FAQ



Q. My plantpet tells me that it has a baby ready to be delivered. I typed the chat command it told me to type and nothing happens. What to do?

A. You need to copy & paste the chat command within 30s after touching the pot of your plantpet. Please copy & paste the command without the double quotes. Your plantpet will listen to your command only for 30s and then it will go idle. We recommend that you don’t manually type the chat command but copy it from the chat instead. The format of the command is:

give baby

for the up to date plantpets or

plantpet_name give baby

for plantpets which haven't been updated to version 2.0s build 6.

If you need to use the second command (for plantpets which are not updated) please be aware that some plantpets may have double (or more) spaces between the words forming their names. Your SL viewer may collapse any double spaces in a chat message to a single space. In those cases please first change the name of your plantpet to a simpler one-word name (either manually or with the menu) and then retrieve your baby plantpet.



Q. Why the health of my plantpet stays at 0%?

A. If the moisture of a plantpet is below 10% or above 90% and the happiness is below 40% at the same time then the health of the plantpet will decrease or stay at 0% if it has reached 0%. Each plantpet can recover its health if its happiness is above 80% and its moisture is between 10% and 90%.



Q. My plantpet is unhealthy/unhappy. What to do?

A. To make your plant healthy you need to make sure it stays happy for a long period of time. If it has been unhealthy for a long period of time it will need to stay happy even longer to recover its health. So, how to keep it happy... you can do the following:
1. while you are around the plant set it at very fast speed and make sure it is always watered above 10% and below 90%.
2. before u go away or offline water the plant to 100% and leave it at RL speed.

The happiness of a plantpet can be seen by pressing the Full Stats menu button.



Q. How much does it cost to take care for a plantpet?

Taking care for plantpets is free. They need only water to be happy and healthy and they are watered simply by pressing a menu button. If left dry for long period of time they can die but then they can be reset free of charge and grow again. When taken to inventory a plantpet gets paused, i.e. its parameters do not change.

Plantpets are breedable and breeding them can be free of charge. Each plantpet can give one baby seeds every 52 days if kept at least 50% happy and 50% healthy. However, if either their happiness or their health is below 50% then they stop counting down the days to baby until both their happiness and their health become again at least 50%.



Q. How many prims is a plantpet?

A. All plantpets have a pot which consists of 2-5 permanent prims. All plant parts are actually temp rezzed by the pot. Temp rezzed prims will appear as prims owned by you on your land but they do not get subtracted from prims allowed on your land. However, not every landlord understands this. Please check with your landlord if they are happy with you having plantpets before you make a purchase.

There is also a limit on the number of temporary prims you can have on your land. This limit is determined by the formula found in the SL wiki at http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/PRIM_TEMP_ON_REZ.



Q. I get a message that my plantpet cannot rez because my sim is full. There are plenty of prims available in my sim. What's wrong?

A. All plantpets have a pot which consists of 2-5 permanent prims. All plant parts are actually temporary prims rezzed by the pot. Temporary prims are counted separately from permanent prims. It is possible to have plenty of (permanent) prims available in your sim/land and at the same time to reach the limit of temporary prims. A sim can hold more temporary prims than permanent prims but the limit can be reached. If that happens then you have two options.

The easier solution is to reset some of your plantpets which are high in temporary prims. If your plantpets are up to date the reset won't affect the number of days left to producing the next baby seed. Most plantpets are much lower in temporary prims at their first phases of growth and by reseting them you can greatly reduce the total number of temporary prims on your land.

The more difficult solution would be to look into the content of the pot of your plantpet and write down the names of all objects inside. Then delete those objects and replace them with simple temporary boxes with the same names. You can also make those boxes transparent. After this procedure your plantpet won't rez any plant parts but it will function as usual and it will be giving you normal baby seeds. Its impact will be only one temporary prim.



Q. Can I take my plantpet to inventory? Can it die while in my inventory?

A. Yes, you can take your plantpet to inventory. Please take only the pot. You can simply delete the rezzed plant parts or let them disappear automatically within 1 min. Next time you rez the pot it will rez all plant parts automatically within 1 min.
While in inventory your plantpet cannot die. It will be paused. Next time you rez the pot the plantpet will resume its functions.



Q. How do I move my plantpet?

A. Please move only the pot. The plant will automatically follow within 1 min.



Q. What do boosters do?

A. Plantpets are breedable and breeding them can be free of charge. Each plantpet can give one baby seeds every 52 days if kept at least 50% happy and 50% healthy. However, if either their happiness or their health is below 50% then they stop counting down the days to baby until both their happiness and their health become again at least 50%.

Whatever the happiness or the health of a plantpet is, the days it needs to produce the next baby seed can be reduced by applying a booster. Boosters are available in the PlantPets Main Store and also on SL Marketplace. We also offer an affiliate vendor for reselling PlantPets boosters.

One unit of booster is equal to one day reduction. A booster may have capacity one or more units. When applied to a plantpet all units of a booster are applied together and the days to the next baby seed get reduced by the number of applied units. However, only one booster (regardless from its capacity) can be applied within 24th.

To apply a booster, simply rez it near your plantpets, touch the pot of the plantpet you want it applied to and then also touch the spawn booster to activate it. The booster will be applied automatically and your plantpet will report this in the chat. If you have touched a few of your plantpets please wait at least 30 seconds and then touch the one that you want the booster applied to before touching the booster.



Q. Do I have to buy boosters for my plantpet?

A. No, you only need to keep your plantpet at least 50% happy and at least 50% healthy and it will count down 52 days to having a baby plantpet. The happiness of a plantpet can be seen by pressing the Full Stats menu button.



Q. My plantpet is stuck and does not count down the days to having a baby plantpet. What's wrong with it?

A. Your plantpet must be at least 50% happy and at least 50% healthy to count down the days to having a baby plantpet. The happiness of a plantpet can be seen by pressing the Full Stats menu button.



Q. My plantpets stopped rezzing and counting down the days to baby seeds. How to fix them?

A. In each pot, locate the script whose name starts with “*plantpet main module 2.0s”. Double-click on it and it will open as a grey window. Find the Reset button at press it. This will reset the growth of the plant and all its characteristics except the days to baby seed which will remain the same. From now on your plantpet should count down the days to a baby see as usual, provided it is at least 50% happy and at least 50% healthy.



Q. How do Xcite!-compatible plantpets work?

A. Xcite!-compatible plantpets become sensitive only when at least 70% happy. They react when an avatar that wears Xcite! genitalia touches the plant parts. In addition, they scan for avatars wearing Xcite! genitalia around them every 5 min and raise the excitement of the first avatar they find.



Q. Can I sell my baby plantpets?

A. Yes.
