Description: The Wayfarer-class Medium Transport (Twin Pod Refit) is a build of the Wayfarer-class capable of supporting two Detachable Pod Modules instead of the one offered by standard Wayfarer's. Pictured is a Wayfarer with the Hangar Modules installed. However, these Pods were highly modular and could be reconfigured to what ever needs the owner desired. Some Pods could be used entirely for cargo space, others could be configured for passengers/troops or medical equipment.
If the special gear can be redone to better fit with previous submissions, I can give my approval. Trying to read it as is has me confused. Not sure if the special gear and the way its added should be added together, which would make this at twenty points, or just five.

Well, the issue is that because the cargo pods are modular, they have a variety of different configurations. There is no "one size fits all" type thing. For example, one configuration could be just the cargo pods which would only be 1 point. But you could have a cargo pod and a hangar bay pod, or two hangar bay pods. so it can be anywhere from 9 points to 11 points depending upon configuration, and I know a couple entries previously have had special gear with different numbers depending upon the load outs. I mean, if you'd prefer I can just sum the medical gear into 4 points, and clarify in the description that the special gear points would fluctuate based on configurations of the pods?

In a manner of speaking, that is accurate. Cargo pods can be configured in a number of different ways and I’m just trying to cover the most overarching configurations. Especially since most of these all take points but not every ship is going to use all of them. So one person may use a medical pod and a hangar pod. Someone else might use two hangar pods. Or a hangar pod with a barracks.

I do like this idea as it does save the space of four different configurations. It would mean then that anyone who uses this ship would need to specify what configuration it is AND, if its ever changed, specify what it is changed to.
