Ozimals Bunny Update 2.9!

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Ozimals Bunny Update 2.9

Welcome to Bunny Update 2.9! Please read these notes carefully before you begin updating! 

Update 2.9 is a non-mandatory update. What this means is that your bunnies will continue eating for two weeks without being 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 2.9, they will not be able to breed with updated or new bunnies OR produce holiday elite-capable nests. Remember, a bunny takes 72 hours to go from 0% hunger to 100% and hibernation, so you have two weeks plus three days to update... just don't forget!

If your bunnies do hibernate, all you need to do is give them food, wait 24 hours for them to come out of hibernation, and then use the 2.9 updater.


Additions:


* New genetic traits!
* Holiday kindling for Easter!
* Limited edition Happy Easter 2014 Pair Pack elites!
* Ozimals Easter Egg Hunt!


New genetic traits!


All new 2.9 starter bunnies purchased from Ozimals have the chance of carrying the new genetic traits we've added in this update. By "starter bunnies", we mean the nests in the packs available at the shops and on Marketplace: pet packs, pair packs, and warren packs. 

The Bunnybury Random Nest, Bunnybury Nest With Increased Chance of Recessives, and the Bunnybury Exclusive Rare Bunny Nest will be updated a week after the update, on Monday, April 21st, to then also include the chance of 2.9's new traits. (The Bunnybury Exclusive nest's shown traits are not changing.)


Holiday kindling for Easter!


Holiday elite bunnies are special rewards for active bunny breeders--if you've not been with us for previous holiday kindles, here is how they work! 

The holiday kindling window begins this Tuesday night at midnight SLT--that's the evening of April 15th--and closes at midnight SLT on Wednesday night, April 30th. The nest's hovertext will not tell you whether or not the nest is an elite; it must be kindled to find out. When you kindle a nest created during the date range window, you will see a "No Elite" button in its menu--pressing this button makes the nest ignore its chance to produce a holiday elite, so use it carefully, if at all! Remember, if a nest has a chance to be a natural elite AND a chance to be a holiday elite, natural elite wins-and the "No Elite" button only turns off the holiday elite chance, not the natural elite chance, if one is present.

The genetics of potential holiday elite parents do not affect eligibility; both parents must be updated to the current version, the nest must have been created and kindled during the date window, and both parents must have zero hibernations.

To check the number of hibernations on any bunny: if the bunny is not yours, click the bunny and choose "Ozaria" from its menu. If the bunny is yours, click "Support" and then "Ozaria". This will bring up a web page showing the bunny's number of hibernations, so it's easy to check if a bunny you own or are considering buying is eligible to produce holiday elites!

****************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:




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 so 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 rerezz them.

Happy Kindling and Much <3
