Happy Thursday everypony!

I know, I know. I missed last week's normal update. Sadly, I got hammered with a cold plus allergies. Nasty little bugger. Now, originally I was going to have a bit more for you this week, but the whole team's been beset by an attack of the dreaded REAL LIFE! Blue Nova, our Art Director, is actually getting married at the end of October, (YAY!) but that means he sadly has less time available for GoE arts. As for me, I'm finishing up the LOD generation on the New and Improved Appleloosa Valley! That means Level-of-Detail, which is pretty much everything you see at a distance. All games use technology like this. It's a lot of work, but it'll turn out awesome. 

Trust me!

But, I do have some goodies for you, including a Fallout: Equestria icon. Yes, folks. It is none other than our rendition of PINKIE PIE IS WATCHING YOU FOREVER Poster! The very first Ministry poster Littlepip comes across after leaving Stable 2!

Seriously, Blue Nova did an epic job on this. Down to the tiny print in the bottom right! How awesome is this! /squee!

But wait there's more!

As you know, we've also decided to redo all the magazines and books in Fallout: New Vegas to their proper Fallout: Equestria variants. Now, while Kkat did all of the books, our esteemed worldbuilder did not attack the magazines (because there are way too bloody many). However, Somber had 1.5 million words to play with and he did tackle the books! So we're taking a page from his book (yes, pun very much intended) with...the Canterlot Journal of Medicine!

Damn, he's good. This one will be replacing "Today's Physician." It's it just lovely? 

That's the two major art reveals for this week, but I've got some non-GoE goodies to chat about.

As many of you know, I have recently embarked on a quest to prove to you all that I am indeed an author as I have claimed. And I am utterly delighted to say it looks like you folks believe me!

 

 

I'm utterly thrilled to report that both "The Application of Unified Harmony Magics" and "Grading on a Bell Curve" have been featured on Equestria Daily! Not only that, by my latest story, "Princess Celestia: A Brief History" was actually featured for a brief time in the Featured Box of FimFiction itself! /doublesquee

To those of you who have read them and fired off a like or comment, thank you kindly! If you're interested in seeing just what madness goes on in my head, feel free to check them out. I recommend starting with "Applications." 

I have several more short stories/novellas planned and an enormous novel for NaNoWriMo set in this alternate timeline I'm calling the Wavelenths Timeline. You'll be hearing more about that soon. 

But that's it for this week. Thanks everypony and have a great day!
