Creating a folder and why

Today I want to talk about why it is important to send your breedables in to us in folders with your name and ticket number on them when they need to be repaired.

First check out your own inventory, look in the objects category. I’m sure you have some items there. If you drop an item to someone, this is where the item usually goes. Now think about all the breedables that get sent to me everyday. If they are not sent in the folders like we requested, they may end up lost and in the trash. .

Now creating a folder is easy

1. right click (or command click if your using a mac) in either the My Inventory folder or another folder (like the Objects folder)

2. click New Folder then under the folder you clicked on a New Folder will be created and ready to rename with your name and ticket number.

3. Once you are done changing the name it will fall in order with the other folders and be ready to add your inventory to it.

4. After you have placed the horses / K-9s/ barnyard birds, bundles / kennels / nests and any additional information you can add for the ticket pull our name up in search and drag the folder over to us and we will get it (even if we are off-line!) and we will respond in your ticket if more information is needed or if no info is needed you will have your fixed breedable sent back in the folder that will say Amaretto Breedables from CSR NAME -REPAIRED

You do NOT need to send a note card separately or an instant message to the CSR. If you do instant message a CSR have your ticket ID on hand, we talk to so many people when you randomly message we have no idea who you are.

Happy Friday everyone! I hope everyone had a great week and that your breedables dropped something amazing for you!
I want to talk today about what permissions on your breedables should be. When selling your horse, K-9 or Barnyard Bird all you need to do is click the sale box and insert the price. No other permissions need to be changed. This also applies to zero sales or transferring your horse to a friend so they may ride it. If you are using the Firestorm viewer you will have to set the permissions to original because the default is copy.
If you do buy a breedable and receive a folder containing the contents of the breedable, this means that someone changed those permissions and you will need to file a ticket with us to have your breedable repaired.
This is another good thing to be sure you check when purchasing breedables. Always make sure you check who you are buying from and if the permissions are set properly. I hope this helps prevent some of the issues with permissions. Until next time, Happy Breeding everyone!

Breedable Costume Contest!

Hello everyone its Tmzasz here and I am just wanting to talk a tiny bit about the upcoming Breedable Costume Contest on the 25th of January! First off this isn’t your normal run of the mill costume contest as your not in the costume your Breedables are!!! Now for this to happen naturally you have to set your Breedable to be standing still so it won’t wonder off without its costume.  Notecards for entries are due in by the 20th so make sure that you send in your entry to Avalon Crystal or Maleficent Farshore. This notecard needs to be Amaretto Breedable Costume Contest and inside you need to put your Name, the name of the Breedable, can send a picture in it as well but this is optional. Now I cant wait to see all these fantastic entries and how awesome their costumes will be!!

A few things……….

Happy Monday everyone! I hope all you guys are doing well, and breeding some awesome horses, k-9s, or chickens!

I wanted to put a few rumors to rest!
I know who in the world would start rumors right? I dunno but never fear Ava is here to lay out the truth!

Amaretto is currently working and will continue to work on expanding to InWorldz! I have heard some people asking and wondering if we would not pursue InWorldz but this is a false statement!

In fact I was just over there today holding a questions and answers! Amaretto is working on getting our horses on the InWorldz grid!
Just a reminder guys you still have lots of time left to get the Mystique Show Horse or the Best in Show Mystique K-9!

Also, watch out for the Linden Labs maintenance tomorrow and check the grid status page! This is Ava over and out!

On The Set Of The New Talk Show… Dakota!

Oh boy, let me tell you, I am super excited to be able to brag to you today about Dakota! Well, not just our very own Miss Dakota but her new show “Dakota” coming to Second Life very soon! I was taking a walk around Boomtown and snuck in the new set of the show and I was amazed! It is an awesome looking set. It’s definitely going to be a show to watch! We will be filming the shows and putting them on the social network for all to see! From interviewing members of the community to Amaretto staff members. Miss Dakota is going to be the talk of the town! Want in on the action?? Well, we are asking you, the community, to help us come up with show ideas!

I can see it now…  “In the case of the 6 day old Shetland…. Mr. Clydesdale, you are NOT the father!” As Mrs. Mustang gets up running off the stage! LOL!! Gotta love those day time talk shows! However, Dakota is going to be so much more then horse paternity drama! Hahaha! This show is going to be fun, informative, and interesting. We all know Miss Dakota… I’m sure she will have us all laughing until our poor tummies hurt!

So, if any one has any suggestions or ideas for show topics, please send a notecard to Miss Dakota Delicioso.

I have included a few pictures that I took when I was sneaking around the set of Dakota! It’s amazing!

My Breedable is HUNGRY !!!!

I have been seeing a lot of tickets with hunger issues, and not eating breedables.


First off here is a chart you can remember as to how many breedable foods you can go through with x amount of breedables


1 Breedable~ 1 food/4 weeks

2 Breedable ~ 1 food/2 weeks

4 Breedable ~ 1 food/7 days

7 Breedable ~ 1 food/4 days

8 Breedable ~ 2 food/7 days

14 Breedable ~ 1 food/2 days

28 Breedable ~ 1 food/day

56 Breedable ~ 2 food/day

84 Breedable ~ 3 food/day

112 Breedable ~ 4 food/day


Two of the most important consumables:


Breedable & Pet Food :


Breeder Food- Is for horses / k-9s / birds that you wish to breed once they reach 7 days old.


Pet Food- Is to be used when you do not wish to breed your horses /k-9’s /birds. If you decide to breed them after feeding them Pet Food, it will take 7 days on Breeder Food for the effects of the Pet Food to wear off.


Using Food:


1. Rez the food/water within your breedables set range. (A breedable’s default range is 5 meters)

2. Can click the food/water to change options and see remaining %. Options include Owner only, Group only, and All.


A.Owner only: Will only be consumed by the owners breedable.


B.Group only: Will only be consumed by breedables in the same group as the food/water is set to.


C.All: Any breedable within range of the food/water will be able to consume it.


Once the food/water has been completely consumed it will disappear.


In case your breedable get hungry:


1. Re-rez fixes 99% of the issues.

2. If the land is set to a group, are the breedables and food set to that group? Some sims have it set that no scripts can run unless they are set to the right group as the land.

3. If the land isn’t set to a group, are the breedables and food set to the same group as each other? So often the food is in one group and the breedable in another. The food is set to feed only those in the same group and before you know it you have sick breedables

4. Check to see if the breedable is set to the type of food out (more stats)

5. Re-set home position.

6. Sometimes giving them a Horsey Snack for horses, K-9 Treat for K-9s, will help them start to eat so you may also want to try this. Remember your breedables only eat once every 43 minutes so you may not notice a change immediately, be patient it takes 3 days for a breedable to reach 100% hunger.


If your breedable still doesn’t eat after trying this, you will need to file a support ticket. Please include a location URL, so that we can come out and see them, in world. Please make sure that we have permission to come on the land.


Remember if you put a breedable in your inventory it will get hungry.


Your Breedable will eat once every hour. If food is not present their hunger and thirst will rise until it reaches 100% at which time they will get sick, this will take 3 days


A Healing Kit for horses, Vaccination for K-9s and Flu Shot for Birds can be used to Heal your Breedable or they will eat their way out of sickness, horses and k-9s in approximately 3 days and barnyard birds take 4 days


To use a Healing kit / vaccination/ flu shot, simply rezz the item nearby your sick horse/ K-9,/bird click your breedable select consumables and select Healing Kit/ Vaccination/ Flu Shot Before your eyes your Breedable will go from green back to perfect health.

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you all had a great time at the Pirate/Trivia event this morning, it was lots of fun!

Helpful Tips on Tickets

Happy Wednesday Everyone ! Today I would like to talk about tickets. First if you are having any problems with your breedables please do file a ticket or if you have any suggestions or concerns.

Please remember when you file a ticket that you check the ticket frequently for a response from the CSR. Please do as they ask you in the ticket so that your ticket goes smoothly and quickly. We ask that you please do not IM the CRSs as their top priority is to get your horses, k-9s and barnyard birds back to you as quickly as possible.

When sending a horse, bundle, K-9, kennel, barnyard bird, and/or nest; we ask you to please put them in a folder with your FULL SL name and ticket number. This is Very important so CSRs will know who the item(s) belong to. If you send in a folder without your name and ticket number or if you just send in the breedable not in a folder, it is very possible your breedable could be lost in the CSR’s inventory or even possibly deleted if the CSR does not know who it belongs to. Which in turn can lead to your ticket being delayed or closed.

If any information such as parental information or transaction history is requested by the CSR, you MUST post that information inside the ticket itself. Do not send this information to the CSR via note card or IM. This will only delay your ticket.

Here is the link for the Ticket System Website
For more information on filing tickets please check out this video, it’s very helpful!

With all this said Happy Breeding Everyone!
