Ozimals Spring 2014 Hunt

Dancing Down the Path

Every now and then Ozimals makes us all very happy campers by holding a rather unique hunt, more along the lines of RMK's Bunny Hunt than your standard Second Life "find the little object in the store" hunts. There is finding small things involved, but it's more complicated than that. It started on 4/16 and goes until 4/23, so you have some time but not a ton. The starting point is here, and Ozimal's official blog is here. There is a sign for you to click at the landing point which will give you a very important folder, which contains instructions and a basket for you to wear as you hunt. Sonya Marmurek made a wonderful post about the event as well, which includes pictures of two rare bunnies available during the event as hunt prizes.

You start with this basket - in this case a pretty Easter Eggs basket that has room for six eggs - and then you go looking around the sim to find eggs for this very special basket. They can be just about everywhere, but I found the spots which went unnoticed the most were ones high up - like on top of fences, or tucked into lighting fixtures - and the hidden ones, like several inside of various flower bells. Sooner or later you'll find six, though, and when you do my favorite part comes up - it asks you what store you want a prize from. Each store chosen gives you a stack of eggs for your head from each of the short list of stores. Most of the stores offer one prize, but katat0nik threw a wrench into all of our plans by having three different dresses available; what I did was get six different katat0nik stacks, to hedge my bets at the prize gathering point.

Starting Points

You can choose how you want to time things; I gathered all the stacks I wanted and then went through the stores because that area had the most people, but there are eggs which pop up near the stores, so you can fulfill your stack making tasks while getting your prizes as well. The prize gathering point is when to be the most careful; I ended up trying to trade in a stack while the sim was struggling with all of the scripts, and ended up not getting a prize the first time (easy enough to make another stack, though; yay!), so try to wait untilt he sim is running well before you take this step. Wear the egg stack on top of your head and find the store you want - they're all in one area, so it isn't difficult - and go near the in-store basket. Then, once in place, click the egg stack on your head and soon a prize will be rolling its way into your inventory. Since katat0nik offered three different prizes, you'll get one of the three options each time; it took me five tries to get all three, but they are so gorgeous it was well worth it.

And that's it - all the steps. Simpler, now:
  1. Wear the basket.
  2. Find eggs.
  3. After six eggs, select a store from the menu.
  4. Wear store egg stack and go to store.
  5. Clock egg stack.
  6. Profit!
