With the climate clearly growing colder to the top of the map and warmer to the bottom, we can assume that the equator is in the lower reaches or below the edge and the near pole is off the top, correct? So for Canterlot to be between Ponyville and the sun at any time, it would need to be closer to the bottom of the map; the reverse is true. If I bothered to examine it closely I'm sure I could find more logical errors or missing canon.
Not so; the farther north you are, the farther north the sun rises and sets in the summer (but the lower in the sky it peaks at noon).

Consider the extreme case of standing on the arctic circle on the summer solstice. The sun never sets at all; at local midnight, it's straight north from you, peeking over the north pole. It rolls around the whole sky and returns to that position 24 hours later, staying close to the horizon the whole time. At noon, it's low in the south.

Now move slightly south from there. The sun does dip below the northern horizon at midnight, but rises shortly after midnight, just to the east of straight north. It circles the entire sky, then sets just on the other side of north a few minutes shy of the following midnight.

I can't believe I'm going to bat for Cadence, but I guess she's grown on me a bit.

First, she was sealed in a chamber about the size of a jail cell until Twilight blasted her out. The glitter of light she sees is over Twi's shoulder, which is where Twilight entered the cell -- through what was a wall until moments before. I imagine a talent for love doesn't make you good at destructive spells, and thanks to the reflective crystals, even Twi nearly fried herself on the first shot. I absolutely don't fault Cadence for not escaping on her own.

Second, Cadence was down there for days, if not a week or more. There was no evidence of food or water down there. I'm somewhat surprised she could walk out under her own power in the first place, much less run to the exit and glide while carrying Twilight! No wonder Twilight put her in the mine cart for the bulk of the trip.

Oh story time!

Okay so today I had a moment of weakness and dropped 400 dollars on a new system made from scratch. Goats only basics like processor dvdrom board tower graphics and hdd now I gotta run a restore from a system image on an external hdd. Hope it works. AMD FX 6100 gigabyte ga 970 mob. 8 gb ram. And a gigabyte gt 630 graphics card... I'm worried about power supply since mine does a Max of 430w and the graphics says 330w and the CPU uses 120w
It would be under powered for now.. I plan on using a system restore from an external hdd from a boot disk for my laptop to upload the system image I have on the hdd. I hope it works problem is I need a monitor to actually start the process since my television does not show the boot process at all. I'm rather excited.

At 4 there was a Houston brony meet up and I got to meet with one of the frequent forum members there. We hung out did introductions and then went off to get dinner at Buffalo wild wings. They thought we were a fantasy football group.
Got to give a little testimony to one of the employees there he heard of mlp but has never seen the show itself.

All in all it was enjoyable and the cider did flow. Apples made some money for sure

Studio B will never get to talk back to Hasbro because they can always pull the "without us you wouldn't exist with this project" card, so that's the way it's gotta be with whatever they throw out. They'll never have true creative freedom with the brand.

I don't see any reason that would be a problem, but it might need to be scaled up a bit to accommodate the larger gauge and height.

Everything you said is consistent. But based on the information we actually have, I don't personally think there's either strong reason to believe she is an alicorn or that she is not. We just haven't seen enough to really tell, and there hasn't been anything in terms of expository dialogue or narration. I have, sadly, been working from the pessimistic assumption that she is one--I would be ecstatic to find that that is not the case (especially if a good explanation is in the deal), and would rather set myself up to be pleasantly surprised than disappointed. In the mean time, I readily admit that I'm always happier to see fics where she is either uninvolved or different from the Sisters, with explanations of why she appears as she does.

Regarding the genetic argument: it does make a great deal of sense. However, I worry that there are a lot of coincidences there. Cadence is a sport as a unicorn with wings; I cannot recall seeing a mare of her size apart from Celestia or Luna, who by a quick comparison might be slightly larger (I think Luna is about a head taller than the Mane Six, while Cadence is about half a head taller); she is a princess. Unless they are connected, that's a lot to occur all in one individual.

Fleur is the same height and similar body type (little bit skinnier IIRC). And Canterlot unicorns seem to be consistently taller than average, especially in the higher class.


Anyway, given two explanations which both fit the visible evidence, one of which makes perfect sense given my current understanding of the world but would be somewhat unlikely, and the other of which requires a complete restructuring of the fictional cosmos, I favor the first until more evidence arises.
I concede that Cadence could, given what we've seen, been an Alicorn Princess, but I will not believe that she is until evidence is presented which suggests this as more correct than my own theory.

I'm sorry, but... why is this pessimistic? If we get all pegan about it we can consider a pantheon of goddesses. In Greek myth Zeus was undoubtedly stronger than Aphrodite, and has far more important responsibilities. It doesn't make Aphrodite no longer a divine to not be comparable to Zeus, but she has her own role to fill.

In the MLP world these paragons don't really hold up as the goddesses in this case are of a far lesser and more mundane variety, but hopefully you get my point. A lesser alicorn princess goddess, mostly due to status and purpose, but in no way some sort of genetic mutation.

I was addressing the "distressed damsel" point more than anything else. I agree with your "pessimists are pleasantly surprised" point, but I expect we'll learn things we never expected with the Crystal Empire arc.

Well, it does sort of invalidate a lot of people's headcanon (which is not-even-slightly-sacred, of course) if Cadance is a true alicorn (which is a word that has not even been said in the show, of course). It also raises questions about the first episode's mythos of Luna and Celestia, and why Cadance wasn't mentioned. There are explanations for this - potentially compelling ones, in my estimation - but some people are understandably unhappy with the idea that Cadance is a true alicorn nonetheless, worrying that Studio B doesn't really have a plan to incorporate her believably into the Celestia/Luna pantheon, so to speak. Personally, I'm out on this one - I like Cadance fairly well so far, as fairly undeveloped characters go, and I think that there could be some interesting ways her existence could be dealt with. Link her appearance to the appearance of Celestia and Luna themselves, so long ago, perhaps. Maybe Cadance appeared because she would be needed, or maybe the psychic field of ponies in harmony created her as it did Luna and Celestia. Maybe I'm completely off base and crazy (well... probably!). Point is, I get why people are concerned, but I'm not going to worry about Studio B messing this up unless it actually happens.

(If they do throw canon out the window, I'll be disappointed, but there's already plenty of very good, very cool fanon from S1/S2 out there to immerse myself in.)

GAAAH. After lurking on this topic for weeks and keeping on having things to say but not saying them, I can't take it any more. I'm finished. I'll just join the forum already.
*pant, pant, pant*

On the map, I really like it. It fits in decently well with both FIM and F:E canon, and has some nice coincidental alignments with F:E like a gorge with a river running through it near Appleoosa (for the chimera stable) and a couple mountains between said gorge and Appleoosa for the train to run over. Yes it needs the railway on the map to be slightly shifted, but that's easily handwaved as being part of the infrastructure improvements going on throughout Equestria in the years leading up to the war. Also it's great to have a reference handy for fanfic authors and Studio B to use. Hoofington easily fits south of the map, since it's next to the zebras, has a super rainy climate, is near Spike's mountain (which LittlePip said was way out of her area), and being south of the border would even make it one of the farthest towns from Ponyville, so Trixie would be secure in making claims of Ursa Major slaying. As for Trottingham, my headcanon is it's on an island off Equestria's coast, and I'm kinda glad the map hasn't disproved it. After mentally tracing LittlePip's journey on the map, the only serious discrepancy I found was the short distance between Manehattan and Fillydelphia. That's explained by the "Not To Scale" thing, Manehattan could be on more of a peninsula that juts east and has that hilly country on it, and it was truncated to fit in the map.

On the picture of a pony of indeterminate gender: judging by the chiseled jaw, I thought stallion, and a rather sexy stallion too. Totally wanted to kiss him when I saw him.

On a mutant Cadance being too much of a coincidence: Word of Lauren has it that Blueblood is kind of Celestia's nephew but many generations removed, so I guess that makes him a descendant of Luna. Cadance is stated somewhere official to be Celestia's niece, so she must have a similar relation. Being descended from an alicorn makes genetic quirks that make one similar to an alicorn a hell of a lot more likely.

Lauren called him Celestia's "great great great great great great great great great great great (and probably even more greats) nephew on Celestia's and Luna's mother's side, about 52 times removed, roughly speaking." There is however no mention of Luna having reproduced, and the fact that the 'times-removed' terminology is not generally applied to nephews tends to muddy the issue slightly...

Fun fact: he was originally a duke but was changed to a prince per Hasbro's request.

of meaning to me, and I'm always going to treasure it.


One more thing! Did you all know about this already?

I don't see any reason that would be a problem, but it might need to be scaled up a bit to accommodate the larger gauge and height.
What do you mean?

Well, I think that I've made a lot of progress today. (On a related note, it's 0635! Wheeee!) Some images of what the thing looks like at the moment:



I think that I may need to move the horns back to make room for the forward turrets...
(Oh, and the vents have water drains (not shown) at the bottom of their troughs and integrated anti-snow/ice heaters. Oh, and, in the event that both main antenna assemblies are destroyed, emergency ones can be deployed from inside the armor once it's safe to do so. Though going off the air for too long without first sending the proper codes will trip an alert on the network anyway.)
Oh, forward vents are cooling and combustion intake, rear vents and cooling and combustion exhaust.

I'm thinking green with a yellow top and lettering for the NETC livery. Opinions? Oh, and I was planning to use four quadbarrel 30mm machinegun turrets for armament, but, looking at it now, I think that I might bump it up to six... I'm not sure.

And now off towards sleep!

Not necessarily. If Celestia ceremonially married or adopted the childless Prince of Canterlot, his brother and that brother's descendants would all be Celestia's nephews and nieces.

My headcanon says that she did so in return for a place in the castle after her own palace was destroyed by her fight with Nightmare Moon. Though I'll note that, since Luna uses the "Royal Canterlot Voice", I assume the palace in Everfree was already called Canterlot and the current Canterlot took on the name when Celestia moved in.

Anyway.

The armament of 16 30mm autocannons seems excessive for antipersonnel work and inadequate against heavy armor. Anything light enough to be flying might as well self-destruct on the ground, though, especially with ball turrets.

What is this thing for, anyway? You go into precise details of Equestrian rail measure and you render an armed train car. I am looking forward to seeing what this'll be.

Quick question: what color is BJ's magic? And how the glow color, in general, is defined?

It either used to be red and is now white, or it used to be white and is now red. I can't remember which.

Gezz... why did I never have any problems getting this game to run? I mean, I'm not currently trying to re-install it, but... eh.

My old machine ran it first time, without any modifications, but would occasionally crash at places.
(It was never designed to run on win7)
For this new machine, I installed a DLL to make it appreciate win7, changed one line of code to make it appreciate quad core capabilities, and added one line to allow it to run 4gig of RAM, rather then the standard 2.

@Magic color: I always thought it was white. I think it was put at red at some point though.

Also: Welcome to the thread, nebulous.
