I was looking at stations earlier, like I have in the past and there is something that always irked me.

Some stations have docking ports, and others have docking bays. What is the exact difference?

I assume that bays actually dock the ship inside the station while ports are an external docking mechanism. Do docking ports still take from the W/V of the station as bays do?

I remember back few years ago there was some use for the Ports, I think maybe being able to transfer vehicles between them or something, but I can't really remember anymore.

Docking Ports no longer have any effect.

Are there some future plans for docking ports, or those will vanish in time?

So I have a question about docking bays. Exactly how large of a vehicle can a docking bay hold? For example: could the Horizon Star Yacht's (http://www.swcombine.com/rules/?Freighters&ID=183) docking bay hold the ATR-6 Assault Transport (http://www.swcombine.com/rules/?Freighters&ID=110)?

No, it cant. Both weight cap and volume cap of ship must be calculated. Both weight and volume of ATR cant fit in Horizon.

look at the weight and volume cap of a ship then compare that to the weight and volume of another ship and if the second ship is lower on both numbers than the firsts cap then yes

Thank you very much for the quick reply.
