Progress is slow and steady...Ponyville is nearing completion terms of map design...I'm trying to figure out what the boundary for the alpha test should be...and certain maps will be pretty small (or completely excluded in the first releases) such as Everfree forest due to their design being more complex yet involving next to nothing except minor combat or some item gathering.
BIG CHANGE: some of you might remember how I said that there will be multiple playable characters (one selected at the start)...yeaaah...it'll be just Twilight Sparkle and Spike. I'm not considering any other options and I doubt I ever will...why? Mostly because I doubt I'll even have the material required for those 2, let alone for even more. My original idea was to have those 2 and a "nameless pony" with selectable species (unicorn, pegasus or earth pony) but just the amount of art required for that is next to absurd unless I take "paying for it" as an option, which I don't.
That's kind'a all I can say for now, this is a short update, maybe I'll post another one later this week ifI make some progress.
ARTISTIC HELP WANTED:
Art style: show-style / vector(?) Types of scenes: clean / rule 34 (background is optional in both cases since I got my hands on a lot of them) Details: for clean scenes I have a chance to do things myself since many people on deviantART provide a lot of pre-made vectors that might fit most of my ideas...but for any rule34 scenes, I'm completely useless. If anyone wants to help with either of those (give more expression to the characters in the clean scenes or provide rule34 ones), please contact me.
