  6. You can only train your horse ONCE daily for the amount of time allotted by the Horses Class and only in one category (speed or stamina)per day.
    • Ex. I trained my Class D horse for 30 minutes on speed today so I will have to wait for 24 hours before I can train it again for stamina.

THE STATS

SPEED

Speed = The Sprinting speed of a horse.

Speed is ranked using the following Class system:

  • S = 3x Avie Run Speed (ARS) {Highest Possible Class} 50 minutes of training time
  • A = 2.5x ARS 45 minutes of training time
  • B = 2x ARS 40 minutes of training time
  • C = 1.5x ARS 35 minutes of training time
  • D = ARS {Lowest Possible Class}30 minutes of training time

Class D is where horses start

Classes S,A,B,C, and D are trainable and passable

STAMINA

Stamina = The amount of time a horse can sprint without recharging . Stamina is ranked using the following Class system:

  • S = 50s of sprinting and 50 minutes of training time
  • A = 45s of sprinting and 45 minutes of training time
  • B = 40s of sprinting and 40 minutes of training time
  • C = 35s of sprinting and 35 minutes of training time
  • D = 30s of sprinting and 30 minutes of training time

Class D is where horses start

Classes S,A,B,C, and D are trainable and passable

XP

XP is gained through training your horse in a given field (speed or stamina) to move from one class to the next you must train from 0% to 100% in the current Class of that field.

XP Gains as follows:

  • Class D gains XP @ .5% per minute of training
  • Class C gains XP @ .4% per minute of training
  • Class B Gains XP @ .3% per minute of training
  • Class A Gains XP @ .1% per minute of training

Class D is where horses start

Classes S,A,B,C, and D are trainable and passable

BREEDING

Offspring of horses with the racing trait have a chance to receive the racing trait of their parents.

The Racing traits come from breeding “Starter Coats” together or one starter with any other horse.

Please note that the Racing trait CAN be passed on.

When the Racing traits pass they can pass as the same class, one class higher, one class lower or two class’s lower. (This is based on the shown racing trait, not hidden traits)

**It is important to note that once a horse with racing traits is retired (pass the age of 120 days) not only will it be unable to breed, but you will also not be able to train or race a retired horse. **

 

Until next week Happy Breeding Everyone !

Learn All About The K-9 HUD!!

No Gravatar

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a nice and relaxing weekend! Today I wanted to take a moment to share with you a feature for the K-9 that is often an over-looked feature that is so much fun! I am talking about the K-9 HUD! Take a look below where I tell you about this nifty little HUD!

To get a K-9 HUD you can click on any of your Amaretto K-9s and that will bring up the main menu. On the menu you will see Help.

When you click help that you will get another menu that has a button on it labeled hud.

By clicking the hud button you will receive a K-9 hud sent directly to the objects folder in your inventory.

Go to objects folder and find the hud, right click it and go to wear. It will attach to the upper left hand side of your screen. You can adjust this if you wish.

What each button on the hud means :

Black bar along the top:
Name of K-9 connected to hud

Small Black “Hide” button; when clicked will hide your K-9 hud to the left of the screen

Large half circle: States what mode your K-9 is in Fetch.

Connect button: Looks like a plug with both ends together. This is to connect your K-9 to the hud.

Disconnect button: Looks like a plug with the ends not together. This is to disconnect your K-9 from the hud.

Green ball: This button, when clicked, will bring up a menu to get a ball, stick, newspaper or leash to play fetch and/or walk with your K-9

Fetch : This button is to play fetch with your K-9

Stay : This button is to make your K-9 stay put

Come : This button will call your K-9 to come to you

Follow : This button will make your K-9 follow you

GPS : This button can be used to set your K-9s settings
Animations (avatar petting a K-9):

This button, when clicked, will bring up a menu which has petting options as well as the walk animation.

To connect your K-9 to the hud, click the K-9 and then click the hud button on the menu then click the connect button on your HUD.

Make sure your K-9s movement is set to physical before connecting to the hud.

To disconnect your K-9 from the hud click the disconnect button
To play fetch, get a fetch item from the green ball button as described above (ball, stick or newspaper) and wear it from your inventory objects folder.

Click the fetch button on the hud and go into mouse look (bottom of your screen) and left click to throw the item.

Your K-9 will run to fetch and bring it back to you. To change the range on how far you throw the item, click the item in your hand and set the range from the menu given.

To make your K-9 stay put simply click the stay button and they will stay where they are and not follow you.

To make your K-9 come to you click the come button and they will come.

To make your K-9 follow you click the follow button and they will follow where you go.

The animations button will bring up a menu to pet your K-9 or to walk them.

To pet your K-9 choose one of the different “size” animations.

To walk your K-9, wear the leash (from the green ball button) and the K-9 will connect to the leash and you can walk them around on your sim.

Give the K-9 HUD a try and see how much fun it can be to interact with your K-9!

Until next week Happy Breeding !!!

Hooray For Hoof Paint!

No Gravatar

Howdy Amaretto Community! Today I wanted to take the time to talk about another awesome trait! This time I am going to talk about a gorgeous horse trait called Hoof paint! The Hoof Paint trait was introduced with the Limited Edition Rainbow Dapple Horses. The Hoof Paint trait CAN be passed on. It is possible to get a Hoof Paint Null. What that means is a Null trait is an “Invisible trait”, a placeholder. These placeholders were implemented as a way to allow the breeder to have a maximum trait horse but still look the way they want it to look. Take a look at the beautiful Hoof Paint Traits below! It is a great way to add or change up your special project horses you have been working on.

 

I hope this helps expand your fun special horse breeding!

Until next time!

Busting the Myths!

No Gravatar

Hey everyone its a wonderful Thursday here at the ranch! I wanted to take a few moments to talk about some of the silliest things ive heard.
There is a class at the ARU that you can take called Myth Busters!

Id say the most myths I hear about are breeding for Specialty coats!

Did you know that it doesn’t matter if your siblings are 1st or 50th Generation they have the same chance of getting an albino? Its true!

Lets talk about Charmed/Enchanted/Exotic animals! The DOS of any of these do not hold any magic or special chances at getting another! So it doesn’t matter if Mom, Gramma, or Auntie was a charmed!

This is one I am really passionate about is “pure” horses. Some breeders choose to market their bundles, kennels or nest as pure. Ok first whats a pure horse? Well lets talk about what a pure horse is, a pure horse would mean that the hidden traits and the ones you see on the horse in world are exactly the same! So just because you breed two white walkers together doesn’t mean you get a pure white walker bundle, its hidden could be a tawny meck from great gramma. So please be careful labeling and purchasing things that say “pure”.

Another one that REALLY gets my goat is that the same people get the good stuff, or only big breeders get the good stuff. Well let me break it down for you the server (computer for those who don’t know) pick which traits and coats you get. So that means josie, jason, tm, jaymee or myself arent sitting on the other end handing out what we think people should get! Who would have enough time to do that anyways do you know how many bundles drop everyday?

That brings me to my last myth. How many times has someone told you if you want a eye to pass to breed it to a white eye? Or if you want a coat to pass breed it to a weak coat. This is absolutely not true! There are no “weak” or “strong” breeds or traits it all has to do with the lineage! Say it with me it all has to do with the linage! Got it?

Well these are just a few myths that I hear often. If you would like me to address one you have heard send me a note card and I will!
I hope that i have helped you understand how breeding works just a little bit better! This is ava over and out!
