Petable Turtles | The Turtle Whisperer

by PacificBlue on September 8, 2009

After my Aunt took a look at a turtle boxing system (see previous entry) I was suddenly inundated with Sapphira Laval’s latest innovation – The Turtle Whisperer. I gave Aunty Audrie the night off, and went over to look at the latest turtle boxing system out only today. This is again, a boxing system for Petable Turtles and is available from The Boxed Turtle.

The Turtle Whisperer works easily, by setting out the prim near your turtle and double-clicking to box the turtle.

The system shows statistics on the turtles including sex, name, date of birtth and hunger stats. On touch, even more is shown – parents, grandparents, pregnant, inbreeding, and the cards on the turtle.

The box (or flattened box) itself also shows colours – top, middle and bottom shells, taking on the colours of the turtle.

The Turtle Whisperer script can also be applied to your own prims, if you wish. I was lucky enough to appear at the store in time for the creator, Saphira Laval to give me a full demo of the boxing system in action. Here are her own instructions as she did it, using a demo turtle named Fred.

[10:09]  Sapphira Laval: I am going to drag a turtle this way since Ginger has already been done on the wall there.
[10:09]  Sapphira Laval: Rezz the prim provided (or drop the scripts into your own prim with atleast three faces)
[[10:09]  Sapphira Laval: Place a turtle within 5m of it (or just rezz this within 5m of the turtle)
[10:10]  Sapphira Laval: Double click the prim
[10:10]  Sapphira Laval: [10:10] Turtle Whisperer – Automatic: Looking for closest egg/turtle…
[10:10] Turtle Whisperer – Automatic: TURTLE Fred Avalar’s stats have been saved.
*** Warning: Resetting this script will erase the saved stats.
[10:10]  Sapphira Laval: That is what shows up on your screen.
[10:10]  Sapphira Laval: Then, you click the prim again (or anyone can) and it tells the stats to you in local chat.
[10:11]  Sapphira Laval: Onl to the person who clicks it though. So you don’t have a ton of spam when walking through markets from other peoples browsing

As Sapphira went on to suggest, it makes inventorising your turtles extremely easy. You can simply cut and paste the statistics from the boxing system into a notecard (although I use a spreadsheet). Flatpacking the turtles for sale also makes a good lot of sense considering all the statistics are there for you.At the Boxed Turtle you will find some turtles for sale on the wall using the system.

Finally, Saphirra mentioned that a free update will be made available to those who have purchased. This upgrade will include egg boxing facilities – once the egg bugs known to the Petable Turtles team are resolved. Petable Turtle eggs come with all the same statistics as the turtles, aside from the hatch/birth date (of course) and the gender of the turtle inside.
