what is so hard about...

    ...adding slots for tameables? What does this unbalance? Whom does it harm? Even the non-tamers would love to be able to stable more of the nonskill stuff like squirrels, horses, beetles, pack animals.

    This has been asked for over and over again. With every expansion we get new tameables, sometimes even with in between publishes, yet the Devs ALWAYS turn a deaf ear to this request.

    Jeremy please get us an answer as to why this is continually cast aside. Something besides we didn't allot time for it. In all these years the small amount of time necessary could have easily been snuck in.

    I believe you will find the stable system is an old system, that is separate from other UO systems.

    I believe you will find there are .... problems with this system.

    It is why DD and pals made it possible to Turn your pet into a Statuette of the Pet and turn it back. This was to be a temporary solution while they fixed (or attempted to fix) the larger issue mostly surrounding expansion of stable space. One can see how to fix this as being to "Limit" the number of stable slots per character.

    The UO Team should really just obsolete the Stables and turn the mechanism to Convert Pets to Statues to Pets back on and then impose meaningful rules on it.

    Perhaps it can ONLY be done in a secure container in a Bank or House or a Box that must be secured in the House (or a Hitching Post etc).

    The reason has been stated a few times at the townhalls. Reason being they have to look at the current database to store such extra critter and calculate how many allowed per char for whatever reasons. And take into account the impact of those numbers biting into that particular DB. They are aware of the want and need. (Trust me every townhall, I've been too and listen too... Stable slots were always a hot topic) As much as I want more stable slots for my tamers, I also understand it's kinda low priority against a lot of other things.

    Increased stable slots are coming. As soon as they can come up with a way they can charge you for them without being too obvious.

    Your right, it will cost you at least $9.99.

    I wouldn't mind paying $10 for a token that could be used by any toon to grant that toon "Total Slots" = "Normal Slots" + " 4 Bonus Slots" or something like that... with max of one or two tokens usable per toon.
