Gold Star and Open Door Policy!

No Gravatar

Hey everyone I wanted to take a few mins to talk with everyone. I know that today some people are frustrated and I know it can be hard i get that way myself.

I may be having the worst day in the world, but you guys would never know because its not cool for me to dump on you guys cause im having a bad day!

Yes everyone is allowed to have a bad day, I have told many breeders and ill do the same now if you are frustrated or have a problem its easy to search Avalon Crystal and then message and we can have a chat about it!

Now that you know I have a open door policy there is no reason why any breeder should ever feel like that you have no where to turn or go for help or when you are frustrated!

One another note, I want to share something that I think that everyone will like! There are times when myself or other staff members notice that someone who isn’t a mod being uber helpful and we want to reward those breeders!

So we will be sending out little surprises to people who are helpful and help generate the positive environment that we want our main group to be. It could be a Horse, K-9, Barnyard Bird, or even a Ponie Prize!

We are grateful for every breeder and want you guys to know and feel appreciated, this is just one way we will do this! So remember Ava’s eyes are watching! Ive already selected someone for today and want to give a big shout out to Nɪᴇʟ Eᴀsᴛᴇʀᴡᴏᴏᴅ (Niel Easterwood) for keeping a cool head and being so helpful today! Neil you get a gold star today!

Happy breeding everyone this is Ava over and out!

No Gravatar

Hello everyone!! Happy Thursday to you all! We have almost made it to the weekend! However, even tho it isn’t the weekend… today is a special day! Today we are releasing Update v1.10 for the Ponie Pals!! We are releasing this update to correct a few errors that were discovered after release. Below you will find a list of fixes that are included in this update.

Amaretto Ponie Pals – Ponie Bulk Updater v1.10 Fixes/Changes:

Fixes:

1.  Recovery timer issue

2.  Moxie/Bliss issue

Changes:

1.  Removed the Wake Up function

2. Added update button to settings menu (for future updates)

Something’s you need to know about the updater:

**IF THE BULK UPDATER DOESN’T UPDATE ALL YOUR PONIES, RE-REZ THE PONIE AND TRY IT AGAIN**

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.

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.

To Use The Bulk Updater:

Place the bulk updater in the middle of your ponie breeding area, **click the updater and adjust the settings you want your ponies to be set to after the update process**, then click the update ponie’s button on the updater menu. This updater has the ability to update all of your ponies in an entire region. However, depending on sim performance it may only do the ponies in a 96 meter radius. Do not remove the updater until it has completed updating all ponies and the hover text above the updater reads FINISHED. ***DO NOT PICK UP PONIES OR THE UPDATER UNTIL IT HAS COMPLETED THE UPDATE PROCESS***

Amaretto Ponie Pals – Basket Updater v1.10 Fixes/Changes:

Fixes:

1.  Menu issues

2.  Stats showing gender in local

Something’s you need to know about the updater:

1. You can update up to 15 baskets at one time

2. The baskets have to be in range of the updater (5m radius)

3. Baskets must have “SUCCESSFULL_BASKET” in the UUID to be updated

4. There is an option to turn on/off range indicator on the updater (must have particles enabled on your sl viewer)

5. Can only update a basket once and will only update any version birthed baskets.

To Use The Bundle Updater:

Rez the updater out and select “range on” from the updater menu. Place up to 15 baskets within the range area of the updater and select “update” from the menu. ***DO NOT PICK UP BASKETS OR THE UPDATER UNTIL IT HAS COMPLETED THE UPDATE PROCESS***.

Hello Amaretto Community and Happy Wednesday! I hope everyone;s week has been going great! We’ve made it half way through!! How is everyone liking the Ponie Pals? I am loving them!! Speaking of Ponie Pals… today I wanted to take a moment to go over the main menu for the little cuties. Once you understand the main menu better it will make breeding more fun and enjoyable! Let’s get started!

Last Bred: Says, in local, the last ponie that it was bred to, or says “This Ponie has never been kissed!” if they have never been bred

  • Hold (Will ask to attach the ponie, select yes and this ponie will attach to your right arm to be held)

While wearing the ponie, you can edit and adjust it to where you like. When finished adjusting, click the ponie select save from the menu and it will save the position for next time.

To remove the ponie, just detach it in inventory. If you want to change the animation between walk and hold, rez the ponie back out and use the wear menu again.

**When attaching the ponie to your avatar, it can possibly remove your avatar mesh body. Just add your mesh body back after attaching the ponie.**

Consumables: this menu lists the consumables you can use on your ponie

  • Cake! (multi stat booster)
  • Soup (used to heal the ponie when sick)
  • Energize Me (stat booster used for zing)
  • M Sundae, Moxie Sundae (stat booster used for moxie)

I hope this helps everyone gain a little more understanding of the Ponie Pals main menu!

Happy breeding everyone!

Until next time…..

Handy Dandy Basket Updater *Important Please Read*

No Gravatar

Hello Amaretto!! Hope everyone is excited about the weekend coming up! Thanks to one of our loyal breeders, we discovered a bug in the birthed ponie baskets. When you click stats it adds an extra set of hover text stats above the basket. This does not damage the basket unless it is done continuously, then it could break it. This does not effect it if just clicked and birthed, but we recommend updating every birthed basket with our new handy dandy Basket Updater!! This will fix the issue with the updated basket as well as the future offspring of the basket. We thought it would be much easier to update a basket here and there rather then every one of your ponies. We are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause, but with the quick thinking of our breeder friends and our scripting team we came up with a solution we think works best for you as well as our customer service team. I have added a pic and the instructions below, happy breeding everyone!

Amaretto Ponie Pals – Basket Updater v1.0

Something’s you need to know about the updater:

1. You can update up to 15 baskets at one time

2. The baskets have to be in range of the updater (5m radius)

3. Baskets must have “SUCCESSFULL_BASKET” in the UUID to be updated

4. There is an option to turn on/off range indicator on the updater (must have particles enabled on your sl viewer)

5. Can only update a basket once and will only update any version birthed baskets.
Updater instructions:

Rez the updater out and select “range on” from the updater menu. Place up to 15 baskets within the range area of the updater and select “update” from the menu. ***DO NOT PICK UP BASKETS OR THE UPDATER UNTIL IT HAS COMPLETED THE UPDATE PROCESS***. When the updater reads “Done” you may then pick up your updated baskets and repeat to update more baskets.
