Dairy


Description

The Dairy or Farm is the main aspect of the Muffin’s Milkers system. The majority of stat tracking for livestock revolves around activities that happen at a dairy or farm.

Dairy’s have their own totals for milk, seed, feed, offspring, livestock, as well as their own farm hands.

A farm hand registered at a specific dairy are not registered at all dairies.

Owning a dairy gives you control of various roles and permissions including farm hands and banning of specific livestock. With more features being added.

All milkers are currently required to be registered at a dairy. This is because all the milk goes directly to a dairy’s tank. Each dairy has an unlimited tank called the “Dairy Tank”. 

This means there is no limit to how much milk can be collected. Each dairy has their own leaderboards and awards that are given out at the end of the month. 

There are also overall competitions that put each dairy against one another for various aspects.


Setup


Setting up a dairy requires purchasing a “Dairy Package” from the Muffin’s Milkers store.

Once purchased, an item called “MM – Dairy Registration” can be rezzed. This will give you the ability to name your dairy and set the dairy key or code. 

This dairy code is the code used to register all Muffin’s Milkers products to your dairy. The dairy code is always a 5 letter or number code of your choosing.

Once you have registered your dairy, use the “Account Management Terminal” to get a login for the website. On the website you can rename your dairy, manage farm hands, manage bans, and other aspects of your dairy.

The “Account Management Terminal” is a blue terminal located at the Muffin’s Milkers main store and can be used to reset your password or redeliver your items.

  • Farm Hand – These are your users able to feed cows, manage bans, and join livestock to your farm. They can also assist in deliveries and manual milking.

Licenses

A Dairy or Farm has a specific number of licenses per product. The system is sold as copy, so you can rez as many of the stalls or terminals as you want.

However, based on your total licenses, you can only have that many of active products running at a time. 

Say you have a base package with 5 active milker licenses and say you rez 10 milkers. You can have 5 cows milking at once, but the 6th cow will not be allowed to sit on one of the other rezzed milkers. 

There is also a 10 min timer for active license usage. This means that if in the same scenario, if one of the 5 active cows moved to a different milker, they would need to wait 10 mins to use a different stall before the license switches over.

The reason behind licenses is to keep down on server usage and to prevent using a single dairy in multiple locations. You are freed to use the dairy in multiple sims, as long as you have the licenses.

You can purchase new licenses for each product at the main Muffin’s Milker Store.

A dairy owner can see their licenes on the licences page by clicking on their dairy report page.
