It’s Smoothie Time!

September 18th, 2010 by TirNua Audrey Leave a comment Share on Facebook

At last, the fruit you have been storing up in your Food Processor and Refrigerators has a use! With the new Juice Bar (which is a sneak peek actually), you can mix up your own nutritional fruit smoothies and sell them to others. Currently, you have 5 smoothie recipes to make. Here are the recipes:

  1. Orange Juice: orange
  2. Apple Juice: apple
  3. Strawberry: strawberry
  4. Strawberry-Banana Juice: banana, strawberry
  5. Suicide: coffee, purple orange, red orange, blue orange, corn, strawberry

Each recipe has a different nutritional value that will boost up EMP energies. Mousing over the Juice Bar will provide you with a tooltip of the contents in the Juice Bar and how much nutrition is in each drink. To use the Juice Bar, you will need to hook it up to a battery and have already prepared fruit stored in a Food Processor Station or in a Refrigerator.

The fruit must be processed before it can be added to the Juice Bar. To process the fruit, you will need to have fruit in crates accessible on your lot and a Food Processor Station (the fancy hutch preparation station found in the food store). Once the processing station or refrigerator has fruit stored in it all you need to do is add it to the Juice Bar. Coffee: is the only commodity that can be added directly to the Juice Bar. In this case, all you need is a coffee depot with coffee cans close by.

Things to note (since this a sneak peek):

  1. The pricing is hard coded for now at 10 TAU per drink
  2. The better the EMP values are if your Juice Bar is located in the Kitchen Zone
  3. The better the EMP values are the higher the juice maker’s Mv is
  4. The Juice Bar is not scannable yet

Give your Cat a Name Just like buying persona name plates you can purchase a unique name for your cat. To do this, go to the shopping panel and select the ‘TirNua Names’ link. Under the search results, select ‘Persona Names’. You will be presented with a dialog box whereby you can search on the availability of a name. If the name is available you can purchase it for a 6 or 12 month lease.

Note: you will need to purchase a “persona” name plate and have the name before you can change the cat’s name. If you don’t have any name plates available to be applied, nothing happens when you click on the cat and click “Change Name”.


  1. Cat routing and sleeping issues
  2. Name plate purchase no longer requires a re-log in to see them
  3. Basic Social Badge
  4. Refrigerators and Food Processing Station only respond to retrieve if they have the commodity in storage

Residents - don’t forget to check the VIP store. Have fun drinking smoothies!

Facebook Feeds

March 3rd, 2009 by TirNua Interior Designer Leave a comment Share on Facebook


We send facebook mini feeds like the one shown above to show you and your friends where the action is in Tirnua!

Example: “Lee has been trading in Tirnua! Their persona Tirnua Lee exchanged goods with Andrea at Lee’s Hermitage

We don’t send these often and we try to pick the most interesting thing to send. At present, this means that we look at what you’ve been up to over the course of a few hours and may need to send out the feed while you are offline. If you want to receive feeds like this, please make sure you have the following settings in facebook!


1. In the top right of your facebook page, hover over “Settings” and choose “Application Settings”

You should see a line that looks like this for each application. 

Click on the “Edit Settings” link on the Tirnua line.

Then, we’d love if you clicked the first box below to let us send you feeds events:

That’s it!

Maybe in the comments you can let us know ideas for cool feeds that you’d like to see! 





Play in Tirnua through Facebook

November 9th, 2008 by TirNua Sarah Leave a comment Share on Facebook

This is a quick How To:

Log in to facebook and then click on any facebook feed telling you about Tirnua or, for now, this link:

You will be presented with this standard screen to add the app and then you will see this:

If you already have a Tirnua account please select the second option. Otherwise, for people that are new to Tirnua, the first link with create their account for them, create a persona and log you directly into the game to start playing straight away!

We are working on the whole flow of the app so that it is more intuitive for these brand new users - we realize that things have a ways to go on that front! Your feedback is welcomed and appreciated.

Bookmarking the Tirnua App:

Unfortunately facebook does not automatically add the app so that you can get to it easily in future but here are some things you can do.

To see at the bottom of your browser while in faceboook, go to Edit applications page, click Edit on the Tirnua line, and Bookmark Tirnua:

I then clicked that very bottom left Applications button and dragged Tirnua to the top of the applications list so that it would also show on my Home page in facebook like so. 

If you want to log in from the tirnua website you can now click the Connect with Facebook button:

I’ll write a few more posts about privacy controls, how to invite friends, etc.,

Please send us your comments and suggests - we really want to make this a pleasing and easy experience for new users coming to us through facebook.
