Slurl Me!

Hey guys guess what it is FRIYAY! That means we have all survived another week! We are super busy here at Amaretto working on top secret update stuff! Enough about us lets talk about you!

It occurred to me earlier today that we do have some community members that do not know how to make a slurl!

SLurls and landmarks serve the same purpose. The main difference is that a SLurl is simply a text link, while a landmark is an inventory item type which can only be used inside of SL.

You can post a slurl in spam, in note card, or even an private message! If a Amaretto CSR ever answers your ticket with the reply please send me a slurl, I want you guys to be ready!

How to use and make SLurls
To use an existing SLurl:

Click this example SLurl.https://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Here
On the page it takes you to, click Visit this location to open it in Second Life.

To make a new SLurl:

Move your avatar to where you want to create the SLurl.
Click the place name in the location bar (near the top of the Viewer window) to convert it to a SLurl. It’ll look like http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Here/128/128/44.

Right-click and Copy the SLurl while it’s selected, or use Ctrl+V.

Paste the SLurl where you want it.

Alternatively, you can also use the WORLD MAP to get SLurls:

Select World menu > World Map.
Click Copy SLurl.

You can also enter another place on the map, then click Copy SLurl to get a remote SLurl.

Converting a landmark to a SLurl (and vice-versa)
To convert a landmark to a SLurl:

Select Me > Places.
Right-click a landmark and select Copy SLurl.
Paste the Slurl where you want it.
To convert a SLurl to a landmark:

Click or otherwise use the SLurl to get to its location.
Select World > Landmark This Place. The landmark is saved to your inventory.

So this is a great secondlife tip i use all the time! Hope this helps some of you guys that didnt know how to make a slurl. Happy breeding everyone this is Ava over and out!

Celebrate Diversity

Happy Hump Day Fellow Breeders!

“Anything is possible with sunshine and a little pink” – Lilly Pulitzer

It’s a genetic fact that no two of us are alike. Individuality is a good thing! Yet, the differences between us can, also, be a catalyst for criticism from others in the form of bullying.

Everyone knows someone who is a bully. Bullies intimidate others verbally, mentally, emotionally, and sometimes physically. Dealing with a bully is something most people have been forced to do at least once in their life. In fact, according to research, 1 in 2 people experience bullying at some point before their 20th birthday.

Bullying happens in every culture or society. It can happen at home, at school, in the workplace, and over the internet. What I’m trying to say is, anyone can be a bully, anyone can be victimized by bullying, but, together we can stop it. That’s the message behind the International Day of Pink (April 10). It is a day to unite in celebrating diversity and raising awareness to stop all forms of bullying and discrimination.

Why Pink?

Pink is a non-threatening color seeking appreciation, respect, and admiration. The color pink represents compassion, nurturing and love. It relates to unconditional love and understanding, and the giving and receiving of nurturing. Pink is intuitive and insightful, showing tenderness and kindness with its empathy and sensitivity. In color psychology, pink is a sign of hope.

Amaretto takes great strides to promote inclusion and positivity. That’s why they offer a diversity of traits; allowing you to create a design that shows your own individuality. Create something spectacular today! Here are just a few pink traits to get you started!

My breedable is hungry!

Hey guys its Ava! I hope everyone is enjoyig this Terrific Tuesday!

So with all the craziness that has been in sl the past couple of days I wanted to talk to you about sick Horses, K-9s, Barnyard Birds, and Ponies!

Ive seen a few people saying that their horses aren’t eating, I know there are several breedable market sims that have had known issues. I wanted to go over a few simple checks to make sure that all your settings are correct. I know some of you have been breeding Amaretto for years and know everything there is to know, but sometimes its only a setting that will keep your breedable from eating,

So here is Ava’s check list for a breedable that is not eating:

1. Are scripts turned on?
2. Is the food set to All, Owner Only, or Group?
3. Is the breedable set to to correct food breedable or pet?
4 Is the food within range?
5. Is my breedable frozen or duplicated?
6. Is my food duplicated? (check for a uuid in the description field of the food)
7. Did i rerezz the breedable?
8. Is my breedable up to date?

If you go thru all these questions and still can not figure out why your breedable is not eating you should go ahead and file a ticket to have a csr come out. I cant tell you how many times ive went to a breeders and its a simple setting that is keeping their breedable from eating! It can happen even to the seasoned breeder!

If your breedable is sick currently it will take 3 days for them to eat thier way out of sickness, unless you are talking about ponies, ponies must have ponie noodle soup once they have this poine is sick above their head!

So happy breeding and eating everyone!
This is Ava over and out!

Ponie Oasis!

Hello everyone and happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend! Today I wanted to take a moment to cover Ponie Oasis with you all! As most of you know, Amaretto Ranch Breedables offers a unique point system for ponies that you no longer wish to keep. Basically all your Ponie Pals have a point value in Ponie Oasis. You have to confirm to send a Ponie to Oasis, therefore it cannot be reversed. So make very sure this is something you really want to do. Even if it’s done by mistake it cannot be undone. So please be careful!

The Ponie Oasis Ponie Points Reward system will Reward you for your Ponies in the following way:
Starter Style = 100 Ponie Points
Hidden Style = 200 Ponie Points
Starter Eye = 100 Ponie Points
Hidden Eye = 200 Ponie Points
Starter Mane = 100 Ponie Points
Hidden Mane = 200 Ponie Points
Starter Tail = 100 Ponie Points
Hidden Tail = 200 Ponie Points
Every Generation lost = 100 Ponie Points

All of our Amaretto Ponie Pals Stores have Ponie Oasis vendors located in them. You can check how many points you have by clicking on the red Balance Inquiry button on the bottom right hand corner of the vendor board and it will display something in local that looks like this

[13:31] Ponie Oasis Vendor 1.0: You have 600 Ponie Points available

Here we have the costs in Ponie Points for the items currently available from the vendor:
Amaretto Ponie Pals Ponie Noodle Soup 10,000 Ponie Points
Amaretto Ponie Pal Rainbow Cake Surprise 12,000 Ponie Points
Amaretto Ponie Pal Moxie Sundae 10,000 Ponie Points
Amaretto Ponie Pal Energize Me 6,000 Ponie Points

If you wish to purchase any of these products you simply click on the board or box and you will receive a drop down menu asking you to confirm your purchase and the point cost. Once you confirm this purchase your order will be sent to you in world within moments.

I hope you all learned a little something new about Ponie Oasis!

Happy breeding! Until next time……
