Description
***Pony race is NOT available in the character creation menu, it is accessed by polymorph spells located in a chest the Bannered Mare in Whiterun, across from the main entrance and up the ladder.

This mod is over 100MB in size and cannot fit into the 100mb Steam limit. The rest of it, sound files for the newer companions, can be found below, either on Steam or Nexus.

CASTING SPELLS (except lesser powers) WHILE TRANSFORMED WILL NOT WORK AND WILL CRASH THE GAME.

This mod was originally an upgraded version of the existing pony horse mod by zdzichorowerzysta and demon pony Shadowmere mod by whalecakes, fixing the crash to desktop issue, adding unique pony mounts, conjuration spells to summon them, perks to enable multiple summons at once. Now includes voice packs for all of them and flying pony (dragon) summons, and allows you to be a pony by means of polymorph spells (located in the Bannered Mare in Whiterun, across and up the stairs from the main entrance) without losing all of the functionality that you do as a vampire or werewolf. Also adds two difficult high level encounters with their own spell drops

OLD UPDATES:

8/14/14: Changed squeeing to occur less. Removed bouncy footsteps. Add-on to replace them if anyone wants them back is on nexus.

7/26/14: Added Vinyl Scratch summon and polymorph with bass cannon ability. Inflicts soul drain and does a lot of damage over time. Must be aimed or it will not work.
Removed most old "summon" spells and converted several spells to lesser ability (shout, usable while transformed) to reduce clutter.
Also added general summon companion spell.

Update 6/20/14: Balanced companions, summons, and mounts again. They now cast less often, do less melee damage at low level, but their damage scales up every 10 levels up to 100. Summons will scale up at half your level and get a damage increase every 20 player levels. Rarity now uses ice spike instead of Ice Storm. Fluttershy now has a 7.5% chance to use force push on hit instead of spitting poison. Applejack still has more hp and hits about 1.5x harder in melee than the others..

There are still limitations while transformed; cannot cast normal spells, sneak, use bows (at least, you can't fire them), and some other things, but you can do far more than as a werewolf or vampire..

Mane 6 companions all can be found across the bridge north of Riverwood. They are not as strong as the rideable versions but stronger than the summons. They can wear armor, and giving them unarmed damage enchanted gear will increase their melee damage. Applejack does not have spell procs but hits harder and has more hp than the rest. Most horse audio has been disabled or replaced to prevent Pinkie from making excess Sega noises.

Rideable flying dragon pony mod is now up, details and download are on Nexus as Steam doesn't allow add-on files and it requires Dragonborn DLC.

Casting normal spells while transformed does not currently work. Downloading SkyTweak and its hotkey casting optional mod linked below will work, though it will require SkyUI and SKSE, as well as manually rebinding each spell to the key you want.

*REQUIRES MOST RECENT VERSION OF SKYRIM, does not require Dawnguard or Dragonborn.


There are two high level boss encounters. Pinkamena is at Hanvar's Rest (north of Dustman's Cairn). Nightmare Moon is far south of Windhelm.

Current bugs include:
***REGULAR MAGIC DOES NOT WORK WHILE TRANSFORMED AND CAUSES CRASH

Bows, sneak, power attacks and normal shouts don't work while transformed; bow can be used as a melee weapon to gain archery skill
Skill gains work for weapons but not armor work while transformed; regular attacks give destruction skill as well
Occasional clipping through terrain
Must be in 3rd person to use regular attacks
Cannot ride horses while transformed, doing so may crash
Event animations where the main character does custom animations, such as the execution in the beginning, will cause crash while transformed
______

Lunar/Solar units as seen in the linked movie have been added for a more hardcore pony experience. Unlike regular ponies, they bleed and die as opposed to just being knocked unconscious. Solar ponies are on Imperial faction and Lunar are on Stormcloak faction, so they will attack each other, as well as the rest of those factions, on sight. They are currently only summonable by console, though, so you won't encounter them or be traumatized by unexpected dead ponies unless you go out of your way to summon them. Their console IDs are "lunar <name>" or "solar <name>", and Princess Luna/Princess Celestia (the ones without the princess title are the regular or summoned versions.)
____
There are several unique persistent ponies with special abilities in the game, which have been flagged essential and cannot die (they can still be knocked out temporarily like followers, though). They are 50% the size of the original models. Summoned versions are 25% size. They can be found at the stables throughout Skyrim and along the path up Mt. Hrothgar.

All of their spells are cast-on-hit and will go off only on a melee attack, as I have not yet learned how to make nonhumans cast normally.

INSTALLATION:
Just subscribe to the mod in Steam. If downloading from Nexus, use Nexus Mod Manager or unzip into Skyrim directory.


Prior to editing/making this mod, I had no experiencing modding at all and very little with messing with textures and meshes, so if there's some bug or issue with it or something I may have missed, let me know and I'll see if I can fix it.

Enjoy

One more thing, what happens if one of the pony companion dies? Can I get them back?
Sekai  [author] Aug 27 @ 4:48pm 
Polymorph spells (located in the Bannered Mare in Whiterun, across and up the stairs from the main entrance), as in mod description

How do I play as the pony race, I have the mod installed and enabled but starting the game doesnt give me a pony option as a race at the character selecter.
Sekai  [author] Aug 21 @ 11:36am 
That's a boss encounter, triggered by talking to it, shouldn't be rideable. All the mounts are at stables or up Mt. Hrothgar.
Futa Derpy Aug 21 @ 8:32am 
Im still amazed at the number of rideable Characters that can be found, I was wandering through a forest and found Shadow of Nightmare moon when i thought they were only on city stables and the high mountain

Anybody got a full list of locations and characters? even if not, its exciting to see what you can find!

Huh...I'm...honestly not sure how to feel about this mod. Don't get me wrong, I'm a brony, and I have no inherent problem with mixing MLP with other 'verses (Heck, I'm working on an MLP/Skyrim fanfiction as I type this), but...actually adding ponies to the game? Kinda weird for some reason.
