for KSP 1.8.x - 1.11.x (v1.1.0)

About: 

Smart Docking Aid adds two new SAS modes to level 3 probe cores and level 3 pilots. Most KSP-players know the issue with aligning two docking ports correctly while docking two ships or station parts together. Smart Docking Aid's new mode aligns the player controlled ship's docking port to the target docking port. So you only have to translate your ship in front of the target docking port and move forward until it docks. There is no more weird camara movement necessary to see if you will dock properly or ram your target out of orbit.

Smart Docking Aid introduces two new SAS modes: Parallel- & Parallel+. Both modes can help you align parallel to a desired target (i.e. orient towards the normal direction of the targeted part/docking port)

Thanks!

Along side the "All SAS Modes" settings, beware that when playing default Sandbox or Science mode (and in general when deactivating the "Kerbal XP" setting), all kerbals have full SAS capabilities, confer link below.

This should already be taken care of. Sounds like when you enable that setting all kerbals already have their maxed out level (5). As soon as this number is equal or higher than the value specified in the config file the checker for an experienced enough pilot will pass.

@ValiZockt Wow, this looks super useful, it's definitely going in my GameData :D

Does it have a navball icon? That'd be the only extra thing I need for this to replace the Navball Docking Alignment Indicator entirely.

Thanks, sadly it doesn't have a navball icon. I didn't wanted to completely copy DPAI, not sure on how either mic_e or @linuxgurugamer would feel about that, tho it would be very cool. Im definitely see what's possible in this regard.

As long as you stay within the license, I don't have a problem.  Go for it.
