  1. Hello everypony, I have been meaning to do this formally for awhile, but I feel somewhat compelled to put an explanation up for the events that have kind of happened with me and PonyvilleSquare recently, as I am under the impression having discussed it with a variety of people that my position may be unclear to some people. I firstly want to state that it was never my wish or desire to leave PonyvilleSquare. I care about the community and the friends I've made here, and this wonderful server that's been a pretty big part of my life for the past year and a half now. My choice to leave was based on the logic of where my position was at the time, as well as where my interests lie so far as playing My Little Pony in Minecraft, and how things have played out over time. I will not attempt to persuade you otherwise of your opinions that you have made of me over my time on the server, I'm sure you have your reasons for viewing me in which ever way you do. I would simply ask that you understand what the situation looked like from my prospective, and why it made sense for me to pursue the course of action I took. As most of you who know me here are aware, over the last 6 months or so, I have been on a somewhat uncertain path concerning the direction I should take as a member of the server. I like the server very much and want to contribute to it, however at the same time I felt pretty weak and like no one would listen to me regardless of what I said. This is not exactly the most pleasant, or workable kind of situation to be in. It perhaps might have not been the reality of the situation, but it was nevertheless my perception of it. For the first few months I tried to continue helping out as best as I could considering what I thought I was capable of doing. However over time it seemed to me that my participation in the server was not really developing along the same lines as the direction I was going, and I did not feel capable of either helping in the direction the server was moving in, or continuing in working in my interests, considering my access to the required material resources to progress in either direction. Overtime, the resulting lethargy left me somewhat depressed, as I did not feel able to be of any active participation in the server I enjoyed. Every possible task I could have under taken towards the benefit of the server, was for me, best done outside the server. This includes any building projects I would undertake, as building outside of PVS on a private server where access to building tools is unrestricted, is much easier and more efficient for a given effort, than going without those tools within the PVS server itself. Therefore, it would be more practical for any PVS building project I wanted to do, for me to do it elsewhere, and then just submit a schematic file of my work to the administration. This steadily got worse, until pretty much I concluded that the only thing I could really do on PVS was interact with my friends there, which was significantly easier to do through the chat program Discord, so I started spending less and less time on the server, and more of my time in chat. Also during this time and through discussions with friends, I realized that I just fundamentally was not interested in the COL survival server. Though I was developing the Outlands world at the time. I completed that project hoping that others would be able to enjoy it, but by the point I really knew it just was never going to be for me, and it would be best for me to break my ties to it completely, which would mean getting rid of my town and all the rest of my connections to it. My town was at the point nearly completely inactive, so it made sense to me that any players within my town, would be best seeking to be in a town that was active and going to continue, or in starting a new town on the foundations of CCCP under their own vision, than continuing with what I knew was going to eventually break and collapse due to neglect, because I simply was not interested in the game at a fundamental level. After that, I continued most of my minecraft projects I had with Mystic, who owns what is now Enclave Equestria. The idea being I would be able to continue my work with him, in a place that I was not limited to being completely incapable. This continued on for awhile and became the "PVS test server" idea, where me and Mystic could develop and test stuff for PVS and work on adding new features in a separate medium. However, this method of development fairly soon led to some pretty intense anxiety and mistrust between members of PVS and me and Mystic. The resulting rift in relations has remained ever since pretty much. This added stress of interaction combined with a position I thought was already hopeless so far as me having a plausible future with PVS and wanting to contribute. Eventually led me to conclude that the best course of action would be to leave PVS and continue development independently, as a stand alone server developing separate ideas. I discussed this with Mystic, and together we reset up the server he called "Enclave Equestria" My ultimate idea with this was to create a server more focused on roleplaying elements than on PVS's building focus. I do wish to apologize to those who I have hurt in the course of my actions, I know that the choices I have made have not been without pain and anxiety to those around me. I would reiterate that I very much enjoy and appreciate this server, and it pained me as well to leave. Some of you may never forgive me for what I have done in doing this, but I would like to strive towards trying to make amends for the past. I am ultimately just a person like all of the rest of you here, and I do not wish for the decisions I made to prevent maintaining positive relations with those who play here. It was never in my intentions to cause harm to the community by leaving, I simply became desperate and saw no other valid option. However, it is well within possibility that I may have made an error in assuming that the goals and directions of this server are in fact so very different than those I am interested in. So in all due respect I would like to ask the administration and the server as a whole if it would be okay for me to post a summary of the sort of direction me and Mystic are taking Enclave Equestria in, as it may yet to be to both of our mutual benefits to put the pain of the past behind us and work together again. Thank you for taking the time to read my long and somewhat depressing speech. I know for some of you discussing me is not a pleasant topic. I wish it could be otherwise. but such is the situation as I am currently informed it stands, and I can only thank you for considering this request despite the harshness that has led to it. Sincerely, HellSteedTrotsky
  2. There is the ever looming desire, "Unite the 'lings!" since you have like three separate hives. Or maybe it should be, "Unite the Mini Hepolite Alicorns!" for how OP they are.
  3. sure, can add skill with scimitars to Arabian ponies (that sub build of Earth Pony) Mostly sand related and endurance skills with this kind. Of the MLP races, they look the closest to actual horses and so will probably be swifter than normal earth ponies. As for nightmares, I need to revise that skill list. Having played one for awhile. I would say that they are great against other players, but that in their home environment in the nether, they really suck. This needs to be repaired somehow.
  4. I will not be running or taking part in this roleplay anymore so if someone else wants to help manage it they can take it over, otherwise it will probably just get shutdown eventually.
  5. Bunch of stuff I uploaded to thingiverse over these last few days. Needed to clear out some of my files: Miniature My Little Pony roleplaying figurine pack http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2016608 Miniature My Little Pony roleplaying terrain pack http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2018805 FoE New Pegasus pack http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2004576
  6. Got more 3D models uploaded

  7. Needs to be updated to 1.11.2 again.
  8. Can we move it so that info is the primary tab on the forums, and move the forums one over? I've yet to find a single greymane that even knew the location of the info page without prior being informed, and I think the slight inconvenience of more regular users needing to bookmark the page would not be very major at all compared to making sure that the new comers are properly informed.
  9. There are lots to choose from right here: http://ponyvillelive.com/
  10. Okay, yeah that sucks.
  11. Happy Birthday Cat Actor

  12. Hello
  13. You start school on Saturday? That's interesting.
  14. Welcome back James, good to see you again. So is this mostly a group of players versus an ongoing scenario? or more of players fighting each other?
  15. If you wish to join the roleplay at this time, you can meet up with Electric Arc and Solar Star in Ponyville.
