Default Mars Polar Lander and Deep Space 2 impactor probes

Another mission not added on Orbiter? I have multiple ideas for more addon requests and one of them is the failed Mars Polar Lander and Deep Space 2. the addon can recreate the hypothetical mission, including the simulation of the Deep Space 2 atmospheric entry and impact, and launch on BrianJ's Delta II.

The Mars Polar Lander, also known as the Mars Surveyor '98 Lander, was a 290-kilogram robotic spacecraft lander launched by NASA on January 3, 1999 to study the soil and climate of Planum Australe, a region near the south pole on Mars. It formed part of the Mars Surveyor '98 mission. On December 3, 1999, however, after the descent phase was expected to be complete, the lander failed to reestablish communication with Earth

I wonder if Phoenix would work:
Phoenix Mars Lander

The probes are mostly identical.
Perhaps it's only a matter of creating a MPL specific scenarios ?

except the solar arrays would have to be modified to make the MPL lander.

Somebody needs to contact @BrianJ about the MPL and DS2.

Here is the image of the Mars Polar Lander's diagram if anyone is looking.
