Overview

This post will act as a living document of model ideas proposed by the community to the handful of modelers in the group.  

Goal:
We are a community of SFM artists (perhaps a few modelers too), but a common issue we run into is a lack of models.  Something I have noticed when talking with a few of the more active users is that we kinda know what we want, but it is all transient knowledge.  Instead of continuing this trend, I'm creating a more permanent and accessible resource for the question of "what should I model" some modelers (including myself) sometimes have.

For the purposes of this document, the focus is on models that could be useful for the community as a whole.  Stuff like Ponyville props, bone-mergeable props, maps, etc.  

Note:  There is no guarantee your proposed model idea will be modeled.  This is not a requests thread, rather, it's a reference for modelers.

Guidelines:
- Be specific.
- Provide reference images if at all possible.
- Keep ideas relevant to the needs of the community (so no OC model requests, but OC props might be fine)  
- Brainstorm as many ideas you'd like.
- Map ideas are fine too
- Don't pester modelers to make it.  

Modelers:
If you want to, post a comment stating that you would like to create/are creating the model.  No need to duplicate efforts if we don't have to.  If you have an idea that you also intend to make for the community (and are willing to share), please note the idea and that you are making it.  It is also probably best practice to only claim a couple at a time, and relinquish the claim if you are no longer able/willing to make it.

Maps


General guidelines

 It's a plus to make night and day versions.  Add realistic city backdrops in skymap.  Add detail where detail is due.  Example:  Throne rooms and other areas often used in the show.


Complete Castle and Grounds
- Twilight's Castle in Ponyville
- Canterlot Castle
- Castle of the Two Sisters in the Everfree Forest
- Crystal Empire Castle

Exterior-Only
The focus here should be on placement and detail appropriate for ponies of the current scale.  Most maps are so blank or have building models too far apart.  It's hard to get a grasp of the scale of the cities as it is, and translating to 3D is kinda hard. Collaboration and testers are necessary to make sure it feels "real".
- City :: Overhauled Ponyville
- City :: Canterlot
- City :: Cloudsdale
- City ::Manehattan

Interior-Only
These maps are for interior shots.  Interiors, especially living spaces, are often densely populated with objects.  Focus your detail as best you can within the limitations of Source.

- House :: Fluttershy's cottage
- House :: Rainbow Dash's cloudhouse
- House :: Twilight's tree library
- House :: Rarity's Carousel Boutique
- House :: Pinkie Pie's Bakery and upstairs apartment
- School :: Ponyville Schoolhouse :: Glaber
- Environment :: Cave under Canterlot Castle (where Cadence was imprisoned)
- Environment :: Cave in Hearts Warming Eve episode
- Environment :: Mountain Map (Ep Dragonshy)

A character who deserves a GMod/SFM model in my opinion: www.derpibooru.org/1701835?q=c…

Any second opinions? Anyone?
