Ozimals Update 1.8A

Greetings, Bunny fans!

/-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Patch Notes 1.8A -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-\

More information can be found in the Community Meeting notes.


>>New Genetics! We've added new genetics to the Ozimals pool, and they are available through starter packs at the store or on Marketplace. As always, new version starter bunnies have the *chance* of carrying the new genes.

>>New Elites, both Natural and Event Elites and higher Elite chances! The chance of achieving an elite bunny has been increased from 1.7, though the parent bunnies must still meet all of the requirements. Keeping bunnies on Level 3 food throughout their breeding lives still *doubles* the new chance!

>>Grow and Shrink! New potions, available from the Ozimals shops and on Marketplace, allow you to change the size of a bunny.

>>The "Euphoria Curse" has been dispelled! If you've been watching chat carefully lately, you've seen a lot of people posting their Vitality, Refreshment, and Ardor elders. With this update, we've given your Euphoria bunnies a chance to "re-roll" as something different; keep reading for details.

>>New speedy updater totems!

** Bunny Carnival Elites! To celebrate the Ozimals Bunny Carnival, any nest created by your bunnies AND kindled between 12:00:01 AM SLT (one second after midnight on the morning of Sunday, July 31st) and 11:59:59 PM SLT (one second before midnight on the evening of Sunday, August 14th) can potentially produce a Carnival Elite, regardless of breeding.

Don't forget! If you would like to bypass your chance at a Carnival Elite, you are given an option to choose "No Elite" in the kindling menu, and you may simply confirm that you don't want that nest to have a chance at a holiday Elite.

There will also be a Carnival Elite--different from the ones available through breeding--exclusively available at the Ozimals shops and through the SL Marketplace on Tuesday, 7/26. The bunny will have the chance of carrying a limited edition eye, available only from this bunny.

**There are TWO DIFFERENT UPDATERS in the 1.8A Update package. Please read carefully below before you begin updating, as each bunny can only be updated once--if you use the wrong updater, you will not be able to then go back and use the other.

Ozimals Euphoria Update Totem 1.8A: This special updater, when used on Elders/Sages/Matriarchs/Patriarchs of Euphoria, will "re-roll" their type. (Of course, they have a 1 in 4 chance of getting Euphoria again.) This updater is safe to use on other bunnies; it will not change non-Euphorias, and has no ill effect on bunnies with generations remaining. As usual, this updater will work on any version bunny who is not in hibernation.

Ozimals Bunny Update Totem 1.8A: This is the standard updater, and will update any not-hibernating bunny of any version to 1.8. Elder types will not change. If you have Euphorias that you would like to KEEP as Euphorias, use this updater for them.

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


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

2. 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.

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.

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:

Ozimals Orientations 2
Ozimals Orientations 3
Ozimals Orientations 4


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.


Preparing to Update:

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


*Magic of Oz

*Ozimals Orientation

*Ozimals Satellite Store (PG Location)

*Lawst Paradise

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.

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.
