New This Week (March 23-29)

Releasing new this week are the American Saddlebred in English tack as well as the Pony of the Americas in both English and Western tack styles.

We are working on three gorgeous new releases for Fantasy Faire, plus finalizing our interstitial development for the Idle Rogue Dance troupe’s Night Circus.

We’ve also put the new Friesian animesh rideable in the works. This is a gorgeous horse and we’re very excited about how it is looking.

And some other things, too, of course 😉

Marching On!

Elite Equestrian's Cinderella Carriage Roselline February 2020

It’s been such a busy Winter for us, and we’ve been focused on creating!

So far this Winter we have released the Shetland Pony in a variety of formats, including the adorable Cinderella Carriage.We have also developed and released our new American Saddlebred with 3-gaits (Slow gait, park trot, park canter) with the classic 1870s Goddard Buggy exclusively at the Great Exhibition in New Babbage.  We also developed a new set of armor, the 1560 Italian Milanese Armor for the Cleveland Bay, available exclusively at We Love Roleplay (25% discount while at this event!).

What’s upcoming? We have a lot of new releases for the Spring. Of course Fantasy Faire is always a big event, and we have 3 gorgeous new releases just for that (shhhh, they’re a secret!)  Sooner than that though, we will be releasing the Shetland Pony with the Swan Sleigh, the POA, riding pony, and the Sidesaddle Shetland and a ton of new appaloosa coats in the coming month.

We’re working on the American Saddlebred riding horse in English and western; the Friesian; the Dartmore and some other odds and ends, including a couple of new Gachas. And of course, we continue to work on other wonderful projects in the background.

New, Animesh RealHorse Rideable Shetland Ponies

E-AnimeshRealHorseRideable-ShetlandPonyBaroque-ML

The new animesh RealHorse Rideable Shetland Ponies are available in 5 different styles and in 2 different rider sizes.  The Ponies are configured as English/Dressage, Baroque/Dressage, Western, Rosamunda Fantasy, and Ponicorn all for both XS/S and M/L riders.

The XS/S versions are animated for small mesh avatars including Toddleedoo Baby and Kid, Bebe and Chonk. The M/L versions are animated for all standard avatars including tween, teen and short adults.  The rider animations themselves are different; the XS/S versions do not break the small mesh avatars, the M/L will.  Try before you buy to make sure you have the correct version.

RealHorse Rideable Update

Updates on our products are rare but sometimes things change. Then we do such a fast evolution of one of our projects that an update is mandatory!

This is the case with the update of our new RealHorse Rider to the new RealHorse Rideable Animesh Horse.

Here’s what is updated in the new version:

~ Complete overhaul of the AO and HUD scripting to improve speed and function.
~ Reduced the number of scripts and the amount of memory usage to 1150 Kb.
~ Added sounds to the Gesture HUD.
~ Added multiple stands to the AO for the horse.
~ Completely reanimated the horse animations in both AO and Gesture HUD.
~ Created a smoother jump sequence.
~ Added an adjustment system to the Gesture Hud to allow riders to quickly and easily position their horses.
~ Positioning adjustments persist between uses (The RealHorse “remembers” the adjustment you set.)
~ Changed the gait sounds.
~ Changed the rider animations priority to allow all of the full-sized horses to be used with combat systems.
~ Overhauled the Gesture HUD to make it simpler to use and reduce the amount of screen space used.

What this means:
A horse with lower script memory usage that is simpler and easier to use, and that more effectively competes in most equestrian sports, while still delivering the full equestrian experience.

Other Useful Things to Know!

Complexity::
30,700 – 38,400 Complexity (Rank 1)

Average Script Usage:
1150 kb memory
