MLP:FiM Flash Game – Tech Demo, Customizing Ponies

The MLP:FiM Flash Team in hopes to let everyone know they are not head and the project moves forward at a constant rate has released another video.  This time its just an example from animator PBnFlash (PBnPony) talking about how once the sandbox edition is released, how you can easily change and edit the characters so you can insert your own OC into the game.  Of course some flash knowledge is easy, but there will be instructions on how to do this, you just need Adobe Flash.

And as the end of the video reminds you, there is a story contest going on, you can click here and read the details from the original post.

This seems to be the news of the day, I was planning on posting this up later tonight but since its such a hot topic, might as well recast it over here at the DH.  A brony by the name of Mbulsht has written an open letter to the FiM fanbase about the general state of things, namely attitude and how we treat one and another.  Its a good read, you may or may not agree with it, you may find it a touch dramatic, but I can personally say its something I’ve pondered myself over the last couple of days, in general.

The amount of replies made my jaw dropped, I had read this letter early in the morning at the local truck stop before making my way out onto the road for work, and figured it’d garnish the usual hundred or so comments back.  Got home 10 hours later and holy crap, over 500+ comments and running.  Anyways, I do have my own opinion on things, found after the page break.

Personally I’m not a fan of using this site as a soap box for myself, at least voicing my own opinions on the community itself, its just not my thing.  But in this case, I will.  After reading this, I do generally agree on the subject that hatred has been a tad heavy lately, but at least with me, its expected.  This fanbase has grown so much, especially over these last few months, and douchebag comments are bound to happen, especially at a large hub like EqD.
But I’ve actually asked people if it was me or not that was feeling the hate.  Like Ben, I took notice to a few EqD articles and the comments that were posted.  The Synchtube was a biggie, first comment out of the gate was about the /filly channel being better, which of course started a flame war.  Of course there are trolls and there are -always- going to be these types of people around, I mean come on, its the internet.  There was others too, like the brony band Edge of Everfree.  Of course people are going to make rude comments, but I felt in that situation, it was one of those things where if you didn’t have anything good to say, don’t say it.  Those guys have massive balls to make a video like that and post it to the fanbase.
I’m not going to sit here and generate a wall of text (very capable of doing that though), but I also agree with many of the comments, such as AngryTigerP who said the show shouldn’t have to teach young adults to love and tolerate another.  This show didn’t teach me that, I was raised that way, its a good thing if it has created people to act that way, but it shouldn’t be a religion.
But with a fanbase this large, hatred is bound to happen.  The hatred towards furries has always been there, and like many, I could careless what floats your boat.  If you like clopping to ponies or dressing up like an animal, by all means do it, just don’t force your own ideals on others.
And that’s my 2 bits on the subject.  Onward and upwards.

Random person said they wished there was a clean front page for MLP:FiM, and well, no, I’m not going to be one of them.  This is called freedom of speech, and yes, I would consider this site 18+, though there is hardly anything that would call for that.  Two fun comics.

And I see someone else was thinking the same thing during this episode.
Also a brony from the RD Network named RainbowDashIsMyCoPilot sent me in a description of a fictional real world drug, call it a mini-fanfic about the bronies, but it would make a somewhat interesting story.  As said I’ll post just about anything that isn’t horrid, but I held off on this one, just because I didn’t really know how to post it alone.  Well now that we have a post on the topic of substance abuse (which we do not support but Uncle DerpySquad says RESEARCH and EDUCATE YOURSELF before attempting anything, mmm’kay, and stay away from the hardcore crap, it leads to nothing good).

Ponifedimine- an experimental new drug that causes the user to see everyone as ponies and sometimes walk on all fours and crave daisy sandwiches. Goes by the street names Pon-3 or Sparkle this drug is a new and possibly dangerous fad that is spreading among bronies. Although it is still undergoing animal testing kitchen labs have started appearing in bronie\'s houses. The drug was first introduced to the brony community by a certain individual who goes by edgeofeverfree on rainbow dash network after they stole samples from the pharmaceutical company that was testing the drug. Interestingly enough when the drug was given to ponies it made them think they were dragons, when given to dragons it made them think they were griffons, and when given to griffons it made them think they were cool. This medication was meant to be used as a decongestant.

Side note: The drug is in all of those muffins you just ate, except two for the control group. In half an hour let me know what you think and we\'ll see whether the control group should be crying over getting the control muffins.

Already been on EqD but I love these Chiptunes, total flashbacks of playing games on a Commodore 64.

Breakfast at Fluttershy’s by Squeak

And the final submission from Squeak, Breakfast at Fluttershy’s.  Keep up the good work Squeak, a few more and I’ll have to make you your own section in the Media room (once that system is updated and ready to roll).

Opening the Library by Squeak

These would actually make good video game music for each character, something about it makes me think old school Final Fantasy games, like when you’re first introduced to the characters.  Opening the Library, Twilight’s Theme.

And of course when you have Luna’s Night, there must be Celestia’s Day.
