tethers have a very important use: It would allow you to secure the needed amount of kerbals for moving/attaching objects which have more than the maximum amount of mass that a single kerbal can lift.

I just thought of a kerbal  dragging a 60 kg bag behind him.

If we’re getting same vessel interactions, could that system be extended to make a basic Eva tether system? (Even better if it makes the Eva pack available as a research item instead of from the start)

The kraken is salivating at the thought of elastic kerbal tether physics. I support it.

You could always use the KAS winches as a substitute for a real tether. I did this long ago before I was comfortable doing EVA work, I could just retract the winch if I got too far away from the craft.

An EVA tether would be amazing! No need to worry about your kerbals floating off when switching between lots of modules!

I dont have the DLC, but a substitute could be a bunch of those snakey joints with an external command seat at the end.  Best part is that it can double as an advertisement for your local used car dealer.

Overlapping Threads have been merged.  IIRC, there was some decent work done on a mod, should be farther back in the thread.
