    Meaning: Each Account, regardless of its age, has now 720 skill points to spare?
    If it's a Yes = Awesome.

    I was once again being frustrated by my second account's 700 skill cap this morning and briefly considered opening another whine thread about that issue.

    :cheerleader:
    But it is finally FIXXXEEED! Hurray!
    Just LOVE how it is listed as a BUG fix, hahaha...
    :cheerleader:

    Slightly disappointed that the Kings Collection doesn't contain any clothing items. I'd love new fancy dresses and prettier looking cloaks/mantles. Preferably with some spawning with stats on them that can compete with the ranger's cloak and conjurer's garb.

    How much does it cost to add the King's Collection to an account?l

    I hate to ask, but will there be extra GMs around this weekend in case there are any bugs with the 2nd house feature and people inadvertently end up condemning their primary house?

    Really? are Mesanna and the rest of the UO team so desperate for players they are removing about the only 'veteran' perk (720.0 skill cap for all players) remaining in hopes of attracting more players?
    seriously, the idea of 'let's make a day 1 newbie as equal to a 4 yr veteran' was about as brilliant as the idiot who thought that screen door on a submarine would work well in the tropical waters.
    The ages old adage, "Less is more" applies well here. The less skill points a newbie has evokes 'more' incentive to play, keep an account active, and work towards becoming a veteran player. This is a blatant slap in the face to ALL veteran UO players proving that Mesanna & her team do not care about veteran UO players. They only wish to try and appease a few who have made noise on the forums. 1st was the removal of the Ethereal Horse requirements. then the removal of age requirements to 'use' veteran rewards, only certain 'age' to claim them, and now they have removed the advantage of being a veteran player and having kept an account active for a period of 4 years or longer. these actions all basically say to the masses, "we want you to come play UO and we are trying to give you every last thing possible, including giving new players veteran status."

    "Siege Housing As of 6/21/13, player accounts will be allowed to have one primary house placed on a siege rule set shard (Mugen/ Siege Perilous) as well as one primary house placed on a non siege rule set shard." They need to allow another house on the lower populated shards. Legends, lake austin, etc... They are ghost shards at the moment.

    Seriously, shut up.

    Any idea how this benefits vets tremendously? We can now open secondary accounts that aren't crippled for the next 4 years.
    Until now the only option we had was to buy used accounts from third party websites and pretty much always getting scammed (I have been :( ).

    Does one, or both of the houses on a single account need to be refreshed manually weekly, or do they auto-refresh if your account is active ?

    I think the original plan was to allow you to have a "secondary" house that would need refreshing, but it reads as though both houses will just be normal and remain standing until the account has been inactive for three months.

    Glad to see that they are finally raising the skill cap to be equal for all. I understand why some may be upset about it, but it really is nice to level the playing field for everyone. Vet perks really shouldn't have included increased skill caps in the first place, it really left it unbalanced for new players.

    k just checked test center, cant test the kings theme pack to see if i want it, the dark void dye is almost same color as shroud of condemned, the liquid sunshine looks like the other europa gold knock off dye they released, wth just release a glacial dye and be done with it. this is pointless to be on test center, they could have just turned seige housing on and be done with it.

    While I see why people would want the skill cap raised. It is hardly a level playing field.. Over the 4 years until someone hits the 720 players have had to mix templates and be cleaver with their skill choices and build them each year with that extra reward of 5 skill points. Now there won't be any innovation. people will just stick the newest fad and everyone can have it.

    "720.0 is now the default total skill cap for all players."

    At last I will have that bloody 720 skill cap! :D
    It would be another 2 years till my oldest account would get it, three for the second one and another four for my newest one.
    With these news, I might even consider getting a fourth one.

    When I say level the playing field I simply mean not being restricted to 20 skill points the less simply because the account has not been active as long as others, and I am certainly not speaking strictly to any particular play-style.

    Also, I disagree that making the skill cap equal to everyone will result in people no longer being innovative with their templates. No particular reason, just don't think everyone is so dull as to only follow the "best" build :p

    Should cover most of it. The tables in the top row have big animation cycles with sparks and glowy stuff. Lamps have on and off state (some are pictured on, some pictured off, am lazy).

    Nice stuff, but the chair and loveseat is in 2 directions only so unusable for most people! :mad: :gun:

    What exactly does an Abyss rule set shard include? Is that what they refer to as Siege / Mugen? Is that just a regular server? What is an Abyss rule set :(

    I hope the taller artwork doesn't poke through the floor. Would hate to buy the package and then find out I have to rearrange everything in the house to cover up corners of picture frames, etc., that are poking through the floor. Too bad there's no way to test it.

    I just hope there is some kind of manual refresh on the second house placed on Siege or I fear the shard will be filled with tons of ghost houses eventually...

    its ironic.
    i was sitting at work today and i thought to myself "i wish they would come out with one of those expansions so i could see some new stuff and do some new stuff"
    and i come home and guess what!
    expansion!

    its like they are tapping into the soft inner nugget that is my brain!

    what to wish for now......

    i have never liked the idea of manual refresh.
    sometimes life gets busy.
    there are times when i have to go weeks with no internet (being so remote)
    so to have a house that needs to be refreshed does me no good at all.
    i picked up those massive brit boats to place them on shards that i needed somewhere to live out of.
    but then i put them all away because i was too afraid id miss refreshing one and loose everything.

    i also dont think siege has much to worry about.
    its not like overnight we are gonna see 2 million thatched roof cottages.
    houses cost more on siege.
    you cant just buy gold online for siege.

    so.... does this mean server up in 2 days?
    or does this mean we have to wait till we purchase the expansion.
    or when the Pub goes to origin..... or production.....

    So TC has a gate up to the items, but everything (well a lot of the stuff) has been dyed red....YUCK, nothing like the post earlier of the items, so yet again we cant see what they really look like.

    Also disapointing is the fact that you cannot sit in the couches, loveseats, or chairs. WHY NOT????

    My question is we buy the code the same as the Rustic theme pack and we get a token for in game items.... I am wondering how many items we can get wth that token? If its one item off the list for the purchase price its a pretty good way for them to make some cash for UO. I really cannot see a token producing every single one of those items when cashed it. It most likely is going to be like all the other tokens and you get to select one thing.

    it better be more then 1 item per purchase.

    hopefully its like those little green tokens we get for christmas every couple years.
    the ones where you can scroll through and pic what ya want.
    maybe we get a bag of those.
    cause i have no use for 3/4 of the stuff, but there are a couple items i would like.

    I fully agree. Things happen in real life beyond players' control. We've seen UHall posts showing that 90 days for houses is a good buffer against billing problems, and unforeseen circumstances happen.

    City loyalty and housing decay were turned off at the end of last October because of Hurricane Sandy. Officially it was for two weeks, but decay for city loyalty and virtues was never turned back on, right? We were lucky to get power back after a week, a bit outside NYC in the middle of thick suburban forest.

    I'm happy something do happen here but I'm not happy, it is 2 primary houses. If a player stop playing Siege, house should need refresh or he should be able to have the option to place it on a second prodo shard instead.

    An alternative would be only to allow a second house secons house in Malas if they already own a house on a normal shard. Want 2 houses, the Siege one should need refresh or be in Malas.

    I know that is harder to code and this may be a test to how crazy it goes but if someone own a keep or castle on Siege and a house on Prodo, they should need to refresh one of them.

    I hope this are meant as a quick help to Siege and Mesanna will keep an eye on it and maybe add more rules later if we get trouble with large ghost houses.

    On the bright side, I can now place a little house on my old shard Atlantic but as I don't think I really would play there, I don't think I will place one there.
