Hi all, i was wondering is there a plugin that can send key press events to a remote vessel? I was having fun with UCGO and getting cargo containers over from a DGIV or bigger ship to the Arrow is quite a pain as i have to switch between the Arrow and DG a lot.
So i thought it might be cool to be able to just sit in the DG, throw out the cargo containers and send a remote "c" key to the arrow so it grapples them.

I haven't found any plugins for this yet.. so has this been done yet? If not i'd try to do a quick and dirty hack of the Remote Control plugin to add such a feature.

Orbiter 2010 has a method called "SendBufferedKey".

Allright.. i have hacked a send key function into the remote control plugin. Works fine for me.. if anyone wants to give it a try you can download it from www.nestadlinn.de/orbiter/downloads/RControlKey.zip

I'm not quite sure if i have gotten all the keymappings right because i'm using a german keyboard, so if you encounter mapping errors please let me know.
