Beach Pufflings Gacha and Holiday Paragon!

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Seeing the bunnies having so much fun on the beach has made the Pufflings jealous. Worried that the tiny birds might be overwhelmed by the ocean waves, Ozma forbade any of them to go to the beach without some safety precautions.


We are happy to introduce the beach Pufflings gacha! Like the bunny gachas, it is L$50 per play, and contains the following:

FOUR Surfboards in exclusive Puffling orange!
FOUR beach towels in exclusive Puffling orange!
SEVEN "common" Pufflings with "Wingfloats" wings, in Evergreen, Ink, Snow, Chiffon, Flamingo, Mocha, or Chartreuse!
SEVEN "common" Pufflings with "Innertube" bodies, in Evergreen, Ink, Snow, Chiffon, Flamingo, Mocha, or Chartreuse!
ONE "rare" Puffling Paragon, with a Limited Edition trait!

The Pufflings that come from these eggs will not necessarily look like the ones in the picture, as their non-exclusive traits can vary; for example, a Puffling with Ink Wingfloats could have any body color, crest style, eye color, etc, that is in the current starter eggs, but it WILL have Ink Wingfloats.

Wingfloats and Innertube, as well as the secret LE trait in the rare Paragon, will only be available from this gacha, though they can be passed to the offspring of these Pufflings.

The Puffling Paragon itself will only be available from this gacha, though like all Paragons, its design is a "costume" and cannot be inherited by its offspring.

The Puffling gachas are set up on Ozimals Beach, right by the bunny gachas, and at our satellite shop at Shamrock Market!

To celebrate the summer festivities, there is ALSO a holiday Paragon, who can appear randomly from any egg created and hatched by your Pufflings between now and midnight SLT on July 31st. (That's the night of Tuesday/Wednesday, the 30th-31st.)

Happy Hatching and Much <3

Summer Warren Walk Begins!

Hello, Ozimals friends!

The Summer Warren Walk and Trivia Game have begun! The Warren Walk continues through July 28th, and the deadline for Trivia Game entries is July 27th.

The Warren Walk is an event organized by the Ozimals community for the Ozimals community. It's a great opportunity to hang out with other breeders and talk about bunnies and Pufflings... as well as getting a peek at other people's prized pets, the many cool environments and homes community members have created, and a glimpse of breeding strategies throughout the Ozimals world.

Shamrock Market and Krazy Kritters are sponsoring these events--you can visit either market to find a kiosk full of information, including the Warren Walk landmarks list, a trivia game card, information about the Warren Walk Flickr group, and more!

Remember, Bingo today at 3:30 pm SLT! The more people playing, the higher the prize!

Beach Bunny Bingo!

Hello, Ozimals friends!

It's time for Bingo! Our first game will be today, Saturday, July 13, at 3:30 pm SLT. Unlike previous Bingos, where we gave away Bunnybury tickets as prizes, this time the prizes will be Omni Food.

For those of you have not played Ozimals Bingo with us before, when you arrive at the Bingo location, you need to grab and wear a hat and a card from the box. Once a game is underway, your card will automagically fill in the spaces that have been called, but you must be wearing both the card AND the hat!

It's a lot of fun, and a chance to socialize with the rest of the Ozimals community!

Beach Bunny Bingo will be held on Ozimals Beach.

Our scheduled games are as follows:

Saturday July 13 - 3:30 pm SLT
Monday July 15 - 3:30 pm SLT
Wednesday July 17 - 3:30 pm SLT
Friday July 19 - 3:30 pm SLT
Saturday July 20 - 3:30 pm SLT
Monday July 22 - 3:30 pm SLT
Wednesday July 24 - 3:30 pm SLT
Friday July 26 - 1:30 pm SLT

Unscheduled, spur of the moment Bingo games will be announced in the inworld group chats.

Good luck, and much <3

Bunny Update 2.5

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Welcome to Bunny Update 2.5! We're excited to have you meet the Beach Bunnies, and come play on Ozimals Beach!


Please read these notes carefully before you begin updating!

Update 2.5 is a non-mandatory update. What this means is that your 2.4 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 2.5, they will not be able to breed with updated bunnies, or produce holiday-elite-capable nests. For any bunnies with earlier versions, 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 new traits available from the Beach Bunnies Gachas.

Additions:

* Beach Bunnies Holiday Elite Kindling Period!

* Beach Bunnies Gacha Machines and LE Traits!

* Bunny Nest Autolabeler!

* Beach Bunny Bingo!

---

*Beach Bunnies Holiday Elite Kindling Period

The Beach Bunnies holiday elite kindling period began earlier today, July 11th, and ends at 11:59 PM SLT on Friday, July 26th. Nests both created and kindled by version 2.5 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!


*Beach Bunnies Gacha Machines and LE Traits

Ozimals is celebrating this summer with our Beach Bunny gacha machines. There are 3 machines: Male, Female, and Surfboards. Each machine is L$50/play, and they are located on the Ozimals Beach and at our satellite shop at Shamrock Market.

The Male and Female machines have beach towels and bunny nests inside. Among the bunny nests, there are six different "Rare" nests: three male versions and three female versions. The bunnies in these rare nests have special coats and the chance to pass Limited Edition hidden traits.

The nests in the gachas have unlocked ears and shades, which means that the bunnies inside them can have any currently available ear or shade. All of the bunnies and towels and surfboards in the gachas will only be available from the gachas - ALL of the bunnies are elites!

Bunny nests are not transferable, though of course the bunnies are once they have been kindled. Towels and surfboards ARE transferable, so you can trade with your friends!


*Bunny Nest Autolabeler!

Now, when your bunnies create a nest, you have new options.

When you Show Stats, there is a new line added to the bottom, "Mother's Generation:", followed by a number. This number is the generations left to the mother bunny when the nest was created. This way, you can easily see which nests---yours or anyone else's---were created in a mother bunny's final three generations, and could thus be elite-eligible.

When you click "Name Nest", you will be given the choice of manually labeling it, like before, or automatically labeling it. The Automatic label will look something like this: "[10]Harlequin Blue & Orange-Dark Blue-Lop Ears-Classic". The number in brackets at the beginning is the Mother's Generation number, and the rest is... well, self-explanatory.

We hope this will make it much easier to keep track of your nests!


*Beach Bunny Bingo!

To inaugurate the Ozimals sim's new beach, we'll be holding Beach Bunny Bingo games--stay tuned to the blog for a post detailing the schedule.

****************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 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

Pufflings: Last Chance for Beatrice!

Hello, Ozimals friends!

While we get geared for the beach, fair Beatrice is departing for gentler climes. The sea air does not agree with her delicate constitution, so tomorrow, Tuesday, July 2, is the absolute last day that you can get a Beatrice Puffling Paragon from Ozimals. Besides being a special Paragon herself, Beatrice has a limited-edition genetic trait, unavailable elsewhere, that she can pass on to her offspring. For more information about Beatrice, please see our previous blog post.

To get your very own Beatrice, please visit the Pufflings main store or the Ozimals satellite shop at Shamrock Market!
