Ozimals Bunny Update 2.6!

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Welcome to Bunny Update 2.6! Please read these notes carefully before you begin updating!

Update 2.6 is a non-mandatory update. What this means is that your 2.5 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 2.6, they will not be able to breed with updated or new bunnies. For any bunnies with earlier versions, this update is mandatory; those bunnies will stop eating once the update is released.

Additions:

* Limited Edition Wonder Warren Packs!

* New Genetic Traits!

* Retired Genetic Traits!

* New Bunnybury Exclusive Bunny!

* Design a Winter Holiday Elite Bunny!

---

* Limited Edition Wonder Warren Packs!

For this update, we are introducing a special limited edition pack, the Wonder Warren. The bunnies in the Wonder Warren will share the same chance of new traits as the regular packs. However, there is a SECOND set of new furs, exclusive to the Wonder Warren. All Wonder Warren bunnies will have these new furs as their VISIBLE furs--so you are guaranteed new furs on these bunnies right out of the box--PLUS they have a chance of other new traits.

The Wonder Warren will be limited to 400 packs total, but there is no limit on how many packs anyone may buy. These packs will only be available inworld, at the Ozimals main store and at the Ozimals satellite shop at Shamrock Market. When all 400 are gone, or on September 9th, whichever comes first, they will become unavailable. These special Wonder Warren furs will NOT be available again and can ONLY be bought in this pack.

These are *not* elites; these furs are breedable like any other new fur.

Wonder Warren packs have different packaging from regular warren packs, and will be sold from a special vendor. There will be fifty packs in each location when the update is released. If needed, we will add more on Tuesday, August 27th, at 10:00 am SLT. Delaying until this specific time gives multiple time zones a fair shot; after that, we will add more as needed, but the total number of packs that will be available is 400.

* New Genetic Traits!

All of the standard bunny packs--pet packs, pair packs, and warren packs--will have the chance of new traits once the update is released. ALL new packs will have a chance of new traits, but the Wonder Warren will also have an ADDITIONAL set of new furs, which will not be available from other packs.

* Retired Genetic Traits!

We are retiring a large number of traits in this update, including all Velveteen furs, all Annamite furs, and the following eyes: Orchid, Cognac, Knight, Clover, Pyrite, Curacao, Magma, Chestnut, Storm, Beryl, Mushroom, Ianthine, Blaze, and Cirrus. Also leaving will be the current Bunnybury Exclusive bunny, Velveteen Berry with Grenadine eyes.

* New Bunnybury Exclusive Bunny!

There will be a new Bunnybury Exclusive bunny, which will be available from the Bunnybury vendor when the update is released. This bunny will have a new exclusive fur and new exclusive eye, unavailable anywhere else. These traits are breedable. The bunnies from the vendor will all be Classic shade this time, with any ear type possible - so if you want to see it in your favorite shade--and you WILL--get breeding!

The Bunnybury Random Nest and Nest With Increased Chance of Recessives will be updated a week after the update, on Monday, September 2nd, and will then also include the chance of new traits.

For more information about Bunnybury, including a slurl to the vendor, please see the Ozimals wiki.

* Design a Winter Holiday Elite Bunny!

We're holding a contest! This year, we'd like to see your dream Winter Holiday Elite bunny - the winning entries from the community will inspire the 2013 Winter Holiday Elites. For more information and how to enter, please see the contest announcement blog post!

For more information about our plans for the holidays this year, please check out the notes for the recent Community Meeting.

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

*****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 recent 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 short delay before the updater begins; 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 soit  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
