New Bed

old_tyre_bed_advert

I got the idea for this when Enrico was working on the VKC Dingo last summer. Someone found a wonderful photo of a sleepy Dingo by Charlie Renwick on the Deviant Art web site. http://charlierenwick.deviantart.com/art/Sleepy-Dingo-Wallpaper-268125936

It sleeps one VKC Pet or multiple and has a built in resizer script.

New Dog House

Many of you will have seen this already and many of you own it, but I am mentioning it here because I didn’t announce it last year when I put it on display, so for a lot of people it’s still a new release.

vavoom_tudor_dog-house-advert_01

The Tudor Dog House is based on the Grade I Listed Dog House at Ightham Moat, the Medieval manor house in Kent, in the UK. The original was built for a St. Bernard named Dido in the late 19th Century.

Enrico, if you’re reading, can we have a St. Bernard, please?

Three New Beds

1. Pampered Pet Bed
What better Valentine’s Day Present could there be for your little furry companions than this?  A luxurious bed that looks just like yours, but this one is theirs! A soft, comfy, quilted pet bedspread, with pillows and a wrought iron headboard and footboard just for the pets.

vavoom_pampered_pet_bed-advert_01

  • The parts can be textured separately or you can change them all at once into one of the colour-coordinated schemes.
  • It also features a scripted resizer so that you can change its size to suit your small or large VKC pets.
  • Multi-pet or Single Pet Mode
  • Owner only or Public Access

.

2. Fruit Crate Pet Bed

A pet bed made from an old fruit and veg crate with a blanket on the top.

Separate texture changers for the crate and for the blanket.

Scripted resizer so that you can change its size to suit your small or large VKC pets.

3. Donut Bed II

This is a second version of my popular Donut pet bed with a new sculptmap and 10 new colours. It also includes the scripted resizer so that you can change its size to suit your small or large VKC pets.

Vavoom! News January 2013

IN THIS ISSUE

* New Bed
* New House
* Cat Tree!

It’s no news to anyone that the VKC now has both Cats and Puppies, right?
Good. I thought not.
So here are some new products to go with the new pets.
All of these are suitable for your dogs, cats and puppies alike.
.
Suitcase Pet Bed
What pet could resist an old fashioned suitcase with a comfy blanket inside? The Suitcase Pet bed’s lid has long been discarded and now it stands upon four little legs to make an ideal pet bed raised just high enough off the ground to appeal to your cats, but low enough for your puppies to jump up into it too.

vavoom_suitcase_pet-bed_advert_01

You can change the colours on the blanket, the case, the handle and the legs independently of one other giving you a wide range of options to personalise your pet bed.

Other features include:
* Owner-only mode.
* Switch between single or multi-pet mode.
* Variable poses when the pet goes to bed.
* Scripted resizer.

.
Cardboard Box Pet House
I’ve always been amused by how readily a cat will jump into a cardboard box to hideaway, or play or go to sleep. So here’s a box for your VKC Cats or other pets.

There are two versions: Clean and Grungy.

vavoom_cardboard_box_pet-house-advert vavoom_grungy_cardboard_box_pet-house-advert

Features include:
* Texture changing blanket.
* Owner-only mode.
* Switch between single or multi-pet mode.
* Variable poses when the pet goes to bed.
* Scripted resizer.
.

Cat Tree
This is my favourite of the new releases.

Vavoom Cat Tree Red Advert

There are five separate beds in the tree. Click on the one you want your pet to go to and then choose his/her name from the menu.

It’s available in three different colours: Red, Blue and Purple

You can choose which pose your pet adopts when he gets into the tree and it’s compatible with all your VKC Pets.

* New Dog House

* Reduced Prices on Dog Houses

AND

* Updates to:

  • bowls
  • beds
  • houses

(The bowl, bed and house updates are to make them work better with the Pathfinding Dogs.)

.
New Dog House
The new house is a simply named “Wooden Dog House” but it has all the usual features:

  • Menu Controlled
  • Custom Textures
  • Works with all VKC Dogs
  • Colour Changing Blanket
  • Can save dog’s sleeping positions.

Prim Count: 9
Land Impact: 5


Reduced Prices on Dog Houses
The Log Cabin and Red Roofed Dog Houses are now only L$150.
All other houses (except the new one which is L$150) are now only L$100.
(This is a permanent reduction in price.)

.
Updates to Bowls
This update improves the way that the dogs approach the bowls and should make the dogs position themselves better when eating or drinking. This improvement is particularly noticeable if you have the new Bloodhound II.

.
Updates to Beds
I’ve retired some of the older beds and modified the new ones to better accommodate the new Bloodhound II.

The one prim beds are now two-prim (Land Impact: 2).

If you don’t have a Pathfinding Dog, you do not need to update your beds or houses.

.
Updates to Houses
I’ve retired some of the older houses and modified the new ones to better accommodate the new Bloodhound II.

If you are using the dog in Pathfinding Mode, you will need to rebake the region to make sure that the sim knows that the house is walkable.

All houses except “Sam’s Dog House” and the Trailer are now compatible with the Pathfinding dog and can be updated in the usual way.

Prim count and LI varies from house to house, some have increased, most have decreased.

If you don’t have a Pathfinding Dog, you do not need to update your beds or houses.

HALF PRICE FUZZBEE and ROPEBALL OFFER

That’s right Half Price on the two throwing toys, the Fuzzbee and the Ropeball until midnight SLT on Sunday 6th November 2011.

If you’re not sure what these toys are, have a look at the videos. (The videos are only short, about three minutes altogether.) The Fuzzbee and the Ropeball are toys that you really throw for your dog and feature some supberb animations by Solcar Amat (who makes the animations for petting the dogs). It’s all controlled by a simple HUD that you wear on your screen, including how far you throw the toys. Full Instructions are included.

I have updated the Fuzzbee and the Ropeball Toys to the VKC Toy System 2 so that your, Huskies, Golden Retriever and even your Wolves can carry them in their mouths like the rest of the new toys.

If you want to send one of these as a Gift, click on the Vendor and choose “Buy as Gift” from the Menu. The vendor will talk you through what you need to do to send the toys as a gift.

Already Have These Toys?

If you already own the Fuzzbee or the Ropeball toy, you can get a free update at my store.
