Fourth of July Weekend & Bunny Update 3.6!

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Less than a week remains until bunny update 3.6 and the summer bunny gacha machines! We're excited, and hope all of you are, too! We'll be updating on Monday, July 6th, but this is a non-mandatory update, which means that your bunnies will continue to eat for two weeks if not updated... so don't worry if you have vacation plans.

We will have limited support this weekend (Friday July 3 - Monday July 6) due to the Independence Day holiday, so that our employees may grill things and marvel at explosions with their friends and families. Tickets will be answered as soon as we can get to them upon our return--thanks for being patient!

Stay tuned on Monday for lots of important information about 3.6 and the summer gachas...

Summer in Oz--and Market Mutant Madness!

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Summertime is on its way to the land of Oz! The Pufflings in the Emerald City Royal Gardens & Aviary are enjoying the tropical parts of the gardens, hopping around in the bright hibiscus flowers and golden sunshine, while the bunnies of Oz play on the beaches and in the summer meadows throughout the empire.

To help celebrate the season, Puffling starter eggs (any egg purchased directly from Ozimals, now or previously, that has not been rezzed before now) have a chance at a summery new eye!

In July, travelers from all directions will converge on the Emerald City, bringing exotic goodies from every corner of the land of Oz... and we'll celebrate that beginning Monday, July 6th, with this year's Summer Gacha: Caravan! There will be a bunny update that day, too, so that the gacha bunnies can share their special genetic traits with the bunnies they meet this summer--we will have much more information soon!

We hope everyone is enjoying the new furs and eyes from update 3.5--there are still more to find, but thanks to everyone who has posted pictures of new discoveries to the Ozimals Flickr group thus far!

If you'd like to see some unique, spectacular bunnies in PERSON, Krazy Kritters Multi Breed Market is hosting a mutant bunny show this weekend, with prizes for the winners in several categories.

Krazy Kritters Mutant Show

You can see all of the entrants at the pavilion at Krazy Kritters, and vote for your favorite--but there's still time to enter, too! (There is an info-giver with contest information at the Krazy Kritters auction area.) This event only runs through this weekend, and winners will be announced Sunday, June 21, at 3:00 pm SLT.

Ozimals Bunny Update 3.5!

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Welcome to Bunny Update 3.5! Please read these notes carefully before you begin updating! 


Ozimals Bunny Update 3.5


Update 3.5 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 3.5, 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 3.5 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, June 15th. Bunnybury Random Nests and Bunnybury Nests With Increased Chance of Recessives bought from the vendor before that date will be version 3.4 nests with no chance of v3.5 genetic traits.

Additions:
* New genetic traits!
* New Bunnybury exclusive bunny!




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.

* New Bunnybury exclusive bunny!

The Bunnybury Exclusive Rare Bunny Nest has been updated for version 3.5 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, Kaleidoscope eyes and Strawberry Paintbrush fur, are now retired. Bunnybury Exclusive Rare Bunny Nests are now updated, so any Exclusive Rare nest bought from the vendor will be version 3.5 and have the new Exclusive genetic traits.



****************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.

Ozimals Bunny Update 3.5 Coming June 1!

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Heads up! Next Monday, June 1, we'll be updating the bunnies to version 3.5. This update adds a heap of new genetic traits and a new Bunnybury Exclusive bunny!

Update 3.5 is a non-mandatory update. What this means is that your un-updated bunnies will continue to eat for two weeks from update day, but will not be able to breed with updated or new bunnies--this just gives you a little more time to plan your updating! Of course, we do recommend keeping all of your bunnies updated as soon as you get the chance, just so you don't forget anyone.

Ozimals has been nominated--again!--for "Best Breedable" in the Avi Choice Awards! Please take a moment to visit their site and vote for Ozimals--you can vote once every 24 hours!

See you on Monday!

Conductor Bassman and the Ozimals Crossing sign!

Hello, Ozimals friends!

The 3.4 Bunny Update box contained an Ozimals Crossing sign for you! Active breeders and pet owners can use it to decorate their pets' homes... and win prizes!

Conductor Bassman elite bunnies with an Ozimals Xing sign!

The prize for this contest is a very limited elite bunny, Conductor Bassman. Only twelve of these bunnies will be awarded--two already have been, so there are ten left. Each winner may choose the shade and ear type of his or her prize bunny!

How to use the sign:

Rez out your sign and decide where you would like it to go. Once you've positioned it where you want it, click it once, and it will send its location to us. If you want to move it after you have done this, simply move it, click it, and follow the directions it will give you in chat; this will update your sign's location.

Only you, the sign's owner, can set or reset its location. If other avatars click it, it will give them Ozimals landmarks.

When your sign registers a location, that is your entry for the contest. Registering more signs will overwrite your location; you will still just have ONE entry--so having extra signs out does not boost your chances!

Once a month, we'll select a sign's location at random, and that sign's owner will receive a Conductor Bassman bunny from Ozimals. (This is why it is important to reset its location if you move it; if your location is picked but there's no sign there, we'll move on to the next potential winner!)

Good luck!

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!
