Updating Your Breedables!

Happy Monday everyone!  Today I wanted to take the opportunity to talk to you all about updating and keeping your animals up to date!! Did you know that Amaretto only supports current version animals! This means if for any reason your breedable goes through support it will come back the most current version! Animals will only eat and breed correctly when the are current version. Let me list the current versions for you below :

Amaretto Horses: Version 5.5

Amaretto K-9: Version 2.2

Amaretto Barnyard Birds: Version 3.0

Amaretto Ponie Pals: Version 1.20

Amaretto Barnyard Ducks: Version 1.2

Amaretto releases an update for one of the breedables in order to add new things or to fix small issues.  Updating is easy and can be quite fun and exciting so let me tell you a few things about updating your breedables. You must update your breedables to take advantage of all fixes in an update. Now let’s take a look at how to update a breedable…

How to update your breedable?
It’s simple:
You will have to pick up your FREE updater at any of the Amaretto locations once an update has been released. Even when it isnt uda

Single Updater:
Place the updater near the animal that isn’t updated and from the animals menu select the update button. The animal will be updated and the settings will be the same as before the update process.

Bulk Updater:

Place the bulk updater in the middle of your breeding area, click the updater and adjust the settings you want your animal to be set to after the update process, then select the update button on the updater menu. Do not remove the updater until it has completed updating all animals and the hover text above the updater reads FINISHED.

***DO NOT PICK UP ANIMALS OR THE UPDATER UNTIL IT HAS COMPLETED THE UPDATE PROCESS***
Somethings you need to know about the updater:

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 horse 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. It will not update pregnant animals. The reason being the updater can potentially abort the pregnancy. Waiting to update your pregnant animals will not effect their functions, they will continue to eat, move, animate etc. When they give birth then you can update them. The bundle, kennel, or nest will be the old version and need to be updated when birthed.

3. 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.

4. Sick breedables can also be updated using the updater.

5. You can only update animals that you own.

You can also check out the how-to-videos on the website for easy instructions on updating:

http://amarettobreedables.com/videos/7/6/how-to-use-the-bulk-updater

http://amarettobreedables.com/videos/7/5/how-to-use-the-single-updater

Now you guys should be all ready to update your breedables when it’s time for an update ….. it’s not time yet! But an update is in t he works as we speak!!

Happy breeding!

Until next time….

I need your HELP!

Hey guys!! We are almost thru the week and made it to the weekend! I need your help!
As most of you guys know I maintain the lovely well used and needed wiki pages for Amaretto!

Help Ava? With what you ask? Well unfortunately I am not perfect! I know big surprise! I know that everyone uses the wiki and likes it, I can use your help with maintaining it! Sometimes things are overlooked and not added to the wiki, I try to ensure this doesn’t happen but sometimes it does.

I would like for everyone to please let me know via notecard if something is missing off the wiki, if there is a typo, or if a picture is missing. Just make out a notecard and link me the page that there is an error or simply let me know whats missing then send it on over to Avalon Crystal! Please dont send more than one notecard!

I will be working hard to get anything missing on any of the wikis added, and to be sure that all wikis are up to date with the newest traits!

I appreciate all of your help its a big job! This is Ava over and out! Happy breeding everyone!

Manage Your Breedables With Ease

Happy Hump Day Fellow Breeders!

Ever wish you could manage all your Amaretto breedables in just a few clicks? Well, guess what? You can!

Amaretto has created some handy dandy tools and they are absolutely free! They allow you to control movement, animations, text, sound, particles (for Ponie Pals only), range and home setting.

➧ For Horses its the Global Pony Settings (Barrel)
➧ For K-9s its the Global Pup Settings (Hydrant)
➧ For Barnyard Birds & Ducks its the Global Peck’n Sort (Silo)
➧ For Ponie Pals its the Global Ponie Sychronizer (Apple Tree)

A few things to point out:

➧ These devices apply settings SIM WIDE to EVERY rezzed breedable owned by you. So, if you have special pens set up to manage special projects you may have to manually reset those.
➧ Although 96m is the maximum for range, the “suggested” setting on any breedable is 40m.
➧ Turning off movement and animations CAN improve sim performance some. So, if you’re on an already laggy sim, you might consider keeping these options off in order to support better    performance. Text on or off has zero effect on the performance of a sim.

These time saving tools are available at all food store locations:

http://amarettobreedables.com/pages/locations

Plus, in addition to these goodies, Amaretto Ranch University offers FREE classes on how to use each GPS.

Check the ARU Calendar for class schedule:

Till next time…Happy Breeding!
