Ozimals Bunny Update 3.9!

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Welcome to Bunny Update 3.9! Please read these notes carefully before you begin updating! 


Ozimals Bunny Update 3.9


Update 3.9 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 3.9, 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 3.9 updater.


The Bunnybury Exclusive Rare Bunny Nest will be updated on update day. The Bunnybury Random Nest and the Bunnybury Nest With Increased Chance of Recessives will be updated two weeks from update day, on Monday, February 22nd. Bunnybury Random Nests and Bunnybury Nests With Increased Chance of Recessives bought from the vendor before that date will be version 3.8 nests with no chance of v3.9 genetic traits.

New Genetic Traits for 3.9!

This update brings a new set of breedable genetic traits to the bunnies. All 3.9 starter nests--nests purchased directly from Ozimals--have the chance to carry and pass on the new genetic traits! We'll be adding them to the wiki as they turn up, and we hope you'll post pictures of new discoveries to the Ozimals Flickr group!


New Bunnybury Exclusive Bunny!


The Bunnybury Exclusive Rare Bunny Nest has been updated for version 3.9 with a new bunny. This bunny's eyes and fur are exclusive to these nests and will not be available from other bunnies. The previous Bunnybury Exclusive traits, Chroma eyes and Sahara Tapira fur, are now retired. Bunnybury Exclusive Rare Bunny Nests are now updated, so any Exclusive Rare nest bought from the vendor will be version 3.9 and have the new Exclusive genetic traits. Bunnybury Random Nests and Bunnybury Nests With Increased Chance of Recessives will remain version 3.8 until Monday, February 22nd.


St. Valentine's Holiday Elite!

Ozimals is celebrating St. Valentine's day this year with holiday elites; these bunnies have a chance to be born from any nest created and kindled between 12:01 am SLT Wednesday, Feburary 10th (Tuesday night) and 11:59 pm SLT Wednesday, February 17th (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!


Retired Eyes!

We have chosen to retire a group of older bunny eyes in this update. Remember, being "retired" only means that these will no longer be available from "starter" bunnies--those purchased from Ozimals (Warren Packs, Pair Packs, and Pet Packs)--any bunny who is already carrying these eyes will still have them, and will still be able to pass them to his or her descendants.

The eyes retiring as of 3.9 are: Zinnia, Hydrangea, Torley, Spring, Opal, Onyx, Amber, Nightshade, Copper, Brulee, and Marnier.


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.
