OK, so is not Halo: CE or Episode I Racer (Still waiting for that remake, Lucasarts), but still. It's got to be the finest jewel to ever come from Ensemble, and one of the best RTS I've ever played.

About me? Well, I do a lot of things. I just happen to have a lot of free time, and not enough motivation to do something useful.

Aww, she's deleting all of her stuff related to me. She even blocked me. Some people really are sore losers, aren't they?

*Sigh* Dealing with this stuff wasn't on my job description...

OK...alright. Thanks for the heads up, I guess. Although I knew about this before checking this comment.

I have some new work for you to look at before I attempt to submit it to the group for acceptance, T-553412.

I worked with a different map from gm_construct, and used a few other options available when I press the "Q" key to improve my screenshots to a better appearance, like blurring the background before taking the screenshot.

However, I am still using the Steam screenshot button, so they are all in .JPG format. I can try next week to use the console window to help convert them to .PNG format before sending them to the group for review, but I wanted your okay on them first.

Appreciate it.

OK, you're getting there, alright. Anti-aliasing is fine, depth of field is fine, bloom is fine. However, these are still shots of ponies standing still. Is time to practice your posing.

First things first, get the Ragdoll Mover tool from the Workshop. It can be a bit tricky to use at first, but it beats posing ragdolls with the Phsygun by a long shot. Getting good poses in Garry's Mod can be tricky, as well, specially if you want to get realistic shots. Don't be afraid to use other pictures as references, even pictures than aren't from Garry's Mod. Practice is key.

One last bit of advice, spawn the ponies, use the Stand Pose tool on them, and then use the Ragdoll Mover to pose them. If you need further references, check out our gallery.

Thanks for the tips and encouragement, T-553412!

I am glad to see I am making better progress now that I am being more flexible with other maps and other tools.

I'll subscribe to the Ragdoll Mover while I am waiting for Team Fortress 2 to install tomorrow, and put it to good use on my next projects when I work on Garry's Mod again sometime in the next few days.

Once I have the hang of it, I'll see what my next few screenshots have to say from you as I feel more comfortable asking the head admin for advice before going to submit to the entire group.

After that, I can look into the conversion from .JPG to .PNG, but for now, I just want to make sure I have the hang of all the posing first. I need to take this one step at a time. Like you said: Practice, practice, practice.

I don't see many .jpg artifacts in your pictures, so don't worry about saving your pics as .png. For now, at least.
