Last Chance for Summer Blockbuster Gachas!

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Don't forget! The Summer Blockbuster bunny gacha machines, featuring the Superhero and Supervillain bunny elites and their limited-edition eyes, will vanish at the end of July. This means you have only a few more days to pick up your very own Heroes or Villains; this Thursday is July 31st. Information about these bunnies, and landmarks to the machines, can be found in our previous post, "Ozimals Summer Blockbuster Bunny Gacha!"

Thanks so much to everyone who's been taking pictures of their Blockbuster bunnies--and the new eyes showing up in their offspring--and sharing them with the community in the Ozimals Flickr pool! Oilell even made a comic showing her bunny heroes ensuring everyone gets his or her just desserts! Take a look: one of the new natural elite bunnies, Jules, and a Puffling with the current Golden Egg Time trait, the new Wren tail, are in there too!

Remember, too, that the Summer 2014 Warren Walk begins this Friday, August 1st. We'll post the location of the information kiosk/starting point once the Walk begins.

Stay tuned for more news from Oz early next week!

Summer 2014 Warren Walk Registration Now Open!

Hello, Ozimals friends!

We are always super-excited when members of the Oz community organize events for everyone to enjoy, and one of our very favorites is the Warren Walk!

Maybe you have special mutants or a collection of elites or a spectacular custom-built Bunny Temple, or maybe you have a pretty Puffling garden or a precariously balanced pyramid of perfect Paragons, or maybe you have a super-scientific high-tech genetics facility or you just hang out with your favorites in a nice tiki hut on the beach. Now you can share your pets and their home with the rest of the Ozimals community.

This will be the third Warren Walk (you can see pictures from the previous two by searching the Ozimals Flickr pool) and we hope it will be the best ever! For those of you who missed the first two, here's how Warren Walk works:

1/ Register in advance to show off your pets. Registration closes at 2:00 pm SLT this coming Monday, July 28th. Until then, you can get a registration form and instructions from this sign at Shamrock Market:

2/ Warren Walk begins on the evening of Friday, August 1st, so you have until then to make sure everything is ready for its closeup! A kiosk at Shamrock will give visitors a notecard directing them to a starting point for the Walk, and then they can visit all of the registered locations.

3/ The Walk will end on Sunday, August 10th. You don't have to show your warren in the Walk to enjoy looking at everyone else's, but it is a fun way to meet people in our community and show off your very favorite pets!

Much more information is available at Shamrock--if you still have questions, please contact Faolain Oconnell inworld--and we'll post again when the Warren Walk begins. Register soon! We want to see your bunnies and Pufflings in all their glory!

Ozimals Bunny Update 3.0!

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Welcome to Bunny Update 3.0! Please read these notes carefully before you begin updating! 

Bunny Update 3.0!

Update 3.0 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 3.0, 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 3.0 updater.

* New genetic traits!
* Holiday kindling for Summer!
* Summer Blockbuster Bunny Gachas!
* New natural elites!

New genetic traits!

Please note that these new genetic traits are NOT available through starter packs! The Summer Blockbuster Bunny Gacha bunnies are hiding a host of limited-edition eyes ONLY available through the gachas. These eyes will be retired with the gacha machines at the end of July and will not be available from us otherwise. (For more information about the gacha bunnies, please see our previous post!) 

Holiday kindling for Summer!

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 today, Monday, July 7, when the update is released, and closes at midnight SLT on Thursday night, July 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!

Summer Blockbuster Bunny Gachas!

This update brings the Summer Blockbuster Bunny Gacha machines--all of the information you will need is in the previous blog post!

New natural elites!

New "natural elites" have been added! For more information about natural elites, please see the Ozimals wiki!

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

Ozimals Summer Blockbuster Bunny Gacha!

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Ah, summertime. Iced tea, popsicles, and sitting in a nice air-conditioned movie theatre watching guys in capes save the world from other guys in capes. Only in the movies, though, right? Guys in capes don't actually save the world too often... or so one might think.

The reality is that bunnies in capes often save the world--from other bunnies in capes!--but have arranged with the major studios to have their stories told using human actors and a degree of artistic license.

We're celebrating their adventures this summer with the Summer Blockbuster Bunny Gachas! Here's everything you need to know about these special bunnies:

Gachas, if you're curious, are like gumball machines: you pay a low price and receive a random prize, available only for a limited time through these machines!

We have two different machines, with different prizes. They are L$75 per play, and the bunny nests inside have unlocked ears and shades, meaning they can produce bunnies with any currently available ear or shade type.

The two rare bunnies--the rare hero and the rare villain--are guaranteed to have limited-edition eyes as their hidden eyes. If you are unfamiliar with bunny genetics and elites, this means that when you click one of these bunnies, you'll see their true shown genetics in text (even though you can't see them on the bunnies because of their costumes). Besides their shown genetics, though, every Ozimals bunny also has a set of hidden genetics, which you can discover and pass on through breeding. In these bunnies--the two "Rares"--that set of genetics holds the limited-edition eye. It's guaranteed on the two rares, but the other gacha bunnies have a chance at carrying limited-edition eyes, too!

Summer Blockbuster Bunnies: Superheroes gacha key

The red machine contains Bunny Superheroes: six common hero bunnies, one rare hero bunny, one rare bunny food, and one Happiness totem. The totem boosts the happiness of bunnies in a 10m radius, has a menu to turn the bunny signal light on and off, and will work through July 30th, at which point it will become a collectible. Obviously, it also summons bunny heroes if you are in peril!

Summer Blockbuster Bunnies: Supervillains gacha key

The purple machine contains Bunny Supervillains: seven common villain bunnies, one rare villain bunny, one rare bunny food, and one Happiness totem. The totem boosts the happiness of bunnies in a 10m radius and will work through July 30th, at which point it will become a collectible. When asked about its other possible functions, the villain bunnies just cackled dramatically.

These bunnies will not be available on Marketplace; the only place to get them is from the gacha machines. There are gachas at the Ozimals main store, and at the Ozimals Satellite Shop @ Shamrock Market!

Learn more about these bunnies' superpowers and personalities at the Ozimals Flickr pool, and be sure to post pictures of YOUR bunnies' escapades there, too!

Happy kindling, happy summer, and much <3
