Hello Fennux Enthusiasts, and welcome to The Official Fennux Launch Guide!
This page will serve as your Getting Started Guide to The Fennux, please read it carefully.
GET ALL OF THE ITEMS OUT OF YOUR FENNUX STARTER CRATE
1.) Rez the "Fennux Crate"
2.) Click the crate, select "Open Lid" from the menu that shows up and it should start emitting an orange particle circle around the crate.
3.) At this time you will hear soothing music. Please listen to it for a while. After the music starts to get annoying push "Mute" on the menu.
4.) Make sure your orange particle circle is in land that you are able to rez items on, the crate will soon be rezzing out dens, homes, food, etc.
5.) If your orange particle circle looks fine, and is on your land you have rights to rez on, select "Rez Homes", you should then see home(s) on the ground.
6.) Now select "Rez Food", and it too will be on the ground.
7.) Finally select either "Rez 1 Den" or "Rez All Dens" to automatically rez all unbirthed Fennux Dens to the ground.
8.) Grab the HUD by clicking on "Get HUD", after a few seconds the menu should return for you to click "Get Hydrater" so you can obtain that as well.
9.) Grab the Redelivery Portal by clicking "Get Portal", this will enable you to use our Fennux Self-Service Redelivery System in case something goes wrong in SL somewhere down the line.
10.) Close the Lid.
SETTING UP YOUR OFFICIAL FENNUX HUD
You can now attach/wear/add the HUD to your avatar. It should pop up at the top-center of your screen. If you notice that the white hovertext on the HUD is not
showing up properly, follow these simple instructions to adjust your HUD to be perfect no matter what your screen size is:
1.) Make sure your HUD is on the "ME" Tab, and look for the top-right corner for a small set of blue arrows. These are hidden to blend in with the HUD background.
2.) Do you not see the top right corner arrows? Right click and EDIT your HUD, and move it down as far as you need to so it fits on your screen better. Once you see
the arrows, stop editing the HUD and continue on to Step 3.
3.) Click either the UP or DOWN arrow at the top right corner. The white hovertext on the HUD should move up and down to be perfectly aligned.
And that's all you have to do. Now you can click on Fennux, get info about them, configure them, and with a Dueling Arena - Duel them.
FENNUX HOMES & HOME PLACEMENT
It's important to place your homes around a food dish (unless you want to solely use "Reserve Food", aka Server Food). You can click a home and change it's range/radius to something larger, but by default it will be setup as "5 meters".
Homes have multiple options. When you click one you will get a menu showing up that says the following:
Unlink (unlink fennux from home)
Breeding Off/On (enable or disable automatic breeding of compatible non-paired Fennux on the home)
Hover Off/On (enable or disable always-on home hovertext)
Show Range (This displays via particle how big the area is that the Fennux can move around in)
Activity (how active the linked fennux animations will be)
Access (who can link to your home? Pack Members, The Owner, Group, or Everyone)
Volume (How loud are your Fennux going to be?)
Find Fennux (In case you are unable to locate one on the home)
Range (The range the linked Fennux will be able to move around in)
When you are placing Fennux Homes, try clicking "Show Range" on the homes. This will show a particle that helps you determine proper placement. Make sure your Fennux is always within 20 meters of a food dish to eat from it.
After your homes are setup and the Fennux which reside on them are within the range of Food, you are ready to start matching Fennux Dens up.
PRE-MATCHING FENNUX DENS
Fennux Dens come in 2 textured variants. "Grey with Pink Highlights" and "Grey with Blue Highlights". Pink is for Female Fennux and Blue is for Male Fennux.
The keyword here is "Opposites Attract". Males are breedable with Females so long as the fennux are not directly related. The only other exception to this rule is "Aggression".
Look above the Fennux Den, and make sure the colored hovertext (white, yellow, or teal) is different than the colored hovertext above the matched den you are trying
to pair up. If the hovertext is the same color, you do not have a "mis-match" - and you need to find another color. There are only 3 colors which match up to Aggression, Tame is Teal,
Wild is Yellow, and Neutral is White.
Neutral with Wild and Tame
Tame with Neutral and Wild
Wild with Neutral and Tame
Wild with Wild
Tame with Tame
Neutral with Neutral
Why do we do this? There are a lot of reasons, but the main one is that It gives a ~66% chance for for compatibility, which encourages people to enter the secondary market
as well as offers breeders a challenge.
Once you have your Fennux Matched up - it's time to birth them! We recommend you put 2 Fennux Dens next to each other, a total of 4 pre-paired Fennux on each side of the
home. (North, South, East, West) so it makes a little cross on the ground, then go on to the next step of this guide.
BIRTHING YOUR FENNUX
MAKE SURE YOUR FENNUX ARE WITHIN RANGE OF A FENNUX HOME BEFORE PROCEEDING (Otherwise you will have to pick it up and place it down again)
Click-and-Hold your Fennux Dens for 2 seconds each, then let go. A menu will pop up each time you click-and-hold.
You can either "turn off hovertext" from this menu, or "Give Birth" to the Fennux inside the Den.
So select Give Birth on the male and the female. We usually do this on all 4 pairs really quick - that's up to you.
After you click Give Birth, you will need to click the dens again ONE LAST TIME. This will finalize the birth in case you accidentally birthed a Fennux via clicking menus too fast. :)
Some people get confused thinking the 60 second countdown is a waiting period until it births automatically. This is false! This is a countdown before the den cancels the birthing process.
If left untouched, the den will not birth - so you HAVE to click the den within 60 seconds to finalize. It's a 3 click process. (Click and Hold, Click Birth, Click Den)
AUTOMATIC BREEDING YOUR FENNUX
Do you not feel like pairing up each and every Fennux? Now you don't have to with the "Automatic Breeding" feature of Fennux Homes! All you need to do
is place up to 8 compatible Fennux on a Home (Your best bet is to make sure all of the males are the same Aggression, and all of the females are opposing aggressions of the males,
guaranteeing 4 offspring every 5th day), then turn "Automatic Breeding: ON" via the menu system on the home. THIS IS IMPORTANT, make sure your home states Automatic Breeding is ON, else your unpaired Fennux will
PAIRING YOUR BIRTHED FENNUX
This is the easy part, pairing Fennux up. Once you pair them - they will stay paired forever, unless you separate the pairing with your Fennux HUD.
1.) Click one of the 2 Fennux you want to pair together.
2.) You should be looking at the INFO Tab, switch it to "CONFIG" Tab.
3.) Click the "Choose Mate" button.
4.) Click the other Fennux you wanted to pair the selected Fennux with.
5.) Your 2 Fennux should now be successfully paired.
It's literally that simple. Keep in mind you DO NOT
have to pair Fennux to breed, but if any Fennux are unpaired you must place them on a Fennux Home that has "Automatic Breeding: ON" for them to breed. If automatic
breeding is off on the home, the Fennux will not breed - unless of course they are paired.
PAIRING FENNUX WITH A FRIEND
You can pair your Fennux with your friend's Fennux. All they have to do is be present with their HUD Attached, and of course their Fennux on the ground or attached to their avatar.
Repeat the same process as before, but end up clicking your friend's Fennux last. It will ask them to confirm - after they press "YES" on their HUD, the pairing will have been successful.
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO KEEP BOTH FENNUX AT THE SAME LOCATION. You only need to keep the Female Fennux rezzed on the ground every 5th Day it's supposed to breed. You can keep
the Fennux physically separated as long as they are eating enough Food. If one of the Fennux gets sick before the breed is supposed to occur, the breed will not occur - it's between
you and your Friend to ensure your Fennux are both eating properly, but this does allow for a better breeding experience - even long distance breeding, so you and your friend can enjoy
your own Fennux separately while waiting for the offspring.
The owner of the Female Fennux will always get the offspring, so keep this in mind.
It's the same as the above process, just click your Live Fennux, click on the "CONFIG" Tab on the HUD, and then click "Separate Pair".
CONFIGURING YOUR FENNUX
Try clicking a Fennux, then click "CONFIG" on the HUD to bring up the CONFIG Tab.
CHANGE NAME - Set the name of your Fennux for all to see.
ETERNAL PET - If you have an Eternal Crystal you can turn your Fennux into a pet that will last forever and no longer eat food! :)
TOGGLE MARKET - Press this button to enable broadcasting this Fennux as "FOR SALE" to the Web Market.
CHOOSE MATE - Click this, then click another Fennux to pair them up.
SHOW PAIRING - Click this to visually show a pair in-world, it's very useful for double checking.
SEPARATE PAIR - Click this and confirm the separation so you can re-pair Fennux.
REBUILD FENNUX - Only click this if you have not first tried "RESET", this will rebuild your Fennux and cause the Fennux to eat one kibble of food.
INSTANT REVIVE - If you have a Healer Den, you can instantly revive your Fennux instead of waiting for it to get better on its own.
ETERNAL MERGE - When you are ready, you can Eternal Merge your Fennux - which will cause the Fennux to disappear, but yield you all of the FNX Points it had.
RESET - Press this to reset the scripts inside the Fennux, it fixes most problems instantly.
UNLINK - Press this to unlink your Fennux from its last known home.
There are lots of configurable options, feel free to try them all out to learn more about our product.
At age 4-5 days Fennux will start to dig up recipes, at a rate of 1 recipe every 5 days approx. You will find them sparkling on the ground, semi-transparent. Make sure to click the recipes as you find them to stop the timer inside of them from causing them to self destruct. On your HUD you will get a green confirmation that the recipe is a legitimate, real recipe upon clicking. The particles will also stop and the transparency will go away so the recipe piece turns fully opaque.
Gather Part A, B, C and D of any numerical recipe - and look at the required fennux ingredients, then bring all 4 pieces of the recipe and all of the ingredients to a Crafting Machine
(these will be at the Official Fennux Sim http://slurl.com/secondlife/Fennux/
) Rez all of the required items, then click the Lever. If all goes well, you will see an animation occur,
and witness your Fennux disappearing. A few seconds later an inventory offer will happen - giving you a brand new, Mystery Region Fennux Den!
It's a regular Fennux Starter Den, but the coat inside will be far from regular. Crack it open and see what's inside at your own convenience. :)
Dueling is simple. All you need to get started is a "Dueling Arena", a Live Fennux of some variety, and a Friend with a Live Fennux (Or an NPC Fennux).
1.) Rez out a Dueling Arena.
2.) Rez out your Live Fennux near the Arena.
3.) Have your friend rez out their Live Fennux near the Arena (or rez out an NPC Fennux)
4.) Click the Dueling Arena - and ask your friend to do the same (unless you are using an NPC Fennux)
5.) The Duel should start instantly upon 2 clicks! (2 from you, or 1 from you and 1 from your friend)
All you need to do is wait until you see the circle-timer counting down slowly, then press one of the 3 skill buttons to begin your attack against the opponent.
(Spellcast, Claw Attack, Roll Attack) Each skill has a variable amount of damage it can do, some have a chance at doing higher damage with a chance at doing lower damage,
other are more balanced and predictable.
Each skill ties against itself, has a weakness against another skill, and has an advantage over another skill. Spellcast beats Claw Attack, Claw Attack beats Roll Attack, Roll attack beats Spellcast.
It's a lot like "Rock, Paper, Scissors" - so if you know how to play that, you'll know how to play this.
You are able to list your Fennux to the "Web Market
" for free by issuing the following commands in-world:
1.) Click the Live Fennux or Fennux Den you want to list to the Web Market.
2.) Click "CONFIG" on the HUD.
3.) Click "Toggle Market" on the CONFIG Tab.
4.) It will ask you if you want to list this Fennux on the Market, click "YES".
(Additionally, if you have any Market Tokens, you may type in 1, 2, 3 or 4 in local chat to feature the listing for the corresponding amount of weeks - Press "YES" after typing in local chat.)
After that - your Fennux will be listed to the Web Market successfully. If you no longer want your Fennux listed, repeat the same process again to toggle it to be off.
Alternatively, if someone purchases your Fennux it will automatically be UNLISTED from the Fennux Web Market upon purchase.
HYDRATER (HAND HELD)
If you hydrate your Fennux manually, 1 time per 24 hours, up to 2 times per 5 days, and you max out your Fennux Hydration to read "2 of 2", when your Fennux breed they
will have a slight increase to breeding out something better than usual. This can mean higher tier coats, higher tier traits, etc. The parents of the offspring will also receive FNX Points after the den is created. (FNX Points is our virtual currency which may be used to purchase dozens of Fennux Accessories.)
1.) Attach the "Hydrater" to your avatar, just add or wear it.
2.) Click the Live Fennux that you want to hydrate.
3.) That Fennux should now successfully be hydrated one time, click it again 24 hours from now to hydrate it a second time.
If you want to disable the hydrater from operating, but want to keep it attached to your avatar, you may click the hydrater to toggle it "ON" or "OFF".
(HYDRATION IS NOT REQUIRED, IT'S OPTIONAL!)
Using a Hydrated Home, you are able to link up to 8 Live Fennux to it, using it just like a regular home.
The only difference here is that Hydrated Homes will automatically hydrate your 8 Linked Fennux periodically. Just link them to the home, sit back and relax! :)
It may take some time before the Fennux appear to be fully hydrated, this is normal, the hydrated home only needs to operate 1 time per day to successfully hydrate
your (up to) 8 linked Fennux.
(HYDRATION IS NOT REQUIRED, IT'S OPTIONAL!)
REDELIVERY PORTAL / SELF-SERVICE REDELIVERY
Rezzing the "Redelivery Portal" to the ground will enable you to use the "Fennux Redelivery" feature of your My Fennux account.
This item can be found within the Fennux Crate.
PART ONE (WEBSITE):
1.) Simply visit Fennux Redelivery
, if you are not logged in - please login.
2.) Type in the ID of a known, missing Fennux. (All of your Fennux IDs are listed on the Live Fennux
and Fennux Dens
3.) Press the "Redeliver" button, and wait for the successful message to show up on your web browser.

2.) Click the "Redelivery Portal" and press "Sync" on the menu thats shows up.
3.) Click either "Fennux" or "Dens" on the menu to have Fennux/Dens redelivered to you automatically.
4.) Watch as the "Redelivery Portal" rezzes the missing Live Fennux / Fennux Dens before your eyes.
Each user is alotted a certain amount of redelivery credits. If for some reason you require more, please create a ticket
ETERNAL PET CRYSTAL
You may purchase an "Eternal Pet Crystal" from our Fennux Main Store
this is an explaination of how to use the item:
Rez the crystal within range of your Fennux. Click the Fennux you want to make into an "Eternal Pet". Click the "CONFIG" tab on your Fennux HUD,
press "Eternal Pet" (not to be confused with Eternal Merge!!!!), and watch as your Fennux changes its hovertext to further confirm the operation.
From now on this Fennux will not require food to keep around, but please keep in mind this will also stop it's breeding!
HEALER FENNUX / SICK FENNUX RECOVERY VIA FOOD
If your Fennux gets sick (because he or she was not fed properly), you have 2 options:
1.) Start feeding your Fennux again, and by day 6 it will get better (guaranteeing a loss of 1 offspring).
2.) Purchase a Healer Fennux to Instantly Heal your Fennux so it can get back to breeding ASAP.
If you decide to go the route of the Healer Fennux, you simply need to purchase the item at our Fennux Main Store
rez the "Healer Den" within range of your sick Fennux, click the sick Fennux, press the "CONFIG" tab on your Fennux HUD, and then press "Instantly Heal". You should see the
Healer Fennux appear, watch it prance toward your sick Fennux, healing it just before it prances away into nothingness / sparkles.
Fennux have many different coats and traits to attempt at obtaining while breeding out offspring.
Max Size, Coat, Ears, Tail, Hair, Eyes, Whiskers, Aggression, and Dueling Tier are all things you can attempt for.
Fennux dig up recipes over time. Make sure to click on them at least once each, this will disable their particle effects and make them fully opaque, also disabling the timer set inside
of them to delete the recipe after 12-24 hours. If for some reason you feel recipes are taking up too many of your prims, look around on the third-party market for users selling
recipe organizing tools. We do not offer any support for these tools - but a good number of our users have claimed them to be worth while.
