Up to now only some concept art was published. I think the offer of SpaceX (or any other competior) was not disclosed - correct me, if I am wrong.

When looking back to the first pictures of the Mars Colonial Transport, that became BFR and then Starship, this changed quite a lot in size and performance. On the other hand, Starship is already flying, so the cornerstones of its design are determined. Still, all this on-orbit tanking is a far way to go, and reducing the number of tanker flights may be worth to improve mission reliability.

I'd think that a SpaceX way to reduce the number of tanker flights would be to start sourcing LOx from lunar ice.
This way they can also take advantage of all that payload capacity to bring up excavators, electrolysis plants and personnel to operate them ;)

A scenario using AMSO and the Dynethics lander

Fixed it should be AMSO

What do you mean by "MASO"? Do you mean "AMSO"? IDK why the historic Apollo stuff are relevant with the ALPACA lander by Dynetics.

Edit: I have noticed that the rovers and the EVA suits are from AMSO. Therefore, AMSO is necessary for the EVA suits and rovers.
