Dang, he is fast. Almost as fast as I am slow and meticulous.

Vector, how do you do it?

And do we have to call the "booster engines" booster engines? "Auxiliary thrusters" would seem like a more likely term to be used.
This really was just a quick and dirty floorplan sketch. It helps that I have a degree in drafting and computer-aided design, so this type of drawing is something I have quite a lot of experience with, only this was quicker and easier because it was literally just a sketch.

As for the "booster engines," I've never been totally happy with that name either, but "auxiliary engines" doesn't quite work either. Their main purpose is for takeoffs and landings and orbital maneuvering. I'm open to suggestions on better names.
