Ozimals Bunny Update v2.1!

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Please read this ENTIRE post carefully BEFORE you begin updating!

/-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-   Patch Notes 2.1-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-\   



Additions:
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

>>New Genetic Traits! 
>>Winter and Happy New Year Elites!
>>Yuletide holiday elite pair pack!
>>New Bunnybury reward bunny!
>>Direct Delivery!
>>Retired Traits!

**New Genetic Traits!

   We've added new genes to the Ozimals pool; they are available through version 2.1 starter packs on Marketplace, from the Ozimals main store, or from the Ozimals satellite shop at Shamrock Market. As always, new version starter bunnies have the *chance* of carrying the new genes.
   Please note that the lower-cost nests in the Bunnybury vendors ("Random Bunny Nest" and "Bunny Nest With Increased Chance of Recessives") will be switched to version 2.1 on the 26th of Dec 2012 (if we make it past the 21st!). This means that if you buy those nests from the vendor before that date, they will be 2.0 nests and will not have the new genetic traits.

**Winter and Happy New Year Elites!

   Any nest created by your updated bunnies and kindled between 12:01 am SLT on Tuesday, December 18th and 9:00 am SLT on Wednesday, January 2nd can potentially produce a 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 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.

**Limited-edition Yuletide pair pack!


   There is a limited edition Yuletide pair pack available through January 2 on Marketplace, from the Ozimals main store, or from the Ozimals satellite shop at Shamrock Market. This pack contains a pair of Yuletide holiday elite bunnies, Eve and Midwinter (different from the ones available through breeding), two ten-use nest dyes, a special limited edition Level 2 Standard wearable food, and a trio of decorative wearable candy canes.

**New Bunnybury reward bunny!

   The previous Bunnybury Exclusive Rare Bunny Nest (Magic of Oz - Wicked Witch/Valentina) has been removed from the Bunnybury vendors and replaced with a NEW bunny with exclusive traits! Like the previous bunny, the new Bunnybury bunny can pass these traits to its offspring, but they will not be available from any other source.

**Direct Delivery!

   All items purchased from the Ozimals Marketplace shop are now Direct Delivery, which means less unpacking for you--and that they will show up in your inventory in your Received Items folder.

**Retired traits!

   It is important to understand what "retirement" means for bunny traits. If a trait is retired, it is no longer available from starter nests (nests bought from Ozimals directly). Bunnies that already exist on the grid who have these traits will still have them, and will still be able to pass them to their offspring. This means that if you want to add the traits to your warren of bunnies, you will need to buy from or trade with another bunny owner to get them. To see what was retired before this update, please see the list in the 1.11 Update blog post.

   As of *this* update, the following are also retired:
---Furs: North - Silver Slipper, East - Poppy Orange, Rhinelander Lilac, Rhinelander Blue, East - Gillikin Purple, East - Emerald City, East - Winkie Yellow, Rhinelander - Red, Rhinelander - Black, West - Wicked Witch
---Eyes: Schadenfreude, Sinister, Ash, Hydrangea, Valentina
---Shade: Aphotic


****************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. This is a non-mandatory update, which means that your bunnies will not stop eating immediately if not updated, but to have a chance at breeding winter elites, or to breed with updated bunnies, your bunnies MUST be updated to v2.1.

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 ( 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 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, which is available on Marketplace, from the Ozimals main store, or from the Ozimals satellite shop at Shamrock Market.

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 OF YOUR FOOD so that it will detect that the bunnies have been updated. If you use any dispenser or server system, you need to remove the food from those systems and re-rez it.
