milkmade breast update version 1.32

*This update will be mandatory as of Feb 28th 2015 as it is required to function with the Stud pump and future releases.*

This is a minor update to add a few features we had wanted to put in for 1.30 but were not quite ready yet as well as add support for some compatibility between the up coming stud pump and milkmade. To get this update come to the :mused: main store and click the update icon under the milkmade vendor.

Snapshot_001

Features:

  • Added support for Stud pump compatibility (topical consumption will stop the leak out from engorgement penalty so you can start pumping right away and save the milk.)
  • Lactation partials (Drip, Squeeze, Stream, and Hosed rug spray) are now customizable via notecard,  (included: regular, strawberry, chocolate, blood, acid, sparks, and stars)
  • Optimized and consolidated code for better performance.
  • Masters now have access to nipple menu even when nipple menu is “locked.”

Bug Fixes:

  • Manual link from support menu now no longer links to 1.2 version of manual
  • “Squeeze on” now triggers correct particles

How to update:

The update you receive will contain a fresh fully up to date copy of everything. You can also update using the included update USB to move the new scripts into your currently set up breast.

This blog post will cover the how to use the USB updater if you would rather that to resetting up the breasts from scratch.

hey musers!

*Edit Jan 26th 2015 the update pad location has moved to in front of the main store with the new lay out you can find it here*

*Edit Nov 6th: after some issues with the replacement tanks not being sent following the shut off we have opted to go back to the tank update pad for now while working on a way to get around the delivery issue.*

*Edit Oct 27: This update is now fully live. This means all older tanks will no longer to work, they will delete themselves on Rez and a replacement will be sent. Please rez the replacement as soon as you are able. If you experience any issues with this please put in a ticket.*

We have a tank update for you all! This will fix a few bugs and add in some long time requested features. As we are preparing to release the Stud Pump, this update will be mandatory as of Oct 24th 2014, please take the time to update your tanks within the next four weeks. Instructions for how to do so are listed below.

Storage tanks version 1.21

New Features:

  • Tank logs will now be available to view on your stats.
  • Tank identification key will show in description of the tank to improve personal tracking and communication of which tank is which.
  • Ability to set tank logo texture back to original if it is changed.
  • Transfer volume buttons will now display dynamically based on the total amount of milk in the tank.

Bug Fixes:

  • More stable with network communication errors
  • Fix bug that had tanks going negative
  • Master now no longer shows in tank access list if not added.

Tank 1.21 update

How to Update:

  1. Take your tanks into inventory.
  2. Bring them to mused. We will have two update locations running. One on the green and one in the town square  in front of the store.
  3. Rez your tank on the tank updater deck. The scan range is short and reads from the center of the object. This means some of the larger tanks may need to be edited and moved to be sure they are close enough to be caught by the scan.
  4. The text on the updater will say “processing tank” and then pop up a dialog confirming you wish to update the tank. You have 30 seconds to respond.
  5. Your existing tank will delete and a replacement updated tank will be sent to you.
  6. Rez (not wear!) your new tank and let it go though its set up with our servers.
  7. Repeat with remaining tanks.

Tip: Your milking buckets, glass bottles, Steins, Easter buckets, and milk yokes can be updated this way as well! NOT your pump tank this will be updated with the breasts should an update be needed.

The milk cartons are not a refillable storage item and as they are intended to be disposable are not included in the update.

Possible errors:

“Too many objects” You have too many scripted objects near the tank updater deck please take in all but the tank you are currently updating.

“Our database indicates that an exiting update is in progress. Please rez the tank you were given. If you didn’t receive a tank please file a support ticket.”
 our database only allows one tank in replacement status per person to prevent loss and errors. You should always rez a replacement tank as soon as you receive it. If for some reason the replacement tank does not come through we can get it taken care of with a ticket.

“Tank not found” This indicates that the tank has taken too long to talk to our server and is not properly initialized for the updater to read it.

“No update needed” Your tank is already current version.

Other problems:

Rezed a tank but its not doing anything.

  • Move the tank closer to the update deck
  • rerez and try again.
  • submit a ticket

The tank deleted but I never received the update

  • submit a ticket and we can replace the undelivered tank.

I hit yes on the replacement dialog but nothing happens.

  • Timer has run out rerez tank to start again.

My stats show I still have an old tank but I have updated all I can find.

  • submit a ticket and we can replace your lost tank.

How to Submit a ticket

Be sure to check local chat for error messages or instructions to include in your ticket to help staff address your issue.

Suggested New Production Limits

As you know we work hard to ensure that the Milk Made is not exploited and that the milk market is kept balanced to encourage the enjoyment and benefit to the most users. Recently we have been able to help bring about a rise in milk prices though our policies and changes to the system. With this rise we are seeing more people who are producing more milk. We are glad to see more people actively involved in the system. However we have noticed that some users are taking this to an extreme and are producing more than should be possible with an interactive system.

An avatar consistently producing over 40 liters a day destroys the usefulness of the calcium depletion. In order to protect the integrity of the system and the market we are proposing a change to how calcium depletion works and a daily production limit. This change should not affect most users but only those who are pushing the upper limits.

  1. Users producing more than 10 liters  per day will be subject to additional calcium depletion.

    • 10% of your daily production over 10 liters will be deducted from your calcium.
    • Example: 20 liters produced in one day. 20 – 10 = 10, 10% of 10 is 1.0. Your calcium depletion for that day will be 0.5mg for the standard daily deduction, and 1.0mg for your production for a total of 1.5mg depletion.
  2. Users producing more than 25 liters per day will be subject to a 12 hour cooling off period.

  3. Users producing more than 2.5 liters per day organically will be subject to a 12 hour cooling off period.

  4. The cooling off period will function similar to the verification hold, but it can be removed by drinking an amount of milk yet to be determined.

This is something that we have discussed in the past but have avoided because we wanted to give you as much freedom to play with the system as possible. However our anti botting measures have not had the full impact that we had hoped.  We still want to reward high producers, MoT Levels will continue as they have been. After looking at the small amount of users this will effect and the negative impact such incredible production has on the game and market it seemed the best choice to make.

As you know this is not our first time fighting this battle. We have gone to great lengths to prevent automation of the pumping process, and other forms of cheating. Those efforts have beared fruit which we are very pleased with. We do it to protect your investment in our product, but it does impact our ability to work on and put out new products.

Our goal in these matters is always to minimize the impact and cost to our customers. Our estimation is that less than 5% of our active users will experience these new limitations. We also believe this fairly places the burden on those who should carry it.

Your daily totals can be seen on your website stat page. Please let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

*Thank you everyone for your feed back we are closing comments for the time being while we look over the numbers and the suggestions. New information will be posted on this topic in a new blog post when we have more to share. *

Coming soon: Family Tome Update

An update to the Family Tome is coming!

Update includes:

  • A new look that will let you have it closed or open. (including materials update)
  • You can send milk to family members directly from your tank.
  • When you delete your family the tome will now burst into flame and char to make the change more clear.
  • Ability to trade the tome within the family without it breaking
  • Trading it to someone outside of the family will no longer break it.
  • Family Gen will be called Family Rank to help reduce confusion that stemmed from having two different rankings named Generation.

We are in the final stages of testing this so you should be seeing the update very soon.

Ask :mused:

Hey musers!

I figured I would open the floor up for a Q&A post here are some of the questions we got:

Q: When is the Stud Pump coming out?

A: The short answer? When its ready. The long answer, :mused: does not like to set release dates because we want to get the product working with all the features we want to include as bug free as we can get it. This means that we want to be able to make it, test it, fix it, add more polish, test it, fix it, etc. as many time as is needed to get right. We are currently in the very early testing and polishing phases. We will release it when its ready and not a moment before or after. This means we are not rushed leaving in known bugs or leaving out desired features but will also not sit on a finished product waiting for an announced release date.

Q: When will the mesh breasts come out?

A: See above.

Q: The last post about them (the breasts and the stud pump) was kind vague when can we know more details?

A: We will release more details when we have them. The thing with this is we don’t want to just do “milkmade 2 now with semen” or “full breasts: the mesh edition” we want to make something different and better and compatible with what :mused: already carries and with as many other products that you might already use as we can. We will be making changes to the milkmade game to make it work with, but not require, the stud pump game and vise versa. We need to consider bonuses and make sure they are fair and balanced, we need to figure out how being a master would work for both systems, we need to plan for interactions etc. We also want to make sure our mesh breasts are not just a duplication of everything that’s already on the market, and that we can make them compatible with milkmade. For both products we want to be sure what we offer is the best  we can make it, in terms of appearance, ease of use, scripting, compatibility and the like. So at current we don’t have any more details than what we have already released to offer you but when we have them I will give them to you.

Q: Will the mesh breasts be a free upgrade for current users or will it a whole new thing I need to buy?

A: We will have a way for current milkmade users to upgrade to the mesh if they want to, however it is not a “free update” but a whole new product as such we have not sorted out the exact details for how this will work but it will mostly likely be from a milk exchange of some sort or perhaps a deep discount for current users. Also the prim version of milkmade will continue to work and be supported so that no one should feel obligate to go to the mesh version. Again not sure how we want to do it but we will be taking our current users base into account and will not be forcing anyone to go to mesh nor will we tell you to simply re buy the product, we will release more details on this once we have a better idea how we want to handle that.

Q: The last update to milkmade included xcite! compatibility, what is that and how does it work?

A: xcite! is an arousal system  that adds an extra element to sexual role play in Second Life. It allows you to set up and configure your “kinks” and likes and dislikes so that when playing with yourself or a partner your arousal will increase naturally depending on what is done with the system. They offer partner scripts so that other venders can have their product interact with the xcite! system, usually you will find it used with furniture or bondage equipment. Because milkmade lends itself to those with an interest in lactation as part of their sexual play and experience we wanted to add compatibility to other products that are also commonly used in such play for a more seamless experience. You can access the xcite! menu for the milkmade breasts from the settings menu. Which you can read more about in our manual linked here. We are considering adding compatibility to Sensations in the future which is a similar arousal system.

Q: On occasion there are people that are selling full tanks. After that whole milk duplication incident, there was a post on the website about careful milk buying, it got me to thinking as it seems only a siphon is supported – In cases like this where a user is selling a full tank, should they be selling the milk via a siphon first, and then the tank? Or are we still allowed to buy full tanks from other users?

A: Yes you can buy full tanks but carefully. We will support unique tanks in the system, that display on your stats and the milk in them, However, if the milk is found to have been created though an exploited it will not be supported. We have made changes to the system to make doing this much much harder but I would not go so far as to say its impossible as cheaters will do there best to work around the system. It would be best for record keeping for the milk to be sold via the siphon if possible. Also remember than when receiving any storage tank or bottle from another user either as a gift or as a sale to rez the tank afterword to be sure that the transfer of ownership went through correctly and that it will display on your stats.
