No Gravatar

Double Points Weekend!! That’s right, beginning right now any Horse sent to Horse Haven, any K-9 sent to Puppy Paradise and any Bird sent to Sanctuary will receive Double Points!
If you are purchasing horses, K-9s, birds, bundles, kennels and nests to send to Horse Haven/Puppy Paradise/Bird Sanctuary please remember that you MUST rerez them so that you will get the points and not the person who previously owned the item!

The double Horse Haven/Puppy Paradise/Bird Sanctuary points will end Monday, June 1st at 10 am SLT. So after June 1st at 10 am SLT normal points will resume. You can check your Haven Points, Kennel Cash, and Henny Pennies at any Amaretto location by using the balance inquiry button or by going to the Haven sim and clicking either the giant chess piece, the mail box or the giant chicken. Please be sure when you are using the vendors that you are choosing the correct Haven/Puppy Paradise/Bird Sanctuary item as returns and exchanges will NOT be given.

We have some other exciting news for our breeders too…

Starting Friday, May 29, 2015 at all Horse Haven vendors you will find the new Safari Edition Haven Horses!! The Safari Edition Haven Horses come in 4 different coats: Giraffe, Tiger, Leopard and Gazelle. These come random coat and random gender. The coats DO NOT have the ability to pass but the upright long mane DOES have the ability to pass as well as the beautiful coordinating eyes. Remember when you breed a Horse Haven Horse (whether it is with another Horse Haven Horse or any other horse) you DO have an increased chance at receiving a random Charmed Horse. But wait theres more!! If you breed these Safari Edition Haven Horses with ANY winged horse you have a chance at a brand new wing that only comes from these Safari Edition Haven Horses.

SafariEditionBox

 

We also have our very first Sanctuary Bird!! Starting Friday, May 29, 2015 at all Bird Sanctuary vendors you will find the first ever Sanctuary Bird – Wind it Up!! These Sanctuary birds come in a Rooster or Hen nest and random starter eyes. The Wind it Up breed DOES NOT have the ability to pass but it does work like a senior and Exotic bird in that it gives a slight boost to vivacity to birds with in its range.

We will have an all new Paradise Puppy very soon 😉

Have a great weekend and happy breeding!!

Barnyard Bird Update 2.0 Is Here!

No Gravatar

Happy Friday everyone! Guess what?! It’s here… The Barnyard Bird update 2.0 is here!! This is a MANDATORY Barnyard Bird update. Please read this Customer Connection and all notecards included with the MANDATORY 2.0 updater in world because most of your question can be answered in them. First let me take a moment to tell you all about the fixes and changes.

Fixes:

  1. Fixed shades showing on birds.
  2. Fixed settings being changed when updated.
  3. Fixed companion showing in hover text.
  4. Fixed Robo Bird blue prim.

Changes:

  1. **Added ALL NEW FOOD AND CONSUMABLES** (See notecard ***ALL NEW AMARETTO FOOD AND CONSUMABLES INFORMATION***BIRDS included in updater box for more information)
  2. Added new product “Beloved Bird” to make your bird a pet.
  3. Added new products “Hefty Mix Pack”, “Barley Bird Diet Hefty Pack (25)” and “Orange Rinds Hefty Pack (25)”.
  4. Added Vivacity Corn Single (Boxed) to the sanctuary vendors.
  5. Can now update your incubator no need to get new one for each update (This will be effective in future updates >2.0)

Somethings you need to know about the updater:

**IF THE BULK UPDATER DOESN’T UPDATE ALL YOUR BIRDS, RE-REZ THE BIRD AND TRY IT AGAIN, YOU MAY ALSO USE THE SINGLE UPDATER FOR BIRDS THE BULK UPDATER DOES NOT UPDATE**

1. It will not work if there is more than one updater out. It gives you a message that there are 2 updaters out please remove one. If you continue to try and update your bird It will give you another error message and have you pick one updater up and reset the other. (touch and wait 5 seconds to reset)

2. The updater will not work on sims with a high load. Dilation needs to be above .65 and region fps must be above 25 for the updater to work. You will get an error message that says the sim dilation is too low, we have enclosed a sim monitor that will display these values for you. Just rez on your sim next to the updater.

Update Instructions:

Single Updater: Place the updater near the bird that isn’t updated and click the bird and click the update button. The bird will be updated and the settings will be the same as before the update process. ***DO NOT PICK UP BIRDS OR THE UPDATER UNTIL IT HAS COMPLETED THE UPDATE PROCESS***

Bulk Updater: Place the bulk updater in the middle of your bird breeding area, click the updater and adjust the settings you want your birds to be set to after the update process, then click the update birds button on the updater menu. Do not remove the updater until it has completed updating all birds and the hover text above the updater reads FINISHED. ***DO NOT PICK UP BIRDS OR THE UPDATER UNTIL IT HAS COMPLETED THE UPDATE PROCESS***

Updaters can also be found at all of the Barnyard Bird store locations:

With v2.0, Amaretto has implemented all new food and consumables that have safety protocols. This was done to protect Amaretto as well as the community. Below are some F.A.Q. regarding the new food and consumables.

 

Q: Will older version birds use the new food and consumables?

A: No. The new food and consumables will only work with v2.0 and higher. Older version birds MUST be updated to use the new food and consumables.

Q: Will v2.0 birds use the old food and consumables?

A: No. Only older version birds will use the old food and consumables.

Q: I just purchased the old food/consumables, can I exchange it for new food/consumables?

A: Yes. We will be exchanging old food/consumables for new food/consumables purchased one month before the update. So if you purchased old food/consumables from April 22, 2015 until May 22, 2015, you can file a support ticket with transaction history and we will send new food/consumables to you in world.

Q: What safety protocols were added to the new food/consumables?

A: Although I can not go into great detail, I can tell you that the new food/consumables are recorded on our servers when purchased and now have a UUID just as the birds/nests do. When a breeder purchases food/consumables a “count” is added which only allows the breeder to rez that specific amount. Because of this, they can no longer be copied due to roll backs and will break if this is attempted.

Q: Have the permissions on the food/consumables changed?

A: No. The new food and consumables are still no copy/no mod/no trans.

 

We also have some more exciting news… Effective May 22, 2015 Amaretto has lowered their food prices by 10% on each pack. New prices for the food packs are as follows:

Barley Bird Diet Single (Boxed) 108 L

Barley Bird Diet Six (Boxed) 630 L

Also on this same time frame, May 5, 2015 until June 5, 2015 you can breed any color Wolves together for the chance of getting one of the Crazed Coat Wolves.  The Crazed Coat Wolves all come with one of 2 awesome eyes: Moon and Stars – Onyx or Moon and Stars – Blanco eye and the one of 2 awesome collars: Moon and Stars – Onyx or Moon and Stars – Blanco.  The coats on these also have cute names!

 

Blue Berry Crazed Coat Wolf

Basil Crazed Coat Wolf

Marmalade Crazed Coat Wolf
