Griderz Zwicky

A new discovery was made recently, a spacey fighting creature named Zwicky’s.  We are still trying to find out more, but here is some of the information we have discovered so far.  Griderz Luv presents a new all fun, no chore breedable which is currently in closed beta and soon to come into open beta, so keep an eye out for more info soon.  Info notecard below:

Welcome to a new dimension in SL™ Breedable creatures!

Not from this world…
Not from this galaxy…
Not from this universe…
Not from this dimension!

<— Griderz™ Zwicky Creature —>

Zwicky creatures are named after the galaxy ‘I Zwicky 18’ a dwarf irregular galaxy located about 59 million light years away. This is where they were discovered during trans-dimensional propulsion experiments made by Alien Grey scientists.

Zwicky creatures first arrived on earth on July 8, 1947, found in the engine room of a crashed extraterrestrial spacecraft by government officials from Roswell Army Air Field (RAAF) in Roswell, New Mexico, USA

They’ve been the study of United States scientists for the past 64 years and kept secret up until now. Human scientists have found that Alien Grey used Zwicky energy to supplement transdimensional propulsion output, thus the Zwicky discovered in the engine room were there for this reason. Zwicky aren’t harmed while being used for this purpose and actually enjoy the task and attention. Alien Grey supplied the Zwicky with plenty of their favorite food with the “Zwicky Orb” aka (Dark Matter Emitters) which process Plutonium (Pu 244) into dark matter.

Over the years Zwicky creatures have been found to be quite harmless and make great pets. They’re very playful, sociable, and love their owners!
Zwicky will gather among other Zwicky and create the (Zwicky Star) formation. It’s their way of bonding with the family. They also like to chatter with each other and people around them. They love to greet their owner with a “Whooo Hooooo!”…
Watch out for the Icky Zwicky Stink Ink! They think it’s funny to “Fart” and run!

Scientific findings:
Zwicky creatures exist slightly out of phase with our dimension. This allows them to pass effortlessly through all solid objects…

Zwicky creatures also have the ability to “Blink out” (Teleport) around their roaming area…

Since they originate outside our dimension they need to be fed dark matter to survive and the “Zwicky Orb” (Dark Matter Emitter) provides all their nutritional needs.

Breeding:
Zwicky creatures are ready to breed once they reach adult stage and become 100% horny (5-7 days). In Zwicky creatures, the males become pregnant.  Their mating involves the female passing her unfertilized eggs to the male during mating.  After completion the male gestates the young. In about 12 hours he will give birth to 1 baby! The baby will be born in stasis. A baby in stasis will never grow. The babies may be switched in and out of stasis before they reach approximately 4 hours of age. This will stop the growth process indefinitely. Once their age is over 4 hours they must be allowed to grow and cannot be put back into stasis! NOTE: The Zwicky birthing process is very hard on newborns and you may have a stillborn baby from time to time. Please be aware that not all births will be live ones!


Zwicky Starter Pack:

All starter packs come with four baby Zwicky creatures. These can be any of the five current breeds. You birth your babies by rezzing their saucers and touching them for the birthing menu. A blue dialog (Menu) will appear on touch and you will be given a choice of Birth Zwicky, Yes or No…
NOTE: Zwicky births are when all Zwicky babies are most vulnerable and should not be rushed. Carefully rezz each starter saucer and take your time birthing your new babies! If you try to rush the births, stillborns are more likely to happen! Region performance and lag can play a part in the death of your new babies! Once Zwicky are successfully birthed they’re very hardy creatures if kept well fed!
You may take them into your inventory to move them at any time without consequences. Just remember to feed any Zwicky that’s been released from stasis and do not leave them in your inventory for more than 7 days or they will die of starvation!

Meet your new babies!
The green, blue and red babies are your starter females.

The white/neutral baby is the male Zwicky! Zwicky males are rare. Make sure you take good care of him. You only get one in each starter pack! Males are the gender that gestates the young in the Zwicky species. They get pregnant and give birth to all your little Zwicky babies!

Current breeds available:
1. Galaxy Griderz (Rare Zwicky)
2. Nebula Griderz  (Rare Zwicky)
3. Orion Griderz (Rare Zwicky)
4. Solar Griderz (Rare Zwicky)
5. Lunar Griderz (Common Zwicky)
6. Aurora Griderz  (Common Zwicky)
7. Ejecta Riderz (Common Zwicky)
8. Flexus Riderz  (Common Zwicky)

Zwicky creature lifespan:
Do to the fact that Zwicky creatures live in two separate dimensions they have a rather short lifespan. Maximum age is 180 days. NOTE: This age can be extended by purchasing a Zwicky Life Extension Orb. DANGER! Zwicky creatures must be kept fed or they will die of starvation! Once their hunger reaches 100% their ability to survive in our dimension becomes impossible and antimatter annihilates them in a devastating explosion.

Zwicky Orb:
This is their food processor which turns Plutonium (Pu 244) into dark matter.
Plutonium (Pu 244) refill vessels are available to replenish your depleted Zwicky Orbs.
All Plutonium containers will automatically refill any Zwicky Orbs region wide. You only need one refill per region. When that’s depleted it will delete itself and you will need to rezz a new vessel before your Zwicky Orb becomes empty. Currently there are three sizes available, small (200), medium (400), and large (800). These are for sale at our main store or at one of our affiliate vendor locations.

The Twibbles Need You!

Twibbles are cute and possibly cuddly little aliens soon to crash on a sim near you.  Onyx Core and Galaxy Scientist are the Zobla team behind the upcoming Twibbles.  They will soon be going into a short closed beta before being released to the public.  Twibbles are based on the xs open scripts with some new twists included.  Twibble have stars, dots and stripes with some of these only being available in specials.  They give birth to cute little pods which grow into 6 prims of cuteness and you might find some more fun breedables added to Zobla in the future.

Come and visit the Twibbles

Join the inworld group so you don’t miss out on the Launch Party, there will a one off launch party special available and I’m sure it will be alot of fun too.   You will get to visit the site of the Twibbles crash landing for a personal introduction.  More on the Twibbles story can be found below….

Twibbles – The Story
————————————————————————————————————

The Twibbles are a newly discovered life-form, stumbled upon by explorer, Onyx Core. It is not known exactly where they originated from, but we have reason to believe that they are the last of their kind. Their language cannot be translated, nor their writings. The only way they can communicate with us is through art. Based on drawings created by the Twibbles, it seems as though that their home planet had been hit by a massive asteroid of some sort. After the planet was hit… only a hand full had survived. The planets atmosphere was quickly deteriorating. The only option was to evacuate the planet in one of their last remaining spacecraft. After leaving the planet, they proceeded to plot a course to the nearest habitable planet… ours. After setting the ships course, they put themselves into cryosleep and hoped for the best.

One day while exploring the edges of the nearby forest, Onyx Core came upon what appeared to be the wreckage of a spaceship. Carefully approaching the wreck, Onyx scanned the area for anything that might be threatening. There was no movement anywhere in sight, only the colorful smoke coming from the wreck. Onyx carefully inspected every inch of the wreck. He noticed a faint blue light coming from the inside of the ship. He decides to get a closer look.

Upon entering, Onyx finds a half dozen crates emitting the blue light. He picks up one of the crates and carries it outside. He wants to open it. But what if its something dangerous? Trekking through countless areas of dangerous terrain, coming face to face with some of the most ferocious animals this world has to offer. “Dangerous” is his middle name.

He carefully opens the crate so as not to terribly temper whatever may be inside. Laying inside is a creature unlike any other. It was the cutest thing he had ever seen. It was colorful with a striped and spotted like pattern. He was trying to keep quiet as it was still sleeping. Suddenly… it began to open its eyes.

When it woke to see Onyx… it didn’t move or make a sound. It just lie there staring at Onyx and studying him for awhile. Suddenly the creature slowly starts to smile. Onyx couldn’t help but smile back. He carefully picked it up from the crate and held the creature in his arms. He walked over and gently set it down on a nearby tree stump. Knowing the creature possibly wouldn’t understand, he held his hands up to signal the creature to stay put. He quickly rushed back to the ship to remove the other crates. Opening them carefully one by one he began to wake and greet the new creatures.

He began trying to communicate with them through hand gestures. He tried speaking to them. Nothing seemed to work. Then he remembered the paper and pencil he had packed in his bag. He pulled them out and proceeded to draw random shapes. The creatures began looking at each other as if this seems familiar to them. They began to approach Onyx. He handed over the pencil to the first one willing to take it. The creature began drawing. The illustrations seemed to form a story. A story of how they arrived here. Hours went by while they illustrated their journey. The sun was falling fast. Onyx stands up and looks at all of them, pondering what he might call his new discovery. “I’ll call you Twibbles!”, he said.  As the sun starts to fall, Onyx races to get them back inside the cramped space of the ship. Before leaving he says, “You all stay in here and I’ll be back by morning.” Onyx gathers his things and quickly darts off into the dark.

Onyx returned the next morning and over the course of the next couple of weeks, he continues to return to build the Twibbles a proper home. He wants to help them start a new life here. He observes them, their lifestyle. He starts to see new babies pop up. They multiply much faster than he thought.

Months later… their population has grown tremendously. Through Onyx… they’d learned how to use the materials surrounding them, and he in turn has been able to study more about their technology. The relationship couldn’t be any better. But this small forest is running out of room.

The Twibbles need new homes for their rapidly growing population. Together we can help them.

New Horse on the Horizon watch out for ABC

I had a very interesting interview a couple of days ago with Darcul Bellic and Stephanie Merrienboer, who along with Kawika Comet form the Awesome Breed Creations management team.  ABC will be bringing some healthy competition to the Horse market.  Intending to embrace the good and trash the bad of all things breedable, their forthcoming horse will be both breedable and able to be used for special activities.  These activities take the form of events which will suit the various breeds they will be bringing out.  Just to give you a hint the first breed of horse will be best suited to their Draft Pull event.

ABC's Warehouse

There will be 7 different events all together, including sulky and thoroughbred racing.  I love their method of introducing new traits into the bloodline and they are also going to require some patience to get the perfect horse, whether that be for racing or looks, but you are unlikely to have both.  Hrm yes I do realise I’m not telling you much.  Let’s wait till their is a demo inworld to look at in a couple of weeks and I might give away some more secrets then.

Oh here's a hint on the plan for dealing with horses you no longer want.

The Breeder Chronicles | New Scripts

In a past write up I was a bit harsh on the XS scripts and it garnered a few reply’s (and a 3 day discussion).  Well I am Glad to report there has been a fresh influx of new scripts that have the breedables doing amazing things.
The most impressive I have come across so far is the BioBreed dogs.  Not only do they breed and bark (make noises like the other breedables) they actual give the dogs an appearance of actual movement.  The raise their paws beautifully and really give the appearance of life like movement.  They also have commands that have them walk with you, come to you, and return home that the breeders are able to take advantage of in the form of dog races.

This is what has been needed in the breedables for some time.  It allows a new wave of animals to be created that are more than egg laying food eaters.  I envision a breed of something soon that will do way more than the usual neat tricks.  Who knows?  Maybe in the pipeline somewhere is a critter that will say actively seek a mutant gene to produce an entirely new race of creature on its own. Would love to see it.
Another thing I am seeing it more creativity in the breedables.  The animals are nice even the mythical are nice but give me a good old “HUH” creature any day.  Maybe one of the creators reading this will see it and be inspired to create little “blobs” that breed and eat the owners builds just like the blob did in the original B rated sci-fi movie.
Well, I’m off now to feed my Pugs and Bunnies.  Hope to see you around the barn yard

Welcoming Tigers to the Jungle

When I was a little girl I thought having a pet tiger would be awesome! As I grew older I learned how impractical that was and settled on a kitten, but NOW things have changed!

Welcome to the Jungle is announcing their first breedable release as the well known, but endangered, tiger!

second life Welcome to the Jungle Tiger

These majestic creatures are joining the breedables community and challenging the competition by taking breedables to the next level!

Interaction is one of the key points with the tigers, giving you something to actually DO with your pet rather than just make babies… which are OH SO CUTE by the way. Not only can you pet and ride your tiger but also play games with it (which raises its stats) such as playing ball together. Tigers are also interactive with each other, and some of the evolving future additions will include training of your pet. Dare I ask if it jumps through burning hoops? Let’s see your other breedables do that!

Second Life Welcome to the Jungle Tiger

Welcome to the Jungle’s main motivation for choosing tigers as their first breedable release is to promote awareness on just how endangered tigers are in the wild. ‘We want our grand-children’s grandchildren to still have them in the wild.’ 20% of tiger proceeds are sent directly to WWF for the preservation of the tigers’ natural habitat, and WWF donation stands are placed at each Welcome to the Jungle locations for 100% donations to WWF.

Tigers are now entering their ‘beta’ testing phase and are currently taking tester applications. Want to be a tester? Grab a landmark to one of the following locations to see the tiger demo:

Just click the demo tiger, and click the ‘join testing’ button that appears. You will automatically be sent a note card to fill out and return. While you are there, join their main group through the same method.

Get involved in awesome tiger cuteness and preservation, and I think Guns N’ Roses said it best, ‘Welcome to the Jungle‘.

Welcome to the Jungle!

Donations go to WWF

Have you been waiting for the Big Cats to arrive?  It seems they have.  I found a Welcome to the Jungle display at Herdy’s Auction Barn and Breedables.  By clicking on the Tiger you will receive information about joining their group, visiting the store, an application to become a beta tester or a slurl to visit the jungle.  There is also a donation vendor with all monies going towards the World Wildlife Fund.  I don’t have any other information at the moment but do suspect one of the team might be telling us a little more soon.  I can tell you they do make cool Tiger noises though.

Breedable Events | It’s All Happening!

Well it seems the US is waking from it’s hibernation due to the warmer weather and no doubt also due to the upheaval our world has been experiencing lately.  The Grid is springing with many great events.  Daniel Voyager has listed some of them, and I’m sure there are many more.  I know there is a cool Furry hunt on at the moment, Cover My Furry Butt Hunt!

You will find Petable at the Fantasy Faire, with a very cute special turtle in a lovely store they have set up there.  The Rovees have a Fairy Princess and Shining Knight that are very sweet also.  Matthew Anthony is named as a Sponsor for the Sim Petable can be found on, Exotic Worlds, although I suspect the whole company was the sponsor.  Great Job Petable!  There is an endless array of wonderful things to look at (and buy)  there, but make sure you stop at Petable first, before the lag kills you.

Petable at the Fantasy Faire 2011

Find Petable….

Project Fur has also began and you will find both Ozimals and KittyCatS supporting this event.  There are also a heap of other great vendors with lots of irresistible things to buy (well I thought so anyway).

Tancho Sanke Special

Ozimals have the Tancho Sanke special release Bunny.  While KittyCatS have 2 specials, one you will find at their main store, but you will find both available at the Project Fur sim.

 

Hope and Compassion Kittys

Ozimals and KittyCatS are next to each other at Project Fur.

And that’s just some of the current Event support breedables are involved with at the moment, not to mention the many breedables that have supported fundraising for Japan in many other various  ways recently.  I haven’t even started on the latest news, and releases that are/have currently happening.  I’m exhausted just thinking about it…..
