Default Any good autopilot addons for orbiter 2016?

So I've recently got my orbiter 2016 working again and I'm bad at it again so I'm wondering if there is any autopilot addons (mainly for ascent) that I can use till I slightly begin getting my skills back. Also sorry if I'm posting in the wrong thread area I haven't been on these forums for a while.

HoverMFD is working great in Orbiter 2016.

Glideslope has autopilot for non atmospheric landings. It seems to work fine until hover descent then tends to go a bit mental, so best to manual control after that point.

It's not for accent but for lunar decent (Orbit to landing):

But should work also for other bodies without an atomothphere...

It must be a very light celestial body if you want to land on it with a space shuttle if it has no atmothphere...
