The Mama Allpa Conception HUD and Service

Virtual pregnancies in Second Life are nothing new. These services have been in Second Life for some time. Trouble is, the "tummytalkers" they have are often irritating to other residents nearby. And the setup in the hospital resembling an artificial insemination service may not be exactly ideal to those seeing a pregnancy as starting with an act of intimacy between a couple.

Yt Recreant offers an alternative with a more realistic beginning for virtual pregnancies, as well as not having the feedback that others hear: Mama Allpa, "Mama Allpa is a conception HUD system. It addresses people who want to mate in SL with the 'consequence' of having babies. Of course I am a bit biased about the product options (grin), but I can rightly say that my product is the market leader, by far, and also highly configurable."

Yt got the idea for Mama Allpa when she looked into virtual pregnancies on Second Life. She checked the services already on the market, and found them lacking. So she created the conception HUD. "I had for example all these questions that simply occur when one commits to something that lasts longer than a day, like, how much time is available, how long do I want this commitment, how realistic do I want it to be, and all that."

Yt described it as, "a couple HUD system, people can see the other gender, by a small sign on their display. so if you are in a club, and wear it, you can identify others wearing it too. That saves the awkward question … then, when male and female mate, the success of conception depends on some factors, like how often did the couple have sex. But a lot more so, such as in which stage of her cycle is she? The HUD is also configurable … cycle and gestation length adjust automatically … as well as the option to multiple births."

The Mama Allpa HUD is not too expensive, at 249 each, "the system itself comes without any 'hidden sidecosts.' … As I have had the intention to make pregnancy and delivery of babies an affordable potion for everyone," Yt explained, "the HUD also comes with support for prenatal care and delivery, for free, supplied by a team of 50 doctors." The doctors work without charge to clients at private locations, "plus we also provide a clinic here at our island." The Mama Allpa team has personel fluent in Spanish and other languages besides English, "from all time zones and many countries."

The HUD also has the option to suspend fertility, as if the male was using condoms or the female on the pill. There's also a "multiposer" built in, "if one has the mood but not the place (grin). The poser is loaded with mocap animations."

Of when the pregnancy comes to an end, "when the days are up, the HUD simply sends a message, that the days are up, that the HUD now stops counting, and just waits with the delivery, when everything is set. So the mother-to-be can deliver her baby at any stage past month 6 when she and her partner, and whoever else they want around, have the time." The gestation and cycle are also highly configurable.

There is one feature found in other virtual pregnancies that Mama Allpa does not have and will never have: "tummy talkers." "Mama Allpa does not make tummy talkers. Third party people make them. … I would be (pause) pretty much wondering if my belly talked (grin) however, i understand the motivation why people want them as they need kind of an advice, how to do what in a pregnancy. But there, i prefer the 'advisory' that comes the silent way with Mama Allpa. Which is the only HUD system of its sort that does so."

Yt then razzed a box on the ground, "this box for example, picked this one randomly," inside was a display on what Week 9 or a pregnancy is like, suggesting the lady might feel sleepy and have mood swings, "It says, one should see to drink a lot of water and stuff. This box holds then a freebie item, a glass of water (grin), just a small thing. Other boxes hold some wardrobe, games for playing with the partner, cuddle pillows, and more. It's like each week they get a surprise."

Yt mentioned another detail. In real life, "if you are pregnant, you want an ultrasound of course also done by your doc. Mama Allpa is the only system that gives you personalized ultrasound printouts with your name and week on them." She razzed a random one from her inventory, "So, upon examination the doctor just presses 'print' and then there comes the picture, with development, stage, name and week, also for free."

Of the people who use the conception HUD, "there are many different people, and they all have this for different motivations. Some do it for some extra fun. Some do it to 're-live' the parenthood they had in real-life for here. Some do it because they are not having kids in real life," whether from choice or infertility in real life, which can be emotionally devastating to some women, whom may find therapeutic value in a virtual pregnancy, "so really, the motivations vary greatly."

"The support group, which holds roundabout 5000 active people, shows that there are really all different sorts of people. (There are) very 'kinky' ones, and then there are also very normal families." Some are from role-play areas, while some are "who do not roleplay at all, but use this as (an) add-on to their daily SL." The people include all age groups from young to old, as well as all kinds of species of avatars, "it's not really nailed down to … 'humans having kids.' "

"Another big point is also the RL/SL (time) conversion rate. In Second Life, the SL weather system changes day & night in an interval of 4 hours. this value is set 'just so' by Linden Lab. So, the HUD comes with 1 day in SL is 4 hours real-life. But one can change it, from having one SL day = 2 hours up to 1 SL day = 24 hours. And one can change that at any given time, without harming an ongoing pregnancy. That way people can be pregnant really as long as they want, as fast or as slow as they want."

Of the conception HUD, the unit purchased is ready to wear without packing. Upon wearing it, the activation of Xcite scripts is announced. Two sex symbols, male & female appear (Mars & Venus) if there's someone of the opposite sex nearby also using the HUD. But if the wearer is alone, only his/her symbol appears. If a female is willing, the male's HUD will tell him of the girl "opening" herself to him, and no longer being open, "no one except the two get any notices."

The HUD itself also has an option of six languages to appear in. A nonhuman can also set it to his/her species.

A one of a kind, and well supported, virtual pregnancy service in Second Life.

The Main Mama Allpa store can be found at Mama Allpa (156, 202, 28) (Adult). Besides the conception HUD up for sale, there are a number of other vendors from other businesses selling wares at the store. While some are clearly of an adult nature, some are more family-friendly, such as maternity wear. More information about Mama Allpa can be found at the Mama Allpa Times blog, or the help website (Click Here) (note, both sites have an occasional nude picture, so careful about reading from work).

  1. Do both partners need the HUD, or can it work if just the female partner does?

    1. Both Partners require the HUD, there is a male and female HUD available

      Delete
    2. it is possible to set yourself pregnant manually via the setup/detailed/condition option. This will not record any paternity data in the hud but it is an option if you want to simulate a pregnancy without the use of a male hud.

  2. Don't mean to e funny or anything. Not sure how to as this question ...but is is completely realistic in that does the guy need to, well for a lack of a better way to say it without seeming crude ... release the junk in order to get pregnant or no?

    1. yes, the male ejaculation is needed, but with the hud it is a click of the button...

      Delete
    2. The hud will work with any penis (or even without one) - There is integration with several different penis brands (including xCite, Sensations, Dark Delights, Real Penis, Midnight Lotus and Explicit Language - With those brands when it is time to ejaculate you can choose the option from either the MA Hud OR from the penis hud and it will trigger the option for both systems (including the particle effect from the penis and the release message to the female MA hud).

      With other penis brands it will still work just fine however you will have to select the MA Hud to trigger the release AND the penis hud if you want the particle effects (or any other features from the penis itself).

    1. It is up to you, you personalize your settings as you see fit.

    2. we support multiple species and as such you can alter the length of the pregnancy and length of the cycle. - the default settings are "typical" human settings.

  4. How do you have twins with the hud.. does it give you a choice when deliverary is time or hiow??

    1. it is possible to set yourself pregnant manually and in doing that you can select the number of babies in the pregnancy. There is also an option for defining the odds for having "multiples" - the 'default' setting for that is 3% (the typical RL odds of having multiples) however you can increase that as high as 100% if you choose. Also even if you don't have twins at the time of conception the hud will still allow you to start a second delivery (or third or 9th or 27th...) - it simply asks at the end of a delivery if you want to do another one.

  5. do you have to set the baby up or does it automatically start birthing from your vagina itself??

  6. the prim baby included in the hud is normally positioned correctly automatically for 'most' avatars however since avatars come in lots of sizes and shapes it isn't always going to be perfectly aligned.

    there IS a prim baby (Neko and Human options available), after you get to the third trimester of your pregnancy you can will have a "pregnancy" menu on the hud with a "Test Delivery" option - you can use that to run through a delivery in "test mode" if you want to verify that everything is going to line up properly.

  7. I have become pregnant (though I haven't checked yet...so impregnated would be the better term) wearing hud 12.2 and have after that updated to the latest hud 12.4 (Sorry if those numbers are wrong, btw), am I still impregnated or has switching the hud to the newest one canceled it ?
    And if so will it help to switch back ?

    Also, just curious, does it give your baby a gender ?

    ZZ.

  9. I don't know what to do. It seems my avatar can never get off her period and ovulate/be fertile. I don't know if its a glitch or what. Someone please help me! :[

  10. Can you 'hide' your HUD from others? Or can they automatically tell you have one? Or is it as simple as detaching it? I kinda don't want everyone to know I use it.

  12. The paternity test didn't work at the mama allpa store. I had the father there and he is my allpa partner but it said nothing about who the daddy is. How do I get it to indicate he is the father with the paternity test?

  13. I think Deciduan HUD was around long before Mama Allpa and is WAY better, but not nearly as common since it doesn't spam the malls like Mama Allpa does. Mama Allpa just looks like a copy of it. It's also cheaper.

    Does this statement mean that you are pregnant?

  15. Like Jonathan's question above, I'm on day 8 and still menstrating. I'm human, a normal 28 day cycle, a tolerance of 0. When am I going to ovulate already?

  16. The new update for the mama allpa hud now currently works with AERO's.

  17. I know the hud comes with a prim baby, but i was wondering if it is "reusable" as in I can get pregnant and birth prim babies repeatedly? I know there are pregnancy systems out there that have a reusable feature that allows for the creation of multiple prim babies, just wondering if this one works that way too.
