Hi everyone and Happy Saturday!  I hope you are enjoying your weekend and this weather roller coaster we all seem to be on!!

Have you heard your fellow breeders talking about the Blanco K-9s – have you wondered how you can breed for one – well let’s read all about it!

Blanco’s are K-9s that come from breeding two K-9s of the same color coats together (for example: two Red Dobermans could produce a Blanco Doberman).

The coats on the Blanco K-9s do NOT have the ability to be passed on however, the Blanco Collars DO have the ability to be passed on.

 

 

So now pick out your favorite one or two even and start breeding for yours today!!

Until next time this is Snookie saying Happy Breeding!

Navigating the Ponie Menu!

No Gravatar

Hello Amaretto Community and Happy Friday! We made it through the week! Time for the weekend! Today I wanted to do a little refresher on the Ponie Pals menu. The Ponie Pals are so adorable and once you understand the main menu better it will make breeding more fun and enjoyable! Let’s get started!

Last Bred: Says, in local, the last ponie that it was bred to, or says “This Ponie has never been kissed!” if they have never been bred

Last Basket: Says, in local, the name of the last basket and UUID or “This Ponie has never been kissed!” if they have never had a basket

Wear

  • Walk (Will ask to attach the ponie, select yes and this ponie will walk beside you)
  • Hold (Will ask to attach the ponie, select yes and this ponie will attach to your right arm to be held)

While wearing the ponie, you can edit and adjust it to where you like. When finished adjusting, click the ponie select save from the menu and it will save the position for next time.

To remove the ponie, just detach it in inventory. If you want to change the animation between walk and hold, rez the ponie back out and use the wear menu again.

**When attaching the ponie to your avatar, it can possibly remove your avatar mesh body. Just add your mesh body back after attaching the ponie.**

Consumables: this menu lists the consumables you can use on your ponie

  • Cake! (multi stat booster)
  • Soup (used to heal the ponie when sick)
  • Energize Me (stat booster used for zing)
  • M Sundae, Moxie Sundae (stat booster used for moxie)

Rename: To rename your ponie “Amaretto Ponie Pal: Please say the name you would like me to have in local!”

Label: To set a label for your ponie which is displayed under the name

  • Set Label: “Please say the label you would like me to have in local!”
  • Clear Label: “Clearing custom label!”

Website: Says, in local, the link to the Social Network

Support: Says, in local, the links to the ponie wiki and the support sites

Settings: Multiple setting menus

  • Go home: sends ponie home
  • List: Lists settings of your ponie
  • Breed: who will your ponie breed with (Owner, Group or All)
  • Set Home: Resets your ponies home position
  • Sound: To turn off and on sounds
  • Movement: To set your ponies movement to Physical, Phantom or Off
  • Text: Turns text on and off
  • Range: To set/change the range of your ponie
  • Animations: To turn off and on animations
  • Particles: To turn off and on particles

Stats: Shows the stats of the ponie

Parents: Says, in local, the names and UUIDS of the ponies parents or if the ponie is a stater will say “This Ponie is a starter ponie”

Main Menu: Takes to back to the main start menu

Close: Closes out the menu

 

I hope this helps everyone gain a little more understanding of the Ponie Pals main menu!

Happy breeding everyone!

Until next time…..

Beak-A-Boo!

No Gravatar

Hello Amaretto Community and Happy Monday! Today I wanted to show you all the beak traits in the barnyard birds. These are some beautifully awesome traits you can put on your birds to make them your own:

The Beak Color trait comes from breeding “Starter Breeds” together or 1 starter with any other bird. Please note that this trait CAN be passed on. – http://wiki3.amarettobreedables.com/index.php?title=Beak_Color

 

The Beak Flaw trait comes from breeding “Starter Breeds” together or 1 starter with any other bird. Please note that this trait CAN be passed on. – http://wiki3.amarettobreedables.com/index.php?title=Beak_Flaw

 

The Beak Design trait comes from breeding “Starter Breeds” together or 1 starter with any other bird. Please note that this trait CAN be passed on. – http://wiki3.amarettobreedables.com/index.php?title=Beak_Design

So as you can see there are many beak traits and they all have a unique look. What’s even better though is you can put all 3 of them together and mix them up and try and to make a 3 beak traited bird!

Happy breeding!

Until next time…

Just look at those faces!

Hello everyone I hope you are enjoying your weekend and having a stupendous Saturday!!

In today’s customer connection let’s take a look at our Ponie Pals and that oh so cute face marking trait.

  • Celestial
  • Phoenix
  • Tenderness
  • Freckles
  • Icicle
  • Winter Snowflake

The Face Markings trait comes from breeding “Starter Style” together or one starter with any other Ponie.  The most recent Face Markings Icicle & Winter Snowflake comes from breeding the 2017 Deluxe Edition – Mr. Amaretto Christmas & Mrs. Amaretto Christmas together!

Please note that these Face Markings CAN be passed on.

 

 

So go ahead and add one of these to your favorite ponie or create a new designer ponie – so many possibilities – and I can’t wait to see what you all come up with!!

Until next time this is Snookie saying having a great weekend and Happy Breeding!!

2018 Mardi Gras Krewe of Amaretto

No Gravatar

Hey guys its getting a little festive around the ranch who is ready for FAT TUESDAY?

The origins of Mardi Gras can be traced to medieval Europe, passing through Rome and Venice in the 17th and 18th centuries to the French House of the Bourbons. From here, the traditional revelry of “Boeuf Gras,” or fatted calf, followed France to her colonies.

New Orleans was established in 1718 by Bienville. By the 1730s, Mardi Gras was celebrated openly in New Orleans, but not with the parades we know today. In the early 1740s, Louisiana’s governor, the Marquis de Vaudreuil, established elegant society balls, which became the model for the New Orleans Mardi Gras balls of today.

Like Comus and the Twelfth Night Revelers, most Mardi Gras krewes today developed from private social clubs with restrictive membership policies. Since all of these parade organizations are completely funded by their members, New Orleanians call it the “Greatest Free Show on Earth!”

When does Mardi Gras start and end?
The Carnival season actually begins on Jan. 6, which is King’s Day (Feast of the Epiphany).
Fat Tuesday is never on the same day each year because Easter Sunday is never on the same Sunday each year. Fat Tuesday is always the day before Ash Wednesday.

Amaretto wanted to shake things up this year and what better way than joining the Mardi Gra excitement and fun! So we wanted to introduce to you the 2018 Mardi Gras Krewe of Amaretto!

 

2018 Mardi Gras Krewe of Amaretto – King & 2018 Mardi Gras Krewe of Amaretto – Queen

A Horse With No Name?

No Gravatar

Happy Hump Day Fellow Breeders!

“A Horse With No Name” may have made a good ’70’s song title but it’s not good for your Amaretto Breedable Horses (or Bundles, K9s, Kennels, Barnyard Birds, Nests, Ponie Pals and Baskets)!

As we all know, Second Life can have issues and these issues can cause duplication of breedables, disappearance of breedables, or incomplete transfer of breedables. When this happens, we need information to replace/remake your breedable, such as the name and/or UUID number. If you leave your breedable with the Amaretto default name, it can make it harder, many times impossible, to find. So please take the time to name all your breedables.

When you get a bundle, kennel, nest, or basket, and you decide not to birth it, name it before you take it into your inventory. Names can be as simple as using a number.

Naming also has a second purpose and that’s to help you track your breedables for various things like easy organizing of your inventory or prepping for an auction. So remember even giving it a simple name can help us help you and help you keep track. Be creative and start naming your breedables today!

Till next time…HAPPY NAMING & HAPPY BREEDING!
