Bunny Update 2.0 Begins Today

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Welcome to Bunny Update 2.0! Please read these notes carefully before you begin updating!


Update 2.0 is a non-mandatory update. What this means is that your bunnies will continue to eat if not updated, though each food you have rezzed out will message you once a day to remind you to update. If you are not able to be inworld and updating until later, your bunnies will not go hungry. Until your bunnies are updated, however, you will not be able to use the new features, nor will your bunnies be able to breed with 2.0 bunnies.

Additions:
*2012 Oz Bunny Games
*Bunny Racing
*Hallows' Eve Elites
*30-minute kindling time
*New Natural Elite
*Bunnybury Bunny Games goodies

*2012 Oz Bunny Games

The Oz Bunny Games sim is now open! It will remain open through the conclusion of the Bunny Games on November 5, 2012, and we will be hosting Bunny Bingo and other special events there. While on the sim, you can play games to receive tickets which can be redeemed for Bunnybury coins.

*Bunny Racing

2.0 Bunnies have a new button in their menu--"Games". Their first game is the Bunny Race, which you may purchase in copy or no-copy versions, or play anywhere that a public track has been set up. If you picked a team to cheer before the deadline, every victory by one of your bunnies counts towards that team's Bunny Games totals. Remember, whichever team wins the Bunny Games will award its supporters a special elite, so start racing!

*Hallows' Eve Elites

This year, we are celebrating Hallows' Eve with a holiday timer. What this means is that any bunny may produce a holiday elite, if the nest is created and kindled within the time period for these elites. Unlike "natural elites", the parents' genetic traits and number of generations remaining have no bearing on their chances for these nests; the parent bunnies must simply be updated to 2.0. The nest will not say that it contains an elite; you must kindle to find out! Nests created during this time period will have a special button in their menus which allows you to "turn off" their elite chance before kindling, should you choose to do so.
The timer starts running at 12:01 am SLT on Monday, October 22nd (you may think of it as midnight Sunday night), and stops at 11:59 pm SLT on Friday, November 2nd (midnight Friday night).

In addition to these elites, you may purchase special packs of Hallows' Eve elites from Ozimals. More information about Dulces, Flores, Lumbre, and Sombre is available here!

*30-minute kindling time

Because so many bunnies in Oz have been training so hard for the Bunny Games, they are in better health than ever before--as a result, their nests are kindling faster, producing new babies in a shorter time than before. All nests created by 2.0 bunnies will kindle in 30 minutes, rather than the old 60 minutes!

*New Natural Elite

A new natural elite has been added with this update. Bunnies that have not been updated cannot produce this elite. Additionally, the chance of producing a natural elite has been increased. For more information about natural elites, please see the Ozimals wiki.

*Bunnybury Bunny Games goodies

Newly available from the Bunnybury vendor is a pack of goodies to celebrate the Bunny Games. Each Bunny Games Uber Fun Pack contains transferable Nest Sparkles in all eight team colors, and transferable Bunny Racing Dust in the four main team colors. Racing Dust works the same way the Bunnybury Bunny Treats do: rez one on a bunny and it will have a special effect for one hour, or until it is picked up. Rather than the sparkles and hearts of the standard Treats, however, Racing Dust creates a cloud of brightly colored dust as the bunny thunders down the track (or around your garden)! Since all items in the pack are transferable, you can trade freely with supporters of other teams.

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

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!  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 (shortly) and these locations:

*Ozimals Main Store

*Ozimals Bunny Games

* Shamrock Market - All Things Ozimals (Official Ozimals Satellite Store)

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.

Happy Kindling and Much <3
