Living in a virtual world can be tuff! Its not pixels and dreams like one may think! The truth is we are all on sl servers, and when they reboot or rollback, man can it cause a mess of your breedables!

 I know that you guys have seen it mentioned before, however I cant help but notice in the majority of the tickets you guys still arent putting all the info that will ensure your issue is resolved as fast as possible.

 One issue that you might encounter is a duplicated horse! The horse will have a red hover text that reads:  Duplicated horse, please file a ticket with Amaretto

 But don’t panic it’s a easy fix just file a ticket and the CSR will ask you to send all copies of the duplicated horse!

Another popular issue that happens is [20:26] Amaretto Breedables Bundle: This bundle had an error, MOTHER_HAD_SECOND_BUNDLE_IN_THREE_DAYS:

 This happens when a horse has a good bundle, and secondlife rolls back the sim and turns the good bundle into a bundle that reads [20:26] Amaretto Breedables Bundle: This bundle had an error, MOTHER_HAD_SECOND_BUNDLE_IN_THREE_DAYS

 If you encounter this issue please click on the mother horse and go to the breeding menu, then last bundle you will se the following in local chat

 The last bundle dropped by this horse was Amaretto Breedable Bundle with the ID of d807a2b9-9dd4-1e8e-631a-7cf4c7e9dadc

 You can now include this information in your ticket and will help the CSR swiftly recover the bundle you are missing! Remember to check out the ARU schedule and attend those classes!

K-9 Zodiac Eyes!

No Gravatar

Hello everyone today i would like to retouch on the K-9 Zodiac eyes what they are and how to get them.

First off let me give a brief detail on what the chines zodiac is.

In Chinese astrology the animal signs assigned by year represent what others perceive you as being or how you present yourself.

Now with that said we gave this eye a slight twist. Each month the eyes rotate every 2-3 days and one K-9 Kennel on the grid will get the eye when the kennel drops.

Now whats so awesome about these eyes is each eye will have the months birthstone along with the symbol of the chines zodiac for the time frame it was dropped!!

It is completely random in which K-9 Kennel on the grid that is dropped will get it. So its a guessing game will your next kennel have a zodiac eye guess you will have to wait and see. Good luck and Happy Breeding.

 

BTW here is a link containing pictures of all the zodiac eyes to date for the K-9s we are currently on Year of the Tiger – Pearl

FEED ME!!!

First off please be sure to reset any of your horses that you are using pet food on, to pet food when you update, the updater is set to breedable food and if you update and do not reset retired horses or your pet horses to pet they are going to get hungry.

 

Two of the most important consumables:

 

Breedable & Pet Food :

 

Breeder Food- Is for horses you wish to breed once they reach 7 days old.

 

Pet Food- Is to be used when you do not wish to breed your horses. If you decide to breed your horse after feeding it Pet Food, it will take 7 days on Breeder Food for the effects of the Pet Food to wear off.

 

Using Food:

 

1. Rez the food/water within your horses set range. (A horse’s default range is 5 meters)

2. Can click the food/water to change options and see remaining %. Options include Owner only, Group only, and All.

 

A.Owner only: Will only be consumed by the owners horses.

 

B.Group only: Will only be consumed by horses in the same group as the food/water is set to.

 

C.All: Any horse within range of the food/water will be able to consume it.

 

Once the food/water has been completely consumed it will disappear.

 

In case your horses get hungry:

 

1. Re-rez fixes 99% of the issues.

2. If the land is set to a group, are the horses and food set to that group?

3. If the land isn’t set to a group, are the horse and food set to the same group as each other?

4. Check to see if the horse is set to the type of food out (more stats)

5. Re-set home position.

6. Sometimes giving them a Horsey Snack will help them start to eat so you may also want to try this. Remember your horses only eat once every 43 minutes so you may not notice a change immediately, be patient it takes 3 days for a horse to reach 100% hunger.

 

If your horse still doesn’t eat after trying this, you will need to file a support ticket. Please include a location URL, so that we can come out and see them, in world.

 

Remember if you put a horse in your inventory it will get hungry.

 

Your Horses will eat once every hour. If food is not present their hunger and thirst will rise until it reaches 100% at which time they will get sick, this will take 3 days.

A Vaccination can be used to Heal your Horses or they will eat their way out of sickness in approximately 3 days.

 

****REMEMBER TO RESET HOME POSITION IF YOU EDIT MOVE YOUR HORSE

 

****IT IS BEST TO RE-REZ YOUR HORSE OR NEXT TO THE FOOD INSTEAD OF EDITING IT OVER**

Thank goodness it’s Friday!! This has been a long hot week for many people and I for one am glad it is over! I finished my week off on a high note today by teaching a very enjoyable class at Amaretto Ranch University!

Today’s class was called “Chasing Special Horses” and was all about Charmed, Mystique, Show Horses, Elementals and those elusive Albinos (Albiners for those of you who attended my class this morning).

I wanted to take a moment to thank the nearly 40 people that showed up for that class and asked some very hard (but good) questions!!
We teach these classes at the University twice a day on days there are classes. So if you cannot make the morning class be sure to attend the evening class. Just for fun you could go to both classes as no 2 teachers are ever the same!!

So tonight I hope to see you all at the class maleficent will teach starting at 5pm slt.
Remember to check the calendar of classes all you need to do is log in to the Amaretto Website, then look below your picture and choose ARU Calendar.

These classes are your opportunity to learn about Amaretto directly from Amaretto staff and also be able to ask us questions that you might have. We love myth busting so bring your books, notecards and best questions to class!

Hey guys its very frustrating for Amaretto to learn about copybotters   and stolen horses and all of the things that will ruin the fun for everyone.   So just yet another reminder, a few things you can do to protect yourself and your horses.

  • Don’t buy/sell horses to avatars that are only one day old.
  • Always set prices of your horses in your inventory.
  • Don’t buy horses from random people iming you.
  • Always check the creator of the horse/K-9/Barnyard Bird. It should always without exception be JJ Cerna(Horses) or Ancient Biscuit(K-9s) or Mazelina Menna(Barnyard Birds).
  • NEVER i mean never buy a duplicated horse or a horse that you haven’t seen rezzed in secondlife.

Amaretto can not be there to help you at every horse sale nor can we refund you if you buy a copybotted horse or a duplicated horse. 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 labs.

Please be responsible and protect yourself, its sad that this even has to be a connection.  But you guys have to be proactive and protect yourself against such scams and report all scammers to linden labs with a abuse report.

ALSO BE AWARE of residents spoffing their name to look like an official name these residents are often very very young and have common mistakes ( like putting JJ Cerna as jj cena resident ) ONLY buy the product if it is created by one of the above 3 names
