You forgot to add that Cryptic most definitely has deadlines, sort-of set work hours, and probably have no desire to take their work home with them.
So yeah, I'd sort of expect Joe Free-Time after work with months on end to map every weapon hardpoint as accurately as possible will turn out better work than Mike Ship-Guy who has to put out a ship every two weeks* and pray nothing goes wrong else the next ship he has to do in two weeks might end up rushed.
Does it really come as a surprise to you that fanmade stuff turns out better most of the time, with that in mind?
