Lunar Space Shuttles

Writing modules for the vessels from this addon:

Features implemented:
Thrusters (RCS unfinished), particle streams, docking port, attachment point (insofar nonfunctional), nonfunctional VC-type-thing (the same as in the original.)

Features planned:
One-key attachment handling (grab/drop). Currently a PITA.

Floodlight. Should be simple.

Nameplate dependant on scenario line. Sounds complicated.

Question: What is the simplest way to tell the vessel to detach a child when the J key is pressed? I've sort of used Atlantis's method (well, it isn't working quite yet actually) but it seems unnecessarily complicated for my purpose. Payload attachment by J is a secondary objective ATM.

Edit: Attached an alpha release, for no reason really.

Edit2: Removed from forum; uploaded to OrbitHangar.

    It's awesome! I changed up a few of the textures too (just the door and the caution sign so far), the model isn't perfect, but overall it looks good.
    Why are the docking ports so small? Should I retexture them to reflect their not-being-APAS?

    I'd make a 2D panel, but then you'd have such a load of work...

    Attachment handling now works. J to jettison.
    All that's left is RCS thruster definitions and then v1.0 will be up if anyone cares.

    My favourite part was when you underrated the hover engines thrust by an order of magnitude.
    The simple attachment system sounds nice...

    Well, maybe it won't be up today.

    It would be nice to know whether it was rejected or the administrator simply didn't check his inbox yet. The suspense is killing me.
