Universal Cargo System for Orbiter (UCSO) is a free, open-source cargo management system for the Orbiter space simulator. It’s designed to be an Orbiter 2016 alternative of UCGO. It provides a rich API for add-on developers to support UCSO in their creations.

Download from OHM: UCSO - Universal Cargo System for Orbiter.

It may be easier to set the relative velocity via the VESSELSTATUS struct, if DetachChild isn't working as it should - if you're accepting pull requests I'm happy to contribute the code

Alpha 3 released. Changes can be found in CHANGELOG.md file.

I still need meshes, textures, and ground release code.

Going to give it a try. Any thoughts of cargo like in UCGO a crate can have several items so you can pack/unpack

What do you think?

I didn't get any feedback since I started the development. I need feedback from both users and vessel authors to improve UCSO!

Alpha 7 released. Comes with flags and rewritten API interface.

The lamp cargo isn't added, and won't be added until a stable solution to light the ground is found.
