Amaretto K-9 Hud

No Gravatar

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

Today, since Dakota did her blog on horse hud thought I do one on K-9 hud an how it works.

To get a K-9 HUD you can click on any of your Amaretto K-9s and that will bring up the main menu. On the menu you will see Help, if you click that you will get another menu that has a button on it labeled  hud. By clicking the hud button you will receive a K-9 hud  sent directly to the objects folder in your inventory. Go to objects folder and find the hud, right click it and go to wear. It will attach to the upper left hand side of your screen. You can adjust this if you wish.

Black bar along the top: Name of K-9 connected to hud

Small Black “Hide” button; when clicked will hide your K-9 hud to the left of the screen

Large half circle: States what mode your K-9 is in Fetch.

Connect button: Looks like a plug with both ends together. This is to connect your K-9 to the hud.

Disconnect button: Looks like a plug with the ends not together. This is to disconnect your K-9 from the hud.

Green ball: This button, when clicked, will bring up a menu to get a ball, stick, newspaper or leash to play fetch and/or walk with your K-9

Fetch : This button is to play fetch with your K-9

Stay : This button is to make your K-9 stay put

Come : This button will call your K-9 to come to you

Follow : This button will make your K-9 follow you

GPS : This button can be used to set your K-9s settings
Animations (avatar petting a K-9): This button, when clicked, will bring up a menu which has petting options as well as the walk animation.

To connect your K-9 to the hud, click the K-9 and then click the hud button on the menu then click the connect button on your HUD. Make sure your K-9s movement is set to physical before connecting to the hud.

To disconnect your K-9 from the hud click the disconnect button

To play fetch, get a fetch item from the green ball button as described above (ball, stick or newspaper) and wear it from your inventory objects folder. Click the fetch button on the hud  and go into mouse look (bottom of your screen) and left click to throw the item. Your K-9 will run to fetch and bring it back to you. To change the range on how far you throw the item, click the item in your hand and set the range from the menu given.

To make your K-9 stay put simply click the stay button and they will stay where they are and not follow you.

To make your K-9 come to you click the come button and they will come.
To make your K-9 follow you click the follow button and they will follow where you go.

The animations button will bring up a menu to pet your K-9 or to walk them.
To pet your K-9 choose one of the different “size” animations.
To walk your K-9, wear the leash (from the green ball button) and the K-9 will connect to the leash and you can walk them around on your sim.

Until nest week Happy Breeding !!!

Happy Thursday!  Today I am shining the Spotlight on a couple of features in the horses that go unused far too often.  The Brushing and Feeding Animations!  These 2 awesome animations are super easy to use, fun and also they make for great picture taking opportunities.

Using these 2 cool animations is super easy!  Follow my instructions below:

 

Click your horse, choose the Help button and then pick Get HUD.

Wear your HUD and rez your horse in world.

Click the animations button on the HUD and you will see the Brush and Feed Animations.

 

Brushing your horse:

1st be sure your horse is rezzed out and you are not wearing it

From the main menu on the HUD select Animations then select Brush

You will get 2 options Large and Regular

Depending on which you choose you will get an object in your inventory named either Regular Horse Brush or Large Horse Brush

Wear or add the Brush and you will get a pop up menu with different grooming options.

 

Feeding your horse:

1st be sure your horse is rezzed out and you are not wearing it

From the main menu on the HUD select Animations then select Feed

You will be sent an object in your inventory named Green Amaretto Apple

Wear or add the Apple and you will get a menu option to choose your avatar size.

 

 

So see now you can have even more fun with your horses simply by playing around with the Horse HUD.

Until next week, Happy Breeding!!

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

Today I would like to tell you about some of the the Amaretto Barnyard Bird , Exotic Birds and Class.

Farm Class
Amaretto Breedables all begin with the “Starter Breeds” that are sold in farmers and clutch packs as well as individual Hen or Rooster packs at all the Amaretto Barnyard Bird stores.
The Class stat classifies the birds stats.
They each come with possible hidden breeds and traits. The hidden breeds/traits may or may not be Non-Starter. When breeding new starters together, it is important to remember that the hidden breeds/traits may or may not drop in the first nest or even the last nest. You just never know!
Remember, once a starter always a starter.

Jester Class

The Jester Class does some amazing things to your Barnyard Bird. Benefits of Jester Class are:
Never go below 75% vivacity

The Jester Class CAN pass!

Bird of the Line Class

Bird of the Line Class does some amazing things to your Barnyard Bird. Benefits of a Bird of the line are:
will never sleep!
never go below 100% stamina.
never go below 75% vivacity (Jester Class)
Bird of the Line also gets any traits from future classes released.
Bird of the Line CAN pass.
Any future class traits will be added to your current Bird of the Line through an update.
Exotic Birds

Egghead Barnyard Bird

Exotic Birds are Special/Rare Birds that will give a gradual boost to the Vivacity of birds within 10 meters over a period of time
Exotic Birds are very special birds that can be born at random from ANY bird breeding combination.
The Egghead is NOT able to pass their breed or eyes. However, you could get extremely lucky and birth another Exotic Bird.
When you breed an Exotic Bird (whether it is with another Exotic Bird or any other bird) you DO have an increased chance at receiving another random Exotic Bird.
The non-Exotic offspring of Exotic Birds do NOT have an increased chance of producing Exotic Birds.

Rubber Chicken

Exotic Birds are Special/Rare Birds that will give a gradual boost to the Vivacity of birds within 10 meters over a period of time
Exotic Birds are very special birds that can be born at random from ANY bird breeding combination.

Robotic

Spotlight on Racing

No Gravatar

Happy Thursday Amaretto!  Today I wanted to shine the spotlight on something that can be lots of fun of fun while you are waiting on those bundles to drop.  Racing!!! That’s right you can race your Amaretto horses or train them just for fun to increase their speed and stamina traits.  Remember your horse must have the racing traits first before you can train them.  Now let me include all the pertinent information you’ll need to begin training or racing your horses.

~~~~~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.

 

Remember riding your horses boosts not only their happiness but yours as well!

 

If you need a place to race or train your horses you are always welcome to use the Amaretto Racetrack at Boomtown. This slurl will take you to the racetrack all you need to bring are your horses and your friends and there will be fun had by all!

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Amaretto%20Ranch%20Boomtown/133/108/2489

 

You can also attend the AMOC races each month to join in on the racing fun.  Watch notices for dates and times!

Until next time Happy breeding and Happy Racing!

You can find a Bird Sanctuary Vendor at any Amaretto Ranch Barnyard Bird store locations with the exception of the main Barnyard Bird location because we have the Amaretto Haven sim located right next door!!

I wanted to remind everyone that when you send a Bird to Bird Sanctuary
it is a total of 3 clicks:

1. Settings
2. Bird Sanctuary
3. Yes

Amaretto has put precautionary measures in place so that you do not accidentally send any Bird to Bird Sanctuary. You MUST confirm before anything is sent to Sanctuary.

This means that no Bird will be returned to you from Bird Sanctuary accident or not. So please make sure that this is what you want to do!!!!

Raising Barnyard Birds is fun and exciting! Did you know that if you turn their animations on and their extra animations on that you can bump your bird from behind and it will flap its wings, run a squawk? Well try it sometime it is fun to watch them!

Until next time, enjoy breeding!!!

Howdy breeders! Today I would like to cover the GPS. We have a GPS for each of our breedables. We have the Global Pony Settings barrel for horses, the Global Pup Settings hydrant for K9, and the Global Peck’n Sort silo for birds. These nifty devices were created to make life just a bit easier for breeders. The GPS turns possibly hundreds of clicks into a handful of clicks. The GPS is a FREE device that is given out at any Amaretto Horse, K-9, or Barnyard Bird Store.

Before we get into how these awesome devices work, it’s important to point out that the GPS will set all the horses, k9, or birds in a sim that are listed under the owner’s name. It’s important to remember this if you have special pens set up to manage special projects. Please also remember that there is a separate GPS for each of the three Amaretto Ranch Breedables.

When you get your Amaretto Global Pony Settings (GPS) from the Amaretto Store, you’ll open it to your inventory and find inside Instructions, Land Marks, TOS and the GPS itself. When you rezz your GPS and click on it, you will find the following Global Settings options

 

Set Range

This will allow you to set the range on your breedables. When you click this button you will put in local chat the range you wish your breedables to be set at.

Activate

Once you have made all the changes you would like to make to the settings of your breedables click Activate from the drop down menu and all your settings will be activated. If your text setting is left in the on position, you will probably notice the text on your K-9s will go off and then come back on.

Home Set

With this option you can keep the Home setting where it was or tell the GPS to reset the home on all rezzed breedables to their current location.

Text Off

This allows you to set the text to off.

Sounds On

This allows you to set the sounds to on.

Sounds Off

This allows you to set the sounds to off.

Anims On

This allows you to set the animations to on.

Anims Off

This allows you to set the animations to off.

Text On

This allows you to set the text to on.

Move Physic

This allows you to set the movement of your breedables to physical. When set to physical your breedable will not walk through other objects.

Move Phant

This allows you to set the movement of your breedables to phantom. When set to phantom your breedable will walk through other objects.

Move Off

This allows you to set the movement of your breedables to off.

Happy breeding!
