Suggestions and Ideas

Did you ever think to yourself, “I have so many good ideas for Amaretto breedables”, and wonder who to tell? You can tell Amaretto staff! Just put your ideas on a notecard and drop it in the mailbox at any Amaretto food store. Of course, if it gets used it may not happen for awhile, because they have so many ideas of their own.

And now for the ultimate suggestion. You can turn in your own idea for a designer LE!! That’s right, Amaretto is again having the Breeder Designer LE contest, where a breeder is the creator of a brand new LE. You can turn in an idea, or even create a picture of one using gimp, photoshop, paint, etc. It has to be an original idea, not a picture from the internet, musn’t break SL TOS, must not be Trademarked or Copyrighted designs, must be within good taste and not offensive, and you are only allowed to submit one design per avatar, only designs from active breeders will be accepted, no alts please. The design has to use a current horse shape that Amaretto has, so no 6 legged horses lol. You have the rest of November to think of a great idea and turn it in on this site, and voting will begin in December https://amarettobreedables.com/forums/29/submit-your-limited-edition-designs-here

Last year’s winner was our own Blush Topaz with her amazing Asian Steampunk design. From her ideas they created two awesome Steampunk LEs that gave the eyes, Midori and Mandarin,and brand new saddles, Jin se and Hong se!

So gather all those ideas and suggestions you’ve had all year long and go to the website. Maybe this year the winner could be YOU!

FOTW Malaysia!

Hello everyone we made it all the way to Thursday! Today I wanted to share with you the brand new Flags of the World eyes for November!! FOTW Malaysia!

The Flags Of the World Eyes are one set of many exciting possible Non-Starter eyes that can come from breeding any coat. You can have a chance at one of these exciting Non-Starter eyes as they are randomly dropped into bundles, kennels, and nests at the time they bundle drop. These eyes CAN be passed on.

Good luck on getting this month’s gorgeous eye! If you need more information…You can see all the Flags of The World Eyes here:

Bundles, Bundles, and more Bundles!

If there is any interference (with Second Life, the Amaretto Server, lag etc.) when the mother goes to drop her bundle/kennel she will go into recovery but the bundle/kennel will not automatically drop. The mother will try to contact the server again and if all the conditions are favorable the bundle/kennel will then drop. Depending on the issues stated this may take some time so just be patient. As stated in the notecard horses/k-9s will not birth more than one viable bundle/kennel within a 3 day period. Please give a few hours if she doesn’t drop before filing a ticket.

Here is a breakdown of what your Bundles/kennels can say, and what it means

“NEVER_RECEIVED_MOTHER_COMMUNICATION”

Didn’t receive the message from the mother. The mother will have a second bundle/kennel if this occurs; the current bundle/kennel is a dud. Wait a few hours before filing a ticket with these, it might not be necessary.

“Connecting…”

Typically unseen, this is what happens when the horse/k-9 receives a message from the mother in its description.”ATTEMPTING_RECONNECTION”

“DUPLICATED_UNBIRTHED”

Means that somehow two copies of the same bundle/kennel existed in world. File a ticket and we can fix it.

“MOTHER_HAD_SECOND_BUNDLE_IN_THREE_DAYS”

“MOTHER_HAD_SECOND_KENNEL_IN_THREE_DAYS”

If for any reason a mother horse already had a bundle/kennel in the past 3 days, this prevents it from occurring. We log these issues server side with the parental information, if you can’t find the mother’s bundle/kennel, file a ticket and we can try to find it.

“ALREADY_BIRTHED”

Rare, horse already birthed from bundle/kennel

“DUPLICATED_BIRTHED”

Rare, horse/k-9 already birthed from bundle/kennel

“SUCCESSFUL_KENNEL”

“SUCCESSFUL_BUNDLE”

Ready to be named or birthed

For any of the above errors that requires a ticket, you can file one here http://support.amarettobreedables.com/index.php

I hope this helps clear up some confusion when a bundle/kennel error happens!

Happy Breeding!! Until next time…………

I Lost My Horse in My Inventory

Help! I picked up my Amaretto and I can’t find it in my inventory! I can’t remember what I named it so how do I look?

Those of you who are OCD will understand this, I am a bit like that with my breedables. I firmly believe in the power of folders in Second Life. Folders, sub-folders, sub-sub-folders, and so on. I have my inventory organized alphabetically, with a folder just for Amaretto Breedables, then one for the different breeds, then coats, eyes, wings, saddles etc.,also the foods, and other consumables, the updaters, landmarks to stores. Do you see what I mean about OCD? LOL Inside the eye folder are more folders for the kinds of eyes-albino,confection, awareness, reptile, etc. Inside THOSE folders, are more with the kind of coat that has each eye.

only a small portion of my folders

Something that makes it easier to sort them is always naming a bundle before you pick it up, so it goes to your objects folder with the info you need to sort it, the coat, eye, extra traits and gender maybe. When that builds up to a certain number I take some time to transfer those to the Amaretto folder. The same thing happens when birthing a bundle or updating. They go to my objects folder, then get put in the Amaretto folder so if I have to pick them up again, they go back to it, making them much easier to find in my inventory even if I don’t remember the name.

It may seem like a lot more work for those that have a lot of breedables, but in the long run it helps you and makes rezzing and re-rezzing a lot easier and less stressful. This method works for me, but it’s up to individual breeders to find what works for them. Happy Breeding

Coming soon!

Hey everyone let me say Happy Halloween! I hope everyone had a great day and a safe night. I am gonna keep this one short and sweet check out whats going on in the month of November!

Amaretto is always hosting some fun events for everyone to attend I hope to see you there! Happy breeding everyone this is Ava over and out!
