There is an autopilot for the SLS by pclaurent. Just scroll up, it is called "orionap.zip".
It is an MFD, has to be activated in the Orbiter launchpad.

On the other topics: Sorry, but I have no time for serious development. This small update is just to enable the launch alternative with FalconHeavy. But I am open to include a better launch scenario, if someone writes one.

I really don't like to complain and the work done with Orion is awesome but from what I can tell the AP is a mess. Now I'm not a computer guy but over the years with the help of others on this site I am better at this but this AP is a mess and no need to be this screwed up. Boy I don't know where to start. No Orion AP MFD that I can see to start with. Maybe you get get brianj to make an AP that is user friendly,

Sorry, I missed that the zip-file contains the cfg-file only.
The Orion-Autopilot MFD is on Orbithangar:

I tried it in Orbiter 2016 and it went as planned.
Maybe an installation issue? It needs modifying the ScriptMFD.cfg:

From the manual:
Installation
1. Unzip the installation file in the Orbiter root directory (e.g. C:\Orbiter2016).
2. Go to <root directory>\Config\MFD, open file ScriptMFD.cfg and add a line containing
MFD\OrionAP.cfg
3. Put a semi-colon at the beginning of unneeded script MFD lines if you like. For example:
MFD\OrionAP.cfg
;MFD\Attitude.cfg
;MFD\TestMFD1.cfg
;MFD\TestMFD2.cfg
4. In the Modules tab of Orbiter launcher, check the ScriptMFD checkbox.

Thanks for the help but I'll stick with the other SLS that works well with MS15.
I don't see anything that says root directory I did open a file that said orbiter added the line and did the semi colons but just didn't work for me hopefully it works for every body else. you and gattis really should work together on the VC, he has a very good one for his Orion 606
