Finally, a map that respects the basic concept of a docking ring!
Is there a particular reason you put the cockpit access corridor in the bow pylon rather than the aft pylon, without also exploiting the additional space in the wing?

I tried to mimic the floorplan of the Outlander as much as possible, so the corridor was very small, though the space was larger. No other reason.

Niiiiice, this is awesome. I hope you don't mind me using this as a layout for a roll20 star wars: edge of the empire rpg that I'm in. My character recently got himself a yt-2400 and having a layout like this would be so useful.

always bugs me how little cargo space some of these ships have, and why does a 6 person ship need a medical bay? i'd replace the med-bay and 'workshop' with more cargo space personally.

It's not a cargo-carrier. It's a courier, which specializes in small, easily-moved cargo and people transport. The medical facilities would be useful if the crew happened to need treatment on a long voyage. The galaxy is a dangerous place, full of pirates and creatures that can make having the proper medical facilities nearby a vital aspect of your mission.

When you're using a transport ship for adventuring and smuggling, cargo space doesn't become very important. But to each their own.

smuggling implies cargo space, not sure what 'adventuring' is but it must pay a hell of alot to offset keeping the ship in the sky. fuel, mantenance, docking fees, port authority inspections, up-to-date starcharts and a hundred other things need to be paid for by the profits of each and every venture and some of that stuff ain't cheap.

look at modern freight shipping. bush-planes in alaska, transport trucks, airliners, and big cargo ships. not alot of luxuries on any of them because it costs money to go long distances and you've gotta live between the margins.

might be fun to run with a passenger ship, transporting different exotic dignitaries and travelers in first-class style while avoiding the tangle of their own schemes.

not saying the design is impossible, merely implausible, and yet a similar layout shows up ALL THE TIME. on firefly having a med-bay and doctor made them special, a cut above the rest. in star wars it just seems run of the mill, and yet that makes SO LITTLE SENSE...

The ship itself isn't designed to contain cargo, but propel attached cargo containers.  That's my understanding, anyway.

The cargo question bugged me forever, too.
