Character Creator Now Available!

Aug 03
Hello Everyone!

If you take a look over at our media page, you'll see that we've released our character creator! The character creator is also in alpha, and we'll be adding more manes and tails to it as we develop the game!

Please note:
The character creator works on most browsers, however, if you do not have the Unity plug-in it should be linked from the page, or you can find it here
The Unity plug-in does not work with Linux, therefore the character creator will not be available to those with Linux at this time.
Saving is only for the current session. If you close the page, you will lose your work. This will change in the future.

If you want to see the character creator in fullscreen, right click the plug-in and select fullscreen!

You can check it out here!

The Character Creator has been updated! Your characters are now saved when you exit the app and you can export your characters' PonyCodes to share them with your friends!

Evolution of the Pony Model

Jul 20
Hello everyone! I hope you all had a great time with the open server weekend!
I'm sure you all saw our beautiful new pony models. The 3D modeler responsible for these models has always been SteveLynx. He told me that he followed these 6 simple steps to create the models:

Quote from: SteveLynx
  • Checking pics from the show for reference
  • Trying to match those with the view-angles of different reference-pics
  • Trying to copy those in 3D
  • Checking with the team
  • Applying wished changes
  • Repeat step 4-5 until step 4 doesn't have anything negative to report anymore.

Let's look at the development of the pony models so far. First, here's the front part of the pony!


As the model evolves, the face becomes more and more rounded and ears begin to perk up more. The muzzle also becomes more well-defined with the newer versions. SteveLynx's work on the muzzle and the ears can be seen much more clearly in profile view.


We also notice that the shape of the body has changed. The first 3 models have a very arched back and the fourth doesn't arch at all. The most recent model comes with a nice balance between the two! 

Lastly, let's look at a 3/4 view. Here we can see the development of the head itself. The first few models have a very large, flat forehead and as the models progress we see that the head becomes more rounded. 


Quote from: SteveLynx
The most difficult part of the pony was the head, since there's no real connection between side- and front-view and since the ponies are shadeless there's not even fake-3d you could use as reference

SteveLynx has done some amazing work on these models, and he deserves loads of praise. He plans to continue his 3D modeling work with Legends of Equestria and aspires to one day make a perfect 3D pony model that can be used by everyone. If you ever see SteveLynx on the forums, don't forget to tell him that he's awesome!
