Not sure if this will get to you, but here it goes.
I know people have been bringing up the point that they would like to see more ship types and I couldn't agree more.
It would be great to see certain new ships, perhaps stronger in different ways; speed, weight, turning, damage, resistance, etc., or combinations all gained through quest lines. Harder the quest line, better the ship outcome, but of course balanced.
By making these ships gained through quest lines I think this would be more fun than just leveling up for a new ship. Still keep the current ones for leveling but they would be the base models and the more exotic or skill derived ships can come from a quest line.
Also, maybe the a similar thing for some new sails.
If you already have something planned, let us know, that would be great!
