DESCRIPTION

This is a really simple mod that adds a new part: Improved Docking Port. Currently the only improvement over the stock docking port is that it can dock with other docking ports (both stock and "Improved") that are part of the same craft! This makes it possible to use a robotic arm to perfectly position modules and move things between docking ports. More improvements could be made in the future.

Known Issue: the undock button does not show up in the part inspector panel. The only way to undock is to deactivate one of the docking ports.

    I am on mobile but sometimes with normal docking ports the just stick right after undocking so I have to deactivate the docking port at all times except docking.

    Copy the download link and then paste the link address onto another browser on your PC. You will find your desired file in the folder you have the other browser's targeted download folder after downloading. Then copy the .mod file to this folder >
    \AppData\LocalLow\Jundroo\SimpleRockets 2\Mods < in your C:\Users\ folder.
    You will be able to activate the mod within the sim after this.

    docking will work perfectly if there are 2 craft. what you make is one craft with 3 chip commands, it's impossible if docking will work fine

    @Abid20 In your example there is no actual part connection between the group of parts the "other" docking port is connected to and the main craft. That means even though this are the same craft in the designer they are actually two crafts once launched (this is self evident in the fact that the rover can drive away from the docking port on the ground). If you want an example of why this mod exist here is a craft without the mod where the two docking ports will not connect, and here is a similar craft with the mod where the improved docking port successfully connects to a legacy docking port.

    @McDuetchVan Yup, that's it right now. Sorry for the letdown if you were hoping for more. I think I could include a few more things sometime soon:

    • Improved attractor physics
    • Adjustable tolerance setting
    • Camera vantage point

    I'm open to more suggestions, so feel free to post them in the comments here. Also the source code is publicly available, I welcome pull request, and we need more mod developers!

    Wait so the only improvement is that it's a functional docking post that connects to other docking ports???

    @theUSSR there are a lot of suggestions, so it may be true that most won't get done, and certainly won't in the short term. However the developers do listen to feedback.

    @LVCSPACE As with all mods it is not possible to install them on the mobile platforms. If you like the idea of a docking port that can dock with other ports on the same craft I suggest you upvote this suggestion
