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!

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!
