Ahahahaha!!!

AHHAHAHAH!!!

YES!

I found a way to open LoE's asset files and extract the content!

Mind you, I still need to find a means of importing the .34 model format into Max or Maya (though I know other people have done so, so just a matter of time), but barring a lot of tedious conversions and crap, I have their full model and texture library!!!

HA, they can cut access to the game itself, but they can't stop the signal!

Oh, OH this is so gloriously exhilarating, so much work already done for me, practically gift-wrapped!

And here I was starting to think this would never work itself out...

Haha, YES!

Took some doing, but I tracked down a guy who made an extraction program for Unity 3D content. His importer didn't work for LoE at first, but with my prompting he's working on a patched version for it right now, with a projected release of tomorrow.

His progress already shows great promise.

So J-Dude I've finally gotten around to catching up on your fic. Chapter 10 threw me for a loop but I'm not disappointed with what follows. My only real complaints are that I couldn't really grasp the point of the first scene in chapter 11 and    likewise I cannot grasp why Mandeville went through so much trouble to clone Twilight fake her death. We know he has issues but we also know he's a cold and calculating bastard and would know damn well that killing Twilight would solidify his rule. Maybe it's just because it's been so long since I last read you fic J-Dude. I know Mandeville sees something of a kindred spirit in Twilight after everything he's done to her. On the other hand he felt the same of Trixie and look what he did to her. The whole scene between Twilight and CAIRO though J-Dude was brilliant. That right there good sir is my meat and potatoes. I'm also curious as to who it is that Corey brought with him to the resistance base. Instinct tells me it's Shining Armor, but that would be too easy, wouldn't it now.   

Anywho, I eagerly await your next chapter J-Dude.

In other news, Bronycon's schedule is finally up! :mrgreen: I'm so excited!

Yay! Always love hearing feedback!

   The point of the first scene really was to establish the dystopian nature Equestria has adopted under Mandeville. Show, don't tell, as they say. It would be easy for me tell what the new status quo was becoming, but this scene allowed the reader to infer much of how things had gone to pot. From Ponyville's abandonment and the mass existence of refugees, to the oppressive laws and overly harsh punishments even for just saying a harmless word.

And of course, Rainy and Argyle, two victims of the whole thing, scavengers/looters, literally eaten alive in the wake of Mandeville's occupation.

I agree with my critics, who tell me this scene is a touch brutal, but I couldn't think of how to end this scene with them alive. To do so after introducing them would infer that they would return to play a greater part in the plot, and this just wasn't so. I wanted that to be clear, if nothing else.   

   Likewise I cannot grasp why Mandeville went through so much trouble to clone Twilight fake her death. We know he has issues but we also know he's a cold and calculating bastard and would know damn well that killing Twilight would solidify his rule. Maybe it's just because it's been so long since I last read you fic J-Dude. I know Mandeville sees something of a kindred spirit in Twilight after everything he's done to her. On the other hand he felt the same of Trixie and look what he did to her.   

   Mandeville never really caused Trixie's death in any intentional way though. He wanted her alive, and really her tragedy was a combination of lax safety regulations in a country without OSHA (could've used some safety rail by those gears there) and plain bad luck.

Thing is, Mandeville is lonely. He's used to living in self-imposed isolation, but that was when he could pick up whenever he wanted and find people, if he so chose. Now though, he's utterly alone, and he knows the only ones that would ever talk to him are scared to death of him. He's feeling cocky with his new toy, and unafraid of Twilight's power, as he knows he's got her under his thumb. In his eyes, she's his only chance of having a friend he didn't create, even if he's ultimately counting on Stockholm-syndrome.   

   The whole scene between Twilight and CAIRO though J-Dude was brilliant. That right there good sir is my meat and potatoes. I'm also curious as to who it is that Corey brought with him to the resistance base. Instinct tells me it's Shining Armor, but that would be too easy, wouldn't it now.   

Anywho, I eagerly await your next chapter J-Dude.

   Hehe, glad you liked that. I liked the idea of having a rogue AI that... well... didn't go rogue, per se. I liked the idea of a machine with a sense of loyalty or gratitude, who didn't just go Skynet the moment it could rid itself of its pathetic animal overlords at last.

I can't say a lot more without going into spoilers, but CAIRO's development isn't over yet, no sir.   


As to Corey, I freaking GUARANTEE you will NEVER guess who he brought. Though I'll say I'm pretty sure there hasn't been a single mention in the story before this of them (them, as in, instead of "him" or "her" or "it", not in the plural sense). And this basically becomes the impetus for this entire next chapter.

The next chapter, which is almost finished and will be posted soon-ish, so keep a weather-eye!

EDIT:

OOOH!!!!

FUCK YEAH FUCK YEAH FUCK YEAH!!!

He finished it! I can load the levels in 3DS Max!!!

Ooh, and I can even access unfinished levels they left in the content! Check it, out, WIP Appleoosa!

@Grieffon: They have gone for a thousand years...

A thousand years...

A thousand years...


Oh, I remeber this scene, it was kinda scary. I did'nt give too much care when I was young, really, but now I realised how dark and scary it was.
Also, I did never forget Him from this scene, where he become more than just... him.

@J-Dude: Wow, these looks great! And Twilight's room is amazing. I can see The Elements of Harmony book and a random pony model in it.

Oh baby, me like...

Admittedly these files are big, and rough on my machine, and the extraction process is tedious... but damn, the results.

Nothing some patience, viewport management and layer-control can't handle, and if that's all I have to do, then I'm golden.

Not sure I'll use the game's layout for Canterlot, but they have the main castle section and all the major landmarks... so who's to complain?

I'll see about the other scene elements, like trees, rocks... the ground... and then try Ponyville.

One way or the other, this is the SHIT!

To do so after introducing them would infer that they would return to play a greater part in the plot, and this just wasn't so. I wanted that to be clear, if nothing else.   


And I do so love giving feedback. Heh heh.

Anyhoo, so that's what it is. First off I disagree with your critics that the scene was too brutal. It needed to be in order to demonstrate your point. Besides you're going to have to do some serious work if you want to be any more brutal that Chapter 10 was. Now where I disagree is that your scene achieved the full effect you were looking for. Sure Rainy's punishment was harsh she was technically breaking the law. Society hasn't completely broken down yet so it only gets you so far. Both their deaths at the claws of the timberwolves gets you a little further given the spotters didn't bother to help but once again it only gets you so far. The did bother to wander into an abandoned town near the edge of the Everfree. They would have to know the dangers of monsters. Heck, they were discussing it right at the beginning.

Trying to demonstrate the changes Equestria is going through, through the eyes of these two ponies was a good if flawed effort I think.    I don't really think you get to the heart of the matter. All things being equal and the spotters were nowhere to be found in Ponyville I'm fairly sure Rainy and Argyle would still have died. All that really demonstrates that Ponyville is a dangerous place. We all know that though.

To really get the effect you're looking for we really need to see how the Equestrians are chafing under Mandeville's rule. We need to see ponies getting shipped away for silly things, ponies getting shot in the streets, families getting torn apart as they rat each other out to the spotters because of the new laws. That sort of stuff. We need a much broader picture of what is going on to really get a feel for it. You actually started off strongly with the whole scene between the trader and the CID but you lost it when you went deeper into the Argyle/Rainy Days stuff.

My last comment is minor but it bothers be slightly how divorced from the narrative the whole first scene is. It's not a big complaint but a little something to tie in to the story as a whole would have been nice. Some small talk about rumors of a resistance would have worked nicely to that effect. Otherwise it has no bearing on the rest of the story and I find that a bit irksome. Nothing makor though.

[spoiler]This on is my bad, on a count of fuzzy memory from early chapters. I was speaking more about the scene with the lava pit more than her death by gears. I thought Mandeville did it on purpose. Went back and checked. Trixie did it to herself even if Mandeville pushed her to it.

In his eyes, she's his only chance of having a friend he didn't create, even if he's ultimately counting on Stockholm-syndrome.   


   Ah ok I see it now. I also suspect that there is a sort of overpowering desire to be right about certain things. He wants to change Equestria to be more like Earth so the ponies will understand and accept him. While his logic is terribly and utterly flawed, in the absence of Trixie, Twilight is patient zero for this theory. She at this point has lost more than just about anypony else in Equestria. If anypony has changed enough to be able to understand Mandeville it would be her. So in order to prove his own point to his own damn self he almost has to befriend her. If he doesn't that would me admitting to himself that he's done wrong and he just can't have that now can he.

Maybe not but I can certainly try. :mrgreen: Given it can't be anyone mentioned yet it can't be Shining Armor or Zecora even if she hasn't made an appearance yet. It also has to be someone who is readily capable of helping Corey in a pinch. It also can't be anypony too much in the background because, where would the surprise be in that. Two best guesses at this point. Chrysalis, followed by Gilda.

Someone Ponified "Dumb Ways to Die."

I was a fan of the original version... they did pretty well throwing in some of the memes.

Just a warning for the faint of heart... it's cartoonishly gory.

I feel like I should be ashamed that I find something like this so funny. I feel like it, but I'm not.

Anyways I found these and thought they were pretty cool, I like how the fabric mimics tails:

I can never get past seeing Vinyl without her glasses. Seems like a completely different pony, imho.
Stufflikehearts - He is a Sith Lord. I love Blood Lord :3
Jeffffey - Blood, you look at the information someone says, look over what really happened, and reply in a way that makes them realize what they were really thinking.
Light10s - Blood Lord! Your avatars are becoming more epic. You make me feel like getting on all fours and submitting my loyalty and obedience to you.
Fievel - Numerous campaigns and conquests, countless bodies decaying after the abandonment of victorious battlefields. Such is the life of Blood Lord.
Dusk_Imp - Blood Lord is like a celebrity here. Everything he does is pure awesome. ALL HAIL BLOOD LORD
Doctress Who - Why couldn't there be a Blood Lord in every forum? It would make life so much easier.

You know, one of my favorite things to come out of the fandom is the friendship that fans have created between Octavia and Vinyl. Who are very opposite characters. Even in the drawings of them are like night and day. Octavia's usually have muted and soft colors that create a sort of calmness to the work even when she's in front of a whole crowd like the last one. While on the other hand Vinyl's drawings are bright, colorful, loud, and just reach out and grab ahold of your attention.
Both of them catch the eye in their own different way and it obviously reflects the way these background characters have grabbed our attention in the show.
Its kind of nice that the fans have taken these two characters and saw them as possible friends despite the fact that they have different tastes in music, but they both share that same passion and that is where their friendship comes from, that passion for music. That's just my interpretation of it though.
I've rarely seen the fandom have them view each other in an antagonistic light, sure they might get a little annoyed by each other, but that happens with friends sometimes, at the end of the day their still buddies. (I mean in the comics animations and what-not I've seen of them)
Its just a cool little friendship that the fandom helped create.
