Due to the overwhelming influx of stray kittens we have received as a result of the displacement of so many households in the gulf and fertile plains oil disasters, we have opened up a Pet Adoption store.
You can now adopt kittens for the nominal price of 249 Tau which includes a free pet bed!
We would like to highlight the point that owning a new kitten is a big responsibility though. These poor abandoned kittens have had a rough go of it and will need a lot of care and nurturing. They will want to be fed at least twice a day and to be petted as often as possible. They love the attention!
You can purchase milk in baby bottles in the Pet Adoptions store under the Pet Accessories tab. Also note that you will need to clean their pet bed when it gets dirty. If you neglect your kitten it will begin to get unhappy and if you neglect it for over 4 or 5 days it will probably run away!
Hopefully you will take good care of your kitten and it will grow into a happy, well-adjusted adult cat!
Please note that if your Emotional Value is too low you will not be able to take care of your kitten! So, make sure you eat a lot of strawberries and salads high in Vitamin E.

Major Oil Explosion has Hit TirNua
The leak from the explosion which occurred sometime yesterday, looks to be the size of China. Authorities are investigating the exact location of the explosion which has gravely impacted the plateau of the fertile plains region. Emergency response teams have been successful so far at containing the leak from hitting the lake.
In order to see this disaster on the map you will need to make sure to be in the Environment Mode on the map.
The response teams are calling for as many volunteers as possible to come help save the wildlife and orchards. Many farmers are gravely concerned as to how this will effect the harvesting of fruit crops this year.
Experts have not been able to make a specific statement on what the potential damages to crops will be yet. All they are saying at this point, is “there was an outpouring of volunteers who came together to save the gulf region after last week’s oil spill. The support and help was tremendous, we are hoping to see the same kind of support here in the fertile plains.”
Authorities, are encouraging those who find birds to place them in their inventory and take them to one of the rescue sites springing up to help save the wildlife. The oiled birds specifically will need cleaning in order to save them.
The more birds rescued on a lot the better the ground environmental reading for that lot will be and eventually it will be restored to its pre-oil leak state.
So, please come help save the birds and the environment!
Tool to Manage Carbon Footprint
We have a new tool for you to track and monitor your CFP on a day to day basis. On the persona web page, a tab has been added for CFP.
Here you will see your daily and monthly history as well has your base and accumulated CFP on objects you own. To find out more about how base and accumulated CFP are calculated refer to the help panel and search for Carbon Footprint (read about new feature below).
Everyone can see everyone’s daily and monthly readings but only each individual will see their own object CFP. The CFP panel will display which objects you own that have the best and the worst CFP.
No More Overwatering Plants
Have you been finding yourself locking up your home to prevent newbies from over watering your plants and crops and killing them on you?
Well, fret no more, you no longer need to worry about yourself or anyone else killing your plants by over watering them. They can’t be over watered! Of course, your plants will still die if they are not cared for by not watering on time.
We are testing this out to see if this helps the social scene in TirNua. We realized this might be one of the reasons so many lots are closed to the public. We are looking for ways to make TirNua more social and as usual we are looking to our players for feedback and other suggestions on this topic.
