Welcome to the release page for Ponyville Environments! This package includes everything you need to create your own scenes in Ponyville. All of these assets have been built in such a way that you can create your own arrangements and scenes without restriction. There are 8 unique buildings to work with, all which have been compiled twice with a mirrored variants to increase the potential amount of uses. Every building has their own "Ground Base" (GB), a small terrain platform that building rests on. Each building with their GB can be placed on a large flat plane called the "Ground Canvas". In addition to this, there is an assortment of vegetation, ground details, props, and hill models that can be used to the decorate your scene and make it feel natural.
Ponyville Environments - Core Objects
These are the primary models used for creating the scene layout you want and will dictate the design of your scene. There are 8 total building models, all shown here with their respective ground base. At the very bottom you find a small collection of detail props. These small items can be used to decorate your scene even further by adding small paths, rocks, weeds, etc.
The below models are the vegetation props, all of the bushes and plants. With this set of models you get the major bush models that are usually found beside buildings, a couple large bush models seen in the background and one very big tree. Some of these bush models have an alternate skin for their appearance during winter after snow that makes them appear frosty. On the micro scale there are also 9 small squiggle models. These models are items that can help with decorating the ground and give it those small drawn details like you see in the cartoon.
These additional objects were created to help differentiate a scene and add more possibilities in scene building. They were created for specific scenes in the animation but can serve just as useful for whatever scene you decide to make. The first model is a commonly seen wishing well. The well has 4 bodygroups, allowing you to customize its appearance by turning off its components (for example the bucket). There is also a model of a simple river, the flow and movement of the water is animated. There are also three small hill models of different sizes, each of these have five different skins. The small hills let you add lumps to the terrain so that an area doesn't appear too flat.
The Hill Models
When it comes to building the background, the hill models below play a very important role. These can be used to detail the far background and break up the distant horizon. I also encourage you to use the hills found in my Sweet Apple Acres release alongside these.
This is a small addition to the Ponyville set that allows you to add detailed snow two of the building models and the bushes that were seen earlier with an alternate frozen skin. The three small hill models seen under "Additional Objects" have a snow skin as well, letting you create lumps or piles of snow on the terrain.
Sheesh, lots to show, lots to work with!
3D Model Madness
You've seen my XPS mods, now you can get access to them. Majority of them if not all of them were created to be used with cel-shaders.
Discopears' 2015 Year in Review
Where to begin... This year has no doubt been crazy, from a never ending stream of constant challenges being thrown my way and yet seeming to somehow be one of my most productive. When this year started I found myself having to adjust back to a life I had long hoped to be left behind, enduring the hardships of once again losing my home and belongings as I became homeless a second time. However, among such hardships I have built some amazing memories and experiences I couldn't be anymore thankful for. I was able to keep myself busy, spend quality time with my brother, graduate from high school, make awesome progress with my artwork a
Ponyville - Explorable (Sketchfab)
Hey there! I just made a small explorable environment of Ponyville for Sketchfab using my free models from Discopears' MLP Assets Hub and some personal additions made in Blender. I have all my models on Sketchfab as part of the release but I never actually made a scene with the Ponyville models. Well, here it is! Let me know what you think, had a lot of fun creating the little environment surrounding the area. PS: I know it's not technically 'accurate', I just wanted to make my own little scene. =) Check out the others if you haven't seen them already! Isn't Sketchfab awesome?? Editing and getting my work on there was completely worth t
TTF Release Update - Blender + Source Files
Hi there! Today I'm happy to say that I've just updated the A True, True Friend Animation Assets Release :D The Blender files have now been released! Took a little longer to get these up than I originally planned because I got preoccupied with some things that came up, but nonetheless here they are. :) With these files now available you should easily be able to make your own changes, take a closer look at the models, and be far more open to using them without restraint! If you use my assets in something, please let me know because I'd love to see what you made and let you know what I think. Lots of love and labor went into all these assets,
Help and FAQ - TTF Animation Assets
NOTICE: This page is an active project. I will add to this whenever I find something that can help others in making best use of these models in their own projects If you need help with something that is not here, please feel free to ask in the comments or send me a PM. If a big enough issue, I'll add it to the FAQ below. :) Do these work in Garry's Mod? Yes! They should work just fine for posing and making your own scenes there as well. However, they don't have collisions yet so actually playing with them might be kind of lame. I'm currently working on a proper gmod version that will let take all the props and throw them around. I mean, w
