Big Cats Trait Count Update

We are preparing the first of the updates to the way the Traits are calculated to more accurately reflect the true percentage. This will give breeders a clearer picture of how their animal traits compare to the total grid count for that species.  You will see the rarity calculator and in world stats the .00 after the percentage this to help you see how rare things with similar percentage values differ.

We have changed the way the Teeth, Tail, Whiskers, GlowShine and Scale Traits are calculated. These traits are now calculated the same way as the Fur Eyes and Ears have been calculated for the last few years.  We do feel this will give a better understanding of the traits.

Halloween Animals

We have some very special animals for you this October.  Starting with our beloved Big Cats, we have a very special Tiger.  It is a Bengal with Bengal parents.

WK Ghost Cat

This cat comes with Random Sex, and some very exclusive furs the one you see is a Ghost and its parents are wearing the non Ghost version.  The Non Ghost version is called the Doppelganger.  Both of these furs will pass with a different nose. This is a brand new fur stripe pattern.  The Furs are exclusive meaning they will not come in randomly.  The DemonicGlow eye has been requested and what a more fitting way to introduce it then on the anniversary of the Demonic Eye release.

We have also given this cutie a set of Extra Long-Whiskers and a LongToothSNGLFan tooth.  We know many of you like the larger scale so we have made it extra Large but it will be very cute in any size. Jaed is looking forward to trying to get this on a baby scale.

For those Wild Dog breeders, we have a black ghost Gray Wolf that we are sure you will enjoy, so much so that we have given you a whole new fur strain for it. It has Ghost Parents and will produce more Ghost furs. It does come with a complete Let set and can have a chance of producing the larger scale animals as well. WK Ghost Wolf

Both of these animals are out at WKU wandering about or in either of the Big Cat or Wild Dog areas.

The Fun does not stop there as we have added the Little Varmints to our line and we could not forget about them.  We changed it up a bit and are offering you a very adorable Ferret with a Mink Fur that is exclusive. As well as the parents of this animal. The animal comes with a Limited Time Costume. The costume can be applied to any of the Little Varmints. It comes separate so you can apply it as if your getting them dressed up for the holiday.WK Ferret Halloween Costume

You can find these at the main stores. On sale till November 3rd.

October Tradition

Here at WK we have some very special traditions. Every October since we started we have done a random dropped Halloween Eye there have been various amounts of them through the early years, however, this is getting to be a lot of eyes for the season so we have scaled it back a bit this year.  We will have a new eye out each week in Big Cats and in Wild Dogs and it will run for 7 days.  As in previous years and with the reduction of Magical Flame Eyes on the grid we will have these eyes pass Magical Flame until our birthday celebration (January 28th), where at the magical flame will be turned off and they will be able to pass themselves.

For Little Varmints, we have not been able to get the graphic type eye to work so well with it being so small – however, we will continue to try various ideas.

Throughout this month, we have some very exciting things happening.  Stay tuned and we will let you know more about them.

Halloween Eys 2017

New Glow and Shine in BC

We are excited to announce that we will be releasing in the BIG CATS 2 new Glows and 1 new Shine versions.  The new version are Eclipse, Solar and Luster.  With the release of the new versions however we do need to remove current Moonlight and Sunlight and Glisten from the random drop.  They WILL continue to pass.  They have been around for a very long time so we are confident that they will continue to be found in the secondary market.

The new versions will come in at a higher levels than the older versions.  In order to qualify for Eclipse you need to have an offspring resulting at level 50 or higher, Luster is level 60 or higher and Solar at level 65.

Happy Breeding –

Clarification on how this passes – it starts with the random drop and the offspring must be the resulting level or higher.  There was a day we had a small issue where it did pass to levels not correctly. These have been corrected.

Once the animal has either the glow or the shine it passes up or down the levels.

Level only matters when there is no ancestral presence of the trait.

Food Update

I am sure you had heard someone say in group “My foods gone how do I get it back?” We had several helpers and CSRs say MOOG it. This is something we have been trying to track down and while it was impossible to reproduce we do think we found the cause.  The update should prevent a dish from going poof in the future if your sim runs out of URLs.  However you may still get the warning that the sim is out of URLs and it is a good indication that your sim needs a restart.  If you have food out that is an older version this is fine you may leave it as is the food will still be eaten. If however you rerezz said dish it will poof asking you to MOOG a current version.

Current Food version for all but the Happy Teddies in all animals is 2.7.3 in Happy Teddies it is 4.1.1

 

Xanda Lives On

You may have been sadden recently with the report of yet another one of these beautiful creatures being taken from the world. His father was magnificent a while he lived a full 13 years of life his son was not so lucky he lived only a short 6.

Xanda seems to have had a few fights in his time one at age 4 that took a large rip into his nose. Its healed but has left some fairly deep scars.

Xanda Lives On

 

Xanda will be available at the WKU and Crystal River Sims from today until August 9th.

Crystal River – http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Crystal%20River/129/138/40

Xanda’s Mother is never mentioned in any reports so we have created her name is Ekundayo – her fur is simply named Xander’s Mom this is a beautiful near white fur. Her name means sorrow to joy, we choose this in hopes that Xanda living on here in Second Life brings you joy.

Xanda’s Father of course is the Cecil CE that we released back in 2015.
