All About Racing Traits

Happy Hump Day Fellow Breeders

Recently, I have seen a few breeders asking about racing traits and thought it might be helpful to give some detail on how to tell if your horse is a racer, what the racing classes stand for and how to utilize these traits for maximum breeding fun!

Image result

When the version 3.5 Horse update came out on July 6, 2012, exciting new racing traits were hidden in new starters. You have a chance at the racing traits by breeding any horse with a starter horse or by breeding together two starter horses. Racing traits ARE passable. So, you can get racing traits by breeding horses that already have them, as well. When the racing traits pass they can pass as the same class, one class higher, one class lower or two class’s lower than the shown trait.

The racing traits consist of a Speed Class and a Stamina Class. Speed is the sprinting speed of a horse. Speed is ranked using the following class system:

  • S = 3x Avatar 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

Stamina is the amount of time a horse can sprint with recharging. Stamina is ranked by using the following class system:

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

You can, also, change/increase a horse’s speed and stamina class by training them. Experience or XP, is gained through training. 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

To race or train your horses, you need the racing HUD. To get the HUD, simply click on the horse for the Menu. Then click the Help button and select HUD to have an Amaretto Horse HUD sent to your Objects folder. Next add the HUD to your avatar. For racing or riding, you will pick up your horse into your inventory and add it to your avatar as well. Click the connect button on the HUD to connect your horse.

Find detailed instructions on how to use the HUD for racing and training here:
http://wiki.amarettobreedables.com/index.php?title=HUD_/_Racing

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

Amaretto even has a racetrack available for you to race anytime! Check it out here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Amaretto%20Ranch%20Haven/148/37/2489

Till next time…Happy Racing & Happy Breeding!

I really love the barnyard birds and today I’m going to take a look at the wing traits.

At the moment there are 12 wing traits, these are:

  • Wing Red Heart
  • Wing Pink Heart
  • Wing Purple Flower
  • Wing Teal Flower
  • Wing Rainbow
  • Wing Gold
  • Wing Cranberry Sauce
  • Wing Gravy
  • Wing A.R.U.
  • Wing Celebrate
  • Wing Spearmint
  • Wing Peppermint

The Wing trait was first introduced by breeding 2 2016 Wild Love Edition Barnyard Birds together!!

On April 29, 2016 until May 13, 2016 Amaretto wanted to celebrate all our Mothers, with Happy Mother’s Day 2016 Collectors Edition Barnyard Birds!

Any breeding of these Barnyard Birds gave you a chance at the new Wing Purple Flower or Wing Teal Flower!

On August 4th, 2016 until August 19th 2016 Amaretto celebrated Summer 2016 with 2016 Summer Edition – Hang Tens!

Any breeding of these 2016 Summer Edition – Hang Ten gave you the ability to get a brand new Gold or Rainbow Wing!

On Jan 27,2017 Amaretto celebrated ARU Graduates with this Wing A.R.U. that can pass from any 2017 A.R.U. Graduation Edition breeding!

On June 26, 2017 until July 19, 2017 Amaretto celebrated 4th of July with Celebrate Independence 2017 Barnyard Birds!

You could get a new Wing Celebrate from any breeding of these Celebrate Independence 2017 Barnyard Birds!

On December 2017 Amaretto celebrated Christmas with Mr. and Mrs. Amaretto Christmas Birds. If you breed these together you got a chance at getting a Spearmint or Peppermint Wing!

That was all from me today, happy breeding and see you in world.

National Rocky Road Day!!

Hey everyone hope your Saturday is going awesome!!

So in my surfing and browsing today I found out that it is NATIONAL ROCKY ROAD DAY!!

June 2nd is a day made for chocolate, marshmallows, and nuts. It’s National Rocky Road Day! In the United States, the most popular way to eat Rocky Road is in ice cream.

Although there are many variations, traditionally, Rocky Road ice cream was composed of chocolate ice cream, nuts, and marshmallows. Today, there are variations with vanilla ice cream, chocolate chips, and almonds.

People have been enjoying this delicious combination for many years. There are varying accounts of the origin of this ice cream, as there often are when a popular item invention comes along. Sometime during the late 1920s, William Dreyer used inspiration from his partner Joseph Edy’s chocolate candy to make rocky road ice cream. Dryer did something he was probably told a hundred times not to do. He used his wife’s sewing scissors to chop up marshmallows and walnuts and added them to chocolate ice cream. Of course, it tasted good, so he was probably forgiven for using her good sewing shears for anything but fabric!

Another who laid claim to the creation of rocky road ice cream was George Farren. He had simply blended a candy bar into chocolate ice cream creating the creamy dessert.

Soon after, the stock market crashed, and the ice cream was given the name Rocky Road to bring smiles to faces during the Great Depression.

Enjoy a bowl of Rocky Road Ice Cream, some Rocky Road candy, bars, cake or other Rocky Road dessert! Use #RockyRoadDay to post on social media.

 

 

Maybe you are feeling creative and want to design your own kind of Rocky Road – so whether it is a designer horse, k-9, bird or ponie here are some suggestions:
