August 2019 Progress Update

This will just be a very quick update, but we’d like to assure you that the game is still coming along! We’ve been a little more quiet lately as we’ve been hard at work on several features, which we’d like to announce as one big surprise eventually.

 

Stick around to get the latest on the project, don’t hesitate to ask questions, and also join our Discord server! (Before you ask any questions though, be sure to check the FAQ).

Character Modeling Position Open!

We have a new position open on the team! We’re looking for a skilled hobbyist character modeler who can help in creating pony models for the game. Note that The Ponies is a hobby/passion project, so work is unpaid but is highly credited and you can work at your own pace with a motivated and fun team! If you would like to apply, contact us here or let us know in our Discord server here.

New CAP Prototype Available!

Check it out here: http://dev.theponies.org/techdemotest/

We know what you’re thinking: “Finally… something we can play with!“. And that’s right! We now have a Create-a-Pony prototype available for everybody to play around with. Keep in mind that since it is just a prototype, no complex editing features are implemented yet, and the only main features of this version are color customization and flank mark import tools. Also, you’ll notice that the pony model in this is a bit… off… but also kind of cute! Well, she’s just a placeholder for now (and actually serves as a plushie in the game), and we’ll eventually get more proper pony models ready. Of course, this version of CAP is just the tip of the iceberg (and a good iceberg at that!), and we plan to gradually turn this into something great!
