Cryptic can you please fix this? None of the D7 line of ships can be customized or have swappable parts between the various ships of the line. There's four ships there so there is no reason these 4 shouldn't be customizable.

Apparently that's been an issue since the game launched, I would think since the K'T'Inga recently got a fleet version that would have been fixed.

Considering two of them are practically identical and the other two are so different the resulting ships would probably look horrible, I must say I'm okay with the lack of mix-n-match options on these ships.
What I'm far mor annoyed with is the fact the high-and low-res models are reversed.
Look at NPC ships in the far distance and you'll see lightmaps, detailed hull plating...the good stuff.
We're stuck with the smeared textures from the low-res models.
For comparison, this is what the K't'inga looked like in 2010:

I think we all agree, this is NOT what it looks like now.

Wow those pics look alot better then the current textures. I don't think the current one even has a glow to the nacelle. I didn't notice before because I've never had one that wasn't using the Honor Guard overly provided by the shield.

Wish they would go back give the whole D7 model line a good improvement.

I does look that wonderful, but only at a distance where you can barely see it.
Like I said the models are reversed.
The High resolution version is shown when it's far away, beyond the maximum zoom level.
I managed to make two pictures that should illustrate this a bit better:

The exact same K't'inga a bit close to the camera

...and the details are gone.
