Category : Amaretto Announcements

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.

Interview with an Amaretto Breeder

Hey everyone hope you all are having a wonderful Saturday! Today I would like to introduce you all to LucyAdelia from our breeding community. You can usually find Lucy in the groups or hanging out at an auction so when you see her give her a warm hello.

Please tell the community a little about yourself. Where you are from and what brought you to Second Life?
I started out in SL as an adult about 7 yrs ago and got into breeding Amaretto and Kitty Cats. I came to SL when I had a work injury and was off work for a few months, broken shoulder and wrist and never left. I gave up the cats because i fell in love with horses.

Which Amaretto Breedables do you own?
Right now I own ponies, horses, k-9’s and birds

How did you get started in breedables?
My rl son got me hooked on breedables said it was easier to do than chat with a broken wrist

Do you own other breedables besides Amaretto?
No just Amaretto!

What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto Breedables?
Right now I am trying to get a new reptile coat with the horses and someone dear to my heart told me my crocodile tears was a good start……

What is your favorite Amaretto Breedable?
My favorite amaretto breedable is birds and k9’s but i still love the horses and now the ponies

What are some other things that you enjoy doing in Second Life when you’re not taking care of your breedables?
When not taking care of my breedables I can usually be found at auctions and doing my best to behave…. lol most the time that does not work.

Thanks Lucy for taking the time to tell us a little more about yourself and especially for not answering any of my questions with “how bout nooooo”!

Until next time this is Snookie hoping you all have a super Saturday!

Hello everyone hope everyone is having a good day! Its a thirsty Thursday! I wanted to take a few moments to show off this months Flags of the World Eye!

I can’t wait to see these showing up in projects all over the grid!

 

Happy breeding everyone have a wonderful day!

Scam Alert!!!!

Hello everyone hope has got to enjoy some sunshine this weekend!

I have recently been getting a lot of ims about 3rd party sales. Remember Amaretto will not be able to intervene in any after market sales because this is a transaction that takes place between two in world residents and does not involve Amaretto directly.

Why do I say this? Well I want everyone to know that you need to do your best to protect your self in the market.
Don’t pass horses until you receive full payment! I know we all want to help one another out but doing this just protects you in the long run.

Don’t pass horses for someone “to see” they can see it just as well with you as owner and the horse rezzed out in world.

If you are breeding with a partner or others make sure you keep your horses in your possession.

ScamAlert

The truth of the matter is that no one in SL can “steal” any no copy, no mod object, you have to pass it or set it for sale.

I would like to think we live in a world even virtually where people do the right thing but sadly this is not true for SL or RL. So please if you are not willing to take a loss of a breedable don’t pass or set for sale for anything less than the amount of linden you are willing to take.

To those avatars out there that do take advantage of Amaretto Community members DO NOT think that we are not aware of who you are and what you do. Please treat each other with respect and honesty that you would like to be treated with in any life.

Ok guess ill climb off my soap box now guys, I just am passionate about the Amaretto Community and don’t like it when people are doing things they should not do! This is Ava over and OUT! Peaceful breeding and selling everyone!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone!!
I hope everyone remembered to wear green today or you might just get a little pinch!

I know that some of you may have noticed a hidden surprise today in your bundles, kennels, and nest!

Thats right take a good look at the
Happy St. Patrick’s Day 2015 eye!

HappyStPatricks2015K9

ShamrockCollar

This collar is available until 12:00 PM SLT tonight each kennel that is born today has a chance of receiving this collar!!! This collar does have the ability to pass on!

I wanted to share this Irish blessing with everyone!

the shamrocks that grow,
And may trouble avoid you
wherever you go!

Happy breeding everyone and good luck! IF anyone finds a pot of gold let me know!!!

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

Today I had the pleasure of interviewing Kenai Runningbear! I am sure many of you have seen him in the group he is in the group a lot so say a hello to him when you see him. He is always helping out breeders that need help or showing off one of his amazing horses.

Please tell the community a little about yourself. Where you are from and what brought you to Second Life?
I was born and raised on the East Coast. After seeing Second life while watching an episode of CSI New York I decided to try it out. Shortly after starting in Second life I met the woman I will soon call my wife. We became really good friends then almost 7 years ago we were talking and decided that we should meet outside of Second life. Once we met we realized we were a perfect match. We soon had our first child together and have since had our second child together. Since starting Second life I have had many ventures to include breedable auctioneer and auction house owner.

Which Amaretto Breedables do you own?
Amaretto Horses soon to add Dogs and Barnyard Birds.
How did you get started in breedables?
I started breeding bunnies but quickly got tired of them because there wasn’t much I could do with them except feed them. A friend had shown me a horse that she had gotten and said that Amaretto had a cool Breedable horse that you could ride. I went to the Amaretto Store bought some Starters and have been breeding horses ever since. My soon to be wife and I have been fortunate enough to have been with Amaretto since shortly after they started. We have seen first-hand the many changes that have improved the horses to make them what they are today.

Do you own other breedables besides Amaretto?
No. After being with Amaretto for so long and after trying other breedables on the market I don’t get the enjoyment I do from breeding the Amaretto Horses.

What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto Horses?
Confection Horses and trying to make a 24 trait Anniversary Coat and of course the monthly Crazed Coats

What special projects are you working on right now with your Amaretto K-9’s?
Sadly not breeding any dogs at the moment trying to get my horses breeding where I wish them to be then I look forward to breeding dogs and Barnyard Birds.

What is your favorite Amaretto Breedable?
Amaretto Horses of course.

What are some other things that you enjoy doing in Second Life when you’re not taking care of your breedables?
My Horses take up a lot of my time but I do like to build when I get a moment

A big thank you to Kenai for taking the time to answer my questions! I have added some pictures of Kenai’s special horses.

Until next week Happy Breeding!

Do you have a Question?

There are several ways that you can get the answer to those burning questions!

First , you can go in the groups and ask your fellow breeders. Also in the groups we have group moderators, and you will also see the staff in the groups. So jump into the groups and ask!

Second, you can always go to a Q&A.The Amaretto Staff loves doing Q&A sessions at the Amaretto Stores on different sims. We try and do them on a regular basis. It is really great to see you all come out to them, even if you don’t have a question we can just chat!. This past week I have had a couple of awesome sessions, a lot of you came by and I heard some awesome ideas. Amaretto is always looking for new ideas. A lot of our breedables have come about by listening to our community to see what you all would like.

Watch your notices, we send notices when we are doing a Q&A!!

I always enjoy talking to you all, and getting to meet you all, so don’t be shy stop by and chat awhile!

Third, you can come out to the Community Meeting. Avalon Crystal hosts 1 each month and you can learn a lot there!This month the meeting will be November 20th at 4:00 pm (slt) Hope to see you all there
