Tired of putting 2 matching coats together (1 male, 1 female), and breeding them together only to get something unexpected in a negative manner? When this occurs it actually hurts the secondary market.
People will pay less money for those creatures because they are less likely a guaranteed ROI (return on investment). With Fennux we have made sure to keep breeding simple enough that users will not feel
as if they are jumping hoops day-in and day-out. The majority of breeding is based around skill and knowledge, with a slight amount of luck involved as well to help keep certain Fennux more valuable over time.
We also have included checks and balances with breeding, we do have requirements such as "aggression levels" (personalities), as well as no direct relationship breeding (mom & son, dad & daughter, brother & sister = not allowed).
We want to encourage users to go into the secondary market and mix blood as much as possible. The more people involved in the secondary market, the better! And to those of you who don't want to go into that market often, you don't
have to - you can still "back breed", or "line breed" etc, which ensures our breeders can still have their independence if so desired.
Revolutionary Crafting System
The main issue with modern breedable games is that they keep breeding, breeding, and breeding some more. This causes a LOT of the same coats / traits to be all over
Second Life! Supply and Demand says that it will drive the sell price down, so we came up with a new idea to handle that problem: Crafting of Coats/Traits.
Hidden in the Fennux World are little pieces of parchment with recipes on them. If your Fennux find a full set of parchment, you'll be given a recipe to "craft" a very rare Fennux.
Crafting involves turning 2 or more Fennux into 1 "super-rare" Fennux, which will be able to pass coats / traits just like any other Fennux, they'll just be more "rare".
Any time that Team Fennux notices a certain coat or trait is getting too popular, we can introduce new recipes for brand new Fennux.
Automated Market Listing
Every Fennux that you want to sell can be put into a frozen-animation state and be automatically listed to our marketplace for buying/selling Fennux. You won't have to use extra prims to list
to a marketplace, we'll even attempt at letting third-party developers tap into our database via API so they can try their hand at bettering the marketplace experience.
FNX Points (virtual currency)
Your Fennux are able to earn "FNX Points" as they do various actions in the world. When a Fennux completes a duel, has a new baby, etc - it will directly earn FNX Points. You can view the amount of
Points your Fennux has earned by clicking on them when you are wearing the Fennux HUD. At any point you desire, you are able to "Eternal Merge" your Fennux to send them to a better place - granting the
owner all of it's FNX Points.
You might be wondering what purpose FNX Points have in the Fennux World? Redemption of points for Hydrated Homes, NPC Fennux, Dueling Arenas and more. We encourage users to spend their FNX Points at the "FNX Point Vendors", located at the
Official Fennux Main Store.
Since a few members of Team Fennux are former/current third-party developers - we truly understand what sort of treatment devs need when building products that better the community. We will make
sure to offer APIs with no subscription fees* to anyone who wants to develop these sort of products, subject to acceptance of our third-party developer's agreement. More information? Contact us via the support page.
Fennux are able to get into little "dog fights" with other breeders' Fennux. You can initiate a dog fight via your Fennux HUD, and can even earn extra FNX Points after each battle.
The higher Dueling Tier your Fennux is, the more FNX Points you will be able to earn with dueling - which encourages breeders to let their Fennux play around daily.
Dueling is based off of a "rock, paper, scissors' way of thinking. We have 3 abilities for Fennux to use - each ability is good at "winning" against 1 other ability, "tying" against 1 other ability, and "losing" against 1 other ability.
The idea is to use the skill of analyzing your opponents patterns to attempt at winning more rounds than the opponent. The first person to get the opponent's Fennux energy bar down to 0 will be declared the winner.
Feeding Made Easy
Our food dishes are able to be locked down to just your own Fennux, or you can share it with your "Pack" (guild/fellowship/etc). If you're feeling super generous you can enable
sharing to any Fennux that is nearby! Imagine being able to save someone's poor little Fennux from starvation!
Oh by the way, all of our Fennux eat the same food. We won't make certain breeds eat one kind, and another breed eat something different - this is something a lot of you guys and gals have spoken up
about, and we're not about to go against the grain on this one. :)
No death. No running away.
Our Fennux won't die or run away, they only become ill. The most common cause of this problem is related to not getting proper nutrition. If you don't feed your Fennux for a few days, it'll get sick.
We also enable users to heal their Fennux for FREE over the course of a few days, although we do offer instant full-revives to ensure you don't mess up your breeding - or if you're just a little impatient.
We have put a lot of effort into creating high quality animations for the Fennux. They prance around, dig holes in your ground, sit, lay, sleep and more! We have plenty
of cute (er, uh, cool) animations for everyone to enjoy.
Our Fennux will be very interactive. You'll be able to pick them up and hold them in various poses, attach them to "Avatar Center" to run around with them on any sim, hydrate them to earn extra FNX Points, some may even be rideable! You'll also be able to use Fennux in
Crafting Recipes as well as Dueling. We have made the Fennux to have as many features as possible while monitoring script usage to ensure a near lag-free experience.
We will have a fully accessible mobile website to interact with your Fennux pets on-the-go. This will be compatible with most modern smart phones.
We are also going to develop an iOS application (iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad) as well for ease of use. (And yes, over time we will work on Android as well.)
We are doing everything in our power to make sure you can thoroughly enjoy the Fennux product whether you are using a next-gen viewer, or something a bit older. We understand
the needs of the community - and that some users are not able to use the latest technology due to hardware limitations. We're not going to make you upgrade your PC to use our
product. That's a guarantee.
