Heya! I'm the 3D artist and Unreal programmer for Equestrian Terrors! I'm also the character artist for the Half-life 2 mod "The Flood: Shadows of a Dark Past".
Be sure ya check out both projects, cause we're going to make 'em great!
Thanks for the support, man!
Hahahaha thank you
Thanks! It's multiplayer only right now, although I've got a pretty good idea of how I'd go about scripting the bots.
We're trying to get this done as soon as possible as it is, so bots would probably be in an update or something when I get a chance to mess with 'em.
Thanks, man, we really appreciate it!
If you want to discuss it or something you can catch me, Shine, or Laughter at www.friendshipismagic.org or our new forum www.witchatwinstudios.com
Hahaha the gameplay is really hectic as it is. The vehicles flip like you wouldn't believe, people blowing up everywhere, it's pretty silly. Those 3 laps are brutal!
I hope you guys enjoy screwing around with it as much as we did along with the play-testers!
Hahahaha I know what you mean. Thanks for the support, man!
Haha yup it's been bothering me for a while now. Going to finally get it done.
Good to hear from you, man!
This looks absolutely amazing!
Can't wait to play it!
Yeah, man! Make sure you join up at our newer much fancier site!
Hah, yeah me and Switch are terrible procrastinators. Raze has really helped push the project back together. He's been a fantastic help and organizer! We've got the full level re-blocked out already with checkerboard textures in the Unreal 4 engine, and we're going to start play-testing after I model out a couple of the enemies.
Thank you all for your patience!
We're working really hard to meet the deadline, but it's starting to seem pretty ambitious. We've gotten so much done in these past 3 weeks that I can safely say no later than mid-November, but I'd rather not be a GabeN if I don't need to be, as lovable as he is.
We'll keep workin' away at it, and I can't wait to see your play-throughs!
Hahaha yeah, sorry about the wait. Thanks for sticking with us! You won't be disappointed~
Also we've got a new website set up. If you register you might get early access as a beta tester!
Yeah, that'd probably be a good idea. Might as well put in as many places as possible.
Yes. Also some time in October, I promise. It's about time I push this first episode out. I've done way too much on this already to let it sit around as much as it has.
I've got tons of ideas for the next episode too.
Thanks for staying with us!
Hahaha most of it seems very do-able. It all just comes down to time I suppose.
Talk to ya soon, man.
Nice job on that last song by the way~
Hopefully I'll catch ya on Steam one of these days, eh?
Free of charge, my good sir! There will never be any plans to make this game cost money, I promise you that.
Glad you're lookin' forward to the release as much as we are!
They weren't before, I just changed them and reuploaded the image when you weren't looking xD
Hahaha Oh yes.
I don't know what you mean! The eyes ARE darker!
I would never change it when you weren't looking. What kind of person would I be if I did that?
Et tu, Oshii?
Speaking of feedback, add me on steam, man!
I'm still with ya when you need me. Can't wait to see what you've been workin' on!
@Sleufoot Yeah, I've been thinking you're probably right. We'll go ahead and do something like that as an extra precaution. We'll talk about it a bit later.
But trust us when we say they'll still be recognizable. We're not talking OC status here, but you should probably expect some small silly changes.
As for licensing, for UDK if it was free you could distribute it however you wanted with no license, but it's a bit different for Unreal 4. I paid the $19 to get early access, but I only really skimmed the license agreement. My understanding is that you can make whatever you want and you just pay royalties if you sell the product, which we're not going to do anyway.
If that changes, I don't mind paying the $99 for an indie license, I've got the money. Even in that case I would still make the game free. Basically we're not going to have any Unreal licensing issues.
Haha nothing it was a stupid Smite reference.
And thank you!
Please redirect your attention to one picture over here
Well, yeah, you know, I'm probably along the lines of what Bastet was before the last update. Not a good god at all. I'll let you know when I've reached Kali status though.
But better 3D ponies is exactly what I'm going to aim for, nonetheless, I can tell ya that much.
Also this picture has nothing to do with anything.
First off, thank you, yes I know, I am a 3d GOD!
Sure, I'll darken her eyes a bit. I meant to make 'em purple but you're right they are too pink in the middle. I'll look into those eyelashes too, I just kinda copied them over from the Pinkie model.
Funny story about that, I was actually hoping to use this one for both, but really that's a dumb idea. It'd be a nightmare trying to get it to look right both ways, and animating it that way would be just as bad, so I'll shorten up her arms and make this one the bipedal model and make a quadruped one later. Not to mention with arms that long it just looks bad.
Also to be honest I really don't like the Source engine models, otherwise I'd be copying the hell out of their style. I don't like the way their faces just kinda become their noses. It looks strange. There's gotta be a better way.
Thanks for your input! Stick with us, eh?
