Ozimals Elite Bunny Holi Pack 2015

Hello, Ozimals friends!

We hope you are enjoying the Holi Hunt thus far! (For more info about the hunt, if you missed it, please see our previous posts!) We did promise one more Holi treat, though, and here it is: the Holi Pack!

Holi Pack 2015

This special package will only be sold through the end of the hunt, Thursday, April 16, and is available at the Ozimals Bunny Main Store and at the Ozimals Satellite Shop at Shamrock Market

Inside, you'll find the following:

One Limited Edition Love/Charm Totem! This brightly decorated elephant boosts Love gain for your bunnies, and Charm gain for your Pufflings, through April 16, after which it will become a decorative collectible. The totem works on the closest sixteen pets within a 9m radius.

One Limited Edition Holi cupcake, which is a L2 Aphrodisiac food: it feeds Pufflings and/or bunnies, and boosts the rate at which eligible pets gain Love or Charm. This food will disappear when it has been used up, so we've also included a copiable decorative version which will NOT feed your pets, but DOES look delicious.

Finally, the centerpiece of the pack is the elite bunny! This nest has unlocked ears and shades, which means the baby could have any currently available shade or ear type. It is a random-gender nest. The bunny it will produce is a limited-edition holiday elite, Holi 2015, whose bright colors will bring happiness and new beginnings with this year's Holi celebration!

Happy Holi and Much <3

Magic of Oz 2015 Holi Hunt Starts Today!

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Magic of Oz presents the 2015 Holi Hunt!

The Magic of Oz 2015 Holi Hunt begins in just a few hours! Starting today at 12 noon SLT, please join us on the Magic of Oz region for hunting madness, great prizes from the Munchkinland merchants, and lots and lots of bright Spring excitement! The hunt will run through Thursday, April 16th.

This year's hunt features gifts from Silent Sparrow, Schadenfreude, katat0nik, Fallen Gods, Half-Deer, Cubic Cherry Kre-ations, Ozimals Pufflings, and Ozimals bunnies! For photos of all of the gifts, and instructions and a landmark for the hunt, please see our previous post (we've added more new pictures).

Here is some more information about the prizes available from Ozimals:

Magic of Oz 2015 Holi Hunt prize from Ozimals Bunnies

Bunny Masks are a fun way to change the look of your favorite bunnies. Each Mask Potion has a set number of charges, just like a Nest Dye. Rez the potion on or near the bunny you'd like to mask, and follow the menu prompts! Remember to pick up the bottle once the bunny has his or her mask on, so that you can use the rest of the charges. 

Masks can be removed by using the "Unmask" button in the "Config" menu when you click your bunny. Masks will NOT persist through updates.

These Holi masks will cover the actual eye color of your bunny, but will not affect the bunny's breeding genetics. There are five different designs, which are boxed in sets of four different cosmetic eye colors! These masks are transferable, so you can trade them with other hunters!

Magic of Oz 2015 Holi Hunt prize from Ozimals Pufflings

This limited edition Puffling Paragon, named Braj 2015, will only be available from this hunt! He (or she! It's a random-gender egg.) and his egg have obviously been busy splattering color powder on everything in their path, but they wear it well. Braj 2015 comes packed in a special limited edition birdhouse, too!

We'd love to see pictures including your prizes from the hunt, or pictures taken on Magic of Oz while hunting! If you put them up on Flickr, please be sure to add them to the Ozimals Flickr group!

And... stay tuned for more Holi-themed Ozimals fun...

Much <3 and happy hunting!

Magic of Oz 2015 Holi Hunt How-to!

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Magic of Oz presents the 2015 Holi Hunt

This year we are welcoming Spring by celebrating the festival of Holi. Holi commemorates the victory of good over evil, and all of the new beginnings that come with the start of Spring! A major part of the festivities is dousing people with brightly colored pigment powders, until everyone is rainbowed from head to toe. Come hunt with us, and pick up some festive Holi goodies!

The Magic of Oz 2015 Holi Hunt begins at 12:00 noon SLT on Wednesday, April 1. The hunt will run through Thursday, April 16.

There are exclusive prizes to be won from our Munchkinland merchants ~silentsparrow~SchadenfreudeHalf-Deer*katat0nik*, Cubic Cherry Kre-ationsFallen Gods Inc., and, of course, Ozimals! 

Here is how the hunt works:

Once the hunt opens on Wednesday, when you teleport to Magic of Oz, you'll see a sign at the landing point advertising the hunt. Click the sign, and you'll receive a brass platter to wear on your head. 

Little pots of brightly colored pigments will appear all over the sim, in hundreds of hiding places. When you find one, click it! (You may have to right-click and "touch") It will vanish, then reappear balanced on your platter.




When you have collected six pots of pigment, a menu will pop up asking you to choose a shop whose prize you would like to receive.




Once you select a shop, the little pots on your platter will vanish, and you will receive a large pot of pigment to hold. Wearing it, go to the shop you have chosen in Munchkinland. You'll see an overflowing platter of pigment pots in the shop!




Creep up close to it--within two meters--and click the pot of pigment you are holding. The shop's platter will give you your prize! If a merchant has put more than one prize in their platter, it will randomly pick one for you. Once you have your prize, you can play again by refilling the platter on your head by finding six more pots. Each large pot of pigment, however, will only work once, and only for the shop you chose from the menu.

When you are done, you can use the platter's menu to make it into a collectible decoration, with color-change pigments!

Here are pictures of the prizes to be won from our participating merchants!

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Happy Saint Patrick's Day from Ozimals! This year we are celebrating with a new special green bunny elite, with the chance at two limited-edition traits!

The Leprechaun 2015 elite pack!

The Leprechaun 2015 elite bunny pack is available at the Ozimals Bunny Main Store and at the Ozimals Satellite Shop at Shamrock Market. The box contains one random-gender Leprechaun 2015 elite nest, with unlocked ears and shade. This means that these nests will produce Leprechaun 2015 elite bunnies with any currently available shade and ear type. These bunnies have a chance at carrying two limited-edition genetic traits, which can be passed to their offspring. Also in the box is a 30-day limited-edition Level 2 Standard Omni food. The Leprechaun 2015 elite pack will only be available through the end of March.

It may still not feel so for many of us, but Spring *IS* coming. There are many many different ways, worldwide, that the beginning of the season of growth and new life is celebrated, and we've picked a colorful one to observe this year... stay tuned for details!

Last chance for Beloved elites!

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Today, Saturday, February 28th, is the LAST day to pick up your Beloved limited edition bunny elite pack! The vendors will be disappearing Sunday morning, so this is your last chance! Grab yours from the Ozimals main store or from the Ozimals satellite store at Shamrock Marketplace.

The box contains one random-gender Beloved 2015 elite nest, with unlocked ears and shade. This means that these nests will produce Beloved 2015 elite bunnies with any currently available shade and ear type. These heart-speckled bunnies have a chance at carrying two limited-edition genetic traits, which can be passed to their offspring. Also in the box is a 30-day limited-edition Aphrodisiac food; Aphrodisiac food is a level 2 food that provides a 5% speed boost in Love gain for bunnies and Charm gain for Pufflings.

Thanks so much for sharing so many photos of the 3.4 bunnies on Flickr! We'll be posting soon about St. Patrick's Day and more forthcoming events, so stay tuned--though, meanwhile, since we see many of you out and about at gacha events--check out Gacha Minion, a new project from Malk and Candy that makes sorting, trading, and selling your gacha goodies quick and fun!

Ozimals Bunny Update 3.4!

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Welcome to Bunny Update 3.4! Please read these notes carefully before you begin updating! 


Ozimals Bunny Update 3.4


Update 3.4 is a non-mandatory update. What this means is that your bunnies will continue eating for two weeks without being updated, though each food you have rezzed out will message you once a day to remind you to update. If your bunnies are not updated to 3.4, they will not be able to breed with updated or new bunnies. Remember, a bunny takes 72 hours to go from 0% hunger to 100% and hibernation, so you have two weeks plus three days to update... just don't forget!

If your bunnies do hibernate, all you need to do is give them food, wait 24 hours for them to come out of hibernation, and then use the 3.4 updater.


The Bunnybury Exclusive Rare Bunny Nest will be updated on update day. The Bunnybury Random Nest and the Bunnybury Nest With Increased Chance of Recessives will be updated two weeks from update day, on Monday, February 16th. Bunnybury Random Nests and Bunnybury Nests With Increased Chance of Recessives bought from the vendor before that date will be version 3.3 nests with no chance of v3.4 genetic traits.

Additions:
* New genetic traits!
* Beloved elite bunny!
* New Bunnybury exclusive bunny!
* Ozimals Xing signs!




New genetic traits!

As of this update, new starter packs purchased from Ozimals (Warren Packs, Pair Packs, and Pet Packs, from the Ozimals Bunny Main Store, the Ozimals Satellite Shop at Shamrock Market, or the Second Life Marketplace) have the chance of carrying a range of new genetic traits.



Beloved elite bunny!


Beloved elite bunny pack!

The Beloved elite bunny pack is available at the Ozimals Bunny Main Store and at the Ozimals Satellite Shop at Shamrock Market. The box contains one random-gender Beloved 2015 elite nest, with unlocked ears and shade. This means that these nests will produce Beloved 2015 elite bunnies with any currently available shade and ear type. These heart-speckled bunnies have a chance at carrying two limited-edition genetic traits, which can be passed to their offspring. Also in the box is a 30-day limited-edition Aphrodisiac food; Aphrodisiac food is a level 2 food that provides a 5% speed boost in Love gain for bunnies and Charm gain for Pufflings. The Beloved elite pack will only be available through the end of February.


New Bunnybury exclusive bunny!

The Bunnybury Exclusive Rare Bunny Nest has been updated for version 3.4 with a new bunny. This bunny's eyes and fur are exclusive to these nests and will not be available from other bunnies. The previous Bunnybury Exclusive traits, Envy eyes and Banded White fur, are now retired. Bunnybury Exclusive Rare Bunny Nests are now updated, so any Exclusive Rare nest bought from the vendor will be version 3.4 and have the new Exclusive genetic traits.



Ozimals Xing signs!


2015 Ozimals Crossing sign!

Way back in the mists of ancient time, there was a weekly award given to pet owners who displayed our old "Bunny Xing" signs near their bunnies. We've updated the sign to include Pufflings as well - and made it mesh, so it's only 1LI now - and have included one in the 3.4 update box, along with simple instructions to be eligible for the award! Much simpler than the old version--just rez and click!




****************IMPORTANT NOTES****************


1. THE UPDATE PROCESS WILL:

    REQUIRE 22 PRIMS FREE ON LAND
    BREAK BONDS
    RESET PRICING AND
    RESET HOME POSITION!

Please check that you restore bonds, reset home near food and reprice if you had bunnies set for sale.

2.  If your update totem gets stuck on a bunny (after 5 minutes, it hasn't completed)  please TAKE THE CRATE into your inventory and delete the white bunny underneath.  Copy the crate prim description number.  File a support ticket ( http://support.ozimals.com ) and include that crate number for a replacement bunny.  Do not delete the crate until you receive your replacement bunny.

Once you pick up the crate and delete the white bunny, your update totem should move on to the next bunny in range.

*****BUNNY FOOD, THE UPDATE, AND YOU!*****

The food does NOT get updated itself; it only communicates to you the need to update your bunnies. PLEASE NOTE!! You do NOT need to buy new food!  Once you update your bunnies, they will eat any recent version of food just fine.

FOLLOW THESE DIRECTIONS  FOR A SMOOTH UPDATE PROCESS!

2. Prepare your update area:

A.  Designate an "update area" someplace on the land you own.
B.  Rez your updater at the center of the update area.

C. It is important to only rez ONE updater!
D.  Pick up ALL third party scripted products (monitors, dispensers, servers, rings, etc.) and any other heavily scripted items in the area. These items can slow down or even prevent the update process from beginning or completing correctly. This is VERY IMPORTANT.

3. Update your bunnies:
    A.  Turn bunny movement off. Take a moment to record the bunny's ID if you do not already have it recorded.
    B.  Pick up your bunnies one at a time (do NOT pick up in a group!)
    C.  Rez up to 10 bunnies in your update area. The updater affects bunnies within a 9m radius (18 m circle with totem in center)
    D.  There will be a short delay before the updater begins; please be patient! :)
    E.  The bunnies will update one by one. A crate will appear over them and the process will be shown in hovertext above the box.
    F.  When all updates are completed, remove the updated bunnies from the update area, and put down the  next 10 un-updated bunnies.
    G.  Continue this process until your entire warren is updated.
    H.  After the update is completed,  RE-REZ ALL YOUR FOOD so it will detect that the bunnies have been updated. If you use any dispenser or server system, you need to remove the food from those systems and rerezz them.
