Do we have room in the budget for one of those dragon faxes? I could really use one for my office.
When was the last time you showed appreciation to your automated city manager?
Because Civilization V! If you want to, you can actually play as a pony civilization too. Detailed in this EQD post and brought to my attention by my Steam friends, whom I thank for it: www.equestriadaily.com/2012/07… Disclaimer: Yeah, I may have not paid as much attention to the tile values. Just approximates as I don't remember those. ^_^ I still love Civ 5!
I'm skipping my usual "Oh woe is me, why do I try so hard with the details" routine in the descritpion, because let's be honest, it's getting old. I think I'm starting to get the hang of feature placement on pony faces and the like. The next thing I will want to work on is making the faces themselves more flexible and adjusting body proportions. Maybe try long-limbed ponies and "cartoonier" faces? We'll see.
Oh dear Luna, I remember when I first discovered that there were pony mods for Civ V; my play time for that game quintupled within a week
I like your current style of art; it's has a nice appeal to it (and it's also relatively unique). On the other hand, changing up your style once in a while might also be good, at least for variety if nothing else (in response to your description). It's up to you, really Also, is that guard yelling out that letter? Anyway, I get the feeling that managing Ponyville's food production might actually be easier than it is in Civ V O_o
"When was the last time you showed appreciation to your automated city manager?" Yeah, I probably could show a little more appreciation than ignoring everything my advisers say, re-arranging where the citizens in cities work all the time, and building everything in no particular order...
Also, a pony civilization? It's nice that you've found that, but it's been a few months so I hope you know by now that's not the only one... After all, your game can be so much more!
If not, then I recommend that you, as well as anyone else here who has Civilization V on Steam, to go to the Steam Workshop and looks for these mods, as I feel you might be interested in them:
First, Ponification. This one doesn't change any specific Civs, it just ponifies universal portions of the game (social policies, advisers, some non-unique units, etc). It's a nice addon to have if you're going to be playing with pony Civs.
Speaking of which, here are the names of the thirteen mods I have that add pony civilizations (as well as the leaders pertaining to each):
New Lunar Republic (Luna)
Equestria (Celestia) Note: there's actually two mods for her that both were recently updated; which one to get depends upon your preference, really.
The New Crystal Empire (Cadance)
The Old Crystal Empire (King Sombra)
Chaoticus Draconequus (Discord)
Night Eternal (Nightmare Moon)
Changeling Empire (Chrysalis)
Princess of Friendship (Twilight Sparkle)
Masters of the Earth (Chancellor Puddinghead)
Masters of the Art (Princess Platinum)
Masters of the Sky (Commander Hurricane)
The Great and Conquering Trixie (Trixie)
Democratic Ponies' Republic of Equestria (Pinkamena. Yes, that one.)
Several of these have different versions based on what expansions you have, but they all work with both G&K and BNW in some way or the other, so no major limitations for expansions as far as I can tell. Anyway, if you do decide to check those out, have fun with them!
