Happy Friday Everyone! Today I was reflecting on the last 3 years here at Amaretto Ranch Breedables and all the amazing friends I have made along the way. That’s what I love about Amaretto, our Breedables are about so much more than just Horses, K9s and Birds. It’s about people and friendship and community. I have so many beautiful memories of the last 3 years so I had to share a picture of one of my all-time favorite memories at the bottom of this blog. I was blessed to meet the 2 members of our Amaretto Design Team this year and have shared a picture from where Chronic, Nashville and I met at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. We had a great time but did we ever get some strange looks walking around with *THE* Buckethead!

A few month ago I started a thread on the forum where everyone could share their favorite stories about how Amaretto Breedables had impacted their lives. Now would be a good time for everyone to take a minute and go there and read some of the stories shared and even share your own stories. I look forward to reading them all!

Well I really hope that the Amaretto Community is ready to party come Sunday September 1st we will have 5 sims rocking when we start to celebrate Amaretto’s 3rd Birthday! Lots of fun and some great live entertainment as well as the 1st Breeder’s Choice Awards which I can’t wait for!

Hope to see you all out there celebrating with us and until next time and for many years yet to come Happy Breeding!

Happy Friday everyone!  Hope you all had a great week!

 

Today I need to use my blog to ask for your help.  As many of you know the Amaretto Staff puts together events for you the Community each month.  Dances, Contests, Fishing, Hunts …. Lots of fun events are scheduled each month.  Well I am coming to you to ask for your input on these events!  Which events are your favorites and are there events that you’ve never seen us do that you would be interested in attending.

Let me hear from you.  I want your suggestions on the events you would like to see the Amaretto Staff put on each month.  Send a notecard with your suggestions on it to me, Dakota Delicioso, and be sure to put your name on it so I know where the great ideas are coming from.  I look forward to seeing all of your suggestions and I especially look forward to seeing you all at the Amaretto events.

 

Mark your calendars for the Amaretto 3rd Birthday Bash on September 1st!

 

Until next week, Happy Breeding!

 

Go Fetch!

Today I would like to take a moment to talk to you about the K9 HUD. I will go over how to use this HUD and the fun things you can do with your K9 while using the HUD. While the K-9 is attached to the HUD they receive a boost in Happiness. This happiness boost will increase as long as the K9 stays attached to the HUD.

Let’s first talk about where and how you can get a K9 HUD. To get a HUD simply do the following:

  1. Click on any of your Amaretto K-9s and that will bring up the main menu.
  2. On the menu you will see a Help Button
  3. Click this button and you will get another menu that has a button on it labeled HUD.
  4. After clicking the HUD button you will receive a K-9 HUD in the objects folder in your inventory.
  5. Go to the objects folder and find the K9 HUD
  6. Right click it and select wear. It will attach to the upper left hand side of your screen. (This can adjust this if you wish.)

Next let me cover using the HUD:

  • Wear the HUD – It will attach to your screen in the upper left corner
  • Touch the K-9 you want to interact with and chose HUD from the Blue Menu
  • Touch the Connect button on the HUD – It will confirm in local which K-9 is connected to the HUD
  • Now you can choose to have your K-9 do one of the activities listed on the HUD

Come, Stay, Follow

Next let me cover the buttons on the HUD:

  • Connect – This button lets you chose what K-9 you want to interact with
  • Disconnect – This button disconnects the current K-9 from the HUD
  • Follow – the K-9 will follow your avatar
  • Come – The K-9 will walk to your avatar and then sit near you
  • Stay – This will cause the K-9 to sit and stay in its current location
  • Get Ball – This button will send a ball to your objects folder for use with the Fetch button
  • Fetch – This button needs to be activated before you can throw the ball and have your K-9 go get it for you

K9_HUD_Labeled-300x232

To play Fetch with the K-9 using the HUD

  • Click the Get Ball button – This will send a ball to your objects
  • Wear the Ball – it will attach to your hand
  • Click Ball to set range for the distance at which the ball will be thrown. You can chose from 20, 40, 60, or 100 meters.
  • Click the Fetch button on your HUD
  • You will see the mouse look button at the bottom of your screen click that to go into mouse look
  • Aim where you want to throw the ball and left click your mouse to throw the ball
  • Your K-9 will run and retrieve the ball and bring it back to you as you will see it back in your hand and you can throw it again and again while your K-9 retrieves it for you.

Once you are done interacting with your K-9 via the HUD or you want to play with a different K-9 click the Disconnect button. This will disconnect your K-9 from the HUD and reset Home position where the K-9 is located at the time it disconnects.

So it’s time to play with those K9s and get their happiness rising!

Until next time….

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

This Wednesday i would like to touch a little on Amaretto Horse Haven, Puppy Paradise and Bird Sanctuary.

Well let’s start with Amaretto Horse Haven. First let’s remember this ONCE A HORSE IS SENT TO HORSE HAVEN IT IS UNRECOVERABLE.
When you want to send your horse to haven , you simply click the horse when menu comes down you click on settings then click on horse haven, then you will have to confirm that you want to send this horse to haven. Remember once a horse has been sent to haven it can’t be reversed.
When sending a horse to haven you will receive points for age and traits.
You will also receive Horse Cents to send in the vendor that is at all the Amaretto horse stores and at Amaretto Horse Haven.
Let’s move on to Amaretto Puppy Paradise. Remember this also with the K-9’s ONCE A K-9 IS SENT TO PUPPY PARADISE IT IS UNRECOVERABLE
When you decide to send your K-9 to puppy paradise you would do the same as you do with the horses. Click on settings then Puppy Paradise, and then confirm that this is what you want to do.
When sending a K-9 to Puppy Paradise you will receive Points for traits an age of the K-9. You will also receive Kennel Cash to send at the vendors in all Amaretto K-9 stores and at Amaretto Puppy Paradise.

Last we have the Amaretto Bird Sanctuary. Remember this also with the Barnyard Birds ONCE A BIRD IS SENT TO BIRD SANCTUARY IT IS UNRECOVERABLE.
How to send your Barnyard Bird to Sanctuary you would simply click the barnyard bird then click settings then click on Bird Sanctuary then you will have to confirm that is what you want to do.
The Bird Sanctuary will reward you with the Henny Penny for age and traits.

You can spend these Henny Penny rewards at any vendors located at the Amaretto Birds Stores an also on the Barnyard Bird Vendors on the Amaretto Haven Sim.

So be sure this is what you want to do when sending Amaretto Breedables to Haven, Paradise or Sanctuary because there is no turning back after sending them!
They are gone cannot be recoverable even if it is sent by accident so think about it before you hit send!
Until next Wednesday! Happy Breeding!
