    Brief Introduction

    Show
    MLP: Friendship Is Magic is a reboot of the MLP franchise by Powerpuff Girls artist Lauren Faust. The show's writing and production engendered a large fanbase outside of the intended target audience.

    This long-running thread is not only a place to discuss MLP, both official releases and the vast array of fanworks, but has become a mini-community in and of itself.

    > Isn't this a show for little girls?

    It's a clever show. It has excellent writing, character dynamics, humor, animation, and generally treats kids seriously rather than condescending to them. It has every right to be a 20 minute corporate committee designed infomercial, but it's not.

    > If I want to get into the show, where do I start?

    A good starting point is to watch the episodes in order. The show is available on Netflixs in many countries, but, at a pinch, can usually be found with some searching one youtube or dailymotion. Search for "Friendship is Magic Episode 1" and you should find the series pretty easily.

    Alternatively, you can ask ponythread itself for a few choice episodes; we're always happy to help!

    Ponythread New Episode Spoiler Policy
    Spoiler
    Show
    To allow everyone time to be able to catch up on a new episode, we ask that everyone please spoiler all discussion of upcoming and new episodes until at least two days after it airs. (I.e., if the new episode is on Saturday, please keep eveything in spoilers until Tuesday.

    In the case of official MLP comics, ponthread policy is to always discuss them in spoilers, on the basis that, for example, ponythreaders in the UK do not get them until some weeks later.

    I like the color on the corvette.

    Most of the ships that you have created recently seem to follow the same pattern with engines in back, bridge on top of engines and presumably weapon systems and shielding in front. Do you have any ships that radically change that paradigm?

    For example, imagine a ship that uses gravity manipulation to accelerate instead of propelling particles and relying on Newton's 3rd law. You could lock onto a large heavy interstellar object (like a sun or black hole) and pull yourself to that object. With this setup, the engines could be located anywhere on board the ship since the entire vessel would be pulled towards a target equally.

    There are also the ship designs that use sun sails although that would not be practical for a war ship.

    This is all one fleet, so it follows the same design paradigm. (Moreover, one that is similar to the Xyriat Hegemony:

    from which the Xygritt technology diverged from.)

    (And you will have seen the Wodefs and Phystyulons from the photos from the weekend.)

    The Jalyrkieons (the welsh-pony sized telekinetic carnivorous tetracorns) - more properly, I should say "Plenadian," really - use gravitonic propulsion technology (combined with effective-mass-reduction fields) primarily derivied from their telekineis and as such, do not have engines that work via emission.

    Which is about as close as you get sensibly get to that idea, because at the point you can make tractor beams with enough range to be able to pull yourself towards stellar objects, you'll have found better ways of moving through space.

    Otherwise, you need engines at the back for efficiency of movement - and most non-teleport FTL requires physical forward movement - and bridges tend to be at the top or front if visible (as on the underside, they tend not to be visible).

    For the most non-standard layout, you have the Stone Portals (though even they need engines at the back).

    The 29th prompt asked me to "redo an old piece". The second page is a redo of the following semi-old drawing that some of you good people of the Ponythread might remember.


    There was a lot of comments on the old one that the ponies looked too thin; this picture represents the height of the "Andalusian" phase of my Pony art style, and the comments influenced me to re-calibrate the body shape of my ponies into something more "fuller". The resulting style, what I call "Meto 2016", still remains more-or-less in place now, and can be seen represented in the re-do above for easy comparison.

    Is that a bustle that Twilight is wearing in the second panel? I can't really tell.

    some people have speculated that Lightning Dust was deliberately trying to get Scoots hurt to hurt Rainbow by proxy.

    I think she's enough of a sociopath but I don't think she's that actively malicious.

    I read that more as not caring about anything other than the show than actual malice. Lightning Dust may not have actively wanted Scoots to get hurt, but she didn't particularly care if she did and may have figured that it would make for a great show either way.

    Thinking about it, though, what I would have liked to see from the end is having Lightning Dust called out by the other Washouts, essentially having them point out that being reckless with their own safety is one thing but risking somepony else's being a step too far.

    Endangering Dash's friends, although not intentional, was what killed her original dream of being a Wonderbolt, so that should have been a big lesson for Lightning. I didn't think she'd allow Scootaloo to do something that dangerous, especially as a filly. If she was looking to steal Dash's fangirl, that's one thing I could buy, but endangering that fangirl didn't seem like a Lightning thing to do.

    But apparently the writer didn't think that way, so I'm left to scratch my head and dislike how this episode turned out toward the end.

    I'd say the key phrase there is that Lightning Dust getting booted out of the Wonderbolts should have been a big lesson for her. Watching the episode, I got the distinct impression that Lightning Dust saw the problem as the Wonderbolts being too cautious rather than any of the fault laying with her. As for Scootaloo, I can see Lightning Dust's though process being something along the lines of "Sure, this would be dangerous if somepony else put it together, but everything will go fine since I set it up and everything I do is awesome."

    General question for Ponythread since we have a lot of changeling fans here, why do changelings need to change their forms to get love?

    In their original buggy, not butterfly form, changelings could be quite cute. See pictures below.

    And ponies seem fairly tolerant and understanding in general. Why didn't the changelings just walk into a town and get the love from the ponies naturally? If you combine their entrance with a musical number, then they would guarantee success.

    What? Ponies are in the main skittish and xenophobic enough to support a thriving industry based around the manufacture and sale of white hoods.
    You, who have nothing at all to believe in; to you, whose motto is "money comes first;" who are you, to tell us that our lives have been wasted? That all that we've fought for has turned into dust?

    Reminds me of the fanfic story Trixie And Her Amazing Pet Changeling, where a changeling stumbles into a way to do exactly that - despite paranoid witch hunt levels of changeling phobia among the ponies.

    I have to agree with this. The ponies in the show are dumb, panicky and easily-lead fools who need dedicated academies to learn the basics of friendship. Chancellor Neighsay is explicitly seeking to impose export controls on friendship lessons lest it endanger Equestria's geopolitical dominance.

    We must hurry if we wish to win the game before we realize the game is pointless.

    Something similar, yes. It's a small ridge on her dress similar to the back end of a saddle, inspired by the use of saddles as fashion accoutrements in pony culture. It helps make her plot-line a bit more visually interesting.

    Not to mention colonialist-imperialist. Equestrian suzerainty over the known world, use of "Everypony" and "every creature", imposition of friendship lessons on foreign cultures "unable" to save themselves!

    Yeah, that's part of what bothers me as well, although I think I didn't describe it so well, possibly out of fear of crossing the forum rules, possibly because there were so many other things that bothered me about S1 E1..2, such as Twilight forcing all the Mane Six to serve as teachers. Zimmerwald put it a bit better.

    I also think it's a particularly dirty move to make the school particularly for young children.
    > Yes, and the similarities [with Camp Friendship in S7 E21] don't end there. The Friendship School is for kids too, not for adults. Apparently the Mane Six think kids are easier to indoctrinate and deal with. Just imagine the difficulties if they had to convince adults to follow the nice friendship activities they planned. me on other forum

    Oh! I see you've taken Thanqol's art criticism to your heart and are now adding detailed shading everywhere in your drawing. This final piece shows it off magnificently. You must be learning a lot from this Training Ground.

    So... Finished BATTLETECH, so now there is a choice between Age of Wonders III, Spellforce III, Endless Space II, starting a new Pillars II game (really, waiting for more bugfixes) or working out whether I can be arsed to try and make some of my C&C games work. Suggestions, recommendations?

    Don't forget the violent occupation of indigenous peoples' lands!

    Really, the whole species deserves extinction. Preserving it is an unkindness to everyone else.

    Geopolitical dominance? Eh... seems like any place ponies go outside their country they're not taken very seriously. Which is odd considering that they control the sun. But on the flip-side of that coin, I guess when your neighbors are Griffinstone (collapsed society), badlands, and tribals, there's not a lot of competition on the political world stage.

    Because it's really easy to just assume the form of somepony's lover and steal that then to go through all the hassle and work of getting into the dating scene, the awkwardness of Tinder profiles, and trying to strike non-cliche conversations over dinner at some bland restaurant because you're not sure of your date's full eating habits, just for the off chance you might score a kiss.

    Going by the Movie, Ponies outside of Equestria or other Pony lands are either friends(usually as a result of the Main 6s actions) or livestock--being sold as pets or having their body parts harvested and sold.

    Klugetown =/= the entire world outside Equestria. That was the mistake Twilight made, I'd hate to see you repeat it.

    I consider what Pi Pie said and cme to the conclusion that its is all well and good following the hull formula with the ships, but when I did that with the Xyrait and Phystyulons they were more visibly different (accomodating large features makes for interesting hull engineering), so with this and the PD frigate earlier, I've started to play with the base design a bit more.

    I actually quite like this one. Bonnie's colour scheme is actually a rather good one - I might even pinch it for another whole fleet...

    Dang, ignore the black cylinder in the bottom, that's the flight stand hole thingy that I forgot to delete then when doing the picture that I've only just noticed when I posted this...!

    So I see the fad of people pretending they're enlightened knowers of truth about the real GrimDark Equestria as rolled around again It's early.

    Is it me or is Rockhoof's desire for "stone sleep," the darkest the show's ever been since its more or less equivalent to suicide.

    That sounds like Equestria's geopolitical leadership was only recent then, if there wasn't much friendliness before the Mane6 arrive. :o
