upper right corner where you can find all the bug fixes from
October starting today! Read it! This week the horse market is
up and running in Fort Pinta As an update bonus today we have
a developer in the studio! Welcome Lisa! You guys may know her from Star Stable Live where she was a crucial part! but for you guys who may not know Lisa tell us, who are you? My name is Lisa,
I work as a 3D artist here at Star Stable! I do mainly the 3D models
and textures of the horses. Oh, you got like the best job! It’s my dream job! YASSS we’re gonna start off with asking you three short questions and then we’re gonna proceed
into asking you four longer, a little bit more in depth questions! And if you guys have any questions
for Lisa that we didn’t bring up put them in the comment
section below and we might include them in the future! Let’s get to questioning! First question is: How long did it take to develop the starter horse? It actually took several months! we had to go through a lot of discussions and decision-making, before we even knew that we were actually going to update the
starter horse. Making a normal horse for Star Stable like a new breed, takes
roughly two to three months. So, you are not the only one who’s working on the
horses, right? and in this project how many,
approximately, were working on the starter horse? Here at the company, at SSOHQ, we are roughly about 120 people and during the starter horse production there were roughly 25 people involved! They came from different
disciplines, so it’s not only art or animation or design, there are other
disciplines as well! Roughly 25 people on the starter horse how many people, for reference,
is working on a regular horse? For the fjord for example, roughly 10
people. So the most important question is: Which one of the variations is your
favorite Lisa? It’s this one! It’s because it’s grey and it has the pink snip! That was my first horse when I started playing Star Stable. I’m looking forward to get
him updated! Why did we decide to update the starter horse? From a developer’s point of
view, we wanted to update the starter horse so that it looks coherent in the
style from for example the Silverglade revamp we want the horses to look like the
breeds that you buy in the game. and from a players point of view we want them to feel proud
riding around on their starter horses and we wanted to give you this free update! What was the most fun part of making the starter horse? I think it was to work together
with so many different disciplines so not only artists working with animators
and designers but actually us all working together with web, for example! And all the reactions from the players on the teasers, knowing that the players
will start riding their starter horses! That feels amazing, like the entire team
is super super hyped! It was received very well by you guys we thank you for that! What was most difficult about
making the new starter horse? From an artist point of view, it
was to try to stay true to the old colors! Because we don’t want you guys to
log in one morning and then see a completely other horse, like a dark bay
turning into chestnut! It’s very important that you recognize your old
starter horse even in the new style and the new texturations (colors). Many people, including myself, are super excited about the new braided mane style How come that you chose to put this in the starter horse update? We wanted to include it on
the starter horse, because we want all the players to experience it! They don’t have to buy the
latest horse in order to get this mane style. But is it true that it started
as a passion project? Yep, exactly! It started as a passion project on a passion Friday and we wanted to figure
out how to introduce it to the players! The starter horse was a good choice! I’m so excited! I am super excited to ride my new starter! Thank you Lisa so much for coming! Thank you for having me guys,
it has been awesome to be here again! Thank you so much for watching! If you guys would like us
