Thanks gattispilot for help! Yes, you shouldn't download UACS-master.zip as this file contains the source code and no compiled modules. Download AlphaX.zip instead.

Trying out things. I was not able to grapple the cargo. And was not able to release. or Unpack. From the menu it looks like I should be able to unpack/pack cargoes from the eva guy, right?

Specific commands (grab, pack, etc) work only in the HUD mode specific to that command, it seems.
Not sure what you mean? I saw the command in the HUD of the EVA guy. BUt seems like it was n't working

Sorry I wasn't specific. Here's what I mean.

To handle cargo items (to grapple, to drop, to pack, or to unpack), you must switch HUD modes (press ALT-M) and make sure you are in the cargo HUD mode. See below. Pressing ALT-M alternates between various HUD modes. For instance, to enter a vehicle, you must be in the vehicle information HUD mode. You cannot handle cargo in the vehicle HUD mode, or enter a vehicle when you are in the cargo HUD mode.

As to your specific question about grappling and packing/unpacking:

When you're in this HUD mode (I called it the cargo HUD mode for lack of a better name), come close to an item, like the flag, and press ALT-G to grapple it. To drop a grappled item, press ALT-R.

To pack an item, be sure you are in the cargo HUD mode (see above), and come close to the item you want to pack (do not grapple), and press ALT-P. The item will turn into a cargo box. To unpack, press ALT-U.

Hope this helps.

EDIT: Also, note that the commands do not work when you are in the HUD mode which describes shortcut keys for specific commands.

One thing I have noticed at the poles the guy behaves weirdly. The movement is not correct. At the poles al Malapert for example. If the heading is not 0 the guy moves sideways. General vehicle does this also. But @Max-Q rover doesn't. I am trying to get a rover to work and getting that sideways motion also

Trying to figure thing out. On the cargo. I don't know if you can save the animation state of a cargo vessel.

Also when the cargo is unpacked it is below the surface. But if you move it then it is at ground surface.

Here is how it should be unpacked then the user deploys the array, legs,...
