Your Elephants are live when you rezz the Elephant Male or Elephant Female object to the ground. It will take a few moments for the object to contact the servers and pull down the animals details. If you are unfamiliar with how to rez an item, all you have to do is drag your Elephants from your inventory to your land.
- For Elephants in crates, you need to right click on the crate, select “Open”, then copy the objects to your inventory. Find the folder containing your Elephant, then drag and drop it onto your land.
- For Elephants in sacks, left click on the sack, and select “Birth” from the menu that pops up.
These are the symbols you will see in the hover text over the Elephants you have birthed from their sacks. You will see these during specific times when they are eating Pet Food you can set them to Breed Food and Happy Food when they are 3 days old.
Major stat levels are indicated with a range of numbers from 1 and up. The one exception to this is the Hunger stat, which explained below.
♨ Hunger (the need for food)
☺ Happy (the need for Happy Treat)
Ω Age – The cumulative amount of days your Elephants has been alive since the time it was birthed from its sack or crate.
☪ Moxie – Moxie is our term for knowing if your animal is rezzed in Second Life. This is a way for us to know if our servers are able to maintain good communication with your Elephants. Moxie will accumulate each full day your Elephant is rezzed inworld. When you are breeding your Elephant, Moxie needs to be at 60 points or greater. Breeding will stall if Moxie drops below 60 points and will resume again once it has 60 points or more.
♨ Hunger – You should try to keep this stat at 0, all the time. Your Elephants will eat twice a day. It will start to go hungry increasing this stat by 10 points for every meal missed. This will change the hover text over your Elephant from white to yellow, giving you a visual clue that you need to check its food supply. If your Elephants is breeding, all breeding will stall until food is obtained and your Elephant eats enough portions to bring this stat back down to 0. Should your Elephant’s Hunger stat reach 100, it will become sick. This is indicated by the hover text above your Elephant turning from yellow to red. Once your Elephant is in the red, it won’t eat without extra help. To encourage it to eat again you will need a can of WKJar-of-Wellness-WKA. You have until the Hunger stat reaches 160 to restore your Elephant to better health. If your Elephant’s Hunger reaches 161, it will die. At this point, you won’t be able to get it back. It will be gone for good.
⚡ Sleep – This stat is simply a timer for when your Elephant needs to sleep. It serves as a visual for you to understand your Elephant better. Elephants sleep standing. Sleep has no effect on your Elephant’s breeding. This is a way for us to emulate a real Elephant’s natural behavior. When your Elephant is younger, it will be able to stay awake and remain more active than when it’s older. We’re sure that everyone can appreciate the need for a nap from time to time.
☺ Happy – This stat indicates how Happy your Elephant is. It will only become available when you turn breeding on for your Elephant.
♤ Heat – Heat indicates the increasing drive for a Elephant to mate with its partner. The stat will only become available when breeding is turned on for your Elephant.
♋ Pregnancy – Once a female Elephant (mare) has reached 100 Heat, it has the ability to have calves. When your Elephant is coupled to its partner and both Elephants are at 100 Heat, the female will become Pregnant. As long as your Elephant has a Moxie value of at least 60, and your Elephant hasn’t missed a meal, her Pregnancy will increase. When your mare reaches a Pregnancy of 100, the mated pair will give birth to their calves. Calves could range from a single birth to a very VERY rare set of twins.
FOOD ~ [Elephants Eat Twice A Day]
Your WKPet Food-WKA is distributed to your Elephant by what we call server side feeding. This process makes feeding your Elephant automatic and independent from Second Life. The food portions are housed on our server and can be found in your Wild Kajaera Inventory on the WK Portal Page. You can access your WK Inventory by logging onto your portal page, then clicking the “Items” button. By housing WK Pet Food on our servers it provides a true indicator for the amount of food portions you have, independent of Second Life lag, restarts, or any other SL specific issue. We advise you to check your portions often from the WK Portal Page.
Calfs – WKPet Food-WKA
Pet Food is what you need for Elephants (calfs) 0-2 days old or for the ones you aren’t breeding. All calfs 0-2 days old will not have the option to eat breeding food, so having WKPet Food-WKA on hand is vital. If you bought Elephants from our vendors, the crate will come with WKPet Food-WKA. Your Elephant’s hover text will turn from white to yellow if it misses a meal. If it misses 10 meals, the hover text will turn red. Once the hover text turns red, your Elephant is sick, and you will need a WKJar-of-Wellness-WKA to encourage it to eat again. For all WKPet Food-WKA that are rezzed inworld, on your land, you will receive a warning message, once the portions start running low. This reminds you that you need to add more food.
Breeding Food – WKBreeding Food-WKA
Breeding Food is what your Elephants will eat once they reach 3 days old, and you decide to turn breeding on. After starting your Elephant on breeding food, and it has a Happy level of at least 50, you will see Heat start to rise. Moxie will factor into this as well. Your Elephant has to have Moxie of 60 (or greater) for pregnancy to occur. Should you run out of Breeding Food during this time, the hover text will turn yellow once your Elephant misses a meal. If it misses 10 meals, the hover text will turn red indicating that its sick. If this happens, you will need a WKJar-of-Wellness-WKA to encourage it to eat again. For each Barrel of Breeding Food you have rezzed in world, on your land, you will receive a warning message once the portions start running low. This will remind you that you need to add more food.
Happy Treat – Happy Food
Happy Food is what raises your Elephant’s Happy level. WKHappy Food-WKA will feed all the Elephants you have breeding. Should you run out of Happy Food and your Elephant’s Happiness falls below 50 pregnancy will stall but will progress again once Happiness is restored. You will receive warning messages once you start to run low on Happy Food for all Elephants rezzed on your land.
