Greetings everyone,

Due to unemployment and a need to diversify my skillset, I have got my hands on a copy of Autodesk Softimage 2011 and intend to start learning 3D model creation by starting with one of my favorite games - Sins of a Solar Empire! What I have noticed is that there is a decided lack of Space Ponies from the modding community of a game which includes it as an Easter egg. As such, I have decided to begin work on rectifying this problem. 



Introducing The New Lunar Republic!

Princess Luna is building her fleet and I hope to have it constructed over the next month or two. I don't plan to go extensively into diversifying their research tree and may even lazy out and do a direct copy of the advent tree. What I'm intending to do is build the models and see what comes from that. If the work goes smoothly even then I may even launch Princess Celestia's armada for the Solar Empire. 

Any questions, comments, suggestions, or tips are welcome

I normally like to give aspiring modders encouragement, but this is a horrible idea, and you are a horrible person for having it.

Yeah, but like it or not we have a small community of bronies on these forums that will probably make it a cult classic.

I will say for the record Sins had space ponies before bronies were a thing. And that Sins space ponies always wear astronaut helmets, or giant fishbowls depending on how technologically advanced you think they are.

The fact that the forum bronies haven't found this thread yet confuses me.

And of course, even mentioning the term "bronies" summons them so here they come...

They're too afraid to comment because they expect you an Orkul to phase in on them once found.

Does anyone have a guide on editing particles? Kind of thinking that rainbow exhaust would be great.

Krdax is the resident particle master. He comes and goes but he's definitely the one to ask about such things.

And you guys thought we wouldn't post

But yes, do this. How many factions are you planning on adding? I would love for you to keep the stock races as well, so I can play with my non-brony friend too.

Been a bit busy the last couple days doing an alternative project with a business partner so I have not been able to give this the attention that I would like, but it is good to see that more people are getting excited about it. I was a little disheartened at the lack of friendship and harmony. 

What I'm looking to do is make Equestria faction playable along with the other races in Rebellion with Celestia being the Loyal faction and Luna being the Rebel faction.

Well, everyone who is well known or wants/fails at being annoying in this forum who comes in contact with bronies does seem to pass through a pony-hating phase. And if FredLed is Chris ******** from SoCal, then you should not hate bronies just because someone from Youtube told you to.

Somehow I get the feeling some of the trolls are waiting to play this so they can mass murder ponies.  :'(

I don't get the trolling here honestly .

I mean, good content is good content, if this mod is as good as I'm hoping, it'll look good and play good. If you're not a very tolerable person toward us bronies, don't post. If it bothers you that much, why stay? I'm not(and I don't think any brony would) just gonna stop liking ponies and join you in flaming because of your posts.

Besides, it's not like there's a million pony threads here. This is like, the only one I've ever seen.

Some of you guys aren't bronies yet are actually not flaming here, which is a nice change of pace, so thanks. 

But PhoenixPhyre, keep us posted on this one. Can't wait to see some ship models!
