Updating Your Breedables!

Happy Monday everyone!  Today I wanted to take the opportunity to talk to you all about updating and keeping your animals up to date!! Did you know that Amaretto only supports current version animals! This means if for any reason your breedable goes through support it will come back the most current version! Animals will only eat and breed correctly when the are current version. Let me list the current versions for you below :

Amaretto Horses: Version 5.5

Amaretto K-9: Version 2.2

Amaretto Barnyard Birds: Version 3.0

Amaretto Ponie Pals: Version 1.20

Amaretto Barnyard Ducks: Version 1.2

Amaretto releases an update for one of the breedables in order to add new things or to fix small issues.  Updating is easy and can be quite fun and exciting so let me tell you a few things about updating your breedables. You must update your breedables to take advantage of all fixes in an update. Now let’s take a look at how to update a breedable…

How to update your breedable?
It’s simple:
You will have to pick up your FREE updater at any of the Amaretto locations once an update has been released. Even when it isnt uda

Single Updater:
Place the updater near the animal that isn’t updated and from the animals menu select the update button. The animal will be updated and the settings will be the same as before the update process.

Bulk Updater:

Place the bulk updater in the middle of your breeding area, click the updater and adjust the settings you want your animal to be set to after the update process, then select the update button on the updater menu. Do not remove the updater until it has completed updating all animals and the hover text above the updater reads FINISHED.

***DO NOT PICK UP ANIMALS OR THE UPDATER UNTIL IT HAS COMPLETED THE UPDATE PROCESS***
Somethings you need to know about the updater:

1. It will not work if there is more than one updater out. It gives you a message that there are 2 updaters out please remove one. If you continue to try and update your horse It will give you another error message and have you pick one updater up and reset the other. (touch and wait 5 seconds to reset)

2. It will not update pregnant animals. The reason being the updater can potentially abort the pregnancy. Waiting to update your pregnant animals will not effect their functions, they will continue to eat, move, animate etc. When they give birth then you can update them. The bundle, kennel, or nest will be the old version and need to be updated when birthed.

3. The updater will not work on sims with a high load. Dilation needs to be above .65 and region fps must be above 25 for the updater to work. You will get an error message that says the sim dilation is too low, we have enclosed a sim monitor that will display these values for you. Just rez on your sim next to the updater.

4. Sick breedables can also be updated using the updater.

5. You can only update animals that you own.

You can also check out the how-to-videos on the website for easy instructions on updating:

http://amarettobreedables.com/videos/7/6/how-to-use-the-bulk-updater

http://amarettobreedables.com/videos/7/5/how-to-use-the-single-updater

Now you guys should be all ready to update your breedables when it’s time for an update ….. it’s not time yet! But an update is in t he works as we speak!!

Happy breeding!

Until next time….

 

 

 

We are deploying a fix to the issue that happened with the nests. This is going to be a duck only update as the Chickens were not affected by this problem. Ducks will be version 1.1 with this fix and it is important that you update your ducks to 1.1 as 1.0 can not have nests and will be blocked from breeding with this update. Now you may be wondering what happens to your cycles and vigor well don’t worry your Ducks will still have all their cycles and any duck that’s 7 days or older will have its vigor restored with this update :). Now what happened was during the assembly of the Duck release I overlooked a component script on accident that had the side effect of breaking the breeding protocol, this was not Intentional and I personally apologize for the inconvenience this has caused to each and every one of you. Here are the notes for the 1.1 duck release:

*Birds are not affected so 3.0 birds are still good!
*Ducks are 1.1 now and 1.0 can not breed.
*Bulk Updater you can choose from Ducks or Chickens to update and set settings per normal
*You will need to replace your incubators by hand ( again I apologize for the inconvenience this may cause )
*All ducks age 7 and older will have their cycles reset to 12 and their vigor will be 100 you will not lose the vigor/cycles from this error.

I hope this helps clear up any confusion caused by this error and Again I Apologize for the error.

Racing and Training Explained!

Happy Monday everyone! Have you gotten a new racing trait and ready to head off  to the races?? I can hear the bugle call from here! As promised here is some more detailed information on racing and training!

 

~~~~~THE HUD~~~~~

1.) Can only connect one horse at a time to the hud.
2.) Can only wear one hud at a time.

 

 

~~~~~THE STATS~~~~~

ONLY NEW STARTERS WILL CARRY THE HIDDEN RACING TRAIT TO PASS ON TO NEWER GENERATIONS. (Is not breed or coat dependent).

 

 

***SPEED***

 

Speed = 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

 

Class D is where horses start
Classes S,A,B,C, and D are trainable and passable

 

 

 

***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

 

 

***BREEDING***

 

Offspring of horses with the racing trait have a chance to receive the racing trait of their parents.

The Racing traits come from breeding “Starter Coats” together or one starter with any other horse.

Please note that the Racing trait CAN be passed on.

When the Racing traits pass they can pass as the same class, one class higher, one class lower or even two class’s lowers.

Well I hope this gives you guys a better understanding of the racing and training! Until next time happy racing everyone!
