I do believe it is time for best G5 poner's first very own thread!

Will Kimiko reprise her for the series? What kind of arc are you hoping she'll have? Is she your first waifu, or are you rebounding?

hello /mlp/ it is me again if you recall i discovered that when im really high i like to go on 4chan and have threads like theres nothin as fun as that while high for some reason so i always wanna do it instead of watching tv. but yeah at first i tried /vp/ but they didnt wanna talk about pokemon, then i trued /v/ and they did wanna talk about video games but just a little. and then i tried /mlp/ and it was a chill thread. everyone was so nice. last time on that thread we mentioned background ponies and i thought that was a fun topic so this time lets again post good background ponies. i looked at a list of all and i like twinkleshine. she looks like rarity. my favorite is still derpy though.

anyway this doesnt even have to be about the background ponies if you want this can just be a chill thread where we talk about anything. it can be something you like or something you dont like. enjoy. what are you playing tonight /mlp?

What were they thinking with this design? Why can't girls' cartoons even have girly looking characters anymore? All the mane 6 in g4 looked like girls, even Rainbow Dash was obviously a girl. But because how our society is these days that's too offensive apparently so they made this monstrosity. Just look at that hair it's fucking disgusting. This is the ugliest design they could have come up with for one of the mane 5. The other designs look incredibly generic and like someone's OCs but this specific one stands out as horrible.

Not to mention it sounds like a fucking man too.

This scene made me tear up. Everyone I've talked to that has watched the movie has said the same. Pure, absolute soul.

Hitch = Fluttershy
Sunny = Twilight
Pipp = Rarity
Zipp = Rainbow Dash
Izzy = Pinkie Pie

I guess they really just did get rid of Applejack didn't they?

Animals love Hitch, Izzy literally even hops around like pinkie pie, the pegasus are blatantly obvious, Sunny went full twilycorn in record time.
All the G5 characters display traits similar of the main cast from G4, except Applejack... No one is like her.

She's gone, not even her element lives on with a new pony, she's just gone.

/FoE/ - Fallout Equestria: A Post Apocalyptic Pony Thread

No.37581137 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
What could have been edition

Fallout Equestria, a story that bleeds two franchises together to build something magical. On one side, you have death, destruction, decay, and misery - on the other, you have ponies. Doesn't sound like it should mix? You'd be surprised. When the world around you is wasteland, all you're left with is hope, and as we all know, ponies can do spectacular things with just a little hope.
Previous thread: >>37499122

Read Fallout Equestria by Kkat to appreciate the setting that many writers have then lent upon after being so captivated by the wonders.

The original story which spawned its own fandom can be found here: http://www.fimfiction.net/story/119190/

These next four stories comprise the rest of what is considered "the big 5", alongside the original. They were biggest hitters early in the fandom, be it for having started before many others, their length, or overall quality.

Project Horizons:
https://www.fimfiction.net/story/208056/

Pink Eyes:
https://www.fimfiction.net/story/931/

Murky Number Seven:
https://www.fimfiction.net/story/47300/

Heroes:
https://www.fimfiction.net/story/662/

Though, a reminder; just because these are the most well known, that isn't to say that there aren't other stories out there! There are many hidden gems that simply don't get the love they deserve purely because people don't give them the chance. Why not open your heart and try to find a new favorite? Anons are absolutely welcomed and encouraged to return with fic discussion of even the most obscure fics!

Fan games:

Fallout Equestria: Remains is a Fallout Equestria Rouge like. It is the best thing to come of the fandom recently. Seriously go play it https://foe-remains.gitlab.io/main_en.html

Balefire Blues is a Hearts of Iron IV mod. In it you take control over various FoE factions seeking to conquer the wasteland. steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2307988796

Ashes Town is a derivative of Pony Town in the Fallout Equestria universe.

Google Drive Soon to be Blocking Access to (Pony) Content

No.37510688 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
>Oh great, now what?
So Google's going to be updating their Google Drive policy on September 13th by requiring resource keys for access to any files, and, therefore, blocking access to any GDrive links posted before then. This will effectively restrict any pony content hosted on Google Drive (including things like videos, game downloads, mods, music, anything else under the sun) from being accessed if you happen to come upon the link to it later on down the road, as it's being applied *by default* across all personal Google Drive accounts.
https://support.google.com/drive/answer/10729743

>Why the fuck
Same type of reason that the unlisted videos thing happened. Similarly, more recent files may not be affected, but that was never explicitly stated unlike last time.

>Is there anything this doesnt affect?
Yes, Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Forms won't be affected, but everything else probably will be.
An individual user can also change whether they want their files to have the security update applied, but, again, it's applied by default, you'd have to go and change the option manually, and some things like folder links do not allow an opt-out.

>How can I help?
The best thing to do is posting links in-thread (scraped or not) as the Google API can be scraped for resource keys, even for old stuff, so they can (hopefully) be saved after the fact.

Suggesting websites to look through.
Saving what you know of and can find, prioritizing folder links if possible.
Rehosting it somewhere else (preferably not GDrive) so people can still access it, posting in-thread, and possibly even commenting about the availability under your new link on the forum, post, or wherever you found the link, if applicable.

Google also says if you've accessed a GDrive link before, you'll still be able to access it with a resource key. So if anyone happens to have accessed a ton of stuff over the years or just wants to do a mad spree of accessing whatever they can, and then dump those links here after the resource keys go into effect, that would be neat. This is only a theory though, not 100% certain it'll work.

>Website examples (the usual suspects)
-EQD
-Derpy News
-https://eqmegathreads.blogspot.com/
-EquestriaGaming.net
-Ponychan, especially the /fan/ and /collab/ boards as many projects were organized there over the years (going through Internet Archive captures would be good too)
-any pastebins/ponepastes/etc. that contain lists of stuff (think like the gaming thread's or tempo's list)
-there's probably stuff contained in DeviantArt journals
-forums and sites like Rainbow Dash Network
-Desu
-post others you can think of

Try and do google searches for things like "mlp/pony games list" or "top 100 pony/brony songs of 2012". Lots of times GDrive links are collections people have put together so try and think of that or of specific lists you remember from over the years.

Unfortunately, GDrive links are more difficult to come by than most links, but just do your best.

G5 and G4 are set in different universes

No.37591982 ViewReplyOriginalReport
So, yesterday i've finally watched the movie and after giving it some thought came to the conclusion that g5 and FiM are, in fact, set in different universes.

First of all, i find it highly unrealistic that after hundreds of years of unity, peace and friendship, with annual heart's warming eve festivities reminding ponies about the dangers of strife and after mane 6 literally saved the world with the power of friendship multiple times in the span of couple years ponies would just simply discard all of this and start hating each other. Ok, fine, maybe millennia had passed, all these stories about world-saving friendship became legends nobody believed in and Equestria somehow fell apart.

However, we see that in G5 different tribes of ponies hate each other and because of that they can't use magic. But if that's the case, then why ponies before the unification of Equestria, while also hating each other, could use magic? Where are the Windigos? Where are Celestia, Luna, Cadance and Twilight, immortal alicorn princesses? If magic doesn't work, who controls the sun and moon? Where is Discord? There's simply too much stuff that doesn't align with everything we know about ponies, the world shown in the movie couldn't exist in G4 equestria.

There's a couple of things that don't quite fit in this theory, namely, figurines of mane 6 ponies in Sunny's room and Twilight's cutie mark on Sunny's journal and on that stained glass in the pegasus city. However, since we don't see any mentions of mane 6 anywhere else i think that those figurines are simply random figurines of earth ponies, pegasi and unicorns and aren't replicas of any real ponies that ever lived in the G5 world, and they look like main 6 simply because Hasbro wanted to make a reference. The same with Twilight's cutie mark - it's a reference to G4 and in context of G5 doesn't hold any connection with Twilight, because Twilight never existed in that world.

tl;dr
G4 and G5 are set in different universes because the world shown in the movie couldn't exist if it operated by the rules of g4. All mentions of mane 6 are simply meta references and don't mean anything in the context of g5.
