Ozimals Bunny Update 2.4!

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Welcome to Bunny Update 2.4! Please read these notes carefully before you begin updating!

Update 2.4 is a non-mandatory update for 2.3 bunnies. What this means is that your 2.3 bunnies will continue to eat for two weeks if not updated, though each food you have rezzed out will message you once a day to remind you to update. If your bunnies are not updated to 2.4, they will not be able to breed with updated bunnies, or produce holiday-elite-capable nests. For any bunnies with earlier versions--2.2 and older--this update is mandatory; those bunnies will stop eating once the update is released.

Starter bunny packs, bought directly from Ozimals, do not have new genetic traits as of this update, due to the batch we unlocked less than two weeks ago.

Additions:

* Easter Holiday Elite Kindling Period!

* Easter Sweets 2013 Packs!

* And some "under the hood" improvements too boring and code-y to go into here.

---

*Easter Holiday Elite Kindling Period

The Easter holiday elite kindling period begins at 12:01 am SLT on Tuesday, March 19--that's midnight on Monday night--and ends at 12:01 am SLT on Tuesday, April 2--also midnight on Monday night. Nests both created and kindled by version 2.4 bunnies during this period have the chance at producing a holiday elite bunny. Of course, as always, if you would rather skip the chance, the nests' menus will have a button labeled "No Elite".

For more information about special holiday elite kindling periods, please see the wiki.



*Easter Sweets 2013 Pack

Ozimals is celebrating Easter this year with an elite bunny pack available exclusively from Ozimals. The Easter Sweets 2013 Pack contains nest dye, a limited-edition holiday food, and two random-gender nests: one each of the Criollo 2013 and Forastero 2013 elite bunnies. These nests have unlocked ears and shades, which means that the bunnies inside them can have any currently available ear or shade.

The special holiday food is a 30-day Level 2 Standard food. It is our first mesh food, with an LI of only 2, instead of the higher numbers of the older prim foods!

Easter Sweets 2013 packs and Version 2.4 Updaters are available are available from:

The Ozimals main store

The Ozimals satellite store @ Shamrock Market

The Ozimals shop on Marketplace

****************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!)  LMs below:

Bunny Update Fields @ Ozimals Orientation 2

*****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!

1. Get the updater, available free from these locations:

The Ozimals main store
The Ozimals satellite store @ Shamrock Market
The Ozimals shop on Marketplace

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
