That sucks, tho I can understand some reasons why. But still, it'd be awesome to see some similar designs.

Agreed, or at lest work out some deals to expand the ship designs.

Yeah, as unangbangkay has stated, but I also understand the reasons. Copy rights are sometimes a real pain.

Yeah, I'd love to see some unique Cryptic designed ships.
