Bunny Update 3.3!

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Welcome to Bunny Update 3.3! Please read these notes carefully before you begin updating! 





Update 3.3 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 3.3, 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 3.3 updater.


The Bunnybury Random Nest, Bunnybury Nest With Increased Chance of Recessives, and the Bunnybury Exclusive Rare Bunny Nest will be updated on update day, since their potential genetics have not changed from 3.2.

Additions:
* Winter Elite Bunny Gacha / Limited Edition Eyes!
* Winter Holiday Food and Treats!
* The Twelve Days of Kindling!
* Winter 2014 Happiness Totem!

* 15-Minute Nest Kindling Time!




Winter Elite Bunny Gacha / Limited Edition Eyes!

We are celebrating the Winter holidays with a pair of elite bunny gacha machines! This time we have split the gacha into male and female elite bunnies, and all of the bunnies have a chance at carrying limited edition eyes! For all of the information about the gachas and these elite bunnies, please see our previous blog post.


Winter Holiday Food and Treats!


The Oz bakers have been busy, and there are mountains of holiday food with which to treat your bunnies and Pufflings. Additionally, there are special packages of stats-boosting treats! Both the treats and the food come with a Happiness/Bliss-boosting totem. Please see our previous blog post for all of the information about the food, the treats, and the totem!


The Twelve Days of Kindling!

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 Friday evening, December 19th, at midnight SLT, and closes at midnight SLT on Wednesday night, New Year's Eve, December 31st. 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! Of course, if your bunnies DO have hibernations, you have plenty of time before the kindling period starts to get some elites from the gacha all ready to go!



Winter 2014 Happiness Totem!

The Winter Happiness Totem works on both bunnies and Pufflings, boosting Happiness for bunnies and Bliss for Pufflings by 3% (for the nearest 16 pets within 10m). It will continue working until New Year's Eve, at which point it will disappear. The Winter Happiness Totem is included in the boxes of holiday food, and in the boxes of holiday treats for bunnies and Pufflings! Get more information about the food and treats from our previous post!



15-Minute Nest Kindling Time!

In 3.2, we introduced a shorter bunny nest kindling time: 15 minutes. This shortened wait is permanent, and not going away with the 3.3 update! Hooray!


****************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!

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.
