Ozimals Winter Holiday Schedule

Hello, Ozimals friends!

We hope all of you--and all of your bunnies and Pufflings--are enjoying the holiday season!

Ozimals will have limited support between December 23, 2016, and January 2, 2017. This means that CSRs will not be inworld for their usual shifts, and that it may take longer to receive replies to your tickets. We'll tackle them as soon as we get back, don't worry, but in the meantime, don't be afraid to ask for advice in the inworld groups--our community is helpful and awesome!

As many of you know, the Ozimals winter holidays extend just a little longer than most people's, culminating in Oziversary on January 9th. We'll have much more information about how we're celebrating our birthday this year after the break, so stay tuned...

Ozimals Cozy 2016 Bunny Gacha

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Ozimals Cozy 2016 Gacha

We are happy to introduce this year's winter holiday gacha, Cozy 2016! These bunnies are snug in their holiday sweaters and ready to play in the snow, go caroling, help string tinsel on the tree, enjoy cocoa by the fire, air grievances, or anything else you might do to celebrate the season!

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! This set of gachas is L$50 per play; each play gets you a random elite bunny nest. These nests have unlocked ears and shades, which means that the bunnies they produce can have any currently available ear type or shade. Additionally, these nests are random gender and can produce male or female elite bunnies. The Cozy 2016 gacha bunnies are all in one machine, with twelve "common" bunnies and no rares.

Ozimals Cozy 2016 Gacha Key

Each bunny is an elite, with a special elite "costume" unique to this gacha; once January 2nd arrives and the gacha machines melt into the winter snows of Oz, these elites will not be available again. Like all elites, because it is a costume, these bunnies will not pass their appearance to their offspring.

However, these bunnies conceal special limited edition eyes that they CAN pass to their descendants. Each bunny from the gacha has a chance at carrying any one of these twelve limited edition eyes. Please remember that just because the eye listed in the bunny's stats--what the bunny looks like under its costume--is not the LE eye, this doesn't mean the bunny isn't carrying it as a hidden genetic trait; careful breeding will reveal who's got it!

Good luck, happy breeding, and if you spend some time having winter fun with your bunnies, please post pictures to the  Ozimals Flickr group!

Ozimals Bunny Update 4.2

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Welcome to Bunny Update 4.2! Please read these notes carefully before you begin updating! 


Welcome to Bunny Update 4.2!


Update 4.2 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 4.2, they will not be able to breed with updated or new bunnies. 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 4.2 updater.


All of the nests in the Bunnybury rewards vendor will be updated to version 4.2 nests on update day.

Cozy 2016 Elite Bunny Gacha!

We're celebrating the winter holidays with the help of twelve cozy little gacha prizes: the Cozy 2016 Elites! Each bunny has a chance at one of twelve limited edition eyes--and these elites are exclusive to this gacha. For much more information and pictures, please see our previous blog post. Gacha machines are out now, and will remain until January 2, 2017, at:

The Ozimals main store
The Ozimals satellite store @ Shamrock Market

New Bunnybury Exclusive Bunny!

There is a brand new Bunnybury Exclusive Bunny available from the Bunnybury vendors! This means that the last Exclusive, with Tart eyes and Opal Bandit fur, has been retired; those traits are no longer available.

Introducing Bunny Follows!


You've always been able to hold your bunnies, but now you can have them hop around with you. Bunnies do enjoy being carried on adventures, but they yearn for the freedom of the open road, too--though they'll stay with you rather than taking off on their own. For more information about how this works, please see the Ozimals wiki.

Happy updating!


****************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.

The Winter holidays aren't quite upon us yet, but they're coming right up--help us kick off the season as we again participate in the Second Life Toys for Tots Annual Expo & Fair! This event benefits Toys For Tots; for more information about the program, which has distributed more than 512 million toys since 1947, please check out their website: Toys For Tots.

Bunny Update 4.1!

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Welcome to Bunny Update 4.1! Please read these notes carefully before you begin updating! 


Ozimals Bunny Update 4.1!

Update 4.1 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 4.1, they will not be able to breed with updated or new bunnies, and they will not be capable of producing holiday elites. 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 4.1 updater.


All of the nests in the Bunnybury rewards vendor will be updated to version 4.1 nests on update day.

Holiday Elite Kindling Period!
* Pirates vs Ninjas 2016 Bunny Pair Pack
!


Holiday Elite Kindling Period!

Ozimals is celebrating Hallows' Eve this year with holiday elites. Different elites than those in the pair pack, these bunnies have a chance to be born from any nest created and kindled between the beginning of the 4.1 update and 11:59 pm SLT Wednesday, November 2 (Wednesday night).

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!


Pirates vs Ninjas 2016 Bunny Pair Pack!


We're also excited to observe Hallows' Eve this year with a pair pack of elite bunnies, the Pirates vs Ninjas 2016 Bunny Pair Pack. It contains two elite bunny nests, a male and a female, each with a chance at its own limited-edition genetic trait! For more information, and pictures, please see our previous blog post!

Pair packs are available from the vendors at these locations:
The Ozimals main store
The Ozimals satellite store @ Shamrock Market
The Ozimals store on Marketplace

Happy updating!

Pirates vs Ninjas 2016 Bunny Pair Pack

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Happy Hallows' Eve! We are celebrating, in part, this year with a pack of elite bunnies, the Pirates vs Ninjas Pair Pack!

Pirates vs Ninjas 2016 Bunny Pair Pack!

To celebrate Hallows' Eve in Oz, bunnies dress up in costumes just like we do! Many popular costumes in Oz are based not only on the peculiar history and mythology of the Land of Oz, but on those of its surrounding fairyland nations. Here is a map of Oz and its neighbours:



While Oz itself is surrounded by enchanted deserts, and has no coastline, the neighbouring friendly nation of Ev is bordered by the Nonestic Ocean and has a rich history of sailing, exploration... and piracy. The great heroine of the bunnies of Ev is a pirate captain known only as the Sea Queen--if even half of the tales told of her are true, she is the bravest sailor and greatest pirate to have ever lived! These stories are popular even in the land of Oz, and it is common to see small bunnies "playing pirates", battling in imaginary ships!

The southern part of Ev is ruled by Ruggedo, the Nome King. He is very wicked, so much so that most young bunnies in Oz are too afraid of him to want a Nome King costume. His cruel reign is constantly undermined by a stealthy army of ninja bunnies, who are constantly tricking him and ruining his royal feasts. A bunny named Yin is the most famous of these rebel bunnies, though he is so sneaky that no-one has ever actually seen him. Despite this, he is a popular hero throughout both Ev and Oz!

Each pack includes two limited-edition elite bunny nests (a female "Sea Queen" elite and a male "Yin" elite), one limited-edition holiday food, and a decorative version of the food.

The nest has unlocked ears and shades, which means that your new elites can have any currently available ear type or shade shown, rather than the more limited set available to regular starter nests. Each elite has the chance of carrying its own limited-edition genetic trait, which he or she can pass down; these genetic traits will only be available from these elites, though, and these packs will vanish forever at the end of the Hallows' Eve season!

Remember, every bunny has both shown and hidden genetic traits. You must breed your bunnies to determine your elites' hidden genetic traits--and see if maybe they are hiding the special limited-edition traits!

The food in this pack is equivalent to Level 2 Standard Omni Food, and will feed one bunny or Puffling for 30 days. This limited-edition food will vanish when empty, which is why we've included a decorative, copiable version--but it's important to make sure you rez the FOOD for your bunny, because the deco version won't feed anyone!

Pirates vs Ninjas Pair Packs are available from:

The Ozimals Bunny main store
The Ozimals satellite store @ Shamrock Marketplace

New Ozimals Crossing Signs--Win a Bunnyball Elite!

Hello, Ozimals friends!

We have updated and improved the Ozimals Crossing signs! The new ones are just 1 LI and look fabulous! You will need to have one of the NEW signs set up before Friday, September 16th, to be eligible to win September's Bunnyball elite bunny.



Every month, a great spell is cast in the Emerald City. This spell sees ALL of the Ozimals Crossing signs, set up in every tiny corner of the Second Life grid. There is a terrific whirling, much like the tornado that carried Dorothy Gale to the Land of Oz, and then a puff of green smoke as one sign location is plucked at random from the long list. That sign's owner is identified, and awarded that month's prize bunny.

The first prize bunnies were the Conductor Bassman elites, and after twelve of those were awarded, the second year of the contest brought the Bunnyball elites. Only twelve Bunnyball bunnies will exist, too!

Ozimals Crossing signs are available at the Ozimals Bunny main store; just inside the front door, there is a box named Big Box O' Ozimals Goodies!. Click it, and it will give you a sign for free!

Rez your sign and decide where you would like it to go. Once you've positioned it where you want it, click it once, and it will send its location to us--that's it! If you want to move it after you have done this, simply move it, click it, and follow the directions it will give you in chat; this will update your sign's location.

Only you, the sign's owner, can set or reset its location. If other avatars click it, it will give them Ozimals landmarks.


When your sign registers a location, that is your entry for the contest. Registering more signs will overwrite your location; you will still just have ONE entry--so having extra signs out does not boost your chances. You must register using one of the NEW signs, even if you had one of the old ones out before.

Important:

* You may only win each bunny design once. However, when you win, you may select the shade and ear type of your prize bunny!

* Your sign must be somewhere publicly accessible--if we check the location and there is no sign visible, or it's trapped behind ban lines or orbs, or the region itself will not allow us access, another winner will be selected.

* You must have active bunnies or Pufflings to win! What this means is that you must have pets out on the grid, within sight of your sign, not hibernating or Disenchanted.

Good luck and much <3

Summer Bunny Gacha: Faeries!

Update 4.0 introduces this summer's gacha bunnies. For much, much more information and pictures, please see our previous blog post. These elite bunnies will be available through Monday, August 1st. We have split the gacha into two machines by gender, and each gender has twelve common bunnies and two rare bunnies. Each bunny has an associated limited edition eye; the rare bunnies are guaranteed to carry their special eye, while the common bunnies have a chance to do so.

Summer Bunny Gacha machines are available to play at these locations:
The Ozimals main store

New Natural Elite!


We have added a new "natural elite" bunny to the lineup, too! "Natural Elite" bunnies have a chance at being created in a mother bunny's last three generations--for much more information, please see the Ozimals wiki. Bunnies that have not yet been updated to version 4.0, and nests created by updated bunnies before they were updated, have no chance at producing this new elite.


Additionally, there are some minor "under the hood" changes, too boring to go into here :)

Happy updating!

Summer 2016 Bunny Gacha: Faeries!

Hello, Ozimals friends!



To us, the Land of Oz is a distant fairyland. It's well known that it is nearly impossible for mere mortals to cross between our world and Oz; those few who have accomplished it have only done so via a magical object or a weather-related accident. 

For the Fae, though, it is a different story, and the faeries of our world often cross the barriers that protect Oz from outsiders. They explore, and play, and visit their Oz counterparts; for some, it is the first time they've been anywhere where they are unquestioningly believed in by everyone.

The faeries trade stories and gossip and news--any faeries you meet in our world can tell you EVERYTHING about the goings-on in Oz fae society! Conversely, any faeries you might meet in Oz know all about the ones in our world, though they'll laugh at you if you ask to hear "fairytales" or "myths"; they know that these are not legends, but the truth.

Earlier this year, the Fae of Oz visited the Ozimals workshop, and told us all about their favorite faeries, from all over the world. We woke up the next morning, dazed and confused in piles of leaves, unsure if we had actually met the faeries we remembered, or if it had merely been a vivid dream--but cuddled into the garden with us were very special bunnies, presents to all of you from the faeries' realm!

We are happy to introduce this year's summer gacha, awash in fae magic and full of limited edition elite bunnies, named for the famous Fae of our world!

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! This set of gachas is L$50 per play; each play gets you a random elite bunny nest. These nests have unlocked ears and shades, which means that the bunnies they produce can have any currently available ear type or shade.

Each bunny is an elite, with a special elite "costume" unique to this gacha; once August arrives and the gachas go back to fairyland, these elites will not be available again. Like all elites, because it is a costume, these bunnies will not pass their appearance to their offspring.

However, these bunnies conceal special limited edition eyes that they CAN pass to their descendants. The "rare" bunnies in each machine are guaranteed to carry their limited edition eyes, while the "common" bunnies have a chance to do so! Each different bunny design has its own eye--each specific eye can only come from a bunny with the matching specific design. Please remember that just because the eye listed in the bunny's stats--what the bunny looks like under its costume--is not the LE eye, this doesn't mean the bunny isn't carrying it as a hidden genetic trait; careful breeding will reveal who's got it!

The Faeries gacha is split into two machines:

The "male" gacha has fourteen boy bunnies, representing the dark Fae; twelve common bunnies, pictured below, and two secret rare bunnies: the royalty of the dark Fae court!




The "female" gacha has fourteen girl bunnies, representing the light Fae; twelve common bunnies, pictured below, and two secret rare Fae Queen bunnies!




These machines will only be available through August 1st--then, they'll be whisked back to Oz, and these elite bunnies and their limited edition eyes will not be available again. Good luck, and happy breeding, and we hope to see some great Faeries images in the Ozimals Flickr group!

Ozimals Holiday Weekend limited support July 1-4

Hello, Ozimals friends!

This weekend is a holiday weekend in the US. So that our staff can celebrate Independence Day--enjoying waving sparklers around and barbecuing with their friends and families--we will have limited support from Friday, July 1, through Monday, July 4.

This means that CSRs won't be inworld for their regular shifts, and that tickets may be delayed--we'll answer them as soon as possible when we return. If you need help, we encourage you to ask in the inworld groups; very often, someone in our helpful and awesome community can help answer your questions!

If it's a holiday where you are, enjoy it, whether it's Independence Day or Canada Day, and we'll see you soon!

Pufflings' GET: Dawn has Ended--and Community Meeting Transcript is up!

Hello, Ozimals friends!

The Pufflings' Golden Egg Time, introducing the new genetic trait, "Dawn", has ended! The only way to get Dawn now is to inherit it from a Puffling who already has it! Additionally, though one of the new genetic traits introduced to starter eggs has been found--the "Rosewater" eye--the other is still hiding; check your eggs carefully!

For those who missed the Community Meeting last Sunday, the transcript--discussing summer plans for the bunnies and big changes in an upcoming Pufflings update, among other things--is now available at the Ozimals forums. Give it a look!

And stay tuned! We'll have more information about everything we discussed in the meeting very soon!

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Guess what? We're having a Community Meeting!

Sunday, May 1, 2016
1:00 pm SLT
Magic of Oz, next door to the Emerald City

We'll be talking mostly about some planned changes coming to Pufflings--all good things, we promise!

Soon you'll be able to earn Ozimals store credit on Pufflings store purchases, for one thing. We're taking steps to reduce the prim count of accessories like the Gem Garden, too!

Speaking of the Gem Garden... those of you who've been collecting gems will be rewarded soon for your hard work! (Puffling owners who haven't been playing Gem Garden might want to catch up; there is one outside the Pufflings main store if you'd like to try it out!)

Similarly, the Royal Aviarius has begun picking items from his personal collection to offer as rewards for your coins--we'll have lots of information about this at the meeting.

Looking ahead to summer, we'll also be talking about the summer bunny gacha and some other new things coming in the next bunny update--and, as always, taking questions from you during the second half of the meeting. We hope you can join us!

New Puffling Genetic Traits!

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Two new genetic traits have come to the Pufflings!

Puffling photobomb madness!

As Puffling owners may know, it is not necessary for Ozimals to update Pufflings to add genetic traits to starter eggs. So, any starter egg--that means the ones available in packs from Ozimals--rezzed for the first time now has a chance at one of these exciting new genetic traits! (They're not shown in the photo above; we didn't want to take away the fun of discovery!)

We are glad everyone enjoyed the Magic of Oz 2016 Easter Hunt! Stay tuned for more news soon about what's ahead in the Land of Oz...

The Magic of Oz 2016 Easter Egg Hunt!

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Magic of Oz 2016 Easter Hunt!

The Magic of Oz 2016 Easter Egg Hunt begins at 12:00 noon SLT on Wednesday, March 23! The hunt will run through midnight on Friday evening, April 8.

There are exclusive prizes to be won from our Munchkinland merchants ~silentsparrow~SchadenfreudeHalf-Deer*katat0nik*Cerridwen's Cauldron, Cubic Cherry Kre-ationsFallen Gods Inc., and, of course, Ozimals! 

Here is how the hunt works:

Once the hunt opens on Wednesday, when you teleport to Magic of Oz, you'll see a sign at the landing point advertising the hunt. Click the sign, and you'll receive an empty egg-gathering basket to wear. Decorated eggs will appear all over the sim, in hundreds of hiding places. When you find an egg, click it! (You may have to right-click and "touch") It will vanish, then reappear in your basket.

Be careful! If you try to grab more than one egg in a thirty-second period, you'll get the first one, but the rest will break, and will not count towards filling your basket.


When you have collected six eggs, a menu will pop up asking you to choose a shop whose prize you would like to receive. Once you make your selection, you will receive a stack of eggs to wear on your head. Wearing your eggs, go to the shop you have chosen in Munchkinland. You'll see an Easter basket in the shop:


Easter Basket--get up close!

Creep up close to it--within two meters--and click the stack of eggs you're wearing on your head. The Easter basket will give you your prize! If a merchant has put more than one prize in their basket, it will randomly pick one for you. Once you have your prize, you can play again by refilling the same basket. Each stack of eggs, however, will only work once, and only for the shop you chose from the menu, so once you've received your prize, it's wise to detach and delete that stack.

When you are all done, you can use the basket's menu to make it into a collectible decoration, with color-change options!

Now, on to the goodies...


Ozimals Bunnies for Easter 2016
The basket at the Ozimals Bunny Mainstore contains a variety of special Easter-themed treats. There is a Love totem, which works from now through the end of the hunt to boost the Love stat for bunnies and the Charm stat for Pufflings, and a selection of candies which can be fed to an individual bunny to instantly raise his or her Energy. Also in the bunny store's basket, however, are THREE very special bunnies--Easter elites that will only be available from this hunt! These nests - Spring Dot, Spring Stripe, and Spring Doodle - have unlocked ears and shades, which means that your baby bunnies can have any currently available ear type or shade.



Ozimals Puffling for Easter 2016
The Ozimals Pufflings Mainstore's basket contains Easter candies that can be fed to an individual Puffling to instantly raise his or her Zip, as well as a limited edition Paragon egg. This new Puffling Paragon will only be available from this hunt, and comes packed with Puffling food in his or her own special birdhouse.


Here are pictures of the prizes to be won from our participating merchants!
