KittyCatS! Update V1.23
Hello KittyCatS! Community!!!
We have been working tirelessly on this update and are so so so excited for you to have it! We hope you will be excited too!!!
It has some very very cool new features that have been part of our plans for a LONG time *hmmm wonder what that could be?*
With each update we aim to improve your experience with your KittyCatS! while tending to any little bugs or fleas we may have encountered along the way!
So without any further introduction, let’s look at what is in this update!
Your KittyCatS! Team
NOTE: If this is your first time doing an update with KittyCatS! the process is very simple. Yes, you heard right, VERY simple. (At the bottom of this note are the simple steps on how to update) Also, you can watch our new simple tutorial online at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ZauiKZLEUQ
* KittyCatS! proudly presents – “What’s my name?”
You all may or may not know but… many kitties out there are having an identity crisis having the same name, “Kitten”. Now, while we LOVE that name, (as it’s the name of our lead CSR, Kitten Longmeadow) we know some KityCatS feel a bit unsure of who they are!
Now your newborn “kittens” will be born with a random name which you can either keep OR change! This will be helpful when looking for lost cats for you and us. Whether you keep the name it’s born with or not, one thing is for sure, there won’t be any cats having an identity crisis anymore! We will add to the name database, even take YOUR suggestions, but for now it’s pretty full, so we hope you enjoy this feature that will keep your cats from feeling upset when they wonder “why do so many cats have the same name as I do?”
This is really a fun new feature and we hope you enjoy it!
* KittyCatS! proudly presents – “Peek-A-Box” (we’re really excited about this!)
We are thrilled to provide this new feature for you which allows you to “peek” inside your box to see what your new kitten looks like!!! Boxes can be switched to 2 prim images of your cats AND back…. (they even blink!)
But WAIT, thats not all. The image does not only allow you to see a picture of your cat, but also its gender! *waits for everyone to get up off the ground* YES!!! Those who want to know, simply click “image” on your box and watch the magic happen! Those who do NOT wish to know, don’t worry, you can keep it a surprise too, just birth your box as you normally would!
In the coming days, both the pedigree and Cattery box storage system will be updated as well to show the gender for boxes there… so cats born in the cattery will automatically have gender displayed.
This feature allows for more flexibility in your KittyCatS! experience whether you are a casual breeder or one who sells their cats. Another thing we love about this new feature is, even if you keep your cats unbirthed for selling or breeding projects, you, your friends, and even customers can now “see” them!!! We imagine there will be some awesome displays with KittyCatS in this new “image” mode in catteries and markets alike! This feature can also be helpful when working on breeding programs to store your “boxes” for future use.
Additionally, KittyCatS HUD owners can switch all their boxes to images at one time and back again! As an added bonus the HUD now also allows to set the text options for all your boxes with one click! (updated HUDs are delivered free of charge during the update process)
So in summary: Boxes will continue to keep the gender a secret… Box Images in SHOW it!!!
We can’t wait to see how you all use this new feature, with the creativity our community has, we know we’re in for some fun surprises!
We’ve been so excited about this for long and are thrilled it’s now available!
* KittyCatS! proudly presents – “Display Mode”
This feature goes a little further with the low prim mode we already have. It gives you the option to display your cats 2 ways. One as a 2D Cat, one as an “image”, comparable to the new box images. Each way uses ONLY 2 prims. This can come in handy for your special projects, market & cattery set ups, or anything you wish. You find the option for this mode in the low prim section of the “Prims” submenu!
Note: Any clothes or accessories your cats are wearing will be automatically hidden in these new 2 prim modes.
* KittyCatS! proudly presents – “Will you marry me???”
We added the winning sentences to the cats from our “what should your cat’s say when you partner them” contest. They are now in this update!!! We hope you enjoy this new feature!
We think it’s funny and we hope the cats will too! LOL.
* Roll over animation!!! – too cute for words, you just gotta see it.
* Perma Pet name changes are now registered in the database.
* Boxes which you name and send to the cattery will now come back with that same name when brought to SL!
* Ball & Feather will not accumulate in inventory when detached. (this only works on sims on the RC channel. When the function is rolled out to the entire grid, it will work for all.)
* Changes made that overcome new LL limits to reduce inventory transfers between different prim modes.
* Some love gaining improvements made to help with sim rollbacks where possible.
* Clothes & accessory switching more reliable with hud.
* Petting movements in cats work properly.
* Work around for SL problem which caused white kittens to be born from boxes.
HOW TO UPDATE
In the coming 24 hours your cats will start to show an “UPDATE ME” tag.
As soon as they do, the UPDATE button will be available in your cats menu to obtain an updater.
As of that point, you have 2 weeks to update your cats.
Make sure you have at least 30 prims available when you run the updater.
EASY AS 1,2,3 updating steps:
1. Click the “UPDATE” button in the menu of your cat and it will give you an updater.
2. Rez the Updater
3. Click the “can of Update” and watch it as it updates all your cats and boxes! The updater will give KittyCatS HUD owners a new HUD as well.
No need to move cats, re rez them, group them, travel to sandboxes, pull your hair, or anything! It’s REALLY that easy. yay!
All settings for your cat will be kept, including the group. Only if you had a cat or box for sale, you will have to put them for sale again…
