Bunny Update 3.1

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Welcome to Bunny Update 3.1! Please read these notes carefully before you begin updating! 

Welcome to Bunny Update 3.1!

Update 3.1 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 3.1, 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 3.1 updater.

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, October 6th, to then also include the chance of 3.1's new traits. (The Bunnybury Exclusive nest's shown traits are not changing.)

* Nightmare Pair Pack
* Holiday kindling for Hallows' Eve!
* New Genetic Traits in Starter Packs
* Retired Genetic Traits

* Bondbreaker Potion

Hallows' Eve Pair Pack

We have two spectacular Halloween elites available from the shop, with a chance at a limited-edition eye! Please see our previous post for everything you need to know about the Nightmare Pair Pack and about Mask Potions!

Holiday kindling for Hallows' Eve!

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 tomorrow evening, Tuesday, September 30th, at midnight SLT, and closes at midnight SLT on Sunday night, November 2nd. 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!

New Genetic Traits in Starter Packs

As of this update, new starter packs purchased from Ozimals (Warren Packs, Pair Packs, and Pet Packs, from the Ozimals main store, the Satellite Store at Shamrock Market, or the SL Marketplace) have the chance of carrying a range of new genetic traits.

Retired Genetic Traits

We are retiring many older traits in this update. What "retired" means: existing bunnies with these traits will still have them, and can still pass them along to their children, but new starter bunnies from Ozimals will not have any chance of carrying the traits. As you can see from the Bunny Trait Percentages Chart on the Ozimals wiki, many long-retired traits are still going strong.

We've chosen to retire all of the remaining Bunny Games eyes and furs. This includes the following furs: 

West: Winkie Yellow, Wogglebug Brown, Quadling Red, Poppy Orange, Gillikin Purple, Silver Slipper, Emerald City, and Munchkin Blue.
East: Munchkin Blue, Quadling Red, Wicked Witch, Wogglebug Brown, and Silver Slipper.
North: Wogglebug Brown, Emerald City, Munchkin Blue, Winkie Yellow, Quadling Red, Gillikin Purple, Poppy Orange, and Wicked Witch.
South: Silver Slipper, Gillikin Purple, Emerald City, Wogglebug Brown, Quadling Red, Munchkin Blue, Poppy Orange, Winkie Yellow, and Wicked Witch.
Magic of Oz: Emerald City, Poppy Orange, Wogglebug Brown, Winkie Yellow, Munchkin Blue, Gillikin Purple, Silver Slipper, and Quadling Red.

This includes the following eyes:

Gladiator, Glinda, Locasta, Marauder, Quester, Warrior, Woggle, and Zilonia.

Bond Breaking Potion

Available from both shops and the Marketplace, the new Bond Breaking Potion does what it says on the tin. Each package contains two potions, and each potion will release one bunny--version 3.1 or higher--from his or her assigned bond. (You can use both potions from the package to unbond both bunnies of a pair--or you can save one potion, and only unbond ONE bunny from a pair. The other bunny's bond will naturally expire after five days.)

****************IMPORTANT NOTES****************



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 ( ) 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.


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.


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. It is important to only rez ONE updater!D.  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
