Is the Flower Power reward sheep really supposed to look like it escaped from minecraft? Punk Sheep and Cyber Sheep on the other hand are hillarious. :D
Otherwise nice update for what I've seen now; keep up the good work. Just one thing - was this only for me or is the update indeed 1 GB big?

Hey Maximo,

Yep - the update is just a little over 1GB. The "Flower Power" sheep currently named incorrectly, it will be renamed soon!
