Snuffles Breedables

Snuffles are breedables animals that drop crafting ingredients.
Players come and collect materials Snuffles drop and while doing that they help to add to your sim traffic

Preparing for your New Snuffle

Before you can bring a new Snuffle home you must prepare your land for them. There are only a few things to do but they are important steps.


1. Buy a tree or stump ( sometimes referred to as a nest).

You can find them at our Marketplace store here

https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/77098

2. Stock up on seeds.

You can get these from market place or in-world. If you buy them from Marketplace you will need to rez the box on the ground and click it -

the seeds will then go to your tree. If you buy them from the in-world seed exchange the seeds will go to your tree on their own.

Be sure to get your tree first and rez it!

3. You will need a small supply of crystals. You can get these at our Marketplace store also.

4. Make sure you have enough prim allowance to cover the amount of Snuffles you intend to have.

They have a land impact of 15 each due to the ability to rez materials.

5. Finally, be aware that your Snuffles will show on our Snuffles materials collections resource list.

If you do not want them to, please contact staff to have your tree set as private.


Buying a New Snuffle

The current system for buying Snuffles means they must be bought through your Snuffle tree/stump. To do this,

you will need to have Lindens in your Goldtokens account. When you have enough to cover the Snuffle cost, go to  the 

http://www.snufflesbreedables.net/

website and log in. You can search the Snuffles breeders profile pages for listed Snuffles and copy the ID number for the desired Snuffle.

Make sure you have enough prim allowance on your land to allow for each Snuffle you are buying. You will also need to have a supply of crystals.

These can be found here.

Also be sure to set your tree to primary through its menu.

When you are ready with the ID number, bring up the menu on your tree and choose the buy Snuffle option. Type in the ID number and send. Your new Snuffle

will arrive in the vicinity of the tree shortly.

Please note that while a Snuffle can be marked for sale in-world, you cannot buy it directly from the seller in-world. You must go through the tree menu as described above.


Avoiding Lost Snuffles

Snuffle movement is controlled through path-finding technology. When path-finding is enabled they will move freely around

according to the limits you set through each Snuffle. The menu gives you the option to set their home space , to freeze them

in one spot, and range - which lets you set the distance for how far they can roam around. The menu also has a button named

path-finding. Clicking this option disables or enables your path-finding settings.


It is suggested that Snuffles not be kept on a platform unless they have been frozen or path-finding has been disabled. The reason

for this is that they sometimes escape the confines of a set roam range and are most likely to wander over the edge of the platform

and become lost. Recall doesn't always bring them back, especially if they have fallen outside of the range of the stump or tree.

Sometimes a new burrow arriving at your stump may rez below the level of the platform and could also become lost anywhere between

your platform and the ground below. And finally, the Snuffles produce materials that rez in the general area of where they are.Sometimes

that area is off the edges of the platform and can be hard to retrieve in the limited time available.


If a Snuffle - either burrowed or alive - becomes lost and recall doesn't find it, be sure to search inventory in case it has been sent back

to you and also use area search. Another method to search is to look at your mini map. Your items will be displayed there as a blue spot.

Camming below the level of your platform will help in spotting any areas of blue that may be your Snuffle.

. In worst case scenarios where you simply cannot find the lost Snuffle contact a staff member for further assistance.

Save Seeds - Prevent Starvation

While the cost of seeds for your Snuffle is cheap, it makes no sense to feed them when there is a way to save those seeds.

Re-burrowing a Snuffle would work but it takes time - especially if you have a lot of them rezzed. It can also be expensive in the

cost of crystals. A simple trick to avoid those costs and be quick at it is to pick them up alive. If you click each one and hold ctrl+edit

as you select them you can then pick up all at one time and rez all when ready again to rez them by dragging the one box back out

again. Storing your Snuffles alive wont hurt them, wont reset them back to zero days old, wont interfere with any that are ready to mate,

and most importantly, they don't eat in there.


You can pick them up when you are planning to log out for awhile or simply only rez them when you're ready to collect materials.


This trick is important for another reason though. SL can be glitchy - servers go down. Snuffles technology is split between in-world

and on our server. If our server goes down, the snuffles in-world code tells them to keep eating. The seed resources on your account

are kept on the server. This would cause your Snuffles to starve - even though your account has plenty of seeds. Picking them up when

you become aware of a down server will save frustration, costs of seeds, and headaches.


Speed-Dating with Snuffles

For your Snuffles to breed you will need 2 Snuffles that are compatible for breeding. You can use the Snuffles profile on the website to

check if they are compatible. They won't be able to breed until they are 100 days old each. If left at 1x they will take approximately 5 days

to reach breeding age of 100


You can speed this process up by running the Snuffles at 5x. This will cause them to be ready in 24 hours. Using a multiplier higher than 5x is

pointless as it wont speed up the aging process any more than the 24 hours.You will know your Snuffles are ready to breed when a blue or pink

heart comes from them. Burrowing a Snuffles when the heart is emitting will set it back to zero age and it will have to age to 100 all over again.

Picking up a Snuffle at breed-able age live to put in inventory will pause the aging and not harm the breeding ability. You can rez them later and they

will be ready still.
