Buildables (Breedable Robots) AFFORDABLE & MEGA FUN!

What are BUILDABLES?

BUILDABLES are robots building robots.  It is a kind of breedable in Second Life (SL).   But, as I’m sure you know, they can be expensive (food, supplies, prims), laggy and complicated genetics.   But the Buildables are affordable, super low lag, and not genetically based.

BUILDABLES are GREAT! 

Ok, lets talk money honey. . .

Lets talk about “food.” The bots need power and oil (like food) to fuel them and you can get a LIFETIME OF UNLIMITED POWER & OIL for ALL your bots for however long you have them and only cost 1000 lindens each.  So for a total of 2000 lindens for both you’ll be able to fuel ALL your bots for the rest of your life.  How amazing is that?!

Small 1 prim each, Power M&L 31p, Oil M&L 37p

Small Power & Oil are 1 prim each.  Medium & Large POWER are 31 prims each and the Medium & Large Oil facilities are 37 prims each

If you’re concerned about PRIMS the small power plants for the power & oil are ONLY ONE PRIM! YES! ONLY 1 PRIM EACH 🙂  So with only 2 prims you can fuel ALL your bots within a 100m radius.  That is almost 1/4 sim.  The bots themselves are 17 prims each.  At 17 prims each it can get costly to pay rent for the prims but there is an alternative to SL.  The creators are also providing a new virtual world for the bots and it is called EMILAC.  You can get a whole sim to put up your building factory for only 10,ooo Lindens A MONTH (smaller parcels available as well).  350 bots and the rest of the prims to decorate.  Buildables is the ONLY breedable that does this!  For more EMILAC info click here.

Super LOW LAG.   Because are bots are so low lag due to amazing scripting it allows for more of them to be active in one place before lag becomes apparent.  In SL, for example, you can have 256 active bots on one sim before it starts to cough.  I am not sure about other breedables but I do know Buildables is amongst the lowest in SL and allow for more activity than any other breedable.  If you edit any other breedable and look for script info while it’s doing stuff you’ll see it’s way higher and using far more cpu script time which is what causes lag.

Need HELP or support for your breedable?  Tiered of the impersonal attention, treated like a ticket number, and filling out forms?  Well, the group members are very helpful and so are the creators, Bill & Shane.  Yes, the creators are great people and treat everyone with respect and care.  One of them is always around or you can just send them a notecard or 2 (hey, they’re human and SL sometimes eats up notecards lol).

STARTER PACK only 299 Lindens!!!  Unlike so many other breedables with expensive starter packs this one is ONLY 299 Lindens.  You get everything you need to try  the bots.  Included in the package are:

Starter Pack 299L

2 very cool starter bots, power and oil for the pair of bots for up to 1 week, 1 building pod for 10 builds (the first 2 builds are the 2 starter bots), and 10 display crates.

What else do I need to spend money on?  The 2 things you will need to buy are building pods and display crates but once again the cost is minimal.  So you have an idea here are some pics of the options you have:

Building Pods (average 20-25L per build)

Pod 10 249LPod 25 499LOmega 1250

Display Crates (4L per crates & Gift crates 10L each)

Display Crates 25 100LDisplay Crates 100 400Lgift crate

So depending on the packages you buy the average cost in supplies you need will run about 25-30L per bot.  Can’t get any better than that.

!!!IMPORTANT INFO ON CRATING!!!  DO NOT, I REAPEAT DO NOT PICK UP A REZZED BOT INTO INVENTORY!!!   A bot MUST be crated to sell or be put into inventory.  Simply rez a “crate”, touch it and you will be asked to then touch a bot to send to the crate.  NOW touch the bot…..in the blue dialogue menu click MORE, then “GO CRATE”… The bot will then go to the crate….de-rez himself, and he will put himself into the crate!  The bots stats will then be shown above the crate for all to see!  You can now take the “crate” into your inventory, or set for sale.  When a crate is in your inventory, it actually provides the name of the type of bot in the crate for easy access to organizing your inventory.

Another really great thing about the buildables is that your crated bot will NOT lose power or oil in your inventory!  Unlike so many other breedables that will die in your inventory for lack of food the crated bots do not.  The key is CRATING.

Here is a video, it’s slightly outdated but the basics still hold true:

 

If you want to watch another video with a little info about the bots here is an interview with one of the original creators, Batrastard Panthar:

So check out one of our many exhibits throughout SL and get your starter pack.  Free starter packs are also available by contacting azalin12 inworld.

Buildables Pricing Guide & Tips

This is a suggested pricing GUIDE for most bots.  It does NOT include limited editions, rare, and newly released bots as these will have higher prices.  Always keep in mind the laws of supply and demand.  The more there is of something the lower the price and the less there is the higher the price.  Remember, it’s a game and negotiation can be part of the fun.

All levels
Fresh off the pod (meaning 0 build score & not leveled up)
35-99L
But keep in mind that anything less than 70L you’ll be losing money.

Leveled bots 70L-100L per level
(it takes time to level up and time is money, YOUR time is valuable 😉

Example at 100L/lvl
2/2 = 200
6/11= 600

11/11 = 1100
14/14 = 1400 but as this is the newest level it will be pricer 

If the materials are all at 100% or just about 100%
you can add a little more or use that as a selling point
when advertising your bots

For rare bots you need to educate yourself to find out
what is considered a rare bot.  Here’s a link to help you get started
Pricing for rare bots can be tricky.
Depends on how rare it is and the demand for it.
Both the seller and buyer really need to do their homework.
There are a couple of valuable links at the bottom.

Limited editions also depend on the market supply and demand.
The higher the series of the limited edition the lower the price.
Ex:
1/1000 about 100-250L
1/500 about 200-250L
1/250 about 200-500L

The more limited (less bots) the limited edition is the higher the price.

Newly released bots will also have a higher price tag as it is NEW.
Keep in mind that a newly released and if it’s a limited edition will also be
more expensive. Once again, EDUCATION is key here.  The blog is very informative

Tips for selling & buying

  • ATTENTION ALL SELLERS,
    • Advertise = Spam (click here for video on advertising).  
      • Spam in as many groups as you can but be careful not to over spam as you
        don’t want people ignoring you or worse yet, blocking you.
      • Group Notices are great because people can refer back to it in the group history of notices.
      • Group Chat is great as well
      • Remember to highlight something special to attract buyers
      • Don’t forget to include your landmark
    • Rent at markets
      • You will have greater exposure
      • Higher traffic than if you have your own store
      • Make an eye catching logo
      • Draw the outside in.  Meaning, lets say you rent a store, try drawing people’s attention by being strategic and placing affordable items in the front or if you can right outside your shop.  This will entice potential buyers to look inside your shop to see what other goodies you may have.
      • Rotate your inventory!  Meaning, swap out what you have out to sell every week or two.  At the very least reshuffle them in your stall or shop and try changing the prices on a few items now and then.  Think about it… if it did not sell in a week or two it most likely won’t sell later on.
      • Be UNPREDICTABLE.  You want to give shoppers something to look forward to.  Maybe have a weekly sale on a couple of items.  Or decorate with something really outlandish that no one else has done.  Make it fun for yourself lol.
      • Decorate nicely – can be simple but nice => eye catching 😉
      • STAND OUT OF THE CROWD 😉 meaning, try specializing in something. Examples, maybe specialize in 
        • limited editions
        • rare bots
        • fully leveled
        • minis 
        • specific variant (texture, paint job:)
        • certain levels
        • use your imagination 😉
    • Don’t forget marketplace  It’s a great selling tool.  Here are a few video tutorials about marketplace and how to list your items.
    • Goto AUCTIONS
      • It’s a great place to sell an item or two
        • Always tip the auctioneer if your item is sold (that’s how most auction houses work)
        • If your item sold thank the buyer, invite them to your shop or stall and pass them your landmark, which brings me to the next point…
      • It’s a great place to network as well
        • Invite people to your shop and give out your landmark (remember, your landmark is like your business card)
    • Your PROFILE PICK!
      • Put your shops and/or stalls in your profile picks 😉
  • ATTENTION ALL BUYERS,
    • don’t be afraid to negotiate 🙂   Most sellers are friendly and informative.
    • If you’re looking for something special
      • You can ask a seller
      • Ask in group chat
      • You can also spam/advertise that you are looking for something
      • Ask if they know someone who might have what you’re looking for
      • Try an area search (usually under the World tab)
        • Name – try part of the name. For example…
          • 1/   to find limited editions
        • Creator – enter the name of the creator which, in this case is Shane Neilson and you should see all crated bots come up

Buildables – How To’s & Tips

Never Know what ur gonna get

How To Build INSTRUCTIONS

1. Set bot crate on the ground , touch and choose open. The bot will then rez.
DO NOT ever take a bot into inventory without first crating it – you must crate a bot to take into inventory.

HOW TO OPEN HT OPEN

2. Open the power and the oil , and put them out. The bots will automatically feed when needed.  The power & oil facilities will fuel your bots within a 100 meter range.  And the nice thing about the bots is that you can get unlimited power and oil.

3. Bots will gather steel, alloy, silver and gold.  They gain experience as they gather materials.  Once a pair of bots has gathered at least 100 percent steel they are ready to build you another bot.

4. To build the bots must be the same type/kind, for example both should be Snorks.  But the bots do not have to be the same variant (texture, paint job)  or level, for example, they can both be snorks but one can be fire and the other a rainbow.  But, building tip 101 is that to have a chance at a limited edition the bots should be identical (same type and texture).  You must have a building pod or go to a place with a public building pod called The Omega Pod.  Rez your building pod out. Touch one red circle then touch the bot and on the menu choose go pod, then click the other red circle and send the 2nd bot to the other red circle on the pod. The green circle in the middle is where the new bot will be built.  Here’s a pic of a pair of identical snork fires on a building pod and they built a frost-e…

Gem Pod

The beauty of building is you never know what you will get. The bots can build you anything. EX: you may build with two Stompers (elephants) and get a spitfire (dragon). That’s why they are so much fun.

Building Tips coming soon

How RARE is a bot?

After the level 2 contest I started to wonder about how rare some bots really are.  It reminded me of when I first started.  I knew that a limited edition was special but I didn’t realize how special they really are.  At the time, if I built a limited edition that I was not too crazy about or for whatever crazy reason didn’t care for I just recycled them.  I used to think that limited meant there could only ever be that X number of bots on the grid at the same time.  I was so wrong.  I have never recycled another limited edition since lol.  So take it from me, DO NOT RECYCLE LIMITED EDITIONS NOR RETIRE THEM. When you retire a bot that means they cannot build (breed) with them anymore.
Sometimes I wonder who are the lucky people that have some of the super rare bots like the Spitfire Relay for Life, Chip RFLs (a male and female so only 1 of each pictured above), the Tritop Koosh Mega (only 2), or the Spyda 11/11/11 Day 1/11.   If you have some of these or other special bots it would be great to hear from you.  
To get a better idea of how rare a bot is you can look at the list of bots inworld at the main Buildables website HERE .  You can also visit the permanent display HERE . I also recently asked Bill Dabbles, one of the buildables creators, for a list of bots that cannot be built anymore that are not limited editions & limited editions that have all been built.  This is the updated list.

In Honor & Remembrance of Batrastard Panthar

I did not have the honor to meet Batrastard but in the time I have been in Buildables (a breedable in Second Life) I have only ever heard wonderful things about him.  He was one of the original creators of the breedable Buildables by Sharkclub, which are robots that build robots.  In my intrigue to find out more about him I found several things I would like to share.  I hope that by the time you are done reading if you did not know him you will feel like you have which has been my experience in my process of writing this article.  Please feel free to share your comments at the bottom.

First, lets put a picture to the face:

A very handsome man indeed in both real life and Second Life.  And for all you profile perves out there here is a pic of Bat’s profile as well:

Bats Profile

I wanted to hear from people that knew him such as Bill Dabbles (aries.westland) I spoke to Bill and he had this to share:

Bill:   Batrastard Panthar, a pull no punches man from Arizona who loved drums, music, weed, vodka, cooking with bacon grease, his motorcycle and his bass guitar, who doesn’t :).  I first met Bat through a friend of mine who told him I was a graphics guy, at this time he was creating gambling games as Sharkclub Gaming [I always wondered where the name came from] with Shane Nielson and needed someone to do the games graphics.  After seeing what I could do we started working together.  I soon realized he had a great creative mind but lacked the ability to put it into prims and textures.  That’s where I came in, and after around a year of working together and becoming friends, Bat, Shane and myself had become a force to be reckoned with in the SL [Second Life] community.  It was around the time of a breedable slump, people were on a downer about breedables as a whole and were maybe looking for something different, something better, something Buildable !   Batrastard came to me one day and said, something like “Hey Aries, you think you could make a robot?” “yeah” I replied and the original Rolly was born, unchanged throughout the whole process.  It was time for Shane to shine and do what he does best, bring my little Rolly to life. Bat and Shane worked tirelessly, night after night fine tuning the system which let me just add, Shane had never owned any kind of breedable, had no idea of the normal operations of a breedable but yet made one of the best breedable systems SL has or ever will see.  As you all know Buildables is an ever changing, developing system that brings to you variety like no other, features that captivate like no other and for those who knew him, a friend like no other.  Batrastards legacy is right here in SL each time you open a crate, build a bot, interact with a bot, trade and watch it recycle as these were his brain childs.  Those of you who knew him, knew he could be, well awkward? but he said it like it was and for the most [part] he was understood.  This is sometimes the way of genius, he always had some kind of scheme going on, be that in SL or RL.  My last communication with him was through FB when i wished him a happy birthday after we had fallen out.  I miss you buddy and I know if you’re watching from where ever you are you agree with what we’ve done to keep Buildables alive…. peace man.

There are still several people that did have the pleasure of meeting Bat such as Rocko Ghoststar.  He has a memorial dedicate to Bat (pic1) which you can visit HERE.  I also found a pic of a memorial that was dedicated to Bat at the Buildables Headquarter (pic2).  Take a look:

Songbird (gasongbird jewell) also had this to say:   Unlike some of the people who had the fortune (or misfortune, depending on the circumstances) to meet Bat, I had never seen a bot before meeting him. I had gaming machines on the sim I owned at the time, and happened to land at Sharkclub Gaming when he was working on a particular bot. He called me over, wanting to know my opinion, as Buildables was still in beta testing. I was mesmerized by the fact that you never knew what the bots were going to build, and agreed to be a beta tester that first night.  Bat liked to burn the midnight oil, as did I, and there would be many a night he would tp me over to look at a brand new build, and I felt honored he would share his prototypes with me. His enthusiasm for this unconventional breedable was infectious, and he is very much missed, at least by this bot builder. Rest in peace Bat, your bots live on.

There is a great article dedicated to Bat that you may also like to check out HERE as well as an Interview on youtube where we can actually listen to Bat and if you are still wanting to learn more about him here is the link to his RL Facebook profile

The BatRoMech was made in honor of Batrastard Panthar and recently another variant was released .November 6, 2015 was Bats birthday and would have been 46.  Bat passed in RL November 2013, not long after his birthday so to remember him a new and special variant of the BatRoMech was released.  It is limited, 1/46, it is a level 11 and not scored in the usual manner.  Here are pics of the original variant of the BatRoMech, Bat’s avi, and the new variant recently released in remembrance.  After taking a look I think we now can see the resemblance 🙂

Happy birthday and rest in peace Batrastard Panthar
