Bunny Update 2.2
Feb 13th 2013, 00:47

Hello, Ozimals friends!

Welcome to Bunny Update 2.2! Please read these notes carefully before you begin updating!

Update 2.2 is a non-mandatory update. What this means is that your bunnies will continue to eat for two weeks if not updated, though each food you have rezzed out will message you once a day to remind you to update. The cutoff date is February 26th. If you are not able to be inworld and updating until later, your bunnies will not go hungry until then. If your bunnies are not updated, they will not be able to breed with updated bunnies.


*Nest Kindling Timer Fix

*Valentine's Day Elite / Limited Edition Trait


*Nest Kindling Timer Fix

Spring is just around the corner--and in the spring, a young bunny's thoughts turn to... uh, faster nest kindling. With this update, the 30-minute kindle time returns for good! All nests created by v2.2 bunnies will take 30 minutes, not 60, to kindle.

*Valentine's Day Elite / Limited Edition Trait

Ozimals is celebrating Valentine's Day this year with an elite bunny pack available exclusively from Ozimals. This pack contains nest dye, a limited-edition holiday food, and a random-gender nest which will produce an Amour 2013 elite. These nests have unlocked ears and shades, which means that the bunnies inside them can have any currently available ear or shade.

The special holiday food is a 30-day Level 2 food which gives a +5.0% bonus to the Love of bunnies eating it. It behaves like an Aphrodisiac food, but feeds one bunny for 30 days rather than seven days.

The Amour 2013 bunnies have the chance of a limited-edition genetic trait, which they can pass to their offspring. This trait will only be available from these bunnies and their descendants, and the bunny packs will only be sold through February 26th, 2013.

Amour 2013 packs and Version 2.2 Updaters are available from:

The Ozimals main store

The Ozimals satellite store @ Shamrock Market (new location!)

The Ozimals shop on Marketplace

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

If you need a location to update your bunnies, Ozimals Orientation islands have a sandbox type update area where you can rez your bunnies in a quiet area and chat with other bunny peeps while you do it! (Updating bunnies only here, please don't build!)  LMs below:

Bunny Update Fields @ Ozimals Orientation 2
Bunny Update Fields @ Ozimals Orientation 3
Bunny Update Fields @ Ozimals Orientation 4


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 version of food just fine.


Preparing to Update:

1. Get the updater, available free from these locations:

The Ozimals main store
The Ozimals satellite store @ Shamrock Market (new location!)
The Ozimals shop on Marketplace

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.  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 30 second delay before the updater begins, (or longer for homesteads)  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 AND WATER so they will detect that the bunnies have been updated. If you use any dispenser or server system, you need to remove the food/water from those systems and rerezz them.

Happy Kindling and Much <3
