Thanks LP but I tried that. The normal method of docking via scenario editor doesn't seem to work.

FFJumbo2008.zip, 15 megabytes, by Jon Marcure and Shawn Beard! Unarchive the files into a temp folder. I use C:\Temp. You should see seven folders that needs to be copied into Orbiter2016! One of the folders, Modules, has everything that Orbiter needs to run the addon! In that folders is another one called, Plugin. In that folder is FFSControl.dll & FFMControl.dll, these are mfds/managers that you need to active to use the shuttles and Cargo sleds!

Thanks for that CT, I've already activated those two modules.

Ctrl-F4 brings up the manager so you can make changes. Or you use the Function Menu in Orbiter 2016. The shuttles are "Attached" to the Firefly, that process is outlined in the manual!

Cheers for that. I've used another method by editing the scenario file.

Thanks for your responses.

This is an awesome ship, I love it. The only thing I can't figure out is how to dock this vessel to a station. It has only one docking port (right under the cockpit) and with no downward thrust ability of the vehicle, it is almost impossible for me to align it with the targets docking port.

I tried to rotate the ship (so it is upside down related to the target) and apply small corrections, than rotate it back, but I find that way is very cumbersome and just feels wrong. In the TV series the Serenity could apply up and down forces without issues, but this is not the case with this model. How do you guys manage to dock this ship?
