I kinda got the impression the Learstar A1 "shuttle" craft file being included that HarvesteR mentioned was a nod at the MK3 parts, as those are KSP's "shuttle" parts. I may be wrong, though.

Correct. Max confirmed that the MK3 parts didn't perform as well as hoped and would instead be seen in 0.26.

I think lit cockpits visible from the exterior is super cool. Even if the design kids forget exterior lights, manned capsules will be easier to see at night.

It is a nice polish, but I'd be really surprised (read: impressed) if Squad didn't just do this for the SP+ parts and the other windowed parts are left unlit.

Why would the go to all the trouble of writing the module to support it and not use it but on 3 parts? I think you will be surprised. I'm betting at least the Mk1 will have them, but maybe the command pods too. I kinda doubt they would bother with the Mk3 prior to 0.26 though. Hopefully the science bay and hitchhiker will also get it, and even more important, the module is easily used in mods.

I'm not suggesting they'd build a module to support just 3 parts, I'm suggesting they're part features that came with the mod that porkjet already built:

As pretty as it is, I just don't see such a minor art-pass on all parts with windows to add similar polish right now. I hope I'm proven wrong.

Oh I thought it was an emissive. Nevermind. Though I still think you might see them on the Mk1 since they knew about it in the new Mk2 when the were re-doing it.

Light up command pods in mods just use an existing animation module, nothing special or extra needed beyond making the emissive texture, a simple animation curve and the correct module to the config. The placeable lights already use this (otherwise you'd get light but the part itself would look turned off), and the engine heating effect is similar.

Ah, that's a shame. Hangar Management was a winner.
