Amaretto Sick K-9s

No Gravatar

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

This week I am going to continue with sick breedables, this week it is sick K-9s. So if you see your K-9 getting hungry or sick you need to do the following.

First I will show you the chart Amaretto has for the food amounts

Here is a little chart you can remember as to how many breedable foods you can go through with x amount of K-9s

1 K-9 ~ 1 food/4 weeks
2 K-9s ~ 1 food/2 weeks
4 K-9s ~ 1 food/7 days
7 K-9s ~ 1 food/4 days
8 K-9s ~ 2 food/7 days
14 K-9s ~ 1 food/2 days
28 K-9s ~ 1 food/day
56 K-9s ~ 2 food/day
84 K-9s ~ 3 food/day
112 K-9s ~ 4 food/day

First if you see your K-9 getting hungry it is time to take action make sure you have food out close to the K-9. You can also get your K-9 a K-9 Treats this will bring down the hungry by 10%.

Amaretto offers the Vaccination which is particularly useful if you want to get a K-9 to recover instantly. These are sold at all Amaretto Ranch Breedables K-9 Stores and if you have enough K-9 Kennel Cash you can purchase these vaccinations via K-9 Haven Vendors at all Amaretto Ranch K-9 stores
All you have to do is rez the Vaccination nearby your sick K-9, click your K-9, select consumables and select Vaccination. Before your eyes the K-9 will go from sick back to perfect health.
So let not let your K-9 even get hungry
Do this make sure your K-9 and the food are all the same version.
Make sure you have set the range for the K-9 to consume the food. The default range is 5 meters.
Make sure you have the Amaretto Breedable or Pet food in the same group as the K-9 is.

So make sure you have checked all this and your K-9 should stay healthy.

Until next week Happy Breeding!!

Happy Thursday!  I wanted to shine my Spotlight this week on one of my favorite things each month …. The Community Meeting.  Last night we had a great Community Meeting with many of you showing up with lots of great questions and some really good suggestions.  I thought it would be fun and maybe even inspiring to many of you if I showed you some of the suggestions from the Community Meeting.  Remember there are many ways to get your suggestions or ideas to us here at Amaretto, the Community Meeting of course is one of them but you can also file a ticket on the support system and submit your suggestions, or you can go to the Amaretto Store locations and put your suggestions in 1 of the many Suggestion Boxes at the stores.  We get many great suggestions from you Community Members and I want to encourage you all to keep them coming and always attend the Community Meetings.

When you do have inspiration strike you be sure to get those ideas to us and remember that many of our best ideas have come directly from you the Amaretto Community!  (Josie sees them all)

I look forward to seeing you all at the next Community Meeting (the last Wednesday in August) and I can’t wait to see what wonderful suggestions you bring with you!

Until next time, Happy Breeding (and suggesting)!

Sick Amaretto Horses

No Gravatar

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

This week I would like to tell you all about sick Amaretto Breedables Horses and what to do if you have a breedable to get sick.

The Amaretto Breedable horse becomes sick if its nourishment is at 100% then this means the horse has become sick. The horse will turn green and have a tear in its eye. You will need a healing to make it all well instantly. You can also feed it Amaretto Breedable food or Pet food for 3 days to get it well again.

Instructions on how to use a healing kit
This one time use kit will heal one sick horse and bring its hunger and thirst down to 0%. You will need to rez food near the horse so that it can continue to eat and not become sick again!
1. Open boxed Healing Kit and rez next to the horse you wish to heal.
2. Click the horse and go to the consumables option on the menu.
3. Find Healing Kit from the options on the menu and click it.
Once the horse’s stats have been updated the Healing Kit will disappear.

I am including a chart as to how many horses to breedable food
1 horse ~ 1 food/4 weeks
2 horses ~ 1 food/2 weeks
4 horses ~ 1 food/7 days
7 horses ~ 1 food/4 days
8 horses ~ 2 food/7 days
14 horses ~ 1 food/2 days
28 horses ~ 1 food/day
56 horses ~ 2 food/day
84 horses ~ 3 food/day
112 horses ~ 4 food/day

If you see your horses becoming hungry remember to do this

1. Re-rez fixes 99% of the issues.
2. If the land is set to a group, are the breedables and food set to that group? Some sims have it set that no scripts can run unless they are set to the right group as the land.
3. If the land isn’t set to a group, are the breedables and food set to the same group as each other? So often the food is in one group and the breedable in another. The food is set to feed only those in the same group and before you know it you have sick breedables
4. Check to see if the breedable is set to the type of food out (more stats)
5. Re-set home position.
6. Sometimes giving them a Horsey Snack for horses, K-9 Treat for K-9s, will help them start to eat so you may also want to try this. Remember your breedables only eat once every 43 minutes so you may not notice a change immediately, be patient it takes 3 days for a breedable to reach 100% hunger.

Remember after your horse becomes sick it will not eat a horsey snack. You will then need to feed it for 3 days or buy a healing kit.

Until next week Happy Breeding!!!

Happy Thursday!! In the Spotlight today we have reached the end of our journey through the Amaretto Alphabet.  This has been a fun series of blogs for me to write and I have enjoyed coming up with them each week.  So without any further wait …….

 

Z is for ……………………….. Zebracorn!

 

I was looking at the wiki and decided to choose the Zebracorns to finish off the Amaretto Alphabet because they are so very pretty! There are 4 different Zebracorn that come with 4 different eyes.

Haven Horse Zebracorn – Brown/Teal

Eye:  Whimsical Sky

Haven Horse Zebracorn – Silver/Purple

Eye:  Whimsical Fire

Haven Horse Zebracorn – Gold/Yellow

Eye: Whimsical Ocean

Haven Horse Zebracorn – Brown/Orange

Eye:  Whimsical Forest

When you send your Horse to Horse Haven you will receive a number of points based on the number of traits and age for a particular Horse. Once you have accumulated enough points, you can use these points to purchase an array of items from the Horse Haven Vendor such as Pet Food, Healing Kits and our unique Horse Haven Horses.

If you breed the new Zebracorn with any other horned horse (the horn must be shown in the stats) you can have a chance at one of the Zebracorn’s horn passing.

The Zebracorns also have the ability to pass 4 different hidden wings:

  • Brown/Teal
  • Brown/Orange
  • Gold/Yellow
  • Silver/Purple

On Saturday September 27, 2014 we added Haven Horse – Zebracorn to the Horse Haven vendor!

The Haven Horse – Zebracorn comes in random gender.

The Whimsical eyes DO have the ability to pass.

The Haven Horse – Zebracorn are NOT able to pass their coats.

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. The non-Charmed offspring of a Haven Horse do NOT have an increased chance of producing a Charmed Horse.

 

I have decided that I really need to start a project with the Zebracorn so I can get those beautiful Whimsical eyes!  I encourage you all to head over to the Haven vendors and get your own Zebracorn today!!

Until next time, Happy Breeding Everyone!!

Ticket System Tips!

No Gravatar

Howdy Amaretto community! I hope that your week is going good so far! Stay strong… the weekend will be here before we know it!

Today I wanted to take a few minutes to talk to you about a few tips that will speed up your ticket process…

*Always include your full SL name, include resident if you do not have a last name!

*Include any transaction in reference to a purchase, including… not delivered items or even duplicated breedables that you recently purchased!

*Always be respectful to the Amaretto Staff they will help you in any way they can.

*Be sure to include enough information such as UUID’s, Parents information if having a bundle issue, or names of a missing horse.

*YOU MUST CHECK YOUR TICKET FOR A RESPONSE!! (if you do not respond in 3 days we will close your ticket)

*Tickets can take up to 72 hours so please don’t bother the csr’s if your breedable is not immediately returned.

* Please understand if you are not showing as owner of a breedable on our servers we can not return it to you. (That means no tickets for friends, family, or partners) You wouldn’t want us to send your horse to someone else!

*If the CSR ask you for a slurl, make sure they are on your allowed list and paste the slurl to the breedable your having a issue.

*Don’t file several tickets for the same issue you can include multiple issues on one ticket, the more we have the longer it takes to get to them all.

*Do send all breedables in world in a folder with your name and ticket number (Example: Jaymee Caproni AQM-222-22395), as many breedables that are passed to us with no name they can easily get lost in our inventory.

*Make sure that you are sending the breedable to the correct CSR. Don’t assume it will be the same one who did your last ticket. Read your responses carefully and send to the proper CSR.

*Don’t message a csr in world and ask why isn’t my ticket done! We answer them in order as received and we will get to yours ASAP

*Doing all of these things will ensure your ticket is answered and not left asking for more info because we can usually close a ticket if all info is included!

If you have never filed a ticket please watch the video on this page it will help you get registered and on your way to ticket filing with ease!

http://support.amarettobreedables.com

Please observe all the rules of the ticket system.

If you are unable to login or need more help reporting an Amaretto issue you can message Avalon Crystal or send a note card if im not available!
