More Investigation!


Queen Latifah continues her fruitless investigation! With no way past that locked safe, it seems the only way forward is to keep working for the Van Graffs. However, Cass suddenly and inexplicably comes down with amnesia and forgets who the Van Graffs are!

MAS Progress Update 1


This video is an update on where we’re actually standing with our plans for MAS! Basically, I’m at the entry level for this kind of stuff, and if we wait for Petirep to be available it will be a few months at the bare minimum – it’s hard to say how busy he’ll be after he’s done with his current project, so the smartest thing to do will be to learn how to put MAS together independently!

So far the general consensus is that MAS should remain ponies and not drift too far away from the MLP setting and characters. Although there are people saying they’d like to see unique stuff not strictly related to ponies, and that will certainly be possible as I get a grasp of what I’m doing!

Dwarfs!


I’ve taken a shine to Dwarf Fortress and thought I should do a tutorial for it!

We’ve also got an update to New Vegas. Queen Latifah investigates the mystery of “who attacks people in broad daylight”. The answer is everyone. Everyone does that.

In news regarding MAS, the videos were also seized by a “royalty collections” company, which is a kind of company that has notoriously bad politics on Youtube. Unfortunately, this prompted me to go ahead and pull the videos before things became any more sour. I spent the weekend and past couple days seeing Kenza – we’d been planning to see each other for a while! But now she’s gone back to her home, and I’m back to full-time attention to the website!

I’m going to start delving into animation software and get a feel for what all we’ll need to do. Looks like a fair amount ahead, but I’ve also experimented with some concept art in my own amateur skill. I’m trying to think up a plan to make my lack of expertise feel more natural so it’s not jarring and ugly, and given the amount of support behind me to get things back in gear, I’ll periodically post progress videos and discuss some of the hurdles and plans. That way you guys know what’s going on and there won’t be any long stretches of quiet!
