Mission Statement

BioBreeds is a Second Life enterprise that is committed to bringing to the community innovative and groundbreaking breedable pets. Along with this we are introducing ecological and environmental adjuncts, and animations to enhance the user’s experience and change the ‘breedable’ landscape.
To achieve all this, we pledge to maintain a high level of customer service, giving our customers’ needs and wants top priority.
_________________________________________________

GENERAL INFORMATION:

ALL prims should show as BioBreeds Genesis as the creator.

Please remember if you have your land ‘set to group’ or ‘deeded to group’ to ensure that your dogs, puppy boxes and food are set to the same group.

Birthing a puppy box will take between 30 mins and 1 hour. DO NOT pick up your puppy box while it is in the birthing process.
If your box fails to birth after it has counted down to 00.00, please wait 5 minutes to allow for lag then pick it up into your inventory and re rezz. You can then start the birthing process again.
<<<IMPORTANT>>> DO NOT under any circumstances right click and Open the puppy box and ‘copy to inventory’. This WILL BREAK your puppy and you will lose it.

When you first rez your food bowl you will need to ‘Enable Pay’. To do this you touch the bowl, then select from the menu “ENABLE PAY”. You can then right click the food bowl and select “Pay” from the pie menu. You have a choice of purchase prices then which are equivalent to weeks of food for 1 dog. Example: 1 week / 2 weeks / 4 weeks / 6 weeks. You can obtain this information by touching the food bowl and selecting “INFO” from the drop down  menu.

Most of all, we want you to enjoy your breedables! Our staff is dedicated to quality customer service. If you have an issue or bug with your breedables please go to the website http://www.biobreeds.com and go to the support portal to submit a ticket. One of our Customer Service Representatives will get back to you as soon as possible.

When you have a dog on FOLLOW, do not cross a sim border as the dogs do not respond well to sim crossings. Please pick them up and re rezz them after you have crossed the sim border.

When you teleport you will need to pick up any dog you have on follow as they would be left behind.

When you walk off a prim (like down stairs or off a platform) your dog will remain at the height of that prim that it was rezzed on. You will need to pick up your dog and re rezz it on the new level you want it to be on.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

***BREEDING***
Mature and ready to start building fertility: Age 7
Days Pregnant: 72 hours
Days in Cooldown: 72 hours (FEMALES ONLY) Males do not have a cooldown.

Fertility % when they can start breeding: 80% fertility the female will seek out any male (according to the settings you have set for your own, group or any in the breeding menu) with a minimum of 80% fertility within 1m to mate with. Once she reaches 100% fertility her radius increases to 5m looking for a possible mate.
80% fertility = 1m radius
100% fertility = 5m radius
Range will increase as fertility increases from 1m (80%) till it reaches a maximum of 5m (100%)

It is always the female seeking out the males.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

***SICK DOGS***
You puppies/dogs will become sick if they get to 100% hunger. You will know they are sick as the hover text will turn red and will say at the top of the hover that it is sick. It takes approximately 50 hours for your dogs to get to from 0% hunger to 100% hunger.
e.g:
Sick
ZzZzZzZz
♀ Female ♀

Your puppies/dogs can heal themselves simply by giving them food. Once their hunger reaches 0% (within 30 mins of turning 0%) they will become well again. This takes approximately 32 hours to reach 0% from 100%.
(After release, we will be looking at offering the Medi Kits for sale in our stores and possibly on the SLMarketplace for those who do not want to wait for the hunger to decline naturally – watch the group notices for details on that after release)
