Game development progress for 27-06-2012

Another week passed, so it's time for an update on the game's current status I guess...

...and boy is it a big one.

I've spent the last 4 days downloading vectors. No seriously, I have pretty much 10GB straight vectors of pretty much every character, many objects, scene backgrounds etc. on my hard disk right now, all in very high resolution PNGs.
Why would anyone do that? Well, I'm not going to just sit around hoping for a miracle (someone) that will probably never come to do the work for me, so I'll just have to play around with copy-pasting things on layers, hoping the result will be able to represent SOMETHING decent.

...and I found a really cool way to show scenes. Instead of just a dialog box, I'll just SHOW it along with a dialog box, and I'll use a comic-style pop-up panels rather than just a picture being shown.
It's kind'a hard to explain but once I get to it I'll show a screenshot and you'll see...and most likely LOVE it.


Other than that, ponyville's design is pretty much complete. I'm more or less satisfied with the maps' looks for now, so I'll start working on the other areas this week (not that many in total).

And last, but most certainly not least, I've done some pretty heavy modding on the engine...and I've actually fulfilled one of YOUR requests!
Many people PMed me saying "add a gallery" option...well, you'll have one. Once you see a scene, being it non-rule 34 or rule 34, you'll be able to view the scene's picture again from the menu! (just like in some Japanese novel games)
The battle system was changed to a more "suitable" one, better options menu is used, character status bar can be shown at all times, the core game resolution was modded from 5**x4** to 640x480...and some other minor things.

Depending on what I manage to do the next few days I'll see if I can show you some screenshots or a video of the current state.

Help is still wanted. What can you do to help (any of the listed this is greatly appreciated):
- provide me vector art, being it complete ponies or just parts for rule 34 scenes
- draw the rule 34 scenes
- put me in contact/link me to a place where I might find help with the above mentioned things I need help with

WHY IT'S IMPORTANT: well, no rule-34 material to work with means I'll just attempt to use non-rule34 vectors and attempt to make it LOOK like rule34 even-though you won't see anything that is actually for adults (like when you remove the censor on The Sims, you don't actually see anything).

I also pretty much have enough ideas for rule 34 scenes...but you can still share your ideas about character dialog or non-rule 34 scenes!


Well, that's it for now I guess, thanks for reading, your comments/thoughts are always welcome in the comments/PMs.

If you contact me with details on what it is you are looking for I can possibly draw a few pictures for you, though unfortunately my Pony art is not perfect (though I keep trying to improve.) But I can't animate worth beans so probably all I can do is still frame pictures. Also, keep in mind that if possible I prefer drawing anal, and my favorite characters (thus are more likely for me to be willing to draw) are Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Twilight Sparkle, and the CMC, though I am possibly open to draw others as well.

Well, it's kind'a hard to explain the exact idea in my head...I'm hoping to have a sample up by next week's update (if not it'll be the week after for sure)...I'll take a note and send you a PM once I have a sample of a scene ^_^

Okay then, I'll see what I can do then I guess.

would you like me to spread the message? just say the word and I'll put a notice up on tumblr, live-streams anywhere else you think it would be worth putting a notice up?

:ARTIST WANTED: (or something along those lines)

Advertising is always cool to have ^_^
Though I'd go more along the lines of "this project could use a little help" with a link to the latest posted journal or something like that (since saying "artist wanted" may leave people thinking of "commission work" which I cant really afford o.o )

But yeah, feel free to link stuff all over the place if you feel like it, that's still a lot of help...the more people know about something the better chance for it to be successful ^_^

I sed to be able to at leat create a reasonable duplication on screen using a mouse with pixel basing paint programs, of cartoon characters, anthro example being Buster Bunny, human character being Tara Boumdea from 1st season AOTKT, but for some reason, maybe far too many years, been trying a couple ponies for generalisation.. screwed.
