Thanksgiving POT-Luck!



The ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ™ Team invites everyone to the Thanksgiving POT-Luck Dinner hunt this week. This is your chance to get a fancy dinner table all set up for a feast and a random Fall Harvest seed, along with goodies provided by eight ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ™ Authorized Dealers.

Visit the display "on the dock" at ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ™ Central, and click the green info board. You'll get a notecard with basic instructions and the landmarks to eight Authorized Dealers. Each one has a small table with one food item (turkey, stuffing, jello, bread, pecan pie, etc.)  Most are easy to find, but there are some little challenges along the way. Take a moment to look around at what our amazing affiliates have going on, too!

Once you've made the rounds, return to ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ™ Central and rez the items on the big dinner table. Then click on the table. It will verify everything and then give you a dinner table and a random Fall Harvest seed! (When you're done, be sure to clean up your dishes -- take them back into inventory or delete them -- so the next person can use the table!)

Speaking of the Fall Harvest Limited Editions, seed packs containing one each of Cranberry Kush, Royal Caramel, and Sour Apple are available at the dock, too, so you can complete your set! These are very low potency, slow-growing outdoor plants with tasty foliage colors that will look great in your holiday grows. Packs of 3 seeds are L$400 only at ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ™ Central!

BEAUTIFUL NEW LE, "TYPHOON" ...PLEASE HELP!

FINAL UPDATE:  A total of 367 Typhoon Limited Edition seeds were purchased, raising a total of L$63,620 ($250 USD) for Typhoon Haiyan Yolanda relief! Thanks to everyone who supported this effort by buying seeds!


ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ™ is releasing a new LE to raise funds for survivors of Typhoon Haiyan Yolanda which has affected a total of 9.5 million people across the Philippines -- and displaced at least 600,000 -- when it slammed into the country on Friday11/8, according to the UN's Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs. Survivors were described as being in desperate need of clean drinking water and food. It was likely the deadliest natural disaster to beset this poor Southeast Asian nation.

TYPHOON is 3.25 m tall & 2.3 m wide, medium growth & is an outdoor variety. This LE was designed very large to mirror the huge need for humanitarian help & also the amazing golden  colors were sampled from photos of "Star Fruit", the famous fruit indigenous to the Philippines. Each golden seed of hope is L$180 & will be sold until our goal of $360 USD is met! 

UNICEF is taking donations to help provide children with shelter, clean water, nutrition and vaccines. Representatives said its staff in the Philippines is being repositioned to help in relief efforts and 66 tons of emergency supplies are being sent from Copenhagen.
Donations can also privately be made to UNICEF at unicef.org/support.

Basic Pricing Guide For Beginner's by Doc Stoney

How To Price Your Plants
A Basic Guide To Selling Your ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ™


Your harvest has grown & you are looking for Lins, but aren't too sure how the pricing begins.
Some go low, others stay HIGH...and you're left in the middle, wondering why?
Truly it's not "rocket science" Man! With a little math you'll have it all planned!


OK, so we have all been here. We finally get our first great harvest and we are ready to offer it to all. How much do we charge? Really, time and the market shall tell. The best way for me has been a simple formula that helps me keep my prices to what I feel is fair for both buyer and seller.
Start with the price of the seeds,
some are 60 l while LE's are a bit more.
So starting with 60 L is a great base.
Now add 10 L per generation for food.


So now we get to part that confuses a lot of people.
As we all know females have a higher tendency to pass foliages in their genetics but never forget that males can as well.


I myself add 50 L per LE foliage in the direct line, meaning back to grand parents for a male . Add 100 L per LE foliage in the females. We also add 50 - 100 L for any traits we breed in specially like extreme growth rates, bright, non bright etc. Keeping in mind while mutations are special we cannot control them. So to some a 0.8 bred in bright will be more valuable than a 1.0 mutation that happened when the seed was harvested. We also want to consider other factors such as, was it a flash LE? Is it a rare or brand new LE? These are all factors that affect pricing.

So let's see some examples:
 
NORTHERN LIGHTS X WATER MELON
Gender: Male
Generation: 4
Maturity: 65%
Foliage: Northern Lights Bright (1.0)
Potency: High (3.000)
Growth Rate: Extreme (6.622% per cycle)
Lighting: Indoor/Outdoor
Size: Normal
Height: 0.822 meters
Width: 0.794 meters
CannabiSL version 2.11c
dc335bb9-497b-5650-d490-57dcde5ef5ad

Parents Genotypes:
Mom: Northern Lights X Water Melon, 2.999580, 5.246918, 1, 0.867799, 0.816489, 0.922893
Dad: Water Melon X Water Melon, 2.999511, 5.998047, 1, 0.720396, 0.755000, 0.720513

 
So here we have a male gen 4 hybrid.
to price this man we look to all the factors listed above:
 
60 (seed price)
40 ( 10 L x 4 generations of feeding)
100 for possible foliage passing (see how both mom and dad have the watermelon LE)

Then add 100 l per extras that you bred in specially (the extreme growth rate).
So this little man I would price at 300 L.

 
And Here A Pure Female:
 
STICKY PUNCH X STICKY PUNCH
Gender: Female
Generation: 2
Maturity: 85%
Foliage: Sticky Punch (0.0)
Potency: High (3.000)
Growth Rate: Very Fast (5.000% per cycle)
Lighting: Indoor
Size: Normal
Height: 2.350 meters
Width: 1.900 meters
Yield: 3 seeds (3 left)
CannabiSL version 2.11c
02f74b2d-9328-1397-9b37-61c84612d2ba

Parents Genotypes:
Mom: Sticky Punch, 3, 4, 0, 1.9, 0.02, 2.35
Dad: Sticky Punch, 3, 4, 0, 1.9, 0.02, 2.35

 
Base - 100 L per seed (This is a 3 seed plant)
Food -  20 L
Foliage - 100 L
Newest LE - 200 L

So This Girl I Will Price at 620L
 
In summary:
Base Price ( 60 - 100 L per Seed)
+ 10 L Per generation for feeding
Plus 50 to 100 for foliages that could possibly pass
Plus 100 per special bred in trait
Plus 200 For Brand New Or Flash LE


In Closing;
   I want to say that is just a guide as to how I personally price my plants. Hope it helps

A Reprise, Revisited Again: Towelie says "Don't forget to bring a towel"...

...to cry when plants poof or have problems breeding/growing.


With more folks getting involved with auctions, 3rd party sales, trading, and the like, there is also a greater chance that some guys will try to "game" the system in search of a fast buck. More innocently, there's also a bigger chance that you'll encounter older versions that don't have the latest features. This article outlines a few ways you can make 3rd party dealing a little safer.

Tip #1: FIRST, remember that the "CannabiSL game" is based on a RL activity that can attract less-than-honest, shady characters.  SL mirrors RL to an extent, so tip #1 is KNOW YOUR CONNECTION. Do your Due Diligence. If a deal looks too good to be true, it probably is. If something doesn't seem right, just walk (or fly) away. Unlike RL, you won't get mugged, and you won't get busted!

Tip #2: ALWAYS CHECK THE CREATOR NAME WHEN BUYING FROM A 3rd PARTY. All scripted CannabiSL items - seeds, plants, bricks, Grow Lites, and plant food - show Djeaux Farrasco as the Creator. The only exceptions that are authorized to use the CannabiSL mark are clothing items. Anything else is a fake.

Tip #3: ALWAYS CHECK THE  VERSION AND LAST OWNER OF 3rd PARTY SEEDS & PLANTS. Unless you're an experienced breeder or collect rarities, you'll want to buy seeds and plants with the most up-to-date scripts. In both Versions 1 and 2, you can check the script version number in a plant's stats. The highest Version 1 release is 1.420L-2. The latest Version 2 release is whatever the Transmogrifier is serving!

If the Version 2 mother plants are upgraded before harvesting, the offspring will show Djeaux Farrasco as the last owner. If the last owner is anyone else, it means the plant's mother was not upgraded. If the version number shown in stats is up-to-date, it's all okay, but knowing the seller attends to upgrades is a good thing.

The CannabiSL Team is happy to help with problems that may arise, but we urge you to READ THE TERMS OF SERVICE: http://cannabisl.blogspot.com/p/caveat-emptor.html

The Path to Extreme Phun by Doc Stoney



Wow! What an adventure this has been!


Back in March I was first approached about CannabiSl. I immediately got excited. I mean Weed is something I know right? Was I ever wrong. Back then we were on V1 and we had a lot more luck than formula to breed with. We didn't have Grandparents Genetics Or Even Stats. Plants were always 1 seed, and really it was total luck breeding.
 
Then along came V2 with all the additional stats and genetics. We were now able to actually watch and learn the math for these.

This started my path. From the first 8 Mile High Auction I was (pardon the pun) extremely lucky and got my first ever Full Ultra Plant, a 1 in 100 chance! She then gave us a male and from him we have bred and re-bred, watching the math increase or decrease each time.

I have since learned that as with size  (see Arioch's write-up) this same math can be applied to growth rates. For example, take a 6 % extreme male and breed him with a 2 % (slow) growth rate female, and you will get a new 4% rate, halfway between the two. Then take that plant, breed again to the 6% male, and speed increases more to 5%. By doing this, we now have many generations all above the extreme rate of greater than 5.5%. With time and a little monitoring, everyone can easily achieve this.  It takes a lucky break, but as with life it is more what we do with that luck then how we got it. I wish all the best as we now truly brighten our days with this extreme way.

Happy Pharming To All And I Hope This Helps Newer People To Understand.

In closing, this is purely my opinion, but allow me to welcome you all to a breedable with genetics and generational passes that make sense. In simpler words, welcome to the easiest,  most laid back breedable for all to be able to enjoy. Welcome To CannabiSL!

BASIC MATH FOR BASIC GENETICS by AriochKaos Resident




It has come to my understanding that most don't know about the genetics of how growing

CannabiSL Plants work.
So I decided to research the possibilities of how to make large plants or small plants.
What i discovered is this, "BASIC MATH" so all stoner's need not worry just grab a calculator and try it out yourselves.
Here is a brief example of how to make lighting requirements, Lets say you have 2 plants,  one plant has outdoor lighting and the other has indoor,
outdoor being 2 and indoor being 0 ,
just add 2+0=2 now divide by 2 plants = 1 indoor/outdoor  (eg: 2+0=2 then 2/2=1)
For larger plants just breed a large plant with another large plant for example.
Lets say your plant is 3m tall and the other 4m tall, breeding these 2 plants will result in a smaller plant, (eg: 3+4=7 then 2/7=3.5)
Now take the Offspring Plant 3.5 tall and breed it to another large plant, lets say 4m tall, (eg: 3.5+4=7.5 then 7.5/2=3.75)
As you can see it is getting taller with each additional breeding, the equation will work with width and in reverse if you want small plants.
This equation will also work with Potency. Of course this is just a rough calculation, not an exact science but the numbers are really close.
I hope everyone finds this helpful and if you have any questions feel free to ask me.

Regards, AriochKaos Resident

Here is an example of what I have figured out how the parents Gen numbers work and stand for.

WHAT CAN WE DO with "EXTREMES"


Extreme math for those who like that stuff:)














PARADISE PEACH X PARADISE PEACH
Gender: Female
Generation: 13
Maturity: 96%
Foliage: Paradise Peach Bright (1.0)
Potency: Very High (4.000)
Growth Rate: Very Slow (1.000% per cycle)
Lighting: Indoor
Size: Normal
Height: 0.950 meters
Width: 1.100 meters

BRED W/
MELON MAN 6.938 (0.5)
Gender: Male
Generation: 7
Maturity: 100%
Foliage: Water Melon Bright (0.5)
Potency: High (3.000)
Growth Rate: Extreme (6.938% per cycle)
Lighting: Outdoor
Size: Normal
Height: 1.200 meters
Width: 1.200 meters
CannabiSL version 2.11c

PRODUCED:

PARADISE PEACH X WATER MELON
Gender: Female
Generation: 14
Maturity: 1%
Foliage: Paradise Peach Bright (0.7)
Potency: Very High (3.500)
Growth Rate: Fast (3.969% per cycle)
Lighting: Indoor/Outdoor
Size: Normal
Height: 1.075 meters
Width: 1.151 meters
Yield: 2 seeds (2 left)
Plant Fed (8 cycles left)

As you can see OS 2 seed female:
Brightness  dropped to 0.7 from 1.0
Potency still VERY HIGH but decreased to 3.500 from 4.000
Many gens of Paradise Peach yielded foliage passing (every time so far w/very deep gen pures)
Growth Rate increased 2.369% per cycle  from 1.000 (considerable increase I might add)
Lighting: is now Indoor/Outdoor so food &light will make it grow faster still!
NOTE: Paradise Peach is the slowest indoor variety we have had (Very Slow)
Height & Width did not change considerably and next pollination will be to a male from same mom as this plant so hoping to now have a Paradise Peach that is strong foliage but a faster growth rate!

FULL ULTRAS & EXTREMES

Hmmm...what's a FULL ULTRA??


Everyone is familiar with the very slow, slow, medium, fast, and very fast (1-5%) growth rates displayed on plants. And a few growers have seen the Ultra mutation, which doubles growth rate. Ultras are the rarest CannabiSL mutation: the odds are 1 in 100. With V2, the Ultra growth rate is inheritable. To distinguish this, a plant that has the 1% mutation is labeled "Full Ultra." Offspring of Full Ultras show the ususal growth rate labels if their averaged growth is 5% or less. But if an Ultra's offspring has an averaged growth rate greater than 5%, it is labeled "Extreme."

New Dynamic List of Varieties

For some time, we've kept a Google Docs spreadsheet that listed all released ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ™ varieties linked under The Plants on this blog. Starting now, the List of Varieties is generated automatically direct from the genetics database that the plants themselves use. Using some cool SL tricks, it's illustrated, too!

Check it out here!

Oh... The new list displays everything, including a couple of varieties that haven't yet been released! When we're about to roll out a new LE, hunt, or charity seed, the genetic data is entered in advance, so you can find out what's coming up by checking it often!

1. Rez the Update Transmogrifier in the same region (sim) as the seeds and plants you need to update. The Update system is owner specific, so you must be the owner of BOTH the Update Transmogrifier and the seed/plant.  If two persons share the same space, they will each need their own Transmogrifiers.

2. Touch the Update Transmogrifier. You will see a message in local chat that it is "listening."  The base of the Transmogrifier will turn green to indicate that it is "on."

3. Touch the seed or plant to be updated. Select the ADVANCED menu and click UPDATE.  You will see a series of messages in local chat confirming the update process.

4. Repeat Step #2 for all plants to be updated.  YOU DO NOT NEED TO TOUCH THE TRANSMOGRIFER BETWEEN PLANTS!

    Please be aware that:
        (a) The update affects offspring only,  The plant you update will not change.
        (b) The update process does depend on SL-imposed bottlenecks. Don't try to work too fast.  You can "stack" updates onto the Transmogrifier, but keep an eye on the messages in local chat.  If SL seems slow or laggy, wait.
        (c) You do not need to update males unless you offer them for sale.
       
5. When you are done, touch the Transmogrifier again to turn it off. The base will turn black as an indicator.

The Update Transmogrifier is copyable so you can share one with other CannabiSL growers. Obtain a free CannabiSL Update Transmogrifier at CannabiSL Central. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Petopia/198/222/23

2.11b Upgrade Coming

Thanks to several alert growers, we have identified a couple of glitches in the new 2.11 plants.  None of these issues prevent your plants from breeding normally, but they are annoying (if you notice them) and can cause some weirdness (if they happen to you). We are now testing a 2.11b upgrade and hope to have updated seeds rolling out on Monday, July 7, along with a new Transmogrifier.

The specific problems are:
  1. Nonfunctional "Decor" button and visible "Germinate" button on plants during the 30 second period after the final harvest is made.  This means that 2.11 plants cannot be converted to decor unless you give up a harvest, and it causes some very weird behavior if plants are double-germinated.

    For now, be extra careful if you have harvested out a plant. If you click on a plant and it has a "Germinate" button, don't click that button! Germinate only seeds and seed bricks! We do realize that those of you who grow lots of plants will have to be extra alert, but as we often say "slow down" -- think "laid back" and be careful!

  2. Some erratic cycling of auto-feeding. Some (not all) plants may cycle into an Overfed state and then revert to auto-feeding without you clicking on it. Some growers have reported being able to resolve this by overfeeding again, pausing, and other gyrations, but for now, you can think of it as "super easy one-click feeding." 
Again, we apologize for any inconvenience and confusion this may cause. We are currently testing the 2.11b upgrade and will have it available within the next 24 hours.  Based on your feedback, we have developed a new Transmogrifier that will streamline the "work flow" in updating your plants, too.  As a token of our appreciation for your patience and support, we have reduced the price of Plant Food Spikes and Liquid Plant Food Refills by 10% until the update is released!

Thank you for your support!

Upgrade to be Released Soon

The first major upgrade for Version 2 is coming very soon! We've been referring to it in-house and in-world as "Version 2.10 M-8," but there are so many new features that we've decided to roll it out as Version 2.11.  An Update Transmogrifier will be available on June 30, along with new versions of all our standard seed packs.

Version 2.11 has a bunch of cool features, including:
  • No harvest button on mature males, eliminating an old tricky challenge (not harvesting your boys) that has vexed growers for a long time. When you're clicking down a long line of plants to harvest, you will no longer risk whacking your studs!
  • Corrections/revisions to the Stats display of growth rates. "Chat spam" has been reduced for indoor/outdoor plants not grown under lights.
  • A fix to the dreaded "negative time remaining" bug, as well as a little rules change that a lot of growers are going to like. Now, when you take a flowering plant into inventory, the system will not count down actual time but simply "charge" 3 hours against the time remaining for that plant.
  • A random texture-flipping animation at each growth cycle to add more visual phun to your pharm. (This was a V1.420 feature that didn't make the trip to the original V2 plants.)
  • An expanded HUD menu to let you configure whole groups of plants to use Standard or Liquid Plant food with one click.
  • One-click HUD activation on plants. Once you set up the password, the plant is listening for the HUD. No need to click Advanced > HUD On twice!
  • A unique ID code is now shown in Stats for every plant, along with some "security" tools to help us track down "clones" that some growers produce by exploiting glitches in the SL environment. This is our first step to creating a much richer and useful web-based system for growers, too. Right now, it's not the most visible feature of the upgrade, but rest assured it means more cool things in the future!
Additionally, there's a ton of what we scripters call "refactoring" and "code optimization." Some of the things that CannabiSL plants have always done now happen smoothly, a little faster, with less chance of errors and less "lag impact" on your sim!  And on the phun side, we're implementing some new messages that we hope make you grin. (Just to let one out of the bag, when a plant finishes it's 30 seconds after being harvested, it will now be eaten by locusts. Keep an eye out for deer, raccoons, and aphids! :)

What about Version 1 Compatibility?

This has been the $64,000L question since we announced that this upgrade would break back compatibility with Version 1 males. Simply put, Version 2.11 females will not breed with Version 1 males. Period. However, your Version 2.10 plants are 100% compatible with the new version, and they will breed with Version 1 males.

Remember also that when you use the Update Transmogrifier on a plant, it does not update the scripts or data for that individual plant, but rather updates the plant's reproductive system so that its offspring will be the new version.  So, you can update your existing Version 2.10 stock using a Transmogrifier (so the plants' ovules are version 2.11), yet still breed that 2.10 parent with a V1 male.

Also, only female plants make babies, so there isn't any reason to upgrade males (unless you are offering them for auction at CannabiSL Central - see below).

Rather than turning some nonexistent switch and kill everyone's V1 plants, June 30 marks the point from which all future releases will be incompatible with V1 males, and the CannabiSL Team will no long provide support for V1 plants.  Everybody has had over two months now to breed their V1 LEs  forward.

All plants offered for auction beginning on July 3 must be upgraded. (Yes, we realize males don't have to be upgraded, but for consistency we ask that males offered at auctions are upgraded, same as females.) This does not mean that the plant itself has to be Version 2.11 but that the ovule inside it must be the upgraded version. Thanks for your support on this!
