Welcome to the Pufflings!

Ozimals presents the Puffling Present Pursuit running from Thursday, December 22 - Thursday, January 12!

According to the Royal Historian of Oz, the Pufflings were an enchanted gift from Glinda, the Good Witch, to Ozma, the Empress of Oz, on her birthday. Magically brought to life from trays and trays of cream puffs, the Pufflings are a royal favorite in the palace gardens in the Emerald City. Their countless combinations make the hatching of each new egg an exciting event that Ozma attends with glee. Happy to share the wondrous gift with all, the colonies of Pufflings now extend far beyond the garden walls of the Emerald City. In fact they extend beyond the borders of Oz itself, all the way into the Second Life grid!

Help us welcome Ozma's Pufflings to SL by participating in the Puffling Present Pursuit! The premise is a simple one: every time you purchase a product marked with the "Pufflings Present Pursuit" special logo from one of the stores participating in the hunt, along with the item you bought, you will receive a hunt card (a HUD) and instructions on how to redeem the hunt card for a present from one of the Pufflings' favorite creators!

Check out the amazing list of creators helping to welcome the Pufflings to their new home at Ozimals!

Introducing Jingles 2011

Introducing Jingles, one of the Winter 2011 Holiday Elite, exclusively available at the Ozimals shops and on the Marketplace only through January 2nd.  Also in the pack: a special limited edition Level 2 Standard food, two 3% Gingerbread Energy Treats, and a 10x Jingles nest dye.

Don't forget! Any nest created by your bunnies AND kindled between 12:01 am SLT on  Monday, December 19th and 11:59 pm SLT on Monday, January 2nd can potentially produce a Winter Holiday Elite, regardless of breeding. The nest must be both created and kindled during that period. Remember, if you would like to bypass your chance at a Winter Holiday 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.

**Winter Holiday Elites! Any nest created by your bunnies AND kindled between 12:01 am SLT on  Monday, December 19th and 11:59 pm SLT on Monday, January 2nd can potentially produce a Winter Holiday Elite, regardless of breeding. The nest must be both created and kindled during that period.
   Don't forget! If you would like to bypass your chance at a Winter Holiday 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 is also a Winter Holiday Elite, "Jingles 2011" (different from the ones available through breeding) exclusively available at the Ozimals shops and on the Marketplace only through January 2nd.  Also in the pack: a special limited edition Level 2 Standard food, two 3% Gingerbread Energy Treats, and a 10x Jingles nest dye ).


****************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.  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:

*****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 Marketplace and these locations:

*Ozimals Satellite Store (PG Location)

*Magic of Oz

*Lawst Paradise

* 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.

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.

Pufflings Release, Holiday Bunnies, and Special Events!

Hello Ozimals friends!

The time is finally here - the Pufflings are going out to explore the world beyond Oz and they are eager to meet you!  To learn all about Pufflings, go to our NEW wiki!  You can learn everything you need to know about bunnies, Pufflings, and all our other products and services.

The Puffling packs will be available beginning at 6 pm SLT today, December 12th.  We will shut down the Ozimals sim at some point between 4 pm and 5 pm SLT to prepare the Pufflings main store for launch.  If you need bunny items you can still visit our satellite store on Ozimals Orientation or purchase on Marketplace. 

The Pufflings main store is set up with Starter Packs on the left as you enter, Accessories on the right, and Food on the back wall.  If you have any problems or questions, just take a look at the tree in the center of the store for an online CSR to help you.

Puffling Main Store

Puffling packs and food will also be available at the following market partner locations shortly after 6:00 pm SLT - we encourage you to try these other locations if you are having trouble getting into the Ozimals sim!

Shamrock Market
The Breeders' Borough
Jody's Ranch & Farm Market
Red Barn Horses & Breedables
Blue Fusion Lost City of Breedables
Platinum Breedables
Rainbows End Stables

The Pufflings items WILL NOT immediately be available on Marketplace since there will be so many in world locations to pick them up, but we anticipate having them in Marketplace by the beginning of next week.

Ozaria is currently live for your Pufflings! We are wrapping up a few loose ends so some portions may not be fully active yet,  but should be by the end of the week. If you haven't logged in yet, give it a try now!  (What is Ozaria, you ask?  Ozaria is a website where you can access information and family history about Ozimals pets you own, list and search Ozimals pets for sale, check rewards program balances, connect with other Ozimals community members, and more!)

To help celebrate the Pufflings release, we are doing a very special event called the Pufflings Present Pursuit!  The event will run from December 22nd through January 12th and will have lots of great creators like Katat0nik, Sanu, new trails, lassitude and ennui, and many more participating with special themed gifts for you - mark your calendar and watch notices for more details coming in the next day or two.

Also, it is time for the Holiday Bunny update!  The update will be available on December 16th and the holiday period will run from December 19th - January 2nd.  You must update your bunnies in order to have a chance for the Winter Holiday Elites. More details to come in a separate notice. :)

We want to thank each and every one of you for your support and excitement for the Pufflings, it means so much to us!

Much <3

Your Ozimals Team
