It occurs to me that "artificial gravity" can be trivially created by simply following one of two methods:
A) Always be accelerating or decelerating perpendicular to the desired plane of gravity.
B) Put out a tether to a chunk of your mass and spin.
In this design, the "saucer section" has a gravity wheel, which is also good. Let the "turbo lifts" work out moving between modes.
Gimbal all of the living spaces perhaps.
