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!
A couple new questions have been added to the FAQ! We encourage you to hop over there and see if these may answer any questions that you might have. As always, you can ask more questions by contacting us through our form or on our Discord server.
After some time, a new development progress video is finally out! In this one, you will see our newly implemented shaders for the game (which are still WIP), as well as some new objects and even a simple time progression system in working order. There’s still a lot to go before we are able to implement ponies, however. We’re also working on a new UI for the game to provide a better experience for the player. As always, we’ll keep you posted on the latest going on with the development of The Ponies.
We’ve been working on lots of things recently for this game, so there’s too much that can be shown in just one picture (that’s why we’ll use a video for that eventually!). However, we can currently share with you our newly implemented shaders for the game. Though still a work-in-progress, they certainly make the game fun to look at – even in pre-alpha!
