Hello everyone its a great Sunday here at Amaretto Ranch!
As always Ava here with some helpful hints about your Amaretto Breedables, I have seen a bit a chatter about things being sent to Horse Haven, Puppy Paradise, or Bird Sanctuary by mistake.

I wanted to remind everyone that when you send a horse to Horse Haven
it is a total of 3 clicks:

1. Settings
2. Horse Haven
3. Yes
Amaretto has put precautionary measures in place so that you do not accidentally send any Horse to Horse Haven. You MUST confirm before anything is sent to Haven, Paradise, or Sanctuary.

Here is what the pop up looks like:

HorseHaven

You must click yes to send your Horse to Horse Haven. Remember
***** WARNING******
ONCE A HORSE IS SENT TO HORSE HAVEN IT IS UNRECOVERABLE
************************

This means that no horse will be returned to you from Horse Haven accident or not. So please when havening your horses be careful!!!

Oppsies, accidents, or I didn’t mean to’s will NOT be returned! So be very careful!

This will be me last post until my trip to the pokey! Please remember to come out on Wednesday and support the Amaretto lock up! Until then I am a free bird! This is Ava over and out!

Happy Thursday!  We had a great time at the fishing event today, congrats to all the winners!

I wanted to talk to you all today about one of the greatest tools that Amaretto offers, the GPS!

What does GPS stand for and where can you get one? Well each breedable has its own GPS so I will tell you what each one stands for:

 

For the horses – GPS stands for Global Pony Settings and you can pick one up at any of the Amaretto Ranch Breedables Horse store locations.

 

For the K-9’s – GPS.stands for Global Pup Settings and you can get one at all of our Amaretto Ranch Breedables K9 store locations.

 

For the Barnyard Birds – GPS.stands for Global Peck’n Sort and this can be found at all Amaretto Ranch Breedables Barnyard Bird store locations.

 

Now once you pick up your GPS from the store you want to start by opening the box to your inventory. Locate the GPS in your inventory and rez to the ground in world. Click the GPS and you will get a drop down blue menu with the following options

 

Set Range – this will set the range of your breedables

 

Activate – After you have chosen all your settings, click this to activate your settings

(If your text setting is left in the on position, you will probably notice the text on your breedables will go off and then come back on.)

 

Home Set- this button is to decide to keep the Home setting where it was or tell the GPS to reset the home on your breedables

 

Text Off- this button is to turn off all text above your breedables

 

Sounds On- this button is to turn on the sounds your breedables makes

 

Sounds Off- this button is to turn off the sounds your breedables makes

 

Anims On- this button is to turn the animations of your breedables on

 

Anims Off- this button is to turn the animations of your breedables off

 

Text On- this button is to turn on all text above your breedables

 

Move Physic- this button is to set your breedables movement to physical

(While set to Physical, your breedables will not walk through other objects)

 

Move Phant- this button is to your breedables movement to phantom

(While set to phantom, Phantom your breedables will walk through other objects)

 

Move Off- this button is to set your breedables movement to off

 

 

 

Once you have set all settings to your wants and needs you simply click the Activate button and your settings will then take place!

 

The GPS will apply the settings you choose to all rezzed Horses, K9s, or Barnyard Birds on your sim. The GPS works sim wide. If you have horses, k9s, and birds you must use the breed specific GPS to set their settings. There is not a universal GPS that works on all three breedables. Also, I’d like to mention, if you have special projects that have special settings, please remember this when using the GPS as it does apply the settings to ALL rezzed horses, k9s, and birds.

 

I hope everyone now understands the GPS and how it works. It is a very hand tool!

 

Until next week, Happy Breeding!

Ready to Twist? Well this time we are combining the Fell Pony and Painted!! From April 5th 2014 until May 5th 2014 you can breed any color Fell Pony and any color Painted together and you have the chance of discovering a brand new coat designed especially for the Twist called Painted Pony! The Painted Pony coats do have the ability to pass and of course each will also come with a very cool twist eye that can pass as well. So get those Fells and Paints ready for next month and have the chance at some Painted Ponies!

Our K9s want to twist too so from April 5th 2014 until May 5th 2014 If you breed any color Dogue de Bordeaux with any color Jack Russell you have the chance of discovering a brand new coat designed especially for the Twist called Dogue de Jacques! The Dogue de Jacques coats do have the ability to pass and of course each will also come with a very cool twist eye and collar that can pass as well. So just to be clear you need to breed any color Dogue de Bordeaux with any color Jack Russell in order to have a chance at getting one of the brand new Dogue de Jacques!

Twist it up and Happy Breeding!

Pregnancy Boosters Are Amazing!

No Gravatar

Happy Monday!! I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! I bet quite a few of you breeders spent sometime this weekend watching your pregnant horses or K9s, waiting for that last 5% of pregnancy to finish! Well, did you know that Amaretto sells an awesome product called the pregnancy booster?! That’s right! These pregnancy boosters are sold in 1% and 5% for both horses and K9! You can use them at any point during a horse’s or K9’s pregnancy, however you can only use one booster per pregnancy. They are very easy to use…

1. Open boxed Amaretto Brand Horse or Amaretto Brand K9 Pregnancy Booster and rez next to the horse or K9 you wish to boost the pregnancy.

2. Click the horse or K9 and go to the consumables option on the menu.

3. Find Preg Boost from the options on the menu and click it. Once the horse’s or K9’s stats have been updated the Amaretto Brand Pregnancy Booster bottle will disappear.

Simple as that… buying a pregnancy booster can save you hours of waiting for that wonderful bundle or kennel to drop!

K9 Preg Booster

So have an awesome time breeding those horses and K9 and I hope you get some wonderful bundles and kennels!

Until Next Time…………..

I would like to touch on the subject of the ticket system and why we ask for you to send folders.

First let’s say those nasty rollbacks hit and now you have a duplicated horse. In order to get this fixed you will need to file a ticket on the Amaretto Support Site. If you have not signed up on the ticket system you will need to go here and register on this website.
http://support.amarettobreedables.com/index.php

We also have videos to help you file a ticket
You can go here to see a video for filing a ticket
http://amarettobreedables.com/videos/7/3/ticket-system

Please submit your ticket and a CSR will respond as to what you need to do.
If you are asked to send in your Breedable please send your Amaretto Breedables in a folder with your NAME and TICKET NUMBER so the CSR will know whom the breedable belongs too! It is very important that you send your items in a properly labeled folder so that we are able to return them to you promptly.
After we have repaired your issue the CSR will return your Breedable to you in a folder named Amaretto Breedable(s) from (CSRs name) Repaired. If you have any further questions regarding the issue you filed a ticket for please communicate with the CSR using the ticket you have filed.
Until next week Happy Breeding!!
