The Null Trait!!

No Gravatar

Happy Monday everyone! Today I wanted to take a moment to go over an awesome trait you might not know about… the Null trait! The Null trait is available is the Amaretto Horses and K-9s! Nulls were introduced as a way to let breeders have the maximum number of traits on their breedable but have it still look the way they want it to look.  By using the Null traits to fill the slots of the traits you don’t want on your horse you can build yourself a highly traited horse that still looks like it has no traits!

 

The list below shows all the Null traits available for the horse and what each Null replaces.

Brand Null
Hair Gloom Null – Holds the place of Hair Gloom
Coat Gloom Null – Holds the place of Coat Gloom
Hair Chill Null – Holds the place of Hair Chill
Coat Chill Null – Holds the place of Coat Chill
Hair Warmth Null – Holds the place of Hair Warmth
Coat Warmth Null – Holds the place of Coat Warmth
Hair Blush Null – Holds the place of Hair Blush
Coat Blush Null – Holds the place of Coat Blush
Hair Haze Null – Holds the place of Hair Haze
Coat Haze Null – Holds the place of Coat Haze
Hair Hue Null – Holds the place of Hair Hue
Coat Hue Null – Holds the place of Coat Hue
Hair Luster Null – Holds the place of Hair Luster
Coat Luster Null – Holds the place of Coat Luster
Hair Gleam Null – Holds the place of Hair Gleam
Coat Gleam Null – Holds the place of Coat Gleam
Hair Opal Null – Holds the place of Hair Opal
Coat Opal Null – Holds the place of Coat Opal
Leg Null – Holds the place of socks and hoofs
Wing Null – Holds the place of Wings
Ear Size Null – Holds the place of Lanky or Scanty
Ear Style Null- Holds the place of Droop, Half Droop Left, and Half Droop Right
Racing null – Holds the place of racing stamina
Racing null – Holds the place of racing speed
Saddle Null– Holds the place of a saddle
Ear Tip Null– Holds the place of ear tip
Horn Null– Holds the place of the Horn

Remember that not all the Nulls listed can be on one horse at the same time.  The current maximum that a horse can have at one time is 18 nulls.

The list below shows all the Null traits available for the K-9s and what each Null replaces.

Ear Size Null – Holds the place of Small or Large Ears
Size Null – Holds the place of Runt or Pick
Nose Null – Holds the place of Black Spotted Nose, Pale Nose, Liver Spotted Nose, and Liver Nose
Tail Null – Holds the place of Long or Short tail
Polish Null – Holds the place of Paw Polish
Radiance Null – Holds the place of High or Low Radiance
Sheen Null – Holds the place of High or Low Sheen
Tint Null – Holds the place of Periwinkle, Lilac, Mint, Rose, Sunset, and Sunrise

The current maximum that a K-9 can have at one time is 8 Nulls.

So now you got all the info on the nulls. You can find it on our super informative wiki pages: http://amarettobreedables.com/pages/manuals

Have fun and happy breeding!!

Until next time…

 

Mules

Hi Everyone.

So I wanted to take a look at some very cute and adorable mules today as they are one of my favorite special surprises!

How do you get a mule you ask? well you can get the Ash, Brass and Sienna Mule from breeding any of the Haven Donkeys that you can buy from any Haven Vendor with Haven Points with any Amaretto horse (NOT another Haven Donkey) to get a chance at getting one of these special Mules!
However the Black Mule came from breeding the 2013 Limited Edition Cinco de Mayo Donkeys with any Amaretto Horse. WIKI LINK HERE
The White Mule came from breeding the 2017 Cinco De Mayo – El Primer Caballer Donkeys with any Amaretto Horse. WIKI LINK HERE

I really love these cute coats!.
It’s almost Monday and the weekend has passed so quickly so I will wish you all a happy start to your week.

Hugs Marku <3

Just for fun!

Copybot, Stolen Textures, and Amaretto Content!

No Gravatar

Hey guys! Its a lovely Thursday here at the ranch and i gotta tell you we have been super busy! I wanted to take some time out and talk about something very important and even very personal to me.

If you have ever created anything in SL you probably know its not any fun when someone takes your hard work and copybots, steals, or rips your personal work. This is no different for Amaretto!

CopyBot is a debugging tool used to access the virtual world Second Life. It is able to, among other things, export objects within Second Life to an XML file, which can then later be imported for use in the game. LSL scripts cannot be copied at this time

To read more about copybotting please read here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CopyBot

What does Amaretto do is they find a copybotted item?
Well we have to file a DMCA with Linden Labs and you can read all about that here:
https://www.lindenlab.com/legal/intellectual-property-infringement-notification-policy

But their is a gray area, like there is in most of our RL right?
Ever used a Amaretto logo at your sim or rental? What about a picture off the wiki? Is that stolen art? Well technically yes! However we allow our community members to use our wiki pictures as long as they are not selling them or putting them on something they are selling. Ya know like a sign, or to represent their breedable at an auction.

But whats not ok is to take any Amaretto art work and use it on something that you sell. This includes wiki pics, pics of eyes, pictures taken off our website.

When should you report someone? Well anytime you see a copy of an Amaretto product with the wrong creator listed! Or when someone is selling or using Amarettos Art for their own financial gain. I know most of you guys just upload a wiki pic and use it at your sales area and we are ok with that its when you upload 40 wiki pics and throw them in a box and sell them to other breeders that there is a problem.

It really sucks for someone to steal someone else’s hard work that goes for any platform! So please think twice about what you are doing! If there is ever something suspicious please contact a member of Amaretto Staff and let them know immediately! If you are still in the dark about who is Amaretto Staff please read here:
http://wiki.amarettobreedables.com/index.php?title=Contacts

Also remember Amaretto’s TOS, you can read all about it here:

http://wiki.amarettobreedables.com/index.php?title=Terms_of_Use

I know this is not an issue that most of you will never experience, but its good to be educated! Well happy breeding everyone this is Ava over and out!

Don’t Worry! Be Happy!

Happy Hump Day Fellow Breeders!

Now that I’ve got that song playing in your head, let’s look at ways to keep your breedables happy.  All Amaretto breedables must maintain a certain percentage of happiness in order to breed.

Amaretto Horses must have happiness above 75% in order for fervor to rise. Riding your horse, once it reaches age 7, will help increase happiness. In addition, you can keep your horses happy by using these consumables:

Salt Lick
This stat booster gives a 1% increase in happiness over time. It only needs to be used when you are trying to increase the Fervor of the horse for breeding and do not have the time to ride them. We do NOT recommend having out more than one Salt Lick at a time as the boosts will not stack.

Sugar Cubes
The one time use sugar cubes will increase one of your horses happiness by 15%.

Amaretto Cocktail
This one time use cocktail that will increase energy, happiness and fervor by 5% and decrease nourishment by 5%.

Amaretto K-9’s heat will rise as long as their happiness is above 75%. Your K-9 can receive an incremental boost in happiness when you hold or interact with them. You can use these consumables, as well, to keep your pup happy:

K-9 Chew Toy
This stat booster gives a 1% increase in happiness over time. It only needs to be used when you are trying to increase the heat of the K-9 for breeding and do not have the time to use the HUD to increase their happiness. We do NOT recommend having out more than one Chew Toy at a time as the boosts will not stack.

Rawhide Lollipop
The one time use Rawhide Lollipop will increase one of your K-9s happiness by 15%.

Mega Woof Vitamins
This one time use consumable will increase energy, happiness and heat by 5% and decrease hunger and thirst by 5%.

Vigor in your Amaretto Barnyard Birds will begin to rise if their vivacity is at 85% or above.  In order to get happiness up, you will have to hold them or feed them the following consumables:

Orange Rinds
These delicious orange rinds are used to build the vivacity of your Barnyard Bird! These are important as your Barnyard Bird must have 85% or higher vivacity coupled with 100% vigor in order to breed. The Orange Rinds give a gradual boost to vivacity slowly over time.

Vivacity Corn
These one time use Vivacity Corns will increase one of your birds vivacity by 15%.

Poultry Glow
Poultry Glow is the trifecta of consumables! The Poultry Glow provides a 5% increase to stamina, a 5% increase to vivacity and a 5% increase to vigor.

With the Amaretto Ponie Pals, moxie will begin to rise if the bliss is at 70% or higher. Holding or walking your Ponie Pal is not only fun but functional, as these activities give a gradual boost to the ponie’s bliss.  You will want to use these consumables, also, to help increase bliss:

Bliss Gummy Bear
This stat booster gives a 20% increase in bliss over time.

Rainbow Cake Surprise.
This one time use stat booster will increase bliss and moxie by 10%, the zing by 15% and decrease grub by 10%.

That’s a whole lot of happiness! And happy breedables make happy breeders, right?

Till next time…(you guessed it!) HAPPY BREEDING! 😊

Breeders Round table

No Gravatar

Hey everyone its a terrific Tuesday here today! Let me climb on my soap box for a moment, I have been racking my brain and trying to come up with a positive way that breeders can come together and talk about issues in the market.

Everyone wants to talk about the market, however I think that fewer are interested in bringing change or having an open conversation about the situation. I really wanted to give people a platform to give their opinions and suggestion on things we can do as a community to better the market.

So on Nov. 7, 2017 at 4 PM SLT I will host the first Breeders Round table! I believe that I have the ability to bring you guys together however I will not be involved in the conversation I will merely act as a moderator.

I want every breeder who wants to talk to have time to share their opinions and suggestions! I do want everyone to be respectful and open to hear what each breeder has to say.

I hope that this Round Table event will get a conversation going in the community and market and will bring about some change. Please spread the word to all breeders because if you or they dont attend the Round Table you will be missing out on a convo that needs to be had.

Even tho I will be hosting this meeting I will not be representing Amaretto or Amaretto’s ideas. I really want this to be for the breeders after all you guys are who control the 3rd party market not Amaretto.

I believe that the Amaretto Community is one of the best communities in secondlife it is time for us to come together and reach a solution for the thing that are going on in the 3rd party market. I know that breeders can be very passionate about their beloved breedables and it is my hope that this Round Table can become a great tool for everyone in the community!

So I am challenging all breeders, auctioneers, market owners, and sellers to please attend this Round Table and lets bring about some changes!

Happy breeding everyone this is Ava over and OUT!

Hi everyone hope you are all having a super Saturday and enjoying those awesome Halloween animals that were released this week!

Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year! The excitement of the season, the costumes, carving pumpkins, halloween parties, bobbing for apples – well I could just go on and on but today I want to share some important safety tips for a fun time while trick or treating.

 

 

And for a few Halloween chuckles I’ll close out the week with these:

Why didn’t the skeleton go to the Halloween party? Because he had no-body to go with

What do ghosts serve for dessert? I scream

Where does Dracula keep his valuables? In a blood bank

Until next week this is Snookie saying Happy Haunting!
