    Just for fun you could wear a real eye patch and play UO with a hook. Just a thought... Aaaarrrrrr.

    At least I would like to see the need for high seas lifted if it comes to enter the new ships.
    Using and controlling them might still be limited, but that it is impossible for players without HS for even entering a ship if the owner agrees, is simply torpedoing teamwork.

    Now why would you want the High Seas deleted?

    Sometimes I feel like I'm the only person that liked High Seas. Oh sure, I don't play it as much as say, Stygian Abyss, but I still think it was a good standalone expansion. I want another expansion (we're due, eh?), not boosters.

    High Seas was a 'booster'. More recently we've had 'theme packs'. Expansions have always expanded the land area - and we really don't need any more of that, we're already spread too thin!
    Mesanna's producer's letter mentioned a new theme pack relating to housing and advanced tinkering. I'm saving my pennies for that at the moment. While I don't think it will be mega expensive, it all adds up when you have more than one account to upgrade.

    I think it is time to let our guildies/friends on the ships. Might spark some interest...

    I do not need to be spending 6 dollars on these piddling theme packs that look like they were slapped together as an afterthought just to suck more money from us. If it is worth 6 dollars then I will happy purchase it, but these packs need to either have much more content or be decreased in price. We are, after all, already paying for our accounts and having to pay 6 dollars on top of that (each account) for content that by many rights should be added for free leaves a bad taste in my wallet.

    I'm not asking for new land masses as I'm aware we have more than enough as it is--and indeed I've been happy with the revamps of Covetous and Despise, as well as the new Shame/Wrong loot. However, it will take more than some new housing tiles and some slapped together quasi-skills like distilling to make me believe that UO cares more about anything than my pocketbook. I would love to see High Seas expanded upon via another booster, but I can't see myself purchasing more deco.

    :thumbsup: High Seas was the last upgrade I did and the main reason was the storage increase and yes some, not all, of the content I liked. Now for the other "Theme Packs" after High Seas I might pay if together they were $6 but no way by themselves are they even close to being worth $6 each.

    Where are people getting prices of $6 for the last two theme packs? I paid $10 each a week ago for them from the origin store.

    Not sure where he got the $6 from but IMHO they arn't even worth that.
