Don’t forget the Socks!

Happy Saturday everyone I hope your weekend is off to a great start.

Today we are going to shine the spotlight on our Horses and the Sock trait.

The Sock trait was introduced with the Limited Edition 2013 Valentine Horses that were on sale from February 7, 2013 through February 22, 2013.

On February 7, 2013 a twist to the Limited Edition 2013 Valentine Horses was announced. If you breed a Limited Edition 2013 Valentine Horses with a Limited Edition 2013 Valentine Horses you will have the ability to get a new trait called Socks.

From October 1, 2013 through October 9, 2013 the Limited Edition 2013 Fall Horses were on sale. By breeding these Limited Editions with any other horse you had the chance at getting 1 of 4 new Sock colors, Black, White, Green or Rainbow.

Spring Editions were available from March 20th, 2018 to Tuesday April 3, 2018! Hiding inside these Spring Editions was the Daisy & Plumeria Sock!

Please note that socks are an alternative to hoof traits so you may only have one or the other on a horse.

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.

The Sock trait CAN be passed on.

For a closer look at socks check them out on the wiki at https://horse.amaretto.wiki/index.php?title=Socks

Until next time this is Snookie hoping you have a great weekend!

Happy Breeding!!

GREAT DANES

The Great Dane is a domestic dog known for its giant size. The record holder for the tallest dog ever is a Great Dane called Zeus who measured 44 inches from paw to shoulder. In the middle of the 16th century, the nobility in many countries of Europe imported strong, long-legged dogs from England, which were descended from crossbreeds between English Mastiffs and Irish Wolfhounds. These dogs were called Englische Docke or Englische Tocke – later written and spelled: Dogge – or Englischer Hund in Germany. The name simply meant “English dog”. These dogs were bred in the courts of German nobility, independent of the English methods, since the start of the 17th century. The dogs were used for hunting boar, bear, and deer at princely courts, with the favorites staying at night in the bedchambers of their lords.

In 1878, a committee was formed in Berlin which changed the name of the “Englische Dogge” (English mastiff derivatives) to “Deutsche Dogge” (German mastiff), this being the Great Dane. This laid the foundations from which the breed was developed.
The Great Dane’s large and imposing appearance belies its friendly nature. They are known for seeking physical affection with their owners, and the breed is often referred to as a “gentle giant” They are a smooth coated dog with a regal bearing with short floppy ears, which are usually cropped. This was due to the practice of keeping the ears short when they hunted. The practice is common in the United States for show dogs, but in some European countries the practice is banned.

On April 23, 2012 Amaretto released the K-9 Update Version 1.4 and Great Danes were one of the Non-Starter Coats added. You could have a chance at one of the four colors of Great Danes by breeding any K-9 with a starter K-9 or by breeding together two starter K-9s. The coat can be passed. One of the cute dog animations is the way the Dane lies in a regal reclining position with forelegs crossed, like this Christmas SE.

In addition to the four colors shown here, real Great Danes also come in several other colors including blue- the colour is a pure steel blue, and merle.

I hope you enjoy breeding these lovely, graceful looking dogs.

3.01 Fix!

Hey guys I know how much you like updating soooo………… lets do it again! Please read the notes below carefully!

AFTER FEBRUARY 21, 2020 WE WILL NO LONGER PROVIDE SUPPORT FOR K-9s THAT ARE NOT v3.01

K-9s MUST BE UPDATED TO V3.01 TO FUNCTION PROPERLY!

Q: What do you mean by “not function properly”?
A: ALL versions that are not v3.01 will no longer produce viable offspring. Meaning any kennel produced by all versions that are not v3.01 will have the text BAD_DATA_NO_PARENTS, or EXPIRED_BREEDING, will not birth and CANNOT BE FIXED.

***So PLEASE update your K-9s before FEBRUARY 21, 2020

Update v3.01 Fixes:

Fixes:

  1. v3.0 Starters not recognizing food type (Starters include: Packs, Gachas, Paradise Puppies)

IF USING THE SINGLE UPDATER, PLEASE MAKE SURE K-9S SET TO PET FOOD BEFORE ARE RESET TO PET FOOD AFTER UPDATING

Somethings you need to know about the updater:

  1. It will not work if there is more than one updater out. It gives you a message that there are 2 updaters out please remove one. If you continue to try and update your K-9 It will give you another error message and have you pick one updater up and reset the other. (touch and wait 5 seconds to reset)
  2. It will not update pregnant K-9s. The reason being the updater can potentially abort the pregnancy. Waiting to update your pregnant K-9s will not effect the K-9s functions, they will continue to eat, move, animate etc. When they give birth to the kennel, then you can update them. The kennel will be the old version and need to be updated when birthed.
  3. The updater will not work on sims with a high load. Dilation needs to be above .65 and region fps must be above 25 for the updater to work. You will get an error message that says the sim dilation is too low, we have enclosed a sim monitor that will display these values for you. Just rez on your sim next to the updater.

Update Instructions:

Single Updater: Place the updater near the K-9 that isn’t updated and click the K-9 and click the update button. The K-9 will be updated and the settings will be the same as before the update process. DO NOT PICK UP K-9s OR THE UPDATER UNTIL IT HAS COMPLETED THE UPDATE PROCESS

Bulk Updater: Place the bulk updater in the middle of your K-9 breeding area, click the updater and adjust the settings you want your K-9s to be set to after the update process, then click the update K-9s button on the updater menu. This updater has the ability to update all K-9s that are not v3.01 in an entire region. However, depending on sim performance it may only do the K-9s in a 96 meter radius. Do not remove the updater until it has completed updating all K-9s and the hover text above the updater reads FINISHED. DO NOT PICK UP K-9s OR THE UPDATER UNTIL IT HAS COMPLETED THE UPDATE PROCESS

Updaters can be found at all K-9 locations listen on the location page:

If you have any questions or need help please file a ticket!

Amaretto Horseshoe?

Happy Thursday Fellow Breeders!

Horseshoe? This horseshoe is not on the horse’s hoof or even the shoe branding. It is a little known component of the Amaretto horses that you rarely see (although there was a breeder who had one last week). What I’m referring to is a horseshoe that may appear over your horse’s head. What does this mean? Should you file a ticket when it happens?

There is no secret or special meaning behind the horseshoe and there is nothing wrong with your horse if one pops up. It has absolutely nothing to do with breeding, connecting to the server, or the version of your horse. The horseshoe is there for one reason only and that is to preload the horses’ animations. Every horse has a horseshoe for this purpose

This is what it looks like.

Once your horse moves on to its next animation the horseshoe disappears. If it doesn’t, all you need to do is change your horse’s setting to physical and it will disappear. Therefore, no ticket needs to be filed.

Now you know about the horseshoe! Keeping you informed is the goal of Amaretto, as knowledge enhances your breeding experience.

Until next time…HAPPY BREEDING! 🐴

Manes and Tails!!

Happy February everyone!!

Today I want to spotlight the different Mane & Tail traits for our horses!

Let’s talk about the Mane trait first. The Mane trait comes from breeding “Starter Coats” together or one starter with any other horse. Please note that the Mane trait CAN be passed on.

Now let’s check out the Tail trait. The Tail trait comes from breeding “Starter Coats” together or one starter with any other horse. Please note that the Tail trait CAN be passed on.

The Roach Mane and Pinned Tail came out with Version 5.0 on September 3, 2014.

For a better look at these traits check them out on the wiki https://horse.amaretto.wiki/index.php?title=Mane_%26_Tail

With the 3.5 update the Wild Hair trait was added!! This trait provides the ability for a horse to acquire the mane/tail from other horses. This trait is like other hidden traits in that whichever one your horse has is the one that it can pass. The Wild Hair trait comes from breeding “Starter Coats” together or one starter with any other horse and the Wild Hair trait CAN be passed on!

If you would like to see some of the Wild Hairs that the community has shared you can check them out here. https://www.theamarettofamily.com/forums/wild-hairs.39/ You can also share a photo of yours if you don’t see it there!

Till next time this is Snookie hoping you have a great weekend and a terrific Saturday!

Happy Breeding!!
