This OXP gives players who don't have a docking computer the ability to dock at Main Stations using remote guidance technology driven from the station itself, for a small charge. This is similar to facilities available in some versions of Elite (ArcElite and Elite Plus being notable examples).
No special equipment needs to be purchased. When the player approaches the main station they can press "c" to begin the automatic docking process, and 10 Cr will be deducted from their account. If the player disengages the autopilot they will be refunded half this cost. If fast docking is available at a station, the player can also press "Shift-C" to fast dock. If, in the future, the player purchases a docking computer, no further auto-docking charges will take place, unless their docking computers are damaged.
This OXP is based on work by CommonSenseOTB who released a version similar to this for Oolite 1.76/77, but new features in 1.82 allow for a much simpler implementation.
