing
Plenty of NPCs (Non-Player Characters) need help with their tasks! Some give out special prizes if you lend them a helping hoof!

Go up to any NPC, right click, and select "Talk." NPCs have a "..." over their name.

Listen to what they have to say, and be sure to follow their instructions in order to move on in the quest.

At the end, you might get a reward for your kindness!

Battling
Watch out when going to the Evershade Forest! It's home to some scary monsters!

In order to defend yourself against the creatures you'll encounter, try using your special combat abilities!

Earth Ponies have Seismic Buck and Rough Terrain, Unicorns have Rainbow Fields and Magical Arrow, and Pegasi have Dual Cyclone and Gale! All three races have Ground Pound.

When ready, select a creature, a target reticule should appear. Attack the mob by getting in their range and selecting your skill.

When the enemy's health gets to zero, they'll faint! Don't worry though, I'm sure they can just walk it off.

Parties
If you want to form a party with other players, you can right-click them and add them to your party!

Parties are useful for going out and exploring. You never know when you might run into monsters, and there is always safety in numbers!

Trading
Do you have an interesting item that you'd like to give to a friend? Well, you can trade them!

Simply right click on your friend and hit "Trade." The other pony needs to accept your trade for it to continue.

Once accepted, you'll see a screen. Left click and add the item to the trading menu.

When both players are satisfied with the trade, they both must hit "Ready." When both players hit "Ready," a "Done" button will appear. Once both players hit the "Done" button, the trade will be completed.

Stuck Somewhere?
Have no fear! No need to call the moderators! Simply type /stuck or unstuck me and you will be moved to the starting point of the map. (This will not work if you are in combat.)
