Do you use btRaycastVehicle or custom actors/constrains ?

Kinda anyone, I guess. We're only adding stuff that's been in the show, and the show's for kids, so...

Nargil wrote:Do you use btRaycastVehicle or custom actors/constrains ?

We use that as a base, yeah, but there's a whole bunch of other stuff surrounding it to let it drift, stop it from flipping over when it lands, limiting its maximum speed, etc

You guys are amazing, the publicity you have is very impressive, I mean ~40k views in a day ? If you made this commercial you would strike gold.

The game itself looks graphically polished, but the carts seem a bit static - you should loosen the suspension, so it doesn't feel like they're racing on a flat track even after a jump.

Looks great. Project is obviously coming along very nicely.

Edit: One thing led to another and I found myself taking the My Little Pony Personality Quiz. I'm just like: Twilight Sparkle.

Borderline to annoying :D !

But the game looks quite polished, but I second the cart physics comment from above. Could use an extra degree of realism. But I really like that the tail/hair of the pony moves according to the cart moves!

And an a related note: I like the music and was really exicted when I thought that I had realized that the music mimics the on-screen actiion = when there was this long sort of slow-motion jump, this dreamy music part started, but I was a bit dissappointed when it continued even after the pony landed and the movie speed was back to normal.

Wow, looks great! What is really great is that the visual style looks very faithfull to these animated drawing movies.
Same remarks as the other here (kart/ponytail).
For the trees outside the road, did you use separate entities, or is there some instancing techniques?

Tried using instancing but it ended up being really slow, so they use static geometry.

Stupid question,

do you have permission to use the ponies. Would be a shame if you have to throw it all away short before finishing the game, just because you didn't ask in the beginning.
Happened to many god fan games ;(

My Little Pony Online and Equestria Online haven't been taken down yet (although both look way less developed than this), so things could be ok for now.
But then again, the ponies are owned by Hasbro, the company that sued the makers of the game Scrabulous because it was too similar to Scrabble, and sued Clue Computers because their name was similar to the board game Clue (it wasn't even a game company).
They're not as bad as Disney though (never try to make an unlicensed Disney game, the lawyers will be at your door before you even finish compiling the code).

Fighting is Magic is another pony fangame that's pretty developed, and it's probably the most well-known one as well, and they haven't gotten in any trouble yet either.

At the beggining of the video is the message: "PonyKart is an *opensource* game with no intention to generate profit". On which license do you intend to release it? I'm asking because I think of some opensource (Free-Software) racing games that uses bullet as physic engine (SuperTuxKart, for example) that could share some of yours bulet-solutions (and also, you could borrow something from them too)...

As the game source code is unrelated with the potential "copyrighted-infrigment" game content, your really amazing work won't be fully lost in the case Hasbro intends to take "PonyKart" down (it'll be a shame, but is something that could happen)...

Anyway, excellent work!

Chances are good that they don't mind as long as you don't make money out of it. The moment you start selling things you can be sure those lawyers will be paying you a visit. ;)
I think this is a very reasonable and fair policy. After all, who would really mind some free advertising, as long as your image isn't being put in a bad context. Rather, having people that pay tribute to your original work like this should really be received positively.
