Let there be PONY!

Warnings about Homosexual content are the norm. There have been times when to practice it was to be subject to capital punishiment. There are large portions of the world where you can still get into serious trouble for the practice today.
I consider it to be a sin for example, and since all such sins acrue to the accounts of the Lord Jesus Christ on the Cross 2000 or so years ago I avoid it. But as sins go, there are much worse sins. Take gossip, or judging another for their transgressions, now these things are not to be tolerated at all. Sexual orientation as a system of weakness from the genetically programed sin nature is hardly the worst temptation a person could be subject to. Heterosexual adultery was a capital offence too you know, and pound for pound a far more difficult problem for society.
In any case it is polite to recognize that, generally speaking, humanity is pretty skittish and crazy around the subject of sex period; and thus strong social taboos arise in various cultures in defining the protocals in which all manner of carnal activity is deemed good or bad. Oh and anther thing, for God's sake don't let anyone tempt you into a guilt trip for any of this stuff, straight, bi, or whatever... self righteous judgement of another's sin will send you to God's woodshed faster than just about anything, and guilt is the sin that keeps on giving and is thus considered right up at the top of things not to do.
Consenting adults behind closed doors and all that is the principal behind warning people up front on subjects such as these, I just wish we had the same sort of social rules for Gabby Gums behavior as well, but Moral Degenerarse-y is a big ol blind spot in todays world.
Hope this helps.
Pony Script: I just now groked the cutie marks on the arguing couple who got zaped by Princes Cadence's love spell. The Stallion has three 4 leaf clovers and has thus gotten lucky, the mare has a nut and bolt and has thus been.... Carnal relations without love are empty and meaningless and so the wicked princess intervened with her "love" spell... Lauren Faust is an evil genius.

You can replace the ballistic weapon with another one. You could even replace the arm or head mounted ones with other energy weapons. But each variant has it's own mix of hardpoints, and the Founder's is the original. For example, you should be able to strip the AC out and mount PPC's in the arms, or a pulse laser instead of a regular one in the head.
GET OUT OF MY HEAD... : P
yeah, i was think of doing something just like that, maybe throw a triplet of MG's in the shoulder mount just so i have something to click while i wait for my heat to lower...
i have a feeling i'll be leaning heavly on energy weapons in this game like in all other MW games because they are more fogiving to poor aim.
I sopose i can live with out a shoulder mounted PPC on my founder mech...(if you can call that living...)

Here's a little something for you to consider. I am just astounded by the amount of pony art online. Have a gander at a most unlikely crossover, the Spetsneighs.
Pony Script: The Russians dealt with Chernobyl with the Ruthless sacrifice of lives and a concrete blanket that bought them years to come up with a better solution.
This article shows that the much dreaded colapse of the fourth reactor at FUKushima is a certainty, which will likely compel the evacuation of Tokyo.
The Plutonium and Cesium already bioacumlating in algae and Tuna threaten to place the entire pacific seafood harvesting industry in doubt for decades to come. That kind of hit to the carrying capacity of the planet is disastrous coming on the heels as it does with the drought and crop failures portended world wide this year.
A prayer or two on the subject would not be amiss.

Personally, I would put Applejack out to pasture and bring in Applebloom as a foster sister of the re-mane-ing 5. Kind of like Sisterhooves Social with AJ and Sweetie Belle. Basically, I do not see a large story pool for AJ that cannot be easily transferred to the others. Business problems can affect Rarity and indirectly get Pinkie Pie via the Cakes. Sweetie Belle and Rarity already have some sister-sister dynamics that could be explored. Bringing in Applebloom keeps Granny and Big Mac in cicrculation and can bring more focus to the CMC for further development.
I would actually keep Rainbow for the simple reason that she is the counterbalance to Fluttershy. Also, if we off RD, what reason would we ever have to go to Cloudsdale? Fluttershy won't go there without a REALLY good reason, so you effectively eliminate 1/3 of Equestria from the show by getting rid of RD. Also, how many of Fluttershy's appearances are directly related to or caused by RD stories? Without RD, do you lose reasons to see Fluttershy?

Anyway, I started to read PH a while ago, but dropped it after a few chapters. It wasn't bad, honestly, but it just didn't grab my attention like the original did. Since then I've spoiled myself on much of the plot via TV Tropes, and judging by that, my reaction would have been mixed had I kept reading, though the fic does seem to have its moments - I cracked up when I read about Blackjack's real name or about her reputation as "Queen Whiskey", for example.
The first 10 or so chapters felt like a chore slogging through them tbh, but after that, the author really seems to have found his writing legs and it takes off really well. I say do yourself a favor and read it anyways, even if you spoiled plot points. The writing itself is very fun (after the aforementioned chapters, that is). Especially the parts where she earns her "Queen Whiskey" reputation

its so gooey, but not at all romantic.

All that debating eats up so much time! lol
Anyway, I made a blank version because I haven't decided what colors I should use.
Thinking about a greyish brown for the body and a mainly black mane with grey highlights/outlines, for the eyes, I wanna try to match them closely to my own ones, so blue-green-grey with a yellow shimmer close to the pupil, sounds kinda strange but that's what they happen to look like.
I also have the cutiemark ready, but unlike the body it's already vectorized, so I'm going to put it on his flank once the body is vectorized as well...
I'm gonna let you have a look though.
As always, feedback is appreciated!
On a side note, I still haven't come up with a name yet, I'm bad at picking names...
