    well if you're going to redo them, may I suggest using the low poly models?

    Yes, they'll definitely be lower poly and not crash your Gmod after a spawning a few.

    Low poly models are not accurate. besides, mine are just fine as they are.

    Why not just keep the models as they are and leave Garry's Mod 13 to give up support of DirectX 8? Oh man, this is gonna be cool, plus like Left 4 Dead and later

    Code:
    SupportsDX8  0
    Mostly because the pony models don't get along very well with DirectX 8.1 and lower, they would rather prefer DirectX 9 Shader Model 3 and higher

    They're still going to be the same (more or less.), they are just going to be optimized (edited in a way) where they will not chew up the games FPS when spawned and they will not drastically eat up memory and ram.

    Wouldn't be so sure about that.

    And these are my computer specs, don't be jealous or surprised:

    Oh. I always thought the lower the poly, the less accurate the model.

    Yes in a sense, the low-poly models don't have excessive detail in parts that don't really go anywhere for the model. There is quite alot of detail on Celestia's equipment and some of it you can't even see. And all of that unwanted detail can slow down the game.

    Same with the TV series. Sometimes there are details too unimportant to make a good 3d model.

    In celestia's case, I think her rigged model was the low poly one.

    Hey oogaboogaman, when you said you wanted to redo the pony models I reacted with "Yes! Just what I wanted to hear/read/see!).

    Also, the "Blink" facial flex that Valve's character models normally have looks pretty useful as it blinks both eyes



    PS: I don't mind if Garry's Mod drops DX8 support, it needs RAM, memory and a nice graphics card to play well without too much lag

    He's dropping DX8 support? It would be pretty interesting to see a new pony pack full of revised and optimized ponies on Steamworks as the update comes.

    just so long as there is a steam works free version. I only find Steam works some what better than Toyvbox, but still worse than direct download.

    I didn't say that Garry is putting away DirectX 8, I said that I would not mind if Garry thought about removing DirectX8 Support!

    Think about what people mean in their comments before you start responding, or else you'll be considered weird because you do not understand what they're commenting/writing/typing about (This is what 9th Grade told me, but I knew it a long time ago too)

    Woah buddy calm down. I read it as a different context. You said you didn't mind if Garry drops DirectX 8 support, meaning that you could have read it somewhere and don't mind about the change, not that it's never going to happen and you are voicing your opinion.

    I do read posts before I reply to them. Excuse me for getting the wrong context on a vaguely worded post.

    If you're angry about something else, it's best not to bring it here to Facepunch. There's no reason to suddenly attack random people.

    Umm, I didn't read it anywhere. I looked in the gameinfo.txt of left 4 dead 2 and Portal 2 and thought that just maybe Garry could it like Left 4 Dead and later

    I just thought he could make use of it, as DirectX 8 does not support the full range of graphics effects (Directly from Valve Developer Community on the Gameinfo.txt). That's because Garry's Mod seems to be getting minor updates that may be related to shaders, and these pony models look like they were made in a Portal 2/Left 4 Dead 2 version of Maya if anyone without DirectX 9 Shader Model 3 graphics cards had the ponies rendered (The model studio that Valve uses, it's impressive work they put on their models)

    I don't know if it's just me or not, but I prefer skipping over the songs that the characters sing in the show itself and usually the parodies like the ones above.

    Ah. Unfortunatly, though, Diamond Tiara's lack of Tiara and Sweetie Belle's hair makes these models only almost accurate.

    Hey, nothing's perfect. Besides, it seems we're only just getting off the ground with people getting to modifying these models without KPShadowSqurill's contributions.

    It's interesting to see that people are going along with the hording of reskinning the original models to add in the other characters from the canon show, and then there is that 97% that make those god-awful reskins that you see around DA.

    I still hope for

    A proper Big Macintosh
    A proper Princess Luna with Season 2 hair
    Spike
    Braeburn
    Little Strongheart
    and Zecora.

    I do not care who does them, but just as long as they are as accurate as possible, I am as happy as a clam.

    Hey guys, just in case of NPCs. Maybe add the body_yaw, spine_yaw, head_yaw and head_pitch blending sequences? Here's the page for Blend sequences directly from Valve Developer Community

    And perhaps those animations with acts set to them used by the Citizens would come in handy? ACT_WALK + ACT_RUN, ACT_IDLE + ACT_IDLE_ANGRY and even ACT_WALK_CROUCH + ACT_RUN_CROUCH
