Legends of Equestria is now recruiting and REMINDERS!

Jan 24

Hello everyone!

I would like to remind you all that we are opening the servers in 5 days, on the first minute of the 24th, EST!
THE GAME WILL BE AVAILABLE TO DOWNLOAD ON THE 23rd, BUT THE SERVERS WILL NOT BE OPEN UNTIL THE 24th AT 12:01 AM Eastern Standard Time. This is so you can start playing the minute the servers open and everyone can have enough time to download the game.

PLEASE REMEMBER that you must be registered on our forums in order to access the game once the servers open. It is more likely that you will have a secure spot in the game if you register before the 24th. You register at: http://forum.legendsofequestria.com/index.php?action=register

Also, Legends of Equestria is now recruiting!

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, 3D Modelers/Animators, Texture Artists, Public Relations, Server Managers, Programmers, and Web Designers. All applicants must be at least 16 years of age.

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 My Little Pony fan art.

ANIMATORS and MODELERS
To apply for the 3D team, please email [email protected] with links to examples of your skills. Any additional unrelated, high quality designs you have done helps too. Applicants must have working knowledge of 3D modeling and/or animating and be willing to learn, design critically, and give and take critique. It is preferred that applicants have a specialty in organic modeling, 3D animation and rigging, terraforming, or any combination thereof. Please include how much time you are able to devote to Legends of Equestria, as well as a list of programs that you use.

TEXTURE ARTISTS
Applicants must be able to produce textures and graphics in the style of the show, have experience working with color, an adequate amount of time they are willing to devote to Legends of Equestria, and a willingness to follow directions from their team leaders. Experience in unwrapping and texturing models is favorable, but not required. In order to apply for a texture artist position, please email [email protected] and [email protected] with examples of your work, and a description of your skills/experience in digital art. Examples of environmental and architectural work are preferable. Please also list the programs you use within the email, as well as the reason you are interested in joining Legends of Equestria.

Please note that extensive fan fiction or creative writing work does not consist of the type of materials that I am looking for.

MAP/LEVEL DESIGNERS
Map/ 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.

Getting the game, how to play and fun things to do!

Jan 23

Hey there! Are you excited to play Legends of Equestria?

Here's what you'll need to get started!

System Requirements
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
  • An okay graphics card. If the computer is made after 2007, you'll be fine. The bare minimum would probably be 128 MB vram, DirectX9.0c/OpenGL2.0
  • 1.5 gigabytes of hard drive space
  • OS: Windows, Mac OSX, or Linux

Downloading the Game
Here is the Google Drive folder containing all of the game builds at the moment. We will continue adding to this folder throughout the day.


Please note that when you click on an icon, the "error" is just for the file preview. Click on the Download button in the lower right.

You must have the newest game version downloaded in order to get all our brand new features! If you have an older game version from a previous open server weekend, it will not work!

Disclaimer: Downloading game files from other sites may be unsafe. They may contain viruses.

Please remember, the servers will be opening Friday. This is just to get the game early. You will not be able to login or play until Friday.

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, Unicorns have Rainbow Fields, and Pegasi have Dual Cyclone! 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.


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.)
