Mandatory! Bunny Update 4.4

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Ozimals Bunny Update 4.4

It's been a few years since we've had a mandatory bunny update. But we've been informed of an issue with 4.3, and to correct it, we need to do an update. IMPORTANT: Because this update is mandatory, your bunnies will stop eating until they are updated. Remember, they will take 72 hours to fall into hibernation without being updated.

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 4.4 updater.

Get the updater, available free from these locations:
The Ozimals main store
The Ozimals satellite store @ Shamrock Market
The Ozimals shop on Marketplace

Ozimals Vendors @ Evolutions Multibreed Market
Ozimals Vendors @ A Little Bit Of Everything by Neck

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.

Magic of Oz 2017 Easter Hunt!

Hello, Ozimals friends!


Magic of Oz 2017 Easter Hunt!


The Magic of Oz 2017 Easter Egg Hunt begins at 12:00 noon SLT on Tuesday, April 4! The hunt will run through midnight on Sunday evening, April 16.

There are exclusive prizes to be won from our Munchkinland merchants ~silentsparrow~Schadenfreude, *katat0nik*Cerridwen's Cauldron, Cubic CherryFallen Gods Inc., and, of course, Ozimals!

Here is how the hunt works:

Once the hunt opens on Tuesday, 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:



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 delete that stack.

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

Now, on to the goodies...


Primavera 2017 and Vistoso 2017 elite bunnies!

The basket at the Ozimals Bunny Mainstore contains a variety of special Easter-themed treats. There is 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 two very special bunnies--Easter elites that will only be available from this hunt! These nests - Vistoso 2017 and Primavera 2017 - have unlocked ears and shades, which means that your baby bunnies can have any currently available ear type or shade.


Crecimiento 2017 Paragon!

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, Crecimiento 2017, will only be available from this hunt!

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


Cubic Cherry

Schadenfreude


*katat0nik*

ALSO *katat0nik*--a bonus addition!

Cerridwen's Cauldron

Happy Hunting!

Filling the Cauldron: Limited Edition Elite & Paragon

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Enigma 2017 Paragon at Cerridwen's Cauldron


Spooklight 2017 elite at Cerridwen's Cauldron


Elicio Ember is one of our very favorite Second Life creators--besides being one of the Munchkinland merchants on Magic of Oz! His unique and spectacular work has brought atmosphere and beauty to many locations around the grid, to RFL's Fantasy Faire, and to his own region and shop, Cerridwen's Cauldron. Elicio's father suffered a stroke last month, and he and his family are faced with monumental expenses for care and rehabilitation; as a result, several fundraisers are in progress, so that fans, friends, and fellow creators can help!

Filling the Cauldron, a special benefit event, begins today, April 1st, and runs through Sunday, April 9th. Please check out their website to see the entertainment, auctions, and participating creators, and to learn more about the fundraiser itself!

We are excited to be donating an elite bunny and a Puffling Paragon, both limited editions, that will ONLY be available at this event! 100% of their purchase price will go to benefit Elicio. Come visit the Ozimals shop at Filling the Cauldron to pick them up for yourself, and thanks so much for supporting this event!


Spooklight 2017 Limited Edition Elite Bunny

 The Spooklight 2017 Bunny Elite pack contains one random-gender nest with unlocked shade and ears, which means that this bunny can have any currently available shade or ear type. Also in the box is one 30-day Level 2 Standard Omni food, which will feed one bunny or Puffling for 30 days.




The Enigma 2017 Puffling Paragon pack contains one random-gender egg which can produce a Puffling showing either Natural or Splendid shades. Also in the box are one 30-day Level 2 Standard Puffling food, which will feed one Puffling for 30 days, and a matching limited-edition Puffling birdhouse (now just 1 LI!).

Happy Valentine's Day from Ozimals!

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Everything in the Land of Oz has been decorated--there are garlands of hearts, lovely bouquets, and tasty treats everywhere! Small bunnies are hard at work with paste and doilies and glitter and construction paper, making valentines for their playmates, and the grownup bunnies are planning special dates, with elaborate feasts and flowers. As for Ozimals, we're celebrating Valentine's Day this year with the release of the Cupid 2017 elite bunny!

Ozimals Cupid 2017 Elite Bunny Pack


Each pack includes one random-gender limited-edition Cupid 2017 elite bunny nest, one Level 2 Standard Omni food, and a transferable 10-use nest dye.

The nest has unlocked ears and shades, which means that your new elite can have any currently available ear type or shade shown, rather than the more limited set available to regular starter nests.

These special elites will only be available through the end of February, and then they'll disappear forever...!

Cupid 2017 Packs are available from:

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

Ozimals Bunny Update 4.3

Hello, Ozimals friends!


Ozimals Bunny Update 4.3!

Welcome to Bunny Update 4.3! Please read these notes carefully before you begin updating! 

Update 4.3 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 4.3, 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 4.3 updater.


The Bunnybury Exclusive Rare Bunny Nest will be updated on update day, though its special traits are not changing in this update. The Random Nest and the Bunnybury Nest With Increased Chance of Recessives will be updated two weeks from update day, on Monday, January 23rd. Bunnybury Random Nests and Bunnybury Nests With Increased Chance of Recessives bought from the vendor before that date will be version 4.2 nests with no chance of v4.3 genetic traits.


News & Additions:

New Genetic Traits for 4.3 !
Oziversary!

Wizard of Oz 2017 Elite!
Retired Eyes!
Bunny Follows now boosts Happiness!


New Genetic Traits for 4.3!

This update brings a new set of breedable genetic traits to the bunnies. All 4.3 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 once they've turned up, and we hope you'll post pictures of new discoveries to the Ozimals Flickr group!


Oziversary!

Today, January 9th, 2017, is Ozimals's seventh birthday. Besides the update's new additions, we're celebrating in many different ways: Free food, Bingo, Ancient Everlasting Timepieces, a new limited-edition elite, and more! Be sure to pick up your free food at the main store, and read all about the Oziversary festivities!


Wizard of Oz 2017 Elite!


Also new today for Oziversary: a limited-edition elite bunny, Wizard of Oz 2017, with a chance of a limited-edition genetic trait! This bunny will only be available this month, and then he'll climb into a hot air balloon and float away forever! Check out the blog post about him for pictures and information.


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 4.3 are: Lipstick, Lotus, Gold Dust, Jade Sea, Kiwi, Laguna, Helios, Chile, Scarlet, Mana, Atlantis, Goldfish, Pride, Rowan, and Praline.


Bunny Follows now boosts Happiness!

In the bunnies' last update, we introduced Bunny Follows, which allows you to "wear" your bunny and have him or her hop alongside you, rather than be held in your avatar's arms. This time, we've tweaked it so that just like a bunny worn on your Spine, Chin, or Right Hand, a Following bunny will gain Happiness over time.


Happy updating!

Pay No Attention to the Bunny Behind the Curtain...

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Once upon a time, the Land of Oz was ruled by the Wonderful Wizard of Oz. He wasn't a member of the royal family of Oz--in fact, he wasn't from Oz at all!--so at first the people of Oz were uncertain about their new ruler's strange ways, especially when he pined for his exotic faraway homeland of "Omaha". Soon, they learned that while he was a very powerful wizard, he used his mighty magic to protect and improve the Land of Oz. Even after Ozma returned to the throne, he remained in the Emerald City, learning new magic from Glinda and coming up with marvelous new inventions. This year, we've chosen to celebrate Oziversary with an elite bunny in his honor: The Wizard of Oz 2017 elite!

Wizard of Oz 2017 elite bunny pack!

Each pack includes one limited-edition elite bunny nest and one Standard Level 2 Omni food. These nests are random gender, and are version 4.3, so that they ALSO have the chance at 4.3's new genetics.

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. This elite bunny has the chance of carrying its own limited-edition genetic trait, which he or she can pass down; this genetic trait will only be available from this elite, though, and these packs will vanish forever at the end of January!

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 trait!

Wizard of Oz 2017 packs are available from:

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