Amaretto Barnyard Bird Incubator

No Gravatar

Happy Friday Everyone ! Hope everyone is having a good breeding day !!

This week I wanted to tell you all about the Amaretto Barnyard Bird Incubator.

When your Birds drop their own nests those will be non-starter
Barnyard Bird nests.

An incubator is used for hatching your Barnyard Bird Nests.

The nest will take 60 minutes to birth after being sent to the incubator.

The incubator can birth up to 12 Barnyard Birds at one time.

Be sure to set out food if you are going offline while your nest are in the incubator.

To use the Incubator

Rez the incubator

Rez your Barnyard Bird Nest within 10m of your incubator

Left click your Barnyard Bird Nest and click incubate

Click yes to send to incubator

Your Barnyard will take 60 minutes to be hatched.

While the eggs are in the incubator you can click the incubator an get a list of the birds uuids that are in the incubator.
You may want to copy an paste that list of uuids on a notecard in case something happens during birthing.

If you have a Barnyard Bird that cannot rez due to lack of prims please give the incubator time as it will re-rez the Barnyard Bird when the prims are available.

Be sure to go pick up your Come Back Pack read about it here

Also don’t forget the Mystery Sale Item today is the end of the month stock up on that reduced food today !!

Spotlight on Protecting Yourself

No Gravatar

Happy Thursday!  I  hope everyone is having a great week!  We had a great Community Meeting yesterday at which Josaphine announced that the Horse Update version 5.5 is going to be released on Friday October 7th!  I hope you are all as excited as we are for this upcoming update!  It also made me think that this would be the perfect time to remind everyone how to protect yourself in Secondlife while breeding and selling your breedables.

A few things you can do to protect yourself and your breedables.

  • Don’t buy/sell breedables to avatars that are only one day old.
  • Always set prices of your breedables in your inventory or in a private area
  • When putting items out for auction be sure they are not set for sale before they are sold
  • Don’t buy breedables from random people iming you.
  • Always check the creator of the horse, K-9 or Barnyard Bird. It should always without exception be JJ Cerna for horses, Ancient Biscuit for K-9s and Mazelina Menna for Barnyard Birds.
  • NEVER I mean never buy a duplicated breedable or a breedables that you haven’t seen rezzed in Secondlife.

 

Amaretto cannot be there to help you at every breedable sale nor can we refund you if you buy a copybotted breedable or a duplicated breedable. You have to protect yourself against these people in Secondlife, if you do fall victim to one of these scams the best thing to do is file a abuse report them to Linden Lab.

There have been some issues with a griefer pretending to give out free stuff that if you wear it or give it debit permissions it will drain your Linden balance. I just wanted to give out a few tips about protecting yourself from these kinds of griefers and thieves.

1.) Always pay attention to who is giving you things. If you don’t know them don’t wear it… only rez it. If it asks you to give it debit permissions DECLINE IT!!!! Then delete it and purge it from your inventory.

2.) When dealing with Amaretto products they are no modify, no copy, no transfer. They can only be purchased from an Amaretto store and Marketplace or be given by one of the three Amaretto Business Avatars JJ Cerna, Ancient Biscuit, and Mazelina Menna. Any other avatar trying to give out Amaretto Products (other than animals of course) is a griefer or copybotter. Real Amaretto products will never ask for debt permissions!!!!

Also be sure to check out this blog by Josaphine on protecting yourself:

http://amarettobreedables.com/blogs/5/131/copybotters-again

Please be responsible and protect yourself.  But you guys have to be proactive and protect yourself against such scams and report all scammers to Linden Lab with an abuse report. Last but not least always remember that if something sounds too good to be true it probably is!

Until next week …..Smile!!! You are a member of the GREATEST Community in SL!! Be proud, Be happy, Be inspired …. Be Amaretto!!!

Amaretto K-9 Hud

No Gravatar

Happy Friday Everyone !! Hope everyone is having a good breeding day !

This week I decide to blog on the K-9 hud an how it works.

To get a K-9 HUD you can click on any of your Amaretto K-9s and that will bring up the main menu. On the menu you will see Help.

When you click help that you will get another menu that has a button on it labeled hud.

By clicking the hud button you will receive a K-9 hud sent directly to the objects folder in your inventory.

Go to objects folder and find the hud, right click it and go to wear. It will attach to the upper left hand side of your screen. You can adjust this if you wish.

What each button on the hud means :

Black bar along the top:
Name of K-9 connected to hud

Small Black “Hide” button; when clicked will hide your K-9 hud to the left of the screen

Large half circle: States what mode your K-9 is in Fetch.

Connect button: Looks like a plug with both ends together. This is to connect your K-9 to the hud.

Disconnect button: Looks like a plug with the ends not together. This is to disconnect your K-9 from the hud.

Green ball: This button, when clicked, will bring up a menu to get a ball, stick, newspaper or leash to play fetch and/or walk with your K-9

Fetch : This button is to play fetch with your K-9

Stay : This button is to make your K-9 stay put

Come : This button will call your K-9 to come to you

Follow : This button will make your K-9 follow you

GPS : This button can be used to set your K-9s settings
Animations (avatar petting a K-9):

This button, when clicked, will bring up a menu which has petting options as well as the walk animation.

To connect your K-9 to the hud, click the K-9 and then click the hud button on the menu then click the connect button on your HUD.

Make sure your K-9s movement is set to physical before connecting to the hud.

To disconnect your K-9 from the hud click the disconnect button
To play fetch, get a fetch item from the green ball button as described above (ball, stick or newspaper) and wear it from your inventory objects folder.

Click the fetch button on the hud and go into mouse look (bottom of your screen) and left click to throw the item.

Your K-9 will run to fetch and bring it back to you. To change the range on how far you throw the item, click the item in your hand and set the range from the menu given.

To make your K-9 stay put simply click the stay button and they will stay where they are and not follow you.

To make your K-9 come to you click the come button and they will come.

To make your K-9 follow you click the follow button and they will follow where you go.

The animations button will bring up a menu to pet your K-9 or to walk them.

To pet your K-9 choose one of the different “size” animations.

To walk your K-9, wear the leash (from the green ball button) and the K-9 will connect to the leash and you can walk them around on your sim.

So try using you K-9 hud an have some fun with your K-9.

Until next week Happy Breeding !!!

Spotlight on Leather

Happy Thursday!  It’s been a great morning in the Amaretto groups!  It’s been exciting to watch the surprises from the 2016 Fall Editions showing up.  If you have not got your Fall Editions yet (or just don’t have enough of them!) they are on sale until tomorrow.  I think once you see the pictures below of the awesome surprises they are hiding you just might have to run to the Amaretto store and grab them while you still can!

These beautiful Leather bridle and Leather saddle will surely inspire many new projects for the horse breeders!  I’ve already seen a few talking about what coats these would look good on and now I am excited to see what everyone does with them.  For me that is the best part of watching the new traits come out is seeing what you amazing breeders do with them!

Amaretto Breedable Horse & Racing

No Gravatar

Happy Friday Everyone !! Hope everyone is having a good breeding day !

This week i want to tell you all about racing Amaretto Horses.
First off lets talk about the racing hud !

The Hud

The hud can only connect to one horse at a time.

Your Avatar can wear only one hud at a time.

Connecting Your Horse

Attach HUD

Attach Horse

Connect Horse to HUD by pressing Connect Button in the Main Menu of the HUD

Disconnecting Your Horse

Press Disconnect button in the Main Menu of the HUD

How to Train

Enter Training Mode by clicking Training in the Racing Menu

Select Speed or Stamina from the drop menu

Move using the arrow keys or w a s d keys

You are now Training your horse ( XP gain only occurs while you are moving with the horse)

Click Training in the Racing Menu again to Exit Training ( Training will also end automatically when the horse has reached its daily limit based on its stamina class)

You can only train your horse ONCE daily for the amount of time allotted by the Horses Class and only in one category (speed or stamina)per day.
Ex. I trained my Class D horse for 30 minutes on speed today so I will have to wait for 24 hours before I can train it again for stamina.

Speed means the sprinting speed of a horse.

Speed is ranked using the following Class system:
S = 3x Avie Run Speed (ARS) {Highest Possible Class} 50 minutes of training time
A = 2.5x ARS 45 minutes of training time
B = 2x ARS 40 minutes of training time
C = 1.5x ARS 35 minutes of training time
D = ARS {Lowest Possible Class}30 minutes of training time
STAMINA
Stamina = The amount of time a horse can sprint without recharging . Stamina is ranked using the following Class system:
S = 50s of sprinting and 50 minutes of training time
A = 45s of sprinting and 45 minutes of training time
B = 40s of sprinting and 40 minutes of training time
C = 35s of sprinting and 35 minutes of training time
D = 30s of sprinting and 30 minutes of training time
Class D is where horses start
Classes S,A,B,C, and D are trainable and passable
XP

XP is gained through training your horse in a given field (speed or stamina) to move from one class to the next you must train from 0% to 100% in the current Class of that field.
XP Gains as follows:
Class D gains XP @ .5% per minute of training
Class C gains XP @ .4% per minute of training
Class B Gains XP @ .3% per minute of training
Class A Gains XP @ .1% per minute of training
Class D is where horses start
Classes S,A,B,C, and D are trainable and passable.

**It is important to note that once a horse with racing traits is retired (pass the age of 120 days) not only will it be unable to breed, but you will also not be able to train or race a retired horse. **

Until next week Happy Breeding Everyone !
