With Orbiter 2010, there is an AutoFCS that will land the shuttle on a runway hands free. Sadly it doesn't work in 2016.

To land on a pad on an airless body (or very thin atmosphere) there is
PursuitMFD 2016
for Orbiter 2016.

I think the only way you can get it is with the SF.

Not sure what you are asking. Shuttle fleet gives you various model of the space shuttle

For propulsive landings I use Pursuit MFD 2016.

It can be used for belly-landers (like the Delta Glider) and tailsitters (like the Apollo LM).

Second that, PursuitMFD works well. You can do an Apollo style landing with it.

But I guess for a flying brick like the Space Shuttle neither would auto land in 2016, right?

If the shuttle would hold a 35-40 degree AOA angle during approach(so..COG-shift), the GlideslopeMFD autopilot might be an option at least for an automated reentry.
However, landing must be then done then manually.
Doing automated roll-reversals was only possible using AUTOFCS, iirc.

Landings are automated according to safety procedure.

IMHO what's really needed to deorbit and land the shuttle is an equivalent to GPC MFD.

You need energy and horizontal dist to runway info, to help calibrate your descent and approach.

Anyone know of a 2016 replacement or upgrade to GPC?

Thanks!

As mentioned earlier in this thread: This MFD is quite precise, it even comes with a tutorial:
