I'm sorta on the homestretch here. The main model is done, now the only thing missing are the LODs and physics model. Which isn't as straightforward as SL links the LODs to their parents because it has expectations regarding number of objects, material lists and bounding box size.

It was both an ordeal and a learning experience.

My popen, in a very, very vague way, could be compared to the entity described in the first half of the first song.

Is it safe? Can we post here again?
Whew, alright. Time for your morning dosage of 'caps, Anon!
Not too-too many this time around, still recharging after that wild Lunar New Year bash a couple of nights ago ( as shown here, if (You) haven't see it already: https://imgur.com/a/617B60C ). But that certainly doesn't mean this morning was a sleepy one, no siree, especially when the locals break-out the table games.
Actually ended up winning a round of mahjong solitaire on my first try, after not having touched a single tile in nearly a decade! Some real beginners luck to be sure. Wisely chose not to test the tiles twice-over in one sitting, felt I strained their patience well enough as it stood.

After some vexing attempts at matching symbols, Marble decided to take off their hair-ties and bring their mane into full form.
How they could see the tiles through those heavenly locks remains a mystery, but evidently it must've paid off, as they won their very next game thereafter. Guess (You) really /do/ have to let your mane down every once in a while.

After a ration of rogue xylophone attacks, miscellaneous Hollowheart chicanery (those crafty devils), and a literal ghostly abduction (or two), the mane cast for the night decided to chill-out and get real comfy with one another in the often-overlooked igloo, just off the beaten path from the central lodge.
Little cramped, but there's still some novelty to be had in warming up whilst surrounded by snow and ice.
Technically a poltergeist shoved practically everyone in there, and we just decided to make the best of it. No point in venturing outside when unruly spirits are on the prowl.

I'm glad they have a memorial and one constructed quite well but looking at this one and the memorial for another person in LE I pray if I die that you guys don't have some hyper anthro pics of my pony on the memorial or my pony making out with Sonic.

Do make it a habit on the very rare occasions I visit Moonshine to pay vigil at Pillow's memorial. More than most get in online circles so they must have done something well to have others want to memorialize the pony.

Yes, but you can hide your username behind a nickname once you're in the game.

>>39557950
There's usernames and nicknames. It costs $40 to change your username, but you can change your nickname once a week for free.
>>39557981
"Hide" is rather misleading as everyone can still see your username, and as far as I'm aware most people leave it enabled in nametags and chat messages by default, too.
>>
>>39557641
It's sweet but also a bit disturbing to think what if someone very well known here dropped dead tomorrow, what would their memorial look like, if there is even one at all?
>>
>>39557993
That's an interesting question. I feel like some people might not want one at all, being that we're supposedly anons and all and it'd be weird to put down a memorial like that. For others it'd probably be an appropriate gesture. Worst part is it's probably hard to say, and once it happens it'll be too late

We all sent her emails about what a fun guy he was to hang out with and stuff.

Honestly though I've been here so on and off over the years due to fluctuating show quality that I've missed any drama relating to him. I don't want to read about the drama in an OpenPony thread though, especially not when he has no real presence besides showing up sometimes in world and having an article in the OP.

IM them to communicate, or become based as well.
It's not hard.
Isn't most of being friends with someone about 1 to 1 communication anyways?
For real friends, hanging out in SL is just a bonus actually, I've made a few friends who I just talk to on >Discord now because they don't get on SL much anymore. I also have SL friends from my more 'normie' days in SL who come on SL more but aren't based enough to come to Baltimare (non-ponies who don't want to pony up) and they're still my friends. Lern2friend
>>
>>39559323
Not saying it's not a surprise they aren't considered based enough for Cloudsdale but...
>>
>>39559315
Depends. I'm blocked from cloudsdale and my actual friends that frequent there either come visit elsewhere or I talk to them outside of SL. But I have a number of strictly SL "friends" who stay there only, which removes any potential for the relationship to really go anywhere.

so far I didn't feel any desire to go to cloudsdale myself. for one even smaller sims kinda make me feel claustrophobic (from the social perspective. the more people the less you get under the dumb magnifying glass) and two, I don't feel like I'm missing something (yet). tourists often provide material to laugh about and if they get too annoying usually some janny takes care of them. also, I don't have anyone in that circlejerk so no problem from that side either.

I hardly know anyone of the Cloudsdale regulars. By regular I mean those who spent most of their time there. I'm more familiar with people who either are mostly in Baltimare or who go all around the place.

Is there a list how active the different pony sims are over the week and time of day?
>>
>>39559545
Some people are shy. I think a lot are also just busy and only message a few people out of habit if at all so you'd have to work your way into that circle of theirs. I don't message people because I'm really introverted and don't even think about it but if a friend messages me I'll generally leap on it as soon as I notice it.

My prediction is that cloudsdale will not have as strict entry requirements as it would seem otherwise their population will be tiny. I M O clousdale would be best served if it was more exclusive than less exclusive simply to make it "different" from baltimare. (I also think baltimare should try to be the more "open" sim) Otherwise there's risk both baltimare and cloudsdale will compete for the same members, Maybe I'm wrong but I also believe both sim owners are sick of politiking and don't really want to be at odds yet because they have competing goals and ideas can't truly be at ease with each other's sims either. The community as well probably desires the least amount of drama. Am I wrong there?

Sand swept through the entire region like a churning sea, not an inch of Winter's snow remained underhoof. Light rained down from the heavens above, beckoning the dunes to grow ever-higher still. Sirens rang through the air accompanied by ponice on megaphones, ushering survivors to some attempted semblance of safety away from the heart of the city. The skies turned red, and all was grim... Until it suddenly wasn't.
The sands receded, dunes disappearing in an instant, and with it went the monolithic structure commanding them in tow. Within moments, it was if the cataclysm was all just a collective nightmare and little more.
Wonder if some hapless explorer tampered with an ancient Somnambulan crypt they really should've left alone.

I like this idea. Don't want to shag up with a mare even for a single day so sharing friendship bracelets will be nice since not only could we share multiple ones but it'll be more casual.

That does make me wonder though but what if the bracelets we had perhaps had individual sections or beads that were blank and when making a friend you color a single section on theirs with your primary color and they do the same for you? By the end have a rainbow display of the friends you made. If they can scale well enough maybe even a cutie mark too.

No, I don't want bad things to happen to anons, it's just that. Most anons from what I know are not bad people, even if some are lost in their lives.
Even if a game is fun, a game is a game, when things start impacting real life and your mental health, you need to be careful.
The game might be named Second Life, but you only get one, don't waste yours by not threatening your ills and suffering.
>>
Hello everyone, I've not played second life before, but I'm thinking about giving it a go so I can create/design pony characters, and my oc's.
I've not read the guide yet (which I'll 100% need to do as I'm a dumbass) but I'm curious about how malleable the models are, and how easy it will be to create a non cannon pony like model.
>>
>>39560754
It depends. Making a pony OC and even some other races (kirin, bat ponies, deer...) is easy since other people already built tons of content you can use for that. If it's something original or more niche it might take more work.
That said if you can use Blender, the sky's the limit.
>>

Never used Blender before unfortunately, and yes the character I would like to create is likely to be niche as I would like to create a Kelpie (yes the kind from Celtic mythology and not the kind illustrationed in the comics, and no I'm not looking to create anything non cute)
basically the design will need longer limbs, an elongated body, longer snoot, membranous ears, and scales instead of fur.

>>39560751
Second Life isn't really a game, honestly. It's a chatroom with 3D avatars and worlds that allows for game-like aspects to be achieved through scripted objects.
Would you consider VRChat a game? It's a similar concept. Most don't go there to "play." Most get online to socialize and make cute avatars as those are the core aspects of the platform.

It is reasonable for people to make connections and get attached because it's more of a social platform than it is a game. I've made very real connections with people from Second Life, and even befriended and met them IRL.
>>
>>39560824
yeah that should all doable without blender, there's already fish ponies and stuff like that
that said you'll probably want to make a basic pony and learn the ropes before you try to make something like this

I consider VRchat a game too. You could do the exact same things you did in SL in any MMO game. Hell, there's plenty of strange story about WoW and FFXIV.

Perhaps i'm too pessimistic, but virtual relationships when more than friends rarely goes well.
Perhaps it is because of personal experience, but there will always be a divide between IRL and IVL Mixing the two can lead to disastrous things..

I do know of people who have made long-lasting relationships and friendships through mmorpgs like WoW and XIV, yes. But both of those have an objective as games. You can play any mmorpg solo and be perfectly fine doing so(outside of content like dungeons and raids, but even XIV is adding ways to enjoy that content solo if you so choose).
Second Life has no objective. Sitting in Second Life by yourself and not interacting with others is not by any means enjoyable, unless you've gotten on to create an avatar, in which case you are in a state of creating something with which you will go to interact with others in.

>>39560873
What if someone doesn't have any of those bonds outside of SL? I know there's plenty here who are literally autistic and struggle with real relations and speaking, but SL gives them a space where they can communicate maybe a little more freely and get to have some comfort without masking who they really are to appear "normal" to the real world.
>>
>>39560938
fucking ebin
>>
>>39560865
>>39560870
I think that honestly, Second Life is better compared to a forum or social media platform than a game, per se. Given that interaction and socialisation are the main points, it's more of a chatroom with a fun interactive 3D setting than it is a game with a chat function.
However that 3D setting can be very intricate so I think it's worth differentiating between two kinds of "relationships". The first is basically like any other online relationship: definitely not as good as an in-person one, but it can work, people have made it work even if it's harder than usual, and just like any other online relationship if it's not super long distance and can actually evolve into an in-person one then so much the better.
The second type is a purely virtual relationship where both parties RP as being 100% ponies (or, more generally, their avatars) and basically separate it from their first life, while simultaneously treating it almost as seriously - if not more - than their IRL. THAT is the kind of attitude that is highly unhealthy, and that is really the case where you should not be running away from your real problems by escaping to a virtual world.

But anyone who's using SL as escapism and unhealthy coping is probably doing that regardless of any relationship. A relationship would certainly make it much worse, of course, but it's not the only symptom that things are unhealthy, nor conversely is it a surefire indication that things are unhealthy - it could just be a normal online relationship where both happen to play SL, maybe even met through SL, but are otherwise living healthy IRL lives and getting to know each other.
>>
>>39561003
>What if someone doesn't have any of those bonds outside of SL?
The long and short of it is that while virtual relationships do offer something, they aren't nearly as nourishing as irl relationships. Autism might make it harder to tell, but most people sense this on some level and their priorities naturally shift to align with that. In very dry, autistic terms, irl friendships involve giving or getting support for each others' physical weakpoints, where virtual relationships only support mental weaknesses. That is at minimum a whole half of life missing from virtual friendships.
Spending time in SL (or browsing 4chan, or tiktok, or youtube, or discord, or even reading a book) has that nourishment as an opportunity cost. For a lot of people, the neglect of their physical life (even if not overtly fat, weak, unhealthy) only drives them further an further into this virtual world where their friends can support them - they attempt to make their life more mental, so that their friends' support goes further. Regardless of your metaphysical beliefs, there can be no escaping the fact that your bodily health is just as important, and thus that physical relationships are very valuable for the simple fact that physical friends will let you sleep at their house, give you gifts, a backrub, etc.
And all this is not to mention the difference that physical closeness makes on the mental side of things, as well. These are the people that will be there if the internet goes out or the world goes to shit. There is simply more possible trust when you aren't relying on a thousand faceless network engineers to reach your buddy.

New products from Hmart were released tonight. Couple of outfits and a hooful of manes and tails.

However, Hmart just went ahead with a merger between the storefronts Moonpop and Solemn Swears, both owned by hollowhearts that already worked on open pony. Many of the items for sale from those two store fronts are now listed under Hmart, so not everything you see will be 'new' but have already been around for a while. Ill list the new products with the pictures I took.

In deciding whether something is gay, here are a couple of useful hypotheticals to consider:
- if you were flexible enough, would it be gay to suck your own dick?
- if you had a portal gun, would it be gay to fuck your own ass?

Ponder these for a while, but personally, I believe that the answer lies in the intent. If you wish to have your dick sucked, and sucking it yourself is just a means to an end that you wish you didn't have to resort to, it's not gay. On the other hand, if you wanna suck a dick, and your own is just the most convenient one, then it's 100% gay. And so forth.
This reasoning can actually be applied to many other ambiguous situations. For example, imagine you really really love jacking off cocks. And then when you masturbate, and you do it primarily for the pleasure of jacking off a dick, not for the pleasure of getting your dick jacked off. I don't know anyone who'd do this, but hypothetically, that'd be gay.
Conversely, if you're jacking it to porn that was drawn by a man: are you doing it because the porn is hot? Or specifically because it was drawn by a man? In 99.9% of cases (or more) I assume it's the first one, so it's not gay. If you did specifically decide to go look at drawings made my a man, and fantasized about the man who drew it, it'd be definitely gay, though.

And this leads us to our final conclusion. Is sexo with a mare avatar gay? You can probably guess the answer there. Is your intent to have sexo with a mare avatar, or to have larp sexo with a man controlling a pony? What are you fantasizing about during the act, what is your motivation and your focus?
If the point, for you, is the mare, then it's not gay. If the point is the man behind the mare, then it's definitely gay. A relatively simple and self-consistent conclusion, whose reasoning can be applied to almost any situation like that.

>sexuality in solo masturbation
No matter how you do it, it's not even 50% gay. It's possible to have a gay intent behind it but the act cannot be gay because sexual orientations have to do with other people and it is just masturbation. You're not having gay sex by jacking off, fucking your ass with a realistic dildo or even sucking your own dick, you're masturbating. There are people attracted to futas (and thus dicks) and they are not gay just for finding male sexual characteristics attractive. Even masturbating to gay porn does not make you gay, it's just masturbating to porn, you could actually find it hot for reasons other than wanting to fuck the pornographic actors (wanting to fuck them being what would make you gay.)

>It's possible to have a gay intent behind it but the act cannot be gay
What a weird distinction. If you have gay intent, does that not make it gay?
You seem to have such a narrow view of what is gay. What about kissing another man (romantically), is that also not gay because you're not actually fucking him in the ass?

>you could actually find it hot for reasons other than wanting to fuck the pornographic actors (wanting to fuck them being what would make you gay.)
In a way here you're almost agreeing with me - the intent is what makes it gay. I would agree that sure, if you watch gay porn but somehow not at all because you find the gay sex or the male actors hot, then I suppose that's not gay? Note that almost anyone who watches gay porn does that specifically because of gay desires, therefore in practice it's pretty much always gay. But otherwise, your statement here is very much similar to my logic everywhere else.

>If you have gay intent, does that not make it gay?
I guess it does depend on if you define it by "attraction to others" or "attraction to people," extended to acts as well. Going by the former it's not gay, going by the latter it is, and then even being attracted to yourself is gay, so if you think you look good in the mirror...
>What about kissing another man (romantically)
Every definition of homosexuality includes romantic attraction or acts with members of the same sex as being gay.

You can find the gay sex act of porn hot without being attracted to anyone participating in it.

>even being attracted to yourself is gay, so if you think you look good in the mirror...
If you want to fuck a clone of yourself (non-genderswapped), then yes absolutely.
If you just think highly of yourself, that's simply narcissism. Again, intent: are you thinking homosexual thoughts?

>You can find the gay sex act of porn hot without being attracted to anyone participating in it.
If you're aroused by the act of gay sex, that's gay, even if these specific participants don't happen to be themselves appealing to you. You're literally aroused by the idea of homosexual penetration.

Which is really dumb, these aren't two businesses competing for users. These are two spaces made to serve /mlp/ users, and if anons happen to hang out at one rather than the other that means that that's what serves the board better. If every anon moves to Cloudsdale and lives happily ever after and Baltimare dies overnight, that'll be a good ending (due to the "every anon living happily ever after" part). Ergo vice-versa. And both sims should recognise this and manage accordingly, not get annoyed that their sim is seeing less traffic or something.
>>
>>39564006
The first two are absolutely correct though. Rose was pushing his own vision and objectively wanted to have a very relaxed version of R1 that would allow furries to hang out (remember when Rose let Dashu stick around in voidicus as a fat titty anthro?). Rara is almost absent and is objectively extremely non-proactive in getting stuff done that people might want.

I think most of the jannies aren't out of touch, but the overall administration apparatus is highly inefficient so they don't end up getting anything done either.

I mean nothing is stopping anyone from just doing any survey at any time. There's no rule against that.
You being the journalist makes you particularly qualified, too.

The way I see it the difference is that a janny-commissioned survey is something they would specifically want to take into account and might request specific questions to be on it that would help them make up their minds, while just a random journalistic survey will just be a way to document public opinions which jannies may or may not take into account and which may or may not poll for exactly the things they would have wanted to ask.

The snake should be beheaded and every one of them pushing the us vs them agenda be sacked but everyone knows rara doesn't have the will to do much of anything and would probably support that agenda anyway if it means he can be more lazy because there is no one else trying to get anons to hangout.
>>
>>39564031
>wanted to have a very relaxed version of R1 that would allow furries to hang out
This is an unfair and incomplete representation. Yes, Rose wanted to relax R1 outside of the hangout, but it wasn't to make a furry heaven. Instead, the spirit of that policy would be to let people just drop by and shop for a brief moment -- if they started to hang around, they'd be demanded to switch into a pony avatar.
Now I was opposed to this too, furries and anthros already have a wealth of sims they can shop in, but it is important to be fair.

I didn't intend to misrepresent it, in my mind "letting them drop by and shop around for a bit" is indeed very relaxed. Baltimare was meant to be /mlp/'s sim, any shops would naturally have been targeted to serve /mlp/, why would shopping have been an excuse to have anthros wandering around?

>both sims being next to eachother isn't simply a physical thing they'd have to have some degree of janitorial udnerstanding
To be fair they wouldn't HAVE to have it. They could be next to each other and leave each other to their own wildly inconsistent moderation policies.

But that's also the main objection that gets brought up. People allowed in both will benefit, but others would just have a giant FOMO wall visible right from their homes that they can't access. Marshmallow doesn't HAVE to be allowed in Cloudsdale, but if Baltimare's stance is that Marsh is a respectable anon without anything to reproach, while Cloudsdale's stance is that they believe Marsh is anti-anon and isn't allowed, then what? It doesn't matter which side is right, just that the disagreement means that Baltimare would leave one of their citizens to hang around an impassable sim border that other friends are going back and forth through.

>>39564088
Hence the desire to have some understanding. If Marsh is supposedly persona non grata, and nobody cares that she'll be stuck sitting behind a barrier while the radar shows everypony else just walking around, then why is she welcome in Baltimare? Or if Marsh is supposedly a good respectable anon and remains welcome, then why is she banned in Cloudsdale?

Or if there's disagreement, maybe Baltimare shouldn't put a giant impassable wall where only some of their citizens can go through and enjoy what's on their other side while other citizens, equally "valued" and "welcome", are left to stew behind the banline.

This but it doesn't help everyone wants different things and that's also because anons as a whole are also divided
There is no mass to speak of, when Rose wanted to do things mostly their way it didn't work after a while, when the house was split into two different models turns out some didn't want that to ever happen while others are happy not having to deal with either's model

Does it make a straight man any form of LGBT to find lesbian sex arousing?
It's not straight because it isn't straight sex, he can't be a lesbian because he's not even female, and he can't be gay from it because he's not getting aroused from gay sex. It's literally just getting aroused from sex.

>If you're aroused by the act of gay sex, that's gay
In some ways it's gay, but maybe someone likes anal or oral and the gay porn is just a way of fapping to that.
>You're literally aroused by the idea of homosexual penetration.
Or something that has nothing to do with their sex but still has to do with the sex like who's on top/bottom, dom/sub, etc.
>>
>>39564107
>Does it make a straight man any form of LGBT to find lesbian sex arousing?
It's arousing because it's sex with women. Unconventional one, sure, but not materially different to getting aroused to a woman masturbating. It's straight to find female sexual activity arousing.

>Or something that has nothing to do with their sex but still has to do with the sex like who's on top/bottom, dom/sub, etc.
Well, if you only find it hot because of some other circumstance not because of the gay sex, then that boils back down to
>if you watch gay porn but somehow not at all because you find the gay sex [...] hot
Again, my thesis is all about intent/focus, so if you find the idea of a man having sex with a man to be arousing then you're gay. If you find the idea of say someone being a sub, and it just happens to be a man with another man but you don't care about that, then the intent isn't gay.

If both were to connect then yeah Cloudsale would need to do the shitty thankless task of writing a ruleset most of their residents agree with and is somewhat reasonable just like Baltimare had to after several months (and some still wanna change it), because when an anon gets arbitrarily banned from an adjacent sim and they get astronomical FOMO from having a party in front of their nose that they're not invited to, believe me I don't wanna be the one to console them or worse put up with the "why did balti jannies let this happen"
Then again this is my own opinion, just like everypopen has one and that's why we are at were we are at.

>if you find the idea of a man having sex with a man to be arousing then you're gay
But if you find the idea of a man having e-sex with a man while one is playing a mare arousing, it's bi and not gay. There's precious few cases in which people ERP/poseball solely for the sake of the person on the other side without any arousal coming from the actual sexo itself. That's something that would require a gay relationship, plus being weird, and those people probably aren't the kind to have trouble deciding if what they're doing is gay or not because they are actively doing gay shit. So in SL, where everyone's here for the visuals, it's never gay unless it's completely gay, stallion on stallion, man and man.

>Hope you like popens.
Genuine critique: overdesigned. First thing that sounds out to me are the lips that look absolutely horrendous on a pony. It's often said that lipstick on a pony almost never works and is very very very hard to make look natural, but here it specifically looks as if someone had taken ugly, bulbous bimbo balloon lips and just glued them to the front of a horse's muzzle. For goodness' sake, it's completely detached from the actual horse mouth, there's just some random bimbo lips stuck to the front of your face.

While the lips are by far the worst offenders and make a "decent-looking but somewhat overdesigned and busy OC" into "deviantart tier sparklehorse", the rest of the OC is still somewhat busy and overdesigned as per. The blue glowing glasses with the visible blue rim and the blue glowing irises all blend together into a kind of blue blur of vague shapes on the face, which gives the effect of being more annoying to look at than cool or fancy or anything.
The rest of the color scheme also kinda looks very donut steel, especially with the super duper special designs around the cutie mark, but then I suppose that's kinda the point. Something about the blue and white color scheme rubs me slightly the wrong way but I'm not sure why. Maybe it's because it makes me think of sky or water, and looks like it belongs on a sleek pegasus/birb or a smooth fish/shark/whatever pone, but the actual design is really heavy and bulky, with big fetlocks that definitely don't belong on a cloud, etc.? Hard to say for sure. Or maybe because it looks like toothpaste.
Also the top of the wings makes me thinkg of vitiligo.

Alright, so your advice boils down to: make it more plain, take off your accessories. It's not 100% what you asked, but here ya go.
>>
>>39564541
That's already a LOT more aesthetically pleasing.
Mind you accessories aren't all bad. I've rated popens before, and off the top of my head I tend to say that Zydney and Xipsyl pull off good-looking ponies that are relatively well-accessorised and not very plain. But they make them fit together, work subtly as a theme, they don't stick giant bimbo lips and glowing novelty glasses with three layers of glow and call it a day.

Ponies in general are hard to accessorise without quickly starting to look too busy. They're simple creatures. Even some HMART members have decently put together outfits that aren't outright ugly, that fit together well, and no single piece can be said to be out of place or ill-fitting, but just end up looking too busy just because there's too much detail.

This image actually looks like a pony now. Still somewhat visible OC-itis due to the high-contrast high-detail color scheme but it's OC-itis that is much easier to look past, because yeah this is a game where we make OCs so fair enough.

I mean, I'm an addict to vaporwave and I'm a Hollowheart so over-design and looking like vomit is sorta built into me. I decided to try and make a softer looking popen for a change, and I'll save this as an outfit. I'm not sure how much I'll wear it, might just town down the rest of it, but uh... I need glasses to survive. Also I just find putting bimbo lips on ponies to be funny as fuck and will probs continue to do so. That being said that isn't totally the point, Diamond Cloud is meant to be unoffensive so I'll keep your advice in mind. No promises on my Hollowheart design.

Obviously if you want to make an ultradetailed glowy extra-designed pony, then it'll be really detailed and really glowy, and if that was your actual goal and you were merely pretending to be retarded then power to you.

Oh I just realised, why are the ears red inside? Maybe it's just me but it really doesn't seem to fit the cool blue-and-white color scheme

Agreed. Not sure why he's here when he has the OP and HMART discords where those things are tolerated and praised.

Based on what people have been posting I'm pretty sure you're not the only one, far from everyone is a mentally ill pathetic faggot unironically seeking a long-term relationship in a video game like me

As for making it clear, casually mentioning you don't intend for it to be romantic is probably the best balance between being autistically clear and not being autistically blunt as boulder. Phrased right, you can easily have it come off as exactly what you said here (i.e. just wanting something cute and funny ), while avoiding the need to outright tell people "but I don't actually want a relationship with you, mind!" to their face.

People criticise the G5 designs all the time, though. Their shape and proportions are the first thing you notice however.
Also all the accessories are much subtler that something like OS's first go at the cloud horse posted above. The wing gradient is light, and much subtler than the stark contrast white-on-blue details over OS's entire horse. The tiara is mostly subtle. The hooves are ugly as fuck yes, but honestly they kinda fit into the aesthetic of the G5 world. Also gilded hooves is kinda hot, I always thought it was just her natural color. And everyone fucking screeches about the phone so it's not an argument.

So my normal deign mentality is to vomit the 80s and 90s through a vaporwave lens, deigning something subtle and less loud is something people do not often commission me for, nor do I do it myself. I am working on this style of design and I do value the feedback, rude as it is. I also realize my tastes are wild, crazy, and stupid; they're way off base compared to your average popen enjoyer and I'd like to broaden my design range.

I will attempt to improve upon the design, perhaps start a fresh one later. I am always making additional popens.

Not quite cult of personality, you join and you will be pressured into changing your name into hollowheart and adding horns to your pony so you can fit in better, they also try hard to assimilate all creators into their group and work together on projects for the openpony clothing and stuff. They also have ‘friends’ that follow them around and don’t make stuff but want to be around hollowhearts, which makes sense with all the items they hoof out. Wouldn’t have much an issue with them if not for the name thing.
>>
>>39564828
Honestly, you can have vaporwave with just pastels and gradients and suchlike. I don't remember glowing eyes and bimbo lips and highly detailed skin designs being a staple of vaporwave.

If you can't make a good OC (which if that was your one example, would show you can't,) maybe you should watch the show, G4 and G5 included, either more or again until you "get" what a good pony that isn't plain looks like. The "slight adjustment" you should make is deleting all but one copy of that pony at minimum so it doesn't waste inventory and outfit space that could be used for better ones.

This is all incorrect, like just all of it. I could go over some finer points like how only a handful of Hollowhearts actually have horns, etc but... Eh it's not worth it. It's quite literally just a group of friends.

I mean and that's fair enough, if you wanna make a ridiculous clown looking pony then awesome, it just doesn't belong at all on a "serious" pony that you actually want to look good. You can do one or the other, and I absolutely appreciate making absurd designs, you just can't expect people to take it seriously.

Personally I was happy with how the mesh lips turned out, but wasn't expecting to hear them ruining an entire outfit. Are they really that atrocious?

I tried to make them look as non-bimbo as possible but still give the mouth the definition BOMs couldn't.

I didn't like the way the other lip addon made my popen look like a toddler had eaten a full pack of crayons.

If there is still need for OP lips, but not as big as the ones I made, let me know, I'll happily mesh a more subtle pair.

Also forgot to add, you seem to have the belief that any pony that would fit in the show is "extremely generic" and forgettable. I don't get that attitude.
You kinda sound like the people who make human avatars that are completely covered in tattoo layers, five dozen piercings, anime hair and have 6 foot wide asses/thighs, because they wanna be "interesting". They don't wanna be a normal human because it's "generic" or something. When almost every single person alive by that metric is "generic", and those that aren't overwhelmingly tend to be either gang members, convicts, junkies, or mental nutcases. Or in the best case lowlife drunk soccer moms with three failed abortions (and a dozen successful ones).

No, a pony who would fit in the show is just a pony. It's not "extremely generic" to be a pony. And most people here like ponies. An individual isn't a canvas of art to spray a modernist painting on and hang it up in a museum, they're... a pony. And that's why most people give weird looks when you walk around like a living jackson pollock canvas and claim you "don't wanna be generic".

Mind you tasteful designs don't have to be literally copy-pasted premade background pony shapes. Some of the limitations of background ponies are just due to budget restrictions (as evidenced, for example, with scenes that literally have multiple of the same pony copy-pasted). But there's a general aesthetic that can be adhered to, and people have created untold thousands of nice-looking OCs, without needing to just slap on a bunch of accessories or glow or a slapdash of colors and whatnot just to be "unique".

And again it's fine if you wanna build avatars like a canvas by sticking a bunch of stuff on top, it's just not what most people would consider a good pony. Maybe a good piece of modernist (or even postmodernist) art, to gawk at for a bit then shrug and walk away sniggering about the state of modern art. Not a serious actual pony design, though.

If you hate plain coats and lacking accessories that much you could make a non-generic primary character looking pony that doesn't look like a sparkledog. Or maybe you literally can't idk.

I know that background ponies can be very memorable and have interesting design. Pic related, it's my favorite one. That is all I shall address about this post, you're reading too much into what I'm typing anon, keep yer stick on the ice. Thank you for your concern though.

Look at a horse mouth. It goes all around the muzzle.
Look at the lips. They just stick purely to the front part of the mouth. Your lips are applied to probably like 20% of the pony's actual lip.

Is that bad? I mean, uh, it was clearly an intentional choice. It's what you went for. It's not really possible to fix, simply because the lip style you seem to be targeting is inherently flawed in my view.
Is it bad that they're flawed? Now we're getting into philosphy of what's good or bad. There's clearly a market for that stuff (even if OS2 says she likes them just because they look hilariously ridiculous - I'm pretty sure there's also a market for people who unironically think it's super beautiful and cute and lovely). I don't see anything wrong with you making them, or them existing. I'm just gonna call them really ugly every time I see them.

Horse lipstick is very, very hard to make look alright, and the easiest way to succeed is to just not put lipstick on horses. If you absolutely insist then yeah it's probably gonna have to be pretty subtle. If you absolutely insist on having "definition" and stark, bright, big liptstick then you're clearly outside of the realm where advice can apply to you.

Notice that even that is WAY plainer than almost all of your designs. The hair is unique and very stark, but almost everything else is subdued and plain. From the coat color (color, singular!), to the accessories (some simple clothes). No glow, no gradients, no complex coat designs, no multicolored manes, no complex glasses and trinkets, no markings, zero makeup.

Ponytown was peak pony when you could only make a basic pony

Besides the horns and designs in the eye balls I don't mind the Hollow Hearts too much. Had them help me with understanding some OP systems and SL stuff in general.

>>39564619
There's no reason to say it directly to you since I have no power to stop you from entering Baltimare and with how much sway you have with HMART and A-T I'd be at a severe disadvantage. Rather just de render you so I don't have to see whatever you make outside of every HMART store front and you don't have to interact with me.

They fit my goth look quite nicely and make up for the fact that I have bangs covering my popens eyes.

No I get it. I might even just make this pony in SL for fun.

Your heart is so full of hate anon, please take care.

>This is all incorrect, like just all of it.
"We're totally not a cult trust us!"
I didn't even notice the horns but since that anon mentioned it, I can barely think of any hollowheart that doesn't have them. Easily like 75%+ of them do, if not more like 90%+.
I've also seen a lot of cult of personality like interaction.

Of course someone who's part of it will deny that.

QRD:
-Luna bows to the HollowHearts
-In contact with Lindens
-Possess admin-like abilities
-Controls all pony sims with an iron but fair hoof
-Own sims and homesteads globally
-Direct descendants of the ancient first oldfags
-Will bankroll the second sim in the West (HMART Mall will be be the first parcel)
-Own 99% of OpenPony consumer products on the marketplace
-First true alicorn bodies will be made by them
-All HollowHearts said to have 215+ IQ, such intelligence on SL has only existed deep in Mainland parcels & The Linden Homestead
-Ancient Mainland scriptures tell of a race of angels who will descend upon SL and will bring an era of enlightenment and unprecedented development progress with them
-They own Popen development firms around all of SL
-You likely have HMART scripts inside you right now
-The HollowHearts are in regular communication with the Governors Michael and Gabriel, forwarding the word of Linden to the SL Masses.
-They learned fluent SLS in under a hour
-Land barons entrust their Linden-dollar reserves with the HollowHearts. There's no lindens in Ft. Miramare, only Ft. HMART.
-The HollowHearts are about 2 decades old, from the space-time reference point of the base popen currently accepted by our sim
-In reality, they are timeless beings existing in all points of time and space from the first server to the closing of the last sim. We don't know their ultimate plans yet. We hope they're benevolent beings.

Lmao not even that anon but just because he finds your (self-admitted!) garish designs to be garish, and would rather not bother looking at them as a consequence, his "heart is full of hate"?

>It's a friend group.
Which is what SL family groups are. Did I say it was a family RP group? Thanks for not denying it's SL normie trash.
>Most of us aren't there because we're too busy making junk
While you're in Blender, you're idling.
When it comes to creating, the only time it's required to do anything in a sandbox or elsewhere inworld is actively building items, scripting them, testing them, or taking pics, that's it. A lot of creating can be done without leaving Baltimare or Cloudsdale if you don't need a sandbox.
If you only visit sometimes, and spend far more time on other sims, you're in many ways a tourist, just one that visits the threads.

>>39564881
Similar autistic shit but at least not tourists from what I know, one is even anti-tourist. Based?

Marj doesn’t talk much. They’ve always been pretty quiet since I’ve known them, but they’re really nice. Known them for a couple years now. They’re not a degenerate just really quiet.

I can't believe someone on this board has figured it all out. Bravo, but you're too late to stop it anon.

Look I'm just a horse I got 2 brain cell pls. It sounded like they were upset and I don't like folks bein' upset.

>>39564963
We also build sims, which is what many of us be doin' nowish. I'm sorry to disappoint.
>>
>>39564947
Pretty much what >>39564955 said. I don't like it and rather than raise a stink in sim where there's supporters of you and where I could risk losing access to HMART and A-T I'd rather just prevent us from interacting at all to save myself the time and to spare anyone from hearing me reeeee in game (mind you still do to my friends who all like your stuff so thank you to them for their patience in dealing with me.) I'm in your group to get notifications of sales and paint jobs which I do enjoy especially the large HMART vehicle you've been develop recently. When it comes to ponies though I'm here for ponies, show style ponies so stuff like the HH while I like them as people I don't want to see their popens.

Good for you, do you want a fucking medal? None of those sims are /mlp/ related, there are 2 /mlp/ sims. You're a bunch of kikes and secondary tourists who primarily exist in your own bubble and the rest of the SL pony scene. Being a kike is fine, you can be a kike and still be /mlp/, being a secondary just makes you a faggot.
>>
>>39564987
Ah forgot to mention too but your Nightmare Night BOM was also something I really liked. Already had a "costume" of sorts for this year but I'd probably be wearing that next year.
>>
>>39564917
I agree with you, lips on horses in general look hideous 99% of the time and I wouldn't wear them on my normal avis.
The lips were made purely for the goth photoshoot because my eyeless face felt really lacking, and goth fashion kind of is adding as much unnecessary dark shit on yourself as possible.

>>39564987
>>39565006

That's fair enough anon. I'm glad you enjoy the things I produce along with the other HH, I am saddened that I will probably never know who you are, or that I will ever truly please you. The only horse I have that you would like would most likely be my Aurora clone. If this is how it must be then that's fine by me, I am glad you don't hate us as people. Also thank you, that is the (do date) most complex BOM set I have released publicly, I hope to top it this Halloween coming up but uh... uhhhh hard act to follow. I will try.

>>39565000
Nope. Stay cool!

I actually fell asleep at my desk and suddenly thread has 45 replies wtf

As a basically fringe HH, an oldfag to the board and SL, I just wanna elaborate on the point of --
Hollowhearts is literally a friend group that has been demonized bc they're big and have a lot of creators and hoo hoo ooooh scary when friends come together and make stuff.
It has happened like 2-3 times before in the past with ponies on SL, too, as history repeats itself.
tho in the past(not Hollowhearts, different friend group that got demonized) we joked in the open that we were a cult and would imply to strangers there was hazing and initiation

I'm hella fucking tired rn I don't even really know what I'm typing anymore

>cult of personality
About thirty threads ago we were talking about HollowHearts and how only one of them here thought they were the only Lewd One. For some reason many HH folks feel like they're not allowed to hop on a buck bed and be a slut unless it's in some off-grid spot because they have "the HH reputation" to maintain.
>>
>>39564980
Marj doesn't talk much because they can hardly speak English. So I don't think they want to draw attention to that.

Keep calling display name cliques "friend groups" normalfaggot.
Nobody can tell or cares if you're in a "friend group" until you pull that shit.

I still dont know what a hollow heart is

The long and short of it is it's a fag that adds "Hollowheart" to the end of their display name on Second Life because they associate with others that do the same.

fun fact: Hollowhearts exist that don't tack on the name. They're part of the friend group, but they don't use the display name. It's optional.
