If you need a location to update your bunnies, Ozimals Orientation islands have a sandbox type update area where you can rez your bunnies in a quiet area and chat with other bunny peeps while you do it! (Updating bunnies only here, please don't build!) SLURLs below:

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

1. Due to a safeguard put in to make the update process smoother and faster, when your bunnies have been updated they MAY appear "chubby". Don't panic! Simply re-rez them and they will pop back to normal with no problem.

2. PLEASE NOTE!!!!!!! THE UPDATE PROCESS WILL BREAK BONDS, RESET PRICING AND RESET HOME POSITION! Please check that you restore bonds, set home position next to food and reprice if you had bunnies set for sale.

3. 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 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 and water! Once you update your bunnies, they will eat any version of food just fine.

FOLLOW THESE DIRECTIONS FOR A SMOOTH UPDATE PROCESS!

Preparing to Update:

1. Get the updater. Available on the Marketplace and these locations:

*Ozimals

*Magic of Oz

*Ozimals Satellite Store

*Lawst Paradise

* Hope, Texas

* Ozimals Orientation

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. 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.

***IMPORTANT NOTE***
The updater includes a "Sim Grade" that checks several factors on your sim to determine if you can easily and successfully update bunnies in the location where the updater is rezzed. If your sim qualifies, the updater will simply begin to update your bunnies. If the score is too low (the minimum is 0.35) then the updater will show a hovertext number of your sim's present level in real time so you can make adjustments to get your sim to the minimum score. The simplest method is to pick up scripted objects that are not bunnies in the area. If that is not sufficient, begin picking up bunnies until the sim grade number is above 0.40. If you cannot raise your sim numbers high enough using these methods, you can also take bunnies to a sandbox to update them. ***MOST PEOPLE WILL NOT NEED TO DO THIS***

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 30 second delay before the updater begins, (or longer for homesteads) 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 AND WATER so they will detect that the bunnies have been updated. If you use any dispenser or server system, you need to remove the food/water from those systems and rerezz them.

PLEASE NOTE: There will *not* be a Community Meeting this week because of update and Halloween preparations. We will resume the meetings on Monday November 1st at the normal times.
