Fennux Frequently Asked Questions
How do I birth my Fennux Dens?
Make sure you are wearing your Fennux HUD, then click-and-hold down the mouse on the den for 3 seconds. You should be presented with a dialog. Click "Give Birth". Now the den will start to glow
and you will have 60 seconds to click the den once more to finalize the birthing process. This sounds complex but prevents accidentally birthing dens when you did not mean to. :)
What is Reserve Food and how is it different from Fennux Kibbles?
Reserve Food is available from the Official Fennux Sim and costs L$7 for 4 Reserve Food Kibbles (1 day of food for 1 Fennux). It is "magical server food" which is able to be
eaten by any Fennux that is on the ground in the world of Second Life. It won't feed Fennux in your inventory. If a Fennux cannot find a dish of kibbles around, it will try to eat from the reserve food server balance.
If you have Reserve Food Kibbles the Fennux will eat from there and not start down the path of getting sick.
Fennux Kibbles are actual dishes of kibbles you rez down near your Fennux. You do not need BOTH kibbles AND reserve food, just one or the other... we simply give multiple options. The original idea of Reserve Food was to let breeders
buy "backup food", in case the dishes ever got empty.
My Fennux is stuck in "(Controlled Mode)", how do I get it out from that mode?
I'm assuming the Fennux is stuck with the "(Controlled Mode)" tag above its head because of a third-party item you used.
MOST third-party creators will build in a way for the mode to be turned off, probably by clicking the object they made and pressing Control Off, but if you don't see that, do as follows:
1) Go to the Fennux Main Store
2) Purchase the "Fennux Throne" for L$0 (it's free)
3) Rez the "Fennux Throne" near your Fennux stuck in "(Controlled Mode)"
4) Click the "Fennux Throne", then click the Fennux that is stuck in "(Controlled Mode)"
5) Click the "Fennux Throne" and now click "Control Off" on the menu that displays.
6) After about 10 seconds the Fennux should be perfectly fine now! :)
How can I ride a Fennux, wear a Fennux on my shoulder, hold my Fennux, or run with my Fennux?
Scarf Pets attach to Spine and must be Size 0, 1 or 2 (Mini), Rideable Fennux are size 10, 11 or 12 (Grande) and attach to pelvis. All sizes 0-2(Mini) 3-5(Petite) 6(Common) 7-9(Big) 10-12(Grande) Can be attached at Avatar Center to run along side you, or attached to either hand to be held. But keep in mind, holding a large fennux is likely to cover your face and take up your whole body.
You "CAN" Attach more than one fennux to more than one allowable wear location (IE: You can have several attached to Avatar Center, and just edit them like any prim to have a whole army).
I have a cloned or invalid live fennux or fennux den.
If you have a Cloned Fennux, you can always click the "FIX" button next to it's name on the "Live Fennux" or "Fennux Dens" page on the My Fennux account page.
The easiest way to resolve any other issue is to redeliver it. You can either watch this tutorial video: Redelivery Tutorial Video
Or if you don't want to watch the video, you can go to the My Fennux page, and on the dashboard click on redelivery. It should bring up an input field where you can type in the Fennux ID you want to redeliver. Just copy and paste the ID into the field and click redeliver.
To actually receive your Fennux in world, you will need a redelivery portal which is available at our main sim, or any of our sponsor sims for free. Just rez it in world and click sync. Once you've done that, click on the redelivery portal once more and it should say that you have a den/fennux to redeliver. Just click Den/Fennux and it should appear above your redelivery portal.
Why is the Starter Den / Crafting Den / Wishing Well Den / Fantasy Den not working when given to others?
When you get a starter crate with dens inside, or when you get a crafted den from the crafting machine, or a wishing well den from the wishing well, or a fantasy den from the fantasy gateway, it needs to be rezzed by the first person who "created it" so that our server knows you received it and rezzed it successfully in-world. Only after this can you tranfer it to others. If you happen to have received one of these dens which were never rezzed by the sender (if it was never rezzed, it won't have the Den ID in description that starts from "5" and it will tell you it is an "invalid den" as soon as you rez it yourself), send it back to the sender and have them rez it on the ground first and then ask them to transfer this back to you and it should work normally after this.
My female just went from 100% to 0% heat and didn't drop a den, or go to expecting mode, why?
This happens occassionally, to resolve the issue quickly, just pick the female in question up into your inventory then rerez her. She should either drop a den, or go into expecting mode at this point. It's also good to make sure you always keep the group land tag on when rezzing fennux,
because the fennux needs access to actually rez the den on the sim when it's time.
My Fennux is "Craving", what does this mean?
All Fennux have a feeding schedule. Every 6 hours a Fennux will change it's Hunger Status to "Craving" for 15 minutes. After that it will resume being "Satisfied" for another 6 hours.
This cycle repeats itself indefinitely, so long as the Fennux has either a dish of kibbles or Reserve Food available to consume. You should only be worried if it's anything besides "Craving" or "Satisfied", such as "Famished", "Ravenous", "Sick" or "Recovering".
My Fennux is "(Expecting)", what does this mean?
If a female Fennux is "(Expecting)", this means it has started the process of creating a den. In the next 1-3 hours a den will rez on your land, so long as the Fennux has the rights to do so. (aka, if
you own the land it should rez no matter what, but if the land is deeded to group or set to group and you are not the owner - you will need to make sure all of your Fennux are set to the same group)
Do Fennux ever stop digging up recipes?
Fennux, even if over the age of 49, will continue to dig recipes so long as its eating food and not sick.
Do Fennux stop gaining experience points when dueling?
Fennux, even if over the age of 49, will continue to gain experience points for dueling, and can even tier up to max dueling tier.
Can Eternal Pets duel and earn experience points?
Eternal Pets (of any age) continue to gain points for dueling and can even tier up to max dueling tier.
A player's Fennux will dig up recipes every so often. Once you collect a full set of recipes (piece A, B, C and D for the proper number set), you will be able to read
what the ingredients are for the recipe. For example, Recipe 1 when pieced together states it requires "2x Saharan Tier 1 Fennux" and "2x Western Tier 1 Fennux" to create
a "Mystery Tier 1 Fennux". You will then take the full recipe, and the required ingredients, placing them on the Crafting Machine which is located at the Official Fennux Sim,
and then you will pull the lever and if you did everything correct you will receive in exchange for the recipe/ingredients, a crafting den. The thing to keep in mind here is that
you will lose the recipe and the fennux ingredients, but you get a new "Mystery Fennux Den" in exchange.
Is there a permanent pet option for Fennux?
Yes, we call these "Eternal Pets" because they are quite pleasant when sticking around eternally, as they no longer require food to be enjoyed by the owner.
What happens if I eternal merged a fennux, and want to get it back?
You can buy an "Eternal Reviver" to bring back any Eternal Merged or Eternal Pet fennux. You cannot bring back a fennux dropped into the wishing well, crafting machine, fantasy gateway, etc.
Eternal Pet vs. Eternal Revive vs. Eternal Merge?
Eternal Pet - The fennux will live on forever, not requiring food ever again! But it cannot breed, so keep that in mind.
Eternal Merge - This is sort of like "Deleting" a fennux. This will make it gone "forever".
Eternal Revive - Accidents happen, and that is why we provide the Eternal Revive item! This brings back a Fennux that is either Merged or Petted.
How are the FNX Points for a Live Fennux / Fennux Den calculated?
The base FNX points for a den will be depending upon the tier of the den multipied by 10. For example Tier-2 dens will have 20 FNX points and this will be the minimum FNX points the dens will carry. The rareness of the coat or other traits will sometimes adds extra FNX points as well.
For example, the Chomper are worth 2.5 times more FNX points than Static at this point of time and this could change in future.
The Fennux will carry FNX points based on its tier (multipled by 10) and also on the food being eaten in its life time (not the age of the Fennux). For example Tier-2 fennux will have 20 FNX points plus 1 FNX point for every 4 kibbles of food
eaten in its life time (either bowl food or reserve food). Fennux also gets some FNX points if it was fully hydrated (2 of 2) and its partner is also fully hydrated when it makes a den. Fennux will also earn FNX points once in a day when it duels.
Finally extra FNX points will get added depending on the rareness of the Coat or other traits which could change in future. The FNX points carried by Fennux will be awarded to the owner when that Fennux is eternal merged or when it is turned into eternal pet.
How does Breeding work?
Fennux have a 5 day breeding cycle. They can start to breed at age 5, pregnancy length is random, between 1hrs to 3hrs with a Den being produced (females will show as "expecting").
How can I apply to be a CSR?
CSR Applications are currently closed. When they are open again you can visit the Fennux Jobs page.
How much does Food cost?
28 Days of Food for 1 Fennux (1 month dish) costs L$195, and it gets slightly cheaper the bigger the dish size you purchase. We also have a slight discount for food purchased on Marketplace. Reserve Food (magical, dish-less, server food) is also available for L$7 per day (for 1 fennux).
What's the Fennux Marketplace / Web Market?
The Fennux "Web Market" is a free marketplace that lets players list their Fennux for sale for all of the World to see. Users
will be able to search for the exact type of Fennux they wish to purchase, or be a bit broader on their results, and be able to
quickly click an image of the Fennux for more info - or better yet hop on over in-world to see it via the Teleport Link at any time.
If a user decides to purchase the Fennux, it will be unlisted instantly to avoid confusion for other potential buyers.
To list your Fennux on the Web Market, make sure you are wearing your HUD, and then click your Live Fennux or Fennux Den, press "Config" on your Fennux HUD, and then press "Toggle Market", clicking "YES" again on the HUD to confirm. You can remove it from Web Market by repeating these steps.
Where are the Forums?
We do not have any forums currently.
What's the Fennux life-span?
Fennux will have a total of 9 dens max between a matched pair. Life span will last forever, Fennux are mythological, immortal
creatures which never cease to exist - but they are only able to breed for 49 days. You may wonder why it's 49 days and not 45 days, we wanted to give breeders
a few extra days to breed mis-matched ages (example: an aged 3 Fennux and an aged 1 Fennux properly paired can still have 9 dens total). You will also be able to
turn a Fennux into a permanent-pet (at any point in its life-span), causing it to stop requiring food so you can enjoy it forever.
Do the starter packs have 1 male and 1 female equally?
All starter crates ship with a 50% chance at being Male and a 50% chance at being Female at birth. We do it like this to help show users
that we do not have a tight grip on the controls, rather we let chance, skill, and our coded game to handle who gets what, when they get it, and how they get it.
Doing it like this also helps stimulate the secondary market.
Do Fennux need land to breed?
Yes, it's much easier for people to understand where a Fennux is and what it is doing if you can see it. Plus our Fennux on average are only
12 prims. We are creating an SL Breedable Game, not a web game that also works on SL - so we want to encourage users to actually be on SL to enjoy
our 3D product fully.
Do dens visibily show Male or Female?
Yes you will see if the unbirthed den is a male or a female instantly. Male dens have blue in the cracks of the den. Female dens have pink in the cracks of the den.
Does the HUD cost extra?
No, it is completely free, and more-or-less required to use when interacting with Fennux.
How much food does one fennux eat per day?
4 times per day, so 4 "kibbles" of food, which costs just under L$7.
Do Fennux "cool-down" after they breed?
There is no "cool-down" period, it's simply every 5 days they will be able to breed so long as they are fed properly.
