Forgive me I am new and this question may sound stupid but I have two questions that need answering before I decide if I want to spend money on UO:SA...

1) Does the "New Player UO:SA" pack give a new player everything that they need to fully enjoy UO like all the previous add-on's ect?

2) I have signed up for a 14 day free trail will I still be able to purchase the "New Player UO:SA" pack and get the free 30 days as well?

Again sorry if this is in the wrong area or if these questions sounds stupid but I like to make informed choices before buying stuff and I've tried looking for the answers on this forum with no luck.

Thanks in advance!

~Danny

As for 1) Yes, UO has always been a buy the latest and get access to all previous expansions

Not sure on how the 14 Day works. Sorry.

The new player SA pack is basically an account code for a new account. If you have a trial account, you can pay the cheaper upgrade code, but you won't get those 30 days free. Still, saving that $10 means you basically got your 14 days free and can use that $10 towards the monthly payment. In the end, I think you come out ahead. It's what I did because I wanted to open up a brand new SA account.

Many games include previous expansions in their latest now, because if you have a lot of expansions released, it becomes awkward for the buyer to get what they want with no knowledge of the game.

Remember all of EQ's different expansions? It got ridiculous until they started only releasing all-inclusive sets.

though I thought I read somewhere that if you bought a new account code, you did not get access to the crystal and shadow tiles sets for housing, as that was an early buyer promotion from before. Though I might have miss read that.

Sablestorm on your new account down you have crystal and shadow tiles available?

The Crystal and Shadow Tiles are a feature of the 9th anniversary edition and as such they are not included with SA. It's similar to how the 8th age featured a 6th character slot, but when you bought expansions after that this feature wasn't included.

Personally, I find them hideous, don't feel like youre missing out on anything, lol

And the crystal furniture, crystal tileset and similar shadow items were not early buy rewards but part of the 9th Anniversary "expansion" that wasn't really an expansion.

I think the 8th age came with the sixth char clot and when you got 9th anniv. you got a chance for a seventh char slot. I'm pretty sure I've got seven chars.


Hrm. Anyway 7th anniv. came with Ultima IX: Ascension I believe. I forget what came with "Eighth Age" but then after that there was Ninth Anniv. So you had three annivesaries celebrated with a boxed game.

The 9th anniversary edition bounced around on that. Earlier accounts got more character slots, but no longer. The last 9th edition account I created only had 5 slots. The 7th slot is available via a UOGameCodes upgrade, just like extra housing storage is available there.
