Expired Breeding Explained

Happy Hump Day Fellow Breeders!

On almost a daily basis, we continue to see people ask why they’ve gotten a bundle that says “expired breeding”. This Connection is intended to explain the reason why.

On Saturday, April 27, 2019, Amaretto released the ALL NEW 6.01 Horse update. This update is jam-packed with lots of new and exciting fixes, changes and additions. Read Josie’s connection for a detailed listing https://amarettobreedables.com/connection/?p=19131

The updater can be purchased for L$0 at any Amaretto Breedable Horse Store. Find locations here https://amarettobreedables.com/pages/locations

As with all past updates, there was a time limit for you to get your horses updated in order for them to pass viable bundles.

Per the note card from the update:

AFTER Saturday May 11, 2019 WE WILL NO LONGER PROVIDE SUPPORT FOR HORSES THAT ARE NOT v6.01* HORSES MUST BE UPDATED TO V6.01 TO FUNCTION PROPERLY!

Q: What do you mean by “not function properly”?
A: ALL versions that are not v6.0 will no longer produce viable offspring. Meaning any bundle produced by all versions that are not v6.01 will have the text EXPIRED BREEDING, will not birth and cannot be fixed.

***So PLEASE update your horses before May 11, 2019

As that date is now past, any bundle dropped, from a horse that is not 6.01, will show “expired breeding”. These bundles CANNOT be repaired. DO NOT FILE A TICKET! You are advised to delete the bundle, update the horse and start again.

Remember, pregnant horses cannot be updated, but, updating female horses, in recovery, will remove their recovery period and they can begin building fervor again, immediately.

It is up to YOU to stay informed about your breedables. As Josie stated in her Connection about being proactive ( https://amarettobreedables.com/connection/?p=19341 ), we provide information to you on a daily basis via notices, blogs, Facebook, and Twitter.

Group notices are archived for 14 days and can be found by going to the Group Profile and then clicking on the Notices tab.

Connection posts are archived by month, forever! From the main Connection page ( https://amarettobreedables.com/connection/ ), go to Archives to read every Connection that has ever been posted.

Save yourself the time, effort, consumables, and loss of bundles by making sure all of your breeding horses are updated NOW!

Until next time…HAPPY BREEDING!

6.01 Cleared Up!

Hello everyone its another Terrific Tuesday here at Amaretto, I wanted to adress a few things that I have been hearing lately.

The first thing I want to talk about is
Wing Style: Pegasus
Wing Color: Blizzard
Horn Style: Unicorn
Horn Color: Shadow
Saddle Style: Racing
Saddle Color: White

With the 6.01 the way traits were listed on horses and bundles were changed a little.
When we flipped the switch on 6.01 everyones bundles text appeared differently, that does not mean that your bundle became more traits.

So the low down on this is wing, horn, or saddle is still only 1 trait, we have separated the style and color so that we have the ability to add different styles that opens the possibility for all kinds of wings, horns, and saddles!

Now lets talk about the new headpiece trait! If you got and breed some of the Mothers Day Edition horses then you had a chance of getting a brand new trait Head Piece: Bow Fuchsia! How exciting its now the 26th trait! That means that you can have a Head Piece and horn!

So here is the maximum traits for a horse:
1 Coat (Non-Starter)
2 Eye (Non-Starter)
3 Mane (Non-Starter)
4 Tail (Non-Starter)
5 Coat Gleam
6 Coat Luster
7 Coat Gloom/Chill/Warmth/Blush/Haze/Hue
8 Coat Opal
9 Hair Gleam
10 Hair Luster
11 Hair Gloom/Chill/Warmth/Blush/Haze/Hue
12 Hair Opal
13 Branding
14 Hoof Paint/socks/leg null
15 Ear Size (scanty,lanky)
16 Ear Style (droop,droop left,droop right)
17 Class Stamina
18 Class Speed
19 Wild Hair
20 Wings/wing null
21 Bridle
22 Wing Opal
23 Horn
24 Saddle
25 Ear Tips
26 Head Piece

How many awesome combos and different looks you can put on any horse!

The other thing I want to mention is Starter DOS bundles!
Here is what it says on the wiki:
When breeding new starters together, it is important to remember that the hidden coats/traits may or may not drop in the first bundle or even the last bundle. You just never know!

Also starter can pass new traits as a hidden so the starter DOS can have the new awesome traits that became available in 6.01, so starters dont have to show it to throw it which is different than LEs.

Well I hope this has helped clear some things for everyone! I hope you all have a great day and happy breeding everyone! This is Ava over and out!

Lovely Lusitano!

Hello everyone! Hope everyone is enjoying a great start to your week! I wanted to show off some new stuff from the 6.01 horse update! Lets talk about our brand new starter set of horses the Lusitano!

There are 6 different colors of the lovely Lusitano!
Aurelian Lusitano
Alabaster Lusitano
Dark Bay Lusitano
Chiffon Lusitano
Russet Lusitano
Chestnut Lusitano

Amaretto Breedables all begin with the “Starter Coats” that are sold in starter, breeder and rancher packs at the Amaretto Horse stores. The Lusitanos are considered “Starter Coats”.

Lusitano were released in the 6.01 update.

They each come with possible hidden coats and traits. The hidden coats/traits may or may not be Non-Starter. When breeding new starters together, it is important to remember that the hidden coats/traits may or may not drop in the first bundle or even the last bundle. You just never know! Remember, once a starter always a starter.

The Lusitano DOES have the ability to pass!

You can always check them out on the Wiki here:
https://horse.amaretto.wiki/index.php?title=Lusitano

I really love the shading on these horses and wanted to tell you guys to watch out for these in your breedings! This is Ava over and out Happy Breeding!

Charmed Zebras!

Hey Everyone!

Today I wanted to talk about some awesome Charmed horses you can still receive from ANY random breeding of an Amaretto horse.

These are the Zebra Charmed!

They are totally amazing!

These horses do NOT pass their eyes or coat. But if you breed a Charmed Horse (whether it is with another Charmed Horse or any other horse) you DO have an increased chance at receiving another random Charmed Horse.

So good luck at getting one of these amazing horses!

Hugs, Marku <3

Amaretto Mythbusters!

As most of you know, I am always in the group either talking, answering questions or just watching whats going on with our breeders. I have seen recently some things said that made me feel the need for this connection today. I will be busting some myths today, you ready? Here goes…

  1. “My ticket was just closed with no response!” WRONG! We take the time to answer each and every ticket that is filed with our support. Some have emails that may send the responses to spam folder etc so they do not see our response, that is why it is important to go back into your tickets and check for responses.
  2. “I have never got anything good my whole breed time!” WRONG! We have the ability to see everyone’s horses, past and present, who they sold them to etc etc, so when people go into the group and complain, we know the truth! Just a heads up 🙂
  3. “Only people that Amaretto likes gets the good stuff!” WRONG! All traits are server generated, we do not sit all day, cause we have absolutely nothing to do all day, and pick and choose from our THOUSANDS of breeders, who gets what, the server picks and chooses and it doesn’t care who lol
  4. “The moderators are staff and they get special treatment!” WRONG! Our group mods are NOT Amaretto staff, they have no access to our private staff sim, servers etc etc. They help out in the groups and with events and that is all. They are breeders themselves, just like all of you, and have to breed and work at their projects just like any other breeder. (See number three ^^)
  5. “I did not know their was an update, I didn’t see any notices or anything!” WRONG! When important things happen, we spam the heck out of it! We do blogs, Facebook posts, Tweets, TONS of group notices etc etc. So when someone makes the above statement we can only assume they are not in any of our groups or on Facebook, or don’t have Twitter, which would not be a good thing as a breeder, so be proactive!! https://amarettobreedables.com/connection/?p=19341

I hope this helps to bust those myths and end some confusion for our breeders, I am sure I will be back to bust some more of those pesky myths soon!! Until next time, Happy Breeding!!

Be Proactive!!

With the update being out now for several weeks, and bundles dropping that are from none updated horses, I felt the need to write this blog as many have stated they “didn’t know”. We at Amaretto take the time EACH DAY to write notices, blogs, Facebook posts, Twitter, etc in order to keep our THOUSANDS of breeders informed. As breeders, you need to be proactive and keep yourself informed, it is very important so that you do not miss out on fixes, sales, and important happenings within the community and with your animals. I have posted all the links below to our Facebook, Twitter, Connection, Blog, and Social Network, as well as all the store locations which have a group joiner so you can be a part of our MANY groups. Just like you need to protect yourself from copy botters and scammers, you need to keep yourselves informed!!

Happy Breeding!!
