(I had a flight of whimsy and @Daraius
encouraged me to go with it. So here we are!)
It's been a common complaint that most designs are crafted with the intention of stocking up private cartels. While in the case of city and commune-specific cartels there is still a larger audience for the designs, it's unfortunately true that public design catalogues can, at times, be lacking. This can especially be overwhelming for newer players, who have yet to join or own private design cartels.
Enter designers and trademasters like myself who find ourselves bored from time to time, and are in need of some inspiration! How many of us actually use those public cartel slots? This is a chance to be creative and to give back.
So, friends: what designs would you like to see more of in the public catalogues? You can be as broad or specific as you like ("I want cheaper vials made from X commodities" for example, or "I'd like more designs with X theme"). Ask, and it is possible you shall receive.
