Unfortunately the code for AUTOFCS is not available to it can't be redone for 2016

Would be cool if the data from GlideslopeMFD would be read out, to control the vessel's pitch.
This might be not helpful for the default shuttle, as there is no COG-shift code built-in.
However, for testing the XR-vessels might be good candidates, they offer an API, where i.e. the AOA can be remote-controlled. (I.e. feed by data from GlideslopeMFD).
GlideslopeMFD uses ModuleMessaging IPC-API.
So the chain would be:

Full automated reentry....only the HAC needs to be flown manually.

I am "dreaming" about this for a while now...but failed miserably due to my zero-programming-skills....

PursuitMFD, GlideslopeMFD, HoverMFD are all really good and helpful for landing.

This video shows a direct reentry and landing on Mars using HoverMFD in the final stages to land a heavy XR5. Fly it all the way up to the stall and then activate it as late as possible for minimum fuel consumption.
